Hamilton Beach Professional Iron

By 

from Elkmont, AL

Comments about Hamilton Beach Iron:

I use this iron several times a week. I mainly iron cottons, but also other fabrics as well. This iron does well with all fabrics that I have ironed so far. It heats up quickly, which is useful. It has a powerful steam, which I really like because I use often. It has an automatic shutoff that is great. However, the iron does seem to drip water when first heating up from being automatically turned off. I normally just give the iron time to drip and then it is great to use.

Performance
Irons clothes well and the iron is powerful so you do not have to keep going over.

Safety
It has an automatic shutoff.

If you have to iron then Hamilton Beach is the iron to buy.

By 

from Dover, FL

Comments about Hamilton Beach Iron:

I hate to iron. It guess it comes from that being my job as a teenager during my formative years at home. I have even been known to pass on buying some really great looking clothing because it had to be ironed after washing! After having an iron for over 20 years and admittedly not using it very often, I was really 'bummed-out' when it gave out on me and I was forced to buy another one. After doing a little searching I finally found the Hamilton Beach 14977 iron that has an automatic shut-off. I took it home dug out the ironing board and tried it out. It went so well I ironed more clothing than I have ironed in many years. It was just heavy enough to feel effective and it glided over the fabric easily and the point fit well into the smaller areas that are usually tough to access. My thoughts are if I had had this iron years ago than maybe I wouldn't have hated ironing as much. I still don't like to iron, but if I am going to iron I am glad I found this Hamilton Beach.

This is a pretty great iron, and I am pretty happy.

Comments about Hamilton Beach Iron:

I broke the family iron a few months ago, so off to the store I went, to buy a new iron. I was not sure what I was looking for but I knew I wanted something from a brand I could trust, that shut off on it's own and was easy to use.

I am so glad I found this Hamilton Beach iron. It was medium priced and had the features I was looking for. It has a stainless steal plate and gets hot very quickly and when one of my kids got something on the face plate it was easy to clean off once it was cool. The light stays on all the time to let you know it is plugged in, so I know from across the room, if I need to go unplug it for that the kids are safe. The water hole is large enough, to make adding water easy to do and the cord is nice and long, so ironing is made easy from any plug in the room.

It is a bit on the heavy side, but still not too bad and there is no light to tell you when it is ready to use, so those are things I would change.

Seriously a piece of junk

By 

from Saint Louis, MO

Comments about Hamilton Beach Iron:

I bought this iron because my husband and I both work at places that have strict dress codes - plus I enjoy the "ritual" of laundry and ironing.

This iron was a replacement for an older Black & Decker iron that had a nonstick soleplate; it finally started wearing out and leaving Teflon (I guess what the nonstick stuff is???) on our clothes. So we began looking in earnest for a replacement. I selected this iron specifically for two reasons: stainless steel soleplate and its weight. After all, a heavier iron should make pressing clothes easier.

Before I go any further, I will let you know that Hamilton Beach has agreed to replace this iron with an identical unit, or one of similar value if I pay "a portion of shipping" and return the plug from this piece of junk.

That said - this iron leaks water like crazy. I filled it following the directions exactly, and water ran out along the seam where the chrom of the handle meets the translucent black plastic of the water tank. I thought, though, that I had possibly overfilled it, so I didn't let it bother me. After a couple of uses, though, I began to notice this leak was consistent - happening all the time.

Steam? Nope. No steam. Just giant glops of water running out of the steam holes, soaking my clothes and leaving water-blotch marks. I was seriously disappointed - my clothes did NOT look good after ironing them, at all. Anyway - returning this one, or at least its plug, and checking reviews here before I pick its replacement.

Do yourself a favor and skip this one.

This iron should not be on the market

By 

from Naples, FL

Comments about Hamilton Beach Iron:

I purchased the first Hamilgton Beach Model 14551 over a year ago. It would spray metal parts all over my clothes and after about  months it stopped working and they replaced it. The second one did much the same as the first, did not get very hot, sprayed metal parts, very bulky and hard to use. I just ditched it and bought a Sunbeam.

This Hamilton Beach iron is okay but I wouldn't buy it again.

By 

from Clarksville, TN

Comments about Hamilton Beach Iron:

My husband bought this iron when he dropped and broke our other one.  It irons fine but it is large and bulky and the temperature dial is in a really awkward place- under the handle!  You have to tilt the iron to see the dial, then reach under the handle and try to turn it!  The steam buttons are right on top where the dial should be.  Luckily my husband does most of the ironing so this will be his challenge. LOL
