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.
