I love the InStyler! I became hooked on it years ago, when it was first being advertised all over the TV and infomercials at night. Once I tried it, I've never gone back. I've only ever had to replace my InStyler one time, and I've been using an InStyler for so many years that I can't even remember how far back it has been. It feels like it's always been a part of my life, honestly. It's durable; it straightens, smooths, and curls, clearing room in your cabinet of all the other hair tools; it doesn't damage hair; and it's quick! Not being one to necessarily care about what my curling iron/straightener looks like, I must say that it's also very sleek looking.
