I like the fact that it is light and simple to use, it is not cumbersome and does not have too many functions. Things like that tend to get me confused, it has a control that can be used to the adjust temperature to the desired level. The iron is durable and its cord is strong. It is not a steam iron, so you might have to sprinkle some water on the cloth you are ironing, but it gets the job done and the cloth comes out well ironed because it has a smooth, even surface. It has an attractive design, is affordable and the intructions on the manual are very easy to follow. In all I would say that if you are working on a tight budget, and you need something that will get the job done, then this is a good option. I like its size, it can easily be sqeezed into a travel bag when going on a trip. Its energy consumption is relatively low, all pressing irons consume large amounts of energy but Euro-pro Shark is on the lower end of the energy consumption range. You are getting good returns for your money.
