Things I would rather do than iron: go to the dentist, stub my toe, scrub a toilet, and talk to telemarketers. That list could go on for days, but I think you get the point: I HATE to iron. I found this Oreck Cordless Iron and now my opinion on ironing has changes a LITTLE bit. This iron makes the chore easier! You simply allow this iron to charge on its power base, fill the water tank up, and get to ironing. It is amazing how much of a difference not having a cord makes. There is no cord constantly getting in the way and tangled up. The iron heats up quickly and it takes me no time to have nice wrinkle free clothing. It works fine on thicker fabrics, like denim. When you are done, you simply place it back on the power base. Ease of Use This is easier to use than most irons due to it being cordless. The water tank on the item is easy to fill and you won't be spilling water everywhere like you do with a lot of irons!
