The Oster 4032 Electric Steam Iron is easy to use and as well made as any really expensive one on the market. I Have not had any trouble with this iron and use it at least a couple times a week. The Oster Iron is teflon coated, so there is no sticking to your clothing as you iron, there is also a lift opening to pour the water in easily which allows you to use either the sprayer or steamer button during ironing, there is a dial that allows you to adjust it for the type of clothing you are ironing. The Oster Iron heats up very quickly so you are not waiting forever to get started and that is a big plus. The oster is also lightweight so being able to travel with it has not been a problem, most motels/hotels seem to have irons now but you just never know if they are working or for that matter what the last person used when ironing their clothing, so being able to carry your own iron that does not weigh a ton is a good option for you. I would recommend this to anyone.
