This iron is expensive compared to other irons in the market today but it is very good for the price. It is heavy, but it smoothes my clothes better that any other iron I have used in the past, inludin much more expensive steam irons that don't do nearly as good a job at smoothing delicate clothing. I think the quality of ironing power is comparable to those of the ones professionals use to iron expensive suits! There are many settings that can be applied, and the settings are easy to control without worrying about choosing the wrong ones. I've used it on many business suits and formal garments and all of them came out creaseless and clean. This iron is a msut have if you're willing to splurge a bit more.
