This is a perfect little iron! Now, I don't iron everything... I don't even iron often. But when I'm sewing and need to press a seam, or crafting, or on the occasion that I'm wearing something extra special - this is the perfect iron for me. 95% of the time I use the steam press function. Pouring the water into the top of the iron is easy (although you should do it slow so that water doesn't spill all over the place). I like the different settings so that I can press easy light cotton or heavy decorator fabric. You do need to make sure that you pour any remaining water out of the iron when done (otherwise, you end up putting the iron down and getting water all over the place, again). There's an easy to read water meter to know when to add more. And there's a cord that is pretty long (I've never had a problem getting it to reach where I am. All in all, a great little appliance that is light and easy to use.
