Over-rated & over-priced. I bought into all the hype that this was a must have iron, that I would never mind ironing again. That the results would be better than any other iron. Nope. An iron seems to be an iron. While the design is nice, ergonomic and all it does not make up for the fact that this iron cost twice what it's competitors cost. It does the job. But no differently than any other iron I ever owned. Easy to use, heats up quickly. If it cost what it's competitors cost, I would be happy. I do not know what I was expecting. There are somethings worth paying more for, I guess an iron is not one of them. I only iron once a week so I do not know about heavy use but it seems to be pretty solid.
