The iron itself is pretty heavy. It's not too bulky though that it gets in the way of use. It is overall pretty easy to handle and comes with multiple settings for different fabrics. I only wish the cord was retractable. This iron is hit or miss for me. Half of the time it does a good job and the other half of the time I am left wondering why I even bothered. The biggest item of clothing I struggle with getting wrinkles out of is my husband's work shirts. I am not a wrinkle freak and expect it to be perfect, but if I'm putting an hour of my time in to doing this I expect good results. When using this iron I often have to go over areas several times until I am satisfied that I got most of the wrinkles out. I then hang the shirt up and move on to the next one. When I go to put all the shirts away I suddenly see multiple wrinkles on areas that I concentrated extra on. I have similar problems with dress pants. It leaves me wondering what I spent all that time on if I am just left with wrinkles anyway. It's a bit frustrating and definitely makes me feel like time not well spent. When it comes to t-shirts and jeans this is a great iron. It's not strong enough to iron two sides at once, but it does a good job and is pretty quick to use all considering. This isn't professional grade, but it's good for the home and every day use. I would not spend too much money on it though. I acquired mine when a friend moved out of the country. It was a definite upgrade to what I was using, but I would not spend a ton of money on this because I think you can get similar quality for less money.
