I have a habit of burning through irons. I lose them, leave them behind, have a kid chew threw the power cord, the usual. I bought the Sunbeam Jarden 4267 Iron as an inexpensive replacement for another Sunbeam model that I hated. Why stick with Sunbeam you ask? I had to give it a try after reading all the positive reviews. I have to say that I agree with them completely! This is a no frills iron, but it has adjustable heat settings, and they appear to correlate with a change in temperature. It heats up relatively quickly, and evenly, I don't find myself searching out the hot spot on the plate. The steam feature works nicely, and does not leak which is a problem I have had with other Sunbeam irons. Overall I give this iron a 9, it is an inexpensive option, that gives a great press. The only reason it did not get a ten is because some of the bells and whistles that it doesn't offer.
