    The little Black and Deckers are perfect for pressing.

    I just sold one on this board. Mine got very hot and worked well on seams in hard to reach areas. I just ended up using my small travel iron as much or more so sold my Clover to buy more fabric and stuff!! I use a small table top ironing board rather than a regular ironing board.

    I have one, but never even took it out of the package. I ended up buying a small iron at the LQS they all used and I love it.

    I saw where you can use them for starching needle turn appliqué?

    I did the exact same thing, works great!

    Well everybody its been out of its packet and now used after burning my fingers a couple of time i now have got use to it it is quiet good for pressing the middle seams open on small triangles and squares but even tho i have bought this i have now seen a small travel iron and mini ironing board for sale so going to purchase them.
    Clover mini iron works for me but the down side is that its not very good for getting hard creases out ,,ermmm i should have bought the travel iron first lol well you live and learn ,,,,

    I use my clover iron for foundation paper piecing and for applique (turning the seam allowance under). I like it, but you have to be careful with it. Don't let your cat jump on your sewing table and accidentally pull the iron into your lap. Good thing I was wearing pants. LOL
