    Does anyone have experience with cordless irons? I need to get one asap. My loveable lab keeps getting tangled in the cord and pulling mine off the ironing board.
    I've been looking at a Panasonic NI-l71SR.
    Thanks for your help!

    No I haven't but I have had experience with other cordless tool like my drill and my husbands shop tools. I wonder if it gets hot enough to do the job like a corded one.

    Wow, that is a neat iron, I just read it's description. Does everything my Shark does minus the cord. Which is retractable after charging. I am going to put this one on my wish list for a possible replacement if my Shark iron goes belly up.

    I have one and the only downfall obviously is that it cools down fast . So you are constatantly putting it back on the charger to get it back up to hot . I am at work and cannot remember the brand of mine, but it was suppose to be a better one :? LOL

    I read that Maytag use to have a great cordless iron but now they aren't made like they use to. Have you tried the iron caddy? This is great if the iron is around children or pets. It's here: http://www.clotilde.com/detail.html?...criteria=iron+

    Much cheaper then a new iron.

    Not having any $$$, I came up with a low cost solution to dangling cords using a hook in the ceiling and about two feet of elastic (kind used for sewing pajamas and such). The hook is the type for hanging plants and includes a spring bar across the opening to prevent the elastic from being knocked out of the hook. Works for me.

    What a great idea. I have an Invonage Home cordless iron - It's ok to use to iron open a seam-it's not that good when your'e trying to iron a couple of yards of fabric - it does not stay hot long enough.

    The iron caddy is cute, put your cord still hangs down.....

    Have you looked in the department stores ... or wherever they sell irons and accessories? I ask this because I have a metal extension on my ironing board end that is a hot iron prop and it has an antenna-like contraption clamped to it that holds the iron's cord up in the air ... leaving the cord long enough to iron easily (plus the antenna bends), but keeping it out of my way and out of the way of pets and kids. Mine came already attached to the ironing board, but they might have such a thing for sale, separately, in the stores. It might be worth your while to look before you buy a new iron. I have my iron plugged into a power bar that sits on a shelf about 2 feet off the floor and therefore very near my ironing board, which helps tremendously with my cord length, etc.

    I know oreck has cordless irons, you can find them on ebay for under $50. Don't know how good they are, I have never used a cordless iron.
