I found an iron that eliminates my pet peeve with irons. It's so aggravating to turn on my iron, wait for it to heat, iron a seam, sew a few more seams, return to the iron to find that it has turned off automatically, and then have to wait for the iron to heat up again. Last week I ordered a Hamilton Beach Smart Lift iron through amazon.com. The automatic-off feature can be turned off so that the iron stays heated while I'm sewing. The price is $26.95, and Amazon doesn't charge sales tax. I'm sure it's sold by other stores, too. On my computer screen the color appeared to be dark blue with a light blue water-well, but it's actually black with a lavender color water well. The iron is heavier than I like an iron to be, but I can handle it okay. (I have Parkinson's and my hands and arms are weaker than they were in my better days.) I LOVE my new iron!
