    My husband just bought me a nice iron, the problem is that it shuts off after 7minutes. Is there such an iron out there that does not have the auto shut off, if so, where might i find one? Thanks.

    This Reliable iron has auto shut-off, but it can be de-activated. Mark Lipinsky recommended this iron on a show I watched online.

    yep my walmart special iron that cost like five bucks doesn't shut off! I think thats why I stick with the cheap-o irons because I hate the auto shut off of the more pricier ones. Plus if the kids or pets knock it off the ironing board and break it I'm not out much cash!

    I threw away my iron with the auto shut-off and bought a cheapy iron without that feature. I love it. Can't tell you right now what kind it is, but very inexpensive.

    buy a teflon iron mat, and leave iron in down position. The one I have stays on then.

    Thank You everyone. Think I'll just take this one back and get cheaper one. Shut off just drives me nuts.

    yes it is a little rediculous that the iron shuts down after 7 min.
    i bought an auto shut off iron with safety in mind. if i leave the room or the house and have forgotten to shut off manually, the iron shuts down automatically. which save my house from burning down. don't mind a bit if i have to wait a minute for the iron to heat back up, at least my forgetful mind is at ease.

    I got this one too. I love it. It's light weight, even adding fresh water it heats up quickly.
