I posted this at the end of an old thread and then figured no one would notice it-so I thought I would post again. Since there seems to be a discussion about irons that crops up periodically, I thought I would share this new one with everyone. I am thinking about getting one.
This is a brand new iron that will be on the market in a few weeks. I saw it advertised in the December American Patchwork and Quilting magazine. It comes with a cute carrier that doubles as a pressing mat when you open it. It would be great for retreats and classes. It also has a feature that allows you to choose whether you want automatic shut off or have the iron stay on until you shut it off.
That's an interesting iron. I have read great reviews about the Reliable iron. It has a separate steam chamber built in the iron, so no drips ever. The new version has an auto off selector. Use the auto off or not.
Cool iron. It sounds like it would be great.
And, I wonder how the steam vents are configured on the bottom of the iron. I used an iron in a quilting class that was so frustrating because the holes for the steam to come out kept catching on seam intersections, and I was doing more damage than good by pressing with it.
I will be checking this one out!!! Thanks for posting this, I really like the option of auto shut off or not, too :D :D :D
Is this a regular sized iron? I use a travel iron for all my seams, which I really prefer. I'd love the option to turn off or on.
I like this iron!! :D I am in the
market for a new iron & will
definately consider this one.
Thank you for the link!!
:D :D :D :D
Speaking of irons, I have one with the Teflon soleplate and I just HATE it.
I got it as a gift, so I shouldn't complain but I will NEVER have another one, gift or not.
And yes, the steam holes on the bottom always catch corners, seams, everything. GGGGGUUUUURRRRR.
Thanxs, I feel much better now.
