I was wondering if anybody has bought and used this cordless version of the hand held mini iron. I have been debating about whether this one or one of Clover's Mini Irons.

I think the newer version of the Clover Mini Irons have safety features that protects your fingers from burning as well as different temperature settings. I was at an applique quilt class and several people brought their Clovers in. They all looked different from each others because of when they bought them. I know you can now buy different kinds of tip rods that can be inserted into the handle of one of their interchangable Clover Mini Iron models. In case you want to do some wood burning or jewelry work and other crafty stuff that I don't know.

I liked using it for applique but I found the cord to be constantly in my way. Several times the iron fell over because of the cord. The Petite Press Mini Iron is cordless. So I wondered if anybody has bought it and liked it better than the Clover.

I had asked about this a while back. There were a few positive responses. I haven't bought it yet, but plan to before my next paper piecing project.

I had a Clover mini iron with the additional safety features. Didn't matter. I still burned the heck out of my index finger first time out. Never plugged it in again.

I have a Clover iron. I mistakenly laid my cathedral window quilt on it and burned it. Those little screws that hold the iron on the handle get extremely hot! Now I have a little round burn spot that I'm going to have to cover with a label!

Wow! I loved your board. You did get some really good responses. I just wanted to ask whether the Petite Press Mini Iron is cordless or did I get that feature mixed up with another?
