I purchased this iron expecting a lot more. Maybe I was unrealistic but for this price you want something really good. The iron is nice looking and irons well but I find the heat not enough to take the most stubborn creases off cotton garments easily enough. I need to go over a few times until the result is satisfactory. Also it started staining the cloths after only 3 weeks use and the lime scale warning light was not even on to indicate time to drain the iron. I just drained it as instructed and it has been fine but I had to wash a few shirts all over. I will empty the iron more often not waiting for the light to go on! Otherwise it's a quite good iron especially for using it on different types of fabrics without having to adjust the temperature.
