Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mallorie Wonderful to use!
I am Loving this iron! It's actually pretty difficult to find an iron without steam. It heats and cools quickly. The weight is perfect to get those crisp seams the first swipe and the lack of steam holes means it easier to push your seam to one side without catching it and having it flip on you! I've had it for a little over a week now and it has been very busy indeed! Three quilt projects later it's still out of package new and the soleplate was easy to clean after lots of starch use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by QuiltedL A great craft/sewing iron
A fellow quilter brought this iron to a sewing retreat. It has a solid ironing bottom surface - meaning no holes/steam vents in the sole plate. It heats up quickly and stays hot until you turn it off. No auto-off timers here!
My half-square triangles didn't stretch out of shape and I experienced no bubbles when fusing applique shapes. I bought my own as soon as I returned home. While it doesn't replace my regular steam iron, it fills a specific need quite nicely.

I purchased this to replace a very old dry iron I'd bought at a tag sale and used almost daily for over 5 years. It's nearly perfect. It heats up quickly and I love that it doesn't shut itself off. The soleplate isn't polished like my old iron, but a quick cleaning with professional hot iron cleaner helped. I'd also like it to be just a bit heavier, but overall I'm very happy and hope it last at least as long as the one it replaced.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BAnderson As Expected
After zillions of reviews read, I finally decided to get the simplest iron -- no drips, etc. Well, it works perfectly fine, but it's like driving a Hyndai (gets the job done.) Then I caved and got a Rowenta (the expensive model that is made in Germany) and well... it's like driving a BMW or Benz. I dont use this dry iron any more, but I still like it and may use it some time in the future.

I remember using an iron like this when I was younger. Used one again recently and really liked how it pressed my quilt blocks I bought from Home Depot because shipping price was more than half the shipping of other places. It was a day or to late because of a snow storm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FITZ Works well on many fronts
Works great, good look, old school apperance. Bought it for my 15 year old to wax his snowboard and skis. I used it 3 times on my clothes prior and it worked well on those as well. Now that he has used several times with wax, it is now ski wax iron!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by WCWilliams Only recommended with caveat
If the manufacturer can repair or replace my iron.
I just bought this August 2009 and tonight it died. The temperature shot way up while I was using it (melting some of the fabric in the process) then it crashed to barely warm - and there is has remained.
I loved this thing while it worked. The smooth sole plate with out steam holes is wonderful; no steam hole indentations in your fabrics. However, this is not a professional iron, so don't expect a mirror finish on the sole plate. The little imperfections mine had did not harm any of my fabrics, including my fine silks.
Yes, I am a craftswoman so between my sewing and my normal laundry ironing, it saw nearly daily use. But I am very disappointed that it did not even make it a full year.
(According to the manufacture's website these irons have an 18 month warranty so I have sent an email to them to see if they can replace or repair the unit.)

I'm very happy to find this iron and it is just what I was looking for. It came quickly and the whole process was very satisfactory.
