T-Fal Ultraglide Easycord FV4379 Review



The manufacturer of non-stick cookware has applied its know-how to irons, and many say this inexpensive model rivals those costing three times as much. It puts out lots of steam and heat and boasts a ceramic soleplate; a retractable cord and large water tank add to its appeal.

This iron does just what the middle part of its name implies, say T-Fal Ultraglide Easycord FV4379 reviews; that is, it fairly glides over clothes, rendering them smooth and wrinkle-free. Reviews, like those found at Sears, praise its user-friendly operation and effectiveness on fabrics of varying weights and thickness. Frugal consumers compare it favorably to high-end irons, and some report having purchased the T-Fal Ultraglide as a replacement when the pricey brand quit. In reviews on J&R, users rave about the sizable output of steam, which makes quick work of seams and bothersome creases. (Have you tried ironing linen lately?) The Ultraglide also finds favor with people who iron denim because it removes wrinkles in one pass without having to hold the iron on one spot. Users generally appreciate its heft, although a few consider it a bit too heavy, and they note the nine-foot cord doesn't get in the way -- even if you're left-handed. We did, however, come across several reviews on Amazon that gripe about water leaks.

Among the budget irons that we researched, the T-Fal Ultralide Easycord FV4379 out-powers the bunch with a whopping 1700 watts, which ensures hot, sustainable heat. It also features 64 steam holes that help evenly distribute the heat and steam, and a generous nine-ounce water tank that means fewer interruptions for refills. BTW, refilling the T-Fal Ultraglide is easy -- just walk to the tap and hold the iron in a horizontal position, or use a cup; the translucent tank provides a clear line of sight to the water level. The non-stick ceramic soleplate demands little strength to push and an extra-large heel provides stability when the iron is set upright. This model also boasts a self-cleaning function but does not have a mister.

The discount irons universe claims the T-Fal Ultraglide Easycord as a winner. Consumers who take their ironing seriously and those who just want an iron that does its job provide consistently strong T-Fal Ultraglide Easycare reviews.
