Steam Irons Performance
Steam Irons Heat and Pressing.According to experts' steam iron reviews, cheap irons often perform as well as their expensive counterparts. Indeed, we read steam irons reviews by users that tell of ditching pricey irons for the budget variety because cheaper was better.
For a brand often associated with non-stick cookware, it's perhaps no surprise that consumers and experts wax lyrical about the T-Fal Ultraglide Easycord FV4379. It almost literally glides across the fabric, says About.com; dozens of users report likewise, noting it flattens seams and smoothes out jeans in a flash. Steam iron reviews on J&R say the T-Fal Ultraglide heats up quickly and produces lots of consistent steam, which makes ironing almost effortless. The Black & Decker F67E Classic also earns mostly rave reviews, often from consumers who remember it fondly as the iron of their youth. (One user notes on Amazon that it was the answer to girls' prayers for straight hair.) Other iron reviews on Walmart admire its heavy-duty, no-extras simplicity, and most importantly, its heat. Consumers also attribute the excellent pressing performance to its all-metal construction and three-plus-pound weight, features that set it apart from what one user calls "flimsy" plastic models.
Plenty of consumers also comment favorably on the 3.4-pound Panasonic NI-S200TR. In steam iron reviews on Amazon, many users say this inexpensive model heats up quickly and sends out plenty of steam, although we read some griping about inadequate heat and needing to refill the tank often, as well as some sputtering and dripping. (Note that such reports surface to some extent in reviews about most cheap irons.) The T-Fal Prima FV3056 is a good basic iron for the money, conclude steam iron reviews. One post on Macy's says it produces plenty of steam and heat and slides easily over jeans. Comparing the Prima FV3056 to the T-Fal Ultraglide FV4379 in a review on Amazon, one consumer says the former gets hotter but she prefers the ceramic soleplate of the Ultraglide to the non-stick soleplate on the Prima.
The one cordless iron we researched, the Smartek ST2000, is done in by the speed with which it loses heat, say steam irons reviews on Overstock, while other users gripe on Walmart about inadequate heat. Opinion is divided in steam iron reviews on Target about how hot the Shark Professional Rapido G1468 gets, but the big irritants seem to be water leakage, white crystals that spray out of the tank, and staining of clothing.
