can this iron be used vertical for hanging drapes
Wanted a sturdy iron without a heavy weigh and this works great. Use distilled water and you will never have to clean it out. Still working great after two years of twice weekly use. Great value for the price....

The automatic shut-off feature causes great difficulty, and sometimes serious problems. I use this iron for steaming during garment construction which means that I steam for a minute or two and then sew for a few minutes. I expect the iron to be hot when I come back to steam and, if it is not, it spits water all over the fabric. Other than that design "feature", it would be a perfect iron. The easy-clean sole plate is a real plus.Read More
This thing is a p.o.s. Totally leaks everywhere and just spit up a bunch of brown water on my brand new polo shirt. Debating on whether to smash this thing into a thousand pieces or just calmly throw it away. I bought to replace a Rowenta that the controls broke on. The five-year old broken Rowenta still works better than this iron brand new. Garbage. Don't buy it.Read More
I have never had a Tefal Iron, now I don't want anything but a Tefal. I have always bough cheap iron's at *******, never again. You get what you paid for. This iron heats up fast and gets wrinkles out with one swipe. With a cheap iron you have to go over an area a few times, not with this Tefal. It acutely cuts down on the time you spend ironing.Read More
I just got this iron in this week, it works very well. Just a tip never use tap water in your iron, use distilled water from the store, it will not get clogged with clorine residue in the steam holes and will last much longer.Read More
Fifty words is too excessive to describe: the iron does a good job of ironing all fabrics; the steam decrease/increase switch is very sensitive but not a problem.Read More
