I am a CHI loyalist and would not consider buying any other falt iron for my hair, but the CHI Air that I purchased from Overstock is not a CHI quality flat iron. This product is made of very cheap plastic that you can barely hold on to b/c the plastic gets so hot you burn your fingers. Strangely, the plastic is the only hot part of this iron!! The plates, which the site says heat to 456 degrees, get nowhere near hot enough to do a decent straightening job! I am very disappointed in this product and I am going to try to return it. I ordered the silver and the image on the website makes it look like more of a white shimmer, when in fact it is very metalic silver plastic. I suppose f you are looking for a light-weight travel iron, this would fit the bill, but you can find better for less. I think there are better options, even on the Overstock site, than the CHI Air and I would never recommend this product to anyone.
