I read many reviews before purchasing, and like most products, this iron had mixed reviews. I like the weight, it glides smoothly, gets hot enough to get wrinkles out (which is it's entire purpose), and overall seems like a good iron. It does spit a bit but that is when it is still heating up; if you wait until it is fully heated up it is fine. I used to buy the top end Rowenta irons, but they do the same thing so I decided this is as good as any. When irons are too cheap they are light and don't have the oomph behind the steam.
Using for craft items and clothing. Works good for small items. Great for plackets. Collars and shoulders are not easy to do and if there is a dart you may get a lot of creasing even with the pad. OK for pants as long as you do not expect too much - 24" x 9" is not that much space. For now I'm still using my regular iron for most of my clothing. Also, seems to run hot; even for cotton I have to use either silk or wool setting. Someone mentioned the little dots and yes, it does do that, but seems to shake right out. I put it on top of my regular ironing board and that seems to work OK. Hope this helps.
I'm happy to have a heavy, sturdy steam iron. It works better than the plastic top lighter models for me. My clothes come out more wrinkle free and I don't have to press down as hard on the fabric. It works great!!
So far so good, I haven't used it but a couple of times, but it works great right now. The only reason I can't give it an execllent rating yet is because I haven't owned it long enough. The iron gets super hot and knocks the wrinkles and creases right out of the garment. The only problem I've had is that the reservoir doesn't hold a lot of water, so if you have the steam on high, you use the water up quickly. Other than that I paid $xx including the shipping for it, that was awesome. Home Depot had the same iron for $89, great deal!
