Rated 1 out of 5Â by deb4118 UNHAPPY
This is just the worse product....I hate to Iron in the first place, however need to every week put in at least 2 hours of my time. This iron made it even worse, it dragged across the fabric, I don't care what your fabric is or how heat cool the iron was...it just would not work, and made my days using it even more frustrating. Its coming back to you Kohl's, in the morning. I don't care if you wont give me my money back, you need to know how awful this iron is for your customers. Black&Decker, this is the last time I'm ever going to buy your products.
I'm going to look at your Shark product for a new Iron, Kohl's, after I read the reviews.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Dee Dee Great features with lots of heat!
I've had this iron for over a year. Now, I have burned on starch, I guess, that I can't get off with any type of product. On all of my other irons I was able to get it off by dragging the plate on the edge of the ironing board while hot. Now, this plate is no,longer flat. The edges go up & I can't get the burned part on the edge of the ironing board to clean it off because it is not flat. I hate to have to buy another iron because the stuck stuff keeps coming off on my clothes. Not sure what to do at this point.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Sanjosasa Do not buy this product!!
Usually Black and Decker are products are well made and are dependable.
This iron is NOT !!
It seems to drag on the fabrics - may be due to the shape of the sole plate.
Plus the handle is terrible - states is padded.
WRONG!!! only on the bottom and not the top.
Will be returning to my local Kohls.
DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Josh Horrible steam control
I bought this iron a year ago to replace an old Black and Decker that had served me well for a long time. On the old iron you could manually turn the steam on or off. With the steam on it would create a nice even flow of steam.
The new iron is incredibly frustrating to use. I believe the box advertised it as having smart steam. It does not. You could not make the steam on this thing worse if you tried. In fact, the only way I can imagine the steam being this bad is if Black and Decker hired the world's best and foremost steam engineers to calculate the proper amount of steam and then did exactly the opposite. Here's how it goes: I fill up the reservoir and turn on the iron. A minute later it begins to steam just sitting on my ironing board so I begin to press a shirt. Front panel - good steam. Flip to the back and halfway through ironing the steam is just pouring out. So much steam that little drops of water are splattering on the fabric. Slide to a new section and the steam cuts off completely. No steam. I sit and wait for 20-30 seconds and it starts steaming again. Maybe it's a lot of steam, maybe a little, no way to know. Aha! you're thinking that maybe the steam cooled it down too much and now you need to wait for more heat? Nope. If you hit the manual puff-of-steam button you get steam all day. That's right folks, the iron decides how much steam you get and it's a little drunk.
Do you want to iron on a patch or anything else that requires high heat and no steam? You get to open up the fill spout and try to shake all the water out. You see, the heat and steam control is one knob. You can't have one without the other.
I'm going to throw it away and buy something else. I will not give it away because there is no one I hate that much.
