Kenmore 1200W is a most have

I have to iron my cloths everyday for work (dress shirt & pants) .. In the past i've gotten cheap irons that are less than $25.. brands like black and decker.. But they would rust out and even mess up my cloths with stains. This IRON is well built in the old fashion style of classic irons. I highly recommend this iron if you looking of something that will last. I would give it a perfect store because I wish it was made in the USA. Thats the only bad thing.

Worst Iron Ever: Tips Over (Ouch!), Auto-shutoff Doesn't, Loud, Inefficient

This iron is top heavy (yes, it looks like it would be and IT IS). As I write this, I have a three inch arc burned into my right forearm, still bright red after a week, where it tipped over the first time I used it. (I am returning it.) In addition, the so-called auto-shutoff is NOT auto-shutoff, as it does NOT turn off the iron, and merely turns off the heat, and leaves the iron on standby, with the light blinking endlessly (literally). The User Manual says the iron will turn on again when it is moved around, and that sometimes works as described, and sometimes doesn't (in which case, one must unplug it and start over to make it turn the heat on again). When the dial is turned to "Off" the little light still remains on, and one must unplug it to make the light turn off. Further, while in use it makes strange noises, like metal pans being clanged together, as the parts change temperature. It's so loud, it's startling. This iron is like something that was created to show what NOT to do when designing an iron. Bottom line, it's a loud, dangerous iron that tips over easily and burns the user badly, and then wastes energy by blinking endlessly when left on, or by keeping its light on when turned to the "Off" setting, until the user physically unplugs it. The fact that this iron got off the drawing board is a sad situation. It should never have made it to the prototype phase, with this absurd design and its nonfunctional features. Customers want quiet, safe irons, that do not tip over, with auto shut-off that actually turns the iron off, completely, with no endless blinking, and a dial that turns the iron off when moved to the "Off" setting. This iron seems likely to be recalled for safety issues, if not for energy inefficiency.

I love this iron...

I have had this iron for 3 years now and it still works great. I always fill it with water to add weight and use steam option to iron quickly because you can only imagine how many clothes needed to be ironed in a family of 6. It never tilted over on flat surfaces. For people who say their iron drips try this: fill the iron with water up to max line not more than that and make sure it's UNPLUGGED, I had the same issue and this helped me. I would recommend this and for the price it can't be beaten.

Absolute favorite iron!Does not tip or drip for me.Increases my productivy!

Owned happily since Dec 2012. Heats up quickly. Love the click noise it makes when hot so that I know when to begin ironing and do not unnecessarily waste electricity by waiting past the time it is hot, or iron before it's ready which would cause drips (as with all irons I've used that drip when cold). So far it has not tipped once in 10 months. Maybe the other reviewer does not keep it filled with water, which might add to the weight? I wanted this iron specifically for the Kenmore name, the design that includes little stabilizer bar, and the quick rotary dial to choose the heat level. I plug it in while in the ON mode with heat at highest, which might not be recommended, but in the morning I don't want to pause to push buttons just to set the heat. Then I do other things until I hear the *click* that lets me know it is hot enough to iron. I frequently use the steam in the upright position to prevent marks on black fabric, and have to dip it into a regular ironing position occasionally to prevent it from going into auto shutoff. I am gone long before the indicator strip turns color, and don't put it away until I return home, and cannot comment on the exterior heat indicator strip. My Sunbeam lasted for years but tipped incessantly, sometimes dropping off the ironing board, which eventually caused it to leak beyond usability after many mornings of frustration. Every Rowenta I have owned, including those $100 - $200, has stopped steaming after tipping then dropping off the ironing board. Since I use steam so much to prevent marks on fabric, but also use ironing for jeans and linens, I prefer an iron that steams vertically to a steamer + iron. I like this blue color much more than orange, too.

Easy to Use

I'm a 50+ single man learning to iron. Very easy to use. Excellent quality.

Good Iron for Reasonable Price

I am very pleased over all with this iron. It is heavy enough to be effective but not uncomfortable. The level of steam also is very good. The only thing that kept it from 5 stars was the fact the back end of the soleplate tends to grab ends of fabric like the bottom of a pant leg. I have to remember this and make the necessary adjustment when I am ironing that part.

Quality product at an affordable price.

<p>This is a nice iron.  Constructed well and very easy to use.  One small feature that makes this iron stand out from others is a sole plate temperature indicator.  It's purpose being to let you know when the iron has completely cooled off and is ready to be stored.  Nice touch! </p>
