You Can Do Better It is difficult to fill the water tank without spilling water on the ironing board. It is also difficult to read the water tank indicator, you have to get the light just right. The temperature dial is under the handle and is difficult to read, it is always in shadow, so you have to memorize it and set it by feel or you can set it before you plug in the iron. If you want to change the setting after you plug it in, you have a problem. There is a lever to adjust the steam level, which is interesting, but I'm not sure why you would ever want low steam. The extra steam button is nice and it works, but you are supposed to wait two seconds before you push it again which is annoying. The water spray is nice, but difficult to aim. The Teflon sole plate is a nice feature. The cord mostly stays out of the way. The iron has a good heavy feel if you prefer the traditional type of iron, however, if I ever have to replace this iron, I'll look elsewhere. October 10, 2011
