    I am please with the performance and design of this iron. I was impress how I can steam my coats, curtains, and blouses on an hanger. Lots of steam. My church robe looks like I dry cleaned it. The iron gives it that professional touch. Just what I wanted. Delivery was fast. Packaging was neat. The quality is excellent. Thanks HSN.

    It does everything the live video demonstration showed it doing. I followed all the instructions carefully and I got great results. I still have more testing to do, but I'm confident I'll get favorable results as well. I love the Iron.

    This iron is heavy duty with a lot of steam action. I like creases in my pants and this iron does the job. Another good feature is you don't have to guess the temperature setting because it only has one and it gets the job done. Now all the irons I have used in the past seem cheap and took twice as long to get my ironing done.

  • NI-WT980 Ceramic Iron

    I ordered this iron and intended to use it BUT once I saw the "cordless" model this iron wasn't for me so I gave it to daughter.. I can't judged it but she likes it. So we're both are satisfied with our products.
