I have owned the same a Toastmaster 3305 1200-Watt Steam and Dry Iron for a few years. It is one of the few irons that I have bought that has lasted more than one year with regular use. It continues to work so well that I went and purchased a second one in anticipation of the day that I will need another.

With the Toastmaster 3305 iron, you are able to set the dial to a setting that is most suitable to the type of fabric that you will be ironing. The temperature dial is large and easy to adjust. The iron heats up very quickly to the temperature that it is set to so there is no need to wait for many minutes as you have to with another iron. The water tank is conveniently located that you are always able to clearly see if it needs more water, and what level the water is at while you are filling it so that you don't overfill it. The location of the water fill spout is in a good place which makes it very easy to add water. The size of the iron is approximately 6 x 11 x 5 inches, and it weighs approximately 2.7 pounds. When you purchase it new, it includes a one-year warranty. There is a light that goes on when the iron reaches the appropriate temperature. The polished ironing plate makes it smooth and easy to iron all types of fabric. The attached power cord is located in a good spot and it pivots while in use, so it won't get tangled. There is a handy on and off button that you can press for additional steam when needed.

Because the iron heats up so quickly and efficiently, I have found that it is easy to scorch fabric when the temperature setting is not set properly for the type of fabric that you are ironing. There has been a few times when I have accidentally set the temperature incorrectly and had to remove a tiny bit of scorched fabric from the plate. The temperature/fabric dial is placed in a location wher
e it is not always easy to read what setting you have it on.

This iron is not too bad for an iron that ranges in price from $13.00 and up. I would say that it is one of the better models from within the price range. I would recommend it to others.
