Black and Decker 1100-Watt Classic Iron

Rating: 3 out of 5
  • Currently 3.0/5.0

I purchased this iron two years ago, at Lowe's, and paid $25.00 for it. It was the least expensive iron than others as high as Rowenta's, at $90 for a professional iron, with direct competition from the Shark Lightweight Professional Electric Iron, at $30.00. The iron is made well, typical of Black and Decker, and has a solid feel when handled. The iron was categorized as an 1100-Watt "Classic Iron" and it is. Body is chrome and handle is black. It features a 3-Way Auto Shut-Off, Anti Drip Feature, Aluminum Sole Plate, and a Variable Steam control. There is nothing difficult about operating the iron; filling the tank is easy, under a slow-running tap, then plugging it in a standard receptacle and adjusting the temperature to fit the fabric are nicely uncomplicated. It heats quickly and the steam feature is adequate for most garments and fabrics with various, accurate settings. After two years, the iron still performs well. Most Black and Decker products are reliable, and this one is no exception. It gets a fair amount of use, as I sew and also wear many linen garments. The iron is safe to use and if I burn myself, I can't blame the iron. As of today, the iron is performing well and I will continue to use it. When I purchased it, I thought the weight would contribute to its effectiveness, and it does, but the 3.61 pounds seem to be a factor, with prolonged use, and I find my hand and arm reacting negatively. For the price and performance, it does everything I expected it to do. I would recommend this iron for every-day use because it has all the standard features that most users would need, and the price is reasonable.
