Panasonic Cordless Steam/Dry Iron

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

I hate electrical cables, and when my old Rowenta iron died, I decided to treat myself with a cordless iron. Surprisingly, there are not too many on the market, especially if you do not want to spend a fortune on something that you use only under duress. I ended up buying Panasonic Steam/Dry iron, mostly because of good reviews it has. The reasonable price of $58.99 was another incentive.
The way my new Panasonic iron works without a cord is with the help of a stand, which acts as a charger. The charger itself has a retractable cord and shows iron temperature.
I love the stainless-steel plate because it glides much more smoothly than my old Rowenta with its non-stick plate.
Another neat new feature is the removable water tank. It is easy to take off, refill and put back in place without spilling a drop of water. Far cry from my old iron, which was always dripping.
My Panasonic iron also looks great, with ergonomic shape and comfortable hand grip. The water tank is transparent, so you can see how much water is left. The part that is not so good is that the tank is not very large, so you have to keep refilling it when you are doing a large batch of ironing.
The weight of 7 pounds makes this iron very comfortable- not too heavy to hurt your wrist, and not to light to force you to do all the pressing.
I knew that I would have to pay the price for getting rid of the cord, and the price is that the iron has to be recharged quite often - it cools off and it has to be placed on the charger every ten minutes. This is good enough for small loads, but it can be annoying when you are in the middle of a large job.
The iron comes with a transparent heat-resistant lid, so you can store it even before it cools off. I find this feature very useful, especially if you have kids around.
