    Table Info

    Our User Rating – This is our own opinion based on our research of the product through our own and/or other user’s testing and testimonials. Clicking through to one of the featured products directs you to Amazon’s product page, where you’ll find reviews depicted by real customers. We highly recommend that you read what they say about the model you’re interested in.

    Best Value / Top Rated / Top Specs – Products that we consider to excel in a certain area such as value for money, reputation or technology have been given one of our aforementioned labels of recognition.

    Cord – This cord length of a steam iron is usually no less than 7 feet, and some are able to rotate at a 360 degree angle for easy ironing, and even retract into the iron itself.

    Auto Off – A steam iron with this feature will automatically turn itself off when the iron is idol for a certain period of time depending on whether its stood upright or flat on the soleplate.

    Soleplate – One of the most important parts of an iron is the soleplate, which determines how smooth and easy it is to iron clothes, and the longevity of the iron itself. Stainless steel is commonly used as it’s rust resistant, while a nonstick soleplate glides better over clothing.

    Steam Holes – This is the amount of holes that are in the soleplate to help distribute steam and heat evenly. The more holes there are and the careful placement of these holes makes ironing more efficient.

    Water Tank – The amount of water that can be held in either the base or handle affects how long you can iron before having to refill again.

    Price – If you want to know the price of any of the models, just click on the Buy Now button and you’ll be redirected to the product page on Amazon.com. The reason we don’t put prices is because they constantly change and there are so many sellers offering different prices.
