    Finally...an iron that works!

    Hi, I have been searching for a good iron for years...bought 4 in the past 3 years. Have spent $20-$70. Tried Panasonic, Rowenta, Black and Decker and now this Shark. This Shark is hands down the best performer out of the box! The steam is tremendous. I have only had it a week but expect the love of this unit to continue. It recieved high marks from Consumer Reports and has the Good Housekeeping seal of approval. It also made the best 5 professional iron list for those on a budget. It does require more refills than my others...but thats because it actually makes steam! So far it is not leaking and the front spray is the finest, most consistent of any i have used. one of the tech reviews stated this was the best to stay at a steady temp...even compared to the most expensive irons. This is critical if you work on delicate fabrics. I just don't see how you can go wrong with this iron. It should not have been this hard to find an iron that works. I am glad my search is over and am enjoying ironing again...if that is possible! Hope this helps those who have been as frustrated as I have to find a good iron.

    ...or so. The steam was great, it heated up fast and I like that it turns itself off after awhile if not used. It just died on me after approximately 5 years. The ex wife wanted to toss it out after about a year because it wouldn't let steam out and it dribbled. I kept it, and cleaned it out with some vinegar (we have very hard water) and it worked great! Made a habit out of using distilled water so that the calcium wouldn't build up. If I can't fix this one, I'd buy the same one again.

    please note I do not work for Shark, but need a very strong steam iron for my work. This unit is perfect for travel or at home. My likes are it produces a lot of steam, better than handheld units, ( not be used around children!). I have tried two or three competitors and had to return them all. The price of this unit is too good to be true and I bought another two for backups when and if this one dies. Sadly a good product may not be around as a lot of companies fell pressure to introduce *new and improved" models. This unit is perfect now, and I bought the extras in case Shark falls to model changes. Its a small size, and it can get into small spaces and is not heavy to hold. I use it for over 3 hours a day and it holds up great. Only wish is I did not have to refill it as much, but thats the price you pay for it pushing out great steam at a light weight unit. My unit does not leak and heats up within a minute to full steam. I am sometimes brutal in a review if product is bad, but I love this unit and hope Stark never changes it.

    When I bought the shark anti-drip Iron I thought it was the best Iron on the market. However, as I keep using it the worst it got, it's started to drip slowly and as time goes by it got worse. may I remind you I bought it because it suppose to be a "anti-drip Iron" now it is running like a stream.... Unhappy customer

    I was willing to spend the money on this iron if it was going to perform. I'm very disappointed. There are some good things about it, but overall, I'm not pleased and am going to return it. It's got a nice feel to it, the iron glides nicely across the fabric, and it heats up like a champ. Ironing was so quick. I didn't know that was possible. This was my first truly good iron that way and I'm now sold on buying a quality iron. Just not this one. The cons: - spits and drips water, despite being touted as a non-spitter, to the point of frustration (and I had it on the hottest setting) - bad design for water opening cover; it flips up rather than dropping down which forces you to have to hold the iron at an awkward angle while pouring the water in; if you try to pour it in while sitting on it's heel, it goes all over the place; also because of this, you can't leave the cover open to let the iron dry inside when done (it falls back down over the opening) - water opening is so small it takes ages to pour the water in, and to pour extra back out at end

    ... even after not following the instructions verbatim.. I have owned this iron for a couple of years, have used it almost every single day and have never had any issues. No leaks, no variable temps, no nothing. It has worked GREAT! It recently started leaking a little and I did a self-cleaning, which I had never done (although the instructions say to self-clean every two weeks or so). It now works again as good as new. Yes, I understand that every now and then faulty electronics straight from the manufacturer are a given, and I'm sure that some of the reviewers may have received some faulty irons. However, I would bet that many people may not have followed the instructions or just didn't know how to properly use the iron. I have had a great experience thus far, even after 2 years. I used to be a die-hard Sunbeam iron fan; however, after a few months to a year, they always leaked sum'n awful. I don't believe in paying $100+ for an iron, and I'm not a cheapskate either. This iron has really proven to be a good deal and great value. It has been great and lived up to everything that it advertised. I would recommend it to anyone.

    I put off buying an iron, because of the poor choices of irons in the past. This iron surpasses all expectations! I have to iron my clothes every week, and this iron makes that easy. It heats up quickly, and works like dry cleaner press! Wow. Have you every ironed your clothes and you couldn't tell that you have iron them? Not with this iron. You can iron the traditional way or use it like a steamer. The water will not leak either way.If you go slow because of a heavier cloth, the iron automatically steams the cloth for you if you are in the steam setting! On top of all this, it is very affordable. I love ironing for the first time ever!

    I bought one Shark iron from Wal-Mart and after approximately 6 months the cord failed due to a short. I gave Shark another chance and now the second iron has a bad cord and will not stay hot. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!

    I have used a steam iron for 30 years and know to let the iron heat completely before using the steam setting. While I loved how the stainless ironing surface glided over fabric, I hated the random sputtering of dirty water staining my clothes and ironing board cover. Very frustrating! Also, the swiveling cord is not designed well and doesn't allow the iron to sit securely on the ironing board, without adjusting the cord every time you set it down. Luckily, Walmart has a great return policy and I returned it and bought a less expensive GE that works much better!

    • A. it stays on and can be adjusted more or less steam... the problem i had is you have to keep the iron at least half full of water to get the most benefit from the steam for some reason.. but that's not a big deal.. but the steam is automatic when it's level with the ironing board.

    • A. If you set steam on the dial light to heavy, you will get steam constantly as you iron. It also has the ability by pushing a button to hit the fabric with an extra shot of steam on especially stubborn wrinkles, but you are warned that overuse of the steam burst may cause water spitting or weak steam performance.

    • A. It shuts down automatically if idle for 7-9 minutes in any position, so you don't have to worry about leaving it on. I don't see an on-off switch. I disconnect from the electrical socket to shut down. The red light will flash when auto-off activates. Moving it will turn the iron on again if plugged in, but if left off for some time, you may have to reset temp and wait for it to heat again.
