I'm a quilter & bought this for a mini ironing station near my sewing machine. NEVER expecting it to be the best iron ever! It's the perfect size for my hand & TV tray sized ironing area. It gets hot quickly, & the shot of steam is wonderful! The water reservoir is sufficiently sized so that it doesn't need constant refilling. The only thing I could have asked for was, in the instructions, to have the heat settings related to different fabrics. On the iron itself, it's a dot system - 1 dot, 2 dots, three dots, max. Which setting for which fabric?
