Most products specifically state that the item is for home use, not professional use. Yet, the Singer press is strictly a hot toy, not for average home use, as the auto-shutoff circuitry will fail in about a year of less than moderate use. This renders the entire unit worthless and very costly to repair. Expect a repair bill of $100+, if you can take it in to a local Singer shop for repair. The same part failed in my first Singer press, albeit some years apart. After the second failure, I got a new Singer press, but the same auto-shutoff part failed again after a year. Otherwise, if you have to ship it to a repair facility, then better hope that you kept the box, as it may cost you another $25-35 one way by UPS, plus the return ship fee. No box? No problem... just pay a shipping shop another $30 for a custom box. Keep looking for another item and do your homework to find a durable unit. Many people are elated with their new presses (of any brand) after getting the hang of using a press instead of an old iron. Look for a review from a user who has had theirs for a year.
