I found this curling iron difficult to use. It may be that I was used to my previous curling iron, which had a much smaller handle. My hands are not small, so that was not the problem. The handle has a large bulb near the actual heating surface. This is where the On/Off buttons are located along with the heat setting dial. I found myself holding it around this area for better control. The heat setting dial moved rather freely and kept changing as I used it. It would often be on 30, the hottest setting which is much too hot and will damage your hair. I finally put tape over the dial to hold the proper setting. Sometimes I would accidentally push the off button before I was done styling my hair. The metal loop stand is very large and gets in the way and the iron shuts off automatically, which has been quite inconvenient. The total length of this curling iron, not including the cord, is about 13 1/4" which is 3" longer than my previous one. Most of the difference in length is handle. I really wanted to like this item. I tried. Just when I was getting used to it, it quit working. First it had a loose connection and giggling the cord worked, but now it is dead. I only had it a few months. I bought it because it was the only choice for a 1/2" curling iron at the time. Today I found a Conair which I think I will like much better. I had to buy it in a set with 2 other sizes which I probably will never use ( 3/4" & 1"). The set was just two dollars more than the Cover Girl one. I feel kind of bad for all of the above complaining, but am just being honest. I see there are several very positive reviews for this product.
