Black and Decker Steam Advantage Iron (F1000)

by Elaina

It's a great iron!

I wanted something a little more heavy duty then what I had, but didn't want to spend the money on a professional model. I got the Steam Advantage and I have never been happier.

I sew so a good iron is a must. This has a bit of weight to it, which makes pressing easier and the non-stick sole glides smoothly over the fabric. It also has great steam capabilities, plenty of it, and when I need more, a button to give a burst of steam to the garment, and it's not a wimpy bit either. It's an honest to goodness bit that can also steam a garment on a hanger. This also comes with a mister button for when you need to spay a garment as well.

Because I rely so heavily on the steam, this also has a self-cleaning feature, which is awesome since I am not the best at using distilled water in the reservoir. It cleans as promised, and my iron always stays top shape with little hassle.

One of the great things about this is the auto off. It will shut off when sitting, and will also come back on if you move it. Because I let it sit often, it also warms up very fast, so there's no waiting to iron.

One of the best things for me has been the fact that I do drop my iron as well as give it quite a work out. In the times I've dropped it, there has been no dents, dings or leaks from this iron. I plug it in and it goes, like I expect it to from B&D.

Over all this is a fantastic iron. It works like many expensive professional home models, is under $30 and a great price for a great product. I've had, and used mine, nearly daily for a year and a half and I don't need a new one.
