General Electric IronModel # 169134 With Retractable Cord
This iron is one of the worst that I have ever owned. The water well that you need to fill for the steam setting is oddly shaped and poorly designed. It is hard to fill and water spills everywhere. The temperature setting dial seems easy to understand but the iron doesn't match the correct temperature to meet each setting. I've scorched collars and sleeves of some of my fairly expensive dress shirts.
It also tends to leak water from around the metal face especially while I'm not using the steam setting.
The manual and box claim that this is an auto shut off model, but mine doesn't seem to turn off. I tested it out, because I have a tendency to not shut things off before leaving the house. I left it on for an hour while I watched TV and it stayed hot the entire time.
I am also noticing things stick to the face when set to the correct temperature setting. I was told it would be non stick. It also flakes and makes cracking sounds when I'm using it for more than 5 minutes.
The only good thing that I have found is the retractable cord. It is long enough to reach fairly long distances and retracts easily. That is a great feature as it makes it easy to store when not in use.
I am very unhappy with this iron because it is cheaply made and doesn't do the job it is supposed to.
It may be my own fault as I chose this iron because of it's low price. I guess you get what you pay for. I'm waiting for this one to break to give me an excuse to buy a newer and better model. How can the maker of this product sleep at night?
