4 out of 5 stars

For a long time I've been using the cheaper irons because I just couldn't justify any large expense on a basic appliance figuring that since I knew I was buying an el cheapo I was prepared to spend another $10 or $15 in a few months.

When I realized I was leaving Wal-Mart with my sixth iron in the course of 8 months, it dawned on me that with the almost $100 I'd spent in 8 months then perhaps I should look into getting a better quality iron. This time, though, I went shopping armed with some ideas of what works best for me and found exactly what I needed, too.

The Panasonic NI-L70SR went home with me that day and has been doing great for the last 9 months or so! My favorite part has absolutely got to be the fact that it's cordless! My cats don't play with the cord while I'm ironing jerking it from my hand or the board, which, by the way, the hurts tremendously when the hot iron hits your bare toes!

It's also great because I don't have to try to wrap the cord or tie it back when it's not in use. Even the cord to the power base is retractable to keep it nice and neat, too. I love the base and cover for it and it comes with a traveling bag so I can take it with me and not have to use the lousy hotel irons or fight for the one at my mother-in-law's when we visit and it's not very heavy either.

It also heats up quickly, much quicker than the old stand-bys, in under five minutes and keeps a steady heat pretty well, too. The biggest drawback is that the heat doesn't last very long and the water reservoir isn't terribly large which means I have to refill several times if I'm doing a large amount of ironing and frequently have to place it back on the base to heat up.

Fortunately, it doesn't take but about 30 seconds to get hot again on the base which I use to adjust whatever I'm ironing. It would be nice to have some kind of indicators to designate when the iron is cooling down and when the reservoir needs to be filled.

Overall, though, I've been quite pleased with my iron and don't get too upset about getting out all the stuff because it's just not so much of a hassle!
