Sunbeam Model 3056
This is a general all purpose iron which will serve a wide variety of uses with it's variety of features. The first feature that I look for in an iron is an auto off which this iron does have however a negative is that it can be turned on again by just tipping it over which can be a problem if you have children or pets.
Steam output is easily adjustable and may be activated in both a horizontal or vertical position. Steam activation in a vertical position allows you to freshen up that seldom worn clothes item without setting up an ironing board. It also allows you to remove any creases or freshen items that can't easily be taken to an ironing board such as drapes.
The full size water tank is easily filled by using the spout mounted on the front of the iron. This iron comes in a pleasing lavender and chrome adding a little fun to this home appliance.
Temperature and steam controls are well placed for one hand operation however the markings are very faint and are very difficult to see. Another very important feature on this iron is that it can be turned off, some irons on the market can only be completely turned off by unplugging them.
