I always thought an iron was an iron, considering that I had been using the same iron for years. Needless to say, the one that I had was cheap and outdated. I no longer think this way since I had the opportunity to try out the T-fal FV4476003 Ultraglide Easycord Iron.
I’ve now realized there is a difference with all irons. Using this iron is a cinch! It heats up quickly, glides so easily, and manages to get all of the wrinkles out. It isn’t necessary to apply a lot of pressure or staying in one place for several seconds. I like that you don’t have to fill it up every half hour, because this iron has a large tank. I couldn’t tell you if there are any better irons out there, but I can honestly say that this is the best iron I’ve used so far. Also, it doesn’t have a hefty price tag attached. It is sold at Amazon.com for $49.75, which I think is relatively reasonable.
