Every morning as I go through my routine eventually it comes time to get dressed and this almost always requires me to iron at least one item. For years I simply used a cheap iron that I had purchased and seemed to do the job just fine. My only complaints were that it took a while to heat, didn’t hold much water, and that it had only basic shutoff features, in case it was left on. Eventually this iron stopped working and it was time to purchase a new one.
Having visited friends recently and borrowed their quality iron I had been inspired to trade up as theirs was head and shoulders above mine. It may seem to many (it did to me) that an iron is an iron and they all produce the same result. This, as I would learn, is not the case.
High-end irons are no more equals to low-end irons as Lamborghinis are equals to Toyotas. Yes both may perform the same basic function i.e. get you from one place to another or flatten out wrinkles, but the experience and the time it takes to perform these basic function is very different.
My new iron, which admittedly cost about three times as much as my old one, is packed with touches that make it perform better contributing to the superior experience. These include:
- High number of steam holes
- Large capacity water tank
- Quick heat time
- Vertical Steam
- Tapered point
With my new iron in hand no wrinkle or crease stands a chance in slowing my morning routine. The quality iron not only produces results faster but it also produces a better result. For me there was no downside to this investment.
