Rated 5 out of 5Â by cindip Great for piecing quilt blocks
This iron was recommended by a quilting instructor. There are no steam holes to make the fabric "bumpy" and as a side bonus, if you're using unwashed fabrics they won't shrink from this dry iron. Basic, non-electronic iron; very nice and it's a great price to boot!

When I was a young girl, I used to help my mother iron. She used to sprinkle her clothes, let them sit in a closed bag for an hour or so, and then iron them with a dry iron. They always came out perfectly. I started with pillow cases and then graduated to more difficult clothes. They came out crisp,with clean seam lines and a perfect, no-wrinkle body. It just brought me home again. Ironing was the one household chore I enjoyed because you could see the result of your effort. I love the iron. Thanks for bringing it back.

I love it! I do a lot of piecing of quilt tops and iron constantly. The flat surface is great, I prefer to sprinkle water rather than spray or steam (seem to burn myself!) when ironing and this has a great high temp for cottons and I control the moisture. Very happy, and it's a bit smaller and lighter as there is no water chamber.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Happily Quilting Great for quilters
I bought an iron that I thought was great, it was heavy and got real hot. Then I started have trouble with the steam holes wrinkling up the corners of my tiny quilt squares. Then I found this iron, it is still heavy and gets real hot, but there are not steam holes to catch the edges of my quilt blocks! YAY!

I sent this iron back because it didn't get as hot as my old steam iron used to (worked well for twenty years until it suddenly gave up the ghost).

I was tired of steam irons that spit so I quit using steam in my iron...I went back to the old fashioned method of misting my fabric with a spray bottle. Then, my previous iron bit the dust and I knew it was time to make my move. Goodbye steam iron, Hello Dry Iron. I love my dry iron. It is hot and really does a great job. I would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by sewcrazy Great new iron
I quilt and sew nearly every day. I need an iron that gets hot and stays hot. I don't want steam or dimples from a steam iron. This one fits the bill. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Capernius MY IRONING IS SO MUCH EASIER
I love this iron!!
it does not stick, it does not leave behind any marks or indents.
When I do have to clean it, which is rare, I run it across some wax paper, which removes 100% of the dirtiness.
Can't get much easier than that!
as for actual ironing, you do not have to "push" the iron across the clothes, for it glides most effortlessly across most materials.
Ironing around buttons is a breeze with this dry iron, as is ironing around zippers.
Changing/setting the temperature for the kind of material you will be ironing is as easy as walking through the park....the dial turns easy & stays put where you set it at.
Did I say I love this iron??
I encourage everyone to get one or two...
if you have a vacation cabin, why not get a second one & store it there?? That way you never have to worry about packing the dry iron. : )
