A review..........

Occasionally I am contacted by a company to see if I would like to review their product on my blog.  Sometimes it is a product I don't even use, but this time it caught my attention.  My favorite iron of all times was a Hamilton Beach and I had it for over 8 years before it bit the dust.  It still steamed up until the day it died. 
I have never been a fan of soleplates with a coating but this one caught my attention.  It sounded like a more durable and slick coating than most irons offer.








They are really standing behind this one.  Here is a link to the info about this iron on their website.









I am happy to say the little water compartment door stays open instead of flopping down as you are filling it.  Little things like that make me happy.

It is easy to see the water level which is a must for me.  My previous irons had me guessing all the time.

It has an automatic shut off, with a little beeping sound.  If you hold it too long in the down position it will also beep (and eventually shut off).  Of course that is a safety feature in case you left the iron in that position accidentally.

My first thought was "It's so big, it must be heavy" but the bottom part is the retractable cord compartment so it doesn't add any weight.  After using the iron for a month I found that it is heavy enough that I don't have to add any extra pressure to the iron to get out fold marks from my stash fabrics but not so heavy that it is uncomfortable using it.  It glides SO smoothly across the fabric.  The steam?  It has lots of steam and I love a steam iron.  Only a few things need a dry iron.  I recommend this one if you like lots of steam.

I read all of the instructions that came with the iron.  Do you do that?  Or do you just pull it out and use it?  How many of you empty the water when you shut off the iron?  I never did in the past but I am doing it with this one.

Now for the giveaway- Hamilton Beach will send one of these irons to one of my readers.  Warning!! If you are a no reply blogger, you are automatically removed from the list.  That is all of you with Blogger accounts that haven't enabled your email, 90% of Google+ are no reply.  If you don't know, you can add your email in your comment with the word AT instead of @ and the word DOT instead of .  I will pick the winner with the random number generator at 11:30 p.m. CST Saturday night 2/22.

The drawing is closed!!!!

Sure seems to be a good iron. Thx for the giveaway chance. Love your blog EVERY day!

Beth said...

I am happy to hear that someone else likes irons the same way I do!!! Not too heavy with lots of steam and auto off. If I don't win, I'll consider this one when I need a new one!

Kim P. said...

My iron leaks all over the place. Sure could use one that is dependable!

I'll be needing a new iron soon and this is about the only brand I haven't tried! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

My all time favorite was a Black & Decker, but my current iron is Hamilton Beach and I love it. Lightweight, lots of steam--like the one you are trying. Thanks for the chance at a giveaway!

One can always never have too many irons.... especially good hot irons that produce lots of steam! Count me in!!!

Love your blog and read it every day! Would love to win the iron, it sounds great. Nancy at PugmomQuiltsatgmaildotcom

MissNeat said...

I've been reading your wonderful blog every day for months, now, but have never commented. I have a question about batting: Do you ever use flannel as a batting? I like it because it's thin and flat and adds weight.

Sounds like a great iron and I need a new iron! Thanks for the review. . .and no, I don't empty the water. . .guess that's not a good practice. . .so a new iron would inspire me to "change my errant ways"!

Stoney said...

Thanks for reviewing this iron. I am always concerned with the weight of a product and how easy it is to use it. This sounds like a winner. I am glad you used it for a month before telling us what you liked about it, too.

Irene said...

Looks like the season for failed irons. Mine is on it's last steam! Thanks

Mary W Quilts said...

Sounds good. I have a closet full of irons that I bought bur didn't like. Would love to try this one. Mary

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

My current iron is just barely adequate ... the biggest downside is that it just doesn't put out much steam. When I read that your iron really puts out the steam, I was "sold". Plus it leaks frequently ... what a pain.

Donna said...

I have a Hamilton Beach kitchen mixer which I LOVE! This iron looks to be of the same great quality.

Mayleen said...

I think I'm on a never ending search for the perfect iron so will be looking at this one in the stores. Thanks for the giveaway!

I can always use a good iron.

Gene Black said...

It looks like a neat iron. I try to remember to dump the water, but sometimes I just forget. Sigh.

I am always on the lookout for a good iron, and this one sounds like a winner! I hope the soreness from your recent fall on ice is abating. You can reach me at fdemmertatwindstreamdotnet.

Great giveaway! I'd love a new iron...

Ruth said...

Oh, yes! I have to have lots of steam! When I was at my sisters recently she had a really cheap iron that hardly had any steam and it was awful - she doesn't quilt, needless to say. So, please enter me in the drawing!

tropicslady said...

My current iron is also a Hamilton Beach. I really like the shut off feature and the fact that when I put the iron in the down position it turns back on again.

quilt for fun said...

Sounds like a great iron. I really like my current iron, so maybe this review will remind to empty the water more often!

Jackie said...

I use water in my garment iron (which frankly doesn't get a lot of use) and I do tend to empty that out. I only use a dry iron for quilting with a spray bottle. I'm not sure why though - maybe I should give steam a try! Thank you for a chance to win!

I love a good steam iron that automatically shuts off. I don't want to worry that I left the iron on when I leave the house.

Kathryn said...

My iron seems to be less effective lately. thanks for this review.

Linda Swanekamp said...

Irons are something that are so essential but so difficult to find one that has a lot of steam, balanced to use, hot enough, no spitting, and lightweight. I gave up on the Rowentas and currently have a cheapie from Target that is barely adequate. I would love to try this one.

Karen said...

I'm having iron issues at the moment, would love to try this one.

Mary Ellen said...

Looks like a good one, especially if it gets hot enough. Removing the water after use probably helps with the spitting problem irons often develop over time. I would like to try this one out.

Marilyn said...

Sounds like a great iron, especially with a good
amount of steam. Thanks for the chance to win.

Jeanne in Ohio said...

This sounds like a good iron. Thanks for the giveaway.

I've had good experience with Hamilton Beach irons as well. Thanks for the review and the chance to win!

stitchinpenny said...

Interesting iron - great features. A long term - maybe 6 month followup - would be great to see how the features hold up.

Becky said...

You didn't say if it gets really hot. I bought a new iron last year that was supposed to be great, but it doesn't get as hot as a cheapy I bought at an estate sale. Lots of steam would be great, if the iron was really hot.

hetty said...

Great giveaway. Sounds like a good iron, and I could use a new one.

Jan Hutchison said...

I've yet to find an iron I love - this one looks promising. Thanks!

one line lane said...

I like a steamy iron. Love your blog for it's daily zing of color. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway.

Marti Dyer-Allison said...

I agree with Penny -- my biggest problem with irons is that after a year, they begin to leak. I'd love to know how this one holds up over the long run!

Debbie said...

I love a steam iron....I agree with you about using steam. And yes, I learned a couple of irons ago to empty the water! Thanks for the review and chance.

diane said...

Been a long time since owning a Hamilton Beach iron. I've always left the water in the iron. Guilty. Looks like a great iron.

Hi Wanda,
It sounds like you found a good, reliable iron. Many quilters have problems with theirs and wish for something better. I'll give this one a try.
Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

Chris said...

Ooh, a new iron, AND it's pretty, too! Very nice! But has it been a hassle emptying the water EVERY TIME? I have never done that with an iron, I admit.

McIrish Annie said...

I would love a new iron! I have a Shark now which is ok but the steam is not great on it. Had a Rowenta that I loved but my hubby dropped it. I replaced it with another Rowenta but it was not as good as the old one.

My hubby doesn't understand why I fret over irons. I know you understand!

A good iron is worth it's weight in gold. After going through a gazillion irons in short order, I learned to empty the water after each use and it is amazing how much longer they last. If I don't do it they start spitting in just a few months.

Paule-Marie said...

Thank you for the great giveaway. I like the retractable cord. They always get in the way when you store it. I solved the problem of iron left iron by plugging it into a switch controlled outlet with a small light. Light on = iron on. When we were doing our new house I specifically asked for a 30 amp outlet with a switch in my sewing room. ( my current iron draws 15 amps and that can cause problems like brownouts in your sewing room if not popping the circuit breaker - ask me how I know that :-) !!)

Gari in AL said...

I think irons are the one thing that I hear the most complaints about. How wonderful it would be to win a new one.

I'm in the market for a new steam iron and will now ask at stores for Hamilton Beach, although I don't think I've ever seen them here.

My all time favorite iron is a Hamilton Beach 14413. I bought it just after I started my blog after a series of short lived expensive and inexpensive irons. I am still using it and it is still working. It would be great to have a second iron that works.

I used to like Rowenta irons but the last couple of irons have not held up - spitting water etc..... I would love to try this newer iron. Like you not too heavy of an iron is important. But it also can't be too light either. Thanks for the opportunity!

I'd welcome the opportunity to try out this iron. I never use steam for patchwork...it's caused me distortion in the past. But I find myself spritzing fabric that has been folded for a long time, when I'm ironing it BEFORE cutting, so this feature could be very handy.

gab said...

Thanks for the review With so many iron choices available it is hard to find a good one without actually using one.

After two Rowentas that leaked like a sieve I purchased a Hamilton Beach iron for about 1/3 the cost and I LOVE IT! It does steam so well without leaking. I actually like the weight but it's still lighter than my previous iron. I wouldn't mind a new iron so thanks for including me in the drawing.

Nadine said...

Well this is timely, considering that my Rowenta iron suddenly has no "Burst of Steam" feature any longer. Grrrrr. I spent 3-4 HOURS looking online at irons two days ago, only to give up in frustration and hopelessness of ever finding an iron I liked as well as the Bosch iron I had in Germany (Bosch doesn't market irons in the US unfortunately). I looked at this one actually, and now, after looking at so many, can't remember what I didn't really like about it. Might have been the number of holes on the soleplate--I do like the Rowenta for that particular feature.

Anyway, glad you like the HB iron--and thanks for the review!

Penny Schine Gold said...

Would always love another iron! I'm reconciled that there is no perfect one.

I never empty the water at the end of a session--too many extra steps. I was reassured that you didn't either, but now I'm curious as to why you decided to change and do it the recommended way.

I love an iron that has some weight to it. My current iron is a classic Black & Decker but, if I win, I would definitely put the iron to good use!

It sounds even better than my Rowenta beeping to let you know. A very thoughtful review. …and you are right I don't read the manuals and I have never emptied the water, always mean to :)

Thank you for the chance to win an iron.

I enjoy seeing what you create. I mostly work with repro's, but you are opening my eyes with your beautiful quilts.

Dear Wanda,

Good irons seem to be hard to find, mine is dripping hot water all over my feet. This one sounds good. Thanks.

Thanks for the info on how to add your name. I have tried a few times, but it's never successful.
I never know which box to check at the bottom
I hope I understand how to do this. Also, thanks for having the giveaway.

This is a wonderful give away. I do believe my link is live and not a no-reply.

This from julietwood191atgmaildotcom.
Would love a new iron for my quilting efforts and I have a friend who would bring it down to me in Venezuela. The weight sounds just right, I am tired of leaning on mine!

Thanks for the great review and chance to win. I'm always on the lookout for a good iron. I tend to buy one based on the weight. I have a hard time using a heavy iron. They bother my wrist.
