Iron Addiction- a Shark

A picture of just how bad my addiction is here. My favorite is here. One not to buy, is here. This Shark is a current one.

Shark Iron

I purchased it after my Reliable died and the particular model was no longer available. 🙁

I like the weight ( I like my iron to do the heavy work) and size. But it leaks like crazy.

So I started using it as a dry iron after this one started to get too hot (read why here):

I feel like I go through irons like crazy. Sigh. I’ve read Reliable is coming out with a new model like the one I had and loved. It’s a little pricey but….

You wouldn’t think finding a good iron would be so difficult would you? On the journey. Jackie

    I bought the reissue of the Black & Decker awhile ago & it is heavy like the 1970s & 80s models but it fell on the basement floor. It would’ve lasted and it ironed nicely. A good iron is a necessity for quilting.

      Thanks Bonnie, I would imagine the basement floor did the iron in. 🙁

    I think part of the problem is that the uses of irons have changed. People use irons for crafts more now than serious ironing of clothes (guessing, I have no data) and I don’t think manufacturers realize that except Rowenta and Oliso and, perhaps Reliable.
