    Darn. We had high hopes. Spits and Clunks.

    This was replacing a 20 year old iron and we don't iron that much anymore. However, we do like to be able to iron linen shirts and put creases in trousers. This iron filled well, looks great, good weight, great price, and had a great burst of steam. BUT..... when we stand it on the heel, it makes a horrible CLUNK noise ... very disconcerting. We gave it about five minutes of "clearing" time, and even did the self clean (we just bought it!). Didn't help. And, when ironing with the water level about ¾" below MAX, SPIT all over the linen shirt ... ironed ironed CLUNK then SPIT ..... so back it goes. Life's too short to 1)iron unless absolutely necessary, and 2)stress about it. ( I also used a $10 Best buy certificate so hope I get that back as well).

    We bought this iron because our old one was scorching our clothes. We have a Shark vacuum cleaner and have been very happy with it, so we thought we would try their iron. My wife likes it because it is lightweight and easy to use. It has allot of different settings which makes it easy to use on any type of material or clothes. To me it "feels" well put together. Even though, like most things it has a bunch of plastic on it, it still is a solid machine. So far it has been great.

    Lightweight yet powerful enough

    I have had this iron only for a few weeks now, but I am really impressed. It is one of the few irons that I have used that does a good job on cotton and linen even without steam. The steam just make it that much more effective. The steam controls are good and easy to regulate. The pointed tip for the button gap is a well thought feature that I am beginning to appreciate. Still a fairly new iron, but I am hopeful that it will work well for a long time without developing leaks.

    My Rowenta started leaking water at the bottom of the water tank all over my board. I bought this assuming it will have a short life span as most of the recent irons have been this way. So Far so good only gripe is when you set it to high heat with steam,sometimes it leaves little dots of water as the steam comes out. But as you iron you will vaporize the little water pellets on your clothes. It heats up fast and irons smoothly.

    Great Iron for the Price

    This is a great iron for the price. My husband has to wear uniforms to work, so I needed an iron that could withstand being used daily. It heats up fast and the quick steam button is great for getting creases perfect. My only complaint is that the cord seems short, I have to use an extension cord when it's being used otherwise I pull the cord out of the wall mid-iron.

    I did not realize that my old iron was doing such a poor job until I used my new Shark Professional Lightweight iron. The pointed tip is great for getting between pleats or around buttons. It heats in record time and the water reservoir is more than adequate. It is a little heavy but better than the Shark Professional that I returned because it was just too heavy. I think I might enjoy ironing now - maybe.

    Bought this as a replacement iron. I looked at it before but purchased another in its' place. Wish I would have gone w/ my first mind and purchased this one the first time! Ended up returning the other one and purchasing this and it works great so far! No stains on clothes, heats up fast and minimal dripping, Plus, super fast shipping!

    beautiful red iron steam works great lightweight the only problem is it leaks occasionally. I took back the first one I purchased within a month because of leaking. This 2nd one is also starting to leak only when moved around you'll see a drop here and there. It is a awesome iron otherwise. Caution: Shark only allows a 15 day return through best buy. Something to think about.

    My mother in-law needed to replace her iron ASAP and was asked if I could pick one up. She absolutely loves the shark so much, said it was the best iron she ever got. BTW, this iron was replacing a more expensive one. I will be purchasing an additional one soon for my home.

    Best Inexpensive Iron

    This iron is visually stunning and looks like you paid a lot of money for it, when I only paid less than $25 for it. It really gets the wrinkles out and doesn't leak like most irons do. I thought it would be heavy, but surprisingly it's very lightweight. I couldn't be happier with this iron and have no doubt it will last a long time. Not bad for the price.

    Good iron for the price. Does its job for the amount I paid but there are just some shirts that refused to be ironed by this which is to be expected since this is a light iron. For some reason tho, I get water sometimes randomly flying out or the steam button randomly would squirt out water. Not sure if it's just my unit or the iron in general.

    I am not really an "iron" guy, I was just looking for one that could iron patches on my jeans, and this did the job, as I really did not want to sew! And knowing I can press my clothes if I need to, it's nice to know the iron (without a board) is nearby.

    Does exactly what an iron should do---presses my clothes nicely. Heats up quickly, not heavy to move around, has a nice spray (if you need to use it). At age 75, I've done a lot of ironing in my day and have no complaints about this product.

    This is our second Shark Iron. It gets used a ton, as did the previous model we had. Works well, gets plenty hot and has good steam. Controls are different from the previous model we owned, but they are simple to use. No complaints...we are sold on the Shark product.

    I enjoy this iron. The steam is powerful, the unit heats up quickly, the soleplate is easy to clean, and it is lightweight. The only things to be careful about are overfilling it with water or accidentally unplugging it while ironing. Both of these events will cause the iron to leak.

    Spews water

    I recently purchased this unit to replace an older Panasonic unit. Pros: great steam (manual & low/high/off settings) and works great on all materials. Cons: it spews water through a vent hole on the fill cap. Not sure why it is there, but still spews out even when closed and not filled completely.

    The Shark iron that I purchased is great. The price that ibpaid for the iron is excellent. There are numerous heat settings and steam settings. The iron is easy to handle. There is also a self-cleaning option that works just like the self-cleaning option on most stoves.

    First of all no additional funnel or small cup to add water. The dial in relation to handle is tight, often wind up hitting the dial and having to return it to the proper setting. Other than that the steam is sufficient to get the job done.

    I love all things shark and this iron didn't fail me. It's light weight and the heat settings have been material applicable. I even have had good luck with the upright steamer function and I never thought steamers were worth the time. All in all a great iron and another win for Shark!

    In my opinion this is a great and affordable iron if you just want to get the job done. The only negative being that it doesn't hold a lot of water. I usually have to keep a container full of water by my side to refill it as I am using it.
