    Great Iron Overall

    I've bought a few cheaper irons over the years and they kept dying out every few months so I finally decided to step up and buy a more expensive iron that has great reviews. Searched around the web and this iron was on most of the top 5 lists around. After reading some other reviews im not sure what people expect out of it, at the end of the day it is an IRON it gets the wrinkles out of your clothes and it does its job darn well. I've had no problems with it, I love how you can put water in no problem through the top hatch made to go right in the sink. One great thing about the iron is the fact that it actually gets hot fast. I've had it for a few months now and I couldn't be happier , it's sturdy , has a decent weight to it , it's not as light as most irons but I enjoy that, some may not. If you're in the market for a reliable iron this is the one. Pros: 1.Can fill with water from the sink(or has a separate cup included if you don't want to risk getting it wet) 2.Sturdy, you can tell it wasn't cheaply made 3.Has a touch key(more of a button) to select heat settings. 4. Gets hot fast. 5. Weighs more than the average iron Cons: 1. It weighs more than the average iron, some people may like it some may not.

    I had only heard of Shark through the occasional infomercial and thought they were some third rate appliance company. A friend gave the model just lower than this one rave reviews so I figured I would give it a shot. This thing is hefty. Serious weight to it. It makes ironing very easy. The controls are super simple. Just the push of a button to select your fabric. The only thing with it is that I frequently forget to choose a setting. It won't warm until you choose a fabric. But once you do, it warms up in short time, less than a minute. I don't know if this is endemic to all steam irons, but it does leave water droplets on your clothes while you are using the steam function. I have no idea why those take minutes to evaporate even when I am running the iron over it on the highest temperature, but it is what it is. In all, a very solid iron and definitely worth the money.

    Beware

    I purchased this iron in May 2014. I worked fine for about two months, then it began to leak water to the point that we had to quit using it. Also, the steam button will no longer retract. Best Buy has a 15 day return policy and couldn't help me so I called Shark about a repair or replacement. The service rep said that they could sell me another iron at a "discounted price". I reminded him that the iron has a 12 month manufactures warranty. He said that a discounted price was the cheapest route since it would cost me more to mail it back to them and then pay another $12.95 in return shipping. Bottom line, my wife bought another iron yesterday (not a Shark) and it looks like this one is going in the trash. In hindsight, the iron cost me $25 per month. I should have saved the $50 and sent my shirts out to be laundered.

    Heavy Duty Non drip iron Huzzah!

    Finally a heavy duty non-drip iron that heats up to a temperature that actually removes wrinkles from clothes and fabric. As a seamstress with arthritis I was afraid to buy a heavy iron because of the weight. But this iron's weight is sufficient to eradicate wrinkles without any extra effort from me. In addition, The 1800 watts of power makes ironing quick work. Also for sewing I like the fact that it has an automatic cut-off when not in constant use. HOWEVER the best feature for this arthritic seamstress is the push button selection guide located on the top of the handle. My previous shark iron had the dial located under the handle on the top of the iron itself. Whoever designed that dial selector ought to be fired. My previous shark iron with less wattage had that feature and it was a constant pain to adjust the settings.

    I bought this as a backup iron after my Rowenta broke and didn't even get to use it when a friend fixed the Rowenta. I haven't used the Row yet as I am trying out the Shark. So far, great glide, quick heat. I'm having to get used to having to turn it on each time, rather that it being ready to go with a dip of the iron. Strong steam. The copper is attractive but the shine on it makes me think the iron is on. I really should read the instructions and that will help me understand this iron more. I truly think this is a great iron and a great value for the money. I have spent over 100$ per iron for 20 plus years. (Lots of kids in my house means lots of broken things, plus I use the iron not only for daily clothing, but also for sewing projects). I have been using it for.... a month ish. Glad I bought it.

    So far I love this iron. It's sturdy, not too light or too heavy, the big dial as the temperature control perfect for knowing the right temp for your clothes. Nice size cord, could be a little longer, but it's doable. Also it didn't come with a cup or something to fill the water reservoir, which is sort of awkward to fill, but all that being said I still give it marks. Finally I like it has a green light when the iron is ready, and that it turns off after its inactive for a while. I previously had a different shark iron that was sort of digital, and as it got older the green light would flick on and off at the slightest movement it drove me crazy, so this iron suits me well, having less gadgets

    I am the purchasing lead for a clothing retailer that has 30 locations. I have purchased over 20 of these for our stores to use as their old ones (other brand irons) wear out. It heats up quickly, it is a workhorse and has lasted longer than several other brands that I have tried! I will continue to purchase these and highly, highly recommend them to everyone I meet! I have one in my home as well, we use it every.single.day! Several of our employees have also purchased them after using them in the store! I couldn't give it a 4.9 so the only reason I gave it a 4 was because, they do die, especially if you knock them off the ironing board! They always seem to crack in the same place (which is the bad part), not sure if that is a design flaw or just really bad luck! But I really do love this iron so much that I WILL keep buying them!!!

    Meets Expectations, Good for the Average Consumer

    I use this product primarily to iron pants and dress shirts for work 4 to 5 times per week; my wife uses it on occasion for vinyl projects (ironing designs onto shirts). The iron performs as expected and has some nice features. I use the steam feature quite a bit and feel like it does a great job of getting wrinkles out of my clothes; I have not had any issues with water dripping while trying to steam as I have had with other irons. Another nice feature is a fairly large water reservoir that would come in handy if I were to iron clothes for the entire week all at once. An additional feature that was recently discovered is auto-shutoff; it appears that if the iron is left with the plate down for about 20 seconds the device shuts off.

    Replacement for my old Rowenta

    I had a Rowenta iron that went bad after 25 years. It was heavy and a real workhorse. I don't think they make them as well as they used to, so I gave the Shark iron a try. It's performing nicely and is lighter than my old Rowenta. It heats up quickly and has the same features including an auto-off which is very important. I mostly use it for ironing clothes on my ironing board, but there is the steam blast feature that would be good for hanging clothes or curtains. I've only had it a short while, but so far, so good. And the price was right.

    I was tired of repeatedly buying cheap irons and decided to step it up. This is a high quality product and I love how my clothes come out. Wrinkles come out basically instantly. It glides over clothes smoothly, gives great steam and the water tank is large and easy to pour in. Switching clothes type with a button is convenient as well. It’s is big and heavier then your average iron which is why I won’t give it 5 stars but I think that’s just a sign of the quality of the product and is why it does such a good job.

    Had to do multiple orders and returns and am now giving up. Both irons came with the box opened and water in the water reservoir. I even called Shark to ask if this was because they test them before they send them out. They told me no, and that Best Buy is probably shipping out open box/returned items as brand new. I was shocked they would say something like this, but whatever the reason I’m not paying $50 for a returned iron.

    Positives: Gets very hot quickly, steam is very powerful, knocks out wrinkles with little effort (no need to push down on iron), the pointed tip is great for getting around buttons! Improvements: the wire is to short for working with large pieces of fabric or even ironing on a large iron board. If you have the steam seating on high, the water in the tank emptys very quickly, but it last long enough to press a very wrinkled shirt and jeans. Overall, I love this iron! It's heavy duty but is not heavy in weight, It has a smooth glide, the steam is amazing, and the price was just right!

    My wife and I have tried possibly all of the iron manufacturers out. We found the Shark product to last a long time, very durable. We replaced our old Shark after 4.5 years of use, which was suprising. My wife irons everything, didn't know I married a women like my mother, she irons cloths, curtains, sheets and sometimes makes a great grilled cheese, just kidding not really. When she wears this iron out in hopefully 5 years or more, we will purchase another Shark and will always recommend this product to everyone, when we strike up an ironing conversation.

    Best Iron EVER

    I was using a generic $25 iron for YEARS and always had a hard time to press pants and shirts to get wrinkles out....I literally, no joke, cut my time in half using this iron and it gave dry cleaner results. I was so impressed and happy that I spent the extra money to buy this model. My ironing goes way quicker! The only thing I'm concerned about is that the iron sometimes has water that comes out with the steam (when the level is below maximum)...so I have no idea what that is about?!? But the results FAR outweigh that minor and rare occurrence.

    We were very happy with our previous Shark iron (Pro Electronic). However, after not too many years the cable was starting to give us trouble (would go off until you moved it around a bit), was surprised as overall the quality of Shark seems to be quite good. We decided to give Shark another try and we went for an upgrade with the Ultimate Professional. The added functionality is welcome and the extra weight is a plus to get a good job done (it's still quite light). Just hope this one will last much longer than the previous Shark.

    Worth spending the extra money. Does an excellent job. Gave it a 4 instead of a 5 only because there were only 2 choices of irons in the store. This one cost more but had more wattage. I feel like there might be an even stronger iron on the market, but I definitely believe you will be very satisfied with this one. I don't like to put a lot of effort into ironing and this iron gets very hot gets the wrinkles out very easily. It doesn't rust or drip water which was a problem I had with my old iron.

    I bought this for my sewing projects and basic household use. The iron stopped working after only a few times using it but the customer service reps at Shark were amazing and sent me a new one right away! I read customer reviews that said their reps were terrible and had to pay money to get there irons fixed. Not the case for me. The iron has more weight to it then the description describes, but that was good for me. You don't have to press down to get wrinkles out & the gliding action is nice!

    The best iron I've ever owned

    This is the best iron I have ever owned. You can take the wrinkles out of cotton without using steam. My old iron using steam and a wet press cloth couldn't even do that. I will never purchase anything other than this one from now on. It heats up quickly and lets you know when it is ready to use. I love the electronic display that tells you precisely what fabric type you have it set on. I tell everyone about it. I would highly recommend it in the blink of an eye. You will not be disappointed.

    I ordered this iron from Bestbuy and first thing I noticed when using it was it was a bit heavy. The setting choices are easy to toggle through. First use experience: I used distilled water in the iron for steam action and it worked ok for awhile then it started dripping/leaking onto the clothes. I called Shark and they were very easy to work with as they quickly swapped it out with a brand new one. To be sure the same thing doesn't happen again I now use the iron without water.

    After trying my hands on a few different irons from different manufacturers, I decided to give the Shark Ultimate a try and so far, I’ve been blown away by the performance of this iron. First of all, the price tag is very economical considering aesthetics, and how handy the iron is. Secondly, it heats up fast and does a pretty good job on any type of fabric. So, I would buy this iron again and again if need be.
