Getting my ironing board out and standing for ages killed so I decided to purchase this. It is expensive compared to a normal iron but boy is it GREAT. I can zip through 30 shirts in an hour! It takes a little getting used to so you don't scold, and it could do with being a little higher for taller people, but I get round that by hanging the hanger over the top where the steam head hangs. Pockets, buttons, transfer prints, labels and pleats not a problem at all. Large easy to fill water container. No effort to iron the steam does all the work. Wheels away for storage and done. I LOVE IT.
