As most quilters know, the quest for a great iron is never ending. Well, the quest ends here! I’ve gotten the best little iron!! It’s a CORDLESS iron from Panasonic.
The guru had shoulder surgery earlier this year and ironing has become a real problem. So she has been looking for a new iron. She saw an ad in The Quilt Life, so we went online to read reviews. We went with the black one based on the reviews. She really needed light weight and cordless was a bonus since she’s a leftie.
Some of the reviews said the iron was not hot enough. To be honest, I’ve even used the medium setting for quilters’ weight cotton. It’s plenty hot! One of the best features is that the water storage container detaches so you can take it to the sink. So convenient!! Once it’s hot (in normal heat up time), you have thirty seconds of ironing before it needs to go back on the base for eight seconds. I got that info from the package because I’ve never gotten to thirty seconds!
We are both sold, another one will be ordered soon! Greatest. Iron. Ever. If you’re in the market, I highly recommend it. And while I definitely try to shop local, this was purchased from Amazon.
