I have tried to use this iron several times since my purchase. I even sent it back to Redfern and they checked it over and said it was working properly. So I guess if instead of steam you want wet fabric it is working properly. And if you don't mind getting your hand overheated if you use for any length of time then it is working properly.
I feel I threw my $200.00 in the trash for all the service I have gotten out of this iron.
I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT

Replacement O rings which keep steam from escaping were $15.00 for three (3). Replacements should have been around 50 cents. The iron and prts are way overpriced. (read more)

I like the iron. The steam from the iron actually irons the clothes. It does a great job. Using steam, rather than a hot iron, seems easier on the clothes.
The water runs out too often though. It needs to be refilled more often than a traditional steam iron. Users have to be patient because when refilling the iron,it must be turned off and it takes a few minutes for the water to heat up in the iron before you can start using it again. I would still recommend the iron though because it... (read more)

Home show demonstrator promised the iron would steam for more than one hour. It doesn't even last 10 minutes. Spews water, ruins clothes.
Repair on warranty is at your shipping cost and "repair fee".
Very poor quality item, undependable, unreliable. Save your money, buy a $30 Chinese iron instead! (read more)

I truly love this iron...I have properly maintained it....and it's as good as the day I bought it at the home show. I know this iron will last a long time. I use distilled water and clean the tank faithfully every 3 mths. As well, like any electrical item, I don't leave it plugged in and turned on for several hours at a time. This iron performed perfect results on a wedding gown, 2 Scottish kilts and several window treatments, not to mention the regular ironing tasks. As an avid sewer, I... (read more)

I do love this iron when it works. However, it has frightening moments when it literally explodes with steam from the front handle area. I mean explodes !!!!
It is very sudden can make you jump if you aren't expecting it.
I would love to find a similar iron from another maker if there is a better one on the market. There may be a crack in the base, though I have NEVER dropped or mishandled it.
I worry about it's safety as a result. (read more)

I have TWO of these EUROSTEAM irons.... yes they work well WHEN they work. Durablity is a serious problem.... They spit, they overheat, they require frequent refilling, they melt and the cord on one needed replacing. I don't know why they are so costly when they are so 'disposable'. I really enjoyed using it (when it worked) I quilt and it was great for that. Each iron lasted less than a year - so if you are willing to pay that much each year then give it a try. I would really like to... (read more)

Purchased the iron at a home show. Demo was great. We felt a bit pricey but made the purchase anyway. It is very overrated. It does a good job ironing everything however there were problems. The handle gets very hot. The steam button constantly sticks. It runs out of steam in about two or three garments. Have to let cool down before refilling. The back plate cracked and had to be replaced. It is much heavier than a normal iron. I will not buy another one. (read more)

I bought this iron at a trade show. The demonstration was very convincing but when I began to use it I was disappointed. It runs out of water quickly and you end up filling it 3 or 4 times per ironing session. My biggest compaint about it is the handle. After about 6 months I noticed the handle was sticky. With time it is getting worse and worse. I have now had to take nail polish remover to see if I can get off the gummy coating that is all over the handle. If I can't get it off I will not...

I have tried over 20 irons from 50 dollars to $600.00 and this one it's the BEST. No settings no starch needed and it's super fast. The downfault is that you have to constantly put water but with the time you save it's worth every penny. Everyone in my family owns one now. I cAN SEE MYSELF WITHOUT IT. (read more)
