I mean it blows it's gasket at regular intervals unless I keep the steam valve open. I have been sent three new safety caps by the company but each is the same. After taking it to Ace Hardware I was assured that the O ring was seating properly and they suspected the problem was a flawed spring in the cap that was suppose to only "explode steam" to keep the iron from exploding. Now that was informative, helpful and probably very true. I wish I had read these reviews BEFORE I paid $216.00 for this iron. I wish the company would design a different safety cap that would work on the iron that I have. That would go a long way to restoring my faith in Vendors at Quilt Shows.
