There was a time when I would never iron my clothes. My best friend would always point out the wrinkles in my skirt or pants. She would always tell me “Why don’t you iron your clothes?” I would tell her that one day I would buy myself an iron. I told her this for years. So one Christmas year I decided to buy myself an iron. That same Christmas year my best friend also bought me an iron. I have always had two sets of different name brand irons. One iron is the Panasonic Cordless Iron and the other one is the Black & Decker Iron.
The Panasonic Cordless Iron has many wonderful features. For example, the Panasonic iron is cordless so I can take it with me and use the iron wherever I would like. I have taken the iron on trips, to work and at a church function. I have found the Panasonic Cordless Iron come in handy many times in my life. The Panasonic Cordless Iron comes with a nonstick-coated sole, which prevents from sticking to any clothing that I am ironing. This has made the task of ironing simple and stress free. I don’t have to worry about burning my clothes or trying to clean the piece of clothing off the sole of the iron. The Panasonic Cordless Iron comes with a temperature control gage, which I can easily set it on the level of heat I desire. For example, on clothing such as silk I put it on a lower setting versus a shirt made of cotton. The Panasonic Cordless Iron also has a steam dry setting. So it can give my classy shirts that steam look. The Panasonic Cordless Iron comes with a charger that I can charge anywhere that has a plug. The Panasonic Cordless Iron has a carrying case, which makes storing and traveling with the iron easy. The Panasonic Cordless Iron has a self-cleaning device, which cleans itself. This low maintenance iron makes life easy for me. The Panasonic Cordless Iron cost about $60 dollars not including tax. You can find it at stores such as Target and Kmart.
The Black & Decker Iron also has wonderful features. The Black & Decker Iron comes with a stainless steel sole. I love it because the stainless steel makes it resistant to sticks and starch buildup. The Black & Decker Iron has a digital light that lets you know exactly what temperature setting it is on. Adjusting the temperature is made easy with the different settings that are provided. The Black & Decker Iron has a grip handle that is comfortable. I could iron clothes for an hour and my hand never feels uncomfortable or tired. The Black & Decker Iron comes with a ten second-auto shutoff. I love this feature because sometimes I get distracted and I forget to turn the iron off. With the auto shutoff I don’t have to worry about shutting it off. It’s a safe feature especially if you have children. The cost of the Black & Decker Iron is $40 dollars not including tax. You can purchase the Black & Decker Iron at stores such as Target, Wal-Mart or Kmart.
Both the Black & Decker Iron and the Panasonic Cordless Iron are wonderful products. The Panasonic Cordless Iron is convenient to travel with because it is cordless. With the Black & Decker Iron you always have to find an outlet to plug it in. In addition it doesn’t come with a case that you can store and travel with. The Black & Decker Iron is $20 dollars less expensive than the Panasonic Cordless Iron. The Black & Decker Iron also has that wonderful shut off feature that I love. Which one would I pick as my favorite is difficult. If I had to pick it would probably be the Black & Decker Iron. Again I would recommend either of the products to anyone who is in search for a great iron.
