Image for Black and Decker Quickpress Iron

Let me just start by saying, I hate to iron clothes. I will go out of my way to avoid it. Fortunately, my whole family pretty much lives in jeans and t-shirts so I don't have to iron very often.

I purchased this iron last year mainly to work on craft projects. I was making shirts for my nieces and nephews for Christmas. I was using iron-on transfers so I need a decent iron. I found this one at Meijers. It was a Black and Decker, which is a brand I trust and it was reasonably priced. It is very easy to use and my shirts turned out great.

The Black and Decker Quickpress is a steam iron. It has an opening on top for the water which is very easy to fill with the included funnel. It has a button on top to set the amount of steam you want. There are also 2 other buttons on top, one gives you a burst of steam and the other sprays water on what you are ironing.

This iron has a dial to adjust the heat setting. It has 6 heat settings and a chart to explain which setting to use on which material. It has a nonstick coating on the ironing surface which is nice. On one of my transfers, I accidently hit the transfer and it stuck to the iron. I just let the iron cool and it peeled right off.

This iron has a nice safety feature that if it is left standing on end for 10 minutes it will shut itself off.

So, if you have to iron, the Black and Decker Quickpress is a good option at a nice price.
