I'm a man, but I can iron, if I have to, I guess.

The Black and Decker Quick Press F975 suits my needs perfectly. With six settings (labeled on the bottom of the iron on what they're for no less!) and a steam button -- all at a decent price -- I have been quite happy with this iron. I also appreciate the internal gizmo that turns off the iron if it is tipped incorrectly to avoid scalding spills.

I opted for Black and Decker based on name recognition and price, but the Black and Decker Quick Press should be a part of any person's selection of tools to keep looking sharp. It has been reliable, easy to use, and does not seem to be hazardous. It also gets creases out like any iron should but the best part is the steam button. Give that a tap for a quick burst of steam to knock out any trouble spots while ironing.

Functionality trumps form with the Black and Decker Quick Press -- it lacks visual items that I've seen on other items and could very well be standard in hotels. However, it is compact, medium-weight and solid. While I wouldn't trust dropping it while its hot -- its plastic shell would likely break -- I do trust it with my clothing and believe it is electrically sound.

Fancier irons might look nice and have extra functions, but this gets the job done. I recommend the Black and Decker Quick Press iron to anyone starting out a new career or any other purpose that includes ironing as part of the weekly routine.
