The Sunbeam Steam Master LX is a wonderful iron, that is if you can refer to ironing as woderful. This iron does make it a more pleasurable and easier experience. There are many features that I like about this iron. The one reason I like it so much is for its steaming qualities. With my old iron I would have to press really hard and use spray starch to get wrinkles out of fabrics such as 100% cotton and other very easy to wrinkle materials but with the great steaming of this iron I haven't bought a can of spray starch in quite some time and never will as long as I have this iron. Another great feature is the automatic shutoff, if you leave for too long without touching it, it shuts itself off and believe me I do forget to turn it off quite frequently. Another good feature is the extra long retractable cord. Makes it so much easier to store and it has a large flat bottom surface that makes it stand easily.
