Panasonic U-Shape, Steam-Dry Iron (NI-E200T)
This popular and affordable model features a unique u-shaped design that serves multiple purposes. The curved soleplate helps to concentrate pressure away from the tip for less snagging during ironing. There’s also better steam circulation for improved coverage and overall smoother ironing.
Although the Panasonic NI-E200T has few frills beyond the basic features one would expect, it does include a temperature indicator light, dial temperature control, spray mist, and adjustable steam features. The NI-E200T does lack an auto shut-off feature, but overall offers excellent performance for the price.
