T-fal FV4476 Ultraglide Easycord Steam Iron
Although most people associate the T-fal brand primarily with quality cooking and baking items, they also make excellent linen care products. One such product is the FV4476 iron, which combines excellent performance and durability with a reasonable price. This iron can be had for well under $50, and has multiple design touches that make ironing a more convenient and simple experience. These include a cord design to keep it out of the way (and avoid re-wrinkling garments),a self-cleaning feature and a anti-drip system, something especially important with irons such as this that deliver powerful bursts of steam.
The ceramic soleplate provides evenly distributed heat while being scratch-resistant and nonstick for smooth gliding and durability, although the soleplate itself also comes with a lifetime warranty. The three-way auto-off feature will shut the iron off when left for 30 seconds on the soleplate or if on its side, as well as after eight minutes if left on the heel. For the price, it is difficult to do much better than this high-performance and easy-to-use iron.
