Disclosure: I received a complimentary “Black+Decker Easy Steam Compact Iron” through the Amazon Vine Program in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% my own. This post may contain
My daughter requested a new homemade dress. She picked her favourite fabric and we set to making her dress. Before I cut the fabric I ironed out the wrinkles with the “Black+Decker Steam Iron” to make the fabric easier to work with.
Features of the Black+Decker Easy Steam Compact Iron
The “Black+Decker Easy Steam Compact Iron” measures approximately 10 inches from its base to the tip. The soleplate measures approximately 8 inches.
The iron is perfect for most fabric with 7 different settings: Synthetic, Nylon / Silk, Polyester, Blend, Wool and Linen.
The water tank opening is at the top of the iron. The grey cover flips up to reveal the fill hole underneath. It is located between the fabric setting button and the cover which makes filling the tank awkward. There is a max fill line on the side of the tank
The “Easy Steam Iron” has two moisture control buttons on the front: Spray mist and Steam Burst.
Use it as a Vertical Steamer by holding it vertically and using the Burst of Steam button to steam clothing while on the hanger or curtains.
The iron glides across the fabric without catching or sticking. It is light but still works great to remove stubborn wrinkles.
There is an Auto Shut-Off mode for safety. It will stop heating after being left inactive for 30 seconds on its side or soleplate, and 8 minutes after being left on the heel rest. The red indicator light will blink when it is in Auto Shut-Off mode. Move the iron and it will begin to automatically heat to the selected temperature.
The cord measures approximately 8 feet in length. There is a small plastic tube at the base of the iron to protect the cord. It pivots up and down to help keep the cord out of the way when in use. The cord does not retract, so you must find a way to wrap it up for storage.
The “Black+Decker Easy Steam Compact Iron” with its precision point soleplate, multiple fabric settings and steam options makes it easy to achieve crisp results that would make my mother proud.
