When I recovered from the shock of its demise I began to look forward to purchasing a new one. I assumed that in the 30 years that have passed since the last time I bought one there would be loads of new features.
I was surprised to find that steam irons look pretty much today like they did years ago. They weigh the same and have the same features.
I chose this beauty. I tried not to be swayed by her pretty color and only after comparing all the features of the other models I settled on this one.
I'm sorry that it isn't blue -- but the pink makes me smile and since ironing clothes is right up there with scrubbing toilets in my least favorite things to do -- anything I can do to make the task more agreeable is worth it.
