Generates static so fabric clings to it as you iron.A nice light iron with easy to use dial, enough cable and space to wrap it round the iron, Nice slim pointed end. Not the hottest iron I have ever used I must say, but just about adequate.
But it has a very strange problem I have never met before in all my 69 years of which most have been spent ironing [I started young!] It builds up static and causes even 100 pure cotton fabrics to cling to the sole plate so as you lift the iron off to attack a new area of the garment ...tea towel..whatever, the fabric tends to be moved and folded over so you must re-straighten it. This happens with damp or with bone dry laundry.
I suspect the special streamline pattern on the sole plate may even be a bit abrasive as the iron is getting dusty unusually quickly and the dust looks like fabric dust as it matches the colours I have ironed. I have only ironed a few items with it so it must be really quite abrasive. I will have to develop a new method to cope, always moving the iron away from the bulk of the fabric before lifting off. How intensely annoying. I think I will have my lovely old dry iron mended.
