    Default Panasonic Cordless - What do you think?

    I noticed Vanessa at Crafty Gemini using the Panansonic cordless iron. I thought I'd check back and see what the reviews are here for those who have this iron. Do you love it or are you disappointed and why? The cordless part is very enticing but how about the ironing capability? Do you only use it for crafting or have you tried to iron a shirt with it? I hate that dang cord wrinkling what I've just ironed and it's always getting curled up. You know what I mean?

    When we married I told Joe there's one thing I won't do - iron work shirts. It's one of the only luxuries I allowed myself - sending his shirts out to the laundry. It was a cheap way to take care of a job I hate. Here in the Netherlands I took a pair of his trousers for drycleaning and just about keeled over at what they charged me. Needless to say, I didn't even bother seeing about laundering and ironing shirts.

    Guess what I've been doing? Ironing those dang shirts. Yuck! Actually it's not so bad. The attic is finished and it's actually kind of pleasant up there. I can see out over the buildings (third floor) and it's a pleasant view. The window is right there so I can get a nice breeze. AND, Joe rarely needs an ironed shirt since he works at home most of the time. When a business trip is planned that's when I take action.

    Best thing I ever did! I have had mine for 18 months now. It is fantastic! As Pat says Heats fast and hot , steams great. No cord to tangle or iron over no cord to trip over. Nice carry case if you go to class. I put my case on soon as I unplug the base to keep my kitty from going near it. I can't say enough good about it. I think I started something here when I posted how great it was 18 months ago. A lot seem to follow after that.

    I really want a good cordless iron. What model do you guys have/recommend? I love a very hot iron that is not super heavy. I looked up Panasonic cordless irons, and there are lots to choose from so I would love to know exactly which one you guys love and recommend. Thanks!!

    Oh, I'm jumping on this bandwagon!! I fought with my iron cord all weekend. I can't wait to hear which model everyone likes. I'll give my other iron to my daughter.

    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    I too HATE the cord thing.. especially when i'm pressing the binding back on a quilt top! Lots of weight to tug the cord from.. and to make matters worse, it has to go behind me rather than away from the board because of space constrictions...
    May i ask about distilled water??? I found a B&D iron i love for it's high heat and steam,,, but not being a "good girl" about the whole auto clean feature... it spits a bit occasionally..(of course only on white and light fabrics..LOL)..plus it has auto shut off which bugs me no end..
    So guess who is off to search Amazon...))) B
