I hate ironing. In fact, I won't do it. This steamer works really well. I have only had one other steamer and this one is better than that one, so if you are looking for a basic steamer to get the kinks out of your shirts, this is the one.
The steamer did not work at first use. The steam came out after about 30 seconds after it was turned on, then it was cool to room temp. quickly. I had to turn it off and on again, and the problem repeated. The hose was hard to move. I returned it right away, and will never buy their products.
