Steamfast mini-iron on my amazon wishlist when I hurt my elbow in the fall (gardening injury, the wisteria won) because it was hurting to pick up and move my normal sized iron. Yes, I tried ironing left-handed, but it wasn't working for me. I thought an iron that was so small and light might be a good temporary fix and also would be good for classes and retreats. I saw this little guy getting demonstrated at one of the quilt shops we visited in Sisters, Oregon last summer and it seemed like it worked pretty well. So I was very pleased when it showed up in my pile of gifts this Christmas, thanks Jaye!
My review after one use. The filling cup is so very cute and so very tiny. I like how the cord wraps around the hand-hold. The iron gets very hot, very quickly, so be ready for it. And more importantly it gets very steamy, which is great. The feel of the iron in my hand is great, it's well-designed and easy to hold. It doesn't have the weight of a normal iron obviously, but I thought that it did a good job on the test seams I tried it out on. So...two thumbs up from me!
