The food processor wasn't the only new toy that entered our house recently. Yes, I'm going to use it for sewing and to occasionally iron a tablecloth, but this beauty is really for David. My hardworking man has to dress up for work, so he irons almost every single day. I HATE ironing clothes, so David is the official ironer in this family. Previously we've had nearly disposable irons that would work okay for awhile and then start leaking or spewing scrungy stuff all over the clothes. We wouldn't replace them, and it would make David's life miserable for months on end until we finally shelled out for another cheapo iron. If it's going to be used every day, we thought we'd go for a quality product that hopefully will last a lot longer than our other iron purchases and maybe will be a little easier to use. I haven't had a chance to iron with it yet, but it does seem to have a massive amount of steam and it has a pleasant heft in my hand. I like a nice heavy iron so I don't have to push down too hard. Having the new iron hasn't made me want to take over ironing David's shirts for work, but it does make me eager to get sewing!
