When we went to see Bonnie Hunter in Storm Lake our daughter Kelli and I set up an ironing station. People used her iron and my iron. Time and time again people would ask Kelli where she got her iron. Everyone commented on how hot it was and how light weight it was. After all those comments, I decided to give it a try…..I loved it.
Kelli kept telling people that it was a cheap iron and she wasn’t positive where she had bought the iron at. The line to use Kelli’s iron was always long….the line to my iron..NOT.
My iron was not a real expensive iron…maybe $40. It has auto shut off. It has a retractable cord…or did have a retractable cord. It doesn’t work anymore. The iron is only a year or so old….but I have never liked it. It doesn’t heat up very hot. If I have a truly wrinkled piece of fabric the wrinkles never come completely out.
Kelli has been coming home for sewing days. Because she hates my iron so much, she has started bringing her iron. The last time she was home she came with this….
an iron for ME!! I love it! We tried it out and boy am impressed with it. The wrinkles are gone with just one past of the iron. With my old iron I would almost push the iron down into the fabric and even then they wouldn’t come out. Even though it’s bad manners, I asked Kelli how much the iron cost…she said right around $10. It just amazes me. The iron is super light weight. It heats up super hot and does an amazing job.
I didn’t believe that it was so cheap so after Kelli left I went on Amazon to check to see if she was joking or if it was the real price. It would be just like Kelli to spend more and not tell me. Here’s the iron she bought for me….Continental Electric CE23111 Steam Iron. She was telling the truth…it’s $11.53.
I am hoping to give my new iron a little work out today. I know for sure that from now on…no more turn themselves off irons. No retractable cord irons. No expensive irons…it’s cheap Continental brand from me from now on.
