Love the Shark professional. Inexpensive. Does not spit and has incredible steam and heat.

I have 2 Reliable irons, and my mil has one, all different models. I will never go back to another iron, and I have tried most of the brands over time. They are they only ones that I have found never to spit, and have extensive steam. Enough to steam out anything, plus not burn or scorch my fabrics. I use one to preshrink all my wools and fabrics I can't wash. I highly recommend.

I've had a Reliable iron for about 2 years and it's great. It does not spit or leak and the steam generator mode really makes it easy to remove wrinkles. I would buy it again!

ditto again. Mine is the reliable velocity and after several B&D and one Rowenta (that one was my biggest nightmare) this one is great!

Regarding the Shark. I purchased one this spring for about $70. The first one stopped working after one or two uses so I returned it to Kohl's. This one is only several months old and already has some rust coming from one of the steam holes. Grrrhh!

I had a $99 Rowenta Professional that lasted 20 years without spitting and produced great steam before it finally died. Currently I'm using a $50 Black and Decker digital iron that produces great steam or as little steam as I choose. I've had it for 8 years - still waiting for it's first spit-up.

I have heard that Reliable irons are terrific, and I might just try one next time around.

I think that finding the perfect iron is a roll of the dice.
