I need a new iron but have no idea what to look of for what brands to get. they all spit. and sputter and don't always get very and don't always remove all the wrinkles.

i have tried black & decker
panasonic

maybe one or 2 others.

any ideas if reliable would be good? whats ur guys experience with them?

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.
