Panasonic NI-E650TR unique “U-Shape” Steam-Dry Iron with circulating steam, Titanium non-stick Soleplate has a curved soleplate that concentrates pressure at the cneter of the iron, instead of at the tip, so there is less tugging, snagging and minimal wrinkling when ironing. The U-shaped designed helps circulate steam under the soleplate for smoother ironing with up to 25% more steam coverage based on other Panasonic irons. Panasonic’s innovative mercury-free sensor gives you added security by automatically shutting the iron off after 10 minutes if left in the upright position and 1 minute if left unmoved on its soleplate or if tipped over on its side. That is “3-way” protection. Temperaure Ready Indicator Light conveniently displays that the setting is on or off, Dial Temperature Control, Automatic Retractable Cord Reel for easy storage, Spray Mist allows you to direct extra mosture when needed and a “Adjustable Steam” feature depending on the fabric that is being ironed. Jet-of-Steam / Self Cleaning feature for cleaning the unit and for a quick burst of steam for those stubborn wrinkles. Vertical Steam and Anti-Calcuim round out the features on this unit. Dimensions: 5 5/16″ (H) x 4 7/16″ (W) x 10 11/16″ (D), 3.3 lbs. White w/Violet water tank

    Solid performer, with two "wrinkles" (I know, sorry) I am a rumpled person. The iron and I are not BFFs. It lives in the closet and only comes out for occasions where being rumpled could cost me a job or make my mom yell.I picked this iron because of the retractable cord, the vertical steam function, and because it's Panasonic, the same company that made my TV, which actually IS my BFF. Man, I'm really painting a flattering picture of myself right now.Anyway, I tested this iron on a cotton dress shirt and on heavyweight silk/cotton blend drapes (using the vertical steam function).PROS- The retractable cord is everything I wanted it to be. The cord is 7-8' in length, and retracts into the base at the push of the button.- Super fast -- heats up in 1-2 minutes.- Strong "Jet of Steam" feature injects a powerful burst of steam into wrinkled fabric. It worked to smooth the crooked seams on my shirt in 2 passes.- Pretty easy to fill under the sink.- Smooth ironing experience,...

    Hope it lasts as long as my other Panasonic iron I'm a quilter so my iron gets a lot of use. By "a lot", I mean 2-3 hours a day, 5-6 days a week. My last Panasonic is still working after two and a half years, even after mistreatment. I don't empty the water after each use and I've gotten the sole plate sticky (that dang fusible web!).This one is as easy to use as the other one. Manufacturers have finally figured out to place the fill opening so the iron can be filled vertically without spilling. It glides smoothly over fabric, something you'd take for granted until you had an iron that doesn't.The only thing I don't like is that (compared to my other Panasonic), there's a "wobble" when I place it upright. I think it's because this iron is a bit large for its base, and the balance doesn't seem quite right. Another minor quibble has nothing to do with performance: Manufacturers need to stop putting a plastic film on the sole plate. It's too easy to turn the iron on without looking at the sole plate, which...

    The Top Ten Things That are Great About the Panasonic U-Shape Steam Iron 10. They talk a lot about the U-shaped design. That's supposed to help steam circulate to more places, giving you more steam for your buck.9. It's purple! That makes it easy to spot and sometimes it even makes me smile when I'm ironing.8. It heats up quickly. No waiting around for the iron to be ready. It's ready to go.7. It's light and handles easily. The term "iron" implies heavy, and of course, early irons were, well, made of iron and HEAVY. This is apparently not made of iron and glides around like a little ice skater on your wrinkled shirts. Apparently it has a titanium finish that helps with the gliding thing. Ice skaters may want to look into that.6. A retractable cord. Yep. That sucker zips right back into the iron. Always hated wrapping the cord around the handle and then trying to stand the iron upright and having it fall over because the cord made the bottom all lumpy.5. A nice long cord. I can...
