Types of Irons, Steamers, and Accessories

Most traditional irons on sale today use steam to help the iron take out wrinkles. In addition to standard irons, larger steam ironing systems and garment steamers rival the tools used by professional cleaners. With more features being offered on lower-price irons, you don't have to spend a fortune for a good appliance. Consider your clothing type and regular ironing needs to find the right tool for you.

Steam Irons

These handheld irons are the most commonly used; they release a small amount of steam when clothes are being ironed to help remove creases and decrease ironing time. Many models—even inexpensive ones—include a wealth of convenient features, such as variable steam settings and vertical steaming. Some models are cordless.

Steam Ironing Systems

These systems look similar to traditional irons, but they use a constant flow of pressurized steam. The iron rests on a water tank, and a tube connects the tank to the iron. The pressurized steam decreases ironing time, but these units take up more space than traditional steam irons and take longer to heat up.

Garment Steamers

These steamers are ideal for removing wrinkles from hard-to-iron items, such as drapes and bed skirts, and they can freshen up clothes between visits to the dry cleaner. Full-size and handheld garment steamers are available. Full-size units look like canister vacuums and include a refillable water tank that connects to the steamer with a long hose; because of their large water tanks, they work well for big jobs. Handheld steamers, meanwhile, are good for travel or quick touch-ups.

Ironing Boards

Ironing boards are available as portable or built-in units. Stand-alone and tabletop ironing boards can both be moved around as needed, but tabletop versions are not large enough for full-size garments and linens. Built-in ironing boards are often professionally installed in a drawer or wall cabinet. An ironing board can also be installed on the back of a closet door if space is limited.

Product Features

Product Features

Although inexpensive steam irons come with a lot of smart features, you may want to pay a little more to get even more bells and whistles. Look for features that enhance convenience and promote safety, such as automatic shutoff. To ensure the iron works well for all of your fabric needs, look for a model that allows you to vary the amount of steam released. Here are some of the features you may want to consider.

Auto Shutoff

Most irons will automatically shut off after a certain amount of time if they are laid flat or propped up. Some models will also automatically shut off if left on their side.

Burst-of-Steam Button

This button releases an extra burst of steam to help remove stubborn wrinkles.

Variable Steam

This feature allows you to choose the amount of steam you want, or to shut the steam off entirely.

Cordless Operation

Some models come without a power cord, making it easier to maneuver and decreasing the likelihood that a small child or pet will get tangled in the cord and knock the iron to the floor. These models heat up through the use of a powered base.

Self-Cleaning System

This feature helps flush mineral deposits from vents in the iron to ensure optimum performance.

Nonstick Surface

The bottom of many irons features a nonstick coating that helps the iron to glide smoothly over fabric.

Vertical Steam

This feature allows you to steam fabric while the iron is in the upright position, so you don't need to use an ironing board.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Ironing might not be your favorite chore, but an iron with a lot of convenient features makes the work go a lot more smoothly. Look for a model that suits the way you work—a longer shutoff time if you are a quilter, or a larger water reservoir if you iron clothes in large batches. Also consider how you'll set up your laundry area, and choose irons and ironing boards accordingly to create a safe and efficient work zone.

Size/Weight

If possible, pick up the iron before you buy it to make sure it's comfortable and light enough for you to handle easily. Keep in mind, though, that a heavier iron often does a better job of taking out tough wrinkles.

Safety

An automatic shutoff feature is a must for everyone. If you have small children or pets, a cordless model ensures that no one will trip over the cord or pull the iron down on top of them. Be sure to always unplug the iron when you're done with it and put it away once it's cool. A model with a retractable cord enhances both convenience and safety.

Convenience

You'll want the controls on your iron to be easy to use, whether they feature dials, slides, or digital readouts. Make sure that fabric settings are clearly marked and easy to see. Look for an indicator light that tells you the iron is still on. A transparent water reservoir lets you see at a glance if it needs to be filled, and a removable water reservoir makes it easier to refill the iron without spilling water. If you are a quilter or crafter, you may want to look for a model with a longer shutoff time so it won't turn off while you're in the midst of a project.

Placement

Be sure to find a comfortable place to set up your ironing station that includes easy-to-use storage for your iron and ironing board. If you opt for a portable ironing board, choose a lightweight model with a sturdy frame that easily folds down for storage. If you install a built-in ironing board, aim to set it at hip height for the person who uses the ironing board most (assuming the ironing will be done while standing up).
