I sew, and iron husband's shirts. In the past I have owned two Rowenta irons that have the ability to cancel the auto-off feature. As a sewist I like my iron to be ready to press seams at a moment's notice and not wait for it to reheat because it turned off while I was sewing. Finding any iron that has the optional Auto off or does not have any kind of Auto off is rare . Rowenta offers that option on at least one of their irons . After a couple of years my hundred dollar Rowenta irons each started leaking Lakes of water all over my ironing board. I will never own another one. Then I begin using the velocity brand iron which was even more expensive than the Rowenta and my husband practically had Cardiac Arrest when I was purchasing these. My first one lasted 2 years and then refused to heat. Fortunately I had purchased a two-year replacement contract and I still had a few weeks left on it. I received my replacement and I put another 2-year replacement contract on it. That iron lasted for years before it refused to heat. That particular iron has been my favorite because it had two heating elements, one for the iron and one for the water. It was heavy so it was very good with pressing whatever I was sewing. It never spit and had perfect immediate Steam. To replace that iron would have cost me a hundred and sixty nine bucks just for the iron not taxes or shipping or anything. After searching I found the Viasonic Elite. It isn't as heavy but it is functional in its weight. It doesn't produce quite the amount of steam as the velocity, but it does produce good Steam and it has the push button for the burst of steam. I like that and use it often. It does not have the option for canceling auto off because it does not need that option... It stays on until you turn it off. I have it plugged into the wall socket with a rocker switch which I switch off when I'm done in my sewing room. For the price my husband has suggested I buy a second and keep it on hand for the eventual day that this one might pass to the great appliance store in the sky. On the whole I am very pleased with this iron. My thanks to Viasonic for producing an iron that does not presuppose its users to be so inept at life that it has to second-guess them and turn off automatically.

This is the best iron I've had in a long time. I sew a lot, and I am annoyed by the auto-shut off irons. I like that the sole plate has NO coating on it. I did melt some netting to this iron, but it scraped right off with a paring knife when the iron was cool. The iron is so inexpensive that I was going to order another one for every-day ironing, but, sadly I cannot find it again.

This iron replaced my old iron that had the black Teflon iron plate. I wanted one with stainless steel. I've been very pleased with this iron. I like that it uses tap water and not distilled. Also has steam, spray, etc. and it is not a heavy iron. Seems very well made. I don't do much ironing but I have no complaints so far and I think this iron will probably last me for years.

So far, this is the best iron I've ever owned. I sew a lot, and this works great even on denim. And I love the fact that it doesn't shut itself off after 5 minutes without use. I also love the wide base that allows it to stand upright even on a padded ironing board without falling over all the time.

I opened the iron for the first time last night and it looked as if water had already been in there. My assumption is i was given an iron someone else returned.

I didnt think it was going to be so big... i use this to do iron on shirts... its a little bulky but it does the job pretty good. pretty heavy but no big deal. it also slides alot but also not a huge deal. all in all i like this iron. next time i will look for something smaller..

Seems like, I got a used one with new packaging. The water tank was wet when taken out of the package, water marks on the iron it self. Hmm Pretty sure I ordered a new one I thought.

Used it today for the first time. It heats quickly and steams very nice. It was a breeze to iron. The product information that comes with the iron and the directions are spot on and easy to read. I am impressed and glad that I purchased this. I followed other reviews for this purchase and and glad that they were there to refer to.
