Comments about Black & Decker Steam and Dry Iron:
I was excited to buy an iron that had a nice weight to it and seemed sturdy and durable. I loved the auto shutoff because as soon as I picked the iron up it was right back without a lot of resetting and delay. The steam function worked great! I see in the reviews that some people were complaining that the iron leaked. I didn't have this problem. However, I quickly became discouraged by the sticky sole plate. How in the world can I press anything when the iron will not move? It is a serious workout to keep the thing moving and encountering a seam brings it to a dead stop! I am so frustrated. I can not recommend this iron because of the frustrating stickiness or roughness of the plate! It feels like there is glue or sandpaper on the bottom of the iron when I try to move it!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This iron leaks all over the place and the iron does not glide at all!

Leaks no matter the setting it is on.Have tried at different settings with no steam and it still leaks.

It leaks, badly, however I have requested a replacement and will be glad to evaluate that when it arrives.
A waste of money
The iron worked for awhile and then just stopped working! I can get it to turn on after multiple tries sometimes, only to have it stop working within seconds. What a waste of money!

Love the weight, the feel and, especially, the look. The iron highly resembles all my stainless steel appliances but at the fraction of the cost. Its' "personality" takes me back a few decades. My only critique is that Black & Decker #at least I've yet to find# doesn't have an oven or refrigerator to match. All we'd be missing then is Ward, June, Wally and "The Beav" Cleaver.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Works Great Until it Stops Working
Iron looks to be in perfect condition. Only used a few times a month but has now stopped working. Very frustrating that "throw away" items are all that we get in the U.S. now.
Sticky soleplate and more
The steel soleplate does not glide easily. Need to update with more steam holes. Over 1 lb heavier than first B&D. Worst complaint is the needless knifelike tiny metal piece sticking up behind the adjustment tab. Got a deep cut on thumb with very first try.

we have many irons here, yes some are Black and Decker newer versions. When the iron I love gave way I didn't hesitate to go to the internet and find a replacement. The others are still here but I only use the one that I feel comfortable with. No offence but the newer ones do not have the firmness as the one I use. Thank you for not replacing the old with the new. sincerely, Sister Maureen Flanagan
great, basic iron.

I had owned this iron as one of my first appliance purchases And loved it. I used to use the iron to put sharp creases in my uniform shirts and trousers. This appliance also took a great deal of abuse(unlike later models) and could drop to the floor and not leak.
