You just keep some water in a container and sprinkle it lightly on the clothes before ironing. It dries up due to the iron heat & you get a smooth crease. No need for some fancy steam mechanism in the iron, which breaks down more often than not anyways.



Reminds me of a Brooke Bond Red Label ad in yester decades.

Shopkeeper : Chai mein kya khaas , paani ubaalo , doodh patti milao aur pee jayo.

The Lady Customer : Peeyo to Jaano ;)

Apparently it took 5 good years for this to breakdown and she could get a replacement with no questions asked . Not that I find this ethically right but definitely it was worth mentioning .



I agree , Costco has a terrific return policy , but people should not abuse it .

After 5 years , only a cheapo would have accepted a free replacement.

Personally , if I have to return , I return only unopened items .

Update .

I tried the Panasonic and the T-Fal.

As much as I was bending towards the Panasonic 1600W , it makes less steam , even lesser than my 10 year old 1200W Sunbeam , leaving un ironed wrinkles :(

Panasonic seems to be having some design issues (or maybe the one I tried was faulty ) but for me its a NO GO ...


T-Fal works great. For me the obvious choice !!!

Very true .Experienced the same even between a T-Fal 1400 W vs Panasonic 1600 W.

3 Pages bhar diye - sirf eik (1) steam iron ke liye.

Kamaal hey, yaar.:confused:

I bought the Toastmaster one for about $25-30 from Walmart right after I moved to Canada. Even after 10 years, it's still going pretty strong. I fill it with Water before each use, and viola! I get the perfect wrinkled free clothes.

Sir same here .

I also brought a Sunbeam from Walamrt in 06 and it has not died yet .

I don't want to use the same for another 10 years if a better one exists ..

And it does as I experienced after using the T-Fal..

Try the T-Fal , you may switch too :)

With North American highly consumerist lifestyle, our wives buy things that are not really needed right away. So, she already bought a spare one a few months ago (the usual - Sasti lagi hui thi), just in case :(

Not happy!

Final Update ...

I have settled for this one ....T-FAL FV4476 1700 W.

T-Fal is a good brand and wattage should be > 1500W as pointed out by GKT

Unlike my sunbeam , this irons the wrinkles out the first time it is swept over the cloth :)

Available @ CT for $50/- from time to time.
