Help!  Which iron to purchase?  I bought a medium priced Sunbeam 2-3? years ago and it is just about dead.  Just doesn't heat up very hot.  Of course, we have hard well water, which sometimes I put in, so that may be the problem.  Do I need to use just distilled?  I usually use the water that goes through the water purifier.    ANyway, I will probably be in the market for a new iron.  any advice?  Expensive vs cheap?

Cindy:

I'd say in general the less you pay and the more you dislike your iron the longer it last.

and that is when you throw it on the floor, repeatedly, until it gives up the ghost

I have 3 Rowenta irons and love them.  One I inherited from my grandmother.   Today at quilt day someone brought an iron in a carrying case, cordless and steams.  It was so cool.  Apparently you can get them at Sam's Club for $60.  I think the retail is $99.99.  I want one!

I think this is it.  I didn't see it listed on Sam's Club's web but I know they had it because two ladies went and bought one they were so impressed.

Before time mostly ironing boards were made up of wood ,heavy in weight,difficult to move from one place to another,In modern age boards are made of metal. These metal boards are extremely reliable and its mesh top easily allows the steam to go by and evaporate. The metal is quite light in weight and is very simple to both set up as well as fold. With the light weight metal, one can easily move the board from one place to another
