Ironing…I hate it! If my husband and I had a prenuptial agreement, a non-ironing clause would have been the only thing I would have insisted be included: “Beth, soon to be referred to as “wife,” shall not be responsible for ironing “husband’s” dress shirts, dress pants, or even pillowcases.” Did I mention I hate ironing?!
The reality is, some outfits DO need ironing, even after I circulate them through the “refresh” steam cycle on my dryer. These situations call for a simple to use, effective iron. That, my friends, is the T-Fal Ultraglide 4477.
I received product to facilitate this post.
Paramount to me in an iron is a great “shot of steam” feature. It’s my favorite way to blast away wrinkles. The T-Fal Ultraglide comes with a fantastic shot of steam button. It’s adjustable too, so if you want a just a little steam or a big burst of steam, you are completely covered. And because I love a good shot of steam, I also like a water reservoir that is easy to fill.
The T-Fal Ultraglide comes with a water reservoir that opens wide, and allows for a large stream of water to fill it, with out spilling water everywhere. Trust me – been there, done that a million times with other irons. With the T-Fal Ultraglide, I no longer need to keep a towel right beside me to clean up spills while filling the iron. Hooray!
Another feature I appreciate in this iron are its ability to steam while being held vertically. This is a nice feature for steaming wrinkly drapes, curtains, or other long fabrics. The Ultraglide 4477 also heats up quickly, and works well even on stubborn fabrics like linen. The auto shut-off is a priceless safety feature as well. We all know how terrible it is to get that panic feeling that one forgot to turn off the iron before leaving home. The T-Fal Ultraglide will turn itself off if left on and unused for a period of time.
All in all, the Ultraglide 4477 is simple to use, powerful, and makes the dreaded ironing chore easy-peasy. At around $50.00, its affordable price tag makes me smile too. Smiling and ironing at the same time – you didn’t even think that was possible, did you?!
