Black And Decker Classic Iron. An Iron I Have Always Used
In my early years growing up in the late 1970's and early 1980's the iron in my household was the Black and Decker classic iron. It was the iron I was using when I first learned how to iron my clothes as a little boy. Of course I have childhood memories of moving it around and being scared of not getting a burn. A few weeks ago I was out shopping for an iron. I saw the classic iron on display. Then suddenly all of my childhood memories came back to me. I just had to purchase one. This is now my current iron and I love it.
Features of the Black and Decker classic iron.
The iron has an aluminum soleplate. I love the feel of the iron. It's a bit heavy however, I think this is actually better since the weight helps to get rid of the wrinkles quicker. There is an easy to read guide on the Black and Decker classic iron itself telling me the material and the heat setting for each type of material. The print is actually not really small also. The hole at the front surrounded by the metallic ring is where I can put water into the iron for steam. Depending on the setting I can have steam come out automatically or I can press the orange button on the top which is the steam surge button. Pressing this button releases a burst of steam onto my clothes. There's also an auto shut off feature I forget the iron on because I got distracted by something. A great safety feature. This prevents a lot of fires for sure.
