Good Iron, Cord Design Flaw

I love this stainless steel iron (I’ve owned two). The problem is that there is a design flaw in the cord. After a year or two of normal use, the wiring within the pivot starts to get finicky--turning the iron off depending on how the cord lays. My second iron has started doing this, and I’ll probably actually take it apart and repair it this time rather than buy another one.

I love your iron

I love your iron,but I have bad eyes,and I can,t see the water when I put it in,because the glass has a color to it. If only it was clear glass hope you change this before I die,I,m in my 80,s now

It doesn't come with a filling flask.

It doesn't come with a filling flask. You have to put the front part of the iron, under the faucet to fill the water tank. All the steam irons that I have purchased before came with a free filling flask except for the shark iron.

I have been more than happy!

The Shark Lightweight Pro was my first proper/quality iron purchase and I must say I have been more than happy with it. It has performed even better than I could have imagined. In fact, it's so awesome that when I wanted to impress the beautiful girl at the office, I bought her one too! It's features are wonderful and very simple to operate. But note, just because they are simple, doesn't mean the Shark is lacking features by any means. The auto-off is awesome and I love the self cleaning feature. The Light...more

The Shark Lightweight Pro was my first proper/quality iron purchase and I must say I have been more than happy with it. It has performed even better than I could have imagined. In fact, it's so awesome that when I wanted to impress the beautiful girl at the office, I bought her one too! It's features are wonderful and very simple to operate. But note, just because they are simple, doesn't mean the Shark is lacking features by any means. The auto-off is awesome and I love the self cleaning feature. The Lightweight Pro packs a powerful lil punch too! It can certainly hold its own against it's bigger Shark brothers I'm sure. The steam is strong and steady, and the stream burst is great. By far the best feature is undoubtedly the price! Come on, $40 is a steal! I expected to pay twice that for a professional quality iron this good. The overall design is pretty darn good as well. Not that it really matters what an iron looks like, but I must say compared to some of the others the Lightweight Pro is rather handsome (if that's possible anyway, haha). It also has a great feel to it. The handle is very comfortable in your hand and the spray and steam burst buttons are in the perfect spot for convenience. If there is one downside to the desing and the iron in general it would be the placement of the fabric selector button. With it so close to being directly under your hand, it's easy to accidentally hit the button and change your temperature without knowing it. After a few uses you do get use to it though. Overall, if you're looking for the best introduction to a pro quality iron or even replace your current "high quality" iron, there is no need to spend hundereds of dollars on something that doesn't even compare to the Lightweight Pro. There is nothing low quality about this iron except the price. Thanks to this iron, ironing is no longer a chore, but a pleasure to do instead. And not to mention thanks to the awesomeness of the Shark, I found the perfect ice-breaker for the gorgeous dream girl. Until now she was merely an acquaintance who's beautiful eyes so frequently trapped and rendered me speechless. Yet now in a life of crisp, wrinkle free shirts and pants. A life after the Shark Lightweight Professional iron, our freindship flourishes! Thank you Shark!-Wrinkle Samurai
