Maytag Digital Smart Fill Steam Iron & Vertical Steamer with Pearl Ceramic Sole Plate, Removable Water Tank + Thermostat Dial, Grey/Blue

Maytag Digital Smart Fill Steam Iron & Vertical Steamer with Pearl Ceramic Sole Plate

by StoreBound LLC
What We like

This iron comes with several features that make it feel somewhat premium. However, there is no indicator that shows when it's time to refill the water tank. And, while the steam output is excellent, it also feels a little gushy like you're shooting water out of a hose.

Oliso TG1600 Pro Plus 1800 Watt SmartIron with Auto Lift - for Clothes, Sewing, Quilting and Crafting Ironing | Diamond Ceramic-Flow Soleplate Steam Iron, Turquoise

Oliso TG1600 Pro Plus 1800 Watt SmartIron with Auto Lift - for Clothes, Sewing, Quilting and Crafting Ironing

What We like

This iron boasts a large steam valve that can deliver steam at 1800 watts, but the iron itself only puts out 1400 watts. The iron heats up quickly, and can deliver steam at short bursts, which helps it to handle thick fabrics.

Handheld Garment Steamer, 1200W Smart Steam Mini Electric Iron with 200 ml Water Tank Portable Household Sterilization,Wrinkle-free Clothes

AYAOQIANG Handheld Garment Steamer

by AYAOQIANG
What We like

The steamer performs best on cotton, but it's a decent performer on most other fabrics, and the anti-dry technology helps prevent the skin from over heating or drying. One reviewer complained that the tank is prone to leakage, but it wasn't a frequent problem for us. There are also more basic steam irons that have decent reviews and are pretty darn inexpensive.

Black & Decker F976 Quickpress Iron with Smart Steam Technology, White/Silver

BLACK+DECKER Black & Decker F976 Quickpress Iron with Smart Steam Technology

by Spectrum Brands
What We like

If you only need a compact iron to clean a few wrinkles, this iron can do the job. But don't be fooled into thinking it's a replacement for a traditional iron: it can't steam and doesn't have pre-press capabilities.

Rowenta DW8080 Professional Micro Steam Iron Stainless Steel Soleplate with Auto-Off

by Groupe SEB
What We like

The Rowenta DW8080 Professional steam iron is the best overall pick for service industries like hotels, salons and hospitals because of it's large 12.7-ounce water tank and its ability to be used with tap water. The iron is a top pick for home use as well, if your budget is tight, because it heats up fast for a great price.

Oliso M2 Mini Project Steam Iron with Solemate - for Sewing, Quilting, Crafting, and Travel | 1000 Watt Dual Voltage Ceramic Soleplate Steam Iron, Turquoise

Oliso M2 Mini Project Steam Iron with Solemate - for Sewing, Quilting, Crafting, and Travel

by Oliso
What We like

The Oliso M2 iron was the most versatile of the irons we tested. It efficiently removes wrinkles, it presses seams, and it even manages to remove tiny wrinkles. It, however, had the lowest steam output, and the most powerful option was below 500 watts, especially as cheap irons came with 1000 watts.
