Design: Most of the users want a nice design home appliance. This Black & Decker has a classical look. Maybe your grandmother used this type of design but still this iron is very popular for some reasons. Personally I liked its overall design and mainly its construction. This iron is heavy so you don’t need huge pressure during use. Its weight is about 1 pound. Its top side is made by black plastic which is actually a handle and bottom side is made by stainless steel which is actually soleplate and body. Heat control manual knob is located on the front side of its handle. Overall I liked its design very much.
Heat: This 1100 watt electric iron heats up really quickly. When you're ironing a shirt in the morning trying to get ready for work, heat speed is the key. This iron does not disappoint you. You can easily select a heat setting by manual heat dialer. You have to select heat control dialer by determine your fabric type. This Black & Decker iron does not have any LCD display but its quick heat up capability impressed us.
Steam: This Black & Decker has different type of steam options. There are 25 large steam hole vents on the soleplate through which the steam dispenses. Stem control button located on the front side beside fabric selection button. There are 3 steam control settings available with this nice electric iron.
Soleplate: This electric iron has aluminum soleplate. Some users complained that the soleplate it not as smooth as some others expensive iron. Actually aluminum soleplate is little bit cheaper than stainless steel soleplate. I think this soleplate is good enough if think about its price. As a cheap electric iron its soleplate good enough. Aluminum is lightweight and is an excellent conductor of heat which is why it is suitable to be used as an iron soleplate. There are 25 large steam hole vents on the soleplate.
Auto Shutdown: This electric iron has 3-way automatic shut-off feature which is important for any type of iron. Most of the users need safety first for any home appliances. If you are that ditzy that you can't remember to turn the iron off then this is a really good feature.
Water Tank: Its water tank is not clear. Dark water tank is very difficult for reading water level. You have to tilt the iron much more to know where the water level is at. You can use ordinary tap water with this Black & Decker F67E iron but you have to wait 90 seconds for heat up. Company recommends distilled water only to keep the plate clean.
Cord: Cord is also an important consideration factor for iron because usually we use iron long distance from AC outlet. Company will provide 8 feet cord with this electric iron. I think 8 feet is enough for most of the situation. If you need more long cord then you can use cord extenders and make sure that this cord is at least 15 amps.
Verdict: There are a lot of electric irons are available for buy but searching a good electric iron with reasonable price is a very difficult task. During our test we really satisfied for this Black & Decker F67E iron. Its quick heat up feature, easy to use controls and robust performance really impressed us. It is not very expensive so I think you can buy this iron without thinking. You can give it a try. According to some user opinions this iron has less complains and long life Spain. Product longevity is a very important factor for consideration. For its overall performance we were very impressed. We highly recommend this iron to anyone who wants to buy a good electric iron and don’t want to spend huge money. Don't feel heasitate to try this electric iron.
