Steam Extreme!


Why all the dismal reviews for this iron? It certainly doesn't seem to be as bad as people are making it out to be on here.Overview: What sold me on this iron was its proclaimed steaming power. I wanted to try something new. I ...

Steam Powerhouse, Steams Vertically. Large Water Reservoir

I see a mine that lasts longer


During the last two years.This Euro-Pro G1490, for me, is just a piece of junk. I see a mine that lasts longer than most - three years - who surrendered before the Ghost. But the attraction has been three years. One of the day, it is very difficult to...

Do not buy this iron.


I think this review will not add anything to the debate. Iron is a waste. I see a mine that lasts longer than most - three years - who surrendered before the Ghost. But the attraction has been three years. One of the day, it is very difficult to fill...

Looks good. Long cord. Heavy weight seems to indicate high-quality

Stops working. Takes forever to heat up. Ridiculously expensive for what you get

I purchased the Euro-Pro GI490 yesterday and will be returning it today for a refund! I was thoroughly impressed with the volume of steam, but the steam doesn't do you any good when the iron constantly shuts off when left unattended for 3 ...

Volume of steam on higher settings, but very little on low setting (nylon)

How I can limit the "cons" to 15 words or less??...DON'T BUY IT!

Euro-Pro GI490 Is Good


Reliable until I finally use Euro-Pro GI490 that I rate it very reliable at price range of $30 up to $100. I like Euro-Pro GI490 because it is light, a little bit slim and has catchy design. It features powerful extended steam burst for continuous...


Energy consuming

Dissatisfied with my Shark. I believe this Shark died way too early.


I bought this iron not even 2 years ago. I liked this iron, because it ironed my clothes really well, unlike other irons. I wanted an iron that really gets hot. From day one it didn't produce a burst of steam like the box said ...

Beautiful iron. High wattage. This iron seem to have gotten hotter than some I've used.

Not worth the price!  Cord is way too long. Cord keeps getting twisted.

Iron or a block of iron only


Euro-Pro GI490 I should say what I have experienced. I should write that this iron is something more than a block of iron only. Sometimes it happens that something I take with the idea and conviction that the concerned thing will be beneficial and the...
