I bought this "oldie but goodie" at a yard sale for 2 dollars. It is exactly what I had been looking for!
I am so tired of paying high prices for name brand irons only for them to go out on me within 2-3 years. I tried calling the company about repairs or replacing and they said they would be happy to repair the problem but it would cost me $89.00! The iron cost me $129.00 so it was't worth it to me to pay the cost of shipping and repair.
This one was made by General Electric and I'm not sure of the year.
Anyway, it works wonderful!
