So today, I would like to share a little bit about the Durathon Iron that the great people at Hamilton Beach sent me to review back in February….I can’t believe it was that long ago already (although I still do have even OLDER things to share with you eventually!)
I didn’t really need a new iron, my old one was fine, but I did kind of like the idea of the retractable cord on the Durathon, so I said go ahead and send it.
I love the retractable cord on this iron just as much as I thought I would. So much tidier…..and you all know I could use all the help I can get in that area!! I also REALLY, REALLY like the way the settings light up with different colors from Blue to Red the hotter you go…..I know, I know….. simple little color things like that delight me even if they don’t have a lot of different “functionability” than my other iron. It is easy to see what setting it is on that way. I haven’t tried the steam function, but I rarely use steam. To be honest, I was also really impressed with how smoothly the ironing surface glides across the fabric. The coating on this one seems to be a couple of notches above my other other one.
Oh, and I photographed it with some fabrics that my friends at Clothworks sent to me awhile back from their African Savannah collection.
I love the “grasscloth” like “solids.” I think that it will go with many other prints and solids in the stash! I don’t normally go for the animal fur prints, but I think these will go great with the bright florals I normally work with.
And here’s the best part! The grand folks at Hamilton Beach not only sent me this iron, they want to send one of you a Durathon Iron as well! (Prize will go to US addresses only please)
All you have to do to win is comment on this post. I will pick a winner sometime on April 22, Earth Day! So comment away. Let’s make this entertaining for all of us by sharing your favorite Easter/Passover/Springtime/Earthday memory, okay?
