T-fal Spring Cleaning “Selfie” Photo Contest + One Reader Wins a T-fal Ultraglide Iron!




I admit, ironing is my least favorite thing to do.  But believe it or not, I spend a good amount of time each week to iron my family’s clothes because I just hate seeing wrinkled clothes on them and on myself. So for me, a good electric iron with great features to make my ironing a breeze is essential!

I have been searching for a new electric iron so I was so thrilled to receive the new T-fal FV4495 Black Ultraglide Iron for my review. I did some research on this product and I was glad to know it’s ranked #1 in “glideability” and speed in lab tests against the top 20 competitors. I really like the unique ceramic soleplate with a pointed tip that easily works around buttons, pleats and seams when I iron, and it’s also scratch resistant for the easiest and fastest ironing. So whether you’re an expert at ironing or can’t stand the thought of it, the T-fal FV4495 Black Ultraglide Iron is the perfect iron for you!

    My favorite feature is the NEW anti-scale system helps recollecting calcium from hard water – for long lasting performances. I have never owned a T-FAl Iron. Nor do I know how to iron… but I need one and will learn. LoL. I look for the cord being out of the way and the indicator light shutting off when it is ready. That would be important for me, being a “beginner.”

    When shopping for a new iron, I look for a water reservoir that does’t leak, a variety of fabric settings, an easy glide plate, a long swivel cord, and power shot steaming. I also like an iron with a safety feature such as turning itself off after a period of time.
