Featured Tool: Mighty Travel Iron by Dritz, Item # 82350
Connecting Threads Reviewer: Jamila
What is this tool typically used for?
Ironing on the go.
What were your initial thoughts?
That it is small, portable and probably great for travel. I like that it has a steam function and comes with a travel pouch.
How did you use it?
I used it on small projects and travel ironing.
How did using it go?
It worked best on small surfaces. The steam function actually lasted for quite a bit. It got hot very quickly and ironed really well. I had to be careful with filling it – otherwise it will overflow and leak. Cord sometimes gets in the way of ironing, so best for smaller projects or quick ironing.
How long did it take you to learn how to use it?
If you’ve used an iron, you can use this. So it was pretty quick to pick up and use.
What did you like best? Least?
The travel pouch and the steam function. The cord could be longer.
Why do you NEED it?
Since I travel with projects, it is nice to be able to press with steam. And if I work on small projects, I don’t have to use such a big iron.
Who would appreciate the Mighty Travel Iron most?
These are perfect for:
- Beginner, intermediate, and expert quilters
