This past week at my guild retreat I found out something that I didn’t know…..
Irons come in different wattages!!
This came about because I was using a no-steam iron and was amazed at how flat the scrap blocks were…..
I also liked using a dry iron rather than adding steam to the fabrics and felt as if they were less distorted.
Come to find out, the iron was 40-plus years old and was a 1700 watt iron.
As we talked about this among ourselves, someone mentioned that irons came in different wattages. As I did more research, I found out that higher watt irons heat up faster and get hotter!!
I checked my irons when I got home and found that they were both 1500 watt irons.
I have been looking online to see how high I could go, and found one at 2000 watts but it has no reiews so that is a red-flag to me.
Next I found several at 1800 watts. The two highest rated are both brands that I have never heard of and are not super expensive ($30 – $40).
What would you do????
Do you have a favorite iron??
Please give me any advice that you can!!!!
