This is the summary of consumer reviews for Panasonic NI-E200T U-Shape Titanium Soleplate Steam-Dry Iron. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.30 stars, and the price range is $17.96-$30.85.
The Panasonic NI-E200T (blue) is constructed using titanium coated non-stick U-shape soleplate and molded plastic iron handle. The unique curved shaped steam-dry iron with circulating steam concentrates pressure at the center of the iron, instead of tip for lesser snagging and minimal wrinkling. It comes with a built-in large, see through, water reservoir with a capacity of 7.1 ounces. The push button spray water mist directs extra moisture as and when needed. It has 3 steam setting options – high for heavier fabrics, low for touch-ups and dry for no steam output. The temperature ready indicator light displays whether the temperature setting is on or off. This iron has 5 fabric settings to choose from and a long 360 degree rotatable cord. The easy to use fixed dial temperature control with rotating indicator maintains the selected temperature accurately.
There are two more colors – green and purple, which have additional features like retractable cord and/or 3-way protection which means the iron auto-shuts off if unmoved for 10 minutes when left in upright position and in 1 minute if left on its plate or tipped on side. It is advisable to read the features thoroughly based on the color selected; different colors mean completely different features.
However, the blue colored iron lacks the retractable cord feature which can be handy due to its long cord. Some users also faced leaking of water and at times some fabric sticks to the soleplate.
Overall, the Panasonic NI-E200T (Blue) U-Shape Titanium Soleplate Steam-Dry Iron is a basic, light weight, compact and good looking iron at an affordable price. The iron produces steam faster and heats up quickly than other conventional irons providing smooth and comfortable ironing experience. It is best for home use or taking to college dorm.
