A Demise

It is a sad, sad day. Hot & Steamy I, one of two identical irons I’ve had for YEARS, has finally died. They weren’t expensive. They didn’t develop leaks. They got hot and maintained their temperature. The auto shut off feature kicked in at a decent interval and then heated right back up.

They got their names when another quilter at a sew day exclaimed, “Wow, this iron is hot AND steamy.”  You can imagine where the conversations went from there  🙂  She went out with a sizzle….I suspected the end was coming as the plug had started getting very hot.  I hope Hot & Steamy II lives on forever.  Because, irons, even expensive ones, aren’t made like they used to be……….

  1. I’m so sorry…I had one that looked very similar for about 12 years. I figure that cost me about a dollar a year. I caved to pressure and bought a very expensive, highly rated iron which lasted about three years….back to the Sunbeams!

  2. Yes, my beautiful iron of 8 years died one day. I was aggravated and hit the sole plate on the counter which shocked it back to life! And shocked me that it worked too. but that only worked once, so the search began for a new one.

    So sad. Will there be memorial services?
