The water container is attached to a wall and then the hose needs to hang from the ceiling or a high point. Iron has a powerful burst of steam, and it does not leak. Iron weight is 4.5 pounds.
Great iron. I bought it specifically for my sewing room, and LOVE the fact that it stays on all the time. Only one item that is less than ideal: one is supposed to turn off the water supply after each use, since the water bottle has to be hung ideally 36" above the iron, this is somewhat annoying for me, have to climb on a stool each time. I think I might add a valve at the base to avoid this, but it would be nice if it came with a shutoff also at the iron connection.
Iron works wonderfully, I have never enjoyed ironing so much. I can turn to it when I need it and not have to wait for it to heat up, and the big water reservoir is fantastic. I have had it for about two months and still have 2/3 of the bottle filled up.
Angela Wolf Review:
My all time favorite iron is the Hot Steam SGB-600 and I can’t believe how long I went without splurging on such a reasonably priced powerhouse steam iron. This iron plugs into a standard outlet (make sure to check that when researching commercial steam irons) and has a water container that holds almost an entire gallon of distilled water. The water container is attached to a wall and then the hose needs to hang from the ceiling or a high point. The iron came with the rubber mat, which is nice! I added the Iron Shoe which allows you press ANYTHING and it won’t leave shiny marks – even on cheap satin and poly!
This iron has a powerful burst of steam and it DOES NOT leak, yeah! Have you ever ruined fabric from a leaky iron? I have had this iron for quite a while and have never had as much as a drop.
Can anyone tell me which iron shoe will fit this iron? I would like to order another one.
For anyone looking to buy it, I just want to say that I've had this iron for a long time and it's perfect, I highly recommend it!!
I bought this iron about two years ago & for the most part it's been quite the good iron. It spits on rare occasions but I've no other issues with it here in my alterations shop.
This iron is a tremendous improvement over the household ones I have used. It produces a lot of steam. The solenoid steam valve is a big improvement over the button pumps found on internal reservoir irons.
