Recommendations for irons?
I'm in dire need of a new iron- for the past while I've been using an ancient black&decker that sat in a cupboard for a decade, that I couldn't even fill with water (have to soak a cloth and lay overtop to press), has gotten several scratches and NOW, seems to be leaving stains on light fabrics. I'm starting artist-alley crafting and comissioning, so I NEED to invest in a really good, durable iron that will steam-press and iron/press just about all fabrics. However, as I've never had to buy one, I have no darn idea of what some particularly good/durable brands are, what ones are crap, and what ones are overpriced for their worth. Help me out please! As an FYI, I live in Canada but we get most USA-sold brands like black and decker, kenmore, GE, etc. I do NOT want to buy it online, shipping kills me everytime and the sooner I can get it the better.

Unless there is a 75% off sale at the Fabric store. Then you're on your own. And get the hell out of my way." <3
