I use it on my husbands collared shirts, it’s not exactly the same results as ironing, more like 85 to 90% the same, which is enough result for me to give up ironing. I’m sure as I learn to use it better I will even get better results (it’s already getting better and it’s been only one month) point is that made me happy that I didn’t get the J-2000 as it would have been definitely too weak to give similar result.
the only thing I didn’t read reviews about is whether to get the iron or the metal head. So after talking with the company I chose the metal one as it is more durable.. well that was a bad choice!
the metal handle is extremely heavy and it gets really hot. it’s so hard to handle and I feel that it’s an accident waiting to happen. In order to get good results and prevent condensation in the hose, I hang the clothes up over the door. after steaming few pieces I get so tired and I stop for a break. I was at a store the other day and they had the J4000 with a plastic head and I asked to try it:
– it’s much much lighter
-it’s much easier to handle
– it doesn’t heat up and feels much safer
the only way for the head to break is if it’s dropped real hard on the floor, I can’t see how I could loose control over the plastic one while with the metal one I throw it every time I feel the heat from the metal and I get scared!
it will cost me 71 dollars to get the plastic one, that’s expensive and I wish I went with it from the beginning. However, it is worth it because I know that with it this steamer would be perfect.
if you are to order the head without the hose you’d have to cut the hose that you have and connect that had which can be dangerous and is not recommended!
I haven’t used the iron for a month and I don’t see me using it again in the future
I just love my Jiffy
