The Best Irons

Real Simple

Recently over at Real Simple, they've been busy testing irons. It's a task that someone had to do and I'm sure glad it wasn't me! They put 40 major brands and irons to the test and there were some definite favorites in the bunch. Want to see if your iron made the cut?

Irons are like shoes. No really, they are! You wouldn't go jogging in your Jimmy Choo's and you certainly wouldn't go ballroom dancing in a pair of Nike Dunks. Irons are the same way in the sense that you need to find the pair that fits your needs.

While some parents might be worried about an iron toppling over on their little ones, others are looking for ones that boast great steam or the inability to scorch their clothes (because we all know how easily it is to get distracted while watching Modern Family). Real Simple has named several irons "the best" in specific categories to help you find the perfect iron for your family.

Check out the irons pictured above (which are all winners) and the rest of their super star line up over at Real Simple. Even if you hate the chore of ironing, having a good one will make all the difference in the world to how quickly and efficiently the task will go!
