I try to find one with the highest wattage. For years I used an OLD, and I mean OLD, iron that was my moms. It was the best iron ever. It got so hot and had great steam. Then it died, but it was over 50 years old. LOL
And let's don't even get started on glue guns. I probably have 10 of them and don't like any of them.
For glue guns the only one that I think is great is Alienes ultimate glue gun. It gets hot enough to make the glue really stick well.

My husband is ordering me the singer expert finish iron after much research. 1700 watts and happy owners. Its one of my Christmas presents but I get to use it when it gets here since I need it to finish some Christmas sewing.

Thanks for your input ladies!
