This flat iron works great and is a high quality flat iron. I purchased for my mom who is a hairstylist. She only likes quality products and definitely feels that this is a high quality professional product. She said It is easy to hold onto, and it heats up pretty quick. She says that she loves it and uses it everyday. She says it feels nice and sturdy and she loves the temperature control. She got to use it on one of her clients and said the end result was beautiful and perfect. Her client really liked her hair and was impressed with how well this Flat Iron worked. Overall she is very happy with this product and would highly recommend it.
