- NanoCeramic ultra smooth surface
- Patented pulse technology (I'm not sure what that is...)
- Variable heat settings, up to 430° F, using digital display and buttons
- SUPER FAST heat up time (around 10 seconds)
- New State of the Art design. I suppose it does look cool and technological.
- Soft grip handle. I love it!
- Rounded plate edges to curl ends in or flip them out
- 1” Solid NanoCeramic plates perfect for styles of every length. Apparently the NanoCeramic plates are the newest technology in flat irons.
- 10 hour auto shut off
- On/off switch
- 8 ft. tangle-free swivel cord
- One-year warranty
- The buttons are really annoying when you are curling your hair. I keep accidentally pressing them, which changes the temperature setting. and I can't find a good place to hold it. Even though you CAN lock the temperature setting, so that the heat won't change when you accidentally press the buttons, I still find it annoying when I do.
- ONCE AGAIN, I got a defective iron. It's plates aren't parallel. Gah!
- I followed the Hot Tools temperature setting guide, and decided to set it to 370 degrees. (The guide suggests 280-330 for fine, thin hair; 330-380 for wavy, medium-textured hair; 380-430 for thick hair) Unfortunately, my curls did not even last me HALF a school day! Disappointing...
- As this flat iron heats up, not only can you smell it (though it doesn't smell as burnt as the Biosilk one), but you can also hear it. It's very strange- there are cracking sounds that let you know it's getting hotter. Weird.
- Snags hair sometimes between the plates.
Overall, if you want to buy a flat iron, I recommend buying a non-digital one, because the only difference is that these are more annoying. It's fine for straightening, but I wouldn't go anywhere especially to buy this one. 3 out of 5 stars!
