If you want our recommendation

These are our top picks for steam irons, and they all excel at pulling out wrinkles and pressing your clothes into perfection. My favorite is the Rowenta Focus or its 35 minutes of steam power, even distribution of heat and moisture, and lightweight design.

If you need something a bit more portable, I lean toward the Steamfast Mini, my favorite travel system. Backed by a two-year warranty, this tiny steam iron heats up quickly and tackles even the most crumpled clothes with ease. The addition of dual voltage in a suitcase-friendly design makes this a natural choice for world travelers.
