Problem with water level
Generally pleased with the iron so far except for the fact that you cannot see how much water is in the tank due to tge dark colour. Constructive criticism only hopefully can be rectified for future models.

Love this travel iron! Powerful shot of steam, light, heats quickly
This is just a great little iron. Handy to take if you're travelling, but great to use at home as well. Small, light, heats very quickly. Only draws 750W so you don't have to worry about what else is plugged in. Surprisingly powerful shot of steam. Fits into small corners when you iron, and your hand never gets tired because it weighs so little. Only downside is that you need to keep refilling with water if you use for an extended time.
Leaks , disappointed wish id read the reviews first
Iron leaks water, which is really annoying ive had to remove all the water and use it as a dry iron . It is lightweight and fairly easy to manover , this was not the cheapest Iron when we brought it but ivw owed it for 12mths and everytime i use it o wish i had brought a different one

Don’t buy dark purple
Iron works fine but you can’t see the water level AT ALL you have to jiggle it and hold it up to bright light to see the water level which makes it annoying... and bad design so I would give it 1 star but it does work. The dark purple plastic is too hard to see through. They should have put a bright bobble in the tank to fix the problem then it would be 5 stars.
As per previous reviewer, other functions work well but the hollow on the sole plate catches on all edges so that I had to use the bottom part of the iron in reverse fashion. Ironing became very frustrating. Made a hasty purchase as it was half price on sale. I would not recommend this iron and unfortunately am going to buy a replacement.

it is okay
I do not usually use this iron so I really got not much comment to it, the weight of it is okay, even my 12 years old daughter can be able to handle this, all of my shirt after ironing has become very straight and it lasts for a long time as well. However, the cord is a bit short and it's not long enough when I am using it.

Not as good as previous Sunbeam irons.
The iron does a great job of the ironing, is quick to heat up and I like the shut off function. I don’t even fill the iron to the level marked and water still runs from the tank along the handle and makes my hand wet. Water also comes out of the sole plate and marks the clothes. Coloured irons look nice but makes it hard to see the water level. The bad points outweigh the good.
Catches on corners
Ironing functions and steam functions are fine and I like that it turns itself off, but...
The hollow on the sole plate for ironing over buttons is terrible. Catches on corners of collars and irons in crumples which are very difficult to iron out again. I wouldn't buy one again.
What a great little iron
Bought this iron because we were travelling to China and knew the hotels wouldn’t provide irons. What a little beauty........ a really good buy @ $29.00. Very small and light weight, has shot of steam, non stick sole plate and dual voltage selector. Easy to pack and has all the features a large expensive iron would have. So happy to have discovered it. Ironing in China was a breeze.
Trouble after 12 months
Gave problems with electrics in two different houses, would trip out the leakage detector trip switch every now and then. It started to leak after about 18 months, and finally refused to work at all. Took it apart, the water had completely corroded a connector. Sunbeam used to be a reputable brand.
Sunbeam Pro Steam A good iron
I purchased this iron from KMART the other day and it runs really well. Great amount of steam, heats up well, and does a good job. I would recommend it, but it is a little on the expensive side compared to other irons on the market. The iron has a teflon coating so it doesn't stick to delicate clothes.
Great time saver
This iron generates a lot of steam and is a great time waver, I can go through my clothes in half the time using this powerful stem generator. The wrinkles glide away and my clothes look wrinkle free and are gentle on the texture. The power cord is long enough and is not in the way when ironing.
Years of good service
This has put in years of service at out place. never had the slightest issue. It warms up and keeps a nice stable temperature. Works just as well for cotton as it does for poly. Steam is nice too. No worries at all. The bottom plate hasn't accumulated too much discoloration - still works perfectly
A pleasure to use
The iron is lightweight and glides through my clothes with ease, nothing sticks to the sole plate and it is as new as the first day I use it. The cord is long enough not to be a nuisance when using it. I would recommend this iron, it is a pleasure to use.
Iron is not a daily use machine so I bought a relative cheap one, it works well as the heat up time is fast, it’s not that heavy which is easy to handle, it glinds smoothly with a great temperature, also the cord is quite long which is much more convenient but it’s a little bit difficult to iron denim
I find this to be fine for cotton mostly but not so great for natural and delicate fibers unfortunately. It is quite well made though for the price and does have heat up nice and quickly. If you’re looking for an affordable iron then this is a good option I think.
This iron is perfect for me as it has the auto turning off system which is suitable for people as lazy as me, i do not usually use an i iron unless i am going to places that require me to wear a shirt, it’s easy to use and heats up quickly
The price is also resonable and the size is perfect
Heats up quickly
My iron was broken last month so I bought this one and this is actually quite good, as it heats up quickly (main point**) and there’s nothing to complain, everything is fine for me as im not an expert of iron, the weight is light and the price us reasonable, never used this brand before, will try more product of this brand later on
The only thing that i do not like about this iron is the colour:) as i do not like that:))

Questions & Answers
My iron has black specs that come out of it when I use the steam. I have self cleaned it numerous times and it still happens. Why is this happening? The iron is only 1 year old.
Hello Dan D.
When you say you have self cleaned would that mean that you have used an Iron Cleaner?
Normal tap water contains minerals such as calcium and magnesium which build up inside the steam chamber of your iron, resulting in poor steam performance and staining of garments. Periodic use of Iron Cleaner will remove these deposits to prolong the life of your iron. You can find our SR0300 Iron Cleaner 250ml at all major retailers.
How do you clean and flush the water tank on a SR4110 Pro Steam iron?
Hi Graham G.
Thank you for contacting Sunbeam. I note there aren't any clear instructions in the booklet! I will be passing that onto our product manager. We suggest pouring in a cap full of liquid descaling solution into the water tank and squirt it through the iron by pressing both buttons . Kind regards, Sunbeam
Our sunbeam pro glide leaks water on the clothes being ironed. The machine makes steam but leaks water through the steam holes on the clothes and leaves the ironing board wet. What can we do?
