I purchased this iron recently. This iron is difficult to use as the dial is not easy to understand and difficult to see the markings. It often wont turn on even tho the on light illuminates but the temp light does not turn on. The steam does not come out unless the steam spray or shot is pressed.
Purchased in July 2020 at The Good Guys.
Splashes water everywhere
This iron splashes so much water onto the items that I am ironing I have to hang them up to dry. I think I'll have to put this in the cupboard as a spare and buy another brand. Unlike my earlier iron the Verve 58 does not beep a warning when left on. I wish I had taken note of that brand as it served me well for many years.
Purchased in June 2018 for $108.95.
What a let down
I am so glad i checked in to see these reviews, my iron leaks, splutters and leaves great water splodges everywhere, even if I only 1/4 fill it. It is not old, but today I have decided to replace it, I cannot be bothered with it's poor performance any more, and obviously this performance is standard for this iron. Will check out other brands and avoid Sunbeam.

Having owned a Sunbeam iron for many years I had no hesitation in replacing it with another Sunbeam and purchased a Sunbeam Verve 58. After some months it started started to leak all over the clothes. I made sure it was not overfilled and the steam marker was set to match the temperature, same result. Finally I was so frustrated I wanted to chuck it out the window. Then it started to lose heat, rang Sunbeam who told me to take it back to Farmers and they would replace it. Last weekend I had it replaced and used it for the second time yesterday, guess what leaking as badly as the first one so today it is going back for good. No more Sunbeam irons for me!
Like other comments on here - this iron is terrible!
It leaks water (which is extremely hot once heated and spits it at you causing burns), it trips our electrical safety switch on a regular basis, ironed clothes come off the board showing residual creases even when ironing very slowly at top heat. It also loses heat and extends my ironing time threefold!
I've had enough and am off to the shops to buy a decent iron!
I have always been a Sunbeem girl, but am afraid you lost me with this last iron. It leaks so bad, and looses heat. I am looking for a better iron, of another brand.
Being a happy and loyal Sunbeam iron user of over 30 years naturally I replaced my dead 6/7 year old sunbeam with another Sunbeam - a no brainer...NOT!!!
What has happened to Sunbeam quality????
First I purchased a Verve 68 resilium - reviewed. Terrible first one leaked and didnt get up to temp the replacement didnt leak but ironing cottonon linen etc.. So I tried this model as the reviews were good.
Note this is Sunbeam iron no3.
It was ok, just ok. Not as good as my old dead sunbeam - just ok. I was begining to think it was me & my expe...
Questions & Answers
Does it have a narrow hand grip?
My hands are small and I can easily hold the grip. Standerd grip
The circumference of the iron handle (measuring all the way around) is 10 cm which forms a comfortable holding position when ironing.

I am an average size woman and find the grip quite comfortable. You may have to try it yourself in the shops. Goodluck !
