When choosing a safe and durable electric iron, pay attention to the following points.
*Consider the load capacity of household electricity meters. If the household electricity meter is 1.5A or 2.0A, the power of the electric iron should exceed 500W. Otherwise, it is easy to cause accidents and affect the simultaneous use of other home appliances.
*You should buy an electric iron with rubber insulated textile flexible cords, and do not buy plastic or PVC flexible cords. Because this kind of wire is easy to be burned by the hot bottom plate and cause electric shock. At the same time, the cross-sectional area of the purchased iron power cord must be above 0.75mm, and the plug rating must be above 10A.
*To do electrical safety performance inspection. When purchasing, power on the iron and check for short circuits or open circuits. At the same time, touch the metal parts of the iron shell with a test pencil or the back of your hand. If the neon bubble of the test pen does not flicker or the back of your hand does not feel tingling, it means that the iron is relatively safe. * Choose the appearance. Hold the handle lightly to see if it is comfortable, check the bottom plate for scratches, rust spots, and peeling. The gear positions of the buttons and knobs must be clear. Pick up the electric iron and shake it gently, there should be no loose or abnormal noise
