(cheeky) the point of ceramic is so that it doesn't stick. Must be some seriously wrong heat settings for stuff to stick. (lol)
My mrs went through 3 £50 irons in a year with her highest is best mindset, I got here this below and its still going after 2 years and works great.
she agrees with all your comment but still doesn't want one XD
she thinks their a nightmare, once something sticks (easily happens) it cannot be cleaned? so she says!
Shes probably putting the setting too high for everything like my mrs and turning it black then it starts sticking to everything. Then my mrs blames the iron and doesn't like the fact i know more about ironing (lol) Ceramic is much better if you put the setting dial to the type of material you're ironing
