    Comments about Conair Instant Heat Styling Iron:

    This is a very good, inexpensive curling iron. It heats up very quickly and has a wide range of heat adjustments. The stand keeps it from damaging a surface where you are heating it up.

    I really appreciate the plastic webbed cover that comes with it. Allows me to cover the hot part of the iron when it is cooling.

    I have short, thick, straight hair that is difficult to curl. This iron works so well and I get an easy curl and touch up with it.

      Comments about Conair Instant Heat Styling Iron:

      the 3/4 inch barrel is a little too curly for the style I want to achieve, and the 1 & 1/4 inch too big and floppy. This size of 1 inch is perfect for straighter styles but adding volume to get the look...the heat adjustment is perfect, nice size tip to be able to hold with both hands and the turbo boost is great when you are curling over a preset style.

                          Comments about Conair Instant Heat Styling Iron:

                          I don't know who they think they're fooling claiming this iron heats up to 400 degrees. I usually set my iron between 360-75, and this is about as hot as this iron gets on the highest setting. It's alright for me because that's what I set my iron to anyway, but if you need heat don't buy this iron. Also, for some reason hair doesn't slip out of this iron as easily as other irons.

                              The Instant Heat Styling Iron reaches a max temperature of 180 degrees F, so setting 25 would reach 180 degrees F. The iron also features a "turbo heat boost" feature, which increases the barrel temperature by up to 36 degrees F.

                            Just to be clear, when traveling to Europe, you do NOT need an electrical converter, only the adapter plug, is that correct?
