Most Helpful Positive Review Good product but not smooth
I have difficulty hair (fine but very thick, long, and frizzy with some coarse hair too). This was my first Croc flat iron. I ended up returning it. The flat iron did not glide smoothly along my hair. That was the biggest drawback. It may have been because of my hair type and/or the thermal protectant I used. There weren't many heat settings too (only 4-5, I don't remember). I like being able to set a more specific heat setting. There are some nice things about this iron. I like the shape of it (it really is more "ergonomic"). It's also light weight, which makes it easy to maneuver. The iron heats up quickly. It seems to be well-made. I like the longer plates, which helped me straighten more hair at once.
Most Helpful Critical Review Do Not Waste Your Money
Let me start by saying I have used Croc's classic 1.5" flat iron for over 5 years. My last one took its final drop off my bathroom counter to the point of no return. When I saw that this flat iron- by the same brand- was $20 cheaper I decided to buy it and save a little money because I assumed it couldn't be much different, but I was totally wrong. I have thick, coarse hair which smoothed out easily with my last flat iron. With this one, I had to go over each section 5 times and it still wouldn't be completely straight or smooth. It seems as if the plates are completely different from the original model, and I would compare the quality to any cheap flat iron.
Bottom line, if you are going to spend the money on a nice flat iron just go ahead and purchase the Croc black titanium flat iron. It works 10 times better than this one and is worth the extra money.

I actually liked this product only on my bangs. The rest of my hair took forever to straighten. I have the flat iron from Sally's (tool science) and works way better then this one and half the price. I purchased this when it was on sale for 60 and in my opinion its not even worth that much. It's pretty though.
Worked great for one day
Sandra from TX
I purchased this item after a influencer raved about how she has had her for 5+ years. I used it once & loved it. My hair is very thick & long. This flat iron turned my hair flat & shiny in mins. I'm just said after that one use it no longer is heating. I'm hoping to get it replaced & give it another try.
Not for me
Tiff Kay from Winchester, VA
I was so excited to order this flat iron after watching so many videos on Instagram and YouTube. However, I was extremely disappointed and let down by the performance once I received that period I am mixed so I have really thick curly Hair. I was really disappointed and didn't get that hide and when I was trying to straighten it I had to run the flatter and over pieces of hair multiple times. I will be returning this item.
I don't recommend

After six months it stop heating .
Samam from VA
It looks nice with rode gold and black, light weight, heats fast, Different heat sitting and overall works good. But l had to pass it multiple times to strip my textured thick hair but I didn't use the highest heat sitting. It left my hair shiny.
NicQ from Hampton VA
I was worried about ordering this because of the mixed reviews. I used to have a Chi and liked it a ton. I got this half off for the hair deal month. I do not regret it! This is a great straightener.

It's great for curly heads

I'm 36 and this is absolutely my favorite flat iron I have ever used!
Not the best croc product
Mexico mama from San Diego ca
The flat iron is lightweight which is nice. But the power/temperature control button is right where you hold on so you're constantly turning it off or changing the temp while trying to use it.
Favorite flat iron!

I love the different heat setting and automatic shut off! It works great for my wavy hair!
Jess from Tx
This is one by far best straightener have gotten. I have been loyal to my Chi for so many years but was tired replacing it every 5 yrs. got this when was on sale and decided give it a try even though I did read the mixed reviews wanted to give it a chance. Let me tell you this straightener does is job leaving hair straight and silky(have thick and wavy hair). The plates meets very well the towards the tips of you hair. Not like their 1" straightener that the plates don't meet. But this one you can play with it leaving the tips kinda curl. I got so many compliments when my hair is straight. Also you can handle the temperature setting.
Didn't work for me
Eleana from CA
I wanted to find a curling iron that could curl my hair as well has straighten. This product didn't do either for me. But it might just because of the hair that I have. I tried to wrap my hair around the iron and pull down. didn't work it just stayed snug as I was tugging trying to pull it down. I gave up on that. I started to see how it would straighten. It didn't work for my hair either. f
Perfect! Great for my thin hair!
Katie from Michigan
I found my new straightener! I have naturally straight (but very frizzy!), long, and very thin/fragile hair. This flat iron grips my thin hair with ease without any pull or snagging. I use the "medium" setting and am able to straighten quickly with one pass through. It still looks, feels and acts like a 1 inch flat iron. The design itself it very comfortable to hold. Previously, I used Rusk's Heat Freak and tried but returned a BaByliss Pro due to not being able to fully clamp down on my thin hair and because it pulled my hair out.
Kels from NY
This straighter is elite. When I get ready with my friends they always want to use the "magic" straightener. My sister is a hair dresser and she will steal mine to use instead of her CHI. It makes your hair so soft and leaves a glossy finish!! 10/10 highly recommend
Cris from Texas
So I got this one on sale and with the point I had I payed nothing for it (basically free) so I wanted to try this brand cause my last flat iron was not working very well. I have a bleached chunk of hair so it's not the silkiest but with the low seating it feels so nice and it makes it straight. I have thick long wavy (once curly) frizzy hair so even when im not doing much to my hair I need to straighten around my head because of my hair and the humidity. This flat iron is worth it even though how I said im basically got it free but I will be purchasing again when needed. Side note: I've dropped it several times already and it hasn't broken sooo that's good.
HORRIBLE! Don't waste your money...
Shan Shan from Madison, AL
I got this from my husband for Christmas. He said a sales associate recommended it to him!! I tried to make it work but it just pulled at my hair and I had to run my hair through it 3-4 times to get it even halfway straight and smooth out the frizz.
BEST FLAT IRON IN THE GAME
Gabby from Allentown
I have used a Chi for years and noticed that my hair at the end wasn't satisfied. I bought this today and I tried and all I can say is WOW it's like I walked right out of a salon. The price is worth it with the amount of happiness I'm in after the work is done. I'm glad I bought this I just saved so much money going to a salon every two weeks. THANK YOU CROC
Total Rip Off
KC from Des Moines, IA
Bought it while on sale online for 40% off. When it arrived, I put in with my other styling tools and threw away the box (which showed no signs of damage). A few days later, went to plug it in and use it and it won't power up. Nothing. Tried several different outlets, went over the directions and still no power. Can't return it without original packaging so wasted money on a completely inoperable product.
Better than a chi!
Mannarasauce from Winter springs, fl
I had a cheap flat iron for years, decided to by a china few years back and honestly that was worse than my OG iron. I heard many wonderful things about croc and I'm obsessed amazing iron! Doesn't leave your hair frizzy or flat.
Favorite Iron to Date
JoJo from Orlando
My stylist uses a Croc and highly recommended. So I finally took the leap, I have used Chi for years. I am loving this flat iron better than any I've had so far. It works amazing. It definitely feels different while using it on your hair. It glides smooth yet there feels like constant tension.
My hair feels softer after using it.
The only thing I don't like is as far as I can tell there is no temp ready indicator, there are 4 pre sets and you choose which setting and then basically just have to wait a bit and assume it's where I want it. Am I missing something??
Sleek and shiny
LadybugLiz from WA
Bought this one over the classic because while in store, it looked like all of the classics had been used and brought back and were scratched up. I read reviews and hoped for the best. This does not disappoint! Now I have never used the classic so I cant compare, but this one seems to do the trick nicely! I usually have VERY frizzy hair after trying to straighten. I usually have to try and put a lot of product in my hair. Not for this! I just used a thermal spray beforehand, and voila! I have never gotten such good results at home.

I am so happy with this straightener. My hair dresser has been telling me to get one for years and I wish I would've listened sooner. My hair already feels so much smoother and less damaged.
Peggy from Philadelphia
I typically read reviews before I purchase anything and these reviews were mixed! For some reason I wanted to try this even with those negative reviews. I LOVE this flat iron. Heats up fast and glides through hair. Also leaves your hair feeling healthy and looking shiny. It also has a unique grip compared to other irons I used. I was sick of my T3 iron because I wasn't getting the results I wanted. Definitely recommend this iron!!
The best straightener I've ever owned!!
iamsam from IN
LOVE LOVE LOVE this straightener! I've slways purchased expensive straighteners from my stylist over the years that all worked well ...However, none compare to this gem. It has multiple heat settings (I like it verrrrry hot) and glides right through the hair. My hair always looks smooth and has a beautiful shine that lasts for 2 days. I think it is fantastic And I will buy again.
I need another 1 my Daughter took mine over.
MartyRGV from SB
Love it and I need another one just like this one.
My older flat iron is a hot tool.
