The iron is a very important appliance that helps keep our clothes smart, crisp and wrinkle free. Unfortunately, these appliances generate a lot of heat and can be death traps, if you are not careful. One of the best ways of reducing risks is the auto-shutoff feature that is included in most modern irons. There are different auto-shutoff functions, however they all feature the same basic operation – they turn off the iron when it is left idle for some time. Some sophisticated ones even feature auto-shutoff functions that kick into gear when they are tripped or kept in awkward positions. Here are the best irons with the auto-shutoff function.
