You may fall in love with this iron on your first date for its relatively cheap price ($33) and the hot guy on the box talking about his ironing experiences. 

So you take it home and give it some water (which it sometimes leaks, but you don't mind because it's just water) and one thing leads to another, and before you know it it's all over your shirt, and doing your jeans, and even touching your finest synthetics. 

And that's when you realise it doesn't love you back! 

Not one bit.

There isn't the sensual glide you were hoping for – it rudely sticks to and roughly drags over your clothing as if it's always too hot or too cold. 

And does it fulfill your deepest desire to remove life's wrinkles and creases from the fabric of your fabrics? 

No, it doesn't. 

When you ask it to, it just laughs in your face and grabs the fabric and creates additional creases instead.

The You'll Love Coles steam iron is the most hated iron we sent on dates with our triallists this millennium, with an overall score of just 19%. 

To avoid a broken heart, we suggest you search for love elsewhere.
