Pros:auto shut-off, retractable cord, five settings

Cons:detachable tank, price

The Bottom Line:

If you are looking for a new iron, I would recommend the Panasonic NI-C78SR Iron with Auto Shut-off.



I am not sure why I purchased an iron because I don’t iron. I buy clothes that don’t need to be ironed but I still felt the need to purchase an iron. On Black Friday I picked up a Panasonic NI-C78SR Iron with Auto Shut-off for what I thought was a good price. Actually I did want an iron so I would have it if I ever needed one. I hate when I get something out to wear and it is all wrinkled. An iron is nice to have on hand. I will admit since I’ve had my iron I have only used it about four times.


The Panasonic Iron is a 1200 watt iron with a stainless steel curved nonstick plate. There are five fabric settings, a push button spray mist, a jet of steam, vertical stream option, an electronic sensor with a three way auto shut off and a self-cleaning function. The Panasonic Iron also has a detachable water tank, an anti-calcium system and a push button retractable cord.  The iron is white and green and measures 10 2/5” x 4 2/7” x 5 2/7”.  The iron does have some weight to it but I would not call it heavy.


The features that interested me in this particular iron was the auto shut off, the five settings and the retractable cord. An auto shut off is important to me so in case I would forget to turn the iron off it will automatically shut off. I have never tested to see if this works because I have never intentionally left the iron on but it’s nice to know it has this feature. The iron will automatically shut off after 10 minutes of sitting upright. If the iron would fall over or be sitting on its plate it will turn off in one minute.


The NI-C78SR temperature ranges from 176 to 392 degrees. I love that it has a reference chart on the iron base with fabrics and what temperature you should iron at. For someone like me that rarely irons, this is important as I have no clue how hot I should have the iron for any type of fabric.


I also like that the Panasonic Iron can be used vertically. You just push a button and you can use the iron to steam your curtains or an item on a hanger.


The retractable cord is nice on the Panasonic Iron as I no longer have to worry about wrapping the cord. I would always wrap up the cord and it would never stay. This made it difficult to store my older iron. With the Panasonic Iron I do not have this problem. With just a push of a button, the cord retracts into the iron.


I also like the jet of stream function which helps in getting out even the toughest wrinkles. You can use the regular steam function, light steam option or no steam depending on the job.


The water tank on the Panasonic NI-C78SR Iron is green, see through and detachable. It is easy to detach and fill but I do worry that this could fail at some point. I didn’t really need a detachable tank. I have no problem pouring water directly into an iron.


Even though I have had my Panasonic NI-C78SR Iron for some time I have only used it four times so I cannot attest to how this would work if you used it on a daily basis. For the occasional job, the Panasonic Iron fills my needs.


I purchased the Panasonic NI-C78SR Iron with Auto Shut-off on sale on Black Friday for $25.00. I do see they still sell it but regular price is $50.00. I guess since I don’t iron much that seems like a lot of money for an iron that I rarely use. I don’t think I would have paid full price for the iron. Not because it doesn’t work or anything but I just think that is too much money for something that I use about two times a year.


The Panasonic NI-C78SR Iron with Auto Shut-off would make a nice gift for a newlywed or as a housewarming gift.  An iron might not be something someone thinks about buying for themselves until they need one.


With my limited use of the Panasonic NI-C78SR Iron I do like it and am glad I purchased it. It’s nice to have an iron when I need one.


If you are looking for a new iron, I would recommend the Panasonic NI-C78SR Iron with Auto Shut-off.
