The Maxiglide MX-597 One Step Hair Straightening Iron is cheaper than the Corioliss and it also comes with steam burst technology. This Maxiglide flat iron comes with two sets of ceramic plates; the first set is the usual smooth ceramic plates found on most flat irons and the second set of plates has small teeth like a comb which help to detangle hair and brush it as the same time. Maxiglide claim that just as you use bursts of steam when ironing out creases in your clothes so too you use steam to straighten out stubborn curly hair. This sounds great but there are some minus points with the Maxiglide wet to dry flat iron. First off the appliance has a water reservoir for the steam which means that the unit is a little heaver and bulky making it difficult for some to use. Also the plates are 4 inches wide making it a little unwieldy. Finally some have complained that the detangling pins of the ceramic plates far from helping to straighten hair but actually make the task harder to accomplish. But despite these complaints many find the Maxiglide MX-597 One Step flat iron an excellent hair straightener.
