First off is its weight. As you might expect with a flat iron with 4 inch plates it isnt light; it weighs in at over 12 lbs! So even with an ergonomically designed handle the Maxiglide steam flat iron will be too heavy or unwieldy for some to use comfortably. Some complain that the special steam channels on the plates tend to clog up unless you meticulously clean it after use. Whilst this is a fair point it is probably true for all steam flat irons. Without doubt the biggest drawback of the Maxiglide steam flat iron is its price. You can expect to pay nearly twice what you would pay for either the Andis of Hot Tools flat iron. This is a major consideration. You have to ask yourself whether its benefits are justified by its price. The Maxiglide is a very popular flat iron. Other manufacturers have started making steam burst flat irons but the Maxiglide remains the best steam flat iron on the market but do your own homework and then decide which one is best for you. One final thing about the Maxiglide steam iron which gives it the edge over the Hot Tools or Andis flat iron: you can buy the Maxiglide Hair Straightener Value Pack and amongst other things you get a DVD showing you exactly how to use the steam iron.
