Panasonic Cordless Iron Review

I get a lot of review offers and I usually turn them down. But, when I got an email about trying the new Panasonic 360 Degree Freestyle Cordless Iron, I knew I needed to get my hands on one. First of all, anything with “cordless” in the title has me intrigued. I have had a cordless glue gun for years and friends, it’s life changing.

When I opened the box I was already excited with the look, it’s a pretty little thing. It comes with this case that locks when not in use.

The cordless part is genius! When you are done, the cord is retractable and all fits nicely in the case. The base of the iron plugs in when in use but the iron itself comes off of the base each time you use it.

Plug the iron in and get the heat settings just right, then press a small button on the side and the “water container” slides right off so you can take just that part to your sink. Then you just slide it right back in to place and you are ready to go.

This next thing is my favorite part. Any good sewist knows that ironing is the key to a professional looking piece! That said, I have no idea why I have been using a ten year old, $12 iron with dark stains. The iron plate itself… I am in love. It’s stainless and so smooth and I feel like a professional :)  I will put it on the record (just in case my husband reads this) I only use irons for sewing and crafts… I don’t actually iron clothing. I’m sure this Iron would be amazing for that but I don’t ever do it haha.

The only thing I don’t love is that the iron shuts off after a certain amount of idle time. I like the safety factor but when I lock myself in my craft room in the wee hours of the night I am usually sewing for a very long time. So, I found myself coming back to the iron to press a seam but it had already turned off. Thankfully it doesn’t take long for it to heat up again.

I definitely give it two thumbs up! Does anyone else use a stainless iron? I feel like I’ve moved in to a whole new world over here! Iron is available at Walmart… Thanks Panasonic :)

Light Cider… I’ll Drink to That!

We have kind of started a new Sunday routine over here… Mom’s house for swimming, food and drinks. Just so happened that last week I also had the really lucky opportunity of trying out Michelob Ultra’s newest beer – Light Cider. So you know what I brought to the festivities :) I have to be honest, I am not a huge beer drinker. I just know that I don’t like “dark” or heavy beer. If you follow me on InstaGram then you know that I’m a margarita kind of girl! But when I saw the new light cider, I figured I love apples, I like “light” and its pretty; and that is reason enough for me to try one!
I have to say, I truly liked this beer. It wasn’t too appley, it’s super light, crisp and so refreshing. When you first sip it, it has a light beer flavor then just a hint of green apple. It almost has a white whine sangria taste because the sweetness is just from the real fruit. It is also Gluten Free and because it is sweetened with Stevia, it has less calories that your typical “girl drink”. It also smells like green jolly ranchers haha. 

It was a big hit with us grown ups, my husband even had three and he is typically a dark beer drinker. My mom made a summer roast and a fresh corn salad and it was the prefect accompaniment. Speaking of my Mom, she HATES anything apple flavored and we forced her to taste it… she said, “its not as bad as I thought it would be” haha. That’s pretty good coming from someone who doesn’t like apple or sweet drinks.
My favorite part… on the box it says to enjoy straight out of the bottle or over ice… Duh, what did I do? I am an ice addict and I can’t resist a straw! I think I might have found a new summer drink, and lets be honest… my go to margaritas don’t have 120 calories!
I was thinking about what else I could do with it… You know when you put a beer in the freezer or in an ice chest and it starts to slushy? That is my favorite thing… I wonder if I could do a Granita out of this?? I have never made one but I bet it would be so good. Which favorite summer meal or activity do you think would go best with Michelob ULTRA Light Cider?
