Has anyone bought a dry iron recently? Mine has just packed up and I am unable to find a known make of dry iron only - I don't want steam. Some are named in reviews but disappear when I try to follow the link. I don't really want to buy on ebay. Many thanks for any help.

buy a steam iron and don't use the steam settings?
Am I missing something?

If you don't put water into a steam iron, is that not the same?

Thanks for the replies. A steam iron has holes in the baseplate - even if no water is used. Thanks The Winner for the review - I have found several reviews but haven't seen this one before. I'll see if any are still available. Many thanks everyone.
Be very wary of dry irons sold on eBay, even the ones branded Philips may be intended for the Indian market, with Indian plugs. I am not sure if they are safe, especially with UK wiring

Thanks - yes I was going to avoid ebay. None of the ones mentioned in the review are available in the UK - and the one that is available from abroad costs hundreds to deliver! I guess I'll have to live with unironed clothes!!!
Just don't put water in a steam iron. I do it all the time
Amazon has a Corel X on steam iron for £15
Why should unused holes in the plate stop you ironing?

I know there are loads of steam irons but I particularly want a DRY iron - and they seem to be obsolete in the UK now.
I’ve never heard of a dry iron! Lol
Here's one with a flat plate from Amazon

Snowball - you must be young - they were the only irons available before steam irons were invented! It's simply an iron without water.
I have a vintage one given to me when I left home. I keep it for old times sake but I never use it. Nor do I use the modern one come to that!

Maydup - I have looked at that one and it seems to be the only one available. One downside is that some of the reviews say that it fused all the electrics in their house! That might not be the iron's fault - it could be that their wiring was not very good!
My mother heated up her iron on a gas ring as we didn't have electricity. Everything turned out perfectly, just a little bit of spittle needed to see if it was hot enough.
have a look for travel irons. Bought one many years ago, the handle folded over the base, cable length was adequate and it ironed quite nicely albeit quite light.
I'm still baffled.
mjulian simply wants an iron with a solid sole plate.
