Best Small Irons for Sewing and Crafts
If you like to sew or do crafts, you may be tired of pulling your large iron out every time to press seams. Here is a look at the best small irons for sewing, crafts, or even just travel!
Our top pick is a little pricey but well worth it! You can also find many other options for smaller budgets.
We chose the Oliso as our top pick for a variety of reasons! It has the power of a full-size iron so it can heat up quickly and get to high temperatures. Many other small irons just don’t get as hot, and that’s a big deal breaker for many who sew or quilt.
This Oliso mini project iron also had an off switch. Nearly all the other options did not have this feature. You just have to unplug the iron to turn it off. And let’s face it, if you’re in the middle of a sewing project, you don’t want to unplug and plug back in your iron multiple times.
This project iron has a “solemate” which is like a trivet and lets you sit the iron face down. Be sure to set your iron to medium or low if it will be on the solemate for some time. Turn this solemate around and it snaps onto the iron, making it easy and safe to store with the hook and cord tether.
The Diamond Coated Ceramic Soleplate provides an even heat and smooth finish. It allows easy clean-up, should your iron need it.
You can choose between the butterscotch yellow color or the lovely pink color. Take a look at it on Amazon here.
Other top picks
The Cohotek Mini Steam Iron is tiny compared to many other small craft or travel irons. This iron has great reviews but wasn’t large enough for our sewing purposes.
The Utopia Home Steam Iron was also near the top of our list. We didn’t choose this iron because it didn’t have an off switch.
