Amazing straightener I have smooth wavy hair and I put the heat setting to about the middle.
My only complaint is that, compared to more expensive brands it doesn't glide very well, like you must work a bit so it moves smooth..
OTHER THAN THAT.

First off, let me say that this iron has some good qualities along with bad. I purchased this flat iron a couple of months ago and was really excited because it was so cheap. I figured it seemed like a very good flat iron because it is recommended for thick or coarse hair. I was amazed when I started using it because it didnít take long to heat up at all; the temperature being so high got my hair straight in one swipe. My hair felt weight less and shiny. This soon changed when the plates began to wear after only one month! The shine and weight less feeling was now gone, my hair looked frizzy and burnt. Also the smell it gave off was horrible; it kind of smelled like burnt rubber. I had to stop using this product because I was afraid it would damage my hair. I would not recommend this product because it is a waste of money, it is way better to invest in a more expensive one that will actually last and not damage your hair.

I just straightened my hair with the 2 inch Andis straightener and it worked amazing for my hair. At first it hurt to touch my hair because it was still hot but I gave it a couple seconds and tried again and my hair still felt as soft as it did with my curly hair. Maybe even softer! The temperature gets pretty hot a low setting so I suggest you use a heat spray like I had so it doesn't damage your hair. I would definitely buy it again, especially considering I bought it for 15 dollars at Walmart. Pretty good price for a great straightener.

I've had this flat iron for almost a year and a half now. It's my first flat iron, and until this weekend, I thought it worked great. Then I used a Chi flat iron for the first time and realized just how bad my flat iron really is. It doesn't completely straighten my hair, and I have to go over my hair several times before it's even considered to be straight. And even then, it's still poofy-looking. Not to mention the plates catch and pull my hair. If given the chance, I would NOT buy this product again.

I have the 1 inch Andis ceramic flatiron. It looks like the one pictured. This is my first flatiron and I bought it on the recommendation of a new hairstylist who suggested I might want to try flatironing my hair. Normally, my stylists suggest volumizing rather than flattening. So not being sure if flattening is something I'd really want to do, I didn't want to shell out $100 for an iron. This was rated well on Amazon and on sale for about $22. I have been very happy with it so far. I like that 1) it has various heat settings 2) it has a "lock" so you can close it while it's heating up or after turning off - no worries about tipping it over & burning yourself. 3) the cord swivels so it doesn't twist around as you are using it. I have medium texture shoulder-length hair with a big unruly wave in certain areas. I use it to flatten those areas and also to bring my hair back under control the 2nd day after washing. I actually kind of use this as a "curling iron" as well, to shape and curve my hair. Overall, I'm very pleased with it. It does not get my hair stick straight, but I think that is more of a matter of my own lack of skill & technique than a fault of the iron.

I currently have this flat iron, and it gets extremely hot to the point that I have to turn it off and straighten my hair for a while. Because of the heat protection serum I use my hair comes out extremely shiny and doesn't have the 'burnt' hair smell at all. The coating has become to come off but I've had it for the past 2 years. It's not thin enough to create curls but can do a loose wave now and then. Really cheap but spending more money will get you a way better flat iron.

PROS: Very inexpensive. Auto shut off (which is not as common in these as you would th
ink.) Heat range to choose from.
CONS: From reading these reviews, now I know why I've started to smell a burning hair smell when using (the posts here explain about the coating wearing off.) But mine has taken over six months to wear off.
ALTERNATES: I've been like Tool Science's Digital Tourmaline Styling Iron much better. The coating has lasted me a much longer time than on this one.

This is one of the best straighteners out there. It does not burn my hair like others, in the past, have. I have it set on a little above 10, because of my natural wavy hair, and it comes out stick straight. I love how my hair is silky and not frizzy from this. I love this straightener so much that after my first one broke (looked like it turned on but never heated up), I bought a second. FYI it took my first one about 3yrs to die on me. This does have an issue with the plating coming off. I never cared about it because it fades off and doesn't chip off like others do (I had one that chipped off where the spots where the plating was missing would catch my hair and pull it off my head). For $20 USD you really can't be beat.

I absolutly loved this iron while it worked. I read all the reviews and know that after about six months the ceramic coating would come off. But my ceramic coating came of after exactly 3 uses. I only straigten my hair once a week. I am AA with wavy hair. I couldn't even believe that it happened. It really did straigten my hair for three weeks. But it wasn't worth the 16 dollars because three weeks later I had to buy another. I bought the solid hot tools ceramic iron because after the experience of ceramic coated I am scared to buy another I will see how it works out.

Well I just got the 1" inch Nano Silver which is not the one pictured above so I cant really say if all these reviews are for the one I have or that one. But anyways, its not bad, nor the best. Its inbetween. Lets just say if you already have straight hair it'll work on you. My locks are straight and decided to just buy a straightner to make my hair look more polished- which this does do. I only had it on the 1st setting (out of 20 settings) and it got really hot! I didnt want to over due it and damage my hair too much so I kept it on that setting- did a great job for an inexpensive hair tool. Smooth, shiny, and natural looking. I know some girls go for the really straight broom stick hair look especially since its so in right now but I would not recommend this to someone whos looking for that look.

I decided to get this temporarily after my second Chi stopped working. It has been 6 months now and I am starting to notice that this one is not working as well as it did when I first purchased it but that was the same issue with the Chi so for $16.00 I can't complain . If you are looking for a cheap alternative then I definitely recommend this.
Update: Its been about a year now and this straightener is still working but it does a very crappy job now. My hairs frizzes when its humid or windy outside but once again for $16.00 I don't regret purchasing this.

If you are a broke college student or someone with a very low beauty budget, I suppose this flat iron will suffice--but plan on using the 5 year warranty on this after about 6 months! Like others have mentioned, after only 6 mos. of owning this iron, the "ceramic coating" is wearing off and not straightening hair like it used to. I have thick, coarse hair and now this iron leaves my hair somewhat straight, but dry and dull. In the beginning, all was fine and dandy--I thought to myself, 'pfft--CHI eat your heart out" as I was able to achieve straight, silky hair and also use it to create beachy waves or voluptuous curls...but with a $16 price tag (from Walmart), it was all too good to be true...you get what you pay for with this flat iron because the good results won't last...if I had a chance to do it all over again, I would save up for a flat iron in at least the $30 range and pay for quality that would probably last longer than the 6 months lifespan I got out of my Andis flat iron. I am sending this flat iron back to Andis for a free replacement, but I have to pay for shipping...wonder if its even worth it? Meh.

I bought this years back when it was like 13 dollars and I still have it. Although, now I have laid it to rest since I got a Conair Infinity or whatever its called. It's gonna be my backup. Its awesome other than the "ceramic" coating stuff wears off.

definitely not on par with chi or ghd, but a decent iron.

I bought this at Wal Mart (suprise, suprise) for about $15. I think it's a pretty good iron. It gets hot, but not super hot. I have thick hair that is pretty straight so I don't need it really hot. It glides over my hair perfectly except it does tend to snag the fine thinner hairs right around my ears and temples. But for the most part it leaves my hair nice and smooth and soft. I've had it since Jan and it still works fine but I only use it about once a week. I might buy it again, but I want to try to find a different one that won't snag my hair.

A wonderful iron-until the ceramic coating wears off.Of course it *is* only $15, lol...I just bought another one because I don't really have the money for a real one yet, but my old one was worthless after a few months when the coating wore off.It's one of those 'you get what you pay for' deals.By all mean pick one up if you're in a bind & need something cheap for a couple months, though.It does the trick while it lasts.

This is a great straightner, it has so many selections. It's ceramic, and it heats up in 1 minute...no joke
and it was only $15 at Wal-mart

I've been using this for a few years now. While I no longer straighten my hair anywhere close to everyday, this straightener never lets me down. It straightens pretty well if I let my hair air dry and then straighten it, but usually I blowdry and then straighten. It only takes me about 10 minutes (I have VERY THICK, shoulder length hair) and my hair stays straight all day. It's also easy to clean with a warm washcloth if the ceramic surface ever gets build up on it.

I got this in a swap and don't like it. I have a Chi Turbo and I got this just to put in my guest bathroom. It will straighten my hair but it takes a few passes and it tugs at my hair and doesn't glide through easily. It also makes my hair feel dry. Horrible flat iron.

After reading reviews on MUA I purchased this flat iron from Amazon.com. I have medium length, wavy, coarse, thick hair and got excellent results from this iron. The cons? It does take more than one pass and the ceramic coating starts to wear off after a few months. Also I just noticed yesterday that part of the plastic cover on the temperature control broke so I should probably replace it before I burn the house down, ha ha. For the low price of $15.00 though.. I'll be ordering at least 3 so I can be sure to always have a back up!
EDIT: I just bought my 2nd Andis flat iron.. I have used it about 3 times and the ceramic coating has already started to wear off. Even though I only paid $20 for it and it worked very well (for those 3 times), it's definitely not worth it! I'm now searching reviews for a high quality model. I have thick, wavy, medium length hair that hates humidity and am no longer messing around with cheap flat irons!!
