Bottom Line

With the Remington Style Purple 1" Digital Heat Ceramic Flat Iron, you get an effective, easy to use and fairly safe flat iron. Many users say this iron works just as well as brands like CHI. However, some users say it doesn't leave hair feeling as smooth and silky.

Performance

Zero to 410 degrees Fahrenheit in one minute flat. Almost all users agree that the Remington Style Purple 1" Digital Heat Ceramic Flat Iron is a great value. Users say it heats up in about a minute, and they like the convenience of its digital display with adjustable temperatures up to 410 degrees Fahrenheit. Some complain that the temperature can't be set very low, so it's easy to damage fine hair. Most users also tack on the qualifier that this iron is great for the price. Few specify what exactly is lacking, though, and give the iron high marks. There are no professional reviews available for this iron.

Safety

Lacks low temperature settings. There are very few safety concerns mentioned in reviews of this flat iron. The iron has a swivel cord that users report works well. It also has a hinge lock for easier storage. There are no reports of burns to skin; however, several users point out that the lack of low temperature settings can cause hair scorching.
