I don't iron a lot, but when I do I want a good sturdy one with a good pad. Any recommendations for top brands, models and where to buy them?

Personally, the ironing board is the least important...a good pad and a great iron, with distilled water, are where it's at! I have a Rowenta -- http://www.williams-sonoma.com/produ...re%7Chkglndirn -- and swear by it.

I saw it on the WS on-line store. Looks good. I would like to hear from a owner. Anyone have one or another one that think is the best?

(I see that it says "no gift wrapping" Can you imaging a guy buying this as a gift for his wife? I imagin no nookie for the rest of his married life

I have a great iron and need a solid, folding ironing board and deluxe pad.

fyi: it's much less the board than it is the iron.

Could easily be on a wedding gift registry though, eh? Not a very inspirational present but may be necessary for a couple starting out.

Is a vacuum board really that important for a typical home user?

A nice vented board is great for pants, but for shirts I actually prefer a more heavily padded board. I also prefer ironing boards that dont have those attachments to hold the iron because I use the back end (square end) for shirts.
