Definitely a much more affordable version of the popular flat irons out there. It's works great, it does exactly the same thing as the more pricey ones do and it is way more affordable. It has an on/off switch and a temperature control button. There are 1 inch and 1.5 inch available and you can find it anywhere (i.e. Walmart, Target etc...) My daughter has A LOT of hair and naturally curly and she loves when I flat iron her hair because it is much more manageable that way. I highly recommend this flat iron if you are on a budget or like me, not willing to spend so much just for the "popular name"
