Wax Iron Features
Many irons look alike and all give out heat, but there are many differences. Ski wax irons generally have a thicker heat plate, more heating elements and a precise thermostat.
Cheap household irons don't retain heat well and quickly cool when in contact with a room temp ski base. They eventually heat up again, but will continue to have heat pulled out of them until the ski base sufficiently warms. A danger is that people turn up the heat and burn the base plus the thermostat has relatively wide fluctuations.
A few extra dollars for a ski wax iron is a small price when waxing $700 skis.
