The curler works well. It didn't take long to heat up. I only used 180 and it still heats up moderately quick. The little stand at the back is especially useful to keep your curler safely on surfaces.
It's not as heavy as I thought it was however it does take some getting used to and some practice. But for someone who is terrible at curling or styling my own hair this product does a great job at crimping.
It took quite a long time to receive my product. It also came a little scuffed on the clasp. Looks like it was scratched? Nonetheless it works fine but something to note. If you are purchasing this.
For the price point it is a cheap alternative that actually does its function which is to curl your hair. Do keep in mind that it is a uncommon shape so it does take little practice. Working on small sections is the best and easiest way to handle this product.
