Yesterday I asked for suggestions for a new iron. Saw this at amazon.com. Its a silicone iron rest by Whitmor. The cost is $9.91 plus S&H. Has anyone used one of these? Thought it would make it easier to remember to turn the iron off when done when I see it laying flat.

I like the metal case/rack that clamps onto my ironing board too, like Jennie.  I originally got it so that kids & pets couldn't knock the iron off or over, works great.  Most irons have an automatic shut off now, which I often curse, but still am glad to have!

I would rather rely on the metal rack that fits on the end of my ironing board.  At least if I leave the iron on it isn't touching anything flammable.  I would worry about forgetting it on the silicone rest.

I did the same thing, Connie! I got it at Wal-Mart used it the next time I ironed and it got way too hot so I haven't used it since.

I bought something similar at WalMart a while back....don't use it at all...Thought it got too hot and was scared it would melt and ruin my iron. Anyway it was too hot to touch and the iron wasn't on it all that long.

I have one, but don't use it much.  I sometimes put it under my iron while it is sitting up if I am at retreat and using a table with only an iron pad.  Don't want to melt a table:-)  I have never left it flat on there.  I melted a hole in a silicone cake pan, I left on my eye of the stove I didn't realize I had turned the eye on.  It melted right through.  I use silicone in the oven and it is fine but it didn't work out so well in direct contact with heat.
