This is my second Muk Straightener in the last 6 years. My first one lasted ages and would of still been fine except for the fact that I dropped it from the top shelf :( kudos to me for that one. On the plus side I now have a brand new one again. These Straighteners never fail to disappoint. Always heating up fast. Straightening or creating curls and waves are always flawless. Super impressed always and at a great price !
