Best for price I used to own a CHI but it stoped working after 6 months. This Remington flat iron works just as well and I can choose a lower temperature if I want to. I'm pretty happy with it. My hair is straight-ish with lots of frizz and this gets the job done. My mother in law purchased this flat iron for her curly hair as well after using mine. March 6, 2014
Pretty and functional I find it is very easy to handle and also pretty sitting on the counter. It works great! January 14, 2014
Love this straightener! I have had this straightener for three years now, and it has traveled all over the world. It heats up fast, is very effective, and straightens very well! Minimal frizz and it does the job wonderfully. Definitely cost-effective; this is an amazing straightener for the price! September 14, 2013
Excellent Product I have this flat iron for a few years already and is awesome. Is great, heat up real fast, and the price was unbelievable. For sure I will get another one if necessary. The size is excellent too. September 13, 2013
Has worked for me for years. I got this straightener at least 3 years ago, and I love it. Sadly (but good for you guys), when I bought it, it was like 3 times as much. It straightens my hair wonderfully. No problems whatsoever. Heats up really quickly. Still going strong years later. September 10, 2013
Amazing! I bought this product almost an hour ago and tried it and it is AMAZING! It straightened one piece of hair in less than 5 seconds and I have pretty rough hair.It easily crimps and curls too! Go buy it! June 29, 2013
lasts a year This inexpensive straightener worked fine for a year. At first it wouldn't shut off without pulling the plug. Yesterday it completely stopped working. Although it's still under warranty, and I was told I could send it back, the time it would take for shipping both ways would have me in a rather unruly mess and sending priority is expensive. I decided that I may as well just buy a new one. It may be worth it to invest in one that will last. I guess you get what you pay for. June 27, 2013
IN LOVE I love this product have been using this product from 2010 it works really good straightens fast, good quality and great price. I can even use it to make curls.. March 24, 2013

Replacement Cord

My dog chewed the plug off of the cord to my straightener. Is there anyway I can replace the cord for a price that is less than I paid for the actual straightener or will I have to buy a new straightener?

As far as know. Remington does not sell replacement cords. You will probably have to buy a whole new hair straightener.

Answer: 
Hey EfiS,

The flat iron should automatically convert over to be able to use with a 240 volt supply. You should not have to use an adapter or anything else. I travel a lot and it mine converts over just fine without any hassle.

is there a switch for dual voltage?

Dual voltage appliances often have a switch to convert between 120v and 240v, but I cannot locate such a switch on this product (although it is listed as dual voltage). Does it automatically work at 240v or is this product not, in fact, dual voltage?

Answer: 
Hey Kwil,

It should automatically convert over to a 220/240v line. There is no switch or anything else that you should have to do besides plug it in. Mine does work with both 120 and 220/240v. I travel a lot and need it to work with 240v a lot.

I just received my Remington S-5500 in the mail and nowhere on the product or in the manual does it say that it's a dual voltage appliance. It only states 120V-60Hz. The only reason why I purchased this product was for the dual voltage function since I will be traveling abroad in a couple weeks. Is there an explanation for this?

Hey Phasedemormories,

Your hair straightener should automatically convert over to use with a 220/240 supply. You should not have to buy any kind of adapter. All you have to do is plug it in.

They should automatically convert over. There is no switch, adapter or anything that you should have to do manually. The one that I have has no issue with converting over to a 220/240v.

Answers

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. The turbo boost for this unit allows the user to turn the unit and set it to the highest temperature easily and quickly. By using the turbo function you do not have to dial through all of the temperature settings, it will automatically jump to the maximum heat possible. The display should show you what temperature setting you are at, number of bars that correspond to the temperature and a lock/un lock symbol.

Why the bad odor?

I absolutely love this straightener! Problem is that it emits a VERY STRONG odor. I bought it for my daughter for Christmas 2011 and the smell has not gone away. I thought it was just the "new heating appliance" odor but it is still there. It is not from styling products and the plates are clean.
