iron shopping

I have been looking for a new iron for several weeks now and have come to a conclusion they were not made by someone who sews small pieces together and need to press at will and sew again stupid auto shut off 8 min seriously ! I don't mind the 30 sec it you leave it on its face so I went in search of yesterday roweta makes one you can override with the steam button but it is over 150$ noway

I found one at big lots plugged it in this morning and read that it does have auto shut off I don't think it is the iron I was looking at
I bought a black n decker at kmart for around 20$ and it got hot fast and stayed hot no shut off so the rowenta that I bought at big lots is goin back when I got to the dentist tues.I was reading online that people were getting cheap ones at dollar store without shut off but the only one they had shut off to
