Do new irons have automatic shut off?
Simply so, do irons have automatic shut off?
An iron built for consumers in the last few years, however, will most likely have an auto shut-off switch that turns an iron off before it can do any damage. Even if it is plugged in, it shouldn't cause any damage as long as the power switch is in the Off position.
Likewise, will a hair straightener catch fire? Hair straighteners can get very hot, but the potential for fire damage does not come from their heating element. A faulty cord or electrical outlet is much more likely to cause a fire in your bathroom, and unfortunately, these types of fires can be somewhat common.

How does auto shut off iron work?
An auto shutoff iron turns off in about a minute when motionless and on its side or when the soleplate is down (touching the ironing board). When the iron is upright and in its usual resting position, but motionless, auto shutoff turns off the iron within 8 to 15 minutes.
