Rated 3 out of 5 by sherene doesnt get very hot!
I was looking for a small barrel brush styler - I already have a large one which is great for mid length hair, but I needed something for the shorter lengths.
It does the job but it often loses heat. I have strong sgtraight hair so I need a decent heat setting to style my hair. And of course you have to buy the gas canisters too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jenifer20 Easy and light for travelling
Easy to work, quick to warm up. This is the second one I have bought since Braun stopped making theirs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Countrychick Making the best of a bad choice
Like many other reviewers, I used to have the Bran cordless model and it was a superb tool. I was really disappointed when, after years of use, the ignition failed. Unable to buy a replacement Braun, I was relieved to discover the Babyliss model. However, I'm on my third Babyliss in as many years and all have had to be replaced under warranty. Whilst this model does a relatively good job it's not as good as the Braun model. It doesn't get as hot as the Braun and another major fault is the ease with which the wand can be switched on unintentionally because the ignition switch is not protected. I've lost several bottles of gas and in one, worrying, incident nearly caused a fire when the wand heated up and melted the protective covering. Room for significant improvement with this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PracticalParent Why make a curler that doesn't curl ?
This is not a patch on the old Braun gas styler but there is nothing else on the market so I have bought this out of desperation. It's only purpose is to curl my hair and yet incredibly it has been designed to NOT heat up enough to do the job.
Please, someone make one that works like the old Braun styler. There is clearly a gap in the market.

Rated 1 out of 5 by youngles Don't bother with this
Very disappointing, takes a long time to heat up and doesn't get hot enough to work properly. Definitely not as good as the discontinued Braun product.

Like other reviewers here I am no ex Braun user and overall after several weeks use I am happy with this BaByliss styler. The barrel is larger in circumference than my old Braun and does take longer to heat up but I am just pleased that another gas styler was available to buy.
