The curling iron Remington - CI9132 fulfils its task in all test categories. Above all, this product stands out due to its brilliant design. The temperature can be adjusted in different ways, making it suitable for fine but also thick hair. In order to style the hair gently, the Pro+ setting can be activated automatically. In addition, the device contains a key lock, an automatic safety cut-out and a clamp on the heating cylinder, which makes handling particularly easy. In case of malfunctions, the exceptionally long warranty period is extremely useful.
The curling iron from Remington is delivered in a very high-quality, brown-pink and informative packaging, which makes a very elegant impression. Included in delivery is the curling iron, a manual and a pink travel bag. The design is in white, anthracite, and rosé. The device contains a Grip Tech ceramic coating, which is slightly rougher and therefore slip-resistant. The handle is made of plastic and the device also has two temperature switches to regulate the temperature. A small display indicated the adjustable temperatures between 120°C and 210°C. The device has a rotatable cable, which proves to be very practical for the application. An automatic safety switch-off and a key lock are also integrated.
In order to give a detailed insight into the product and its range of functions, the overall impression, temperature control, ergonomics, price/performance ratio, and curl result were compared and evaluated. For the test process, we set the highest temperature level, which is 210°C. The temperature of the curls is the same as the temperature of the hair. The heating time is approx. one to two minutes and not 30 seconds as indicated in the operating instructions. The display will flash until the selected temperature is reached. The device also contains a clamp on the heating cylinder, which allows the individual strands to be fixed when curling. This is very practical in terms of handling. The heating cylinder has a circumference of 11 cm, which can be used to curl medium curls and large waves. The curling iron has an integrated "Pro+" setting which automatically adjusts the temperature to 185°C for gentle styling. As the curling iron contains an automatic safety switch-off, it switches off automatically after 60 min. if not operated. Furthermore, the key lock is to be evaluated very positively, as the device cannot be switched off accidentally by touch. During the application, it was noticeable that the rough surface of the heating cylinder holds the hair better on the curling iron.
The Remington curling iron belongs to the medium price range in the test but also delivers a quite good result. The instruction manual is structured in several languages and explained in an understandable way.
When using, make sure that the hair is only curled when dry and that no hair styling products are used before wrapping. In case of malfunctions, the manufacturer grants a 5-year warranty. In addition, the warranty period can be extended by one year for online registration within 28 days.
