A U-Smooth flat iron is a specific brand of heated hair straightener. It is a flat iron with titanium straightening plates and a controllable digital thermostat. It boasts 1,000 hours of usage time and a switch that turns the iron off at 464 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent fires and burning.
The U-Smooth professional flat iron has 1 1/2 inch plates and retails in the mid-$100 range as of 2014. A smaller version, the U-Smooth Mini, heats up to 410 degrees but does not have an adjustable thermostat. Retailing in the $40 to $60 range as of 2014, the U-Smooth Mini travels well, but doesn't have the functionality of the full-size iron.
