I have had both the org and now I own the gold one, they both do an amazing job, the gold comes with a plate guard though, great for covering hot plates for travel or storage if you don't have time to put it away and Gold has a one year longer warranty than the original.....hope that helps.

The Professional (black plates) is for thicker, coarser hair and gets hotter. I have tried both and honestly like the Gold better and I have thick and coarse hair. It is the better iron for any hair type.
