V31016 - Eurosteam Steam Iron with Boiler Tank & CeramicSoleplate
Too heavy too hot
Disappointed after using this beyond the return time. It's too heavy and gets too hot. I had to use a pot holder to hold it while ironing. I finally gave up and went back to my old stand by.
Disappointed after a few uses
So excited after seeing on air presentation. Ordered right away. Very disappointed. Iron is too heavy for senior citizen with arthritis. After on a few uses, sputtering and spitting on garments and drapes. Way, way over priced. Should have purchased a new Rowneta.
Wonderful and Awful
This is my 3rd Eurosteam iron. It is fantastic. However, the first one within the year started spewing steam (blown gasket). It was replaced by manufacturer. The replacement iron did the same thing after 18 months. This one I ordered from QVC did the same thing after 13 months. Warranty is 12.
So while it's working, it is one of the best.....but so expensive that it is really not worth it if that is what is going to happen.
I will never buy another iron!
I wasn't planning on writing this review, I just looked it up because I'm thinking about giving it as a Christmas gift. When I saw the negative reviews I just had to add my two cents. First off...over two years ago I bought my first Eurosteam at a county fair for nearly $400! The steam pressure got too low to iron anymore. I have since found out that it was my fault because I NEVER cleaned it (thinking I didn't have to if I used distilled water). I tried the most expensive ones available at my local big box store (around $100 ea.).None of them compare. The steam pressure is sooo much better on this iron! It also NEVER burns any fabric! I iron a lot of work close for my husband and this makes it not only faster but even better looking. You won't get those ugly shiny marks on fabric and can use it on anything! People at my husbands work always ask what cleaners he goes to when he tells them his wife irons his clothes they usually offer to pay me:) Wish I had time this thing could make me some money. If it seems too pricey think of the money you will save from no longer needing to go to the dry cleaners.
Way Over Priced Steam Iron!
Upon receiving this steam iron, I was very excited to try it to see how well it would perform. I followed the enclosed instructions and proceeded to iron a couple of clothing items. All I can say is that after ironing those two items, I packed it back up and sent it back the very next day. I consider this iron to be way over priced and my existing iron that I've had for close to 8 years now does so much better at 1/3 the price. It would be basically throwing your hard earned money right out the window purchasing this iron but that is just my opinion. You will have to decide for yourself.
I Love This Iron
Yes, it takes a little time to heat up, but very little time to iron your clothes. Just plan accordingly, and remember to let it cool down and empty the water from it when you are finished. I remind myself by leaving the laundry room light on so that when I go back to turn it off, I remember I left it on to remind me to empty the iron. (OK, I am almost 50 and have to do things like this more often!) The excellent ironing results are worth it--especially if I never ruin another favorite garment via ironing again. One of the best items I've purchaed this year.
I have been through my share of irons in my 41 years of marriage; many of them Rowenta irons. I watched several presentations of this iron several months ago and after my daughter ordered one and I tried it out, I decided to order one for myself. I LOVE that I don't have to use a press cloth with this iron and that it will safely iron/steam any type of fabric with any type of embellishment. I don't know why there are negative reviews. You have to prime the iron (first page of the instructions with a * next to the information) which was very simple to do. Then, when ironing, leave the steam dial OFF and only press the button in the center of that dial when you want steam---NO DRIPS; NO MESS; just a beautifully pressed garment! I recommend watching the QVC product video as well. Yes, it is a little pricey for an iron, however, I've paid more than that amount if I total the number of irons I've discarded after a year or so because they were spitting and making a mess. I'm a firm believer in "you get what you pay for", and this reinforces that fact! GREAT IRON; I'm so happy I ordered one!!
When I first received this iron it worked great, but after a couple of weeks it started to drip and doesn't iron very good. I am so disappointed in this iron. I could have bought an iron at Wal-Mart for $50 and gotten a better iron. This makes me nervous to buy other electronics from QVC.
Love this Iron!!
This iron is one of the best items that I've bought on QVC. It's a great steam iron.
I prefer it over the Rowenta. It does take a little while to heat up, but it's worth it. I highly recommend it.
worst purchase ever!
Big waste of money. Iron became very hot on occassion. Wished I had sent it back before my trial date was up. Didn't use it in summer heat and now realize it was a costly mistake.
Nightmare Ironing Experience
This iron seemed wonderful in the qvc presentation and it worked well when I originally purchased it. After a few uses the iron began to spit water all over my clothing which made my ironing experiences twice as long. The troubleshooting guidance was of no assistance. The iron is just not worth the cost!
Love this... but I wouldn't call it an iron
This puts out great steam action. It took about a minute or less to get the wrinkles out of a pair of dress pants. Perfect for steaming the wrinkles out of a Bridesmaid dress! I love that I don't having to worry about burning any fabric. Great steamer! easy to use
