V31543 - Rowenta 1500W SteamIron w/Cord Reel &MicrosteamSoleplate
Disappointed in Rowenta
This was my second or third purchase of a Rowenta iron, and every one that I've had has eventually leaked water, which makes it unusable.They start out doing a great job, then eventually leak.Hate this.Want an iron that I can use til it gets old and burns out, not one that won't last long enough to get your money's worth!Won't EVER purchase another Rowenta!!
Disappointed in this Iron
Thought this would be a good iron for the money but when I received it the cord won't reel back inside of it unless you help push it in. They weight is just too light for me but will work for a backup.
worst purchase from qvc
thank God this is not available anymore. Like other reviews, mine did not hold up either. used it 4 times & the cord would not rewind. where is your quality control team?
it;s a piece of junk, bad part is, i ordered 2 & gave 1 as a gift.
Worst Purchase Ever
This has to be the worst iron I have ever purchased. After "4 months" this iron doesn't work at all. First the auto coil stopped working and now the iron doesn't work. This will be my last Rowenta purchase. Not sure where the quality was in this product.
Love this iron
Whatva super product. Rowena definitely outdid themselves on this one. I love the quality of the iron, and the retractable cord makes storage a breeze.
A pleasure to use
I have used this iron almost daily for 5 months. It is a pleasure to use. Probably my favorite feature is the excellent steam. I appreciate the narrow tip that fits into those small areas. This iron gets the job done quickly and easily. I noticed some reviews that mentioned problems with the cord reel. I only retract my cord occasionally, but when I do, it retracts fine.
My 3rd Rowenta
My 3rd Rowenta iron and love it. My first Rowenta is still fantastic after more than 20 years. I gave my second to my neighbor when her big name iron fell apart after less than a year. This was such a great price I had to buy (and Rick got me all excited on Anything Goes) and it is fantastic. I do a lot of ironing and my Rowenta irons never fail me. And if Rick and Shawn say buy this, I know I can shop with confidence.
Waste of Money
I should have checked this out as soon as it arrived but put it away for my son's college (military so he needs a good iron). This spits, can's see water fill markings and that cord reel was my big purchasing point...it has never worked! How can Rowenta put out such a poor product? A company known for quality oversold a very poor iron...save your money. I wish I had. Going out to buy an iron that lives up to it's selling points! Sorry Rowenta and QVC you blew it with this one. Starting to wonder about your "strict" quality control at QVC.
a little disappointed
The iron itself works fine. I like the shape, the many steam vents and the light weight.
The dark color that I got makes it very, very hard to read the dial because of location and color. The other negative is the cord reel. It does not work. If you are buying this model for that purpose you will be disappointed.
A Good Product
We have had 3 Rowenta irons--each has lasted a Long Time without problems. The cord-retract feature works well on our iron. As always, Rowenta irons work extemely well for removing wrinkles and giving a professional look in a short amount of ironing time. I don't understand reviewers who have issues with this iron, but 'dump it' instead of returning it. I live in the middle of the Pacific and pay higher postage charges than anyone, but have never had a problem returning something to QVC that does not work properly, or fit properly.
Great iron, BUT . . .
The cord retraction mechanism does not work well. I have to press the button and practically push the cord back into the iron. Other than that, it gets out wrinkles easily and nicely, steams out folds beautifully. I got in black and love it. Other than the cord issue, this iron works like a dream.
Back for a 2nd One!
I love this iron. It is amazing. It irons both sides at the same time. I don't understand the negative remarks about the cord. I use my all the time and the cord still works and retrives back in when I push the button. My daughter came over and used it and said she would love to have one. So I ordered her one and put it away for a Christmas present. We both love the iron and it has cut ironing in half. Thank you Rowenta!
