Ironing Is A Beautiful Thing!
I purchased the Fashion Week iron with the Mercedes logo and all that but returned it for this one instead. Smart move. Always go with your first impulse. This iron is great! I've ironed everything in this place! I've always like ironing my own clothes because it somehow relaxes me and sort of like a metaphor for "ironing" out the wrinkles in my life. Now the 3D Soleplate glides over the garment unlike any other Rowenta I've ever owned. It doesn't have nearly as much steam as the Fashion Week one but doesn't need it. You can actually iron multiple garments on just one tank of water as opposed to just one shirt with the other one. This is the one. Trust us!
Best Darn Iron EVER!
I've been using this iron for about a month now and I LOVE it! I gave it the best test I could think by ironing table linens without wetting them down first, using just the steam from the iron. The came out beautifully and this usually cumbersome job was fast and easy. I'm hooked! Like several of the other reviewers, I also tried the TSV iron from Fashion Week and returned it. This iron is hands over fist better than any iron I have ever used.
Really does iron well. Have a little trouble reading and adjusting the temp wheel and filling it(which is why I gave 4 stars). It has not leaked which is great. Love the extra shot of steam. All in all I really do like it and would recommend it.
After years of buying inexpensive irons that ended up breaking or leaking, I finally splurged and purchased this item after reading the good reviews. This is a great iron. It works quickly even on the toughest material (like a deeply wrinkled linen tablecloth or a queen sized cotton, ruffled bed skirt). My husband loves using it on his shirts for work, It work perfectly around buttons and leaves a good crease in his pleated pants. I am looking forward to using the vertical steam for curtains this spring. I highly recommend it - it was worth the price.
OMG--how did I live without this iron! Without realizing it, I've been limping along for years with my old Rowenta Powerglide--putting up with leaks, putting up with having to spray dampen 100% cotton napkins and then ironing the damp spots over and over to dry them. With this new iron, no spraying, no damp areas! I finished ironing my table linen in about 1/3 of the time. It's a bit heavier than my old iron, but not unbearable--and the weight probably helps with the de-wrinkling. Left the cotton completely wrinkle-free and crisp. Get this iron! You won't be disappointed--yes, a bit pricey, but well worth it. Just not sure what they mean by a mesh ironing board cover in the instructions.
doesn't heat up enough and too much steam
even on linen my rowenta was the temp of synthetic
and all the STEAM left my fabrics limp instead of crisp and pressed
still searching for a good iron
I LOVE THIS!
I am one of those rare people who actual enjoys ironing. This iron is great. Quick and easy work on any fabric!
Best Iron Ever
I had the Rowenta Professonal iron that I just loved till it fell and started to leak and sputter water. I have always been a Rowenta customer. I did the research and was having a hard time deciding between a couple of irons. I am so happy I decided on this iron and did not listen to some negative ratings.
One negative people say is the dial is hard to read - It is harder to read than some but not not impossible. I wear glasses and when I iron I do not wear the glasses and can still read the dial and see the settings.
The grip fits perfect to your hand and makes it so easy to iron your clothes along with how light the iron is. This is a big change for me I aways thought you needed the weight of the iron to get wrinkles out of your clothes. That is not true. This iron zaps the wrinkles right out the first time over.
The rubber heal is great in keeping your iron safe and secure where you put it so it wont slide and fall.
The slender point on the iron really helps with the hard to reach areas on shirt collars and cuffs.
Also this iron is very pretty to look at while you are ironing which is a plus it helps give you a happy feeling while you iron.
As you can tell I am very happy with my purchase!
Not Worth the Money
Based on the other reviews, I must have gotten a lemon. First, the steam gage was broke and would not stay in any position but off ( a twisty tie fixed that.) Second, it spits out water all over my cloths when you engage the steam button. I should have sent it back but by the time I started to use the iron the thirty day return was over.
I've used a lot of irons in my time and this is by far the best one I've ever, ever used! I find it a litte bit heavy for my bad shoulder but it makes up for it by taking less time to do the job. It puts all other irons to shame by a country mile!!! If a person buys it they will NOT be sorry!!
Exceeded my expectations
This is my second Rowenta iron. The first lasted 12 years which is good considering I iron almost all my clothes especially in the summer. The steam feature is outstanding and my clothes look great. Will never use anything but a Rowenta iron. Made in Germany means the quality is excellent.
