V26079 - Rowenta 1800W Advancer Iron w/ Microsteam 400 Hole Soleplate
This is my 2nd Rowenta iron and I LOVE IT! I will never own anything other than a Rowenta.
The steam actaully works in a vertical position which is great when there is only a wrinkle or 2 from being hung in the closet.
This is a wonderful iron and you will never regret the purchase.
Heaviest Iron Ever
This is the heaviest iron I have ever owned. Never again buy anything I can't hold before I buy it. Plus it leaks like the other customers said.
Not what I thought!!
This is the second iron that I have had in the 1800W Rowenta. The first one had to be sent back because of it leaking during ironing. Had to wait for a long time to get the replacement and it does the same thing. Decided I would keep it because as long as I don't have to many pieces of irong to do it does a great job. The problem comes when I need to do over 10 pieces of clothing. It will leak all over the clothes while you are ironing. I have never put anything but spring water in it thinking that would keep it from leaking like the first one. Too pricey for the problem leaking.
Seemed like a great iron, but lasted only a year. I have had some really cheap irons in my lifetime and none have ever just stopped working. I really don't even iron that much.
Worst Purchase Ever
This is not a reliable iron. Stopped working after 8 months, and the replacement died after 3 months. Run away from this brand!!!!!!!
AFTER 2 YEARS MY ROWENTA IRON STARTED TO LEAK FROM THE BASE OF THE IRON. I LOVED THIS IRON. I TOLD ALL MY FRIEND ABOUT THE ROWENTA IRONS.
I WILL HAVE TO TELL THEM NOT TO BUY A ROWENTA. I HAVE BEEN READING OTHER REVIEW AND IT IS THE SAME . LEAKING FROM THE BASE. ROWENTA IS GREAT WHEN IT IS NEW. BUT IT IS TOO MUCH MONEY TO HAVE IT ONLY LAST 2 YEARS.
Owned this iron about 18 months. It just quit. No heat..nothing
Will someone PLEASE manufacture an iron without automatic shut-off.
Automatic shut-off is not what a seamstress wants. and guess what, I am responsible and can turn the darn thing off MYSELF, Thank you!!!!
This is not the first Rowenta that has lived a short life-one year warranty--what a joke!!!
The first time I purchased this iron I had to return it to Rowenta within a month or so because it was scorching everything I ironed. Eventually they sent me a new iron with no explanation as to what was wrong with the first one. The new one has worked fairly well up until yesterday when it simply started leaking at the base, water coming out all over the place. Looks like the seal has stopped functioning. It has been two years that I've had this iron. It seems to me that an expensive iron such as this one should last somewhat longer' than 2 years; $100+ to pay for an iron that will only last two years is a lot of money. I have another Rowenta iron (less expensive than this one) which I've had for about 7 years and it's still working well. Rowenta needs to rework this iron and get it to last longer than it does at present.
Great while it works
I purchased this iron twice, once in 2007 and again in 2008. Both times the iron just quit working after less than one year. When it did work it was great. I do a lot of ironing and this iron really cut the time in half. I hope they find the defect & fix it. I really would love to try it one more time but I would like to know that it will last.
Good for a short time
I bought this iron in 2007 from QVC.
I was ironing last week and it just quit!
Loved the performance while it lasted but too expensive to buy
every two years.
Would not buy again!
I bought this iron two years ago and it no longer works...After reading other reviews...I see I am not the only one having this problem. I wanted to buy my daughter a new iron for Christmas.....but if this one is only going to last 2 years, I can invest a lot less money for something this disposable. It works great for as long as it works....which obviously isn't very long.
Purchased this iron a couple of months ago and was not sure what to expect after reading several of the reviews. I do not find the iron too heavy as several people indicated. I must say it is the best iron I have ever purchased without a doubt.
