Rowenta 1800W Pro Master Steam Iron with Platinium Soleplate
Happy to do everyone's ironing now!
My previous iron gave up the ghost recently and it was one of those with very few steam holes in it so ironing was a tedious task. My husband bought this iron for me and I cannot believe the massive difference between the Rowenta and the other iron! It is true that having many steam holes makes all the difference in the world for ease and distribution of steam. One thing I noticed is the weight of the iron also assists in knocking out the wrinkles. My husband has a sport shirt that is 100% woven cotton and I dread with I have to iron it but that was the first thing I used the iron on as it was a good test of the capabilities. I have not used every single feature yet, but can tell it will deliver on what it was intended to do! This is my first Rowenta and I am very pleased with the results!
I was skeptical but thought I'd give it a try. This iron delivers. It took half the time to iron all the shirts and slacks for the week. Lots of steam! It felt a little heavier than my old iron but that was not an issue. It took so little time to iron I didn't care what this iron weighed. Just try and get it back! Love this iron!
Not As Good As Reputation
This is the third Rowenta iron I have received from QVC. The first one leaked after about year. The second one leaked within a fews months. I returned the second iron to QVC and they replaced it. However the"new" iron (which looked like someone else returned by the packaging) doesn't get hot enough and also leaks/spits. I'm through with Rowenta products.
Rowenta is the only brand of iron I will buy.
This is my second Rowenta - the first one lasted nearly 13 years. As much as I loved my last one, this one is even better! The number of steam holes in the bottom plate is almost countless. The worst wrinkles don't stand a chance; they are quickly and easily dealt with. It has a nice heft to it, as any premium quality iron should. My only suggestion would be that the cord be a little bit longer, like my last one.
Love the look of the iron and the many steam holes, irons nice, but drips all over the place. Too late to return it, so I use it without the steam. Not a good value for the money. Very disappointed.
Iron doesnt work afer 1.5 years
I purchased this iron for my mother in law September 2013. She informed me March 2015 that the iron no longer works! She said that it would "sputter" as if it were heating up, and then eventually got to the point where it COMPLETELY stopped working!
I thought that this brand was one of the top of the line irons ~ save your money! NOT HAPPY that it stopped working shortly after the 1 year limited warranty!
Shame on QVC for selling this
This is my third Rowenta iron. Had this been my first Rowenta iron there would never have been a second or third. I don't know how they dropped the ball on this thing but it is horrible. I have used the little throw away irons at cheap hotels that are better than this thing. Water disappears. Every time you go to use it the reservoir is empty. No leaks show in my closet but it has to be going somewhere. It certainly isn't going out as steam. Very weak in that category. Don't like ironing something and then putting it on and it is still wrinkled and "WET". And I always iron on one of the highest heat settings. I will probably be throwing this out and just accepting that I wasted my money and find something else. Please don't waste yours.
Nothing like the way it performed when I had seen it on tv
Rowenta 1800 watt Two with same problem
Have purchased several rowenta irons over the years like the first one up so i bought a 1800 watt it leaked after sometime so ordered TWO 1800 watt one for both my homes Cord on both has shorted out on both within 5 Yrs. will not purchase another rowenta iron
So happy I made this purchase!!!
This iron takes the chore out of ironing...REALLY. It was a splurge for me to buy this model, but worth every penny!!! It makes ironing a breeze, and my blouses and slacks look great. My pants held the crease all day...this iron did such a nice job...makes them really made look great!
Not Very Good Iron
I've bought quite a lot of Rowenta Irons over the years and gave to friends and family's for gift. But of late I've notice there quality is not up to standard like years ago. This one leak water all over your clothes and I hate it.
Best Iron Ever
I read the reviews before purchasing and most complained of not being able to see when the water resevoir was full. I can see it, but if that is your only complaint, oh well. This iron does a fabulous job. Wrinkles come out with ease and no back breaking work like my last iron (and I had a Rowenta). I just took 100% cotton curtains out of their packages and the creases came out with one swipe of the iron. I still hate to iron, but I certainly hate it less than before. Thanks Rowenta for making my life just a little easier.
