Rowenta 1800W Pro Master Steam Iron with Platinium Soleplate
Love this iron!
This in not my first Rowenta iron - but so far my favorite, the water reservoir is sizable which makes it much easier when ur ironing pile requires a lot of steaming. My only complaint is that it is almost impossible to see when the water is at the max fill indicator, unless u hold it up to a very bright light at just the right angle. So usually end up overfilling and pouring some out to best guess level. The weight of this iron is fairly substantial and may be too much for some, but I feel it helps in efficiency and less strokes. I was able to iron several new queen and king dust ruffles folded in half ( so ironing double thickness- but half the length and time for ironing) -- steam regular and burst of steam both give very satisfactory results.
I purchased a Rowenta iron several years ago from QVC. It did not iron any better than other brands. After a year it started leaking all over everything, then one day I filled it and all the water poured out the back as fast as I put it in. I contacted Rowenta about getting it repaired and they told me they don't do repairs! It went in the trash because it was useless and Rowenta will never get another purchase from me. Terrible Customer Service!!!
Good but disappointing
Because of the color of the plastic it is hard to tell how much water is left in the iron. Do love the way the iron works on my clothes though.
This is my forth Rowenta iron and the worst one yet! It says no drip, not my iron, it drips on everything. You can hardly see where you fill the tank and easy to over fill it. This iron is not worth the money. I will never buy a rowenta again!
Stiff as a board!!
I LOVE this iron. I've never been good at ironing but now I am. My husband is in law enforcement and has a military background so he likes his clothes so stiff that they practically walk themselves to the closet!! LOL He always did his own ironing with A LOT of starch because I couldn't iron to his liking. With this iron, I can (not sure if that is a good thing or not!) but I don't mind because ironing is easy with this iron. My mother wears scrubs so she liked the results and ordered her one as well as my aunt. Very good buy and well worth the money. Makes ironing fast and easy!!!
I hate to iron, but I really appreciate this iron. I bought it in blue and do not have any problem seeing the water level. I love that you can use tap water. I just unplug it and fill it up at the sink. This is a well made iron-nice soleplate, long cord, not too heavy (though it is not a really light iron), heats up quickly, nice burst of steam. I'm very happy with this purchase and would recommend this iron.
THIS IS the third rowenta iron my wife have purchased. She loves the iron but this one leaks. She is not happy with the water leaking and getting what she is ironing all wet..
love this iron, only down fall you can't see the water level
Stuck steam button
I have bought Rowentas before, because I HATE ironing and I wear a lot of linen and cottons. As soon as it came my son's iron in college broke so I gave him my old Rowenta. This "new" one doesn't heat up much anymore and the steam button is stuck in the down position. My son is now in grad school with my old Rowenta, which still works really well and I am stuck. I will buy Rowenta again, but this one was a dud.

This is my second Rowenta and It performs very well, but it has two issues that are a pain.
One is the Plastic water compartment is so opaque you cannot tell the water level until it overflows.
The second is the cord. My previous Rowenta had an automatic cord winder in the base which was really a great feature. The new one does not have this, nor any other hooks or protrusions that would allow you to wrap the cord around the iron.
Small complaints but a real bummer..

Do not hesitate to spend the money on this iron. This is my second Rowenta iron. The price may seem scary, but believe me it's worth the extra money. The last Rowenta iron I purchased was 15 years ago. I swear by them. I despise ironing with a passion, but with this iron you're done in no time.
I have had several Rowenta irons and come back each time for a new one when I pass them on to my children.
