Rowenta 1800W Pro Master Steam Iron with Platinium Soleplate
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.
Not durable, do not buy
The iron stopped working in less than 1 year, had identical problem with previous Rowenta iron.
I am very happy with this iron. It is my second Rowenta. I don't have trouble seeing the water level on this blue iron. It does not leave water spots. It have worked beautifully so far.
Best price for this iron. Steams powerfully and is lighter weight than comparable non-QVC model. Only downside, hard to see the water level. Get it, you'll like it.
A little disappointed - given this is a Rowenta
The iron itself works well for all ironing tasks we use it for. However, with the Cranberry coloring - you can not tell what the water level in the tank is. Can not see through the coloring. Just wanted to make it known and maybe something can be done for future designs.
Steamy and hot purchase
Love this item. Recommend it highly. I am so glad to have purchased this item. The best Iron I have ever owned.
Rowenta 1800W Pro Master Iron
Finally an Iron that does what it is suppose to do. Excellent Iron. All the little holes produce an abundence of Great Steam. Heats up quickly. Just what I have always wanted. Does a marvelous job on all my clothes. Very, very happy!
Not the best Iron
I purchased this iron about a year ago. I have to agree with some of the other reviews that the iron does leave water marks (which it stated it wouldn't) and it is IMPOSSIBLE to see that water level!!!!! Also,I have found that if I let the iron stand and allow for the iron to let some steam out on it's own - then iron - it won't leave water spots. But what a pain to have to do that all the time. It could be a fabulous iron except just too sensitive of an iron. I paid big bucks for this so I have to make it work.
I really hoped this iron would be better than the previous 2 Rowentas I had. The iron had 2 issues. It left wet spots on my clothes - it is advertised not to do this.
Secondly, because of the color of the tank, it is very difficult to see the water level in the iron and to know when to refill it.
Very disappointing ! I returned the iron.
