Rowenta 1800W Pro Master Steam Iron with Platinium Soleplate
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.
Had this iron for just over one year and it got stuck in the auto-turn off mode. The manufacturer refused to accept responsibility and the nearest official repair place was hundreds of miles away. I just got a new iron rather than go through the the trouble and expense of fixing this piece of junk.
The Cadillac of Irons
I haaaaate to iron, but have no choice. My last iron which was a Shark really turned it into an annoying chore until it finally conked out on me last week. I immediately went to QVC because I know that they sell top quality products. I looked at a few videos and decided to go with this iron. As soon as it came yesterday I had a load of things that needed to be ironed. The iron heated up in less than a minute and I started on my 1 year olds clothes. Some of her dresses and outfits have ruffles and pleats in them that are very hard to iron but this iron made it a breeze because of the somewhat pointy tip that allows you to get into "crevices" on these outfits. Her clothes came out so nice and it looked like I sent them to the dry cleaner to be pressed when I was done. The iron easily glided over all of the clothes and I really had to only run it across once because it was hot enough to knock the wrinkles out the first time.
I really do not like to iron, but I needed to replace a 9 year old Rowenta that just stopped heating. I ordered this iron and it is so much nicer than my old one. It is the perfect weight and glides over clothes. I do not like to iron, but this iron makes the task enjoyable. I love it.
Love the Iron, and I love the new water entry. I have had a Rowenta before and loved it also.
only problem: color Blue is to dark, and I have a heard time seeing the water level.
This Rowenta iron is the fourth one I have had - and by far, the very best one! It is a bit heavier than the others, but seems to function so much better. Am thinking of purchasing another one - just for a back up, because I love this one so much.
Best Iron I've ever used or owned!
The Rowenta 1800W Pro Master has proven to be the best iron I've ever used or owned! I bought one for my sister, who told me she already had a professional garment steamer that she used regularly. I told her to try the Rowenta... and she loves it! Her daughters love it too! Great gift. I was smart enough to get one for myself, and it saves me so much time. Its remarkable!
I bought this for the steam and ease of use
This iron is exactly what the on air presentation said it was. I don't have to iron over a spot I have already done. The iron is not too heavy and I love the larger water resivor. I don't enjoy ironing, but I like my clothes to be wrinkle free. This iron helps to get the job done faster.
HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY
The only times I write a review is when I'm really DISSATISFIED or EXTREMELY SATISFIED. In this case, I am EXTREMELY SATISFIED with the Rowenta 1800 W Pro Master Steam Iron. For 31 years, I have spent hundreds of dollars on Irons only to have them stop working in a few months, water leak, too heavy, etc,...But when I stayed at my bosses house while she was in Japan, and used her Rowenta Iron from QVC, I could not believe it. I didn't wait until I got home to order one for me and the family...I ordered it ASAP...It's been 5 months and works GREAT, Very Light weight, Steams great, and it won't burn your clothes. This is a MUST HAVE for every household!!!!!
I have bought Rowenta's in the past...
I saw the demonstration of this iron about seven months ago. I had bought Rowenta's in the past, so I ordered it. I soon realized that the iron works best on 1000% cotton or linen. It did not work well with fabric blends (cottton/poly). It takes a long time to recover on the lower settings. It spits, and leaves marks on the fabric. Now the steam button has broken. I never had this problem with other Rowenta's, and it appears to be an issue with this model only.
This is one heavy duty iron. I hate to iron. With this one, you can get away with just steaming clothes.
