Rowenta 2013 Fashion Week 1725 Watt Iron with Platinium Soleplate
Was sent a DEFECTIVE model that looked a return
I was so excited when I ordered this. Rowenta has an excellent reputation and the reviews were outstanding for this product. I got it for my mother for Christmas, only to find that I had been sent a Defective used iron. It had water stains on the bottom. The top had finger smudges on it, near the water tank. We tried it being it was there. It didn't work properly and looks like they sent out a returned item. I might get a quick burst of steam but then nothing. Not at all like the presentation. It also leaked on the clothes and were left with huge wet spots. I could get a much cheaper iron in the store that performed like this one. Very disappointing and embarrassing as well. QVC- please don't send out return defective items such as this to your customers. Too bad, as I had high hopes for this when I ordered it.
Hubby Likes It
Even at special price, it's a lot of money for an iron. I bought it anyway because hubby was complaining our iron left water marks on his shirts and took too long to iron wrinkles out. I saw this one night and ordered thinking I can always return it if it doesn't perfrom as stated.
Well, he likes it. He says it takes him half the time to iron his clothes.
The reason I gave 4 stars is because this iron is heavy. If you have problem lifting and gripping, this may not be the iron for you.
My hubby spent 25 years in the military. When we got married he was use to his clothes pressed in a certain way so he took them to the cleaners. Since he knows how he wants them, I suggested he iron them or continue taking to cleaners.
Given as a gift. This was a welcomed gift. Works great. Given to someone who previously owned Rowenta and tried cheaper irons of less quality. Was so happy to receive a quality iron. Thanks QVC for the great price on a great product.
I am a Rowenta girl from way back. Needed a new iron after several years. Really like this one. Like the narrow tip. Runs out of water quickly because of all the steam. Great temp control.
This iron is best I have owned. It never leaks, and stores great.
I am know in my kingdom as the queen of ironing. I quilt, I use a iron daily. I iron shirts with this iron to. My Rowenta I purchased years ago from QVC finally died - I was so sad as it really got the job done and I was afraid I would not find a replacement. This is a fabulous Iron ! A joy to iron with! I love a heavy iron. and I like the different settings. Only with you could read the water level a bit better. I see it is gone now , I ordered another Rowenta from QVC as I never want to be with out one! Thank you Rowenta for making a wonderful Iron.
The best iron I've ever owned. Steams beautifully. One pass... your done. I've owned various irons over the last 30 years...even another Rowenta (dropped on concrete, sadly) but even the other Rowenta was not as good as this one! Will never buy a cheap iron again. Hopefully there will be no need!
First of all I have wanted a nicer iron for the longest!! I couldn't understand paying the price for this one or any others over $ 30.00 but I got it!! The steam and sole plate are incredible!! I love the way it has a square bottom and sits better on the ironing board. I iron my son & my clothes every day and it gets old, especially with the iron I had which would leave trail marks of water on the clothes. This hasn't done that (so far) and I have hopes it doesn't. I don't like the cord being at the top of the unit that would be one drawback. I noticed the way the khaki pants my son wears for school uniforms looked crisper in one pass. It's a heavy iron but glides nicely. I'm glad I finally broke down and bought it. It's a keeper!
5 star purchase
A buy you can never go wrong with !!! When you take care of rowenta. This product takes care of the entire FAMILY.
Talking about a Mercedes. That's exactly what this is. LUV, LUV, LUV
BEST IRON EVER
I purchased this iron and received it last night. I filled it up and took it for a spin. The iron glides over wool, cotton, linen, and nylon with very little effort. Best part is nothing sticks to the sole plate. Worth the investment. Would highly recommend!
Love this Iron!!!!
I Iron a lot of my Husbands all cotton button down shirts and I would have to use tons of starch to get the wrinkles out. NO MORE... This iron steams them all out. A Iron has to be of some weight as we all know to be a great Iron. This Iron is just right in weight. It makes me not dread my ironing pile each week. So if you are looking for a great Iron here it is.
