Rowenta Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 1725 Watt Steam Iron
I have another Rowenta iron that I love. This one is even better...it's like it has power steering. The only thinks I don't like the water line. You cannot see when it gets to the MAX stage...not transparent.
I have had a Rowenta many years ago and loved it. I iron regularly and it is important that I have a great STEAM iron and the Rowenta brand provides that. The tip of the iron has greatly improved as it is longer and narrower to make getting into tight places easier (between buttons, etc). My major and only compliant with this iron is the deep color of the water reservoir. It is next to impossible to see where the water line is; hence, the 4 stars. I had thought of sending it back but decided to keep and refill often.
This is by far the best small appliance I have ever purchased. I usually don't write reviews but had to for this. I never thought an iron could be amazing but this one is! It takes mere minutes to iron or steam anything. This iron is built to last a lifetime.
Disappointed about this Highly Touted Brand
I returned this product and that was after I used it for nearly 30 days as OVC encourages you to do; by the way you have to pay for shipping for returned items, not mentioned on presentations! My standard for steam irons is basic, lots of steam no water on the clothes. Especially when you push on the steam surge button, this iron did not blast steam ever. It would however, wet the clothes. So it failed my basic standard and I sent it back.
it could been better
I didn't find this iron to be what it was when they were advertising it on the show, it didn't steam well
LOVE THIS IRON...
OMG!!!!! I just ironed everything in my closet. I can't believe what this iron can do. I already had a really nice iron, but nothing like this. Can't wait to do laundry again so I can Iron..lol...
Overall, this iron was so worth the money. I love the 400 steam vents!!! They really get the job done. Everything comes out like it has been professionally ironed. If I have any complaint at all it would be that is is very difficult to see through the purple water reservoir when trying to check if I've added enough water. I either do no put in enough water or put in too much. Still, it was a good investment and I hope I get many years of use from this iron.
Fast ironing. Heats up quickly. Love that it uses tap water.
I wish I had read the reviews - you REALLY can't see how much water is in the iron. The steam doesn't come out - not sure if it's defective - but just doesn't work as good as on QVC!!!! Sending it back - not worth the money. Just a pain to now have to return.
My first Rowenta is now 20 years old. Although there is nothing wrong with it, I liked the "pointy" new design and wanted to upgrade. As others have said, the only "negative" is that you cant see the fill line. But. . .no big deal. . . When I do iron, I'm ironing a lot at once, so I just keep a measuring cup nearby and put water in when it seems to lose steam. LOVE LOVE LOVE this iron!
I have a Rowenta that is about 20 years old so I thought I would update to a new model. This iron is nice; however, you cannot see to fill it. So I took a measuring cup and poured what I thought would be enough water, 10 oz., It works well and allot of steam; however, you have to fill this iron every two shirts you iron. My old one did not need to put water in it every 20 minutes or so. But, it does have more steam so with more steam, you will use more water. I love the fact that it is very pointed and the point is hot so you can get in between hard to iron areas. If you don't mind not seeing the water level, then you would like this iron. If not, this is not for you. I would return it but it would cost too much. I like to see when I'm low on water.
IRON ONLY WITH A ROWENTA . . .
I'M A TWO-YEAR DECADE USER OF ROWENTA IRONS. THIS BRAND IS EXCEPTIONAL! NEW USERS WILL FIND IRONING TO BE A MORE PRODUCTIVE EFFORT, ESPECIALLY WHEN UTILIZING THE STEAMING CAPABILITIES. ALSO, ONCE YOU USE A ROWENTA, YOU'LL UNDERSTAND THAT STARCHING AND REPETITIVE IRONING IS OBSOLETE.
THANKS TO ROWENTA FOR MY MANY YEARS OF EASY, EFFICIENT IRONING!
