Just as good as a Rowenta

Mark S. Owsley, Amazon
13 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a Rowenta that died after 3 years. I took care to buy a German made Rowenta, and it was a fine iron except that the steam vessel leaked after 6 months and the cord twisted at the base to the point that it broke. So much for German quality.

It's in the trash now.

JOHN "John", Amazon
29 January 2012
  • Summary: This thing worked ok until it started leaking water out the back right at the power cord. I imagine that is a real safety hazard. I've probably only used it 10 times before this happened.

Don't buy it

H. Page, Amazon
22 January 2011
  • Summary: I just broke my iron trying to get it to turn back on again. The thing turns off fairly quickly after you turn it on & you have to constantly turn it off again to get any heat out of it. In addition, it's difficult to add water to the iron. Buy another iron.

Don't buy...unless you want to buy another in a year

D.M., Amazon
3 September 2010
  • Summary: I had this iron for about a year and it worked fine until one day I turn it on...and nothing. Dead. Might as well spend double my money upfront on a good iron instead of buying a new one each year.

Inconsistant and fussy

Awfully Quiet, Amazon
25 August 2010
  • Summary: I've had this iron for about 8 months and have had more and more problems using it the longer I have it. When it was new it was very nice, now I'm replacing it. I came online to find help fixing it, instead I'm reading reviews similar to my own experience but no resolutions.

When they say auto-off, they mean OFF

Kevin Courcey, Amazon
11 November 2008
  • Summary: This is a nice little iron to use (except for the water level problems noted in other reviews), however we ended up taking 2 of them back because the auto-off feature doesn't wake the iron back up when you want to use it again. You can shake it, move it, tilt it, fake iron with it..

Decent iron for infrequent ironing

Steve B, Amazon
2 November 2008
  • Summary: I bought this iron because the retailer did not have the B&D D2030. This F1050 is decent for infrequent ironing, but is very basic. If you have larger loads of clothes to iron on a regular basis, buy the D2030.

Don't Do It!

knj "ialwayslookcute", Amazon
17 July 2008
  • Summary: This iron is the worst! At first it was great, but after about 6 months the steam feature just about stopped working. Also, it is very hard to see how much water is in it due to the red water window.

  • Summary: I like the looks of this iron -- and it works really well. I've used it for several hours now and am pleased with its performance.
