Summary: This is an awesome iron, probably the best I've had. I love the soleplate coating and the abundant, powerful steam. I prefer this iron compared to the Rowenta I had before this. Sadly, it looks to me like DeLonghi stopped making this.
Summary: Saw this iron in Good Housekeeping magazine and since my iron (Rowenta) needed replacing I thought I would try it. It has great steam and does a good job of ironing. My 4 year old granddaughter saw my iron and asked me what it was.
Summary: Best iron I've purchased in a number of years.. price is good. Frequent refills for steam use if I have to find a flaw at this time: but the steam settings work well. AGAIN new item ...time will tell.
Summary: Buying irons made by other companies was getting to be an annual event, due to overheating, automatic shut-off not working, water leaking, etc. So far the DeLonghi is working beautifully, and I use it several hours a day for my art quilting. I have high hopes . . . .
