Summary: I saved up to buy this iron. I should have gone out to eat instead. I can get two things ironed before it runs out of steam. It os cumbersome and no better than the cheapest iron at Dollar store. Maybe a door stop is in its future.......
Summary: The iron just did not preform as well as their less expensive model, the one with the cork covered handle. Took too many passes of the iron to remove wrinkles, iron itself just too lightweight.
Summary: I've just used this iron 3 or 4 times now, but so far it's been great. Loads of steam, pretty quick heat-up, no problems at all. It definitely makes ironing lots easier and faster than a regular iron. I'm very happy with the purchase.
Summary: I purchased this steam station two months ago and I am happy to say it is worth the extra cost of your typical steam iron. It produces more steam than any steam iron and that steam in continuous. I have not had any problems with spitting. I also don't have to clean the ironing plate like I did with my old iron. The manual calls for 100% tap water, or 50% tap water + 50% distilled water if you live in a hard water area (which I do, in Kentucky).
Summary: It saves me tons of time since I iron quite a bit, I just like to see my family's clothes pressed. I was in Europe this summer and I came across one of them and I had to have one, so glad Amazon was able to fulfill my wish. I have used the iron everyday since I have purchased it and It works great.
Summary: Had to get a new iron when we moved from the UK to the US. I had a steam generating iron in the UK which I loved and really wanted a similar one in the US. They are however a lot harder to find, although I still don't understand why?! Finally settled on this one, only to find it wasn't working when I got it out of the box. Returned it and bought a normal steam iron.
Summary: Several years ago, I purchased the Rowenta ProSteam Iron. It always spit and you had to clear the line before you began to iron or the item ironing would be doused with water spitting. The water reservoir began to leak. Since it was under warrantee, Rowenta replaced it. Received the replacement and its performance was the same - spitting, tank began to leak. I called Rowenta explained that it was a replacement and was doing the same thing as my first one.
Summary: I followed the directions for this iron to the letter....and no steam! The iron got hot, but didn't produce any noticeable steam. Also didn't like the buttons on the handle as they kept sticking. Alas, had to return this very expensive non-steam producing product. Amazon is awesome, though; got a complete refund.
