Summary: I have a B890. I use it every day to iron the sheets for our bed and breakfast. The Iron has a linen cover on the roller. This is a wearable/consumable item. I called Miele to get a replacement cover. They told me that they “no longer manufacturer this part”. Soooo I now have a very expensive door stop. I make your own judgment as to the value.
Summary: I love this iron. It's everything I thought it would be. Here's my beef. When I purchased the iron, on the website it said an extended warranty was available. I was never offered the warranty and no forms were sent me to avail myself of it. I finally wrote the seller and asked. I purchased the iron in February. Now it is early April and I'm being told it's too late. They are telling me that I had to purchase the warranty within 30 days!!
Summary: I originally reviewed this seller as unsatisfactory because I did not receive the item until a week after promised. I was forced to deal with the shipper which was not a good experience. This was all straightened out and the product was delivered yesterday. I love it and am so happy I decided to purchase. I also received a call from the seller apologizing for the delay and not being in contact with me. They even refunded a small portion of the purchase price....
Summary: So, I was thinking to myself, "Are you insane? Two G's for ironed sheets? Do you know how many times you could have the laundry do that for you?". Well, it turns out that the answer to that question is "Not so many". The local Martinizing will gladly launder and press a queen sized flat sheet and four pillow cases for $56.74. And you know what? For $56.74 they do an OK (not great) job. Tablecloths are similar but they charge by the square inch.
Summary: The price might let you shy away or at least think twice, but, promised -in the end you'll ask yourself why didn't we get this dream machine earlier! It's clearly a time and energy (sweat) saver, and the results are just convincing.
