Summary: The second time I used the Rowenta Steambrush DA-65, about halfway through my ironing job, a blue flame shot out the base of it, accompanied by a sparking sound, then the pop of a circuit breaker somewhere in the house, followed by a wisp of smoke and the scent of ozone. And that was the end of that. The Rowenta had a remarkably short and unproductive life; a most unimpressive product.
Summary: They sent me a used one, which I maybe wouldn't mind, but I paid for a new one. It's performance is about average. I e-mailed them twice about it, and they told me to send it back, but I didn't want to be out the shipping costs. I just think they should be honest about what they are selling.
Summary: I picked this up at a discount store, thinking I got a great deal. I immediately checked reviews here when I got home, and became worried about the steamer's performance. I followed the directions exactly. Steamer didn't work on the first 15 primes of the steam button. I was holding the steamer vertically. My husband tried it horizontally, and it immediately steamed and kept working when turned vertical. It does work.
Summary: This Steam and Press worked great for a about a year then the steamer stopped working. You do need to follow the instructions, especially for initial use, to get it to work properly. It did spit out water with the steam but it worked well for clothing, silk, drapes etc. I have not tried cleaning it yet, as it is not designed like a regular sized steam iron, so I'm not sure if cleaning it will work. I'll give it a try.
Summary: I have been using this iron for over 4 yrs and finally wore it out. Could not live without it and ordered it again. I am a quilt teacher and take it to classes with me and it always does an excellent job for whatever project I am teaching. It gets good and hot for pressing all those seams that quilters make.
Summary: I purchased this steam brush product to take with me on a specific trip that involved packing a few skirts and dresses. The iron itself is a little heavier than I would have liked for traveling, and when attempting to use the product, I found that its performance was not as lickety-split as the ad promised. When at home, using my regular iron would be just as time efficient and the same amount of work. And as far as travel goes, it's not worth the extra weight.
Summary: I love this steam and press iron. I am a quilter and it is so nice to have it laying there right next to me to use to press my seams and not have to get up to use the iron. I would recommend it highly.
Summary: this is not my first Rowenta steamer it is a replacement for another one which I have had for years. It works graet and is fantastic for travel. Just take the clothes that have been wrinkled in travel hit them with a few bursts of steanm and your ready to go. A must for frequent travelers.
