It popped and smoked, now it's dead... and it's happened twice!

Summary: I purchased my first Rowenta Travel Iron last May to use while sewing. It appealed to me because of it's small size, the temperature was also much better than a Taurus iron I had before, although it seemed to produce way more steam than my Rowenta Eco Intelligence.
Summary: I purchased this iron December 3, 2013 (according to the Amazon page I used for writing this review). This iron has traveled with me, since that day, for 5 trips to Europe, 2 trips to Asia, a trip to Brazil, a trip to Mexico and 3 trips inside the US.
Summary: If it were possible to give this no stars, I would. I bought this iron last November and the second time I used it, the iron began to crackle, pop, and smoke. It was fortunate I was there and could unplug it before it actually caught on fire. Unbelievably poor quality control and design by Rowenta.
Summary: I just wanted to let others know that I have used a Rowenta travel iron for years. The first one lasted for years until I broke the handle. My daughter bought me a new one for Xmas and I used it for a total of 1/2 hr. and it started sputtering inside and the iron went cold.
Unreliable, burnt up after minimal use; horrible customer service

Summary: Rowenta's products have terribly deteriorated. They used to be wonderful but after barely using it, it quite literally burned up within seconds of plugging it in. Calling Rowenta customer service was an experience I do not recommend. Save your money and buy another brand.
Summary: I waited a long time to purchase the right travel iron and when I received a gift certificate for my birthday. I knew just what I wanted to buy, a Rowenta DA1560 Travel Iron. I took this Rowenta DA1560 Travel Iron with me to a quilt retreat. It was the first time I used it.
Summary: I bought this model iron - Rowenta DA1560 3 times-they got hot, but NONE of them steamed horizontally. I called Rowenta, they were no help, they suggested I buy one from another retailer, saying Amazon or Joann Fabrics may have not had the newest model -- that is ridiculous - right out the box it...
Summary: For a small travel iron this one packs a huge punch. I took it to Europe and used it daily. There is room for an adequate amount of water in the reservoir if you prefer to use the steam or spray setting . It isn't leaky either if it tips over, I found out.
