Summary: Purchased for small quilt blocks and applique projects & it is great - gives me the heat needed and the lightweight compact design makes it easy to take to quilt group. It is a great addition to my sewing room - if you are a quilter and have struggled to find the perfect compact iron - this is it!
I really like this iron and have loved all of my Rowenta ...

Summary: I really like this iron and have loved all of my Rowenta irons. However, you fill the handle for steam on this iron and it leaks horribly. I have looked for a fill to mark and there isn't any. I have read the outside of the box and the instruction pamphlet....still nothing telling how far to fill.
Summary: I wish I had good to say about this little iron. Seem like it gets hot enough, steams well but the integrity of the handle lacks quality. This iron is built to hold up but the Handle breaks easily. I am careful with my things, but the handle on this is very unstable.
Summary: I just broke my second one in three months. It was a great iron until my first one stopped working. I ran out to replace it immediately and after 4-5 weeks of use the handle broke although the iron itself still works. Not heavy use either.
Summary: After reading several reviews I rolled the dice and purchased the Rowenta travel Iron. The iron head is solid for the compact size, the plastic handle however, seems cheap and looks like an after thought to the otherwise robust design.
