Rowenta First Class Travel Iron DA-1560

Jessie Bahrey, REVIEW STREAM
7 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I detest traveling and finding a poor quality iron in my hotel room if I have to go to an important meeting or function where I need to look professional and put-together. I don’t always stay in five-star hotels, but it seems to me that no matter how nice the hotel is, the quality of the iron varies widely. I got so tired of trying to iron my clothes with dirty, old and non-functioning irons while traveling that I went look for a traveling iron .

Rowenta DA1560- terrible iron

Barb Miller, Amazon
24 November 2013
  • 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 didn't work. This model is made in China, it could be part of the reason. Some of the bigger Rowenta's are made in Germany still.

Wow!

  • 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. There are several sets of heat to choose from by a twist of the dial. The handle folds down for easy storage in its own compact storage bag. I liked it so much I sent it with my sister to use with her European trip.

believe the negative reviews

zz96sr, Amazon

  • Summary: I chose to ignore the negative reviews AND the reviews of the group I sew/quilt with on a weekly basis. I bought this iron the end of July. I have plugged it in perhaps four times since then. Yesterday I plugged it in. It immediately began snapping and then smoking (not steam). It smelled like burning electrical wiring and the smoke increased. Needless to say I unplugged it. Sad and a wasted of money.

Short Shelf Life

patcho, Amazon

  • Summary: Good points about this iron first: It is very compact, with a handle that folds in on itself and has its own carrying bag. Fits very easily in a suitcase. For the size, had excellent heat and a good amount of steam--I actually used this iron over a regularly sized cheap hotel iron that had less holes. In that sense, it's hard to imagine a smaller iron with this much power. I was very satisfied with this purchase at first.

The Perfect Iron

Sandy the sewing gal, ABT Electronics
8 July 2013
  • Summary: It irons the smallest Barbie Doll Dress, to the triple extra large dress, pants, shirts, it irons wrinkles out in one glide and gets into the tiny places like no other iron I've used, and believe me, I've used a lot!
  • Pros: Affordable, Cute, Easy to Use, Efficient, Perfection, Powerful, Simple Instructions

THE travel iron

DN, Amazon
14 June 2013
  • Summary: Works great, upright steam is appreciated on my wrinkled suit. I also travel overseas so the 110 to 220 at the flip of a switch is appreciated. April 1, 2014 update. It still works great and it's been to Lithuania, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, various U.S. states in checked baggage (canvas wheeled bag)... and no issues. Perhaps the complaints about it breaking must be due to mishandling? You just need to pack it in the center of your bag and surround it with clothes.

This little Rowenta put my full size Black and Decker iron to shame!

M. Walker, Amazon
2 June 2013
  • Summary: I absolutely love this iron! Had it a month now and use it daily for my quilting. I bought it for it's compact size to press seams as I piece quilt tops. I found myself using it for everything else as well. It generates lots of steam and gets nice and hot! Heats up quickly and really knocks out those wrinkles quick with all those little steam holes!

Great little iron for quilting trips!

  • Summary: This iron gets very hot and presses those seams down really good. Like better that those small versions! It's got just enough heaviness to iron your fabrics.
