Summary: Works wonderfully! Steam is powerful enough to lift the iron off the board! No leaks, which often plague competitors. Yes, it is heavier than most but I like that since it ultimately means I have to apply less pressure which is great since I have weak grip due to neuropathy. The handle is perfect sized to fit comfortably in my hand for long sessions. I have no trouble telling when the reservoir is full, although have said this is a problem for them.
Summary: Wow, where do I start? Okay, no comments from the peanut gallery! I learned to do laundry by washing my clothes in the river and heating irons in the fire and putting a towel or cloth over them to iron them. I can hear you snickering ... you know who you are! :-) This is my third Rowenta iron over the years. They didn't break, they just made better models. My daughter has my last one and it's like new.
Powerful and mighty.. No long waiting time to preheat. perfect for that early mornings rush.

Summary: I am familiar with quite a few steam irons as I have had some models from Rowenta in the past. While they were all great. This one has some excellent features which ranks it above. 1) It takes like 3 min to get warmed up, so its perfect for your last minute iron needs. 2) Unlike other models it doesn't have a extra tank so it saves a lot of space as and makes it much more handy to grab and go.
Summary: In the past, I have only owned Black and Decker, Proctor Silex or Sunbeam irons. I thought that the great reviews about Rowenta irons were a "bunch of hype." In addition, the Rowenta irons were considerably more expensive that the irons that I previously owned. After purchasing and using the Rowenta DW8080 Pro Master Steam Iron, I now stand corrected. Now, I have to admit this to my sister - UGGHHH. PROS: 1. Sturdy and well-built. 2.
Summary: Great product. We had to replace an older Rowenta Steam Iron that would not stay on (switch broken). This iron is nice, there are plenty of steam jets; the nose width makes the iron very agile, easy to get into small places. I would like to see the steam control have better adjustment over steam variability, so you could adjust from max steam to no steam with ease. The price was right, its a good product, would purchase this again.
