Summary: I bought this iron to replace one that started to leak and overall was not working well. I have never had any experience with the Rowenta brand but after doing some research I found out that they are one of the top brands when it comes to irons.
Summary: Prior to buying this iron, I read other reviews but dismissed them. I rationalized that the reviews were, for the most part, several months old and that the manufacturer was aware of the product flaws and was ethical and honest enough to fix them. This is from me!
Summary: The 1st time I used it, it kept shutting off on me. I would have to unplug it & plug it back in several times to do my ironing . I felt there was something that wasn't right. I called customer service I was instructed to send it in for repairs.

Summary: First of all, the photo does not show that this iron is a beast. Yes, it is bigger and heavier than my last Rowenta. If you are looking for a light iron do not buy this unit. It does a great job, is well constructed and looks great. The function controls are easy to use and intuitive. Enjoy!
Summary: I wasn't going to buy another Rowenta, but the reviews were so good on this one, I wanted to see for myself. I probably paid too much for this iron, but I've been very happy with it. It doesn't leak like its Rowenta predecessor.
The cord is problematic (and the iron may stop working)

Summary: First, I rarely use this iron; it is my wife's favorite, she really loves it. She thinks it is the best she has ever had (previously another Rowenta, and a Black & Decker) but after two years of use it quit. All of a sudden it stopped heating.
Summary: OK, I admit it - I purchased this iron at Costco for $69. My Oliso, which I really like, is not getting up to temperature, so when I saw the Rowenta, I purchased it. I've only had it for a few weeks but so far, I really like it: Excellent steam, very pointy, which means you can get into tight spaces...
This iron makes a not too fun job more enjoyable...

Summary: I wasn't too pleased when my well-used iron finally gave out, and did not look forward to the thought of spending time deciding what a good replacement would be. Knowing that while ironing may be a bit less than exciting, it indeed was not going to get accomplished without a new iron so, I did the...
Summary: The iron is much too heavy to use comfortably. Otherwise, it is very efficient to use. I am elderly and so am unable to lift a weight such as this without discomfort from arthritis. Trust me when I say many people my age (80) are in the same situation.
