Summary: We had a Rowenta Surfline Inox iron for about 15 years which we loved. My husband irons his own shirts so we both agree on this. After 15 years, it started to show it's age so I purchased the Power Duo. We loved the Surfline for it's incredible steam.
Summary: I bought the Rowenta Power Duo with vertical steam 4 or 5 years ago at a local fabric store with 40% off coupon. I figured they were the best so worth investment but was not all that impressed with it. I thought it would be so different than any other iron I had had before.
Summary: After deciding against the Intra-Steam found on the Rowenta Perfect (I kept getting steam burns on my hands), I decided on the PowerDuo. This iron has a different sole plate than other Rowentas, and it doesn't glide as well.
Summary: Dont waste your money, this iron worked great in the beginning but with less than 6 months of using it and trust me we do not iron that often, this started dripping water. First noticed as I sat it upright to cool down and returned to find it sitting in a puddle of water.
Excellent - Don't know what the others are referring to

Summary: We have had our PowerDuo for a little over a year and love it. The iron heats up quickly and easily takes care of wrinkles. No problems with the steaming ability or any sort of residue. I would highly recommend this product.
