Love the iron, hate that you can't see the water level

Summary: This is my second Rowenta iron. I love the amount of steam and ease of use. I hate the fact that you are unable to see the water level. Also my iron is starting to leak as did my first iron. My iron is the Pro master 1700 W
Summary: I've never taken the time to write a review about a product ever. But I felt a duty to my fellow citizens to warn you about this iron. In short - DO NOT BUY THIS IRON. Not only is it the worst iron I've ever used, it's the worst product I've ever used.
Summary: After less than a year it's died. This thing was incredibly thirsty, but I put up with it because it did a decent job. For some reason the steam only seemed to work when the iron was vertical rather than horizontal, so I'd iron a piece of sheet and then stand the iron up and a massive jet of steam...
Summary: Have had 2 rowenta irons in my life and both have been disappointing. I have had this one for a couple of years and the auto off feature turns the iron off while ironing! Every 10 seconds the iron shuts off and has to be shaken vigorously to turn it back on.
Summary: This iron lasted about 3 years and then started having problems with the "auto shutoff feature" Contacted the folks at Rowenta and they said the parts associated with this feature were not available for replacement..........(I am an electrical engineer)......
Summary: I have always had very cheap irons so maybe I'm just easily impressed but this iron gets wrinkles out in one swipe. I have an IKEA sofa and have had to wash and iron the covers which are heavy cotton (they look like cream linen but feel like canvas, if that helps).
Summary: I purchased the Rowenta DX 1700 since I'd had 2 previous Rowenta irons. This model is poor in comparison to the ones I had before for several reasons. 1) The fill-hole for the water is very small. If you go too fast water spills to the side. It takes a long time to fill because of that.
Summary: I bought this iron less than 6 months ago and now it's totally dead. I'm glad I got it at a great price as I'm not out much money. This is the first time I ever went with Rowenta and probably the last.
