  • Summary: I loved this iron until it stopped working after minimal use for 1 year. That being said, I'm giving Rowenta one more try with their German made pro version.

Not satisfied.

  • Summary: This product doesn't work as well as I thought it would. It doesn't appear to get as hot and the steam doesn't come out like I thought.

great when it works!!!

  • Summary: This is my second Rowenta iron. I do not think I will purchase any more. When it works it does a wonderful job. But, about 6 months into ownership it stops emitting steam. You have to shake it, unplug it and then it will start up again. Now, today it lights up but no heat. These use to be quality products, but something has changed in the design or ownership and they are sub par.

Good reliable iron

  • Summary: This is an excellent and reliable iron. Heats up quickly, steams just as necessary, is never too hot. (It could iron all by itself, but that's I guess too much to ask).

an iron that works !!!

Louise E. Blauvelt, Amazon
31 January 2011
  • Summary: Our previous iron was spitting and leaking. Our daughter has a Rowenta and highly recommended that we try one. So we now are the proud owners of a Rowenta which is definitely a cut above any other irons that we've used in the past. This iron heats up quickly, steams evenly, has an automatic turnoff feature if you happen to leave it on by mistake. This is an excellent product.

No complaints!

  • Summary: I used this iron at my parents house while visiting and fell in love with it. We had been using the typical cheap iron and I had no idea there was a difference. The wrinkles just melt away, even on knits. This was much less than I expected to pay as well! Would definitely buy again.

Rowenta Iron review

  • Summary: I love the iron. It doesn't drip, and the water container is plastic so I don't have to empty it after each use. It's great!!

great iron

Claire Levesque, Amazon
20 December 2009
  • Summary: I really love this iron although when I got it the box says DX1700 but the iron say DX1600. I would have sent it back except I was desperate as my old Rowenta had gone to the iron heaven after 8 years of hard labor. I really hope this iron lasts as long as I have had more irons over my 48 years of marriage till I got my first Rowenta. They are great irons.

No Germany - No Quality

S. Zimmer "PittsburghProud", Amazon
28 March 2009
  • Summary: This Rowenta model is a big comedown from Rowenta's previous quality. A previous DX1700 I owned lasted about 6 years with heavy usage. The replacement I have now is garbage. The first replacement DX1700 I brought home made strange noises from day one and fizzled out within a week. The second replacement has spit when the vents are wide open from day one and I only chose to keep it because of the hassle of another return.
