Summary: Good iron, strong steamer... but breaks easily. The rotary section button broke after less than a year of normal, gentle use. This is not what I expect from one of the most expensive home iron on the market.
Summary: Was leaking at purchase. Discussed with a Rowenta retailer. Told me they have problems with Rowenta irons all the time. So I returned it. My previous Rowenta iron died in 4 years. Nice when it works, but lacks the durability you expect of a premium product.
