Comments about Rowenta White Pressure Iron And Steamer:
Good Iron but expensive. This is my second one. The first only lasted about a year. There is a critical little green washer that wears out easily from the steam. Then they make you pay $5.00 to replace it. Something that must cost them nor more than a few pennies. There is now water window so you have to be careful when filling the tank. It makes great steam but be careful to empty it each time or it will wear out and possible cause the water to get dark. Personally we feel it's way too expensive for what it is but it's sturdy. That is if the valve and washer don't wear out. It will be expensive to repair so getting a new one was cheaper. This one is lighter weight than the last one but if it breaks down in a year I will never go with Rowenta again. ABT is great though.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Service and delivery comments:
delivery promptarrived in excellent condition
By Kathy the quilter

This steam iron is a great tool for quilting, sewing, everyday ironing - I used it to press my curtain's pleats back into factory shape. It is heavy and solid. Easy to use - but the steam cord does feel warm. Suggest you use a stand-alone wall plug-in, as the steamer uses considerable current. Can be used as a dry iron, but setting must be set lower. Glad I bought it.

About Me Other
This is my second pressure iron and steamer. I'm still getting to know the product, but am very impressed by its ease of use. It succeeds one that was 20 years of age and is lighter as well as less complicated in that it uses tap rather than distilled water.However, the accompanying handbook/instructions could use a little more detail.

Not as good as it should be
By Gail in Western WA

About Me Crafter, Homeowner, Housekeeper, Parent, Quilter, Sewist
The steam generator style of iron is perfect for sewists/quilters who spend all day at the machine and need to press frequently. You never have to fill the iron; since it is a sealed system the water doesn't evaporate. The iron doesn't weigh as much since the water isn't stored in it. However! This replacement for my 13 year-old Rowenta Steam Generator is certainly not working as well as expected or as well as the old one. The only problem they share is that the soleplate doesn't get as hot as a regular iron; you almost have to use the steam continuously to get cotton, linen, etc., properly pressed. This one spits water almost continuously when the steam trigger is pressed; you can hear the excess water boiling off behind the soleplate; and the steam volume dial produces very little difference in steam volume once you are past the 1/4 setting. I'm Very Disappointed in Rowenta. I would easily have purchased the next model up, but didn't because of its poor reviews. Too bad this one seems to have many of the same faults.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
