Pros Great blast of steam when it worked.
Cons Can't keep the iron on for more than a few seconds at a time.
Recommended it? No

My iron lasted exactly 62 days!! My iron turns off seconds after plugging it in. No ammount of shaking and plugging and unplugging helps. When I tried to return it to the store, their policy was 60 days for returns...no exceptions. I called for service and was told to ship it to New York at my... Read full review »

Pros There is nothing good about this iron.
Cons This iron maybe could be sold for junk because that is exactly what it is.
Recommended it? No

I purchased this iron and was very disappointed with my purchase.  The iron will only heat up one time, and the remaining time the red auto shut off light flashes.  According to the instructions you are to gently shake the iron and it will leave the auto shut off mode. ... Read full review »

Pros Nice weight. Does a good job when it is on.
Cons continually shuts down and needs to be unplugged/plugged back in to operate. Shaking...
Recommended it? No

Loved the iron when I bought it and now I hate it. After 18 months of use the iron will not stay turned and shuts itself off during ironing. The only way to get it back on is to unplug it, wait a few seconds, and plug it back in. Shaking the iron as directed does not work. Read full review »

Pros works well, good price, nifty automatic retractable cord
Cons made in China
Recommended it? Yes

I purchased my first Rowenta iron about five years ago, and it was by far the best iron I have ever used. Using the settings correctly, I never burned or damaged any of my clothing, it heated up quickly, and the steam action was incredible, particularly with an extra blast of steam at the top. When...

Pros Good steam action
Cons Short product life - doesn't hold up.

I received this as a gift and it quit working within a couple months. Returned for a replacement, it had the same problem. Cord wouldn't retract, and wouldn't warm up - at all! Bought top of line professional one and the electrical cord is fraying. Bought $60 model for kids and plastic steam button... Read full review »

Pros Effective indeed, Excellent Safety Features, Great Performance
Cons None.
Recommended it? Yes

Ironing is not my forte, but I'm learning it is an essential piece of equipment to have in the laundry room. Originally we used a Christmas gift returned for store credit to purchase this from Kohl's for $69.99. We normally would not spend this kind of money, but because it was store credit and...
