Comment:
Another year, another iron. I purchased the Rowenta DW2070 model in 9/2013. Today, a mere 18 months later, it poured brown water onto the white shirt I was ironing, and started making a loud, vibrating noise (very much like hair clippers). In my 50 years of ironing, I have never seen or heard anything like this. Despite the fact that I have used the water recommended by the manufacturer, emptied it out after every use, stored it properly, used the self-clean feature regularly, it's no longer useable. Of course, the warranty is for one year. Today, I will buy a basic, inexpensive iron--not Rowenta. It may not last any longer, but I'll have wasted less money when it has to be replaced.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I am a quilter so I have daily use of an iron. At first it worked wonders. Then all at once it started to spill water on the ironing board. Now it's a mess of hot water and I wrecked one of my boards that I had to throw the board away. Not to mention, it even leaked on my sewing machine constantly. With hot water spilling all over and plugged in, I don't feel safe. After reporting to the company, we came away empty. They acted like we don't know how to use an iron. We are in our late 60's and have been ironing a long time. The consumer service was a waste of time.<br /><br />We are going back to Black and Decker irons and hope to have better luck. We will never buy another Rowenta nor recommend it to others.
How long have you owned it:

Has not worked right since day one. Can only iron two or three things before it shuts it self down. Time to buy a new iron and it won't be a Rowenta!
