Comment:
This iron is terrific! It's very hot, glides easily, and heats up quickly. The 3-way auto-off sensors are a great safety feature.<br /><br />The only thing people seem to need to know is that Rowenta irons require SPRING WATER in their tanks. Tap water is often too hard (too many minerals and that causes dripping, spitting, leaking) and softened or distilled water can be a problem too (not enough or no minerals to conduct electricy to make the fill sensor work.) I've always used spring water and never, ever had a problem with spitting, dripping, or discolored water when I iron.

Best Uses
Comment:
Use for daily ironing, cotton shirts, blouses, khaki slacks and skirts.<br /><br />When new, heated and did a good job. After less than a year, would not provide steam other than on highest setting. Then, would turn off while ironing after fully warmed up and would leak water, sometimes damaging clothes.

Comment:
As a healthcare professional, I have most of my clothing dry cleaned but purchased this iron after reviewing the recommendation from consumer reports for touching-up my button-down shirt sleeves and white coats. However similar to the other reviews listed, the iron frequently leaked water from the sole plate and base. With less than 6 months of light use, the iron now leaves both my ironing board and clothing (majority white) soaked with traces of brown stains. I would not recommend anyone purchase this product.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
