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:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
We were never really happy with its performance, but the heater stopped fully heating the water within a few months, and it got worse month to month even with self-cleaning. It is effectively dead. Since we were never really happy we won't return it for repairs. $50 wasted.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
