After ~10 tanks (which go much faster than I expected) of tap water I can say that this is a VERY good iron and will get your clothes looking good...but not as if they were done at the cleaners. Compared to my girlfriends extreme budget iron I can see a difference...but compared to my Mother's Rowenta iron(non-steam generator type)..I can tell little difference.
I took one star for the high cost and another due to the LONG waiting periods for the "steam generator" to generate steam, about ~10+ minutes when filled completely.
For your average user, save some $ and get a typical iron as it is much more convenient as well.
It does produce lots and lots of steam. More than earlier models of steam generators, and the water tank cap has been re-designed and is easier to open. It should be just the ticket for the seamstress and professional dressmaker.
Unfortunately this one has dimples on the bottom of the iron which is not always a good thing for the dressmaker because it tends to 'emboss' delicate fabrics unless special care is taken. Earlier models did not have these dimples.
This model also drips water along with the steam. This is the bane of -anyone- who uses an iron and was a problem for Rowenta in the '90s but they did fixed that problem in the late 90's. However, it's back now and in an expensive model. There are trouble shooting solutions in the owner's pamphlet for solving this problem but none seem to work 100% of the time, just occasionally and not for long.
I'll continue to use the iron. I like the abundance of steam and the fact that I can use it for some time without refilling it but I'm not happy that I have to cope with the dripping problem. Rowenta *can* do better!

I love my iron but again, it's the leaking thing. I keep the main part on a table of the same height as the ironing board. Read morePublished 10 months ago by CANDIDA
