My father bought the Rowenta locally and I tried it out. I'd been wanting an easy-to-use steamer so I checked Amazon. The Jiffy has gotten excellent reviews whereas the Rowenta has gotten ok reviews (most negatives are about durability.) I ordered the Jiffy and borrowed my Dad's so I could compare them.
First let me say that I want a quick and easy steamer mostly to get wrinkles out of Tshirts, shorts, jeans,button-downs etc that I didn't take out of the dryer quick enough. I usually will not be steaming full suits,etc.
The Rowenta is incredibly quick to heat up and start steaming. It literally takes about 30 seconds.
The Jiffy takes about 3 minutes. That's still fast but if you're in a really big rush...
When the Rowenta is heated up it basically just sits idle. I don't think it's losing any water while idle because there's no steam coming out. When the Jiffy is heated up the water is literally boiling inside. You can see and hear it boiling. It constantly releases steam. The bad part about this is if you need to pause for a bit (answer phone, do something else...) then the water continues to get used up. In my case it was pumping out hot steam heating up the bathroom and fogging up the mirror. This brings me to one of the bigger complaints about the Rowenta-the water capacity. The Rowenta definitely holds less water than the Jiffy but I found the Rowenta to be more real-world convenient. 1) because it only releases steam only when you need it (you push the button) and 2) because the Rowenta heats up so fast the capacity isn't much of an issue.
Also, the Jiffy gets hot on the exterior-real hot. So it's not that easy to refill quickly because you have to be careful not to burn yourself.Read more ›
I steam all types of clothing from t shirts to suits. I travel a lot and want a unit that is portable. This like the conair is one of the larger units to transport. The steam is not hot enough to get wrikles out of clothing which has been packed awhile. WHile suits are pretty think and I will give a portable steamer a break on that , my tops are not anything too thick since I live in AZ. Rowetta did not impress me what so ever in this area.
It also bears mentioning that I have tried 6 or 7 different steamers ranging from full size to travel. The Rowetta full size steamer failed to impress me and had a very short life span before dying all together. Again the production of a steam hot enough to get out the wrinkles on the full size steamer was an issue, time of heat up was long, inconsisent steam stream was also an issue.
Conair full size out performed the full size rowetta and American Tourister portable outperformed both conair and rowetta portable.
This works best on items that don't do well with an iron (e.g. silk, rayons, polyester, suits that need refreshening, fragile fabrics, beaded fabrics). Now if you plan to get a the same crisp, starched look with a cotton shirt that you would get with an iron - this product is not the right product (no steamer is designed to do this).
CONS: The water reservior is small, so you'll only get about 3 garmets per refill. If you use the attachments, after three refills, the water from the steam gets trapped inside the attachments and starts dripping on you - the water is HOT and makes a wet mess everywhere. Workaround - don't use the attachments (I've been able to go throught about a dozen items at a time with no problems).
