I bought this iron (through Macy's) after using cheaper irons. This Rowenta iron is the best iron I've EVER used! It is worth paying a little extra for this iron. The steam works great and ironing is much quicker with it...I love it!

My 20 year old iron finally died six months ago. Does anyone even remember when things were made to last? Anyway, I did a little research, and read some good things about a Rowenta, so I bought one of these. The cord rewinder stopped working within 2 weeks. It would wind up half of the cord, and then stop. Then it started leaking. Water started dripping down the cord. Then it was water mixed with some sort of oil (it did a great job of getting black drips on white shirts). I learned NOT to rewind the cord at all, because the chamber that held the cord was coated in some oily mixture that got on the cord and then got whatever it touched black!

I bought this item in late September of 2006. Today, it won't even turn on. The light is on but it won't get hot or even warm. I've done everything, replug it in, switch outlets, leave it unplugged for awhile and re-plug it in...nothing works. It's not quite 6 months old!

I'm going out to buy a new iron, and it WON'T be a Rowenta!

This iron seems to have a very sensitive safety switch. It easily activates if you have it in the storage position or if you are a slow ironier. If you learn to iron at a rapid pace the iron and its automatic steam capability will more than easily keep up with what you are doing and then comes the "Effective" part of it's name. I would rather have to pick up the pase of ironing than to burn a hole in my clothes or set the room on fire! A lot of people have commented on how the safety switch shuts the iron off and the standby light starts to blink and they have to shake it violently to get teh orange light indicating heating to turn back on. Well, this only breaks the iron and fustrates you so don't do it.

Great iron for those that figure out how to use it. Always use the 10% rule and you will be successful; you have to be 10% smarter than the equipment you use in order to use it!

The iron was great for approximately the warranty period. Ok, to be fair we did get a couple of months past warranty. Now it will not work and Customer Service says oh sorry no longer under warranty. So..., you think I will ask what do you think the cost of repair will be for an auto off function that is continuously engaged and they tell you we don't know you will need to contact the closest service center. The service center tells you by recording, over and over, how your call is important and that they are open conveniently enough at the time you are calling, but apparently being open doesn't include answering the telephone. What a let down. I am glad this is not a company that I own. If you purchase, I wish you better luck than I had with this product.

I have tried many irons in the past and this one irons fast and easy. BUT...the cord reel on it isn't the best. It squeeks like crazy when you pull the cord out to plug it in (not fun when you have a sleeping baby @ 6am)and the slide "button" that adjust the amount of steam doesn't stay where you put it. It's annoying b/c you turn it to the most amount of steam adjustment and all of a sudden it's right back to the total opposite end of the adjustments, therefore giving NO steam. Maybe it'll "Grease" itself up and be ok after we've used it more. Also, the automatic reel for the cord it's as good as it should be. It stops 1/2 way through winding it up. I need to self-feed it to finish the rest. It's worth it but I found it for the same price at Target so a return whould be easier.

This iron was a great product, even though I already had to replace the one I bought in December with this newer one. Now this one is doing the exact same thing - the auto-shut off button engages. Even though the iron is not sitting more than 15-20 seconds, just long enough to adjust the shirt or other item on the ironing board to continue ironing. We lose heat. We unplug it, it heats up again and shuts off promptly with the red light flashing. Unfortunately, I am going to buy a Black and Decker, GE, or whatever gives me longer than 3 months of service. I tried.

I purchased a Rowenta because of its reputation. At first, the iron was a dream come true and now it won't heat up, shuts off by itself, then I have to plug it in and unplug it several times during an ironing session to keep it warm. After research it on the internet, apparently this is common with Rowenta. They just stop working! And per all the reviews I read, Rowenta won't do a thing about it, this is the last time I spend $60 on an iron! Don't do it!

When this iron stays on, it works fine. However, it turns off on its own constantly - whether I'm in the middle of using it to iron or not - and it is very difficult to turn back on. The instructions say to shake it to get it to turn on, but I have to shake it very hard and for a long time, and sometimes even this does not work. Very disappointed, especially since Rowenta is supposed to be a good brand.

this is my 2nd Rowenta DX1900 iron - 1st was a xmas gift a long time ago - and it started leaking - ordered a new one just because I like it so much - especially the auto off!!!! 1st one might have started leaking because I never slid the lever over 2 dry when I filled it so making sure I do this time - I sew in the winter months constantly so use it ALL THE TIME then! Highly recommend this one!

After using the same iron I received as a shower gift over ten years ago I decided to upgrade. Wow, what a difference a better iron makes. Wrinkles disappear on the first swipe. Steam is everywhere. The iron just easily glides over the clothes. Cannot over-recommend Rowenta or this product, as it is just great. Worth the purchase.
