By Rebecca of Amazon HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 29, 2001
My earliest memories of ironing goes back to the days of ironing napkins for my mother and helping with the ironing as a teenager. Lately, I am in charge of the work shirt ironing. With my last iron, I had to spray all the clothes with a mist of water, leaving lots of water all over the carpet. While it most likely doesn't hurt the carpet, it was annoying.

When my old iron went to iron heaven, I decided to stop by Amazon and find out what was rated the best. The Rowenta seemed well loved by most. I had used one before and did like how it ironed because it seemed to have a good steam option and really did get out the wrinkles.

My husband was a bit surprised I would be willing to spend more than $25 for an iron, but I told him the Amazon reviewers had convinced me this was the one!

So, I just ironed all his shirts and he was very impressed. Absolutely no wrinkles left. The airglide stainless steel soleplate just literally glides over the fabric. The steam is continuous unless you turn it off. I only noticed a tiny bit of water spit out when I overfilled it once or left it sitting horizontally and it cooled slightly. I also made the mistake of using some tap water which has softener in it. Later, I learned that you should not use water which has salt in it. I then started to use bottled water and found it never spit after I changed over to that water.

Most likely, other reviewers made the same mistake I did. They do say never to use distilled water. So, just bottled drinking water would work or water without salt. Using the bottled water will also prevent stains on your clothes that can develop from iron in the water. I did fill the unit over three times since I was ironing for over an hour.

Since I'd been using the same iron for many years, I chose this Rowenta iron for my bridal registry list, but when my old iron died, I went out and bought it myself! I was a little wary after reading some reviews that said the iron tends to spit and leak, but because the positive reviews were so glowing, I decided to take a chance with it anyway. However, I very carefully read the instructions and made sure to follow their recommendations, which included using cheap bottled spring water and allowing the iron to heat fully before using on the steam setting. The instructions also recommended testing the iron's steam function on an old towel prior to using it on clothes, and I'm glad I did, because there was some initial brownish residue.
That being said, once I followed all of the above steps, I had no problems with the iron. It glided easily over clothes and did a very good job getting out wrinkles, although I still found starch to be useful on 100% cotton items. Also, I found that the spray of water worked better to remove wrinkles than the burst of steam function; in addition, the latter used up a lot of water in the tank, which I had to refill twice to iron a total of 8 dress shirts in about an hour. One other small negative was that although the cord did not tangle, I did find it getting in the way at times as another review had mentioned. Overall, however, I was very happy with the performance of this iron, as it did a nice job on clothes and was easy to use.

This is how I stopped the leaking. You have to fill it very carefully. Trickle the water in from a spouted liquid-measuring cup so you can control the rate of flow, and don't let any water accumulate in the funnel around the water hole while you pour. Think of it as a drain, and the idea is not to pour water any faster than it can go right down without backing up. As long as I fill it like this, the iron never leaks. If I overfill the funnel, it leaks. I fix that by draining the iron and refilling it again carefully. Then it stops leaking. I use plain cold tap water, and turn it on and off by pulling the plug. I don't wait for warmups either. These things may help the iron in the long run, but the source of the leaking is pouring in the water too fast.
Here's the cause. I pried off that whole front panel around the buttons and funnel and took a look. (Don't try this, but it snapped right back on with no problem.) That funnel is a separate piece, with a rubber o-ring seal. If you've ever fixed a faucet you know the problem is usually the o-rings. They wear out, and won't seal if they aren't seated properly, and usually have to be greased. Maybe you can't grease the ring on an iron. But I think what happens is that if water backs up in the funnel as you fill, some of it seeps through the o-ring into the body of the iron, that is, outside the tank. That's what leaks out, often discolored by lime or tarnish from the back of the metal sole. It's a bad design, but the user solution is to never let water accumulate in the funnel while you fill it, because if you do, and the o-ring is loose, it can leak through into the parts outside the water tank.
With the leaking problem solved, it's been a great tool.

I have the previous Powerglide. It sputtered from day one. I kept it because I needed it and I wanted a quality iron. I followed all instructions meticulously, the proper water, draining the iron, storing perfectly. It went from sputter to clothes destroyer. Periodically it would leak and the sputters left spots. My husband had to go to work yesterday with a shirt that looked like I threw a bucket of water on him. No more Rowenta! I'm looking for another brand.
