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. After you're finished using the Jiffy it's too hot to put away. You have to leave it and let it cool down. When you're steaming with the Jiffy it's also easy to burn your fingers with the steam. If you don't keep it perfectly upright it leaks easily and the drops really burn you. If you get yourself with the steam you say, "OW!". If you get yourself with the drops you say, "OW S%&*!!, son of a...!!"
The Rowenta doesn't get very hot on the exterior. If you steam your fingers it doesn't really hurt. I also made a dumb mistake when first trying the Rowenta. I left it plugged in lying on top of some clothing for a couple hours. Of course I don't recommend this but nonetheless it wasn't that hot and the clothes it was lying on were in no apparent danger of burning. I believe you're supposed to try and keep them both upright while steaming but sometimes you want to turn it to reach a spot. I don't recall the Rowenta leaking when I did that. If it did, it wasn't hot enough for me to remember.
I'm sure many people consider the hotter steam of the Jiffy to be a plus over Rowenta but I didn't find this to be the case. Yes the Jiffy is hotter but it just 'boils' steam out of the openings. The Rowenta is less hot but it 'blasts' the steam out when you push the button. The blasting effect seemed to almost, but not entirely, make up for the difference in heat. Also, the extra heat of the Jiffy made the clothing soggy so if you touched a part that you'd already steamed it would create new wrinkles. Touching the parts that you already steamed with the Rowenta didn't really seem to create new wrinkles. I used both steamers on the same 3 pieces of clothing for about the same amount of time. I used the Rowenta on one side and the Jiffy on the other. I didn't tell my wife which was which and asked her which looked better. They were all basically too close to compare.
I have a toddler so there was definitely a safety issue for me. If she were to pull the cord and pull the Jiffy down on herself while on( or even 5-10 mins after you've unplugged it)she could be seriously injured and scarred. If she were to pull the Rowenta down it probably wouldn't be a big issue.
So I ordered a Rowenta for myself and am sending the Jiffy back. I'm not saying the Jiffy is a bad piece of equipment, it just isn't quick and easy like the Rowenta. I feel as if I needed something that performs like the Jiffy I'd rather just get an upright steamer.
In summary, the Rowenta is safer, quicker, and easier-- for my purposes anyway. It's also cheaper. Only time will tell about the durability.
I found this product working best with silk, modal and other non natural fabrics that do not require the pressing look. For example, this will take the big wrinkles out of linen but won't make the linen look flat since linen is a naturally wrinkly fabric. I find this steamer extremely difficult when working with thicker cotton. It won't even take out a folding crease. It only works on thin cotton or cotton blends. Again, it only gives cotton a wrink-less look not wrinkle free. With that said, collars, cuffs and even lapels of a blazer is difficult to rely on this little machine. I do like to use this on silk items. It takes out your daily wearing wrinkles and folding/creasing wrinkles of new silks. It works extremely fast on the highest setting. So to summarize, it's best for more casual styled cloth or really anything with a softer fabric. If you have dresses, shirts, pants or anything made with stiff thicker cotton, this wont work.
The other thing i really dont like about this product is when i press the steam button, the button gets extremely hot. I have to stop from time to time to let the button cool down before i start again. It's also better when you hang cloth at your own height. I tried to hang my cloth on the shower curtain bar and the hot water/steam drips down onto my hands/arms. So just watch out when you use it b/c not 100% of the water gets vaporized into steam.
For the price and what it does, it's good enough for the price.
