My two cents: its been very effective and reliable for me :)
It delievers a good amount of steam for stubborn wrinkles and glides over fabric with ease.
It is heavier than the irons I have used. The weight reminds me more of the iron I used to use when I lived at home 20+ yrs ago (minus the scarey fabric covered cord and scorch marks LOL). It also shuts off automatically when left standing for a certain amount of time and I love that it heats up so quickly.
I do have to put water in it pretty frequently even with the large reservoir, but that is minor to me. There is some water splatter but then it is not that much and I have seen it far worse with more expensive irons. I am hoping this iron lasts for a good long time because I love the way it performs!!!!
Though I feel I'm being ripped off, I cannot conceive of having to iron with anything else so I am forced to buy yet another one. As they say third times the charm, so my fingers as crossed.
August 14, 2014 Update
Third time is apparently the charm. 4 years and counting and it is still working like it did when it was new.
Except one thing: for my use (2-3 times a week), a Rowenta iron just doesn't last. Three $60-ish irons in five years? You get NO inclination that it's going on the fritz, except, one time, you'll need to iron something, you'll plug it in, and it won't heat up.
I treat my irons with great respect, as these babies cost double what a cheapie iron costs. But today was the last straw. No more Rowenta irons for me. I'm going with a cheapie with a great rating. Looks like a Panasonic for me.
The Rowenta is simple to use.
I just select the material and choose steam or no steam. The iron does everything else automatically. My last iron (not a Rowenta) burned every shiny or silky material. The Rowenta gets the wrinkles out without difficulty and doesn't burn anything. Only negative is that the iron is a bit heavy. But that could be a good way to exercise my forearm.
