Comments about Rowenta Iron with Auto Shut-off:
After wasting time with cheap irons that never get hot enough to iron cottons, and break after a year or two, I decided to try a Rowenta. I had heard that since they were made in Germany, they would last. I have also been told (not sure if it is true, but it seems to match what I've observed) that irons put out by American manufacturers are increasingly becoming cooler and cooler at their highest settings, because of Americans tendency to litigate when they are hurt by using an iron carelessly.
Regardless of all that, I do know that this iron gets much hotter. It is easier and quicker to iron cottons on the high setting because when you dampen them, the water in the clothes turns to steam and dries very quickly.
The auto shut-off is a bit of a hassle, but I really think it is worth having because I admit having a tendency to forget to unplug the iron. If the iron shuts off while I am using it, it heats back up very quickly. To me, it is a necessary evil, and it helps that the iron will heat back up in less than a minute, and I can get back to what I was doing.
