I just wanted to leave a review for this AWESOME Iron I purchased more than 4 years ago, but it still operates as if it were brand new! The Rowenta Perfect DX9800 is the best iron I have purchased in my lifetime, and I have been on the earth around 40 years thus far. It has all of the settings I need from an iron and then some to make crisp pleats as well as clean presses on all of my dress shirts. It has a very powerful steam burst that can be adjusted to be less powerful, yet still administer a nice amount of steam to deplete the wrinkles. I got this iron on sale but had always heard great things about the Rowenta name and having owned this for over four years now, I must say that I would certainly buy another Rowenta iron should the need ever arise in the future. Being made in West Germany, where engineering seems to be a high priority, I am confident that this company knows what they are doing and do not produce products that will break sown anytime soon, rather they should last over ten years or more from my experience thus far. Feel good about purchasing a Rowenta, especially the Perfect DX 9800!!!
