I had one for many years and loved it
Before receiving the Rowenta Iron I was using a basic iron I got when I had just moved out of my parents house. The Rowenta is leaps and bounds better than anything else I have tried. It was simple to use and my clothes looked perfectly pressed after using it. I love the steam feature as that helped me keep my husbands work clothes nice without having to send them out. I also was able to steam formal dresses for myself. My kids school uniforms are so much easier to keep nice with the Rowenta. I can not imagine not having this iron.

Before buying this awesome iron, I had assumed all irons were the same. No, my friend, they are not. What I found to be the most amazing feature of the Rowenta DW9080 Iron with Auto Shut-off is the automatic shut off feature. As a busy mom or busy dad, small features like this makes a huge difference. I tend to sit the iron down and try to really quickly tend to the kids but then you forget that you've managed to leave the iron on, well with this really safe feature, you're covered and safe! On top of this feature, the Rowenta DW9080 Iron with Auto Shut-off heats up very quickly. It won't take seven or eight minutes to heat up and even better, it cools off just as quickly. This way, you save a lot of time when ironing everyone's clothes. It's also great for ironing heavy duty thick items like blankets, winter coats and jackets and even certain thick upholstery pieces. This is one iron that is well worth the money spent.
The iron lasted 4 months before it began steaming above the sole plate and causing burns. It dripped through every orifice often staining clothes. It was not damaged in anyway and the use directions were followed to the letter. The only avenue for a return was for repair and that required shipping it to Germany which constituted no return at all! Performance When it worked it worked very well. It is well balanced and cool to the touch until it starts to leak. Safety I have steam burns from when the steam was miss directed. Durability Please note the return policy on this iron. For the price this should last a lifetime and it didn't make it for 4 months. It was not dropped or damaged in any way and the directions were followed to the letter. You must return it to Germany! Let's just say there is no return policy! Design The design should include durability.
I really hate housework of all kinds, and the one thing I am the absolute coolest to is the ironing. I never can seem to get the clothes to look the way my mother could with an iron--she is kind of an artist in that regard--and it seems like a lot of work for very little result, especially with the sloppy look that seems to be in nowadays. The Rowenta does provide an bit of an improvement in my pressing and creasing. It looks sharp, and the steam is released just the way I like it with a clever push button. I also feel like I am using a high tech tool instead of a millstone to drudgery. Performance Maybe I should give it five stars, but irons tend to be alike in performance. Safety The house hasn't burned down yet. Has auto shut-off, too. Ease of Cleaning Just don't use hard water! Easy to wipe clean. Ease of Use Fill it and go, just like a car. Durability It does have some small internal parts that may prove to be its Achilles heel. Design This really isn't bad looking for a clunky wedge.
After being fed up with leaky, sticky irons, I decided to splurge on a "good" iron. So worth it! This is one of those rare products that you wish you had found out about a long time ago. It's sturdy, it's heavy, it has steam holes right up to the very edges of the iron, as well as a sharp "nose" that lets you get between button holes. This will cut down on your housework and ironing time, I promise! Performance Best iron I've ever used, hands down. Safety Auto-shutoff is made for people like me. Ease of Use This is a dream. I'm actually embarrassed to admit that it makes ironing pleasurable. Durability No more leaks, nice and heavy. Design I love that this gets into all the little nooks of the clothes, but honestly, the steam pressure is so good that I sometimes just give one more blast of steam with the clothes on the hanger--does the trick!
Forced steam by the push of a button workd great to get rid of wrinkles and creases easily. It is bigger than most irons but makes for speedy and effecient ironing. The display indicates in words so you easily know what fabric setting you have it on. Performance Forced steam button and bigger than average deisgn makes ironing easy and effecient. It tells you in words, such as cotton or linen, so you are certain that the iron is at the right heat setting for the fabric you are ironing. Safety A wonderful safety feature is the Auto shut off button blinks and does not go off until the iron is unplugged from the outlet. Ease of Cleaning It is important to keep the water chamber empty when not using. Ease of Use It is very easy to add water to the iron before each use. The water container has a thin water spout that you can pour water into. The hardest part is making sure that the correct type of water is used. Bottled Spring Water is best is recomended. Distilled water and filtered water is not recommended and may harm the iron. It may be necessary to buy some water specifically for use in your iron. Using the wrong water may casue damage to the iron. Durability Assuming that you use the correct water, because the iron is heavier than most it feels substantial and if properly cared for, for example, using the correct water and draining the water containment when not in use, this iron is durable enough to last for many years. Design Larger design, automatic turn off, forced steam air, autmoatic fabric heat settings make this iron top of the line for the user and results achieved in ironong results.
I've been using this iron for years. It smooths the wrinkles in my dress shirts and dress pants. I believe ironing is a very essential chore for professional men and women, so if you were to pick an iron at the store, I'd choose Rowenta for its ease of use. Also, I think it's a German brand.
Amazing product. Well worth the money. Great investment. I love how the iron is heavier than others, therefore notneeding to use force to make creases in the clothes. I absolutly recomment this iron! I gifted several of these already. My mom especially LOVES is too.
I have been owning this iron for almost 2 months now and I would say that this is the best iron that I have ever used. Love this. The design is great. I iron all my silk sarees with this and I have never had any burns in the saree (even though the fabric is very delicate to iron).
