I confess. I bought the Rowenta Pro Compact Garment Steamer without doing much shopping around or research! *Gasp!* I was in Bed, Bath, and Beyond and decided to start looking for steamers. This was the nicest mid-sized one they had on display in comparison with Con-air and a few other lesser-known brands. It just so happened they were offering a rebate and sale that week so I got it for a good deal. The Rowenta Pro Compact Garment Steamer works well, although it takes a while to really get all the wrinkles from your clothes. My clothes were so crisp and beautiful when I was done. I actually didn't want to stop and was trying to find more clothes to steam. I steamed about 25 garments before the water ran out- it has a large water reservior. The only thing that scared me was a gurgling noise the water in the hose started to make when I was halfway through with the steaming, but after reading the directions, I found out it was condensation in the hose and that happens often. All in all, the Rowenta Pro Compact Garment Steamer beats ironing any day and makes your clothes look so much better too!
