Rated 4 out of 5 by Evelyn Wonderful iron!
I don't like to iron and didn't realize why I didn't like to iron until I tried out this Rowenta Focus Steam Iron. With my previous irons, water would drip and I would be afraid to iron white items for fear that brown liquid would drip onto them. Because of this, I stopped trying to iron with steam and instead used tons of starch and an iron with the steam function turned off. Fast forward to the Rowenta Focus Steam Iron. When I took this iron out of the box, I couldn't believe how heavy it was. It heats up really fast and you only need to go over a section once or twice to get the wrinkles out with steam. I don't need starch anymore. This iron has made such a difference in my ironing routine that I actually don't dread the chore anymore. I would have given it 5 stars but I felt it should have a retractable cord and that the instructions should have written words. The instructions only have pictures and although some say "a picture is worth a thousand words", for me, I feel that words in addition to the pictures would make the instructions more clear.

Well, I can start that I already have another Rowenta iron and I really like that so I already was expecting from this iron same and better performance as from old one. One this is bad - it still not ironing itself :) Other than that it's great - very fast warm time for highest setting, not dripping water (yet) as my old iron. Great for long use (I ironing once per week and I have many items on the list to be ironed). I did have it for few weeks and each time it works great, hard to say better or not as this is iron, you know, you can't see how it operates unless it's broken. Overall I really like that, it has narrow nose to help with ironing around buttons. Steel plate is great, I've never had one before, only ceramic but this one is works great for me so I will change my mind about this part for sure. I would recommend it for mid to heavy use ironing, based on how it operates so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jwood73 Love this iron!
This is definitely a must have iron! I iron all of the time, have gone through many irons over the years, some cheap & some not, & this iron is probably the best I'm ever used. It is very simple to operate. Has a bigger area to add water than others I've owned. The pointed tip is by far my favorite about this iron. It gets in small spaces, like between buttons wonderfully! The reason I only gave 4 stars on design is because I wish it had a retractable cord instead of a wrap around cord.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicole M Rowenta Iron - would buy again in a heartbeat!
The iron looks fantastic. It is heavy and not cheaply made. The iron plate is thick and has many holes for steam. The steam feature is on of the best options on it! Steams quicker and better than any iron I have ever owned. Presses creases in pants/shorts precise and perfectly! Has all kinds of settingstuff for just about any material as well as steam settings. Holds quite a bitime of water so you are not constantly filling and it does not leak water! I am amazed at how wonderful this iron is. The only thing I wished the iron had was a cord keeper or a way to wrap the cord. But, I can get past that with how great this works to iron and steam our clothes! It's super easy to use, directions are easy to follow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mletso Saves me time because it is ready in seconds with jet steam!
Ironing is not one of my favorite things to do. I have an ironing board, but for quick ironing jobs I put a heat resistant ironing mat on our bed and iron there. This iron is quite heavy and works great on the ironing mat. It heats up quickly and is ready to use in seconds. If I need steam, it is easy to fill and I can see how much water has been added and is left. I generally iron when items are still damp right out of the dryer and the steam can be turned off if not needed. This iron sets securely when not in use and the bottom where it sets does not get hot at all, which is great since when I iron on the mat, I set it on my dresser. I like that I don't have to worry about it damaging any surfaces. The swivel cord is a great feature!

I love the design of this iron. It has a precision tip so you can get collars easily. It heats up very quickly and seems to be very sturdily constructed. It's pretty heavy, but not too heavy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Busy Executive/Wife/Mother Highly recommend this iron
I love the sleek design of this product and the heavier weight actually gives it more stability than other irons I have used that have been prone tip over and leak water everywhere. I didn't think I would like the bottom as it is not teflon coated, however, if used at the proper heat setting, it is actually quite smooth and glides easily over the fabric. The iron heats quickly and is ready with steam to use in less than one minute. I think it's a great value as well compared to other similar products.
