    Yes, there's an iron that doesn't take water. I've seen it in the Vermont Country Store catalog. I bet that doesn't leak!

    I have an expensive Rowenta iron. It doesn't just leak it dumps the water. I contacted Rowenta, but since I waited until after the warrenty, they won't do anything. I like the burst of steam. I can't afford to replace expensive irons every year. Guess I'll be going to the mist and dry iron.
    We would worry less about what others think of us if we realized how seldom they do.

    I bought the iron from Vermont Country Store (vermontcountrystore.com) and I love it. It heats up fast, gets plenty hot enough, stays hot and it is not a steam iron so it never leaks. Also a nice weight and size, take it to all the classes I teach. Love it!

    I've had very good luck with Black and Decker too. I use water and just get an inexpensive model from Walmart.

    The reliable velocity irons do not leak or spit at all.

    I think the key to the iron problem is check with the directions on how to clean the steam area. I just forget about cleaning and my directions say once a month I should fill with water (plain tap, I think) and hold it over the sink and keep pushing the steam button that gives you a burst of steam and you should see the gunk that comes out. One direction says use distilled water and another place says use tap water. I end up using distilled water in mine.
