    I am relatively new to the quilting world and have only completed one simple quilt although I have many "in the making" and am curious if y'all have any recommendations on a nice iron and why that is your choice...also, a price range and where to find them would be great! Thanks in advance!

    I just use a plain old Walmart special. It works great for me.

    I have had a Rowenta (sp) and found my cheaper Wal-Mart buys where better irons. I use and take a $10.00 Black and Decker.

    LoL, well I wondered if there really was a difference in the expensive ones I've seen at shops and the Wal Mart cheapies...just as I suspected, an iron is an iron is an iron! Thanks everyone! :-D

    I had a Rowenta that had auto shutoff for less than 2 years - it broke :(

    Bought another Rowenta with NO Auto shutoff (less expensive than first too) - it's over 2 years old now :)

    Just picked up another Rowenta NO shutoff at a rummage sale (cheap and clean!)- steams and heats - :) crossing fingers it'll last.

    Same thing with me. I thought I needed a Rowenta b/c of all the hype- total waste of money. I have a cheap one and love it.

    I bought a Rowenta on sale at JoAnn's about five years ago - has an automatic shut off... it STILL works - There is a definite difference in my last $9.00 iron and this one. I will buy another Rowenta when this one is done.
