    Do you have one you really like? What do you like or dislike about the one you have?

    Have been using my Rowenta now for 6 six years, and LOVE it. However, I've read negative comments about them on this board.

    I've had a Rowenta for several years. The only complaint I have is that it leaks water at times. Not sure if it is the way I add water to the iron. I never know whether to put it in with the iron cool or hot.

    I have been using my Rowenta for over 15 yrs. & it still works great. I only put distilled water in it.

    Savers is a great place to buy irons and they have a testing station for electronics.
    I bought a Rowenta for $5.50

    I have not been happy with Rowenta and just recently bought a Reliable iron (the orange one). I haven't tried it yet but the people in my quilt group rave about how wonderful it is. It's expensive -- around $100 and takes distilled water.

    I really like the Shark. It heats up very quickly and doesn't leak. Can give powerful bursts of steam when needed. There are two models I believe. I bought the one that is in the $35 price range. Have seen them at Sears and at Target.


    (Have been quilting for 7 years, and average one iron every 2.5 years, so I'm on my third Shark).

    I love my Oliso I have the blue one. 2 years and no problems. I use distilled water because I live in Florida and even filtered tap water can give irons problems.

    I but the cheapo from Walmart - I can't even break them - I have the same one year after year. I finally bought a new one because mine was so old - another cheapo and no problems at all.
