    I love my Rowenta also. I purchased a refurbished one from TJ Maxx and it works great. I was told to look for Rowentas made in Germany. Some are now made in China and they are supposed to be the ones that leak. Mine has 1800 watts for good heat and the steam is great.

    My husband needs a 'new' iron - I looked for one at the rummage sale this morning. He uses an iron to put wax on our skis.

    Do a search here for "irons" and there are many responses.

    No Rowenta, Oliso, or Shark...I say Black and Decker! The older heavier ones are best!

    I recommend Sunbeam brand. I bought my iron 15 years ago and its still going strong. I am going to buy a back up iron for when old reliable gets up and goes. LOL LOL. My second iron will be a Sunbeam again. Good Luck with the iron search. Have a blessed day.

    I just bought an Oliso and love it. I have advanced Rheumatoid Arthritis and my Rowenta just got too heavy with having to lift it back up all the time. The Oliso is great, now my hand and shoulder don't hurt anymore and I get to quilt for longer periods of time. And the iron stays hot for 30 minutes before the auto feature kicks in. I hate auto shut offs. My iron never leaks or spits. Just sooooo happy! ( i bought the yellow one)
