I've been using an iron that is probably around 20 years old, and it finally gave out on me. I was looking at irons and was just going to get something inexpensive from Walmart or something. Then I saw the ad from Sears--I got a Rowenta ProMaster 1700 watt. It said the list price was $119 (I have seen similar irons and all have been priced over $100). Sears ad was for $59.99 + additional 10% off, so I walked out of the store with it and after taxes, total was $52.46. Sure hope it turns out to be a good one!
