    [QUOTEI recently bought a new iron - thought I got one without auto shut-off - appears I was wrong. Went and got the $8 Rival at Wally-World and love it! ][/QUOTE]
    Dang! I just passed on that $8 iron cause I thought something that cheap couldn't be good!

    When my Rowenta died, it certainly didn't go to heaven. Think flames. I bought a Reliable Digital Velocity V100 iron. You can put it in the "no shut-off" mode, or leave it in the mode where it shuts off. It's 1800 watts, and built so that it cannot leak. The steam is fantastic, though I usually iron dry.

    You might want to try "Tuesday Morning" also. They are a discount store that sell household items and a little bit of everything, including quilt and art supplies. They don't have a lot of these, but their prices are great and quality is also usually very good. You can also shop on-line with them if there isn't a store near you.

    Why not another Rowenta? That's what I have been using for many years and it doesn't have an auto shut off. Love it.

    I bought a Rowenta nine years ago without an auto shut-off. It is still working fine. IMHO I will never buy an auto shut off Rowenta again! The three I had were short-lived. My other fav irons are the three I picked up at thrift stores...all Proctor Silex and love them! $3 each!

    HomeDepot also has an iron that I've heard many quilters like. No steam and no holes. Don't know the wattage.
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    well many, many quilters have complained about Rowenta's catching fire. mine was fine for years but finally blew out my power cord. no fire but it went into the trash. I have a Shark but am still looking for a good iron.
