Ha-ha. Rowentas don't go to heaven.
I just bought a Reliable Velocity after my third rowenta caught fire. (it is bright orange) It has a disable mode so you can leave the iron on or use the auto off. I love it. It really does not leak and has great steam that you can turn on and off as you use the iron.
I got it through All Brands. This machine is usually about $100.00 but I got it for $60.00 cause it is a returned piece and the box was open. It was a chance but a good one so far. I love it.
to use the disable mode you hold the steam button in for eight seconds and the lights blink to let you know. It does have to be reset after it has been unpluged but that is a little thing to do. Having steady heat is important to quilters.
hope this helps a little.
EDIT: Newer rowentas have auto off
