I just bought a new Rowenta from JoAnn's. I have had 3 previous Rowenta irons and the first one lasted a really long time, but the next two lasted less than a year each. Someone told me to look where they were made. (I still had them to give to a friend's husband who loves tinkering with small appliances.) The long lasting one was made in Germany, the next two in China. JoAnn's sells both, so I just made sure the iron said "Made in Germany". The reason I like them is that they get really hot and they have a lot more steam holes than others. If you use a coupon, you can buy them fairly reasonably.
