I know we talked about this topic before, but I can't find it :cry: I was at JA yesterday and all they carried was Rowanta brand. I do remember you all saying that was not a good brand. I don't want the little ittsy bittsy iron. I guess it's more the size of a "travel iron" and I want my $$ to buy an iron that will last. Thank you all!

I don't think I'll ever buy another Rowenta...I've had nothing but problems with them leaking. Kohl's is always happy to exchange them for me. I've had this latest one for about 5 months now and it's already giving me problems. I don't know what I'll buy next though. I'm curious how many other people have problems with theirs.

I had my first Rowenta for about 7 years and have had this one for about 3 years now.
I love it!

My Rowenta is probably 12 years old and I love it. Maybe the new ones aren't being made as well anymore? They used to be the best irons on the market.

I like my Rowenta just fine. It is about 10 years old. But I am going to try a Shark when this one goes, just because I have a travel shark that I love and not as expensive as a Rowenta.

I believe like Candace that things are just not made the way they use to be. I wonder where the Rowanta irons are made. I would be very surprised if they were made in the USA! Shaverg, I haven't heard the Shark brand before. Where did you purchase yours?

I think I'm going to try to get to our library and see if Consumer's Report ever did an article on Rowanta irons.

Aren't they made in Germany? I don't have the box it came in anymore.

Actually the shark was given to be by my MIL, she got it as a gift for buying a shark. But you can purchase them at Walmart. They use to be a catalog item, but are now carried in many stores.
