    I have used Rowenta irons for the last 15 or so years and my latest one just went out. Had to go buy a cheap one at WalMart as I can't sew without an iron. I want to get another good one later.

    I am very happy with my Black & Decker Digital Advantage. The only con for me is that I have to reset the level every time (this might be an issue on any with an electronic setting) but it's not a big deal to press the button a few times to get it to the cotton setting. Unless I forget.

    I have the 1800 watt Smart Iron Pro-Zone Pressing Surface Oliso. It has a 30 minute auto-shut off and has the lift, which is an awesome feature. All of the Oliso's I looked at, has the lift. I have used Rowenta's in the past but was never happy with them. The Oliso's are very expensive but I love them!! :)

    Well, I had the Shark (the expensive model) from Walmart and took it back after 1 months-leaked like a seive!! I learned that the Chinese made Rowentas were bad, but the German made ones were ok-was at Costco and ended up buying a Rowenta Master made in Germany, and so far I love it!! Time will tell, though. I hope I got a good one, considering all the lemons many people have had!! The only thing I don't really like with it is the water tank is blue and a bit hard to see the water level when filling unless you're in the right light.

    One that I haven't dropped on the floor. I've broken one every time I've moved (and I move a lot)!

    I have had such luck with the cheap ones that I have only had two in the last 15 years and one of them I lost in a move. I have used one at my mom's house...one of the fancy ones that has auto shut off and auto lift. I much prefer the cheapy I'm using. The other ones are heavier and shut off on me all the time. Lol. It's all on person preference. :)

    My favorite iron is our 40 some year old GE non-steam iron. I like to spritz the items I am ironing and never have to worry about drips or spots from a steam iron. I've had Black and Decker, Rowenta, and other new irons and always wind up back with old faithful.

    Tonight I bought a cheap black & Decker with auto shut off the only feature on sale for $17. I have had 3 Rowentas and every one has quit working after a few years.

    I love my Oliso, have had it for 4+ years and have had no issues. Pressing is my least favorite thing to do but with the Oliso, not so bad.

    I have the Reliable V100... I love this iron... steam and sole plate temps are separate, so you can set cool iron and still have high steam if you wanted, (or whatever combo you wanted)
    Best of all though... you can over-ride the auto-shut-off!

    Any iron that is hot and steamy and doesn't have the dial between the handle and the base!

    I love my Krupps. I've had it almost 20 years. It gets dropped on the tile floor every now and then by the cats, but it still works perfectly, steams evenly and never spits or is (as Ricky Timms says) "incontinent". But I only use distilled water in it.

    I like any iron that's not a Rowenta.
