Sears ad has this iron listed for $59.99 minus 10% (ad coupon) minus 5% with Sear charge card. It lists at $109.99. Sounds good. Anyone have one?
I don't have a rowena but have heard a lot of people say it starts to leak after a while.
I have a Rowenta but I don't think it's a promaster. The water reservoir is heavy plastic and pulls out. It's been a great iron and has never leaked. Course it can't because of the separate reservoir. Great steam when you need it. Almost rises off the board when you give it a shot of steam.
Have had one for over 5 years and never had a problem. Although it is not the pro, it does have powerful steam spray. I would certainly buy another.
My Rowenta isn't that particular model, but like others have said, it's a great iron. This is my second Rowenta and neither one has leaked.
I think it's our water here....or you have to EMPTY it after each use but my Rowenta Pro leaked AND my automatic shut -off Maytag did too..So I got the Euro Pro Steam iron and I just open the steam valve at the end and VOILA! all the steam is gone!
I haven't had that model. I like the pointy nose and the steamholes that go into the nose. I think it would be especially good for intersections, and for working with applique seam allowances, and for pressing seams open, and.... wait a minute, I think I'm talking myself into one, and I definitely don't need another iron right now.
Your price is much much better than QVC's.
Anyway, I've had several Rowentas in my ironing lifetime. They didn't leak, but they stopped heating after about a year an a half.
do search for complaints on Rowenta irons. some have caught on fire!! i had one for years and dis-regarded warnings for quite awhile. then one day i plugged it into my power strip so i could use my fusible batting outside my sewing room (which I've done many times) and it blew my power cord! scared me. I ended up tossing the iron adn buying a new power cord too.
got a small Shark, blue and silver.
Don't need an iron right now but this sounded like a great sale. Might not be the smart buy though. Thanks for all the information.
I had a Rowenta for many years with no leaks but one too many drops on the floor and it quit. Since then I have had a Rowenta, Shark, Maytag, Black and Decker and couple of others, all leaked after a few months. I now have a dry iron. I came to the conclusion that it is the water here. We have extremely hard water and the directions said not to use distilled so that's what I did. When I sew garments, however, I really, really wish for a good steam iron. I have a friend who has had a Rowenta for about 2 years now with no problem. She mixes distilled and from the faucet.
I said my Rowentas didn't leak but that's not quite right. When they needed cleaned, they did sometimes spit a little. The ones I had were made with a self-cleaning button . . . and there was a LOT of gunk come out when I used that feature.
I have a T-Fal with the non stick sole plate and love it. It's bveen going for 5 years now. They no longer sell that model but if I needed a new iron I would buy another T-Fal. I knocked it off the ieoning board once and cracked the plastic but it doesn't leak. I only use distilled water no matter what they say in the instructions and I never never leave the room without unpluging because I bought a black & decker and when i turned it on one day it spit waters and sparks and it was only 3 months old. I don't take chances any more.
The water tanks on some of the Rowentas ruptures. I'm pretty sure that's what happened to mine. It didn't just leak, it poured.
I have a Shark now and really like it. I use store-bought bottled water - not distilled and not my tap water because of the iron in it. (We have a filter system on our well, it just doesn't get serviced in a timely manner because it's expensive to get someone else to do it and a pain to do it yourself.)This message has been edited.
