This model seems to address some of the problems experienced by some of the irons created by Rowenta. Many people liked that the water is visible and easy to fill. When you are ironing, you sometimes forget about the water levels for the steam. This one will clearly let you know when you are running low on fluid.
This one seems to be much lighter as compared to some of the older models, as noted by several reviewers. After a few hours of ironing, you will start to feel it in your wrist and lower arm. You sometimes have to massage out the cramps. You won’t have that problem here. The unit doesn’t carry a lot of weight and whatever it does carry will not be transferred over too much, or so it doesn’t feel like it.
It doesn’t take a very long time to heat things up. You can literally start ironing in seconds. It’s perfect for those that like to do their ironing last minute and on the fly. It will be a life saver for those moments when you have an important meeting and need to look good.
Many liked that it sits nicely on most ironing boards and the large water tank. You won’t need to interrupt your work session when you start ironing.
