Whoa! A Steam Iron that really Steams!
Still a great purchase. After reading some of the subsequent reviews about all the leaking and such, I'd have to say perhaps they got a bad version. Other than the occasion spitting, at very predictable circumstances as noted above, I've had nary an issue with this iron. I sincerely hope it continues to last.
Better than many higher priced irons
Over the years, I have spent top dollar for irons of various brand names thinking that they would be of higher quality and perform better. I have only had this iron for a short while, but so far, this fella stands up to the top name brands that cost $100 and above.
Note: The different colors have different options - thanks to several Amazon reviewers for pointing this out - I almost ordered based on my favorite color, and would not have received the iron with the retractable cord.
The T-fal is far superior than my old iron but it heats up quickly. The steam coming out is not as powerful as I would have liked. The price seems low for the features it has. I am unsure of the durability as I have only owned it for 2 months. I like that it has a wider base that it makes it easier to iron and it very stable.
This iron is awesome for such a low price. It heats up VERY fast and produces a great amount of steam. The water spray feature is very accurate and is a strong steady stream. I havent had any issues with it as far as it leaking. It presses clothes and leaves a nice crisp press that last all day without that burnt iron smell. I love this iron!
Beautiful iron, nice overall
Got the iron a few days ago. I needed to iron some clothes. So I gave this new Rowenta dw2090 iron a try. The retracting cord had to be depressed a few times for the cord to come out and retract properly. Not what I expected for a $60.00 iron, but then again most of the irons or related items on the market seemed to have this problem. I will try to apply a small coat of sil-glyde on the cord to see if it would help with the retraction.
Best iron I've every had!
This has more weight, heat, and steaminess than most irons, and I find it faster and more effective than any iron I've had. I almost didn't buy it because of the negative comments on the cord placement, but I don't find that to be a problem. My cord is plugged in directly in front of me and the flexible cord just stays to the right side of the iron when it's put on its heel. It is heavy, so I don't leave the iron unattended on the board.
