Over the years I have spent plenty on Rowentas...as much as $140 for one of the Advancer models but never less than $60....and they have not been as good as this reasonably priced Hamilton Beach. Plus, I always had to use a silicone iron shoe (expensive by itself) to prevent seam impressions on dark fabrics since Rowentas have stainless steel soleplates. Eventually, every one of the Rowentas developed a strange leak of the same nature. I sew a lot as well as iron clothing for four family members...lots of shirts. This iron is fantastic! I was looking for a good non-stick iron (not many options available) that had a good feel, balanced weight, long cord, large water tank, performed well, and was stable on the ironing board surface. After bringing home a couple to try, this was the absolute winner. The wrinkles iron out like a breeze. I have used it for about a week now and like it so much that I am going to go out and buy a back-up...same one...just to have on hand. Haven't experienced any of the leaking problems yet that some reviewers did, but possibly they got a lemon. All manufacturers seem to have those.
