I love my T-fal aquaspeed. Light and fast and while not cheap, no where near top line Rowenta prices. Even though its light, it does a great job...far better and faster than my old B&D, for about $30 more...it made me back the price in one session.

Ditto on the interest - I would also like to know what kind of features to look for, my current iron is as basic as it gets and I dont use starch but this iron was used a few times by someone who is a starchaholic so I am concerned about build-up on the iron. Any advice would also be appreciated.

I have a Rowenta Advancer. With a 20% coupon from BB&B you can get it for a decent price. I know some people think they are over priced, however it is the most effective and efficient iron I have owned.

+1 for Rowenta

Ditto on Rowenta. I'm not sure which model I have, but it's a great iron. It puts out so much steam that I never have use the spray head and I almost never have to use steam bursts. I do have to fill the trough after every three shirts, though :icon_smile_wink:

Rowenta

I have Rowenta combination iron and steamer. It replaced my dying clothes steamer and allowed me to give my daughter my Rowenta iron. No regrets. The difference between the Rowenta and its less expensive cousin is worth the extra cost.

I don't know whether they're available in the US, but Polti (an Italian company) and Laurastar (Swiss) produce domestic versions of professional irons.

Polti is cheaper and more compact than Laurastar. However, the Laurastar comes with an integral board - the tank beneath which is filled with water - which inflates (if desired) and a sleeve-board.

Both are powerful steam irons.

Laurastar is available at Harrods and Polti is available either via mail order or Argos (a down-market retail chain).

I have the Rowenta Focus and I love it. Rowenta's are great irons and their small tip makes it easy to iron between buttons.
1+. I also used the BB & Beyond 20% coupon. The Focus is quite a bit cheaper than the Advancer, and has Rowenta's newer soleplate (with about 400 steam holes), which is why I chose it over the model with the separate water reservoir.

I'm on my second Rowenta... the first one gave up the ghost after 8 years of daily use. Get the heaviest and highest-wattage one you can find. Heat and weight make short work of wrinkles.

I did just score an advancer and I can say that the volume of steam that comes out at the push of a button is almost unbelievable. its a very nice gadget which both holds a lot of water and is capable of using a lot of water. I like that it has a thermostat and auto shut-off.
