Rowenta Acti-Steam Iron/Model: DZ2060
(Queen Creek, Arizona, USA)
I recently received the Rowenta Acti-Steam Iron as a wedding gift and it is by far the best iron I have owned. It is very light and has a comfortable grip which makes ironing less of a chore.
I like that it can be used upright to steam curtains or a dress on a hanger. I also like how quickly this iron heats up and makes quick and crisp creases with its powerful puff of steam, which helps on those mornings when I am in rush. And best of all, when I am on my way to work wondering if I remembered to unplug the iron, I don't freak out anymore because I remember that it has automatic shutoff after eight minutes, as well as automatic shutoff after thirty seconds if it is tipped over or laying face down.
It is definitely safer than any other iron I have owned, making it a great iron for peace of mind alone. Unlike most of the irons I have owned in the past, this iron does not have the annoying problem of leakage - definitely a plus for me. I like the fact that it has a self-cleaning feature, even though I have yet to use it.
Although I received this iron as a gift, I checked the price online and it is retailing for around eighty dollars. Kind of pricey if you ask me, but in this case, I think a higher price does translate to higher quality.
Overall, I would highly recommend this iron to anyone who is looking for a really top-notch iron. I would also highly recommend this iron as a gift, especially as a wedding gift. I enjoyed receiving it because I would not have purchased an iron this pricey for myself. Thankfully, I have good friends with good taste in gifts!
