If you take your ironing seriously, and are no stranger to the ironing board, you need an iron that works as hard as you do to remove wrinkles and creases from your clothing. The SteamForce is up to the task, with the highest level of steam production of all Rowenta irons.
Stainless steel soleplate glides smoothly over all types of fabric. 400 microholes, 1800 watts of power, and 220 g/min of steam production make quick work of ironing. One-touch control for choosing fabric setting. Produces 30% more steam than other irons. Vertical steam capability for drapes.
The highest level of performance, but also a higher price.
Many of the features of the pricier SteamForce –- self-cleaning system, 400 microholes on a stainless steel soleplate, superb performance – but at a lower price make this our best bang for your buck. A great choice for the frequent ironer.
1700 watts of power and 100 g/min steam production smooth away even stubborn wrinkles with ease. The iron shuts itself off if tipped or left in position for too long, and the large dial control for fabric settings is easy to use.
Some customers complained the iron stopped working after a year or so.
Superior Rowenta performance and all the features you've come to expect from this quality manufacturer, but 25% lower energy consumption than other steam irons makes this model a winner.
1700 watts of power and 180 g/min of steam production quickly remove wrinkles from fabric. Three settings: dry for steam-free ironing, boost for extra steam, and eco for energy savings without loss of steam power.
None to speak of, but a few customers say the iron leaked during use.
If you only iron occasionally and need to watch your budget, you'll get excellent performance at an equally impressive price from this model. It's a bit less powerful than most other Rowenta irons, but gets the job done without any fuss.
1600 watts of power, 300 microholes on the soleplate, and 100 g/min steam production make short work of ironing. Like other Rowenta irons, there's a self-cleaning function, anti-calcium system for extended life, and 3-way auto shutoff for safety.
Smaller water tank than other models. A handful of owners claimed the temperature control is limited, making it difficult to get the desired temperature.
Sightseeing or delivering your big business presentation at the conference while wearing wrinkled clothing is a thing of the past with this small-size, big-performance folding travel iron.
Full-range thermostat for multiple fabric types. Vertical steam capability so you can remove wrinkles from hanging garments. 1000 watts of power and 200 microholes in the soleplate for easy ironing. Dual-voltage switch to iron just about anywhere in the world without need of adapters.
As with any travel iron, the power is lower than full-size models, and the water tank is small.
