5-0 out of 5 stars Steaming in the Carribean
I first used the Rowenta Steam Generator a couple of weeks ago while on a Radisson Cruise ship in the Caribean a couple of weeks ago. It was so much quicker than a regular iron and did such a professional job that I was actually enjoying ironing! There is tons of steam and that is what makes the process so fast and the results so professional looking. I bought one as soon as I got back and love it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally...the Perfect Iron
Ok I will be the first to review - and from a guy :) Let me start off with I iron all of my clothes which my wife stipulated before we got married :) Ok so being a guy I did not want to spend hours ironing my shirts plus I wanted them to look as if they came from the dry cleaners. I had the Rowenta Professional and honestly it was horrible. So I almost did not go with Rowenta but as I researched steam generators it came down to this and Euro-Pro. I decided to stick with Rowenta and I am glad I did. My ironing is a snap. The steam that comes out of this machine is unbelievable and that is what removes wrinkles. I highly recommend this iron if you want to cut your ironing in half. Also be sure and call Rowenta customer service and see if there is a rebate. I called with questions and then asked about a rebate they then sent out a form just from Rowenta - 20 bucks. Helps with the sting of a $200 iron :)

Pros:
1.STEAM!!! Lots of it and very powerful.
2.You can steam hanging garments.
3.Big water basin in the base so no more running out of water

Cons:
1. It is bulky. Can't hang on the wall :)
2. After about 15 irons you do need to rinse out the boiler. Very easy but price you pay for the steam.
3.Creates a rumble noise every once in awhile while the water is being injected into the boiler. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

When an iron’s not enough or may harm fabric, the Rowenta 1500-watt commercial garment steamer steps in with a powerful design that’s kind to clothes. Ready to go in just two minutes, the steamer has a flexible 5-foot hose with a cool-touch handle and a wide mouth with six steam portals for excellent dispersion. The extra-large, 128-ounce transparent tank is designed for commercial-grade output, so you can steam a closetful before refilling. It locks into place when in use and unlatches simply for removal. A convenient swivel hanger atop the sturdy aluminum pole supports garments while you’re steaming and the hose head between uses. Two included brush attachments open fabric and upholstery weave for better steam penetration, and Rowenta also throws in a lint brush. Other nice details include a foot-operated power switch, a ready-indicator light, maneuverable casters, and automatic shut-off for safety. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars review from I hate to iron
I bought the steamer in hopes of ironing less. I am a nurse and my uniforms just need touch ups usually. I was very happy with my steamer at first. I had the steamer less than a year and the telescoping metal pole broke. I am still waiting for a replacement at $20. The poles are back-ordered so obviously lots of them break. I also noticed when I was done with the steamer and emptied the water there was some water residue left in the machine. I first got a washcloth to soak it up and the water was still very hot. I have yet to find a way to empty the old water in the machine. I think it is an o.k. steamer, certainly not a professional or commercial grade.

1-0 out of 5 stars Returned to the store
I had high hopes for this steamer after reading the many reviews, however i recently returned it to the store. It is cumbersome, sporadic heat/steam and doesnt work on heavier garments so I had to iron things anyway! It sat in the corner for most of the time simply taking up space and gathering dust. I am going to look at the portable jiffy steamers after a travelling friend raved about hers.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed
I have four teenagers who love to wear clothes that need to be pressed. I thought this would save me a lot of time. It did an o.k job on most of their clothes but my clothes looked wilted and you could still see the where the wrinkles had been. I am sending it back.

5-0 out of 5 stars I hate ironing, but sure love laundry!
First of all, gotta mention the need for the 1.25" wrench to put it together. Yeah, I guess I could have tried to hand-tighten it, but no insurance wouldn cover steam burns if the 1500W steamer blew the hose off. I filled it with plain tap water. The container is a little on the bulky side, so it can't be filled with the bathroom sink.

Turning it on was easy with a switch that can be foot operated. Steam was coming out, as promised, within 3 minutes. Tip for those in small rooms -- it took me about five minutes to realize that I should have opened the window before starting!!!

Steaming clothes is pretty easy. I spent over an hour playing with all sorts of clothes and only carelessly scalded myself a few times (usually when working the steamer from the inside of the shirt). In a nutshell, it is simple to use and works really well, but don't expect miracles.

The Rowenta is pretty quick and I could get through a shirt in about five minutes. It won't look freshly pressed or anything, but it's not like I could do much better with an iron in five minutes. A worn or washed shirt could easily look freshened up in that little bit of time. Just passing the head over the chest area produced immediate results. I did the right side before the left side and you could easily see a difference. A little bit of work on the sleeves and the back, and the shirt was ready to head back into the closet.

My major areas of difficulty included getting enough tension on certain areas for the steam to force wrinkles open and working on the bottom of the shirt. The steamer took care of simple wear-and-tear wrinkles, but I'd have problems working out sharp creases in the shoulder region and where the shirt is tucked in. I guess that's to be expected because the steamer head doesn't work like a a magic wand, where I pass the head over the area and presto -- it's all straightened out! It is still a little frustrating and will just take some time to figure out the proper technique. Secondly, the garment tower only stands about five feet tall. I hung the shirt in a hanger off the tower and the bottom of the shirt is only a couple feet off the ground. It's a little uncomfortable and hard to easily access that area, especially when the hose will start to gurgle if you have it down there too long (from condensation).

I also tried a pair of pants and again, it's not easy to access all the areas of the pants. They did work getting some kinks out of a hanging pair of wrinkled khakis, but didn't get them all out. Definitely an improvement, but the pants were kind of thick, so it may have been an unfair test.

All in all, I'm impressed with the steamer. As mentioned before, it won't work miracles and shouldn't be compared to a conventional iron. I don't think I could iron a shirt much better, so I usually don't iron my clothes. But if I can refresh or liven up wrinkled shirts at five minutes/garment, I'd say it's good money spent in the long run.

4-0 out of 5 stars Dear Rowenta: Make a Taller Clothes' Pole!
I've purchased this product about 3 weeks ago. I was extremely tempted by the very reliable Jiffy brand but could not quite justify the price for their pro model. So, I took a stab at the 7800. It's wattage is identical to the Jiffy, meaning, its steaming power is equal. The water tank heats up as described and the steam exudes wonderfully. The extra attachments are nice perks. The biggest drawback, as with the Jiffy and any other brand I've seen, is the 5'3" pole. I mean, who designs these things??? Try hanging a pair of pants with 34 inseam and go to town steaming. Like with any other steamer, when you lower the handle down too far, the gurgling starts. You have to straighten the hose and elevate the handle in order to free condensation build up. What is wrong with making a sectional pole that's adjustable to 6-feet? Duh.
Other than that, don't hesitate to purchase this product, ladies and gents. You'll be delighted with it. And, I recommend purchasing the product at www.smallappliance.com. (No, I'm not employed with them. They are in Miami; I'm in L.A.). I suggest purchasing from them because Rowenta offers only a 1 year warranty. Go through smallappliance.com and they'll throw in a free extra year warranty. And, uh... by the way... shipping is free. Only took about 5 days to get my product.

Amazon.com Review

This system, previously available only to professionals, offers homeowners the advantages of separating steam generation from the iron. Separate steam generation is ideal for heavy ironing and specialty sewing and craft work; it means the iron weighs less and steam generation goes on and on, with fewer interruptions for refilling. Rowenta's steam generator holds 33 ounces of tap water, enough for 90 minutes of continuous steaming. A flexible 68-inch tube connects the generator to the iron and permits the generator (11 by 6 by 8-3/4 inches) to be placed on the ironing board or on the floor. For safety, a valve prevents the accidental opening of the generator during steaming. The iron is first-rate, with a smooth-gliding, polished stainless-steel soleplate; variable steam; and vertical steam for removing wrinkles in curtains and hanging garments. The generator and iron carry a one-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny
Spend the $, get the best
Steam generation is continuous making the aweful job of ironing as easy as it can be.
I've stopped taking my shirts to the cleaners for pressing. This iron is so easy to use and so effective that I now starch my own shirts with liquid starch. I just dip the shirts in a starch bath in the sink and then spin them out in the washer spin cycle, then hang them to dry (wrinkles and all).
When I go to press them, the steam produced from this iron penetrates right through the dry fabric and starch reactivating it for a crisp press that's better than professional.

5-0 out of 5 stars You Deserve It ! !
This is a wonderful iron!! The iron is light and easy to handle but the outstanding feature is the steam. Your clothes will look as if you just picked them up from the dry cleaners. It is amazing what a change the steam from this iron makes compared to a regular steam iron on your clothing. It reduces ironing time considerably. I should have purchased this years ago---

4-0 out of 5 stars What a great sewing tool!
I've dreamed of owning this steam generator iron for a long time, and thanks to Amazon's wish list, I received it as a Christmas gift. The timing was great since I'm in the middle of sewing bridesmaid and groom's mother wedding dresses. I haven't put the iron down yet. It works great and I'm not sure how I ever survived without it.

It actually makes the ironing task so much easier. It produces a large amount of steam that helps to make flat seams and sharp hems. I've even used it vertically to steam wrinkles out of velvet and hanging curtains.

This iron is lighter and a little smaller than a regular steam iron so it provides more flexibility in getting into smaller seams. You need to plan where you will be placing the unit when you sew. The steam generator is big, and shouldn't be placed on the ironing board because of space restrictions and stability. There is ample cord length so it can be placed on the floor or a table close to the ironing board. The manufacturer recommends tap water for use in this iron. It is cleaned by emptying it out and refilling it every 10 uses.

My only complaint is that it needs a view window or some type of indicator for determining when it needs to be refilled. It's a guessing game to try and figure out how much water is still in the unit. This is minor when compared to the great performance of the product.

2-0 out of 5 stars Consider alternatives before purchase
The unit worked for one year and five months and the switch died (made in France not Germany). The estimate for repair is 50-70% of the cost of the machine plus shipping to the regional service center. While the steam generator is a dream to use, the cost of repairing or replacing it is not real appealing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Miracle iron!
Unbelievable- this iron makes me actually look forward to ironing. I have had 4 frinds bring their ironing here and they all want one. I have heard of this iron for over 10 years and thought - how dumb to spend so much money on an iron. I wish I had bought one ten years ago and if it broke today I would go out tomorrow and buy another! Honestly- 1/3 the time and the whole pile of levi shirts and pants looks newly bought! I wish I could sell this product on commission- I'd be a millionaire. ... Read more
