Another Rowenta Bit the Dust!!
My hate-hate relationship with Rowenta continues........
Last year, I bought a DX 1000 at JoAnnes only because it was marked down so ridiculously low, I couldn't help myself. I never use the steam feature, because my Rowenta Irons have always leaked. This one has a retractable cord, which I never use - I thought, why tempt fate-it would probably break. First the darn iron wouldn't turn off - yes the auto turn-off feature stopped working.......now it won't stay on. I am trying to sew just a little bit.........and the Iron is not cooperating. Trash day is Tuesday --the pretty Rowenta will find a new home - crushed to smithereens in the trash truck I hope --- sorry Landfill.
I have dug out my cheapie Proctor Silex plain Jane-no features Iron I bought at the local hardware store in desperation. It is small, travels well - doesn't care if I abuse it - It traveled to Retreat and got used when Jen's good iron (Rowenta?) just stopped for no reason. I took it on a trip last week.
I need to buy another Iron with a larger faceplate for regular ironing (ugh - clothes) and ironing yardage. I hate iron shopping............
Thanks for letting me vent! LOL
I hate Rowenta - couldn't give me one for free - I got what I deserved - I should know better!
