    Basic steam iron recommendation?

    Hi!
    My Rowenta of 8 or 9 years stopped working the day before a suitcase-packing trip... Don't want to spend much - can someone recommend a decent no-frills steam iron?

    Hi, Dyavion. There are many things to consider before buying a steam iron. First of all, there are plenty of irons available in the market and each model has own pros and cons. I recommend you read reviews, only after that to buy a good one. Check out this website https://ironsexpert.net/best-iron-under-50/

    Modern Rowenta models are good enough

    Oh, so sorry. Old Rowenta's were so good. But as for now I can't find a model that won't have leakage issues. Tried several of them, all returned to the seller. So I don't agree with SunnyBF - and it seems to me, that it's pretty common (source).
    As for now I'm pretty happy with my Black+Decker D2530. I love the weight - not too heavy yet heavy enough to iron out wrinkles without bearing down on it. Heats up quickly. What else do you need from a sewing iron?
    But twice that Wiey said - unfortunately you will have to look up customer's reviews to help you decide if a certain iron is a good match for you, as the things we like/dislike are not usually on the box--ex. Does it hold the heat, does it feel too heavy after ironing awhile etc. And maybe it's just me but I wouldn't buy an iron online myself. I want to "feel" them. See how they fit my hand, and how they balance. Are they heavy or do they have a light feel... Most have all the same features but I want one that is comfortable for me to handle as well and I can't tell by looking at a picture.
