    Rowenta iron

    I used to count my blessings: Bernina sewing machine, Rowenta iron, Gingher shears and snips. That first Rowenta was amazing. When it died (22 years of perfect performance!) I rushed out to buy another. What a dud. It has always leaked and now (after maybe 4 years) it won't even heat up.
    Any advice? Has Rowenta quality slipped? I use my iron a lot. Any other serious sewing or quilting people who might tell me what to do next?

    i think the company may have been bought out? that's just a feeling i have though so i could be wrong. the quality is definitely not as good as it used to be.

    Thanks, Stella. Do you know what the best brand is now?

    no idea. i don't know which Rowenta you have, but you could try a more expensive one if you have one of their more "budget" irons. i've never used one, but they might work better.

    honestly, i just like older steam irons. they seem more durable. retractible cords and functions other than steam don't really add to the functionality for me.
