(What's this)
The Rowenta Focus steam iron is a solidly built iron. I find it to be a bit heavier than I would prefer, but I take that as a sign that good quality materials were used in its making. It has as much functionality as I need in an iron. The instruction manual is clearly written and understandable. Overall, I give this iron 4 of 5 stars... there are a few design improvements I'd like to see (retractable cord, water tank that dries more quickly) and the price is on the high end, but the steam features and ironing plate work very well and I like the finished result of what I ironed. The temperature dial is easy to use and is clearly marked with MIN, one dot, two dots and three dots, and then type of fabric is also indicated. The iron will only steam at the three dot setting. The directions recommend that you iron from lowest setting fabric to highest setting fabric as it takes a while for the iron to cool, and that way you won't inadvertently scorch delicate fabrics. Placement of the temperature dial is not ideal in my opinion...I found my thumb sliding it as I ironed. Maybe it's the way I hold the iron with my thumb straight rather than curled? At any rate, I'd personally like to see Rowenta move the dial up near the steam setting toggle instead. To use the steam feature, slide open the water reservoir and slowly add tap water. Distilled water is not required and softened water is prohibited (bottled spring water can be used instead). Be careful not to overfill, as the steam will sputter and leak water if you do. Close the water reservoir sliding door and then plug in the iron and heat at the three dot steam setting. To ensure the steam works properly the first time, hold it with the metal plate side down over the sink and press the steam burst button once, then wait a moment, then press again and repeat a few more times. This will ensure the water is flowing properly through the valve and steam comes out smoothly. This iron has a self clean feature and the directions recommend using it every 2-4 weeks to keep the iron free of water minerals and particles that can accumulate over time. So, you'll never need to buy any products to clean this iron...handy feature! I used the iron vertically to get some wrinkles out of new curtains and it worked fairly well...the closer I was to the curtain the better the result. I held the curtain taut with one hand and used the steam burst feature on the iron. It didn't get the major folds completely out, but it lessened them along with getting out the other wrinkles. I also used the iron on a man's shirt and it worked very well. The narrow point of the iron made it easy to iron smaller spots such as the button placket, and the weight of the iron helped smooth out wrinkles quickly. The water spray button provides a nice mist onto the material without over saturating. Steam came out of the iron just as needed and it is fairly quiet when laid against the fabric. One thing I noticed, however, is that each time I pulled the iron upright again it put out a burst of steam before the steam cut off. So be careful what you point the iron at as you set it down if you're using steam. One minor criticism I have of the iron is the cord. It attaches to the iron on a ball and I found it awkward to keep the cord out of my way when setting it down; it seemed to always end up under the base and I had to use a second hand to get it out of the way. I prefer a cord that is stationary in its attachment which makes it easier to flip out of the way as the iron is being set down. Rowenta could also add a retractable cord feature. The other concern I have about the iron relates to the water reservoir. I didn't find it difficult to empty it after using the iron - turned it upside over the sink once the iron was cool and the water streamed out, and then jiggled it in several directions to get the remaining drips out. I stored the iron upright as suggested in the instructions, and I left the water reservoir door open. My problem came two days later when I pulled the iron back out... there was still visible water droplets and a steamy appearance in the tank. So the tank is not drying, and I am concerned that over time it will mildew. I'm not sure if the additional cost will be justified over time, which I why I gave it four stars for value. The iron costs twice as much, if not more, than those of competitors with the same features (anti-drip, safety shut off, auto/self clean, adjustable steam). If this iron last 3 times longer, then kudos to Rowenta for it's high quality, but it will take years before I know whether this holds true.

Excellent iron. I have purchased Rowenta irons for the last 30 years because they do a great job of getting all the wrinkles out of clothes made of any material. It is so easy to iron collars, sleeves, and between buttons. The automatic turnoff is a very nice feature.

We've always had Rowenta irons because they perform so beautifully, This, our newest one, is no exception. We especially like the more elongated and tapered tip, which makes it easier to get into small places in the garment.

What an upgrade from my cheap old dinky little iron! This is the Mercedes of irons! I love German engineering and I've always wanted a Rowenta. The price tag is a bit steep, but you do get quality and features that you don't get with some other brands. It is a bit weighty, but that may be a good thing when ironing out wrinkles. 400 microholes deliver steam evenly. The pointy tip helps getting into small spaces for precision ironing. The anti-calc feature allows you to use tap water if distilled or spring water is readily not on hand. Love the dry ironing or steam/steam burst function. Overall this iron is bigger and better and I highly recommend it!
