If that old friend were a temperamental person with a bladder issue.
My Rowenta Powerduo iron has been leaking like a sieve for months now. Not just a few drops here and there, but water literally pouring out of places I’m pretty sure water shouldn’t even be. I grew tired of wasting time and water on a piece of junk that is supposed to be “high end.” Thankfully I only paid $17.50 for this $70 iron.
Now I’ve gone back to my original iron… A $12 Black and Decker that served me well until I got the Rowenta. It’s not as heavy as the Rowenta, and that’s a slight problem for me, but it’s a good little iron. It gets the job done. It emits a steady stream of steam, unlike my Rowenta, and it doesn’t leak one tiny bit.
After Craftstravaganza I will probably buy myself a new iron. Probably a Black and Decker with a little more body if possible. I just have to make sure my current Black and Decker can hold out until May. It has a lot of hard work ahead of it.
