happy so far

Pros: throws plenty of steam short startup period, plenty of steam
Cons: small water tank, awkward water reservoir cover
"bought this iron to replace an aging Rowenta that I've had for 15 years. Originally went with a cheaper iron (also from Costco), but not happy because it seemed designed more for occasional use. I am happy so far with my purchase. I use this iron mainly to iron dress shirts. (I send my pants to the cleaners.) This model is heavy enough that I don't have to press hard to get tight creases but not so heavy that it's a pain to lug around. The funny looking point in the top of the iron is terrific in ironing around the buttons on shirts. The negatives are that the cover to the water reservoir is awkward to remove (as issue of design trumped function I guess) and that the water tank is a bit small. The iron does such a good job with throwing steam that it goes through a full reservoir in a shirt or two. (I normally iron four or five shirts before I get bored of ironing.)"

"I purchased this iron after my old Norelco (also purchased at Costco many years ago) literally fell apart. I use an iron everyday for sewing, so I needed one that would hold up and do a great job. The Rowenta Master Steam Iron does a great job. With the long pointed nose, it gets into the smallest areas. It does a great job of steaming; you can adjust the steam to fit your needs. It heats up very quickly. I tried another brand before purchasing the Rowenta; both have auto shut-offs, but the other brand would shut off and start to cool down much too quickly. The Rowenta takes longer before shutting off, which is much better for me when I'm up and down between iron and sewing machine. The first time I used the iron, I accidently ironed over a piece of interfacing and it burned on part of the face of the iron. The manual does not really cover how to clean the faceplate if you get something on it. I tried everything I could think of to get it off, to no avail. My husband took a piece of very fine steel wool and lighted went over the burnmarks and most of them were removed. Other than that, (and it no fault of the iron, just the manual), I am very happy with it."

Good Iron !

Pros: irons fine
Cons: lacks the punch of the 1700w rowenta professional
Model Number: ROWENTA DW9050 1600W
"I had a rowneta professional iron from costco .it breathed its last in 13 months time from purchase . So i got this iron from Costco again as i liked the previous one . This Iron lacks the Punch of the 1700w iron . It says 1600W on the side but on the iron it says 1700W . I dont understand the Germany to US power drop . I might return this and buy the Rowenta Steamium 1800W iron as i have read good reviews on that .I only wish Costco carried it .
cons : it drips water on high settings of steam i think due to lack of higher wattage
pros : irons well on steam set at half way"

Problem with this iron

Model Number: DW9050
"The instructions in the booklet regarding filling the water tank were very vague. The manual shows a lift off cover and my iron did not have a cover like that at all, Instead there was just a broad strip across making it impossible to fill or even lift up or down. The cover came off after trying to open, the whole piece of the water tank broke and what water I had put into the iron came running out of the plate. I will take it back to Costco as soon as possible. The only thing positive with this iron was the look and feel."
