Euro Pro Ironing Solution

Diana_Brumfield | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

I purchased a Euro Pro Ironing Solution some years ago and am having trouble finding a local person for maintenance. I can’t seem to find a web site for the company. Do they have a website or toll free number? Thanks, Diana

    I am a member of a sewing group for professional sewers like myself. We had an ongoing discussion lately about the EuroPro ironing systems. All of those contributing to the discussion had trouble with the Euro Pro, if they had one in the past. They have said that parts are now longer available and there is now longer a company that stands behind that product. {Good luck- keep checking there may still be help out there that we don't know about.} All of these sewers had trouble with the steam spitting or no steam working or the iron over-heating. I have also heard that some of the irons that sit on top of the water tank have got so hot that they have melted through the water tank. Yikes! Also included on this discussion was the Rowenta iron, it also is not trust worthy. It has a major problem with the thermostat going bad and the steam system spitting or not steaming.

    But also keep in mind all of us full-time sewers have our irons on and hot all day long. These two irons may be great for the home sewer who is just doing a little sewing and ironing here and there but not full time use professionally.

    We have all gone to using the professional irons that have a gravity fed water tank. This is the kind that the dry cleaners use. I bought a Pasific Steam iron from Atlanta Thread and Supply {ATS 1-800-847-1001} three years ago. I love it and I have never had any trouble with it. This iron does a much better job than any of the domestic or so called 'professional' irons that I've tryed, and I've gone through a lot of them [three Rowentas]. The steam is very powerful when you want it, it is completely dry when you want it and it can never spit. I also found that the heavy 4 3/4# weight of this iron is great.

    My Pacific Steam iron cost around $200. From the discussions, all of the many different brands of gravity-fed irons gave the same satisfaction to their users. But in our discussion, there was no one who wrote in and said that they were satisfied with either the Euro Pro or the Rowenta irons.

    I have NO AFILIATION with these irons mentioned or any other brand of iron, also no afiliation with ATS.

      *Katy,I am interested in the gravity feed irons but don't know much about them. I know that there is a bottle that is suspended and water runs into the iron. Is this continuous, is the water then instantly heated in the iron and turned to steam or what? I see that it is a heavy iron, how does it work for steaming wrinkles out of hanging clothes, drapes, etc? I have tried the Rowenta steam generator, but am not satisfied with the way it works, I have to iron both sides of pillow cases and then it still does not take out all of the wrinkles. Is the steam generator better at this? Any information you can provide would be helpful.Thanks,Jeanne S.

        *I also have a gravity feed iron. A Naomoto HYS-510 that I purchased used in Los Angeles. I think all the gravity feeds are similar in quality. If I were buying a new one I'd get the Pacific Steam bec. it's the least expensive. I love this iron. There's no comparison to even the most expensive Rowenta. The gravity irons (or any true professional iron) has a heavy sole plate that heats up rather slowly--but stays at a constant temp. and mine has NEVER scorched anything! My Rowenta, has a thin soleplate that heats up quickly but seems to get much hotter than the Naomoto and will scorch if you're not careful. Think of cookware---the gravities are similiar to heavy cast iron--heavy but even distribution of heat. OK enough about that. With gravity feeds you hang a water bottle from you ceiling with a sturdy hook srewed into a ceiling joist (wood). It holds just over a gallon of water. I've taken my iron apart to clean it. To generate steam you press a button on the handle--this sends a very small amt. of water down onto the top of the hot soleplate inside the iron--it turns to steam instaneously and is driven out the steamports in the bottom of the soleplate. You could use it to steam draperies as the stream generation is quite strong--BUT the iron does weigh 5lbs. For just steaming, go with a Jiffysteam. You'll find both in the Atlanta Thread catalog Katydid mentioned. Order a cat. and browse through it. I'm sure Atlanta with discuss differences with you over phone. I've ordered a blindstich hemmer from them. They are very professional and service oriented. Peter

          *I have a Euro-pro iron, just a simple "craft nsew 959". No problems with it yet. But I wanted to order a filter needed for purifying water. and they didn't know what I was talking about, even when I gave them the parts number. The contact info I have for them is: Euro_pro Corp 178 West service Road, Champlain, NY 12919, (514) 842-8691. They had some affiliation with Pfaff, because all the Pfaff dealers here sell them. HTH. Yes, Rowenta is the worst for service. Don't waste your $.
