Need a new iron or pressing system

sewsalot | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

I’m in need of a new iron.  Has anyone seen a comparison done of the irons or steam generating pressing systems available on the market?

Does anyone have any recommendations based on ironing systems they’ve used?

    Hi

     

    I have a Rowenta with a large water tank that I have had for about 7 years and I just love it.  Lots of steam thats easily controlled and you aren't forever filling it up.  I think they run around $90.  You want the one with a separate tank.

     

    Speaking of irons, I LOVE to iron starched cotton shirts, (OK I'm weird) but my old dry iron finally shorted out.  I like a dry iron for this as it is much heavier and doesn't have steam vents.  Any one know a source for this as they don't seem to make them any more.

    I'm new to this forum and just saw your question about ironing systems.  I know a lot of people have the Rowenta systems and like them, but my favorite is a Euro-Pro ironing system, which I've had for about 7 years.  It has suction under the ironing board, so that you can steam fabric as much as you want, and the fabric will dry in a minute.  It is sooo useful if you are steaming during construction (or just plain pressing), because you don't have to wait for the fabric to dry before moving it.  This system is a little pricey, but you might want to check it out.
