My wonderful 20+ year-old Sunbeam steam iron finally died and I’m having trouble finding another iron that works as well as it did to replace it.
I bought a Rowenta Powerglide a year ago, and am not happy with it. My major complaint is that it won’t get hot enough to press wrinkles out of linen and cotton and it seems to be getting cooler and cooler at its top heat setting all the time. It also dribbles, and within one year’s time the auto shut-off started to malfunction. Even when the auto shut-off was working, it was a nuisance – as soon as I had sewn a few seams and was ready to iron them, the iron would inevitably have turned itself off and I would have to wait for it to reheat.
Can anyone suggest a steam iron that will successfully press damask linen tablecloths and 100% cotton clothing – that does NOT have auto shut-off?
