Finally got a new Iron!

A couple months ago I wrote a post lamenting my iron’s inadequacies. Well, the day finally came for a new one. Husband took me to Costco and we got the 1600W Rowenta Master Steam Iron.

My new Rowenta Iron!

My mother in law highly recommended it so I thought I’d try it out. So far, my experience has been mixed. I love the weight of it: heavy enough to get a good press but not heavy enough to maneuver, steam capability is AWESOME, doesn’t auto shut-off too quickly, and the funny shaped point makes it really easy to press seams open.

Please ignore my disgustingly filthy ironing board cover! I actually threw it out after this!

So what’s wrong with it? While I was ironing my cute yellow chevrons last night, it spewed a bunch of brown water all over my pretty yellow fabric! What the heck? I rushed my fabric to the sink and hopefully got the brown out. It happened again later but luckily none of my fabric was damaged that time. I think it might have been because I left the iron plugged in with water in it over night. This time I did a self clean, emptied the water reservoir and unplugged it once I was done for the night. Hopefully that will keep it from happening again. Has this happened to you?

Hope you had a good weekend!

Linking up to Jo’s Try it On Tuesday!
