Default Iron kvetching was Re Happy ending for Joann coupon.

Did I use that word right? kvetching? like looking over someone's
shoulder in a card game and giving unwanted and revealing advice?
Well I "could" complain that my iron has no cover over the steam hole.
So if I get really fast, the water sloshes back out of it, and it's REALLY
HOT water too! I don't know how many times I stop to iron out the water
spots in the ironing board instead of the fabric. LOL
Then you could comiserate, which is sort of like complaining, just in
the second person tense.
I think the Rowenta I want is called DM-886. Heavy, No Auto-Off,
Covered fill hole, and Selectable Steam as in, I can push the button and
lock it down for steam, or release it and no steam, even if I'm on a hot
setting like Cotton.

Me too, I have a B&D iron, which works fine. But I guess I haven't even
ever seen a more
expensive iron to see what the difference is. I could truly be missing

out
on something here!
I thought irons just got hot, and then you pressed them down on fabric to
make it flat. ;^)
Hey, maybe ignorance is bliss!

One thing I do miss with my new iron that I had on my old 40-year old iron
that conked out
is the ability to turn of the steam at will. When I use spray starch I

like
to use a hot DRY iron.
But this new iron thinks it's smarter than me, so it won't let me pick

when
to steam or not -- it picks for me.
I hate that! Mostly because the iron probably is smarter than me, and

that
irks me a little. But it's tolerable.
In the end the iron gets hot and then I put it on the fabric and it makes

it
flat...so what can I complain about?

Yippee for you! I would buy a Rowenta from JoAnn's in a minute if I got

a
50% off coupon that would work on it. At full price, I'm choosing to

wait
til I really need it. The 25.00 Black and Decker just keeps on steamin'
anyway.

Today I went to Joann's to buy a new iron. Up until yesterday my

Rowenta
was fine, until Sugar (super QI Kitty) jumped on the ironing board and

down
it went. Of course it was on a tile floor. Very ugly and the iron

was
only
about 1 year old. I dug out my 50% coupon and picked out a new one

$25
after the 50%. I got to the register and the cashier said it was not

good
on irons. Here we go! I was in there on Saturday and bought a travel
Rowenta and used that coupon. The manager was called and I told him

very
nicely of the situation and he said let it go. I was a very happy

customer
and told him that I shop here alot.
That was my experience with the coupon. Linda

After several years hard wear, several rapid descents to the floor, and
water courtesy of Blue Circle (cement manufacturers!), my lovely Rowenta
P2 Professional is slowly dying of iron fatigue... It will last a few
months yet, but being an older model (about 5 years old now), I don't
think we can get spare valves and such. Part of the plastic casing,
into which a screw fits, is busted, and all the rubber seals are slowly
stiffening. I'm thinking of getting a steam generator one, and want to
know which models are good. Remember I'm in the UK, using 240v
electrons.

It was very tempting to me when I was at Joann's not to buy the steam
generator iron. However I do not think the manager would have let that one
slide through on the coupon. Next time Sugar knocks it off I may have to
consider that one.

Hey Bev that is really great. If I couldn't find that deal
I'm glad you did Only we quilters could appreciate a good
deal on an iron and a special ironing board.

It's a low-line Rowenta but is perfect. No auto-shut off to annoy me in
mid-piecing and steams like the devil.
then I really got motivated and bought myself one of those
wider-than-the-usual ironing boards with the iron holder on the end,
fromWalMart.

Actually, my husband found the iron for me. He told me later that he
figured if he found something for me that *I* was interested in, I would be
more patient and let him browse the aisles of Lowe's without big, long sighs
from me.
How annoying that he is so correct.......
