Pros Inexpensive, portableGreat glide, steam output, preciseRapid heating, good steam output, smooth glideGreat steam output, glide, preciseDecent steam output and ironing performance
Cons Weak, relatively poor ironing performanceExpensiveDifficult to fillVery expensiveDoesn't excel in any particular aspect
Bottom Line Nice and portable for travelling, but lacks the punch needed for regular useProviding the same precision and power as other Rowenta models for much less, this is the best model for serious sewers and quiltersTop-tier performance at a reasonable pricePrecise and powerful steam for the most discerning userWhile this model offers decent performance, there are other low price options that offer better values
