Iron/Steamer Recommendations

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I realize that we had a LONG thread on steamers recently, but I was wondering if Forum members have any products that they swear by for eliminating wrinkles. I currently use a $30 Black and Deckerwith lighht starch on broadcloths and a few stubborn twills, with a mean ironing time of 12 minutes/shirt (1hr 15 minutes/week for shirts and two or three pants. Wool slacks are pressed and drycleaned). links and prices appreciated.

I had been using a questionable hand held model from Sunbeam for years. It did the job but took a long time and was a pain in the butt to keep filling w water. About a month ago I bought a Jiffy with the metal head and I havent looked back since. The thing produces so much steam youd think you're in a sauna - enough to do both sides of my pants at once. Further - the build of the unit is superb - makes me proud that it was made in America. Its a little pricey, but it will pay for itself many times over.

Rowenta - any of the 1400 watt models - hands down the best iron I've ever owned. Almost makes ironing a pleasure.

http://www.amazon.com/exec....=507846 I have this steamer, it's apparently the same one Chuck uses, it's quite great. About $100 or so shipped if you buy it on Friday with the coupon.

Absolutely. Whenever I visit my mom, she want to iron my clothes to give me more freetime, I want to iron my clothes because she has a Rowenta.

Rowenta Pro, decent weigh, okay steam, $90 at Target. Rowenta's travel steamer, however, is worthless in my opinion. The "E-Steamer" is much better. In fact, my wife and I use our little E-steam unit much more than our big Jiffy commercial type steamer. I'd love to find one of those puffed out shirt steamers that the Cleaners use.

Is this the same as the "Steam n' Press?" I just received one as a gift and it's pretty much useless. No reservior to speak of, spits water all over the place, and handles awkwardly over all fabrics.

I think that's either the new or deluxe version of what I had. Mine was worthless, about as much steam as a hot cup of coffee (but less consistent) . . . I even took the first one back as defective, the second one produced the same amount. I kept it out of laziness, I think it's in my basement someplace.

I bought this Conair off ebay and like it quite well for what I paid (~$30). I have only light steaming needs. One of these days I'll probably upgrade, but this is satisfactory for now. If I was going retail I'd get this one that drizz and Chuck have. It is on "Friday Sale" today for $99, I see.
