I'm wary of buying one after reading all the horror stories warning about they leak and break down. Yet, I also keep hearing that they're the best irons on the market and how others swear that they will last for years. There seems to be no middle ground- they're either the best iron and worth every penny or a total waste of money where a $10 Wal-Mart iron would be a better option. Is there a particular Rowenta model that I should look for or avoid? Or, is it just random luck that some people have no problems with their rowenta iron while the same rowenta model will be a lemon for other people? Did anybody still have problems with their Rowenta even if they followed all the directions- using the recommended type of water, dumping out the water after you were done ironing, etc?
