The Rowenta First Class Compact iron is the perfect travel partner. The sleek ergonomic design provides comfort while ironing and the Microsteam stainless steel soleplate has superior glide and a precision tip for faster, easier ironing. True dual voltage makes the iron ideal for travel and the handle folds flat for compact storage.
This Rowenta iron is perfect for us. We travel alot and no one likes to take a full size iron around with them nor do we like relying on our destination having an iron that we are comfortable using. This iron is a mere 1.65 pounds and folds down easily to less than 8 inches. The Microsteam soleplate allows the iron to glide along the fabric – no matter what fabric we are working with. There is dual voltage so we always have the exact temperature we want or need. I have had a small travel iron before that didn’t have a steam function. This Rowenta has a powerful steam function which works great no matter what fabric I am working with.
The handle folds down making it even more portable. I not only need to take an iron with me when we travel but also when I am headed out to sewing classes. A nice powerful, portable iron is the perfect solution for ironing before sewing! All my seams will lie nice and flat making sewing a perfectly straight line much more effective. It is even designed to be easily filled from a water tap (or water fountain as is sometimes what I find myself using). This iron also comes with a convenient pouch for carrying while traveling.
