Fashion designers and DIY crafters alike will appreciate the fabric-pressing, wrinkle-removing power of this Rowenta DW5197 Focus steam iron. Named the Official Partner of Fashion, the German-made iron offers a sleek, stylish profile and impressive steam capabilities that will not only inspire but will also keep up with the creative vision—from first formulation to final runway walk. Unlike other steam irons, the Focus does not come with an automatic shut-off feature, which means it will continue to perform even during longer stationary tasks like applying appliqués, embossing, or heat sealing a hem—no need to worry about it shutting off part way through. The 1725-watt iron features a smooth-gliding stainless-steel soleplate with 400 steam holes to ensure thorough steam distribution and time-saving efficiency, while its pointed stainless-steel precision tip makes easy work of getting into pleats, along seams, and between buttons. The iron works with regular tap water and powers on with a simple turn of the ergonomic thermostat knob, which comes with clearly marked low to high heat settings with options for silk, wool, cotton, and linen. The iron auto-adjusts the steam output to match the soleplate temperature. Even more, the iron’s burst-of-steam function (180g/min) helps remove extra-tough wrinkles, while its vertical-steam capability accommodates hanging garments. The self-cleaning iron’s anti-calc system prevents calcium build up and impurities for clean steam and long-lasting performance, and its anti-drip feature allows for low-temperature ironing of delicate fabrics without the risk of spitting or leaking. A true creative companion, the Rowenta Focus steam iron offers powerful performance, time-saving efficiency, and ultra-reliable results.
Very nice iron. Handles beautifully

Very nice iron. Handles beautifully, produces a LOT of steam. The narrow front, as described by others, makes it very easy to get into pleats and other tight corners and gives a general feeling of greater control and precision. Handles very well. Easy to fill — no leaks. You DO have to remember that it’s not auto-shutoff — we unplug irons anyway when done, but for some, this is a cautionary note. Overall – very pleased with this. Very nice iron, easy to handle, very effective, good design and a reasonable price.
This is the best iron I’ve EVER used

This is the best iron I’ve EVER used. Made in Germany, it’s about 3 lbs and is very sturdy, but you can crease your pants the night before and the crease is still in them the next night (without using starch). Definitely put the steam setting on low or else you’ll spend all your time refilling it with water. Definitely made for non-clumsy adults, this iron is truly amazing!!!! I hate to iron anything but this iron has made it quite enjoyable.
Lots of steam in a solid iron

A good, solid iron that produces a lot of steam. It’s easy to see how much water is in the tank, and it holds quite a bit at once, but it also empties fairly quickly (after 20-30 minutes of ironing). The one issue with this iron is the cord and its effect on the iron’s upright (resting) position–it makes setting the iron upright just a bit precarious. The iron sits a bit more straight up than other irons I’ve used that lean their weight back on the base of the handle, and the rubber housing for the cord at the handle base can throw that balance forward toward the plate when I don’t set it down carefully.
For quilting and sewing.

Even though I paid slightly more than I wanted to I am very pleased that I decided to purchase this iron. I have always used Rowenta and after a decade needed to please my old iron in my sewing room. This model is the only one that does NOT have an automatic shut off. For sewing or crafting it is very inconvenient if your iron shuts off every eight minutes that it’s idle. This iron presses like a dream with plenty of steam, heats up fast and fills easily. Very satisfied.
Gotta love that German engineering

So far I’m happy with the DW5197. This replaced my Pro Master that I’ve had for about 5 years that developed a short somewhere around the ball socket that the cord comes into the iron and also the housing sort of warped and bubbled out. I had read about that defect online. That was the first Rowenta that I’ve owned and by far the most expensive Iron I’ve ever purchased. I’d hoped that it would have lasted longer, but it was still the best iron I’ve ever had, and I’ve had a lot of them.
Very happy with this iron.

I bought this for my wife, as she had to get a new one and bought a cheapy at a department store. I couldn’t stand to see her struggle with that all the time. So I surprised her with this one. I wanted to get a really good one, and didn’t care too much of how much it cost, but around 80 bucks, it turned out to be a great deal, as she has never been happier using this one. The other cheap one she had, which was still only a few weeks old, had leaked water every time she used it. This one never has. In fact, I had a banquet to go to last weekend, and had almost forgot about it. We had an hour to get ready, and I had bought a new shirt for the occasion, but it was still wrinkled from the packaging. She fired up her iron and in no time, like a few minutes, she had it all ironed and fresh looking. I like that.
Pay the price!!!

If you love to iron than this iron is not for you. If you are like me, and dread going through a pile of your husbands work shirts than your ship has come in. His shirts run the gammet from 100% cotton to polyester blend. When I used to iron the cotton shirts I would run the iron back and forth over the front many times to get it flat. With this steaming monster it dives right in and takes no guff. The shirt is crisp and flat and I can even get in the nooks and. Crannies. And it does it fast. I go through the pile in no time at all. I recently broke my leg and my husband has taken over the ironing. He had heard me going back and forth before buying it because of the price. So when he took over he asked what it cost. I said ” you don’t want to know” and he said ” I don’t care, we should have gotten this ages ago”. I wish we had!! It irons dedicates nicely too because the temp can be lowered and the pointed nose does a nice job getting between the beading. Too address some concerns I read:
