Steam Iron

Recommended Posts

I got rid of an older Rowenta (cheaper model) that I was unhappy with because it dripped water while I ironed and got a Shark ..my opinion of the Shark is that it's too heavy,

it doesn't get hot at the lower levels & you have to iron on "high" on all fabrics;

you have to constantly run the iron over the fabric many times before the wrinkles are out (it is 1750 watts so this shouldn't be happening);

also it doesn't "steam" unless you press the "steam" button.

It's also bottom-heavy and tips over; actually it tips off my ironing board when I walk away - so I can't trust it.

I am very dissatisified with it and will never buy it again. I'll go back to Sunbeam, etc. Not even another Rowenta ....

Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003
