We are looking for a quality steam iron - preferably made in America. Is there such a thing anymore?

How in the world does one know where an small appliance like that is actually made nowadays?

Rowenta irons are good, or so I've been told. I think they're terribly overpriced, so when I need a new iron once every 10 or 15 years, I go with the cheap one that's on sale. Here's a link to some Rowenta's, though. They seem to be favored by people who do a lot of sewing, quilting, etc. and are often on sale at JoAnn Fabrics.

You can get a Rowenta at Homegoods, or Tuesday morning sometimes.

I have had one go bad after a year. I think they are better than most. Newer GE's and sunbeams leak water. I have kept an old standby GE , that was new old stock bought at an estate sale. It weighs a ton, and works great. Nice shiny chrome.

I have a Black & Decker that is very good but I do not know if it is made in the States.

Virtually every conceivable thing that can be purchased in the U.S. that involves electricity or batteries is made in China. I'm being general but not far off.

I am interested in buying a new clothes iron, but I don't think American-made is in the cards right now. Or ever. Unless, some designer happens to start making the equivalent of a titanium bike frame in a steam iron. And then it will cost $400.

Better Rowentas are made in Germany.

You can find some models that satisy your need here.I think that the place that the iron is created in isn't important,while the feature mater much.The device has a lot of useful feature with a reliable prize should be firstly considered .
