      I have had a Rowenta ($99) for about 7 years now at home. Still love
      it. I do use it up to 8 hours a day some times in the year. The auto
      shut off is my only complaint, but just because I don't like to wait. I
      do like the fact that it weighs much more than most other home models,
      less work to set pleats and such. The water you use can help to extend
      the life of an iron. Distilled is best, but any filtered will be better
      than tap.
      Good luck.

      We like Rowentas. They have given us good service, though we have
      killed 3
      so far - but two of them were by dropping them point-first on a concrete

      floor (not intentionally, really!! <g>). The other one lasted for about
      years, then finally got so it would turn off randomly (not the
      auto-shut-off) and then not restart for a while. The workhorse we had
      before the Rowentas was a Black and Decker, but I believe their quality
      is not as good as it was then. HTH.
