Travel irons used to be squat clumpy objects with no style and minimal features. The Rowenta Compact Steam Iron takes a full-sized multi-function performer and streamlines it down to take-along size. You get adjustable temperature, a burst-of-steam button, and a 2-ounce transparent water gauge. The stainless steel soleplate has 200 microsteam outlets for scorch free even distribution, and the sleek pointed tip can handle wrinkles in collars, seams and narrow edges. The iron is dual voltage, and the handle folds flat for storage in the included pouch. The 1,000-watt iron weighs in at less than 2 pounds.
Rowenta Compact Steam Iron is about $40. Info at www.rowentausa.com.
