Blog Bash Giveaway 1: Rowenta Iron Giveaway!! $100 ARV!!

Congrats to js22!






Our first Blog Bash sponsor is...


"Rowenta creates home appliances with a streamlined design that convey a sense of well-being.Beauty and intelligence inform each and every appliance: steam irons, steam generators,vacuum cleaners, hair dryers, hair styling or beauty appliances."

We reviewed and are giving away the Rowenta Focus Steam Iron:
Rowenta Focus Features:
-3-Way Smart Auto-Off: turns the iron off in 8 minutes if vertical and 30 seconds if horizontal or tipped over
-Vertical Steam: allows to remove wrinkles from drapes and hanging garments
-Burst of Steam: steam is concentrated at the tip to remove hard-to-reach wrinkles
-Comfort Handle: provides comfort and control while ironing
-Large Soft-Touch Rear: provides extra stability when iron is on its heel
-Large Water Tank: holds 10 ounces
-Covered Filling Inlet: helps prevent spilling of water and spotting clothes
-1700 watts/weight: 3 lbs. 6 oz.

Microsteam400 Stainless Steel Sole plate: provides a smooth surface with excellent glide; 400 micro steam holes provide perfect steam distribution and high precision tip delivers steam to hard-to-reach areas
Auto Steam: adjusts steam output to sole plate temperature

High precision tip: Delivers unsurpassed ironing performance in even the hardest to reach areas

What we thought:  The Focus was a really awesome iron.  It has top of the line features, is easy to use and gives you professional results every time. As the mother of 2 young children, I especially love the auto-off features...if it gets tipped over or left laying flat, it shuts off within 30 seconds.  I also like the vertical steam feature.  It allows me to steam out wrinkles in hanging garments.  ABCD Diaries gives the Rowenta Focus Iron an A+!

Buy It: Find an awesome selection of steam irons at Rowenta!

Win It: Rowenta has generously offered one ABCD Diaries reader the Focus Iron, a $100 value!
