About The Product

The Rowenta Compact Professional Space Saving Ironing Board is an ironing board that is designed to give you plenty of surface space to iron on, but when you aren’t using it, you can fold it up and store it away.

You can adjust the height on the board so that you aren’t hunched over while ironing, which will help you feel more comfortable while doing a relatively tedious chore.

Notable features of the Rowenta Compact Professional Space Saving Ironing Board include:

  • XL professional size when open and perfect stability
  • XS size when folding for easy storage and transportation
  • ​Large ironing surface 54'' x 18 ''
  • Extra thick cover & Pad
  • Hanger racks, large steam station and steam iron rest, wheels

This professional ironing board features a 54” x 18” ironing surface so you can iron more efficiently, and the corrosion-resistant metallic mesh platform conducts the heat to give you perfectly pressed clothes with minimal effort. Also, you’ll find that the mesh with this ironing board is going to last you a lot longer than other brands.

The ironing board is more than just your run of the mill ironing board. It features an integrated hanger rack for your convenience, an extra-large iron rest so you don’t have to worry about resting it on the surface of the board, which could be dangerous, and there’s a shelf under the board where you can put a steam station.

For added convenience, the Rowenta Compact Professional Space Saving Ironing Board comes with aluminum legs and feet that have wheels attached so you can easily transport the board without having to carry it.

What People Had To Say

Rowenta IB9100 Ironing Board


When looking at what people had to say about the Rowenta Compact Professional Space Saving Ironing Board, we noticed that many people were impressed by the unit and they thoroughly enjoyed using it to iron with.

Of these positive comments, customers liked that this was a very sturdy, heavy-duty ironing board. They didn’t experience any wobbling to rocking while they were using it, which is a big safety concern with other boards.

Customers also were impressed by the size of the board. They shared that they were able to cut their ironing time in half and they feel they get better results because of it. Other comments about the ironing board touch on how easy it is to set the board up (and take it down), and the wheels on it are a nice touch, too.

With the good, there will be some bad. Of the people who were less than impressed with their experience with the ironing board, the most common complaint was that there are plastic parts where the iron goes.

Customers were confused whether or not they should remove those plastic pieces and leave the exposed metal, as there is nothing in the owner’s manual directing them on what to do with said plastic.

Other concerns people had with this ironing board include: the part of the board that folds up is not the same metal mesh as the rest of the board. Instead, this area is actually plastic, and when ironed on creates a “sickly-sweet smell” because the plastic is actually being melted.

Other customers pointed out that the metal mesh of their board was warped and it would move whenever they ironed in it.

Our Recommendation

Ironing is a chore that not many people enjoy doing—except for grandmas and people who are really into crisp lines.

As tedious as it may be, there are times when you need to look put together and tidy, like for job interviews, meeting your partner’s parents, and other significant events that happen throughout your life.

For these instances, an ironing board like the Rowenta Compact Professional Space Saving Ironing Board can really make a difference.

When you have a large ironing task before you, you don’t want to iron on a surface that could become damaged by the heat and steam. With this ironing board, you have a larger work space that is covered in a metal mesh, so you can safely iron larger sections of clothing at a time, thus cutting down the ironing significantly.

There is a useful stand where you can set your steaming system and a metal rack where you can set the iron when you are repositioning the garment.

We are particularly fond of this ironing board because it can fold up nice and compact when it is no longer being used. When folded up, it’s the perfect size for storing in a closet without taking up too much valuable space. Also, we like that it has wheels so you don’t have to worry about carrying the ironing board from one room to the next.

This ironing board has a lot of good things going for it and it would be an excellent addition to any laundry room. We believe that when you need to use an ironing board, you’ll be happy with this one.
