LIGHT-WEIGHT VACUUM CLEANERS More info
Rowenta launches the first all-in-one vacuum and cleaner in 1976: the Bully. It vacuums both water and dust (it vacuums up water but does not wash). Every detail is carefully considered to make it as practical as possible: vertical vacuum, large capacity, 5 multi-directional wheels, high power suction, and integrated noise reduction technology. It's the beginning of the vacuum revolution! More powerful than ever before, the first vacuum cleaners quickly become a flagship product for Rowenta. As a result, the company focuses on more elaborate and lighter designs.

With this, the brand offers a new innovation: the "Heat and steam" system provides continuous heat and steam meaning you do not need to wait for the iron to re-heat.

NEW LASER SOLEPLATE More info
Rowenta develops a new soleplate, Laser, which is very strong thanks to a new process used to harden the stainless steel. A system of holes to concentrate and diffuse the steam makes smoothing more effective.
