Compared to its predecessors, the Rowenta DW8080 has the seal of quality from Germany. Even though it’s not winning any beauty pageants with its gray color tone, the functionality is still quite high.
It uses an impressive 1700 watts of power which gives it an extra kick for any ironing job. Rapid heating and quick steam generation are possible due to the large power consumption. It’s faster than other irons in its league. Removing wrinkles from difficult fabrics like wool becomes easier due to the efficient heat setting under the ergonomic handle.
It may look like a broad iron, but the precision tip allows you to attack creases in the trickiest of spots. Whether it’s the zip region, under collar or button strips, say goodbye to those wrinkles.
Furthermore, the stainless steel base plate will help you in pressing out those crinkles with ease. Compared to ceramic plates, steel does not get black and therefore provides a lesser chance of water spots. If the baseplate and precision tip hadn’t convinced you of this iron’s straightening capabilities, then there are the 400 steam holes as well. Compared to other meager irons with small holes centered around the plate’s middle, this iron is different. The micro openings are evenly distributed across the base plate, making it easier to iron out any garment.
The steam control is commendable as well. Each material has different requirements, so you can change the amount of steam output. This is because the difference in fabrics like Nylon, Wool, Cotton etc., require different steam settings.
