Rowenta DW8080 Professional Micro Steam Iron

The most appropriate weight of an iron is about one and a half kilograms. If it is higher you will have a harder time ironing while one that is too light could mean low quality. If this aspect is particularly important to you, we recommend an iron with a boiler, which as we have seen is lighter without a water tank.

When choosing an iron there are several factors that must be taken into consideration . The types of this appliance available on the market are numerous, but to give an expository order to our guide, we can make a first fundamental distinction in two broad categories: irons with internal tank and irons with external boiler . The structurally simpler and more compact models belong to the first group, since they integrate all the components essential for their operation into a single body. In the second group we find the irons that work with the water collection and steam production unit (boiler) separated from the work plate.

Before going into the following details of the iron , we must therefore know the strengths and weaknesses of the two product categories indicated above. Once the main category in which to move has been identified, the analysis will be more simplified to further refine our choice.

Iron with boiler

The irons with boiler making use of an external water tank , much bigger than that of a normal iron. They are suitable for those who have to iron a lot of linen, and therefore are well suited to large families. Or they are recommended for those who have many shirts to iron, the most difficult garment par excellence. They are also called irons with steam generator , precisely to emphasize the powerful high pressure steam capable of penetrating to the heart of the fabrics. Wrinkles and creases go away in one go, saving you time and effort. Moreover, given the large tank they allow you to have long ironing sessions . Then thanks to the continuous filling function it is possible to add water to the tank without having to wait until it is dry and the pressure has dropped.
