Reduced Ironing Times

According to the manufacturers themselves, the Rowenta DG5030 is said to cut your ironing time in half because it produces 3 times more steam than a usual steam iron. If the steam released is 3 times more potent and great in amount than there is a deeper penetration of the steam vapors into the fabric, this allows them to remove wrinkles or press sharp creases in the fabric very easily. It is also worth mentioning that this feature comes at a reasonably high power cost of about 1750 watts.

Ease of Use

The soleplate of the DG5030 is built out of stainless steel that adds a bit of consistency to the overall product. Additionally, there are steam vents distributed upon the soleplate that allows for an even output of steam; the tip of the iron has even smaller vents for more precision when ironing stubborn fabric. The trigger for the steam is located right in front of the handle near where your index finger would normally be, and when it is activated, steam flows from the water tank to the iron via the 6-foot long cord. The water tank is also spacious enough to hold enough water for a session of about one and a half hour. You can even use tap water for the Rowenta DG5030 provided that the tap water is not extremely hard if that is so then a 50% mixture of distilled and tap water is advised.

Steam Functionality

Once you have filled the tank with water, wait about 7 minutes as the steam takes some time to get ready. You can also keep the iron at vertical when this process is in motion. The temperature controlling dial is located below the handle from where you can control the intensity of the heat.

The high-powered steam action of the Rowenta DG5030 makes it very effective and effortless to root out tough creases and wrinkles.
