Product Benefits
  • German-made – This one of its main selling points because buyers would naturally trust a German-made appliance more than a Chinese-made one because of its durability.
  • The soleplate is stainless steel but coated with an ultra-thin silicate coating which provides it with a tougher and smoother surface so that it has better non-stick and scratch-resistant properties.
  • All over the soleplate are micro steam holes for optimal steam diffusion. There is also a precision tip with a precision shot zone for steam concentration when the shot of steam is activated which gives off an output of 210 g/min.
  • The pump injection technology also delivers 30% more steam into the fabric compared to other irons.
  • The Ready-Temp, digitally controls the soleplate temperature with a LED display to indicate when the desired temperature level has been reached.
  • Rowenta DW9280 Steam Force Iron comes with 1-year warranty.
The Negative Things
  • Heavy (Compared to some Iron models) – The Rowenta DW9280 is a pretty heavy iron at close to 4 lbs compared to say, the Panasonic NI-C78SR which only weighs about 3 lbs. For some, this will be tasking on the wrist especially when there’s a large basket of clothes in the equation.
  • Dark coloured water tank – A few users have made this complaint that the water level is hard with the dark coloured tank.
  • Need for a frequent water refills – Because of the high volume of steam output, you will need to refill the tank quite frequently. Some buyers have mentioned refilling is needed every 3 shirts or so. It would also tend to have reduced steam when the water is less than half the tank.
  • Defective – there are also complaints of the iron breaking down. This defect ranges from a faulty steam burst button to the iron quit working completely. There has been a range of different complaints altogether however, to be fair, the complaints are far fewer than the positive compliments and many of its users have confessed they will buy the product again if they have to and would recommend it to a friend.


The price a little bit higher than that of some other designs but it is justified because it is one of Rowenta top modern designs providing a professional service, more longevity and a safer usage compared to some other products.
