What I Like About This Iron

  • Better steam distribution across the entire soleplate. This allows for superior steam penetration and more efficient ironing.
  • Designed to use normal tap water that is untreated without spitting or leaking
  • Electronic pump that pushes more steam into fabric for better ironing results. This iron is a better improvement compared to the DW6080 model
  •  The iron heats up quickly and gets between button holes without any hassle. It super glides across fabrics for a smooth ironing experience.
  • The faceplate of this steam iron is massive and knocks out wrinkles quickly and without a fuss.
  • Quilters have commented that this is a great iron to use for their work too
  • The nose section is pointed, which lets you get into corners a bit better.

What Needs To Be Improved 

  • Its hard to see the water level due to its blue finish. Not a critical issue but something to consider
  • Some say it makes noise from the internal pump
