Made in Germany and loaded with features, this Rowenta Focus steam iron makes easy work of removing wrinkles from fabric. The iron’s smooth-gliding stainless-steel soleplate features 400 steam holes to ensure thorough steam distribution and time-saving efficiency, while its stainless-steel precision tip maneuvers effortlessly over collars, along seams, and between buttons. The iron works with tap water (no need for distilled) and powers on with a simple turn of the thermostat knob, which comes with clearly marked low to high heat settings and options for nylon, silk, wool, cotton, and linen. The iron auto-adjusts the steam output to match the soleplate temperature (turn auto-steam off for dry ironing). It also offers “burst of steam” to remove tough wrinkles and vertical steam for drapes and hanging garments. For safety and peace of mind, the iron shuts off automatically after 8 minutes if left unused in the upright position and after 30 seconds if left in the horizontal position or tipped over. An anti-calcium system prevents impurities for clean steam, and a self-clean system flushes out loose mineral deposits for optimal performance. From work shirts to table linen, the Rowenta Focus steam iron gets the job done.

Since I'm not making things to sell or use it on the daily basis, after hours of comparison, I decided to buy the DW5080, it was right on my price range and did everything I needed it to do. Once the package arrived I couldn't wait to tear it open and begin using my new iron. It's not lightweight, it is definitely sturdy, so just be aware of that. Read the instruction that came in the box carefully and follow the instruction for first time use. If you are like me, I want to make sure my tools last as long as they can.
Okay onto the iron itself.
- The cord is a little bit longer than my older iron (maybe about 2-3 inches longer).
- The water tank is definitely bigger
- The steam holes is definitely more than my old iron
- There are several settings for how much steam you want to use in each project
- There is a self cleaning tab (I do this at least every other week since I do not use it as often)
- The heat setting knob is smooth, not like my old iron it feels like the combination lock where I need to hear it click to know it's in the right settings
- The pointed tip is perfect for pleats, collars, tabs, and so on
- The iron heats up in a minute maybe less (I really didn't set the stopwatch for this)
- It automatically shuts off after a few minutes of non-use
- To turn it on I just lay it flat for a second and stand it back up
- With this iron it takes me 5-15 minutes (depending on how many yards of fabric I have). The old iron takes me 15-25 minutes (depending on how many yard of fabric I have).
Even the hubby commented on how well and quickly he was able to iron his dress shirt with this iron.
If you are looking to buy an iron, go with Rowenta, I'm super impressed with the quality of this iron and highly recommend it.
If you found my written review helpful, please click “yes” that my review was helpful. I certainly appreciate the feedback. Thank you!!!
First impression: the iron itself is quite heavy compared to the others I was looking at in stores. The sole plate is super nice and I like the plethora of steam holes. The first thing I did after unboxing the unit was read every instruction, and boy am I glad. It contained all kinds of tiny bits of information to keep the iron working like new (maybe those who experienced problems didn't heed the manufacturers instructions?). After going through the initial set-up process of the iron I quickly grabbed a garment which I didn't mind ruining, if it came to that, and gave this German beast a go. At first I was only getting about 80% of the wrinkles out. But that's because I had the settings incorrect. Once I had it dialed in, the iron removed all of the wrinkles with ease. Once done though, be sure to drain the unit per the manufacturers instructions. Below I've listed a few of the pros and cons so check them out and please give this a thumbs up if you found it helpful.
Heats up rather quickly.
Lights are useful to know when the iron is up to temperature.
The steam from this machine is incredible.
The buttons we're easy to push and the dials was easy to understand and adjust.
Filling and draining the unit is much easier than I expected*
Long enough cord for most situations.
With the right settings it's easy to remove all wrinkles quite quickly.
Very sturdy and solid unit*
The biggest concern I had with this unit is the placement of the settings dial. It was easy to bump with my knuckles while using and this would throw the temperature off (see photos). This could be off concern if it bumps the temperature too high for the cloth material being ironed. After my first couple shirts though, I had the hang of how to grip the iron without bumping the dial. If this had happened constantly while ironing I would've given the iron 3-4 stars but because I was able to overcome the issue it didn't negate my positive experience.
*A bit on the heavier side like others mentioned
*When filling it's easy to go past the max mark which the instructions specifically say not to do. However, it's simple enough to drain some water out and carry on.
Again, I hope this helped and if it did, let Amazon know by hitting the button below!
Disclaimer: I've only had this guy for a shortwhile and it's been successfully used twice on roughly 10 shirts of different materials. If anything changes I'll be sure to update the review, thanks!
