For professional-quality results at home, turn to the Pro Master steam iron by Rowenta. The 1700-watt iron features a full metal shield and a scratch-resistant, stainless-steel soleplate with 400 micro holes for an even distribution of wrinkle-removing steam. Gliding effortlessly across all fabrics, the highly polished soleplate includes a rounded back end, for a smooth back and forth motion, and a precision-point tip that makes easy work of maneuvering over collars, along seams, and in between buttons. Adjust the continuous steam output (40g/min) and soleplate temperature as needed to accommodate a wide range of fabrics like silk or wool. The iron’s powerful burst of steam function (150g/min) works great for thicker fabrics and makes unruly wrinkles quickly melt away. Holding the iron upright, and with the touch of a button, the iron delivers an extra-long burst of vertical steam—perfect for removing wrinkles from hanging garments, delicate items, or drapes. Additional highlights include an anti-drip system to prevent spitting or leaking at low heat settings, a self-cleaning anti-calc system that flushes out loose mineral deposits for long-lasting optimal performance, and three-way automatic shut-off for safety—the iron turns itself off if left unused after 8 minutes in the upright position or after 30 seconds in the horizontal position or if tipped over. Successfully complete any ironing task with the professional-grade Rowenta DW8080 Pro Master steam iron. Continuous steam diffusion: Tip, side and heart.

I purchased this iron in January and by August the steam button stopped working. The iron was under warranty so I was asked to return it for a repair. After two weeks I received the iron dirty and the soleplate was scratched. Rowenta did not do the repair. They sent it to a local appliance shop near their offices in Colorado Springs. Rowenta never communicated with me on the timing of the repair and ignored my email requesting an update.
After years of being a loyal Rowenta consumer I am moving on.
+ Iron is heavy and has a large base, which helps press the fabric during ironing sessions.
+ The nose section is pointed, which lets you get into corners a bit better.
+ A good amount of steam comes out when you press the top button.
+ The iron plate is polished stainless steel. It glided over my clothes better than my cheapo non-slip treated iron.
- Gently shaking the iron while upright and with the fill cap closed results in water spewing out from the plate bottom.
- The digital selector dial was not accurate. A few times while turning the dial the LED display on the left side would be hopping around. Other than a digital display of iron temperature, there's no reason to have a digital control. This is a case of making something more complex, which introduces more stuff to break.
- Once or twice it felt like the cord was not sufficiently connected to the iron base at the swivel connector and I wondered if there were electrical shorts. This makes me doubt the iron's durability and reliability.
- I don't like that the steam button is on the top of the handle. I use steam more than water spray so for me, it's not ergonomic using my thumb to both deploy steam and control the iron. The trigger control for water spray works well. I would swap functions with the buttons because in my experience, I typically spray while aiming, but steam while moving.
- No cord wrap feature, nor a tab on the plug to lock itself against the cord.
~ My clothes came out wrinkle free... but they also come out wrinkle free with a $20 iron! I think $70 is probably the right price point for this iron. It's only an iron.
~ I don't think the off-white color of the cord matches the unit. Black cord would be better. Also, for the price of the unit a lighted plug end would be nice to alert you that it's plugged into power.
~ The fill cap worked well and adequately sealed after being closed.

Things I don't like:
1.Cord is not long enough.
2.Very heavy - even before water added.
3.Cannot tell water reservoir level whilst ironing - which is vital considering how much water it uses.
4.Stainless steel plate drags when ironing, in comparison to the ceramic plate I am used to on the Tefal iron.
5.No water filling jug supplied - which is normal to be included when purchasing this grade of iron.
6.When resting the iron on its base between items, it discharges a huge amount of steam - everytime. Don't know why - could be dangerous if you have kids at ironing board height. It also wastes the already precious water reservoir.
Things I like:
1. Gets much hotter than my Tefal. This iron is 1700W and this really does make a difference.
2. Super microsteam power - Has 400 holes in the base plate. It cuts through the creases on a tumble dried, week old, Egyptian cotton duvet cover with the greatest of ease. Has cut my ironing time by at least half. Isn't this what we all want from an iron????
3.Quality build. Does not feel cheap or plasticky.
Hope this helps you in your decision!
Thank you for reading.
UPDATE: Have had the iron repaired twice and it is still leaking at the bottom - so disappointed!
NEW UPDATE: Rowenta finally replaced my iron. It is working beautifully!
New iron came in Dec 2019. Just 4 months later, this iron is also pouring water from the bottom. So done with #Rowenta. I have moved on to another brand. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS IRON!!!!
The only two small criticisms I have
1) A small water leak occurs when ironing, but not all the time.. I don't know what triggers this leak yet as i've still getting used to it. I'm not concerned about it now as the water is clean, but as the iron ages will it turn into a brown stain..
2) It uses a lot of water! Again not a concern, it's probably the price you pay for having the steam work the way it does.
The iron is not cheap, but when you consider the cost of paying someone else to wash and press your clothes at the dry cleaners and the results you will get its a no brainer. I'll save $3.50 for a basic press service ($6 for dry cleaning) per shirt, so this will pay for itself in no time.
However, the replacement iron is only 2 months old and the spray button is no longer working. I paid a lot of money for this iron and cannot exchange it at this point. Needless to say, I am extremely dissatisfied.
The iron has a nice weight to it, not overly heavy but enough that you don't need to push down on it while ironing; you can just let it glide. It certainly steams well, as the name would suggest, I often have puffs of steam coming out from under the ironing board which I never had with my previous iron. As a result of this steam, for lack of a better word, penetration I actually find myself very rarely using the spray button. The only time I need it is when I accidentally iron in a good crease, I am still a novice at this after all. I never timed myself when using my previous iron so I don't know if it just perception or reality but I find myself requiring less time to iron.
One of the comments I read while looking up this iron was that it was easy to get caught on the temperature wheel and change it. It is very difficult to accidentally increase the temperature but if you reach for the iron quickly you can catch the wheel and turn it down a little. I minor inconvenience as I find that as I get used to the iron this rarely happens: when I first got the iron it did happen a couple times per ironing "session."
I also saw mention that the water tank was small and required frequent refills. I find I can easily do a weeks worth of shirts/pants on one tank (3-5 shirts, 1-2 pants). This is no different than what I had with my previous iron.
My only complaint would be that it didn't come with a filler cup, you would expect an iron at this price point would include one.
All-in-all I really like this iron, and the price isn't too bad if you get it on sale.
La calidad es excelente. No por nada es la plancha numero uno del 2018.
Es algo pesada, lo cual ayuda mucho, pero a su vez, despues de muchas prendas comienza a sentirse un poco si lo usa una persona sin mucha fuerza. Pero es por mucho una excelente ayuda.
