- Iron has a self-cleaning feature that is designed to help remove builtup mineral deposits from hard or impure water.
- Iron has adjustable settings to control not only the amount of steam produced but also allows settings for different angles of the steam spray.
- Unit has a multiple featured automatic shutoff which will turn the iron off quickly if left in the horizontal position or dropped but will allow a longer time if merely set in the vertical standby position.
- The narrow shape of the nose point is very effective for reaching small or narrow areas.

Rowenta DW8080 Cons:
