Unique double tip soleplate

The Panasonic NI-W810CS has an elliptical shape with a dual point sole plate which allows unidirectional movements. This prevents U-turns and saves as much as 25% of ironing time. This design is unique to Panasonic; the Panasonic NI-W950A and the Panasonic NI-W750TS have similar soleplates.

Curved ceramic soleplate

A ceramic soleplate is smoother than a stainless steel soleplate. The Panasonic NI-W810CS, therefore, has an excellent glide and makes for smooth ironing. The curved soleplate reduces tugging and allows superior control around pleats or other tricky areas. It also optimizes steam distribution.

Custom controls

This iron has user-friendly buttons that are conveniently placed. The temperature dial allows for easy selection of up to five different fabrics ensuring that you work at just the right temperature.

Adjustable steam with dry option

This Panasonic model gives the user control over the amount of steam generated. You can vary the steam output based on the specific requirements of the fabric. In addition, you can use this as a dry iron especially if only a light touch up is required.

Auto Power-off

Like most modern irons the Panasonic NI-W810CS has 3 modes auto power off that cuts power when the iron is left idle after some time. This is an important safety feature.

Jet of steam and spray mist button

To deal with some specific tough creases, you just have to use the jet of steam function which releases a shot of super hot steam. However this jet is not as powerful as that of the Rowenta DW5080 but nonetheless it gets the job done. If you require extra moisture, spray mist will come in handy.

Vertical steaming

This feature allows you to use this iron like a steamer. You can straighten clothes as they hang.

1500 watts of power

This is medium range power but nonetheless good enough for a non-professional iron. However, there are irons such the sunbeam Aero ceramic iron that have a higher wattage and cost much less.

Panasonic NI-W810CS Pros

1. It saves ironing time due to the large dual tip soleplate.
2. There is less tugging as a result of the curved soleplate
3. The ceramic coated soleplate offers superior glide and easy cleaning
4. Adjustable steam function to suit any need.
5. It has anti-calc and self -clean functions.

Panasonic NI-W810CS Cons

1. It does not get hot enough for professional use
2. Some buyers have found that it malfunctions after a slight period of use.


This is an iron that removes much of the hassle associated with ironing especially tugging. It also reduces ironing time and offers a smoother experience thanks to its ceramic coated soleplate. However, if you would not mind an iron with more features at almost the same price, the Black and Decker 2030 is a good candidate. It is probably a better choice than the Panasonic NI-W810CS.
