1750 watts of power

With such a high wattage, this is a pretty powerful steam iron. Even though it doesn’t heat up as fast as models such as the Rowenta DW5080 and the Rowenta DW9280, it heats up in a reasonable time.

However, some steam stations such as the Rowenta DG8520 take much lesser time compared to the Rowenta DG5030 pro iron steam station.

Steam output is also adjustable according to the needs of the fabric so you can get the best results.rowenta dg5030 steam iron heat feature

As a compliment, the soleplate has numerous steam holes located uniformly on its surface and even on the tip for efficient steam distribution.

33-ounce water tank

The water tank is definitely one of the most notable Rowenta DG5030 parts. Unlike traditional irons which require very frequent refills, the Rowenta DG5030 pressure iron and steamer will give you up to 90 minutes of continuous steaming without requiring a refill. This is due to an extra-large water tank that has a capacity of 33 ounces. With this iron, you do not have to use distilled water for refilling as it is not easily damaged by scale. You, therefore, can use tap water.


12-foot power cord

Obviously, the longer the power cord, the more convenient it will be to use your steam iron. Therefore when you choose an iron with a long power cord, you will have less hassle ironing. Unlike models like the Rowenta DW5197 whose power cord is only 8 inches, the Rowenta DG5030 offers a 12-foot power cord. Other irons with equally long power cords include the Oliso Pro TG1600 and the Rowenta DG7530.rowenta dg5030 steam iron station on ironing board
