The DW2171 1600 Watt AccessSteam Iron by Rowenta is specially designed for ease and efficiency at the same time. This lightweight iron has microsteam stainless-steel soleplate with 300 microholes which allows perfect steam distribution. The temperature and amount of steam for a fabric is automatically determined by the auto-steam thermostat. The precision tip makes the most difficult to reach areas accessible and the vertical steam helps to remove the wrinkles from hanging garments to drapes. This 1600 Watt Iron having 8.45 oz water tank includes an anti-drip system to help prevent spitting or leaking at low heat settings, a self-clean system that flushes out loose mineral deposits for long-lasting performance and clean steam , and 3 way smart automatic shut off for safety—the iron turns off automatically if left unused after 8 minutes in the upright position, or after 30 seconds in the horizontal position or tipped over.
