It is the harried holiday traveler’s worst nightmare to arrive at a hotel for an important occasion, open the suitcase and find the perfect outfit a wrinkled mess. The fabric can’t be ironed and a frantic call to the front desk reveals there is no steamer. With over a century of experience, the experts at Rowenta have probably encountered the same travel disaster. Instead of getting steamed up, though, they got to work.
Addressing the frustrations of “wrinkle-haters” everywhere is the Rowenta DR6015 Ultrasteam Brush. Known for combining high levels of performance with ergonomic design, Rowenta created a hand-held steaming brush that provides quick touch-ups and wrinkle-wrangling in a flash at home or on the road.
Lightweight and easy-to-use, the Ultrasteam features a wide steam head that allows for maximum steam dispersal. The user simply fills the removable 1.86 ounce water tank, plugs it in, waits about 50 seconds for the water to heat, and watches in relief as 800 watts of power make worrisome wrinkles disappear. An ergonomic trigger in the comfortable handle allows for precise, on-demand control of the steam output. The unit also comes with a handy removable fabric brush to pick up loose hairs and removable lint pad. It hangs conveniently away when not in use, or packs into a provided travel pouch for on-the-go-action.
Powerful vertical steaming action provides quick and easy wrinkle removal from the most delicate to the most difficult of fabrics. A variable steam control dial allows the user to adjust the steam to just the right amount – powerful for thick fabrics or light for delicate. The Rowenta Ultrasteam Brush packs a surprising amount of power into such a compact size. Use it to get steamed up about wrinkles, and then watch them quickly disappear!
And when just a touch-up, a quick steam press, or travel ironing on the go is required, who wants to haul out a bulky iron and ironing board? These are the pressing times when the Rowenta DA1560 Travel-Ready Compact Steam Iron fits the bill. It’s hard to believe that Rowenta managed to pack all the features of its larger irons into this powerful, compact performer.
This full-featured steam iron easily handles even the most challenging of ironing tasks at home or on the road. Its sleek lightweight design is easy on the wrists and easy to use. A highly-polished, Microsteam stainless steel soleplate with 200 holes provides an even glide across all fabrics with precise steam distribution. The high-precision tip reaches hard-to-iron places, like collars or the areas between buttons, ensuring a crisp finished appearance for the entire garment.
The genius of the iron/steamer is its multi-function steaming capabilities, using only tap water in a 2.4 ounce water tank. The user chooses whether to use steam or not, decides whether the fabric requires a consistent stream of steam, or directs a burst of steam for extra steaming strength on thicker fabrics. A convenient vertical steam option even allows the iron to serve as a steamer when needed for curtains or a quick suit touch-up on the road.
Weighing in at just over a pound and a half, this all-purpose clothing care tool is packed with 1000 watts of power. Variable temperature control makes it perfect for all fabric types. It even has a handle that folds flat for compact storage or packing in the included travel pouch. A true dual voltage switch (120 or 230) makes the iron ideal for travel. The Rowenta travel iron performs extremely well when pressed into service.
