To solve this problem, another Rowenta product is on the rise. Rowenta DG8520 comes with a 47 Oz water tank capacity and 1800-watt power.

These two models come with a similar feature list including- auto shutoff, anti-calcium, anti-drip, self-cleaning, and stainless steel soleplate with 400 micro holes.

The notable thing though the steam output is different. This model has a steam output of 120 gm per min while Rowenta DW9280 has a 210 gm per min steam output.

CHI 13101 with Ceramic Soleplate

CHI is another popular budget brand that you can rely on. This brand particularly comes with affordable ironing solutions within less budget.

As military uniforms are durable this CHI iron can solve your ironing problem much easier. It comes with Titanium Infused Ceramic Soleplate which provides smooth gliding over the fabrics.

This model is powered by 1700 watts, which seems slightly low to me. It comes with more than 300 micro steam holes and a ceramic soleplate to distribute the steam evenly all over the fabric.

It comes with Advanced Electronic Temperature Controls. This temperature control selector lets you choose your fabric type and sets the temperature accordingly, eliminating the guesswork.

A unique, adjustable steam lever goes from no steam to full power with just a quick slide. Even the electronic controls indicate when the iron is ready.

Panasonic NI-W810CS -360 quick ironing

Another well-known name in this ironing industry is Panasonic. Like the CHI brand, they also manufacture affordable steam irons within your budget.

Though the specification is on the lesser side the build quality is top-notch.

This NI-W810CS model has 1500-watt power with 360 quick ironing. The streamlined, ergonomic profile and elliptical soleplate glide in any direction to smooth out wrinkles, reach between buttons, and make short work of collars, cuffs and sleeves, as well as tablecloths and curtains.

The weight of this iron is approx 3 pounds. Automatically turns itself off between 60sec to and 10 minutes depending on the position of the soleplate.

You can use it as a dry iron. Set the dial to HIGH for heavier and everyday fabrics, LOW for more delicate fabrics and quick, easy touch-ups or choose DRY for easy ironing when no steam is needed.
