6 Reasons For for Choosing the Russell Hobbs 24820

Steam Boost Function

The Russell Hobbs 24820 has a steam boost function, and so do the Conair DPP143 and the Philips GC142440, whereas the Breville VIN369 and the Swan SI3070N do not. More ...

A steam boost function allows the iron to temporarily dispense a more powerful blast of steam at the press of a button.

Steam boost serves to better iron extremely stubborn creases.

Vertical Steam Function

The Russell Hobbs 24820 has a vertical steam function, and so does the Breville VIN369, however the Conair DPP143, the Philips GC142440 and the Swan SI3070N do not. More ...

'Vertical Steam' denotes whether the iron has the capacity to produce a sustained burst of steam from the top of the device.

This is very helpful for hanging fabrics - such as giving hung-up shirts a quick steam to help get the creases out.

Variable Steam Function

The Russell Hobbs 24820 supports variable steam function, and so do the Breville VIN369 and the Philips GC142440, however the Conair DPP143 and the Swan SI3070N do not. More ...

'Variable Steam Function' indicates whether the iron has the capability of altering the power of the steam being released.

Some fabrics require more powerful steam blasts to best tame very stubborn creases.

Better Kagoo Score

The Russell Hobbs 24820 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, but the Breville VIN369 scored 86, the Conair DPP143 scored 87, the Philips GC142440 scored 84 and the Swan SI3070N scored 84.

Newer by 14 Months

The Russell Hobbs 24820 was released three years ago, but the Breville VIN369 was released five years ago, the Conair DPP143 was released nine years ago, the Philips GC142440 was released four years ago and the Swan SI3070N was released five years ago

Better User Reviews

Based on 4 reviews, the Russell Hobbs 24820 has an average user review score of 95%, but the Breville VIN369 has an average rating of 88% (based on 20 reviews), the Conair DPP143 has an average rating of 81% (based on 61 reviews), the Philips GC142440 has an average rating of 86% (based on 7 reviews) and the Swan SI3070N has an average rating of 86% (based on 306 reviews).

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Russell Hobbs 24820

10% Less Steam Generating Capacity

The Russell Hobbs 24820 has a steam generating capacity of 90. That's 60g/min more than the Breville VIN369 (30g/min), 40g/min more than the Conair DPP143 (50g/min), 75g/min more than the Philips GC142440 (15g/min) and 10g/min less than the Swan SI3070N (100g/min). More ...

'Steam Generating Capacit' indicates how much steam the iron is capable of generating, measured in grams per minute (g/min).

A larger steam flow means that the iron is capable of more powerful steam blasts for longer, meaning the iron is more efficient at tackling stubborn creases and difficult fabrics.

Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Russell Hobbs 24820 is a 0.24 water tank capacity iron. That's 0.14L bigger than the Breville VIN369, the Philips GC142440 and the Swan SI3070N (0.1L). More ...

'Capacity' indicates how much water the iron can hold at a single time.

A bigger tank capacity means the iron can be used longer before it needs to be refilled with water.

Not Cordless

The Russell Hobbs 24820 is not cordless (As do the the Philips GC142440 and the Swan SI3070N), but the Breville VIN369 and the Conair DPP143 are. More ...

'Cordless' denotes whether the iron has a power cord or not.

Cordless irons are far easier to use, and won't get twisted up and tangled. However they only have a limited life before they need to be recharged, whereas traditional corded irons can go on as long as you need.

Not As Many Stockists

The Russell Hobbs 24820 is only stocked by 3 stores, however the Conair DPP143 is stocked by 4 stores. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this iron.
$121 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

Over five years the Russell Hobbs 24820 costs $181 to run which is $15 more than the Breville VIN369, $121 more than the Conair DPP143, $76 more than the Philips GC142440 and $113 more than the Swan SI3070N. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Russell Hobbs irons have an average rating of only 90.7%, however Philips has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the 24820 in the US is $19.72 and in total we found 3 prices for it.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Breville VIN369

Bigger Water Tank Capacity

The Breville VIN369 is a 0.25 water tank capacity iron. That's 0.15L bigger than the Philips GC142440, the Russell Hobbs 24820 and the Swan SI3070N (0.1L). More ...

'Capacity' indicates how much water the iron can hold at a single time.

A bigger tank capacity means the iron can be used longer before it needs to be refilled with water.

Anti-Drip Function

The Breville VIN369 has an anti-drip function, however the Conair DPP143, the Philips GC142440, the Russell Hobbs 24820 and the Swan SI3070N do not have this feature. More ...

An anti-drip system can help stop you making a mess while ironing.

Spray Function

Spraying water on fabric serves to moisten it, making it easier to iron.

Self-Cleaning

The Breville VIN369 is a self-cleaning iron (as is the Philips GC142440), however the Conair DPP143, the Russell Hobbs 24820 and the Swan SI3070N are not. More ...

'Self-Cleaning' indicates whether the iron has a special cycle to clean itself after a set amount of time (e.g - 2 weeks). It works by flushing through the iron and soleplate with very hot water, removing any impurities that have built up.

A self-cleaning iron can help prolong the life of the appliance, and keep it in peak condition for longer.

Vertical Steam Function

The Breville VIN369 has a vertical steam function, and so does the Russell Hobbs 24820, but the Conair DPP143, the Philips GC142440 and the Swan SI3070N do not. More ...

'Vertical Steam' denotes whether the iron has the capacity to produce a sustained burst of steam from the top of the device.

This is very helpful for hanging fabrics - such as giving hung-up shirts a quick steam to help get the creases out.

The Breville VIN369 supports variable steam function, and so do the Philips GC142440 and the Russell Hobbs 24820, but the Conair DPP143 and the Swan SI3070N do not. More ...

'Variable Steam Function' indicates whether the iron has the capability of altering the power of the steam being released.

Some fabrics require more powerful steam blasts to best tame very stubborn creases.

2 Reasons For for Choosing the Swan SI3070N

More Steam Generating Capacity

Swan SI3070N is 100 steam capacity. That's 70g/min more than the Breville VIN369 (30g/min), 50g/min more than the Conair DPP143 (50g/min), 85g/min more than the Philips GC142440 (15g/min) and 10g/min more than the Russell Hobbs 24820 (90g/min). More ...

'Steam Generating Capacit' indicates how much steam the iron is capable of generating, measured in grams per minute (g/min).

A larger steam flow means that the iron is capable of more powerful steam blasts for longer, meaning the iron is more efficient at tackling stubborn creases and difficult fabrics.

Cheaper by $3

The Swan SI3070N is $3.07 cheaper than the Breville VIN369 and $4.20 cheaper than the Philips GC142440.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Swan SI3070N

65% Lighter

The Swan SI3070N is a 500 iron. That's 280g lighter than the Philips GC142440 (780g) and 910g lighter than the Russell Hobbs 24820 (1.4kg). More ...

'Weight' denotes how heavy the iron is, measured in grams (g).

A heavier iron can be an advantage as it makes it easier to press the clothes.

60% Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Swan SI3070N is a 0.1 water tank capacity iron. That's 0.14L smaller than the Breville VIN369, the Philips GC142440 and the Russell Hobbs 24820 (0.24L). More ...

'Capacity' indicates how much water the iron can hold at a single time.

A bigger tank capacity means the iron can be used longer before it needs to be refilled with water.

Not Cordless

The Swan SI3070N is not cordless (As do the the Philips GC142440 and the Russell Hobbs 24820), whereas the Breville VIN369 and the Conair DPP143 are. More ...

'Cordless' denotes whether the iron has a power cord or not.

Cordless irons are far easier to use, and won't get twisted up and tangled. However they only have a limited life before they need to be recharged, whereas traditional corded irons can go on as long as you need.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Swan SI3070N has received a Kagoo Score of 84, whereas the Breville VIN369 scored 86, the Conair DPP143 scored 87 and the Russell Hobbs 24820 scored 88.

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Philips GC142440

Extra Large Water Inlet

The Philips GC142440 has an extra large water inlet, whereas the Breville VIN369, the Conair DPP143, the Russell Hobbs 24820 and the Swan SI3070N do not have this feature. More ...

'Extra-Large Inlet' indicates whether the iron has a very large hole for pouring water into the tank or not.

A large inlet hole makes it less likely you'll spill water when refilling the iron.

Spray Function

The Philips GC142440 has an spray function (as does the Breville VIN369), whereas the Conair DPP143, the Russell Hobbs 24820 and the Swan SI3070N do not have this feature. More ...

'Spray Function' indicates whether the iron has the ability to spray out a fine mist of water.

Spraying water on fabric serves to moisten it, making it easier to iron.

Steam Boost Function

The Philips GC142440 has a steam boost function (as do the Conair DPP143 and the Russell Hobbs 24820), however the Breville VIN369 and the Swan SI3070N do not have this feature. More ...

A steam boost function allows the iron to temporarily dispense a more powerful blast of steam at the press of a button.

Steam boost serves to better iron extremely stubborn creases.

Self-Cleaning

The Philips GC142440 is self-cleaning, and so is the Breville VIN369, however the Conair DPP143, the Russell Hobbs 24820 and the Swan SI3070N are not. More ...

'Self-Cleaning' indicates whether the iron has a special cycle to clean itself after a set amount of time (e.g - 2 weeks). It works by flushing through the iron and soleplate with very hot water, removing any impurities that have built up.

A self-cleaning iron can help prolong the life of the appliance, and keep it in peak condition for longer.

Anti-Scale System

The Philips GC142440 features anti-scale system, but the Breville VIN369, the Conair DPP143, the Russell Hobbs 24820 and the Swan SI3070N do not. More ...

'Anti-Scale System' denotes whether the iron has a special function to reduce limescale, which builds up inside your iron after continued use.

An anti-calc system helps prolong the life of your iron and keep it at peak efficiency for longer.

Automatic Anti-Calc System

The Philips GC142440 has an automatic anti-calc system, however the Breville VIN369, the Conair DPP143, the Russell Hobbs 24820 and the Swan SI3070N do not. More ...

'Auto Anti-Calc System' denotes whether the iron has a special function to reduce limescale, which builds up inside your iron after continued use.

An anti-calc system helps prolong the life of your iron and keep it at peak efficiency for longer.

Variable Steam Function

The Philips GC142440 supports variable steam function (as do the Breville VIN369 and the Russell Hobbs 24820), but the Conair DPP143 and the Swan SI3070N do not support this feature. More ...

'Variable Steam Function' indicates whether the iron has the capability of altering the power of the steam being released.

Some fabrics require more powerful steam blasts to best tame very stubborn creases.

Better Brand

Philips irons have an average rating of 95%, but Breville only has an average rating of 78.1%, Conair only has an average rating of 76.4%, Russell Hobbs only has an average rating of 90.7% and Swan only has an average rating of 75.6%.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Philips GC142440

Hugely Less Steam Generating Capacity

Philips GC142440 is only 15 steam capacity, but the Breville VIN369 is a 30g/min steam capacity iron (15g/min more), the Conair DPP143 is a 50g/min steam capacity iron (35g/min more), the Russell Hobbs 24820 is a 90g/min steam capacity iron (75g/min more) and the Swan SI3070N is a 100g/min steam capacity iron (85g/min more). More ...

'Steam Generating Capacit' indicates how much steam the iron is capable of generating, measured in grams per minute (g/min).

A larger steam flow means that the iron is capable of more powerful steam blasts for longer, meaning the iron is more efficient at tackling stubborn creases and difficult fabrics.

630g Lighter

The Philips GC142440 has a weight of 780, whereas the Russell Hobbs 24820 is a 1.4kg iron (630g heavier) and the Swan SI3070N is a 500g iron (280g lighter). More ...

'Weight' denotes how heavy the iron is, measured in grams (g).

A heavier iron can be an advantage as it makes it easier to press the clothes.

0.09L Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Philips GC142440 has a water tank capacity of 0.16, however the Breville VIN369, the Russell Hobbs 24820 and the Swan SI3070N are all 0.1L water tank capacity irons (0.06L smaller). More ...

'Capacity' indicates how much water the iron can hold at a single time.

A bigger tank capacity means the iron can be used longer before it needs to be refilled with water.

Not Cordless

The Philips GC142440 is not cordless (As do the the Russell Hobbs 24820 and the Swan SI3070N), whereas the Breville VIN369 and the Conair DPP143 are. More ...

'Cordless' denotes whether the iron has a power cord or not.

Cordless irons are far easier to use, and won't get twisted up and tangled. However they only have a limited life before they need to be recharged, whereas traditional corded irons can go on as long as you need.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Philips GC142440 has received a Kagoo Score of 84, whereas the Breville VIN369 scored 86, the Conair DPP143 scored 87 and the Russell Hobbs 24820 scored 88.

$4 More Expensive

The Philips GC142440 is more expensive than the Swan SI3070N by $4.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 retailer sell the Philips GC142440, but 2 sellers sell the Breville VIN369, 4 sellers sell the Conair DPP143 and 3 stores sell the Russell Hobbs 24820. More ...

The smaller the number of stores that stock this iron, the lower the competition amongst stores to keep prices low.
Over One Year Older

The Philips GC142440 is older than the Russell Hobbs 24820 by 14 months.

More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 75%

Over five years the Philips GC142440 costs $106 to run which is $45 more than the Conair DPP143 and $38 more than the Swan SI3070N. Show assumptions.
