Our review analysis indicates that Conair DPP143 has great user reviews with 80% of buyers recommending this iron to others.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Conair DPP143

Steam Boost Function

The Conair DPP143 has a steam boost function (as does the Russell Hobbs 24820), however the Breville VIN369, the Philips GC16002 and the Rowenta DW5080 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Conair DPP143 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, whereas the Philips GC16002 scored 87, the Rowenta DW5080 scored 84 and the Russell Hobbs 24820 scored 86.

$11 Cheaper

The Conair DPP143 is $11.26 cheaper than the Philips GC16002 and $39 cheaper than the Rowenta DW5080.

More Shops Are Selling It

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this iron and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

Cheaper to Run by $120 Over Five Years

The Conair DPP143 is $108 cheaper to run than the Breville VIN369, $31 cheaper to run than the Philips GC16002, $69 cheaper to run than the Rowenta DW5080 and $123 cheaper to run than the Russell Hobbs 24820 over five years. More ...

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Conair DPP143

170g/min Less Steam Generating Capacity

Conair DPP143 is only 50 steam capacity, but the Breville VIN369 is a 30g/min steam capacity iron (20g/min less), the Philips GC16002 is a 130g/min steam capacity iron (80g/min more), the Rowenta DW5080 is a 220g/min steam capacity iron (170g/min more) and the Russell Hobbs 24820 is a 90g/min steam capacity iron (40g/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.

Over Six Years Older

The Conair DPP143 is older than the Breville VIN369 by four years, older than the Philips GC16002 by 19 months, older than the Rowenta DW5080 by six years and older than the Russell Hobbs 24820 by six years.

Appreciably Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Conair DPP143 is 81%, whereas the average user rating of the Breville VIN369 is 88% (based on 20 reviews), the Philips GC16002 is 91% (based on 244 reviews) and the Russell Hobbs 24820 is 95% (based on 4 reviews).

Appreciably Lower Overall Review Score

The average overall rating of the Conair DPP143 is 81%, whereas the average overall rating of the Breville VIN369 is 88% (based on 20 reviews), the Philips GC16002 is 91% (based on 244 reviews), the Rowenta DW5080 is 82% (based on 5 reviews) and the Russell Hobbs 24820 is 93% (based on 4 reviews).

Worse Brand

Conair irons have an average rating of only 76.8%, but Breville has an average rating of 80.3%, Philips has an average rating of 95%, Rowenta has an average rating of 81.3% and Russell Hobbs has an average rating of 89.7%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the DPP143 in the US is $20.00 and in total we found 5 prices for it.

Owners report that Russell Hobbs 24820 has superb user reviews with an average user rating of 95%.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Russell Hobbs 24820

Steam Boost Function

The Russell Hobbs 24820 has a steam boost function (as does the Conair DPP143), but the Breville VIN369, the Philips GC16002 and the Rowenta DW5080 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.

Vertical Steam Function

The Russell Hobbs 24820 has a vertical steam function (as does the Breville VIN369), whereas the Conair DPP143, the Philips GC16002 and the Rowenta DW5080 do not have this feature. 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 (as does the Breville VIN369), whereas the Conair DPP143, the Philips GC16002 and the Rowenta DW5080 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.

One Month Newer

The Russell Hobbs 24820 was released two years later than the Breville VIN369, released six years later than the Conair DPP143, released five years later than the Philips GC16002 and released one month later than the Rowenta DW5080

User Reviews Are Marginally Better

Based on 4 user reviews, the average review score of the Russell Hobbs 24820 is 95%, however the average rating of the Breville VIN369 is 88% (based on 20 reviews), the average rating of the Conair DPP143 is 81% (based on 61 reviews), the average rating of the Philips GC16002 is 91% (based on 244 reviews) and the average rating of the Rowenta DW5080 is 80% (based on 4 reviews).

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Russell Hobbs 24820

130g/min Less Steam Generating Capacity

The Russell Hobbs 24820 is a 90 steam capacity iron, whereas the Breville VIN369 is a 30g/min steam capacity iron (60g/min less), the Conair DPP143 is a 50g/min steam capacity iron (40g/min less), the Philips GC16002 is a 130g/min steam capacity iron (40g/min more) and the Rowenta DW5080 is a 220g/min steam capacity iron (130g/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.

Moderately Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Russell Hobbs 24820 has a water tank capacity of 0.24, but the Breville VIN369 is a 0.25L water tank capacity iron (0.01L bigger). 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 does the the Philips GC16002), however the Breville VIN369, the Conair DPP143 and the Rowenta DW5080 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 Russell Hobbs 24820 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, however the Breville VIN369 scored 88, the Conair DPP143 scored 88 and the Philips GC16002 scored 87.

Less Retailers

Only 2 sellers sells the Russell Hobbs 24820, whereas 5 stores sell the Conair DPP143 and 3 stores sell the Rowenta DW5080. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this iron and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
200% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years

The running costs of the Russell Hobbs 24820 are $184 which is $15 more than the Breville VIN369, $123 more than the Conair DPP143, $92 more than the Philips GC16002 and $54 more than the Rowenta DW5080 over five years. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Russell Hobbs irons have an average rating of only 89.7%, whereas Philips has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the 24820 in the US is $20.06 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.
