REVIEW Conair EZ Press Hand-Held Steam Iron, White, One Size (DPP143)

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Conair DPP143

Steam Boost Function

The Conair DPP143 has a steam boost function, and so does the Philips GC142440, however the Breville VIN310, the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Conair DPP143 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, whereas the Breville VIN310 scored 85, the Philips GC142440 scored 84, the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron scored 86 and the Swan SI3070N scored 84.

Cheaper by $7

The Conair DPP143 is $6.97 cheaper than the Philips GC142440.

More Shops Are Selling It

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

Cheaper to Run by $140 Over Five Years

Over five years the Conair DPP143 is $137 cheaper to run than the Breville VIN310, $51 cheaper to run than the Philips GC142440, $3 cheaper to run than the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron and $9 cheaper to run than the Swan SI3070N. More ...

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Conair DPP143 was better in terms of size. Several people thought that it was a good size, was a big size and was compact.

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Conair DPP143

Less Steam Generating Capacity

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

Older by Over Five Years

The Conair DPP143 is five years older than the Breville VIN310, five years older than the Philips GC142440, four years older than the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron and four years older than the Swan SI3070N.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Breville VIN310

Bigger Water Tank Capacity

The Breville VIN310 is a 0.25L water tank capacity iron. That's 0.15L bigger than 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.

Vertical Steam Function

The Breville VIN310 has a vertical steam function, but the Conair DPP143, the Philips GC142440, the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron 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.

Anti-Scale System

The Breville VIN310 features anti-scale system (as does the Philips GC142440), but the Conair DPP143, the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron and the Swan SI3070N do not feature this benefit. 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.

Moderately Better User Reviews

Based on 7 user reviews, the Breville VIN310 has an average review score of 89%, whereas 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).

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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Breville VIN310 has received a Kagoo Score of 85, whereas the Conair DPP143 scored 88 and the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron scored 86.

Fewer Sellers

The Breville VIN310 is only stocked by 1 store, but the Conair DPP143 is stocked by 5 stores and the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron is stocked by 3 shops. More ...

$137 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

The Breville VIN310 costs $205 to run which is $137 more than the Conair DPP143, $85 more than the Philips GC142440, $134 more than the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron and $128 more than the Swan SI3070N over five years. Show assumptions.

1 Reason For for Choosing the Swan SI3070N

48% More Steam Generating Capacity

The Swan SI3070N has a steam generating capacity of 100g/min. That's 60g/min more than the Breville VIN310 (40g/min), 50g/min more than the Conair DPP143 (50g/min), 85g/min more than the Philips GC142440 (15g/min) and 90g/min more than the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron (10g/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.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Swan SI3070N

Lighter

The Swan SI3070N is a 500g iron. That's 280g lighter than the Philips GC142440 (780g). 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.

Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Swan SI3070N is a 0.1L water tank capacity iron. That's 0.06L smaller than the Breville VIN310 and the Philips GC142440 (0.16L). More ...

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

Not Cordless

'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, but the Breville VIN310 scored 85, the Conair DPP143 scored 88 and the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron scored 86.

Not As Many Stockists

The Swan SI3070N is only stocked by 1 store, however the Conair DPP143 is stocked by 5 stores and the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron is stocked by 3 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.

$9 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

Over five years the running costs of the Swan SI3070N are $77 which is $9 more than the Conair DPP143 and $6 more than the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron. Show assumptions.

User Review Rating is a Little Worse

The Swan SI3070N has an average user score of 86%, but the Breville VIN310 has an average user rating of 89% (based on 7 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is a Little Worse

The Swan SI3070N has an average overall score of 86%, but the Breville VIN310 has an average overall rating of 89% (based on 7 reviews).

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Philips GC142440

'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.

Extra Large Water Inlet

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, and so does the Breville VIN310, however the Conair DPP143, the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron and the Swan SI3070N do not. More ...

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Philips GC142440

85g/min Less Steam Generating Capacity

The Philips GC142440 has a steam generating capacity of 15g/min, however the Breville VIN310 is a 40g/min steam capacity iron (25g/min more), the Conair DPP143 is a 50g/min steam capacity iron (35g/min more), the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron is a 10g/min steam capacity iron (5g/min less) 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.

A Lot Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Philips GC142440 has a water tank capacity of 0.16L, whereas the Breville VIN310 and the Swan SI3070N are both 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 does the the Swan SI3070N), but the Breville VIN310, the Conair DPP143 and the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron 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, but the Breville VIN310 scored 85, the Conair DPP143 scored 88 and the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron scored 86.

$7 More Expensive

The Philips GC142440 is more expensive than the Breville VIN310 by $4, more expensive than the Conair DPP143 by $7, more expensive than the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron by $6 and more expensive than the Swan SI3070N by $5.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 seller sell the Philips GC142440, however 5 stores sell the Conair DPP143 and 3 stores sell the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the chances of this iron remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
75% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years

The Philips GC142440 costs $120 to run which is $51 more than the Conair DPP143, $49 more than the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron and $43 more than the Swan SI3070N over five years. Show assumptions.
