7 Reasons For for Choosing the Russell Hobbs 24820

Steam Boost Function

The Russell Hobbs 24820 has a steam boost function (as does the Morphy Richards Breeze), whereas 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 do the Breville VIN369 and the Morphy Richards Breeze), however 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.

50% Bigger Maximum Continuous Flow

The Russell Hobbs 24820 is a 90g/min max continuous flow iron. That's 89g/min bigger than the Morphy Richards Breeze (1g/min). More ...

'Maximum Continuous Flow' 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.

Variable Steam Function

The Russell Hobbs 24820 supports variable steam function (as do the Breville VIN369 and the Morphy Richards Breeze), however 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Russell Hobbs 24820 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, but the Breville VIN369 scored 85, the Morphy Richards Breeze scored 86, the Philips GC16002 scored 87 and the Rowenta DW5080 scored 87.

One Month Newer

The Russell Hobbs 24820 was released 23 months ago, but the Breville VIN369 was released four years ago, the Morphy Richards Breeze was released four years ago, the Philips GC16002 was released seven years ago and the Rowenta DW5080 was released two years ago

User Reviews Are Slightly Better

The average user review score of the Russell Hobbs 24820 is 95% based on 4 reviews, but the average rating of the Breville VIN369 is 88% (based on 20 reviews), the average rating of the Morphy Richards Breeze is 94% (based on 10 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).

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Russell Hobbs 24820

130g/min Less Steam Generating Capacity

The Russell Hobbs 24820 has a steam generating capacity of 90g/min, however the Breville VIN369 is a 30g/min steam capacity iron (60g/min less), the Morphy Richards Breeze is a 45g/min steam capacity iron (45g/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.

A Lot Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Russell Hobbs 24820 has a water tank capacity of 0.24L, whereas the Breville VIN369 and the Morphy Richards Breeze are both 0.35L water tank capacity irons (0.11L 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), but the Breville VIN369, the Morphy Richards Breeze 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.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 4 sellers sells the Russell Hobbs 24820, however 8 stores sell the Rowenta DW5080. 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.
586% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years

Over five years the Russell Hobbs 24820 costs $195 to run which is $16 more than the Breville VIN369, $167 more than the Philips GC16002 and $57 more than the Rowenta DW5080. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Russell Hobbs irons have an average rating of only 91.7%, however Philips has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the 24820 in the US is $20.29 and in total we found 4 prices for it.

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Philips GC16002

Anti-Drip Function

The Philips GC16002 has an anti-drip function, and so do the Breville VIN369 and the Morphy Richards Breeze, whereas the Rowenta DW5080 and the Russell Hobbs 24820 do not. More ...

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

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Philips GC16002

90g/min Less Steam Generating Capacity

The Philips GC16002 has a steam generating capacity of 130g/min, however the Breville VIN369 is a 30g/min steam capacity iron (100g/min less), the Morphy Richards Breeze is a 45g/min steam capacity iron (85g/min less), the Rowenta DW5080 is a 220g/min steam capacity iron (90g/min more) and the Russell Hobbs 24820 is a 90g/min steam capacity iron (40g/min less). 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.
