5 Reasons For for Choosing the Conair DPP143

Steam Boost Function

The Conair DPP143 has a steam boost function, and so does the Braun TexStyle 7, whereas the Philips GC16002, 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, but the Braun TexStyle 7 scored 87, the Philips GC16002 scored 87, the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron scored 84 and the Swan SI3070N scored 84.

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.

$130 Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

Over five years the Conair DPP143 is $128 cheaper to run than the Braun TexStyle 7, $32 cheaper to run than the Philips GC16002, $2 cheaper to run than the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron and $8 cheaper to run than the Swan SI3070N. More ...

A Better Size

'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.

Older by Over Seven Years

The Conair DPP143 is seven years older than the Braun TexStyle 7, 19 months older than the Philips GC16002, four years older than the Russell Hobbs Dual Voltage Travel Iron and four years older than the Swan SI3070N.

User Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The Conair DPP143 has an average user score of 81%, but the Braun TexStyle 7 has an average user rating of 89% (based on 437 reviews), the Philips GC16002 has an average user rating of 91% (based on 244 reviews) and the Swan SI3070N has an average user rating of 86% (based on 306 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The Conair DPP143 has an average overall score of 81%, but the Braun TexStyle 7 has an average overall rating of 89% (based on 439 reviews), the Philips GC16002 has an average overall rating of 91% (based on 244 reviews) and the Swan SI3070N has an average overall rating of 86% (based on 306 reviews).
