Owners report that Russell Hobbs 24820 has terrific 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, however the Breville VIN369, the Duronic Si2 Mini, the Philips GC16002 and the Rowenta DW5080 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, but the Duronic Si2 Mini, the Philips GC16002 and the Rowenta DW5080 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 does the Breville VIN369, but the Duronic Si2 Mini, the Philips GC16002 and the Rowenta DW5080 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, whereas the Breville VIN369 scored 86, the Duronic Si2 Mini scored 87 and the Philips GC16002 scored 87.

Moderately Better User Reviews

Based on 4 user reviews, the Russell Hobbs 24820 has an average review score of 95%, whereas the Breville VIN369 has an average rating of 88% (based on 20 reviews), the Duronic Si2 Mini has an average rating of 94% (based on 384 reviews), the Philips GC16002 has an average rating of 91% (based on 244 reviews) and the Rowenta DW5080 has an average rating of 80% (based on 4 reviews).

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Russell Hobbs 24820

60% Less Steam Generating Capacity

Russell Hobbs 24820 is only 90 steam capacity. That's 60g/min more than the Breville VIN369 (30g/min), 40g/min less than the Philips GC16002 (130g/min) and 130g/min less than the Rowenta DW5080 (220g/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 0.01L smaller than the Breville VIN369 (0.25L). 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), whereas the Breville VIN369, the Duronic Si2 Mini 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.

Fewer Sellers

The Russell Hobbs 24820 is only stocked by 4 sellers, but the Rowenta DW5080 is stocked by 5 shops. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
$165 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

The Russell Hobbs 24820 costs $195 to run which is $16 more than the Breville VIN369, $165 more than the Duronic Si2 Mini, $98 more than the Philips GC16002 and $57 more than the Rowenta DW5080 over five years. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Breville VIN369

Bigger Water Tank Capacity

The Breville VIN369 is a 0.25 water tank capacity iron. That's 0.01L bigger than 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.

Anti-Drip Function

The Breville VIN369 has an anti-drip function, but the Duronic Si2 Mini, the Philips GC16002, the Rowenta DW5080 and the Russell Hobbs 24820 do not have this feature. More ...

'Anti-Drip Function' denotes whether the iron has a special function to stop water from dripping from the iron after you've used the steam function.

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

Spray Function

The Breville VIN369 has an spray function, however the Duronic Si2 Mini, the Philips GC16002, the Rowenta DW5080 and the Russell Hobbs 24820 do not. 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.

Self-Cleaning

The Breville VIN369 is a self-cleaning iron, but the Duronic Si2 Mini, the Philips GC16002, the Rowenta DW5080 and the Russell Hobbs 24820 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, whereas the Duronic Si2 Mini, the Philips GC16002 and the Rowenta DW5080 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 Breville VIN369 supports variable steam function, and so does the Russell Hobbs 24820, whereas the Duronic Si2 Mini, the Philips GC16002 and the Rowenta DW5080 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.

Cheaper by $14

The Breville VIN369 costs $16.45 less than the Duronic Si2 Mini, costs $14.26 less than the Philips GC16002 and costs $22.98 less than the Rowenta DW5080.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Breville VIN369

87% Less Steam Generating Capacity

The Breville VIN369 is a 30 steam capacity iron. That's 100g/min less than the Philips GC16002 (130g/min), 190g/min less than the Rowenta DW5080 (220g/min) and 60g/min less 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Breville VIN369 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, however the Duronic Si2 Mini scored 87, the Philips GC16002 scored 87, the Rowenta DW5080 scored 88 and the Russell Hobbs 24820 scored 88.

Less Retailers

The Breville VIN369 is only stocked by 2 shops, whereas the Philips GC16002 is stocked by 3 shops, the Rowenta DW5080 is stocked by 5 shops and the Russell Hobbs 24820 is stocked by 4 retailers. More ...
