The DW6080 is mostly known for its energy saving specification. It saves up to 25% on power consumption on conventional irons used nowadays. This makes it stand out of the line in comparison to other irons.
The consumers of this product are also complaining the rotary trigger present on the top of the handle, being switched easily with slight slip of hand. This may be because of the improper placement of the trigger or cause of the over smoothness of the trigger that makes it slip easily. Also, another negativity of the iron can be counted as the small water holding capacity of the tank attached to the iron. This means frequent refills, as frequent as 2 to 3 shirts,
and then you have to go for the refill again.
Also, there is a temperature control just above the water tank. This makes users very comfortable while ironing different fabric cloths. As, they can increase or decrease the temperature to fit for their use.
Overall, the iron has some cons such as its pricing , low capacity water tank and also the short chord , but its power saving feature dominates over all these cons.
