Rowenta IS6300 Review
This Rowenta IS6300 review evaluates the pros and cons of the Master Valet line of garment steamers. With the introduction of the IS6300 in the United States, Rowenta celebrated its first full size steamer with vertical support, making it possible to use just one hand to steam a garment. This is unlike some other steamers, where one hand holds the garment while the other guides and maneuvers the attached hose to control the direction of the steam.
This steamer is exceptional in every category and offers features that make removing wrinkles from clothing including an integrated vertical screen to use as a board (so there’s no need to lay garments flat to steam). The unit is also self-contained, allowing us to easily roll it anywhere and start steaming in seconds . With the vertical support, it’s simple to sanitize and remove odors from practically anything including clothing, furniture, vehicles, baby bedding, dog beds and of course clothing and delicate garments, without laying items on a flat surface.
Rowenta IS6300 Design
The Rowenta IS6300 features modern, functional design with a wide steam head and a foot controlled pedal with a super easy to use on/off indicator switch with light and provides automatic shut off when the unit runs out of water. The adjustable height telescopic pole, collapses completely for storage. The water levels can be checked through the transparent water tank. The Rowenta IS6300 tank holds 81 ounces of water and during our test provided 65 minutes of continuous steam.
The IS6300 handles any type of clothing or furnishings with ease and when it’s time to pack up and move to another room the Rowenta IS6300 actually rolls like a backpack on wheels. The streamlined ergonomic design doesn’t place any unnecessary weight on the hands or wrists and the space saving, pull-down, vertical ironing surface makes it super easy to get quality results. Our steamer heated up and produced steam in 42 seconds.
In addition to the exceptional performance of the Rowenta IS6300 the fabric insulated hose is a quality feature and the cool-to-touch design is reminiscent of the type of electrical cords that were initially invented to protected irons from fraying. The cord and the one hand operation mean that hands and skin never come in contact with the heat and steam, keeping you safe from burns.
The IS6300 includes a Quick Tips sheet for easy assembly and is already partially assembled. The IS6300 appears to be extremely well built with durable and sturdy construction and no unnecessary accessories or pieces to get in the way of the steaming heavy garments such as winter coats. The fabric screen rolls up when not in use, simply pull it down to fully extend. It slides up and down to support clothing.
In under 10 minutes our steamer was assembled and ready for use. Accessories include a large fabric brush, lint pad and crease attachment. The roll and press system, means just that, the fabric rolls down for a built-in vertical ironing surface. Once the fabric is rolled down, the unit is ready to press. It has two built-in garment clips and a large hanger. The IS6300 measures 19.5 x 12 x 16.8 inches and it weighs 16.2 pounds, works at 1550 watts, 9 foot cord and a 48 inch insulated, fabric wrapped hose.
Rowenta IS6300 Performance
During our Rowenta IS6300 review we observed one of the best steamers we have tested to date. It provides superior wrinkle removal, is efficient and is a very good price for all that it does. The Rowenta IS6300 can steam extremely wrinkled articles of clothing quickly, typically in under three minutes. Unlike some of the other full-size steamers that we have testes the Rowenta’s integrated ironing screen and hanging area supports the weights of various types of clothing without feeling delicate or like it was going to topple over. The steamer is easy to assemble, use and really takes very little effort to produce professional results. The IS6300 can also be operated on regular tap water without damaging the unit which provides long-term savings over some lesser expensive models over the long term.
There were two slightly negative items we found during testing. One is that the clips that are used to hang pants and skirts are hard to open because of the roller and the built-in hanger which makes the clips awkwardly in the way when using the hanger for dresses and shirts. The clips are built in and therefore not removable. Secondly, clothing was sometimes slightly damp after steaming for some heavily wrinkled garments so you may need to leave those hanging for a few minutes before wearing to get the best results.
It really doesn’t get better than the Rowenta IS6300, this powerful steamer has features and performance of more expensive steamers like high steam output, easy maneuverability and simple storage.
