For exceptional control over everyday ironing, reach for the Rowenta, Focus, DW5184, 1700-Watt Steam Iron. The powerful, German-made iron comes equipped with a Microsteam400 stainless-steel soleplate with 400 microholes for extra-impressive steam distribution. The iron’s burst-of-steam function makes stubborn wrinkles melt away quickly, while its variable steam lever allows for easy steam-output adjustments. Other highlights include vertical steam for drapes and hanging garments, three-way auto shutoff (8 minutes if left vertical and after 30 seconds if left horizontal or tipped over), and a self-cleaning system to ensure long-lasting, high-quality performance. An upgraded version of the Focus DZ5164, the DW5184 provides an additional 50 microholes (400 vs. 350) in its soleplate and a high-precision metal tip that reaches more easily and productively into tight spots, like around buttons and over collars, seams, and narrow edges. The Rowenta Focus DW5184 also showcases an updated design with contemporary contours for an ultra-sleek new look. Patent US n°7,305,780

Leave the iron to cool down before putting it away and follow these 4 tips:
Empty out the water remaining in the tank, set the thermostat to minimum, switch off the steam control and stand it upright or put it back in its base (depending on the model).

• The Durillium soleplate:
Regularly clean the soleplate with a damp, non metallic washing up pad. For easier, non-corrosive cleaning of your iron's soleplate, use a damp sponge on the soleplate while it is still warm.
If cleaning dirt off is an issue, use the stick which is made specifically for cleaning the Durillium soleplates.
• The stainless soleplate:
Clean the soleplate of your iron when it is cool with a damp cloth or a non-abrasive sponge.
• The autoclean soleplate:
It is recommended that you use a soft damp cloth on the warm soleplate, in order not to damage the surface.
Warning: The use of iron cleaner will cause damage to your soleplate's autoclean coating.

If your iron has an anti-calc system, you should clean the anti-calc valve once a month.
To do this, unplug the iron and leave it to cool for 30-45 minutes.
Empty the water and remove the valve, holding it by the top.
Put the valve into a glass of lemon juice (or white vinegar) for 4 hours.
Then rinse it with plenty of water and put it back inside the iron.
Be careful! Do not hold the valve at the edges.

Gently shake your iron to reactivate it, the lights should start to flash and then the iron should start to heat up.

The electronic system cuts off the power supply and the auto-stop light flashes if the iron is not moved for more than 8 minutes (on its rest or base) or is left flat for more than 30 seconds.
To turn the iron back on, shake it gently until the light goes out.
