Rowenta IS6200 review

Rowenta IS6200

The dimensions of the IS2600 are 15.8 x 12.8 x 16.8 inches and the machine (not when filled with water) weighs 14.45 pounds. The weight isn’t really an issue because the base of the steamer is fitted with a tilt and roll system so you don’t have to carry it. The telescopic pole is adjustable but bears in mind that the hanger is built in so you will need to allow for this in your storage area. It is quite an attractive black and blue model.

Rowenta IS6300

This product is slightly larger at 419.5 x 12 x 16.9 inches and weighing 16.2 pounds. Again, the tilt and roll system means you won’t need to carry it around, just wheel it along like a suitcase. Similarly to the IS6200, the telescopic pole is adjustable and the hanger is also built in. This machine is brown.

The winner is – The IS6200

Rowenta IS6200 vs IS6300: The Water Tank

Rowenta IS6300 water tank

Most clothes steamers will have about 50oz removable water tank so you can simply put it under the tap to fill it up. Something to consider when looking at the water tank, the more water you have in the steamer, the longer you will be able to use.

 

IS6200

The 81oz water tank is transparent, allowing you to see when the amount is getting low. You can remove it if this is your preferred method to refill it. With such a large tank you are able to continuously steam for up to 1 hour.

IS6300

In this case, there is no difference in the water tank or the amount of time you can steam for.

The winner is – Tie

Extra heads that come with a clothes steamer makes you feel like you are getting more value for money, it means your steamer has more than just one function and can be adapted to other fabrics or even tasks.

IS6200

The box will include a fabric brush and a lint brush. What we love is that you will also get a crease tool attachment. One of the only downsides to using a streamer rather than an iron is that you can’t intentionally add creases. The IS6200 solves this problem.

The box will contain a fabric brush and a lint brush too. There is also a steam bonnet that you can use on delicate clothes.
