Rowenta DG8960 Silence Steam Generator Iron

Product information

Ironing is now truly simple and quiet with the Rowenta DG8960 Silence steam generator.

With steam generators a powerful steam station is essential but with it comes a lot of noise. Rowenta have developed silent steam technology which reduces noise in the steam station so that you can now iron in peace and quiet without disturbing yourself and others.

6 bars of steam pressure with steam output of up to 120g/min produces fast ironing results. A precision shot of steam of 260 g/min, concentrates the steam at the tip of the soleplate to target the most stubborn creases. The Microsteam 400 Profile Laser soleplate has been redesigned for perfect steam distribution over its whole surface, thanks to its 400 micro-holes for smooth movement in all directions with its profiled edges.

Key Benefits:

  • Vertical Steam
  • 2 minutes heat up time

  • Silence technology

Q & As

Rowenta DG8960 Silence Steam Generator Iron 3.7 5 3 3
my best iron ever I can't understand how the other reviewer has only gave this product one star - this iron is the best one i've ever owned, and i've had Tefal, Philips and Polti steam generators. It is well built and feels solid. It is quieter than my others, although not completely silent. It has ample steam which is constant when you press the button, it doesn't die off like some steam generators do. Nothing has marked or stuck to the soleplate either, unlike my supposedly non stick Tefal ones did. The whole unit is quite heavy but for me that just adds to the quality of the product - the iron itself doesn't feel too heavy. The water tank is removable and can be a bit stiff at first to take off but it gets easier as you get used to it. I would definitely recommend this iron. It is expensive, but in this case I think you get what you pay for. 02 October 2014
Amazing, Fantastic, Changed my life Firstly I don't normally write reviews but was soooo taken with this product felt I had to write and disagree with the other reviewer. This is the best iron I have ever used, it's easy to use, good quality, and I've just ironed 7 double/king-size sets of bed linen in half the time it normally takes. It's definitely worth the extra cost and would highly recommend . 01 October 2014
Not great This is Good Housekeeping's highest rated iron, but I don't know why. It is supposed to have a detachable water tank, but I struggled to detach it. Don't know if I had a faulty one or if they're all like that. You have to keep your finger on the steam button all the time to get any steam out of it - unlike Philips steam generator irons, where you can just double click the steam button to get continuous steam. It got some creases out but not all. Think the Philips irons are better. 12 September 2014
