Black & Decker D2030 Auto-Off Digital Advantage Iron Review

Updated on August 1, 2015

Black & Decker D2030 - An Affordable Iron

The Black & Decker D2030 Digital Advantage Iron is one of those steam irons that is in the right price range for most people. It is not too cheap like those $20 irons that wouldn't do a good job of getting rid of the wrinkles on your clothes. Neither is it too expensive that it comes with more features than you need.

In that sense, it is just nice for a basic iron for the home, suitable for ironing the clothes of a small to medium-sized family. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles that come with a $100 iron but it will do for simple ironing needs.

Features Of The Black & Decker D2030 Auto-Off Digital Advantage Iron

The Black & Decker D2030 is a 1500-watt iron with an auto-off feature. Some people do prefer to have an iron that shuts off automatically because it is easy to forget to switch it off when you are done and busy hanging and putting back your clothes into the closet. An alert tone is audible when it shuts off.

It also has a LCD monitor in which it displays temperature and fabric settings. There is the steam burst feature with steam control and vertical steaming option. The button for the surge of steam is located right at the top near the LCD display which is within easy reach of your thumb. A dial is at the base of the handle for you to adjust temperature settings and other controls. The soleplate is stainless steel and its handle is rubberized for better grip.

Current Deals On Steam Irons

Apart from the Black & Decker D2030 Digital Advantage Iron, there are many other models out there in the similar price range. Below are a few of these irons which do have good ratings at the time of writing.

Is The Black & Decker Digital Advantage Iron Worth A Buy?

The Black & Decker D2030 Auto-Off Digital Advantage Iron is a very popular iron among buyers. For the price, most people are happy with its performance. It heats up fast and glides smoothly when you are ironing. This makes ironing seems less of a chore when you have a big pile of clothes to go through.

The iron also gives off an adequate amount of steam. Even wrinkles on tough denims can be smoothed out easily with the generous amount of steam it produces. The different fabric settings also ensures that you can press different materials without worrying that they will stick to the soleplate of the iron.

The drawback of the Black & Decker D2030 is that it is a little big in size and with that, a little bit on the heavy side. So, for those who prefer a lightweight iron, this model may be cumbersome. Size and weight is a matter of personal preference but a heavier iron means more pressure is applied when you are ironing which gives a better result.

All in all, this Black & Decker iron is worth the money you pay for. It does not have continuous steaming and all the bells and whistles of the top range irons but it does the job if you are looking for a simple iron for the home.
