Bottom line

The Black & Decker Digital Advantage D2030 gets rave reviews from owners who say it does an excellent job of pressing their clothes, and they love that it can be used as a vertical steamer. It is a basic, easy-to-use steam iron with an automatic shutoff, a digital display for temperature and fabric settings, and burst-of-steam and spray mist settings. There are complaints of leakage and problems with the digital display, but they're few and far between.

Features

Lots of steam. The Black & Decker Digital Advantage D2030 produces a lot of steam, which makes it easier to iron away wrinkles, consumer reviewers say. The easy-to-read digital display audibly signals changes in temperature, and steam and iron settings. With the D2030's vertical steaming ability, you can tackle wrinkles without an ironing board, and owners say it does a great job of steaming wrinkles out of curtains. The iron offers burst-of-steam and spray mist functions, and has a stainless steel soleplate with an auto-clean feature

Ease of use

Seven temperature settings. The Black & Decker Digital Advantage D2030 weighs 3.2 pounds. Some users say it is heavy, but also note that its heft makes it easier to get wrinkles out. And the weight seems to be a matter of perception: Just as many reviewers describe it as lightweight. The D2030 has seven easy-to-read fabric/temperature settings. The setting number and fabric type flash on the digital display until the temperature is reached. The iron beeps when it's ready and automatically shuts off if it's idle for 10 minutes. The self-cleaning system flushes out minerals and lint.

Performance

High praise for performance. Consumer and professional reviewers agree that the 1,500-watt Black & Decker Digital Advantage D2030 consistently performs well, produces a lot of steam, heats up quickly and has good audible signals. The iron's affordable price comes up often in user feedback that says the D2030 works better than more expensive brands. Some owners have problems with the steam burst and other features, but others encourage them to make sure they are following the directions. A few reviewers say the iron leaks or the digital display does not work well. It has a one-year limited warranty.
