Black & Decker D2030 Iron is a best-selling steam iron with thousands of happy customers and a place in our top 7 steam irons list. But why?
Apart from being a high-quality iron, the D2030 is also inexpensive. A winning combination!
Let’s get into its strengths and weaknesses a bit more.
What Comes in the Box
- 1 X Black & Decker D2030 Iron
- User Manual
Product Features & Technical Details
The unit measures 11.5 inches by 4.9 inches by 6.3 inches. It weighs four pounds. It is equipped with a digital LCD for easier checking of its mode and settings.
Other important features are:
Clear-View Display: As indicated earlier, it is equipped with a digital LCD display so you can get the best ironing performance regardless of the fabric you work on. Moreover, its water tank is clearly marked for better monitoring.
Intuitive Dial: The iron component is responsible for giving you power over the steam and temperature settings in relation to the clothing you iron.
High-quality Soleplate: This part is made of heavy-duty and durable stainless steel. It irons out creases effortlessly and works on all types of fabric.
Ergonomically Designed Handle: You will find it comfortable despite using the iron for long periods. It will fit nicely in anyone’s hand.
Auto-Cleaning Feature: It gets rid of deposits and impurities by itself to keep the equipment at peak performance.
Automatic Shut-Off: The steam iron shuts off after half a minute when left on the sides or on the soleplate. Alternatively, it turns off after eight minutes when left on the heel.
Moisture Control: It generates the right amount of moisture by simply pressing a single button for quicker completion of task.
Drip Prevention: Despite ironing at low temperature, it will avoid water from passing through the soleplate.
The price to quality ratio is hard to beat. The Rowentas that are ahead of it in our Top 7 rankings are more expensive.
It’s the right weight, the steam is fantastic, it heats up in seconds. We didn’t experience any dripping and it just works as you’d want.
There are reports of people experiencing sudden loss of heat, but we couldn’t replicate that.
- Comes with digital LCD

Conclusion and Recommendation
From us it’s two thumbs up. Some of the other Black+Deckers we’ve tried have been disappointing so we were doubly surprised to get our hands on this beautiful iron. Very good product, recommended.
