The temperature of the soleplate of the steam iron can be regulated in 4 stages.

Since one 3350 Steam discharge the steam button must hold at AEG DBS, this ironing system can also be quite normal to dry ironing use.

In most cases, however, one will work with steam and then has the following options:

    • After switching must only wait 1.5 minutes, until the water is heated in the tank. During this time the lights temperature display on the iron (below the turntable for adjusting the temperature) and only goes out when the machine can produce steam.

For this offers the AEG DBS 3350 3 stages, which can be adjusted at the back of the station via a button on the control panel: low, medium, high. The option currently set level is thereby displayed on an illuminated icon on the control panel. The brackets with a ” steam function” is not offered by the device, but can be simulated by combining “high temperature” and “high steam output”.
    • As with most other steam irons also can 3350 the DBS to ” vertical ironing use”. If you here are working with the maximum values of temperature and steam power, so caution is needed, so that the steam ejection always goes in the right direction and not scalded about the hands or arms of the user.
  • It is particularly pleasant, that during operation at any time to refill the tank water can. Thus, sometimes longer “bow sessions” possible.
