Optimal Care technology

2 Thermistor sensors

  • The second sensor allows the water to heat to a higher temperature generating and circulating high volume steam
  • Quicker warm-up time: iron is ready to use in under 1 minute

1700 Watts of power
  • High wattage allows for the high volume steam while maintaining the constant low temperature of the soleplate

3-way self-cleaning system
  • Anti-Calcium system helps to prevent clogged steam vents by reducing the sediment build-up in the vaporizing chamber of the iron
  • Self-cleaning system: simply press the Auto-Clean button to feed water into the vaporizing chamber in the tank to clean the iron
  • A power shot of steam is released to take away scale that may build up around the steam holes

Electronic 3-way Auto Shut-Off function
  • When the iron is left unmoved on it soleplate facing down for approx. 1 minute, it will automatically shut off
  • When the iron is left unmoved on its side for approx. 1 minute, it will automatically shut off
  • When the iron is left unmoved on its heel rest for approx. 10 minutes, it will automatically shut off 

Anti-drip system
  • When temperature of soleplate's surface drops too low, the valve for the vaporizing chamber in the iron automatically closes and stop water from flowing
  • Prevents hot, unvaporized water from spewing out of the soleplate when iron has cooled down

  • HOT

    It does everything the live video demonstration showed it doing. I followed all the instructions carefully and I got great results. I still have more testing to do, but I'm confident I'll get favorable results as well. I love the Iron.

  • Cagin

    This iron is heavy duty with a lot of steam action. I like creases in my pants and this iron does the job. Another good feature is you don't have to guess the temperature setting because it only has one and it gets the job done. Now all the irons I have used in the past seem cheap and took twice as long to get my ironing done.

  • Iron

    This iron is no different than any other iron. Used the steam on my shower curtain after I washed it, and it didn't release wrinkles. Used the iron on it and it ironed like my old one. I returned it because it wasn't anything special!
