This iron is a lot more powerful than a normal steam iron. This model has the highest pressure that is currently available on the market, with easy descaling and the one perfect temperature setting.
Fill up the removable water tank, which holds a whopping 2.5 litres, and then simply start ironing without worrying about anything else, or having to stop.
One of the most annoying things, when it comes to ironing, is having to constantly change the temperature of your iron. That needs to be done of course, depending on the type of the material you are ironing.
This model has what is an optimal temperature. In other words, it doesn't matter if you are ironing a silk blouse or a pair of jeans, you can just get on with it.
That is because this iron will not burn or scorch clothes. That alone will save you hours of time.
The main reason for that is that the high pressured steam 96.7 bars) does the ironing, and not the temperature of the sole plate.
