Important safety instructions
● Do not use the iron if it has been
dropped onto a hard surface, or shows
any other sign of damage, or is seen to
leak water.
● The steam travel iron is not suitable for
regular domestic use.
● Great care is necessary when using any
appliance, especially near chil-dren. Do
not leave the steam iron unattended
while connected or on an ironing board.
Always remove the plug from the wall
socket and place the steam iron on its
base stand.
The appliance operates at very high
temperatures. Do not touch any part of
the appliance except the handle. Burns
can occur from touching the hot parts of
the housing or the soleplate and from hot
water or steam. When operating the
steam iron, hold only by the handle. Do
not allow steam to escape in the direction
of anyone nearby.
The iron must be used and stored on a
stable and durable surface only.
With the iron placed on its base stand,
ensure that this too is on a stable and
durable surface.
Do not allow the power cord to touch
hot surfaces. Do not coil the power cord
round the appliance.
Always switch off and remove the plug
from the wall socket after use, and also
- in case of any malfunction,
- during cleaning.
Before the appliance is used, the main
body including the power cord as well as
any attachment fitted should be checked
thoroughly for any defects. Should the
appliance, for instance, have been
dropped onto a hard surface, it must no
longer be used: even invisible damage
may have adverse effects on the
operational safety of the appliance.
The power cord should be regularly
examined for any signs of damage. In the
event of such damage being found, the
appliance must no longer be used.
Do not operate the appliance if excessive
force has been used to pull the power
cord. Damage cannot always be detected
from the outside; the entire unit should
therefore be checked by a qualified
technician before it is used again.
Before refilling or emptying the water
reservoir, remove the plug from the wall
When removing the plug from the wall
socket, never pull on the power cord;
always grip the plug itself.

according to the fabric ironing
temperature. Follow the ironing symbols
and start with the lowest temperature.

if you are not sure about the fabrics, you
may carefully test-iron at a non-visible

steam ironing.
Start up

dust particles from the soleplate and

encountered when first switching on.
Please ensure sufficient ventilation.
General care and cleaning
● Before cleaning the appliance, ensure it is
disconnected from the power supply and
has cooled down completely.
● To avoid the risk of electric shock, do not
clean the appliance with water and do
not immerse it in water.
- If necessary, the unit may be wiped with
a dry fuzz-free cloth.
- Starch, fat and other deposits on the
soleplate may be removed with a woollen
cloth soaked in a vinegar-water solution.
- In order to protect the clean soleplate,
you may occasionally apply a small
amount of paraffin to the warm plate,
wiping it off with a woollen cloth.
● Do not use abrasives or harsh cleaning
● Do not put vinegar or other descalers
into the water reservoir.
● After a long period of non-use, or once a
month, the soleplate should be cleaned as
- Fill half the water reservoir with water
and place it on its base stand.
- Leave the iron to heat on the highest
temperature setting until the indicator
lamp goes out.
- Unplug the appliance, activate the
steam function and shake the iron to
and fro horizontally over a sink.
- Hot water and steam will be emitted by
the holes in the soleplate. This will
result in the removal of dust particles
from the soleplate.

iron heat up again and pass the
soleplate over an old, clean cotton
cloth. The remaining water trapped in
the soleplate will evaporate, helping the
cleaning process.

function can be activated as required, or
completely switched off for dry ironing.
