Ultra powerful steam
Safe rest
Smart Calc clean
An ultra-fast ironing experience can be yours
with revolutionary technology. The powerful
and continuous steam tackles even rough
creases, and thicker fabrics are smoothed out
with ease and speed. Plus there's an extra
steam boost if needed, perfect for vertical
steaming or stubborn creases.
Innovative OptimalTEMP technology
guarantees no burn on all ironable fabrics. As
well as the reassurance this provides whilst
ironing, it also means you can leave the hot
iron soleplate directly on your cotton ironing
board without causing any damage. This helps
to reduce any discomfort to your wrists, as
you won't need to lift the iron to and from its
base as often
Regular descaling protects your iron and
maintains steam performance. The Smart CalcClean system is an integrated descaling and
cleaning function to extend the lifespan of your
steam generator iron. The iron will remind you
with both light and sound that cleaning and
descaling is needed. Simply place your iron
onto the Smart Calc-Clean container and start
the process. It takes approx. 2 minutes for the
dirty water and scale to be collected, your
steam generator will beep once it's done and
ready to use again.
OptimalTEMP technology
1.5 L water tank
Tested and approved
With OptimalTEMP technology you'll no
longer have to waste time changing
temperature settings, waiting for the
temperature to adjust or pre-sorting clothes.
Iron fabrics from jeans to silk, with guaranteed
no burns thanks to the perfect combination of
temperature and continuous powerful steam.
The water tank has a 1.5 L capacity, so you get
the convenience of up to 1.5 hours of
continuous use, with no need to top-up the
tank. It's also transparent, so you can get a
360°view of the tank to easily see how much
water you have left to continue creating steam
efficiently. When you do need to refill, your
steam generator iron has a large filling hole
that allows you to easily fill the water tank
under the tap, or alternatively with a jug or
bottle at any time during ironing
