The iron is very compact and the design has its merits. Big and ergonomically arranged buttons and steam regulator are marked with corresponding icons. Conveniently located water container – right in the center of the body and its lid with a silicone insert ensures water tightness.
In the upright position, the iron is very stable, t.k. Its base is equipped with rubber inserts. There is also not very convenient design feature – the lack of handle proper: the iron has to be kept by the body, which has grooves on the sides for the fingers. For ironing two or three things, it is not critical, but the brush gets tired with more things. Voltage switch allows iron to be used both in Europe and America.
SOLEPLATE QUALITY AND GLIDE
The soleplate area is one of the smallest in the test, which does not prevent it perfectly slip and do not scratch the fabric. There is a gap between the soleplate and the body for easy ironing next to the buttons. 5 holes for steam output with grooves for better distribution on the fabric.
DRY IRONING IN DIFFERENT MODES
Mode 1 for synthetic and silk heats the soleplate to the optimum temperature for these materials and provides delicate ironing of thin synthetic materials in the test this was a saree . Mode 2 is great for ironing thick fleece: the fabric does not burn and is smooth.
Semi-synthetic blouse is also perfectly ironed. The mode 3 for cotton is really hot, and the cotton and linen are smoothing out well, especially the undried or slightly moistened clothes.
IRONING WITH STEAM
No sprinkler, but constant steam on max mode. Steam is not very fast, but it is delivered relatively evenly, the 70ml container is big for a travel model, and there is enough water for a relatively long time.
No vertical steaming: when the iron is in an upright position, the steam stops flowing. By the way, nowhere in the instructions and does not say about the vertical steaming – the announcement of the function is on the body of the iron, but in fact the model is not very suitable for this.
