Our exclusive SteamGlide soleplate moves smoothly over any fabric. A durable, 5-layer coating including anti-corrosive base makes it last longer. Non-stick, scratch-resistant and easy to keep clean. This iron operates with ordinary tap water. Calc-clean is a built-in cleaning function to remove calcium buildup, or limescale, and maintain peak performance. The iron shuts itself off if you leave it standing still. On its heel rest, it will automatically switch off in 8 minutes. Lying flat, it shuts down after 30 seconds motionless. The vertical steam function lets you refresh garments right on the hanger and remove creases from curtains as they hang. No ironing board required.
