Ironing

0

When choosing an iron, you should consider the frequency and amount of ironing you intend to do. For occasional ironing of small amounts of clothing, a classic dry iron will suffice. If, however, you regularly iron large amounts of laundry, you should consider a steam generator iron instead. For normal ironing, regular steam irons are ideal.

Dry irons

  • Iron without steam
  • Ironing is more difficult compared with steam irons, but is suitable for light use
  • Not suitable for all materials
  • Cheapest option

Steam irons

  • Hot steam is used to iron clothes, which makes ironing easier
  • Important parameters: steam output (min. 40 g / min) and power (min. 1400 W)
  • Medium price range

Steam generators

  • Steam generators feature an external tank where steam is kept under constant pressure
  • Unlike steam irons, it is not necessary to add water to the tank
  • Service is fast and simple
  • Thanks to the separate steam generator, the iron itself is light
  • More expensive than other types

Soleplate material

  • The soleplate should be resistant to scratches, which reduce the overall quality of the iron
  • Less durable materials: stainless steel, aluminium, Teflon
  • More durable materials: ceramic and sapphire

Features

  • Steam burst - short-term burst of high-pressure steam for easier ironing
  • Vertical steam - for ironing in a vertical position
  • Descaling system - protects against limescale build-up in the iron
  • Anti-drip system (Anti Drip, Drip Stop) - prevents unwanted water from dripping on the laundry

Ironing

Ironing

A Little Bit of History
Irons are an integral part of the modern home, but they were first used over a thousand years ago. Over time, people learnt that ironing was more effective using a hot surface. Stoves and fires were commonly used to heat the surface, and in Asia, for example, they used “pan irons”, which contained hot embers. Later, irons were heated by burning alcohol or oil, and in the 19th century, the first true forerunner of today’s irons was introduced, already containing immersion heaters powered by electricity. Steam irons first became available in the 20th century, making the whole process much easier.


Choosing the Right Iron
Returning to the present, many people select cheaper irons believing that the result will be the same. Since ironing is a weekly if not daily activity for most, however, we recommend you choose carefully. More expensive irons last longer and are kinder to clothes thanks to high-quality materials that reduce friction and the risk of scratching. The next thing to consider is the angle of the tip and the roundness of the heel for easier ironing of collars. And last but not least, irons with button grooves make ironing shirts faster and easier.

If you use steam a lot when ironing, it’s important to choose a quality steam system that enables effective limescale removal. For better results, choose an iron that features multiple steam holes on the base plate, especially around the tip of the iron. As for descaling, modern irons include an automatic system while other models, for example, are equipped with interchangeable iron filter cartridges or sticks.


Tip: Make ironing even easier! View our steam generator, garment steamer and iron accessory sections.
