Panasonic U-Shape Steam-Circulating Iron
U-shaped nonstick soleplate for smooth gliding and enhanced steam circulation. View larger.A useful addition to any busy household, Panasonic's innovative U-Shape steam-circulating iron makes quick work of pressing creases into pant legs, removing wrinkles from work shirts, and creating crisp clean lines--from skirts and dresses to napkins, table cloths, and more. Ironing doesn't have to be a chore when wielding the right kind of iron.
Uniquely Designed Soleplate
Standing apart from the rest, Panasonic's handheld iron features a unique U-shaped design on the end of its soleplate that helps circulate steam under the soleplate for smoother ironing and enhanced steam coverage. The iron's durable titanium soleplate also comes with a nonstick coating to help ensure effortless gliding, while its slightly curved shape puts the pressure at the center of the iron instead of at the tip, which means less tugging, snagging, and minimal wrinkling.
Adjustable steam, spray-mist button, and temperature-control dial. (Model NI-E650TR shown.) View larger.Another thoughtful detail includes the adjustable-steam and spray-mist features. The iron's adjustable-steam function makes it possible to generate the right amount of steam for the job--high steam for heavy fabric like wool, cotton, and linen or low steam for quick touch-ups or lighter fabrics like silk. The spray-mist option delivers an extra burst of moisture with a push of the button--great for removing stubborn wrinkles. Both options are easily accessible on the top of the curved handle.
With a simple turn of the dial, the iron quickly heats to the temperature desired--and keeps it there. The temperature ranges from 176 to 392 degrees F, but the five, clearly labeled fabric settings on the dial make it easy to choose the amount of heat needed for the job. A handy indicator light will illuminate once the desired temperature has been reached.
Other highlights include a hip-up profile that makes it possible to see more of the item being ironed, a transparent water window for at-a-glance monitoring of the water level, a wide opening for easily filling the iron with water, 1200 watts of power, and the Good Housekeeping seal of approval.
Panasonic offers three U-Shape steam-circulating iron models to choose from--view the chart below to compare.U-Shape Iron Features
Curved Titanium Soleplate with Nonstick Coating
An iron with a curved soleplate concentrates pressure at the center of the iron, instead of at the tip, so there's less tugging, snagging, and minimal wrinkling.
The U-Shaped design helps circulate steam under the soleplate for smoother* ironing with up to 25%* more steam coverage.
*When compared to other conventional corded Panasonic irons. Research by Panasonic Corporation.
The adjustable-steam feature allows for adjusting the steam to perfectly suit favorite fabrics; "high" steam for heavier fabrics to "low" steam for touch-ups and "dry" for no steam output.
The spray mist feature makes it possible to direct extra moisture where needed without saturating.
Dial Temperature Control
The easy-to-use dial temperature control maintains the selected temperature accurately.
Temperature-Ready Indicator Light
The temperature-ready indicator light conveniently signals that the temperature setting is on or off.
Large Water Window
The see-through design allows for easy viewing when filling up at the sink and at-a-glance monitoring of water levels when ironing.
Wide Water Refill
A wide opening allows for convenient refilling of the water tank as needed.
