This brilliant iron prevents scorching, accidental tipping and burns. The iTouch® Technology makes it even easier! Simply touch the handle and the iron lowers. Take your hand off the iron, and the scorchguards lift the iron off the board. It reduces strain on wrists and shoulders caused by repetitive lifting and saves you time! With 1800 watts and powerful vertical and horizontal bursts of steam, it's the perfect tool for everyday pressing and ironing. Additional features are a 30-minute extended auto-shut off, a 12.7 ounce side fill tank, a bead-blast stainless steel soleplate, flat pressing surface, detailer tip and a 12-foot cord.
