The TG1050 Steam Iron prevents scorching, accidental tipping and burns. It makes quick work of laundry piles and, best of all, reduces strain on wrists and shoulders caused by repetitive lifting. 1600 watts and powerful steam make this a perfect tool for everyday pressing and ironing. Other features include digitally controlled temperature for consistent precise heating, continuous steam for crisp results with horizontal and vertical bursts of steam, premium stainless steel soleplate with more steam holes for consistent steam flow, a large 12.7 ounce side fill water tank, ergonomic design, and a rounded detailer tip to squeeze in tight corners and cuffs. Eight-minute auto shut-off. Must only be used in the United States and Canada, will not work even with an adapter in Europe.
