Rapid and powerful heating, expanded steam coverage and an ultra premium Beadblast Chromium soleplate make the TG1100 Steam Iron ideal for frequent household use. Features Oliso's patented, award-winning iTouch technology which prevents scorching, accidental tipping and burns. Simply touch the handle and the iron lowers, ready to work. Take your hand off and the patented scorch guards lift the iron off the board preventing scorches, burns, and tipping. Less strain and 30% time savings are added benefits. It makes quick work of laundry piles and, best of all, reduces strain on wrists and shoulders caused by repetitive lifting. 1800 watts and powerful continuous, horizontal, and vertical steam make this a perfect tool for frequent pressing and ironing. Other features include digitally controlled temperature for consistent precise heating, premium scratch-resistant beadblast finish stainless steel soleplate with more steam holes for consistent steam flow, a large 12.7 ounce side fill tank, ergonomic design, and a pointed 2-inch 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.
