A compact cordless iron for ironing both wide and narrow areas of clothing. It features a Point Press 3D ironing surface characterized by a slightly up-tilted back end. The trapezoid shape at the back provides a guide for ironing cuffs and pleats to make it easier to use than conventional irons. It can iron ruffles and gathers without crushing them. The wide area at the front prevents creasing and is perfect for wide areas of material, and the open-handle design makes it easy to rotate. The water tank is larger than usual and is easily opened and closed even if you have long fingernails, and the compact design takes ease-of-use into account.

For a start, this petite, easy-to-handle iron comes in very attractive outer packaging: a box that reflects the shape of the product and is both charming and manageable. The iron itself is small and easily maneuvered, simple to use and even has a very large water tank. This is quite simply an attractive little object that gets everything right.
