UNIVERSAL IRON / wireless induction-heated iron

UNIVERSAL IRON
UNIVERSAL IRON

Developed in 2010, this iron is based on the principles of universal design. It is a wireless and easy-to-handle steam iron heated by induction. The simple principle, similar to stoves and cooking pots, is reflected in the distribution of functions. The adjustments of temperature are at the ironing board, the steam level can be adjusted at the iron. Its body is almost power- less, safe and easy to refill. The board interspersed with small inductors, provides fast and accurate heating of the sole through detection. The iron sole indicates the current temperature by a coloured LED. All that could make ironing easy and safe.
