The gadget on our desk is not a model of some intergalactic space ship. It is, in fact, the latest in clothes-ironing technology. The iron is the 360 Quick from Panasonic.
Like most readers, ironing clothes is not on the top of our interns' list of favorite things to do. However, they just suck it up and do it. To make the task faster and less troublesome, Panasonic has put some fresh eyes on this household gadget and came up with some interesting features which may help.
The 360 Quick takes its name from the new elliptically-shaped soleplate. This design allows for fast multidirectional movements of the iron, decreasing overall ironing time by 25%. The surface of the soleplate is made with scratch-resistant material such as ceramic and titanium. These materials are 6X more durable than stainless steel!
In addition to the Panasonic 360° Quick Iron’s unique design, the steam/dry iron also features:
- Temperature control dial to set precise heat for all fabrics, including silk
- Adjustable steam from all steam holes to effectively tackle large areas without repeated attempts
- Extra jet (burst) of steam with self-cleaning steam vents to get out stubborn wrinkles
- Large soleplate to speed jobs such as tablecloths and curtains
- 3 way auto-shutoff safety feature to avoid worry
We have a bunch of dress shirts and other things assembled for the interns to iron. They will have a full write-up on the time-saving claims once they are done with their current task of cleaning out the gutters. Gotta love them. They are so freakin' enthusiastic. [Permalink] - Panasonic 360 Quick
