Now you can iron everything from jeans to silk with no temperature setting required. Guaranteed no burn on all ironable fabrics.

Safe to leave the hot soleplate on the ironing board

The innovative Philips OptimalTEMP technology guarantees no burns on all ironable fabrics. During ironing, there is no need to put your iron back on the base station; just leave the hot iron soleplate directly on the garments or cotton ironing board cover without an additional resting accessory. It will not damage any of your ironable garments, or the board. This makes your ironing easier, with less wrist effort.
