It has a easy to fill 1.7L water tank it is recommended that if you live in a hard water area then use distilled or demineralised water you can iron for over a hour on just one tankful of water,
It also has a smart calc-clean system to make sure that it gets a regular descaling and clean.
it flashes and beeps when it needs to be done and if not done within a hour it will turn the steam off so the iron don't get broke.It comes with a cool looking tool called a smart Calc-Clean container that you put the iron plate on then you need to press the Calc-Clean button on the iron base for two seconds until you hear a short beep,It makes a funny sound as it pumps about it only takes about two minutes all the time sat on the container,Once its done you then wipe the plate and put it back on the base,CAUTION is needed as the container is VERY VERY hot so leave it for a while before tipping the water away then wash and dry for the next time,
Using the iron is amazing you need to keep the button pressed for the steam,
The Optimal Temp technology enables you to iron all types of fabrics without adjusting the iron temperature or steam.
And lastly it has a energy saving ECO mode what is automatically activated when you switch it on,If you use the ECO mode (less steam) you can save energy without compromising the results of your ironing. (it can be turned off)
I just love the easy grip handle and its long cord and you can leave the iron face down on the ironing board and it leaves no burn marks if you accidentally leave it on a garment to long, Even the toughest of creases cant hide from this bad boy it glides through them like a hot knife would with butter.This is 100% the best iron there ever has been made, I hung a new set of curtains and used the iron to steam the creases out while they were hanging and the results were amazing,I really loved the way i could be ironing jeans one moment then ironing a silk top with no switching the temperature this Optimal temp technology is awesome were has it been all my life.(I hated ironing before this) Also if you leave the iron idle for more than 5 Min's it goes into standby to save energy,There is also a switch to turn it off and on at the base so you don't need to unplug it if you need to leave it a while.
