The new patented Smart Touch handle senses your hand and lowers the iron to the fabric. Simply let go of the handle and the patented Auto Lift system raises the iron, protecting the fabric and the soleplate. Scorch marks and heavy lifting are now a thing of the past. The Touch & Glide nonstick soleplate glides effortlessly over the fabric to make your ironing easier and take less time. The powerful steam burst works vertically or horizontally to remove stubborn wrinkles.
