Even if a garment is labeled 'permanent press', it is likely that it will need the attention of an iron sooner or later. Some fabrics, such as linen and cotton will definitely need to be pressed before clothing made from these can be worn, and the choice of an iron that can handle all sorts of fabrics easily is important. This is why the Panasonic NI-W750TS Steam Iron is such an important appliance.

This Panasonic Steam Iron is easy to use in several ways. To begin with, the iron is lightweight, so it can be used for long periods of time without causing fatigue or strain. The controls are easy to understand, as well, and consist of dots, words, and symbols to help the user choose the correct settings for the job. For example, low heat is shown by a single dot, while high heat by three dots. Before beginning to iron any garment, check the label as this dot system is often used to indicate the temperature at which to iron the article.

Most irons have a straight back edge to the soleplate, which means that if the user tries to make the iron go backwards the fabric can bunch up and have wrinkles 'ironed in'. The Panasonic Steam Iron, however, is pointed at both ends so that it can be used in any direction without trouble. Ironing will be speeded up if the iron is able to move as easily backwards as forwards, with the chance of bunching eliminated. The slight curvature of the soleplate also helps to make the movements of the iron smoother.

Ironing larger items such as bedspreads can be a real chore just due to the size, but this iron makes the job a good deal easier. Not only does the shape of the soleplate allow the user to move the iron in all directions, but the ample size of the soleplate assures that more area is covered by each stroke. There are 74 steam vents so that an even distribution of moisture will remove wrinkles from any article, large or small, as quickly as possible. Using this Panasonic Steam Iron will leave you with more time to do things that you might enjoy more than ironing. Time is often at a premium in today's world, so anything that can save some is a bonus.

Besides being used in the conventional way, the Panasonic NI-W750TS Steam Iron is also great for steaming such articles as drapes or suits in situ. By holding the iron in an upright position, the user will be able to deliver blasts of steam to wrinkled curtains easily, without having to remove them from the windows. The lapels of suits should never really be ironed, but steaming them can return them to their desired appearance. The water reservoir is quite large in this Panasonic iron and it is not only easy to fill, but is designed to prevent messy overfilling. The buttons controlling steam are convenient to use.

Keeping in mind that safety is important when using an iron, this Panasonic Steam Iron has some features that will keep the home safe. The iron will shut itself off if it is left in a horizontal position for 60 seconds or if it falls on its side. Leaving the iron in an upright position for 10 minutes without use will also result in the iron being turned off. These thoughtful measures will assure that a fire will not be able to be started with this iron.

The Panasonic NI-W750TS Steam Iron is reasonably priced at about $44.00, and comes with a one year warranty. The ease of use of this iron, as well as the price, definitely recommends this Panasonic when a new iron is being sought.
