The Panasonic NI-C78SR Steam/Dry iron provides an impressive 1200 watts of power. It is full of useful features, making ironing easier and more effective.

The soleplate is non-stick stainless steel, so there is no need to worry about material clinging to it and being ruined. It also makes cleaning the plate so much quicker and easier. I have found that the plate glides efforlessly over clothes, and does not get caught up in the material.

The various settings range in temperature from 176 to 392 degrees, which shows that you can adjust the iron to the exact requirements of the material. The base of the iron even sports a handy reference guide to help you match different fabrics to the correct setting. This iron can also be set to use vertically; perfect for ironing curtains and hanging clothes.

More stubborn wrinkles are simple to tackle with the jet steam function. For all over steaming, there are settings for heavier (more steam) and lighter (less steam) materials. Of course there is also the dry-iron option, to iron without any steam at all.

Safety features include automatic shut-off after 10 minutes of being left standing upright, or after 60 seconds of lying plate-down. The cord is retractable, keeping it tidy and secure. One important point to note is that the cord is fitted to the right of the iron, rather than on a pivot. This means that a left-handed user may find the cord gets in their way.

For added ease, the water tank is removable, making it very easy to fill up. With my previous iron there were always spillages, as the bulk of the iron got in the way of the water tank opening. It is recommended that hard or softened water is not used with this iron. If your water is not suitable, it is advisable to use bottled water instead, so this could be a drawback. The iron is also fitted with an anti-calcium system meaning the vents are kept free from being blocked.

This iron comes with all the temperature and material settings I could ever wish to use. Extra features such as the retractable cord and vertical -use setting, make it worth spending a little bit extra on. In addition, its Good Houskeeping seal of approval, meant the Panasonic NI- C78SR was already tried and tested, and found to be reliable.
