For more than 20 years, the 2200IR 220V, 1.75 kg professional steam iron has been the industry standard for seamstresses, tailors and garment manufacturers. The cork handle provides comfort to use for long periods. To ensure dry steam, the aluminum soleplate has 32 separate steam chambers which eliminates condensation even when used with an extra long steam hose. A manual reset thermal fuse, and thermostat with heavy-duty round riveted points ensures safety and longevity. Proudly Made in Italy.
