For more than 20 years, the Reliable 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 eliminate condensation even when used with an extra long steam hose. A manual reset thermal fuse and thermostat with heavy-duty round riveted points ensure safety and longevity. Proudly Made in Italy.
