The pressing surface of the ESP2 Steam Press is almost 14 times larger than a conventional iron cutting your pressing time drastically. It's streamlined design can be operated with one hand, reducing the strain commonly associated with ironing. The press can be placed on a table so the operator can be comfortably seated while using it and pressing will not distort the fabric grain or stretch fabrics the way ironing does thus allowing you to take better care of your fabric and reduce the shine commonly caused by ironing. The steam is pumped electrically from the 300ml water tank to give a true burst of steam--with steam openings covering the entire pressing area. The power and temperature ready indicator light takes the guess work out of knowing when the press is ready to operate.
