Titanium with Non-Stick Coating Curved Soleplate
An iron with a curved soleplate concentrates pressure at the center of the iron, instead of at the tip, so there is less tugging, snagging, and minimal wrinkling.
The push-button spray mist lets you direct extra moisture where needed.
A powerful burst of steam helps remove stubborn wrinkles. This feature also helps clean the iron steam vents.
Helps prevent clogged steam vents by reducing build-up in the vaporizing chamber of the iron.
Three steam settings can be selected – 'high' steam for heavier fabrics, 'low' steam for touch-ups, as well as 'dry' for no steam output.
3-Way Auto Shut-Off
The mercury-free sensor automatically shuts off the iron after 10 minutes if left in the upright position and after one minute if left unmoved on its soleplate or if tipped over on its side.
Automatic Retractable Reel
With just a push of a button, the cord automatically retracts into the reel house, elimination messy storage.

I picked this iron because of the retractable cord, the vertical steam function, and because it's Panasonic, the same company that made my TV, which actually IS my BFF. Man, I'm really painting a flattering picture of myself right now.
Anyway, I tested this iron on a cotton dress shirt and on heavyweight silk/cotton blend drapes (using the vertical steam function).
- The retractable cord is everything I wanted it to be. The cord is 7-8' in length, and retracts into the base at the push of the button.
- Super fast -- heats up in 1-2 minutes.
- Strong "Jet of Steam" feature injects a powerful burst of steam into wrinkled fabric. It worked to smooth the crooked seams on my shirt in 2 passes.
- Pretty easy to fill under the sink.
- Smooth ironing experience, good heft without being tiresome to move. Very "glidey."
- Awkward placement of control dial under the handle. The dial is really flat, maybe 1/4", and it's hard to maneuver under the sloped handle to get the setting you want.
- Not very good for drapery or larger vertical steam needs. The manual says you have to stretch the fabric taut while passing the iron vertically very close to the surface, but not touching. To do this, one would need a third hand. Since I only have two hands, I couldn't stretch the drapery fabric while also directing the steam, so I just grazed the surface without touching the fabric. It was not very effective, though it would probably be OK for light weight garments or spot treatments. Or if you had that third hand.Read more ›
9. It's purple! That makes it easy to spot and sometimes it even makes me smile when I'm ironing.
8. It heats up quickly. No waiting around for the iron to be ready. It's ready to go.
7. It's light and handles easily. The term "iron" implies heavy, and of course, early irons were, well, made of iron and HEAVY. This is apparently not made of iron and glides around like a little ice skater on your wrinkled shirts. Apparently it has a titanium finish that helps with the gliding thing. Ice skaters may want to look into that.
6. A retractable cord. Yep. That sucker zips right back into the iron. Always hated wrapping the cord around the handle and then trying to stand the iron upright and having it fall over because the cord made the bottom all lumpy.
5. A nice long cord. I can set the ironing board up in the kitchen, plug in the iron by the espresso machine, and iron my clothes for work while brewing an Americano. The cord also rotates, which keeps it from getting tangled in, say, your espresso machine or that cup you left on the counter.
4. It doesn't require special water. You don't need to haul a jug of distilled water home from the store and then try to find a place to store the bottle that you purchased only to fill your iron. Even better, you don't need to empty it each time. AND you can eyeball the water level through the little water window. It even has an anti-calcium system that keep gross clumpy things from forming in your iron.
3. A burst of steam feature that can be adjusted for heavy fabrics vs. light fabrics.Read more ›
This one is as easy to use as the other one. Manufacturers have finally figured out to place the fill opening so the iron can be filled vertically without spilling. It glides smoothly over fabric, something you'd take for granted until you had an iron that doesn't.
The only thing I don't like is that (compared to my other Panasonic), there's a "wobble" when I place it upright. I think it's because this iron is a bit large for its base, and the balance doesn't seem quite right. Another minor quibble has nothing to do with performance: Manufacturers need to stop putting a plastic film on the sole plate. It's too easy to turn the iron on without looking at the sole plate, which I did. I'm thinking "What's that smell?" The film curled but didn't melt, so I didn't have to clean melted gunk off the plate.
I like the retractable cord, and the dial is easy to read and in an accessible position. The water empties without mess. I'll edit this review after I've used the iron awhile longer.
I had this out of the box and up and running in about 3 minutes. The Panasonic has good fill placement and is easy to stick under the faucet for filling so there is no need for an additional filling container. After plugging the iron in and setting the temperature the base was hot and producing steam in just about 1 minute. It takes 2 or 3 passes to get a section of the shirt pressed with a natural motion. The iron produced and distributed steam evenly without any spitting or bubbling. Panasonic claims the U shaped soleplate makes better steam distribution and I would have to agree. Buttons for steam and spray worked as expected. The Panasonic soleplate did not offer any advantage for me over the non-stick bottom of my Rowenta but it works well and the iron slides reasonably smooth. I would give an edge to the non stick bottom if push came to shove but putting a hundred dollar bill in my pocket and getting 99% of the performance with this iron seems much smarter to me. I actually like the lighter weight of the Panasonic. The cord placement is good and stays out of the way when in use. It retracts nicely as you would expect. Even when I "tested" (actually I didn't mean to do it) over extending the cord, it still retracted like a champ.
Every iron I have seen these days has an auto-shut off including this one which I would consider an important safety feature for absent minded bachelors.
I think this does exactly what you would expect at a great price and is a top choice for an iron.
