Anti-calc system
A special resin filter inside the water reservoir softens the water and prevents
scale build-up in the plate. The resin filter is permanent and does not need

Please Note:
Use tap water only. Distilled and/demineralised water makes the "Zero-Calc"
anti-calc system ineffective by altering its physicochemical characteristics.
Do not use chemical additives, scented substances or decalcifiers. Failure to
comply with the above-mentioned regulations leads to the loss of guarantee.

Anti-drip system
With the anti-drip system, you can perfectly iron even the most delicate
Always iron these fabrics at low temperatures. The plate may cool down to
the point where no more steam comes out, but rather drops of boiling
water that can leave marks or stains. In these cases, the Anti-drip system
automatically activates to prevent vaporization, so that you can iron the
most delicate fabrics without risk of spoiling or staining them.

General instructions
When using the iron for the first time, you may notice a slight emission of
smoke and hear some sounds made by the expanding plastics. This is quite
normal and it stops after a short time. We also recommend passing the
iron over an ordinary cloth before using it for the first time.

Soft the laundry to be ironed according to the international symbols on the
garment label, or if this is missing, according to the type of fabric.

Start ironing the garments requiring a low temperature.
This reduces the waiting times (the iron takes less time to heat up than to
cool down) and eliminates the risk of scorching the fabric.

Filling the reservoir

Check that the plug is disconnected from the socket.

2. Move the steam selector (5) to “0” [Fig. 1].
3. Open the lid (2).
4. Raise the tip of the iron to help the water enter the opening without
5. Slowly pour the water into the reservoir using the special measure (12)
and taking care not to go over the maximum level (about 350ml)
indicated by “MAX” on the reservoir [Fig. 2].
6. Close the lid (2).

Selecting the temperature.
1. Put the iron in a vertical position.
2. Put the plug in the socket.
3. Adjust the thermostat knob (10) according to the international symbol
on the garment label [Fig. 3]. The plate temperature control light (9)
indicates that the iron is heating up. Wait until the plate temperature
control light goes off before ironing.
Warning: during ironing, the plate temperature control light (9) comes on at
intervals, indicating that the selected temperature is maintained. If you lower
the thermostat temperature after ironing at a high temperature, do not start
ironing until the plate temperature control light comes on again.

Selecting the steam.
The quantity of steam is regulated by the steam selector (5).
1. Move the steam selector to a position between minimum and maximum
depending on the quantity of steam required and the temperature selected
[Fig. 1].
Warning: the iron gives off steam continuously only if you hold the iron
horizontally. You can stop the continuous steam by placing the iron in a
vertical position or by moving the steam selector to “0”. As indicated on the
thermostat knob (11) and in the initial table, you can only use steam at the
highest temperatures. If the selected temperature is too low, water may
drip onto the plate.

Selecting Shot-steam and steam when ironing vertically.
Press the s hot-steam button (3) to generate a powerful burst of steam that
can penetrate the fabrics and smooth the most difficult and tough creases.
Wait for a few seconds before pressing again [Fig. 4].
By pressing the shot-steam button at intervals you can also iron vertically
(curtains, hung garments, etc.) [Fig. 5].
Warning: the shot-steam function can only be used at high temperatures.
Stop the emission when the plate temperature control light (9) comes on,
than start ironing again only after the light has gone off.
