Warning: the shot-steam function can only be used at high temperatures. Stop
the emission when the indicator lamp (12) comes on, than start ironing again
only after the light has gone off.

Dry ironing
To iron without steam, follow the instructions in section “steam ironing”,
leaving the variable steam control (4) on position “0”.

Spray Function
Make sure that there is water in the reservoir. Press the spray button (5)
slowly (for a dense spray) or quickly (for a vaporized spray).

Warning: for delicate fabrics, we recommend moistening the fabric
beforehand using the spray function (5), or putting a damp cloth between the
iron and the fabric. To avoid staining, do not use the spray on silk or synthetic

Please note: before cleaning the iron in any way, make sure that the
appliance plug is not connected to the socket.
Any deposits, starch residue or size left on the plate can be removed using a
damp cloth or an unabrasive liquid detergent.
Avoid scratching the plate with steel wool or metallic objects.
The plastic parts can be cleaned with a damp cloth then wiped over with a
dry cloth.

--It is important to apply “self-cleaning” at least every two weeks to remove
impurities etc.
--The harder the water the more the iron should be self-cleaned.
1. Set the variable steam control to “0” position.
2. Open the Filler door and fill the water reservoir up to the Max position,
then close the Filler door.
3. Set the temperature control to Max.
4. Insert the mains plug into the wall socket.
5. Allow the iron to heat upuntil the temperature pilot light goes out.
6. Unplug the mains plug.
7. Keep the iron horizontally over the sink.
8. Set the steam control to “selfclean”.Boiling water and steam will now be
emmitted and impurities and any scale washed away from the holes in
the soleplate.
9. Move the iron forwards and backwards while this happens .
10.Reset the variable steam control to “0” position .
11. Move the iron over a(preferably) old piece of cloth. Insert the mains plug,
let the iron heat up again. The remainder of the water inside the steam
chamber will now vaporize and leave the iron through the soleplate.
Undraw and allow the iron cool down

How to put it away
1. Disconnect the plug of the iron from the socket.
2. Empty the reservoir by turning the iron upside down and gently shaking
3. Leave the iron to cool down completely.
4. Roll up the power cord with the rewinder.
5. Always put the iron away in a vertical position.

Advice for good ironing
1. We recommend using the lowest temperatures with fabrics that have
unusual finishes (sequins, embroidery, flush, etc.).
2. If the fabric is mixed (e.g. 40% cotton 60% synthetics), set the
thermostat to the temperature of the fibre requiring the lower
3. If you don't know the composition of the fabric, determine the suitable
temperature by testing on a hidden corner of the garment. Start with a
low temperature and increase it gradually until it reaches the ideal
4. Never iron areas with traces of perspiration or other marks: the heat of
the plate fixes the stains on the fabric, making them irremovable.
5. The size is more effective if you use a dry iron at a moderate
temperature: excess heat scorches it with the risk of forming a yellow
6. To avoid marking silk, woolen or synthetic garments shiny, iron them
inside out.
7. To avoid marking velvet garments shiny, iron in one direction (following
the fibre) and do not press down on the iron.
8. The heavier the washing machine is loaded, the more garments come
out creased. This also happens when the spin drying revolutions are very
9. Many fabrics are easier to iron if they are not completely dry.
For example, silk should always be ironed damp.
