Product Details

Panasonic Steam Iron With Curved Soleplate - NIC78SR

Panasonic Good Housekeeping Seal

Key Features:

  • 1200 Watts
  • Curved Stainless Steel Soleplate
  • 3-Way Auto Shut-Off
  • Automatic Retractable Cord Reel
  • Detachable Water Tank
  • Vertical Steam
  • Jet-of-Steam/Self-Cleaning
  • Anti-Calcium System
  • Adjustable Steam
  • Pushbutton Steam/Dry Selector
  • Spray Mist

Features:

  • 3-Way Auto Shut-Off
    The mercury-free electronic sensor automatically shuts off the iron after 10 minutes if left in the upright position, and after 60 seconds if left unmoved on its soleplate or if tipped over on its side.
  • Curved Soleplate
    An iron with a curved soleplate concentrates pressure at the center of the iron, instead of at the tip, so there’s less tugging, snagging, and minimal wrinkling.
  • Automatic Retractable Cord Reel
    With just a touch of a button, the cord reel automatically retracts the cord into the real housing.
  • Detachable Water Tank
    Easily snaps on and off the main unit, allowing for convenient fill up at the sink.
  • Vertical Steam
    With the push of a button, the vertical steam feature allows you to direct an extra burst of steam where needed.
  • Jet-of-Steam/Self-Cleaning
    A powerful burst of steam helps remove stubborn wrinkles. This feature also helps clean the iron steam vents.
  • Anti-Calcium System
    Helps prevent clogged steam vents by reducing sediment build-up in the vaporizing chamber of the iron.
  • Adjustable Steam
    Two steam settings can be selected – “high” steam for heavier fabrics or “low” steam for touch-ups, as well as “dry” for no steam output.
  • Spray Mist
    The push-button spray mist lets you direct extra moisture where needed.

My 25 year old Panasonic iron finally died a month or so ago. Looked at other brands, but in the end decided to buy another Panasonic. I really like the auto wind up cord and most don't offer that feature. The iron isn't heavy (unlike other brands), easy to fill and has steam and spray features - really didn't need much else. It heats up quickly and cools down just as fast. it's very stable when sitting upright on the ironing board. I don't like green, so for me that was the only downside to it, but bought it anyway due to the great service of my past iron and other reviews I had read. Not really necessary to spend $$$ on an iron - this one was a great deal.

This model breaks down for two reasons: the electrical cord coating wears out quickly and the cord loses it internal electrical connection.

    Comments about Panasonic Steam Iron With Curved Soleplate:

    Great iron in every way, until the plastic hinged cap that holds the water in the iron broke off. Now it is not useable for us. Of course this happened post the one-year warranty. I won't buy another one because of this. Otherwise, it was my dream iron.

    Not a bad inexpensive iron however the water reserve is very small and the unit doesn't send a lot of steam out. I use it a lot and just refill that water reserve

    Comments about Panasonic Steam Iron With Curved Soleplate:

    I was spoiled by my previous Panasonic iron, whichis no longer produced. It was very similar to this model, but had a non stick sole plate. Liked it much better. This one will do the job, just a little let down by it. Delivery was super fast.

        Comments about Panasonic Steam Iron With Curved Soleplate:

        I especially like how the water reservoir slips off and you just take it to the faucet to fill it. The iron is also very light weight. That's important to me. It's the first iron I've actually enjoyed using.

          I used this iron on my quilt project this weekend and oh my gosh! Love.it. I knew my old iron was bad but had no idea how bad it was until I used this one. Perfect for quilt projects. The only thing I do not like is that I keep accidentally hitting the cord recoil button, it's not in a very good spot.

                      I had originally bought this iron because of the simple fact that it had a retractable cord. I wasn't expecting to pay more than $35.00 for an iron because they usually don't last for me. I was unaware of all the extra features that this model had until i took it home and put it to use. Now, I am ready to purchase a new one and I will definitely choose Panasonic. Excellent quality and you do get what you pay for!!!
