Product Details

Panasonic 360° Quick Multi-Directional Steam/Dry Iron with Curved Alumite Soleplate - NIW950A

Panasonic Good Housekeeping Seal

Key Features:

  • Alumite Scratch Proof / Non-Stick Coated Curved Soleplate
  • 10 Foot Cord Length
  • 1700 Watts
  • 3-Way Self-Cleaning System
  • 3-Way Auto Shut-Off

Features:

  • Alumite Soleplate
    Anodized aluminum is an excellent heat conductor, highly scratch resistant, and extremely durable. The Alumite soleplate also glides smoothly on various materials to ensure exceptional ironing.
  • Patented Dual Tip Curved Soleplate
    This patented soleplate design allows for quick and effortless multi-directional ironing.
  • 10 Foot Cord Length
    Convenient extra long cord length.
  • 3-Way Auto Shut-Off
    Our mercury-free electronic sensor automatically shuts off the iron after 10 minutes if it is left in the upright position. The iron will also turn off after 60 seconds if it is tipped over on its side or left unmoved on the soleplate.
  • Powerful 360° Steam
    Thanks to putting steam holes around the entire edge of the soleplate, more steam can be generated over a wider area.
  • Vertical Steam
    The powerful shot releases 130g / min of steam to eliminate stubborn creases and wrinkles. This feature also allows you to direct a burst of steam to hanging garments.
  • Adjustable Steam
    The adjustable steam settings allow you to select just the right amount of steam required for your ironing needs. Choose regular steam for heavier fabrics or light steam for touch-ups.
  • Anti-Drip System
    The Anti-Drip System provides a water seal inside the iron to protect fabrics from water spotting
  • 3-Way Cleaning System
    • Anti-Calcium System
      An anti-calcium system prevents clogged steam vents by reducing the sediment build-up in the vaporizing chamber of the iron
    • Self Cleaning
      When pressing the auto clean button, the water is fed into the vaporizing chamber in the tank to clean the iron.
    • Power Shot
      A powerful shot of steam is released to take away the scale that build up around the steam holes.

        Comments about Panasonic 360 Quick Multi-Directional Steam/Dry Iron Alumite Soleplate:

        This is the first iron I have purchased since college (25 years ago). I still use that iron today. However, I saw this one and said thought I would go for it. What a difference. Its like going from my Ford Pinto in college to my BMW X5! This thing rocks! Awesome steam, light weight, and fantastic non-stick surface. The the dark color of the water tank was a bad call on the part of the designer but that is the only bad thing about this iron. Its build like a tank too. Therefore, I may never need to buy another one! Note that I have only used it once but I am actually looking forward to firing it up again! Enjoy!

          Comments about Panasonic 360 Quick Multi-Directional Steam/Dry Iron Alumite Soleplate:

          I like this iron the design is very helpful of ironing something with the hard to reach places. Very durable being used in house my and my two son's were replacing irons often. I love the no drip and the ease of use. I rank this one with as one of my favorites. The only plus I would have wanted to add may be a retractable cord.

              I owned a 1940's-era iron that was pointed on both ends. This was a tremendous feature! I was delighted to see that Panasonic had re-discovered this design, and improved upon it. This is a GREAT iron with every 'bell and whistle' that you would expect.

              Excellent BUT

              By 

              from Cleveland, OH, USA

              Pros

              • Convenient
              • Durable
              • Exceeded expectations
              • Good value for the money

              Cons

              • Difficult to use

              Best Uses

                Comments about Panasonic 360 Quick Multi-Directional Steam/Dry Iron Alumite Soleplate:

                This is a wonderful iron. And I bought it because I could always trust the Panasonic name. The iron has a great flow of steam. Gets out wrinkles I didn't even know were there and leaves the clothes with a crisp look. HOWEVER.... the person who designed this iron probably never had to use an iron in their life. Because of the purple color it is impossible to see the water level when filling the iron. It sounds like a little thing, but it is so annoying. I have taken to keeping a little flashlight next to my ironing board so I can shine it at the iron and see the water inside. If it wasn't for this problem I would have given it a 5-start rating.

                Comments about Panasonic 360 Quick Multi-Directional Steam/Dry Iron Alumite Soleplate:

                I was looking for an household use iron with a little more wattage and great steam for pressing large table cloths on a regular basis. I went to Consumer Reports, I'm a long-time member, this iron was on their recommended list. I read all the reviews and decided to give it a try. I'm very happy with my purchase.
