Orpat Steam Iron – OEI617
Non-Stick Coated Sole Plate
The Orpat OEI-167 has a non-stick sole plate. The non stick nature of the sole plate enables smooth movement. The iron glides over whatever fabric is placed on the ironing board. Factors like the design and the size of the sole plate also influence how smoothly the iron moves.
The thermal fuse of this iron is a safety feature. It stops the iron from working at a certain temperature by switching off the electric circuit. This prevents the iron from overheating and getting damaged.
A rather useful feature of the Orpat OEI-167 is adjustable thermostatic control. The advantage of this feature is that it allows you to choose a temperature setting that complements the fabric that you wish to iron. Select a lower temperature for delicate materials like silk and medium to high temperatures for materials like cotton, linen, denim, etc.
The stress-reliever and twist-reliever properties of the power cord make this iron easy to maneuver. It can be moved in multiple directions and thereby reduces the effort required to iron.
Using an iron that is light in weight ensures that your arm and wrist will not ache, even if you are ironing a full load of laundry that is fresh out of the washing machine. An added advantage of a light iron is that you can manually increase or decrease the amount of pressure applied while ironing, without experiencing any discomfort because of the weight of the product.
