    This is the ultimate home ironing system. It's got an boiler tank that compresses the steam and shoots it out of the iron when you push a button. This sucker presses seams flat and irons bodies of shirts effortlessly. The iron stays hot and the temperature is even throughout because of the weight and the fact that it doesn't produce steam like ordinary irons do -- by splashing cold water on the sole or element. Best of all it doesn't spit dirty water, pretty much ever. The only way it has ever shot water for me is if it was used before it was warmed up all the way, and even then it was just for a minute while it cleared the hose.

    They retail for $450. The maker doesn't let anyone sell them for less. Hard to find used.

    I got this one about 4 years ago, maybe a little less. It's been cleaned regularly. Haven't used it too much, just for my own laundry. During the last year it hasn't seen much action -- I lucked into an even bigger iron, if you can believe that. As you can see it's been taken care of and should last a good long time. Rated for "four hours of use a day" for what that's worth. It's serviceable -- replacement parts are available from the manufacturer. It's not the sort of thing you throw away if something ever breaks.

    Anyway it's $275 shipped CONUS. Payment by paypal. Please contact me if you have any questions.
