Toshiba Home Appliance is selling two upgraded irons with steam functions enhanced by 1.4 times to 0.7 mm. The irons can be used to smooth creases of garments on hangers and remove odors more easily. By modifying the steam-generation mechanism, the iron can be used from a distance of 1.3 meters, 2.2 times further than conventional irons.
The new model is a modified version of the cordless LACOO series. The steam water tank uses antimicrobial glass, which lessens water scale deposits. The model TA-FVX83 (photo) features a garment steamer function to remove creases on hanging clothes with boron coating on the ironing surface, for better gliding on fabrics.
Open price, but expected to be around 16,000 yen. The retail price of the streamlined model TA-FVX73is expected to be about 12,000 yen.© Japan Today
