We consider The Reliable Corporation the experts on steam, based on our positive experience with the Steamboy Pro. We eagerly awaited the launch of the new Velocity 200IR iron and the Dash 100GH which met our high expectations – and then some!
The Velocity 200IR brings the efficient, effective results of a professional-grade iron into your own home. Reliable proves again the master of steam, delivering garment results that astonish, making ironing not feel like a chore!
This remarkable iron features four power settings, ideal for ironing the various fabric types that occupy our wardrobes. The iron heats up quickly and slides smoothly over garments for an easy glide with no water spitting. We love that the iron beeps to let us know when it is finished heating up and primed for use.
Best of all, with its patented, two-heating-elements design, the Velocity 200IR pre-heats the water before it reaches the heated soleplate. This guarantees continuous steam even at low temperatures, so delicate fabric like wool can be ironed safely. My previous iron ruined both a silk top and its soleplate by overheating on the delicate garment.
The iron features sensor touch technology, intelligently detecting touch when a hand is in contact with the handle. The sensor stops the release of steam immediately after the hand is removed. This ensures smart power consumption as well as less water consumption. The steam function switches back on automatically when we resume hand contact with the handle. However, if no steam selection has been made, the sensor will not release any steam, which along with the 8 minute auto shut-off prove handy safety features.
Heating up in just 30 seconds, it offers full control steam release perfect for small and large jobs. The 360 degree swivel handle and light weight of the product makes it very easy to maneuver. The water tank is easy to remove and refill, and the steam control valve proves easy to control.
The handle stays cool while the device heats up, offering the user the utmost in control and safety. It comes equipped with two fabric care accessories – one to freshen fabric fibers and one to help tackle lint and pet hair.
