With this powerful high-pressure steam system, clothes are easily pressed and wrinkle free.
Panasonic has today launched two new long-lasting steam generators, for ultimate ease and efficiency when ironing clothes. Say goodbye to wrinkles and burn marks – just press a button and the steam does the rest, with faultless results from ironing thick material to the most heat-sensitive fabrics.
What is a steam generator and how does it work? Unlike regular irons where the water evaporates easily on the soleplate, Panasonic’s steam generators release a continuous boost of steam that is maintained by an internal boiler. Both models have a large 1.8L water tank capacity, so it does not have to be refilled constantly, allowing you to effectively get through a larger amount of clothing in one sitting.
Ginger Yu, Product Marketing Manager – Appliances, Panasonic Australia, said: “Our aim is always to make things easier for our customers. With our high-pressure steam generators, we manage to achieve just that by helping busy people save time and energy. The steam is evenly distributed throughout the soleplate and delivers a perfect finish. No need to fear the dreaded disaster of leaving a burn mark on your clothes! Since these are pure steam generators, whether it’s delicate like silk or tough like denim, it’ll never leave a burn mark on any type of fabric.”
Panasonic Steam Generators
NI-GT500NSJ – Black and gold with 2400W power input and 720g steam boost: $629
NI- GT200ASJ – Black and navy with 2400W power input and 600g steam boost: $439
To maintain steam power, both models are equipped with anti-calc measures to prevent buildup of impurities from water, which can develop inside the iron and lead to stains or poor steam output. This feature ensures a smooth flow of water and avoids any blockage disrupting the path of the steam. The NI-GT500 model only requires water inside the boiler to be poured outonce a year and has anti-calc technology which automatically prevents calc from accumulating inside. This technology extends the iron’s steam lifetime, for a guaranteed durable and reliable product that lasts. With an optimal soleplate temperature of 135°C, there is no need to set the temperature yourself, however it does come with an option to increase the temperature to 155°C if required.
The NI-GT200 model only requires the water to be emptied once every three weeks and its inner structure is smartly designed with one-step anti-calc to prevent any clogging. It also features a handy temperature dial so that customers can easily adjust the heat based on what fabric they’re ironing.
Both models have a Calc-Indicator, which is a lamp that will notify when it is time to empty the steam generator.
