3.1 Initial use
1.	Remove all packaging materials,
labels and protective foil and
dispose of them according to the
applicable legal regulations.
2.	Clean the outer parts of the
appliance as described in the
section “Cleaning and care“.
3.	Place the appliance on an even,
stable, dry and non-slip surface.
4.	Place the iron onto the storage base
(10).
C
During first use, a slight
dour may occur as a
result of manufacturing
residues being burnt
off. This is harmless
and will only last for a
short time. Ensure for
sufficient ventilation.
A
WARNING: Never im-
merse the steam iron-
ing station in water or
any other liquid. Do not
fill in the steam ironing
station with vinegar,
descaling agents,
starch, perfume or
ironing aids.
C
When ironing for the
first time, use an old,
clean cloth so that
manufacturing residues
can be removed from
the soleplate (9).
3.2 Saving energy
This product has an ECO steam
generation setting.
By using this setting, you can save
40% energy in comparison to the
maximum steam generation setting
with normal usage (Tested according
to EN 60311+A1 clause 11).
Many linen types can be ironed well
with ECO steam setting.
To save energy:
•
• You should use the appropriate
heat setting. If you don’t know the
appropriate heat setting, start from
the lowest heat setting and increase
it until linen can be ironed well.
•
• Your product can generate enough
steam in ECO mode to iron many
linen types. We suggest you to start
using your product with ECO setting.
If you don’t know the appropriate
steam setting, start from the lowest
steam setting and increase it until
linen can be ironed well.
•
• For better ironing, try using the
steam with pulse actions.
3	 Preparation
Page: 15
16 / 45 EN Steam Iron Station / User Manual
3.3 Tips for ironing
•
• Prior to ironing, always check the
garment label to ensure the correct
temperature is set on the iron.
•
• Since the iron heats up much
quicker than it cools down, synthetic
textiles, silk or similar fabrics should
be ironed using lower temperature
settings first.
•
• If the garment is made of combined
types of fabric, always begin with the
lowest temperature setting first.
•
• Silk and other textiles that tend to
shine should be ironed inside out.
Velvet and other types of fabric that
shine should be ironed with very little
pressure and only in one direction.
Always keep moving the iron while
ironing.
•
• Do not use the steam function when
ironing colored silk. This could
cause stains.
•
• Garments made of 100% pure wool
can be ironed using steam. Set
the temperature control dial (12)
preferably to the MAX setting and
lay a dry towel between the garment
and the iron.
•
• Ironing wool garments can cause
them to ‘shine’. It is therefore
recommended to iron such garments
inside out.
A
WARNING: Never iron
on metal parts, such as
zippers, rivets, or metal
buttons as they could
damage the soleplate
(9). Always iron around
these metal parts.
3.4 Storage
If you will not be using the steam iron
for a long period of time, please store
it away carefully.
•
• Make sure that the iron is
disconnected from the power supply
and completely dry when storing it
away.
•
• Empty the water tank (8).
•
• Open the water drainage screw (23)
and let the remaining water drain
out of the iron. Screw in the water
drainage screw (23) again and
tighten it.
•
• To store away the steam ironing
station, wind the steam hose (2) and
the power cable (7) around the cable
storage holder (6) and secure them
with the clamping bracket.
•
• Please try to store the steam iron
and the attachments in their original
packaging.
•
• Store it in a cool, dry place.
•
• Make sure the appliance is always
kept out of the reach of children.
