Safety & Warnings
When using your iron, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:
- Use the iron only for its intended use.
- To protect against a risk of electric shock, do not immerse the iron in water or other liquids.
- The iron should always be turned to '' before plugging or unplugging from an outlet. Never yank the cord to disconnect from an outlet, instead, grasp the plug and pull to disconnect.
- Do not allow the cord to touch hot surfaces. Let the iron cool completely before putting away. Loop cord loosely around iron when storing.
- Always disconnect iron from the electrical outlet when filling with water or emptying and when not in use.
- Do not operate iron with a damaged cord or if the iron has been dropped or damaged. To avoid the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble the iron; contact Kogan.com for support. Incorrect reassembly can cause a risk of electric shock when the iron is used.
- Close supervision is necessary for the appliance being used by or near children. Do not leave iron unattended while connected or on an ironing board.
- Burns can occur from touching hot metal parts, hot water or steam. Use caution when you turn a steam iron upside down - there may be hot water in the reservoir.
- If the malfunction indicator goes on, the iron is not operating.
- To avoid circuit overload, do not operate any other on the same circuit.
- If an extension cord is necessary, a 10-Ampere cord should be used. Cords rated for less amperage may overheat. Care should be taken to arrange the cord so that it cannot be pulled or tripped over.
- Do not let children or untrained persons use the appliance without supervision.
- Never immerse the iron, cable or plug in any liquid.
- Do not leave the hot iron touching fabrics or very inflammable surfaces.
- Do not leave the appliance unnecessarily plugged in. Disconnect the plug from the mains when the appliance is not being used.
- Never touch the appliance with wet or damp hands.
- Do not use the power cord or the appliance in order to pull the plug out of the socket.
- Do not leave the appliance exposed to the weather (rain, sun, etc).
- Do not leave the iron without supervision when it is connected to the power supply.
- Do not fill the reservoir with water before removing the plug from the socket.

A special resin filter inside the water reservoir softens the water and prevents scale build-up in the plate. The resin filter is permanent and does not need replacing.
- Use tap water only. Distilled and demineralised water makes the “Zero-Calc” anti-calc system ineffective by altering its physicochemical characteristics.
- Do not use chemical additives or scented substances.
With the anti-drip system, you can perfectly iron even the most delicate fabrics. Always iron these fabrics at low temperatures. The plate may cool down to the point where no more steam comes out, but rather drops of boiling water may result that can leave marks or stains. In these cases, the anti-drip system automatically activates to prevent vaporisation, so that you can iron the most delicate fabrics without risk of spoiling or staining them.
Automatic Shut Off
- If the iron (connected to the base and powered on) has been left for approximately 30 seconds in the horizontal position, heating will shut off. When heating shuts off, the automatic shut off indicator light (G) will blink.
- If the iron (connected to the base and powered on) has been left for approximately 8 minutes, heating will shut off. When heating shuts off, the automatic shut off indicator light (G) will blink.
- When holding up the iron again, automatic shut off indicator light (G) will stay on. When power indicator light (G) stays on, the iron starts heating again.
- When power indicator light (G) goes out, the iron can be used.
When using the iron for the first time, you may notice a slight emission of smoke and hear some sounds made by the expanding plastics. This is quite normal and it stops after a short time. It is also recommended passing the iron over an ordinary cloth before using it for the first time.
Sort the laundry to be ironed according to the international symbols on the garment label. If this is missing, then sort according to the type of fabric.
|Garment Label||Fabric Type||Thermostat Regulation|
|Silk - wool||••
|Cotton - linen||•••
|Fabric not to be ironed|
Iron garments that require low temperature first. This reduces the waiting times (the iron takes less time to heat up than to cool down) and eliminates the risk of scorching the fabric.
Filling the reservoir
- Check that the plug is disconnected from the socket.
- Move the steam selector (D) to “0” [Fig. 1].
- Open the lid (C).
- Raise the tip of the iron to help the water enter the opening without overflowing.
- Slowly pour the water into the reservoir using the special measurer, taking care not to go over the maximum level (about 280ml) indicated by “MAX” on the reservoir [Fig. 2].
- Close the lid (C).
Selecting The Steam
1. Only by setting a higher temperature, you can use steam ironing function. Example: •• or ••• for normal steam, max for more steam.
2. Ensure there’s enough water in the water tank; put the iron in a vertical position.
3. Set the temperature selector to the required position, must be between steam range •• or •••. [Fig. 3]
4. Connect the iron to the base and insert the plug into the socket:
- When using the iron connected with its base [Fig. 4], make sure to open the base lock switch (I), ensure the base lock button () is in the lock position and heating in a horizontal or vertical position.
- When using the iron separately from the base [Fig. 5], vertically put the iron on the base and wait for heating.
5. When heating indicator light (G) goes out, you can start to use the iron.
- If the iron is connected to the base, you can continue ironing.
- If the iron was used separately, you can use the iron for about 30 seconds after the heating indicator (G) goes out as the iron will begin to cool (there will be a slight difference in time for different users, this variance is normal). You then need to place the iron on the base for heating again. You can continue to use the iron after the heating indicator (G) goes out.
6. Set the steam selector to a required position. [Fig. 1]
Selecting Shot-steam and Steam When Ironing Vertically
Press the shot-steam button (F) to generate a powerful burst of steam that can penetrate the fabrics and smooth the most difficult and tough creases. Wait for at least 2 seconds before pressing again [Fig. 6].
By pressing the shot-steam button at intervals you can also iron vertically (curtains, hung garments, etc.,) [Fig. 7].
Warning: The shot-steam function can only be used at high temperatures. Stop the emission when the plate temperature control light (G) comes on, then start ironing again only after the light has gone off.
To iron without steam, follow the instructions in section “steam ironing”, leaving the steam selector (D) on position "".
Make sure that there is water in the reservoir. Press the spray button (E) slowly (for a dense spray) or quickly (for a vaporised spray) [Fig. 8].
Warning: For delicate fabrics, it’s recommended to moisten the fabric beforehand using the spray function (E) or by putting a damp cloth between the iron and the fabric.
How to Put It Away
- Disconnect the plug of the iron from the socket.
- Empty the reservoir by turning the iron upside down and gently shaking it.
- Leave the iron to cool down completely.
- Roll up the power cord with the rewinder [Fig. 10].
- Always put the iron away in a vertical position.
Advice for Good Ironing
- It’s recommended to use the lowest temperature with fabrics that have unusual finishes (sequins, embroidery, flush, etc.).
- If the fabric is mixed (e.g. 40% cotton 60% synthetics), set the thermostat to the temperature of the fibre requiring the lower temperature.
- If you don’t know the composition of the fabric, determine the suitable temperature by testing on a hidden corner of the garment. Start with a low temperature and increase it gradually until it reaches the ideal temperature.
- Never iron areas with traces of perspiration or other marks; the heat of the plate creates stains on the fabric, making them irremovable.
- The size is more effective if you use a dry iron at a moderate temperature, excess heat scorches it with the risk of forming a yellow mark.
- To avoid making silk, woollen or synthetic garments shiny, iron them inside out.
- To avoid making velvet garments shiny, iron in one direction (following the fibre) and do not press down on the iron.
- Many fabrics are easier to iron if they are not completely dry. For example, silk should always be ironed damp.
Cleaning & Care
Please note: Before cleaning the iron in any way, make sure that the appliance plug is not connected to the socket and is cool to the touch.
- Any deposits, starch residue or size left on the plate can be removed using a damp cloth or a non-abrasive liquid detergent.
- Avoid scratching the plate with steel wool or metallic objects.
- The plastic parts can be cleaned with a damp cloth then wiped over with a dry cloth.
The self-cleaning feature cleans inside the plate, removing impurities. It is recommended to use it every 10-15 days.
- Fill the reservoir up to the maximum level indicated and set the steam selector (D) to ""
- Set the thermostat knob (N) to the maximum temperature and wait for the light (G) to turn off.
- Take out the iron from the base and hold it in a horizontal position.
- Hold the cleanout button (M) setting until all the boiling water, steam and impurities come out [Fig. 9].
- When the plate has cooled down, you can clean it with a damp cloth.
