    Smart Technology pre-sets optimal temperature and steam

    The Smart Protect FV4970 Steam Iron uses Smart Technology to provide the ideal combination of temperature and steam. Since you don't need to worry about which settings to use, you can get on with the ironing with less hassle.

    You can choose an Eco setting to save energy, cutting energy use by 20% to save yourself money on your household bills.

    Auto-off switch off

    To keep you safe while ironing, the Smart Protect Iron features an Auto-off function which automatically turns the iron off if it is left unattended. If left on its heel, the iron will switch off after eight minutes. Alternatively, if the iron is left on the soleplate or on its side, it will automatically switch off after five minutes.

    Durilium soleplate

    With its Durilium Technology soleplate, the FV4970 Steam Iron allows you to glide over fabrics for fast and effortless ironing. Offering impressive scratch resistance when dealing with hard areas such as zippers, the iron helps to take the hassle out of ironing.

    Its precision tip makes it easier to iron around buttons, meaning that you can complete the ironing in less time.

    Steam output to ease crease removal

    The Smart Protect FV4970 produces a continuous steam output of up to 40 g/min, helping to ease crease removal. When required, it also delivers a shot of steam up to 150 g/min, ideal for removing stubborn creases or to refresh your clothes with vertical steaming.

    Keep your steam iron in perfect working order with a descaling solution, or why not brighten up your chores with an ironing board cover from our range?
