We are pleased to announce the introduction of our latest Empressa steam press, the S550 with advanced LED display.
The new LED display allows the user to see the exact temperature of the steam press, and the scrolling LED’s let you know that the desired temperature is being reached.
Like its predecessor (S500), the pressing surface on the S550 is a whopping 34” X 11”, over 10 times larger than most hand held irons. Pressing with the S550 can reduce ironing time by up to 70%.
NOTE: Effective immediately, all Reliable S550’s will be shipped with a new all metal mesh pressing plate, instead of wood pressing board. Only Reliable uses an exclusive metal mesh plate for the bottom-pressing surface. We use metal because unlike wood, it will not warp. But most importantly, the steam coming from the head will no longer get trapped in the wood press plate. This reduces condensation, and along with an improved one-piece pad cover set with thick felt padding, greatly improves the pressing performance of the S550.
The revolutionary digital S550 will change the way you do your ironing. Imagine pressing your clothes without all the work!
Our ST3A stand comes with both Velcro and a metal bolt (not plastic) to secure either the S330 or the S550 presses to the stand.
The pressing surface on the S550 is over 10 times larger than most hand held irons. Pressing with the S500 can reduce ironing time by up to 70%
For dressmaker’s, you can even use the S550 as a mini-fusing press. Its even heat and quick burst of steam is great for setting fusing on collars cuffs, jacket fronts etc.

Note: Home Ironing Board Presses have 100 pounds pressure between upper iron plate and lower ironing board. Pressure is less at ends of the boards, depending on press width, fabrics and garments.
Clamping mechanisms are in the middle of the press and lose some pressure at the ends You can equalize the pressure using press cloths at one or both ends. We have few complaints in 38 years. It is not a problem on shorter boards like Elna. Miele and Singer rotary presses are best for equal pressure. John.Douthat@AllBrands.com, Owner and Tech.
