What's the "secret" to getting a clean, crisp finish to your garments?
Professionals know the value of using dry, pressurized steam when ironing. This gets the steam into the fabric faster - your ironing time is cut in half (it's true). Steam is used to soften the fibers, and the weight of the iron shapes the fabric. This is done effortlessly when you have the right tools to do the job. Pressurized steam is the key. Once you've used it, you will never go back to you old iron again.
Find out what garment makers, dry cleaners and tailors have known for years; using pressurized steam transforms ironing from a tiresome chore to an effortless task. Now the same quality steam is available to everyone
With our CSS™ (Continuous Steam System) technology, you'll never have to worry about running out of steam in the middle of ironing again. Simply refill the built-in water tank when the water level is low (or the low water light indicates it's time) and away you go. No more waiting.
The J490A is the first ironing system equipped with an anti-calc warning system. In a few short steps, you can programme the boiler for the hardness of water that you are using (litmus paper is supplied) and the system will automatically tell you when it is time to use the de-scaling powder that is supplied. No more guessing!
