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!

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.

I'd been sending my shirts out because I like the quality of the dry-cleaned look. Shocked at how rapidly dry-cleaning reduced the life of my shirts, my expectation of the S550 was a device that would produce dry-clean quality pressing in a fraction of the time of pressing with a hand-held steam iron. Short version of things is that even as I became proficient at using the S550, it was still taking me 7-minutes to press a shirt completely; same as a hand-held (but better quality results), but still too long for me. I already had an upright garment steamer; what I didn't like about it was the poor results on cuffs, collars and the button-hole strips. So I now use the S550 for pressing cuffs, collars and the button-hole strips and the upright steamer for the rest of the shirt; this way, I can complete a shirt in 3 - 4 minutes. To be fair, upon closer look, dry clean shops use one press for the large shirt panels, a separate press for sleeves and collars and often hand-press the yolks/shoulders. Putting aside my failed expectations of the S550, as the machine alone goes, it appears to be of high-quality for a consumer-grade steam press. Specifically: • it heats up to 400° in about 20 minutes • Delivers well-distributed steam • The digital panel is easy to use What could be better: • The steamer plate (top) only opens 45° making it difficult to handle a garment without burning your hand. I wish it opened 90°. • Also because of this, it makes positioning the garment very difficult. This is why it takes so long to press a shirt. Would I recommend this press? It depends on your needs. In hind-sight, just for pressing cuffs, sleeves, and button-hole strips I would still buy a steam press, but I would buy the smallest, cheapest one I could find.
Thank you very much! Excellent service!!!

I WAS INTERESTED IN AN ELNA PRESS, BUT IT WASN'T AVAILABLE TO BUY THRU THE INTERNET. YOUR SALES MANAGER RECOMMENDED THE EMPRESSA AND I AM THROUGHLY DELIGHTED WITH IT. THANK YOU FOR THE QUICK RESPONSE. I WILL CERTAINLY CONTINUE TO USE YOUR COMPANY.
