Introducing the Miele HM 16-80 Rotary Steam Press
(Editor's note: The B990, and the B990E that it replaces, are both dry presse models otherwise identical to this one. If you want a dry press, feel free to take a look at the Miele B990 instead.)
If so, Miele has the solution.
Treat yourself to professional results and ironing in luxury with the Miele HM 16-80 rotary iron. This easy-to-use appliance utilizes a wide press roller, allowing you to press everything from shirts and pants to bed linens and tablecloths—all with a crisp, professional finish. The electronically-controlled roller speed can be adjusted to suit the type of laundry being pressed, as well as your own individual working speed. This function is easily operated through the use of a foot pedal, allowing you to sit and relax while you iron.
Miele is a German manufacturer of high quality commercial equipment, and is able to enforce the highest standards on its products by manufacturing all of its products in its nine privately-owned factories.

The "How to Use the Rotary Iron" User's Guide
Sit and iron in comfort with the Miele rotary iron. Its versatile operation will enable you to give all your ironing a smart and professional finish. While the rotary iron has design features comparable to much larger, industrial machines, it has specifically been designed for home use. Thanks to its clever fold-away mechanism and wheels, it can be stored in many places.
The wide roller was designed for versatility and easy of ironing. The expanded width allows greater control over efficiency and speed, allowing you to press everything from shirts and pants to bed linens and tablecloths. This unique product gently presses delicate lace or puts razor-sharp creases into pants.
Open-End Roller Design
The open end of the roller is particularly useful for ironing awkwardly shaped items such as shirts and blouses, which can be fitted over the open end without having to be being folded. The open end also allows for easy ironing of very wide items, such as sheets and tablecloths.
Swing out bar for hanging laundry
A simple yet all too absent function of iron presses, the swing out bar is designed to speed up your ironing, allowing for quick and easy manipulation of your clothes. Furthermore, it collapses down with the rest of the machine for easy storage.
Finished work is automatically deposited on the laundry shelf beneath the roller in even, soft folds. The ample space between the shelf and the roller allows for large items to be pressed.
Comfortable Ironing with Extra Leg Room
The Miele rotary iron is very easy to use. By gently pressing the wide foot control bar, the heater plate contacts the roller which begins to rotate. Your hands are free to guide the laundry smoothly and accurately. The roller can be rotated by hand for ease when feeding in laundry.
Foot Pedal Operation
Easy control of the device comes from the touch-sensitive foot pedal, a large bar built across the bottom of the HM 16-80 Rotary Iron for convenient access.
Three Temperature Settings
The temperature range is marked by dots and fabric controls on the ring around the temperature selector. These correspond with the international fabric care symbols for ironing. One dot is for the minimum temperature setting which is perfect for synthetics; two dots for mid-range temperature, ideal for woolens and silks; and, three dots for the highest setting... perfect for linens and cottons.
A glimpse of the machine in operation.
The wide space between the hotplate and the roller makes it very easy to feed in the items being ironed. An automatic finger guard device is a special safety feature. If, during the ironing process, your fingers come too close to the hotplate, a safety switch will stop the roller rotation and lift the heater plate off the roller.
Emergency Release Button
This special safety function kicks if your fingers come too close to the heater plate. This automatically stops the roller rotation and lifts the heater plate off of the roller.
Variable Roller Speed
The roller speed can be adjusted to suit the type of laundry being processed and the individual's working speed.
Fold Away Design and Transportation Wheels
The four rollers allow the rotary iron to be easily moved wherever you need to do your ironing. When folded away, the rotary iron requires minimal floor space; in fact, only a scant 2.4 sq.ft of space is required.
