Panasonic™ NIW950A 360° Quick™ Multi Directional Steam/Dry Iron. Ceramic iron curved alumite soleplate. Anti-calcium system.

Introducing the Panasonic™ NIW950A 360° Quick™ Multi-Directional Steam/Dry Iron.



Multi-directional ironing is made painless with the Panasonic NI-W950A! Featuring Panasonic's trademarked dual-tipped elliptical soleplate, specially crafted for #1 hardness and smooth ironing. The secret is in the unique Alumite soleplate coating. Alumite is a durable material that is used to make automobile parts. This coating drastically extends the life of the iron soleplate, providing up to 5X better scratch resitance, stain resistance, and a smoother, non-stick glide over the competitors.

The soleplate's expansive surface area is ideal for larger and tougher fabrics, such as curtains and tablecloths. It can also cover tight spots like collars and cuffs—allowing you to finish the job 25% faster. The wide ironing area is 28 cm in direct contrast to virtually all competitors, with only a soleplate of 25 cm. The vented soleplate allows for a powerful burst of steam, the unique self-cleaning mode, and an anti-calcium system for extended performance. Furthermore, the adjustable steam feature allows for more minute calibrations, letting you tweak the steam to perfectly suit your favourite fabrics from high to low, steam to dry.

The Panasonic NI-W950A. A stronger glide. A tougher plate. A tougher machine.

    Powerful 360° Steam

    3-Way Cleaning System:
    Anti-Calcium System
  • An anti-calcium system prevents clogged steam vents by reducing the sediment build-up in the vaporizing chamber of the iron

    Self Cleaning
  • When pressing the auto clean button, the water is fed into the vaporizing chamber in the tank to clean the iron.

    Power Shot
  • A powerful shot of steam is released to take away the scale that build up around the steam holes.
