Toshiba readying steam iron with built-in pump

Darren Murph

It's been quite awhile since a steam iron caught our eye, but Toshiba is reportedly readying such a device that makes the entire process a bit easier. Hailed as "the world's first steam iron with a built-in pump," the forthcoming device can spray "up to 2.1 times as much steam as earlier models, has 30-percent more strength at permeating cloth," and touts a surface that's coated in enamel for easier gliding. Apparently, the automatic nature of the steaming allows for more even ironing results, and while we aren't exactly sure if all these niceties are worth the ¥16,000 ($138) pricetag, those who do can snap one up in around three weeks.
