Stainless Steel Sole Plate

laurastar-lift-ironA sole plate is considered a very important part of an iron box. The iron-shaped head of the Laurastar Lift weighs 2lbs 3 ounces. Thanks to-its professional iron that is equipped with a 3D-active and brushed aluminum soleplate, steam is evenly diffused, allowing you to get rid of creases in-a single movement. There is an extra protective soleplate to use with delicate garments, A heat resistant resting pad for the ironing board and an attachable cord holder which screws onto the ironing board’s edge. This helps keep the steam cord in place when using with an ironing board.

Auto Shut Off Function

Like many other brands, Laurastar offers an auto-stop feature. This is a function which automatically cuts off power following a period of in-activity. For this particular appliance model, power gets automatically cut off after the iron is left sitting on-its base for 10 minutes. This is for increased safety & energy saving.

Water Filter Cartridge

laurastar-lift-steam-iron-in-useLaurastar Lift’s integrated anti-scale filter cartridge is designed by the company’s Swiss engineers. It allows one to add water as-you iron thereby filtering tap water before it’s used for ironing. The filter helps prevent limescale which can clog steam vents. By preventing limescale, the Laurastar Lift filter helps prolongs the life of your iron. And by filtering salts, the filter cartridge helps improve steam quality. The cartridge is also anti-corrosive, preventing damage to the boiler components. It should be replaced once the red light on your LIFT begins to flash.

Backlit Water Reservoir

For big steaming/ironing projects, the water reservoir can be refilled during use. The system features a 4 2/3-cup water tank with a replaceable filter system and so, standard tap water can be used. All you have to do is fill the tank after you have put-in the anti scale filter cartridge. Laurastar Lift Platinum removable water reservoir can hold up-to 1.1L. The backlit water-tank also lets you to-check the remaining level of water at all times. For increased convenience, the vertical steaming function of the tank allows you-to bring the finishing-touch to your hanging fabric.

This unit weighs a little over 12lbs and features a handle for easy-carrying. Its base also has clips to wind the electrical cord for storage as well as drainage access for long-term storage.laurastar-lift-iron-holder

Design

The Laurastar Lift’s of a totally-different design as compared to most of the other steam generators: it stands upright and is surprisingly-compact with the electric cord retracting automatically. For all its semi industrial stance it is a very handsome-looking unit. Laurastar Lift Pinky Pop is available in Pinky Pop color.

Portability

The easy portability is also another huge plus point once it comes to doing the vertical stuff, such as a suit or shirt on a hanger or even curtains which need a bit of a touch-up. Compact & light, Laurastar Lift Ultimate Black is the first steam-generator featuring a handle which allows you to take it everywhere, whether it’s the ironing board or the clothes hanger. It’s as effective-for a final-touch on a hanging fabric as for-ironing a shirt on the ironing board itself.
