This is a novel alternative to conventional electric irons posing risk of burn injuries. Inspired by push buttons,
Pushiron is designed as such to uncover the hotplate when pressing the big, red button.
Pushiron can free you from danger as it enhances safety measures. This particularly allows use in homes with young children. Pushiron is installed with readily accessible button that can be immediately pressed once exposed to danger.
With a red button, one can simply control the temperature and the hotplate accordingly; turning the button clockwise immediately heats the ‘Carbon heater’. When not in use, the button will be automatically pushed to hide the unprotected hotplate in the cover.
