the conventional or "low pressure" clothes steamer : directly derived from the professional model, this steamer can find only limited use in a domestic context. In fact, the low pressure steamer is used for smoothing the folds of textiles or clothing that are not suited for traditional ironing: wool, silk, satin, fleece, synthetic, curtains, velvet, etc. The steamer will then be a complementary product to the steam press or iron, because it is not powerful enough to handle thick materials like cotton.
high pressure steamer : This vertical steamer is a new generation appliance that produces steam under pressure, like a steam press : 4 bars or 400KPa (for information: classic steam brush = 1 bar or 100KPa). Because of this, it expels steam much more powerfully and this steam is then able to penetrate the thickest materials. This steamer is equipped with an ergonomic, lightweight iron, specially designed for vertical use. This iron has a special feature, unlike the classic clothes steamer, it is heated, and its temperature is adjustable. The high pressure clothes steamer is designed to offer a modern solution adapted to the latest textiles. It is an alternative to conventional ironing.
