We use an iron more often that most. Tim irons a quilt before putting it on the frame so you can imagine all the quilt backs he does. The Velocity Iron has made his job easier!
I couldn't express it better than QuiltSource so will copy some of what they say:
The new Digital Velocity V100 is the most advanced stand alone iron in the world. You can now enjoy professional ironing quality and speed with the simplicity of using a traditional iron. With a revolutionary and patented technology, the V100 incorporates an internal heating element and pump system that produces more steam continuously (up to 30g/min) than conventional irons. This guarantees a professional finish to your garments. The Digital Velocity doesn’t produce steam at the soleplate like traditional irons, but generates it inside, in a pre-heating chamber. With this advanced technology, there is no need to have a higher temperature in order to prevent water spitting. To save energy and water, the unique Eco-Intelligent™ system will stop the iron from steaming after 3 seconds of not detecting movement. Ready to iron again? Simply pick up the iron and begin pressing. Much loved by sewers and ironing enthusiasts, Steam Ready™ allows the user to iron continuously without the auto shut-off feature. When activated, the iron will not shut off, unless manually turned off by the user.
At $179 the iron is more than most but there may be a time when you want to invest in something to save you time and effort. Check out http://www.quiltsourcecanada.ca/ for more information.
