SoftCare iron with honeycomb soleplate 

Exclusive to Miele
The benefits of the Miele honeycomb drum and EasyFold ironing table are now being used on the steam ironing system. With the patented honeycomb soleplate*, the steam is distributed differently than with conventional irons: lightning-fast through the small channels between the honeycombs, across the entire soleplate. The steam film produced allows the SoftCare iron to glide effortlessly and gently, yet effectively over the laundry.
