The heat control (which is kept even by a
thermostat) is built into the CHERETON
“Safety Base” instead of in the iron. No more
burns, no shocks for you now. No callouses
either, with the exclusive CHERETON 2-way
handle. And even if you leave it connected,
there is no danger of fire. It's the most sen
sational development in years in an iron ... It’s
the CHERETON IRON for faster, easier iron
ing and the saving in electricity will pay for
the iron. See it demonstrated here.
