Rotary presser

Priscilla | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

Hello, I would appreciate any knowledge you may have about rotary presses.  I have a large collection of linens and like to do home decorating projects.  It is so difficult pressing yards of fabric – get to the end, just to have the first part wrinkled again!  I have been researching and found two brands available in the US.  Miele and Pfaff.  Do any of you have experience or recommendations? 

I’d be using my linens more often if I could press them 🙂

Regards- Priscilla

    Hi I press drapery alot and the huge table I made is of most importance.I covered 2 hollow core doors with cotton batting and muslin. I love my Rowenta iron too. Love my iron, did I just say that ? LOL Susan

    Here's one solution.  Ironrite ironers were made until about 1958.  I bought one on eBay for $150 and $100 shipping (they are very heavy so buy one near you),  There is also a website which has covers, instruction books and lubricants.  You probably want to lubricate your before you turn it on.  Mine works perfectly.  I use tablecloths every day now.

    First, I must admit that I know very little about rotary irons. But I do recommend that you very thoroughly research each of your prospective purchases.

    Having said that, I will suggest that since Miele is in the business of household appliances rather than a sewing machine manufacturer (as is Pfaff), you may be purchasing a sturdier, longer-lasting press with the Miele, one intended for the use you intend. I do have a Miele washer, dryer and vacuum cleaner and can't say enough good things about any of them. They are the best appliances I've ever used, and I've used many. They do what they claim and are energy efficient to boot. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase any Miele product.

      Thanks so much for the comments about Miele.  I didn't know anything about the manufacturer.  You gave me something to think about!

    Martha Stewart was using one on her show earlier this week. The show's website has it listed as a Miele (http://www.miele.com) You can enter in your zip code on their website and find the nearest dealer to test them out. The equipment is quite expensive.
