The Professional Division of Miele has announced the launch of its Professional PIB 100 steam ironing system. :Designed with ease and convenience at its core, the PIB 100,” says the company, “is the ideal ironing solution for time-poor hospitality or care businesses that require a quality laundry finish and a fast turnaround, without taking up too much time or resources.”
Comprising a compact combination of iron, steam generator, and ironing table, the PIB 100 has been designed specifically for commercial use. With a capacity of 4.5 litres, it provides at least three hours of uninterrupted ironing before refill.
It features precise and efficient steam technology, producing a thin film of steam unique to Miele, to glide effortlessly over laundry. Its four-bar steam pressure and 100g per minute delivery leaves a crease-free finish on even the thickest of materials.
The PIB 100 was delivered to long-standing Miele customer, care group Anchor Hanover, for trial and feedback before the official launch.
Joanne Linley, head housekeeper at Anchor Hanover’s Oulton Manor site, manages the day-to-day cleaning, laundry and rotas, and uses the iron for residents’ clothing. She commented; “The PIB 100 is brilliant. It’s strong and sturdy whilst being incredibly light. Even the smaller features, like the clip to hold the wire out of the way, make it so easy to use. It’s miles better than the ironer we were using before and we get through the ironing so much quicker. Unlike our previous model, it doesn’t require a specific heat setting for the steam to work efficiently; with the PIB 100 the steam is powerful even on a low heat and the iron glides up and down garments very easily.”
The PIB 100’s large ComfortZone ironing table increases efficiency with less repositioning required, while its honeycomb soleplate makes it ideal for more delicate items such as resident/guest garments.
The lightweight unit is supplied on low-noise wheels, so not to disturb residents or guests, and can be folded or unfolded quickly in two simple movements via its patented 1-2-Lift system.
The PIB 100 also features an integrated display, providing the user with machine status, descaling intervals and water levels. Its automatic rinse function removes mineral residue for the steam generator, meaning only minimum maintenance is required from busy staff.
Simon Venni, UK&I sales manager at the Professional Division of Miele, commented, “The PIB 100 is the perfect ironing solution for businesses that need to provide laundry care and ironing on a daily basis, secondary to their key business function. “Using Miele innovation, we’re been able to bring together the practicality of a compact domestic appliance with all the benefits of a powerful, fully featured commercial ironer. Its innovative steam technology and ease of use makes putting a quality finish to laundry quick and easy, enabling busy staff to spend more time focusing on their key tasks.”
