I see that this product provides 100 lbs of pressure. Does that mean it has an air suction foot control that helps adhere the shirt to the pressing pad? Kinda like the ones in a dry cleaner business.

The press is just the right size for the space I have to put it in. The press gets hot in a reasonable amount of time. However, the press is poor by design. The front side base is so short that any amount of pressure applied to the handle will cause the press to tip over. The upper plate and lower plates touch only along the back edge. You can see daylight between the plates starting at 1 1/2 inches from the back. A great deal of weight must be applied in order to get the front edge of the plates to touch. This is ONLY possible when the back of the base is anchored by a strap, otherwise the press tips over. This product should be recalled for design flaws in safety. Definitely NOT worth the money. I have had to anchor the back of the base with a strap in order to make this product useful.Read More
Very disappointed. I tried to press a pair a pants and produict did not perform to expectations. Press unevenly. I would have been quicker using the iron. I had this product a few years ago and did an excellent job. I was very disappointed!Read More
The product is good, but the owners manual is written by a Chinese person that does not have good command of the English language which makes it pretty difficult to understand. You just have to wing it to figure how to operate the iron.Read More

Best Materials for Cabinets
After deciding on the purpose and room for your new cabinet, it's time to think about material. As with all furniture, you will want to select a cabinet material depending on what you plan to use your cabinet for, as well as your personal taste. Take a look below to learn about the best materials for cabinets. Wood: The majority of cabinets produced are created with hard wood. Wood cabinets can be found in both traditional and contemporary designs. If you are hoping for durability in addition to design, no cabinet looks better and lasts longer than one manufactured using a solid wood. Cherry cabinets offer a sense of classic luxury while holding up to years of use. Oak cabinets conjure up the feel of subtle country beauty, and maple cabinets can look bright, modern and chic. Metal: Metal cabinets are terrific for those looking for a modern touch in their homes; most metal cabinets have a very forward-looking aesthetic, so they are perfect for a contemporary home. Metal cabinets are also great for home offices. Obviously, metal offers great durability, but it is vulnerable to dings and dents. Keep in mind that most metal cabinets have sharp corners, making them slightly less suitable for homes with kids running around. Glass: If you have something you feel like showing off, nothing is better for display purposes than a glass cabinet. These cabinets are certainly more fragile than those made from other materials, but they offer something other cabinets can't: transparency. Many glass cabinets are manufactured with built-in lighting systems to exhibit whatever you choose to place in them. Because of their show-off quality, glass cabinets are perfect for places you expect guests, such as the dining room and living room. Particle board: If you are shopping for a cabinet on a tight budget, looking into particle board cabinets is worthwhile. Particle board is a relatively new material produced by pressing wood particles together, which is then bound with synthetic resin. Furniture created with particle board is almost always the least expensive option and also the lightest, but you will sacrifice some durability. If you plan to move often, a particle board cabinet could be an ideal option. View All Furniture Back to Guides Directory View All Furniture
