Miele B 890 E Rotary Iron: The Ultimate Laundry Tool

Architectural Digest Home Design Show 2009

If you're anything like me, you never look forward to ironing. I imagine I could take great pleasure in the chore if I only had the resources (money and space) for the ridiculously awesome Miele Rotary Iron. As an owner of a Miele Pisces Canister Vacuum I know that this is quite possibly the best iron money can buy. And if you don't care about an over-the-top device to help you with your laundry, you should at least check out the amusing press photos...

The Miele Rotary Iron is the center of family life!

The Miele B 890 E is designed to use while seated and it is operated with a foot pedal. In addition to regular ironing tasks (shirts and slacks), the large, open-ended roller makes ironing larger items like bed linens, draperies and tablecloths much easier.

Though large, this iron was designed for home use and can be plugged into any 120-volt outlet. I was surprised to learn that this iron folds down for storage and features wheels for easy mobility.

The best surprise? Miele makes an optional Laundry Stand for some of their washer and dryer models. The stand is sized to store a vacuum or the Rotary Iron.

The Miele Rotary Iron is $2,199 from Amazon. Would you give it a spin? There are even more press photos on the Miele site!
