Brands of garment care products offer little differentiation in aesthetics and performance, which causes the price of the product to play a pivotal role. However, producers focused only on bringing down the cost would risk compromising the performance and quality of the product, potentially leading to improper heat distribution, poor handle ergonomics, irregular pressure distribution and dangerously exposed hot sole plate. After extensive user study and understanding of task needs, the Stealth Dry Iron is created equipped with carefully designed features to avoid these concerns. Its sole plate has a specialised n arrangement that radiates from the sides of the heating element. These fins ensure superior thermal conduction, thereby achieving uniform heat distribution. The handle of this iron slants towards the back to provide convenient grip without straining the wrist. At the same time, it creates a uniform distribution of pressure while ironing. The sole plate is tapered towards front and with bevelled edges that will ensure smooth gliding even when moving the iron backwards. The narrow tip of sole plate easily navigates the tricky corners of the garment. The Stealth Dry Iron’s overall aesthetic and ergonomic details that makes ironing an effortless, safe and pleasant experience. Furthermore, a safe clearance distance is given between the edge of stealth sole plate and the iron body. This, along with the chamfered sole plate, prevents fingers from touching the hot sole plate. The aesthetics have a unibody look and feel, making it compact, approachable and friendly to use. It was carefully created to fulfil the basic needs of any dry iron user.
