What is the temperature of an iron?

The temperature of the sole plate of an electric iron depends on the setting of the number of "dots".

  1. Three dots or hot iron. Maximum sole plate temperature of 200 °C.
  2. Two dots or iron at moderate temperature. Maximum sole plate temperature of 150 °C.
  3. One dot or iron at low temperature. Maximum sole plate temperature of 110 °C.
Nevertheless the accuracy of the sole temperature in relation to the iron setting is the responsibility of the iron manufacturer.
