Various  hand  held  devices  have  been  invented  and produced  as  far  back  as  the  1st  century  B.C  to  smoothen  fabrics. Over  the  years,  irons  have  come  in  different  shapes,  sizes  and principle  of  operation.  Since  the  invention  of  electricity,  electric irons  have  dominated  the  iron  industry.  In  developing  countries, Erratic  and  epileptic  power  supply  owing  to  the  inability  of public  power  supply  utilities  to  meet  the  demand  of  the  populace has  necessitates  the  need  for  an  alternate  or  emergency  type  of pressing  iron.  The  objective  of  the  design  centers  at  overcoming the  shortcomings  associated  with  other  types  of  existing  pressing iron  and  to  be  a  reliable  type  of  pressing  iron.  In  order  to  achieve the  objectives,  the  energy  source  for  producing  the  heat  required to  press  various  materials  considered  in  this  study  is  a  butane gas.  Which  is  a  cooking  gas  and  it  is  generally  available.  The main  design  was  carried  out  with  a  low  cost  stainless  steel  for  the fabrication  of  the  chambers  and  aluminum  was  used  to  fabricate the  base  of  the  pressing  iron.  Testing  was  carried  out  on  various materials  such  as  nylon,  cotton,  silk  etc  and  the  temperature  for pressing  those  materials  were  recorded.
