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.
