The rotary ironer came along in the 1920s. A roller pressed the dampened cloth against a hot shoe ironing the cloth flat and dry. Ironrite was considered the premier maker of these machines because of their design and quality. One edition of the owner's manual proclaimed that ironing with the Ironrite was restful and relaxing.
