efficacy of pants pressers?

I always press my pants because they're pure cotton. And because they
were properly tailored to measure, so pressing them makes them last
longer, too.

I'm intruiged by the pants-presser appliances I've seen (for example,
at Hammacher Schlemmer).

Do these things really work well?

Can't honestly comment - I'm allergic to ironing. Why does pressing
prolong the life of the garment?

My father's third ex-wife's new husband-like-person gets all of his
suits bespoke in London. He swears by his Corby 3300 (or a model number
like that). I've seen it work. It is great, he puts them in the press,
pushes a button, and gets perfectly pressed trousers X minutes later. (I
think the 3300 has the variable-timing cycles, one of their models has
only one cycle)

I intend to get one as soon as I have a house. They're only about $100
on eBay and what a time saver! (of course right now I don't press my
trousers at all, but I do want to look nicer at work someday).

The boyfriends stepbrother has a corby and he works in the city in London.
You can't tell the difference between them being pressed "properly" and from
being in the corby!  He did my suit trousers while I was there last and it
made a hell of a difference to them!  I actually didn't look scruffy!

If you take a bit of care you can also press tops in them.  I often use one
in a hotel when I am working away from home.   I would like one at home but
not sure how much power they use - they are switched on for quite some time
for one item.

Go shove your head up a dead bear's arse.

You're welcome to starch and press your pants first.
