The search for a foolproof "self-heating flat iron" was under way by the midth century. In a patent was issued in the US for a new, improved charcoal-burning iron which would make "practicable the permanent heating of smoothing irons". By there were gas irons available in several countries, with rubber tubing to connect them to gas light fittings or to canisters, and then there were numerous designs for irons with internal burners and little piggyback tanks of liquid fuel.
Any inventor who had ever been near the room where ironing was done knew it was a hot, tiring job. Meanwhile she must keep the irons spotlessly clean with no trace of ash to soil the clean linen.
As we now know, the electric iron solved these problems better than any other self-heating apparatus, while charcoal-filled irons remain popular today in many less-electrified parts of the world. By the early s more than one person had considered powering ironing with electricity, but Henry W.
Seely of New York was the first inventor to make this idea workable and patent it too. Seely developed a design ingot a patent inand then worked with his partner, Dyer, to patent a different "electric flat iron" in Seely and Dyer There Is No Greater Love - McCoy Tyner Trio - Inception doubts about having the iron continuously plugged in, as "connecting [it] permanently with the circuit [ They invented a sort of "cordless" iron, on a stand heated by electricity.
Lower picture left This echoed developments in using gas for ironing, where gas-fed iron-heaters or ironing-stoves were serious rivals to irons on lengths of rubber tubing. However, this French museum expert is sceptical about such claims. By the early 20th century enthusiasm was building for the new electric smoothing irons: clean, powerful, adjustable, and labour-saving.
They didn't make you roasting hot, and they didn't carry soot or ash. As the advertisement says, they were better than three flat irons.
And yet, there were still plenty of traditionalists who stuck with flat irons aka sad irons well into the middle of the 20th century, even when they lived in a home with a good electricity supply. The Hotpoint irondesigned by Earl H. Richardson of Ontario, California, was launched inand was the first electric iron to have any commercial success. By the s enough people had homes wired for electricity for electric clothes irons to spread fast across the US.
They Send Me Your Pillow - John Lee Hooker - Boom Boom also selling well in some parts of Europe. By The Waage ad above right for an iron with hot, medium, and low settings, appeared in the s. By the s the iron's only rival for "most popular electrical home appliance" was the radio. In 79 per cent of American households had an electric iron, according to the Monthly Labor Review for December Note that most of the early irons have the electric cord pointing upward towards a ceiling light fitting.
Biographical information on Henry W. Seely is scarce, but we know he was connected with people who are better-known figures in American history. In he kept only one third of the rights in his now his famous electric flat-iron patent and assigned the other two thirds to Samuel Insull and Richard N. Dyer, Thomas Edison's patent attorney. He was a witness to many of Edison's patents, including his "incandescing electric lamp".
For a couple of years in the early s the H. Seely signature appeared on more than patents, and he went on acting as an occasional witness up to Henry W. But it was Dyer who appeared in court, not Seely. Did he have any idea how useful and popular "his" invention might become? The patent suggests he and Dyer had their doubts about the practicality of an iron that had to be hooked up to an electric circuit. Was he right to doubt his own version of the electric iron?
How much, if anything, did Seely's invention have to do with Richardson's Hotpoint iron which was successfully manufactured and marketed unlike Seely's? Warning: If you see a "biography" claiming Seely was born in Richville, KY, this is almost certainly based on an ehow page, now removed, that I believe started as a "joke".
As far as I know there is no Richville, KYand no evidence that Seely had 5 children, some with unusual names like Gintal. Dates and other details are probably bogus too. Unfortunately they have been picked up on various webpages, including another ehow page. Please get in touch if you know more about Seely's life. I've done some preliminary research and hope to put together some more biographical info later this year.

The votes were as follows: irons, Early electric irons Electrical self-heating flat-irons, electric sad-irons The search for a foolproof "self-heating flat iron" was under way by the midth century. Johanna Wisthaler, - see left-hand column They didn't make you roasting hot, and they didn't carry soot or ash. I, Henry W. The object of my invention is to utilize electric currents derived from any suitable source of electric energy for the purpose of heating flat-irons, fluting-irons, and other similar utensils.
To accomplish this object I place within the iron and close to its face a resistance, preferably of carbon, and of such size and shape that it will heat the face of the irons sufficiently and equally.
This resistance has terminals, by means of which it may be connected Münchener Bach-Chor, Münchener Bach-Orchester, Karl Richter - Ehre Sei Gott In Der Höhe (Festliche W an electric circuit, preferably a multiple arc circuit of an electric lighting system Written in More about vintage electric irons Note that most of the early irons have the electric cord pointing upward towards a ceiling light fitting.
