I’m sure you don’t know what this is. Go ahead and prove me wrong (if you can)

In the 15th century, a charcoal iron was developed and first used. The requirement for garments to have a sleek appearance was what led to their creation. The earliest irons were crafted out of various metals (cast iron or iron). These irons were made out of a single body with a lid that could be opened and closed by sliding it along an axle that was linked to the back of the device.

As a result of being placed in coals, they have been able to effectively transmit the heat required for ironing. There was a wooden handle attached to the top of the lid, and its purpose was to protect the ironing hand from getting burned.

In Bulgaria, people continued to use these types of irons until the 1950s and 1960s, when electric irons started to become more commonplace.
Electric irons are believed to have been invented sometime between the years 1890 and 1894, but the exact year of their introduction to the market is uncertain.
Between 5 and 10 kg can be attributed to the weight of the charcoal iron.
