Jiffy Steamer Celebrates 70 years of Success!

John Simrell with first Jiffy Steamer, 1940
Happy 70th Birthday Jiffy Steamer!  Jiffy® Steamer traces its roots back to 1940. Gone with the Wind was the movie and Frank Sinatra, the Voice. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was preparing to run for a third term. Most everyone of that era wore a hat. Stretching, shaping and blocking your fedora over a steaming kettle was common. This is where the idea was born - a better way to steam hats "back into shape in a jiffy."  The company was organized and the Jiffy® Steamer Model J-1 was patented.  John Bailey Simrell, founder of Jiffy Steamer Company, was a pioneer in the steaming industry.  He is pictured here with the first Jiffy Steamer.  Those with Jiffy® Steamer knew the invention was good for more than steaming hats, so a hose attachment and steam head were added. The new Jiffy® Steamer offered a revolutionary solution to an age-old problem of the clothing industry...removing wrinkles efficiently. Our company suffered a great loss when “Mr. John” left us almost two years ago, but the family tradition carries on.   Today, three generations are involved in this closely-held company. Jiffy® Steamer Company, LLC is known around the globe (over 45 foreign markets) and is backed by over 1,000 dealers in the United States alone. The dozens of Jiffy® Steamer models can be found almost everywhere-from the commercial garment trade, to residential markets, in the pages of high-end mail order catalogs, in businesses that cater to the travel industry as well as in other specialty markets. The history of the Jiffy® Steamer is filled with the promise and desire to harness the power and magic of steam.  Help us celebrate our 70th year of tradition, quality and service.
