    Philips per­fect are Steam Gen­er­a­torThis mod­el is def­i­nite­ly bet­ter then the pre­vi­ous mod­els every­thing is auto mode . Easy to use : I have giv­en its 3 only due to that one when u need to fill it with water it’s a bit fid­dlyAnd sec­ond­ly the iron can not stay up right on its own you have to put it into the Generator.Lightweight: its light when u have no water but when mov­ing it around the house with water it’s not so . Still need to used more but def­i­nite­ly a bet­ter model .

    Sim­ply the bestI’ve had a Per­fect Care iron before and think they are superb. It saves so much time not hav­ing to change the tem­per­a­ture dial the whole time.Also the fact you do not need cartridges.This iron is even bet­ter than the last one which last­ed for eight years! It has a small­er pro­file and takes up so much less space. Both visu­al­ly and physically.I’d also like to point out that, for the first time, I used Ama­zon Mar­ket­place. A fan­tas­tic price and a won­der­ful iron. Min­i­mal cos­met­ic dam­age to the pack­ag­ing and no cos­met­ic dam­age to the iron.

  4. Kin­dle Customer

    Effec­tive, qual­i­ty prod­uctSur­pris­ing­ly light to use. Works well on the tough­est linen and bed­ding. I use dis­tilled water. It does­n’t seem to use as much as my last steam­er but the per­for­mance is excellent.

    leaks water not steamI have pur­chased this t o replace my 10 year old Philips which I loved. It is good look­ing, com­pact and light­weight although its tank takes more water than my old one. So far, so good. First issue is that the pow­er lead comes out on the left side rather than the back and gets in the mid­dle when I am iron­ing large items like shirts and bed sheets. I’ve tried to dou­ble click the steam but­ton and the ‘con­tin­u­ous’ steam last­ed for 3’’. I called ama­zon and they con­nect­ed me with the Philips tech­ni­cal sup­port. They told me that this was not what it was sup­posed to hap­pen and that I should return it. I did so and the replace­ment arrived prompt­ly. I ironed a wash load of t‑shirts and oth­er small items. The con­tin­u­ous steam again was not con­tin­u­ous but I thought I could live with­out it and just press the steam but­ton when I need­ed it. When I tried to iron the cot­ton sheets thought and I need­ed the steam but­ton often, it was just leak­ing water!!! The water was clean as it was the sec­ond time I was using the iron, but in a cou­ple of months it is not going to be that clean. I end­ed up hav­ing to iron the clothes with­out steam and wet­ting them with a spray bot­tle. What a waste of time to pack­age them and send them back. Although the tech­nol­o­gy that does­n’t require set­ting the tem­per­a­ture sounds amaz­ing, I don’t think it deliv­ers a high enough tem­per­a­ture to pro­duce pow­er­ful steam and take the creas­es out of cot­ton. I am amazed that so many oth­er peo­ple can iron with this???

    Per­fect for A ManIve tried ordi­nary type irons and also a Phillips steam press, but this iron is by far the best iron ive ever used.1 ) No con­trols to set for dif­fer­ent tex­tile types.2) Large water tank so dont need to keep refilling.3) Just leave the iron on the iron­ing board when turn­ing any item as it will not burn or scorch the top.What more could a man need! noth­ing to con­fuse, just iron out the wrin­kles, perfect.

    Water Tank not Detach­able & Leaves Floor WetI bought this iron in Sep­tem­ber 2021 so have had plen­ty of time to try it out.Pros:- It is very light­weight.- I love the fact that you do not have to change the tem­per­a­ture when iron­ing dif­fer­ent clothes.- It pro­duces a good amount of steam.- The de-calc sys­tem, which has a sep­a­rate tray, is an excel­lent idea and I real­ly like this as it works very well.Cons:- I hate the fact that the water tank is not detach­able as every time I fill it up, I end up with water every­where and you have to take the whole thing to the sink to emp­ty it.- Unlike my old Phillips (GC9236/02) it leaves far too much water on the floor under my iron­ing board. I expect­ed a few drops as per my pre­vi­ous iron but this one means I have to mop up the water a cou­ple of times whilst ironing.Having had this iron for less than a year, I am seri­ous­ly think­ing about chang­ing it as I real­ly do not like the non-detach­able water tank and the amount of water it leaves on the floor dur­ing iron­ing. There is no way you could do your iron­ing on a car­pet with­out putting a tow­el under­neath your iron­ing board.Would not rec­om­mend for the above reasons.

    Great val­ue for mon­eyBought this to replace a very sim­i­lar one, also made by Phillips which final­ly gave up the ghost after 10 years of con­stant use. It was the steam func­tion that became unre­li­able but it had been dropped a cou­ple of times and the cas­ing was cracked, so it went to the re-cycling centre.This one is the same colour as the old one but is quite a bit small­er over­all, so it’s a neater unit. The down­side of this is that it does­n’t now have space to have a retractable elec­tric cord, with­in the body. But that is a minor issue. My wife is delight­ed with it. Hap­pi­ly, she does­n’t allow me near it, as she is a per­fec­tion­ist when it comes to iron­ing and I’m not. One fea­ture it has is auto­mat­ic tem­per­a­ture con­trol so there is no heat­ing dial on it. Don’t ask me how that works but it seems to. I went for a Phillips again as the old one gave such reli­able ser­vice, hope­ful­ly, this will prove sim­i­lar. The price was also spot on at £100 a sup­posed reduc­tion on list price of 50%. Oth­er brands seemed to be much more expen­sive. Any­way, high­ly recommended.

    My first com­pact ironThis is my first com­pact iron, and I have to say it’s just worth the xtra cost if you do a lot of iron­ing, no more need to fill with water and change set­tings this is a time saver, and no need for it to stand up as you can just leave it flat on the board while get­ting gar­ments ready, it quick­ly cools when but­ton isn’t pressed, it also fits snug into the ridge on the iron­ing board so this is anoth­er bonus, you don’t have to have the whole iron on a board, if your next to a unit or table it can just sit in there which frees up the whole space on the board, if I do put it in the board I use some anti rug slip mate­r­i­al under­neath it so it doesn’t budge that’s the only pros is that the bot­tom could have been a rub­ber base so it doesn’t move, I always keep a bot­tle handy for fill­ing as I would want to vis­it the taps with it, I have ironed on full heat then instant­ly done a syn­thet­ic fab­ric and the quick­ness it cools is fab.

    Iron­ing made easy!A light­weight iron. Glides eas­i­ly over fab­rics. No heat set­ting to keep alter­ing. Have used suc­cess­ful­ly on hang­ing gar­ments too, dis­pens­ing with an iron­ing board, except for the sleeves. Iron­ing so much less of a chore. UPDATE : Have now man­aged to iron sleeves with gar­ment hang­ing. So an all round win­ner! Easy. Quick. Effective.
