I've been lucky enough to own one of these for some time now and I wouldn't be without it. ~ there are several reasons why i bought it this particular iron - i suffer from a bad back and the process of ironing did not help especially as my husband and 2 daughters live in heavyweight jeans i worked in a charity shop for some time and my main job was to steam all the clothes so i was introduced to vertical ironing i hate ironing and wanted an appliance which would make the job easier and less tedious. i've bought other appliances from philips and have always been pleased with their products ~ i paid ...

I bought this iron 3 months ago to replace an old steam generator which had given up working. It was expensive to purchase, but having used a steam generator previously I knew how good they were, and Phillips is a brand you can trust. Anyway the box was delivered and it was time to clear a huge backlog of ironing. This is a big piece of kit, I have a large ironing board with a large tray for the iron which is lucky. Anyway, plugged it in and filled up the water tank using the jug provided. Firstly really easy to fill and the tank is large & takes a big amount of water. Just lift lid and pour in (my old generator had to be switched off & release the ... Read the complete review

Got this iron just over a week ago, I'm not one for ironing, have never had much luck with my last iron and seemed to put more creases in clothes than I got out of them. Used this iron for the first time yesterday and it was so easy to use, I did a whole load of my children's clothing and was amazed at how lovely it looked, even denim was easy to iron, just had to go over things once. The base is quite bulky so needs to be put on a big enough surface to ensure safety, the iron is easy to hold and you can press the steam button easily when you need the steam. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who does not like ironing (or who is ... Read the complete review

Brilliant bit of kit - so far it has performed faultlessly and has made ironing much easier. As the previous reviewer said it is especially good on things like denim - also linen etc. The steam generator gets up to pressure quite quickly - about 1 minute I would guess, and you can fill it up easily and it doesn't need filling often. The only minor criticism is that the clip on the side which is meant to hold the cable for storage is far too flimsy and falls off easily. We are much less happy with the Vileda ironing board we bought at the same time. The tray for holding the steam generator is only just strong enough - it springs up and down a bit. Also the ...

like alot of mums of 3 children i always dreaded the daily ironing, until i bought this iron, it truely is amazing, my ironing time is now halfed, just one sweep over the garment and it is done, usually you go ocer it 3-4 times to get rid of the creases. i actually enjoy doing the ironing now, and would you believe this, my fiance marc argues with me over who does the ironing because he loves the new iron that much too. my mum brought a bed sheet around last week that she used to use for the guest bed room in her house but the creases would not come out so she couldnt use it, when i told her about the steam iron she brought the sheet around and was amazed, ...
