Rated 3 out of 5 by Hedley88 Cable too short
Iron works beautifully, glide along and if I'm honest one of the best I have used however the cable is way too short and I am going to be taking it back to the retailers for a refund. No where on the packaging does it state the length of the cable.
I don't think it was a marketing decision based on market research but a cost saving exercise to increase markup on the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jen67 Azur Iron Lovely iron
Recently purchased this iron I've used in twice.
Very pleased with this product. The cable needs to be longer by at least a metre. I have a small kitchen . I had to push the ironing board as near the socket as possible then the iron only just goes to the far end of the board.
This is why I gave it 3 stars for Design. After saying that I do love using this iron .

Rated 2 out of 5 by eddie1946 Cable Too Short
I bought this Iron a couple of weeks ago and found it very good apart from cable which is too short. Over 1 metre shorter then my previous Phillips Iron which was 4 years old and similar model. I Emailed Phillips to point out the problem and they wrote this reply
"I am sorry to hear that you are not satisfied with this iron. It was a marketing decision to make the cable shorter, it was based on market research. I would like to confirm that the irons from the GC4000 series have longer cables. According to the Sale of Goods Act the product has to be fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. If you believe the cable is too short to effectively use the product I can advise contacting the retailer. They are obligated to either replace or refund you if the product is not fit for purpose or of the satisfactory quality"
That say's it all, what more can I add

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jude01 This iron is easy to use it glides over the clothes.
Had a Philips iron for many years, my daughter in law went and bought the same one after using mine, it finally gave up just before Xmas so in a panic bought another brand in the sale, big mistake. I have now bought and used the Philips Azur, it glides over the clothes, I like the steam in the tip as this make ironing between buttons easier. At first the steam button under the handle got in the way but I moved my hand down slightly and by the end of ironing I had forgotten it was there. I don't like ironing but this iron certainly makes the job easier.
