Rated 5 out of 5 by Earthmother just as nice as my old one.
I bought this philips iron to replace an approx 7 -8 yr old model. It is almost the same, except this one is slightly more powerful.
My old machine still works well, It has just been retired because the sole plate was loose. A bolt had sheared and could not be replaced. It did teach my children how to iron and was dropped, so our fault not philips
I love using this iron, I have mine permanently set on a low temp steam, and just iron. It makes quick work or everything from silk to linen including jeans. You don't need their more expensive model!
I like the fact that you don't require filters. I clean my descaler approx twice a year. I also use normal tap water. This means you only have one cost, the purchase price.
It is pricey but when the lifespan of the iron is factored in, it costs less per year than a value model, and is so much quicker to use
8 years ago I wrote a review on my old model. The only fault I found then is still present. It is hard to view the water levels when replenishing the water container, and the cord storage is still flimsy. However, I will still buy this model when I require a new one in approx 8 years time!

Had it for years... love it and am very sad it seems to be coming to the end of its life... I will be seriously saving up for a new one!

I've had this iron a number of years probably since it first come out, so reliable and great for getting out creases in clothes. I'd definately recommend this product.

this is the first SteamGenrator we have bought and have been very impressed by its performance. It is far easier to use and quicker to iron than conventional Irons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Claraloft Ease of use
I never thought I would enjoy ironing so much, this steam generator really speeds up ironing time, and is so easy to use.
I would definitely reccomend this to anyone who is thinking of buying a steam generator, I have tried other makes, but Philips perform better by far.
