Rated 5 out of 5 by Cat50 This product was very light and easy to use
Phillips asked me to try their new product, having received it for free from them. I was initially a little daunted at the size of the water tank base unit but once I started ironing I realised and was very glad to have the added water capacity. The water tank is very easy to detach and refill and the steam generated from it is exceptional. The iron itself is light and and simple to use and the controls easy to follow. An added benefit was that I managed to cut the ironing time significantly - always a bonus on a Sunday evening!

Having received this free, Philips asked me to review their new product, I was delighted with the iron. It was easy to set up and use, ironing well even without steam.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shirley123 Quick, excellent result on everything I ironed
Philips asked me to review their new product and I received this product for free.
The instructions were clear, concise and easy to follow.
The packaging was easy to open and retrieve the iron and reservoir base.
This is a large piece of equipment and I would recommend using a large ironing board rather than an average household size.
The quick 2 minute is a good feature.I thought holding the button under the handle of the iron might be an issue but it wasn't. There is a lot of steam - I had to open two windows whilst ironing. Also the steam is not silent as advised on the packaging. There is also noise as the water comes through the water hose to the iron. You need to ensure that you put the iron back correctly unto the three magnets on the base. The iron was excellent for ironing shirts, sheets, duvets cover and pillow cases. Also excellent on synthetics. The large water reservoir allows one to do a lot of ironing without needing to refill. Overall impression - quick, excellent result on everything I ironed. The amount of steam produced is a bit disconcerting. I liked the large water reservoir. My current iron is from Philips as was my previous iron.

Rated 4 out of 5 by svtakaki This product is really good
Philips asked me to try their new product and my first impression compared to my previous Philips iron, was that it is heavier and smaller. However, I reduced the time that I used to iron my clothes and especially sheets and duvet cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LizzieM I now enjoy my ironing
Philips asked me to review the GC7705/30 & I received the product for free of charge.
As I didn't read the instructions at first, I only started using the iron & found it not easy to use e.g. I have to keep holding the button to release the steam.
I asked my son to read the instructions & he told me what to do & it became easier to use the iron.
I find it quicker now to do my ironing including ironing my bed sheets, which used to take long with my other iron :)
I am really impressed with the steam generator & I will recommend this product anyone & remind them to read the instructions before using the iron.

Philips asked me to try their new product, the FastCare Pressurised Steam Generator Iron. It came in the post free of charge. As soon as I received the iron, read the instructions and I started ironing in a few minutes. As a person who has always used the general irons, I was a bit sceptical about the workings of steam generators but now I am converted. I really like the fact there are no excessive puffs and no spilling of water on my clothes as I used to get with conventional irons. As a guy that does Sunday evening ironing of work shirts, I really enjoyed the speed at which I was able to complete all my ironing. The iron retains its water really well which I guess is testament to efficient steam generation.
When using the boost button, there is a bit of a sound as the water is drawn, I believe this would have been great if it were a little quieter, however I don’t think this is a big issue especially if you watch the telly while ironing.
I truly recommend this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by PrincessDory Made ironing fun
Philips asked me to try their new product for free and I am so glad I did.
I am not a fan of ironing most of the time, but this steam generator iron made it quick and easy. It powered through all my items of clothing, even jeans to great effect.
The iron even though bulky due to the water tank, its light to use and means less trips back to the kitchen for water.
I would definitely recommend this product to my friends and family.
