Rated 1 out of 5 by Tweetiepie Worst iron I've ever had
This iron has a water tank that is tricky to put back if you take it off to fill it. If you get it wrong it starts to leak really badly. It's not a fault as such just very poor design. I solved this by leaving it in situ and refilling the tank using a bottle of water but when the calc clean runs you have to remove it to empty the chamber. It is extremely noisy too. I have had this for 3 + years and it was so expensive I couldn't really afford to replace it. Recently it has not been auto calc cleaning and started to blow streaky, dirty discharge through the steam holes marking whatever is being ironed. I have been using a cloth as a barrier to stop the marks. Today it is not generating any steam at all so I think it has packed up. Maybe it's blocked with calcium there is no way to tell or to fix it. I feel glad in one way even though I could do without the expense of finding another iron. I won't be buying Phillips again. Horrible experience.

Brilliant iron definately recommend this product. It's the best iron I have ever bought. It's a little on the pricy side but brilliant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by helynw Heavy and noisy but v effective
This iron does a great job and far supersedes my old normal iron. I do have a few complaints in that it is very noisy especially when the water is drawn through the iron and it is very heavy. Another annoyance is the rubbery trim which seems to attract dust that sticks to it. The steam button is very light which is great. The removable plate is a nice idea. Its very effective at ironing. The self clean feature is brilliant and works really well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by spikey737 Fantastic features
The auto calc facility is wonderful no more worring and getting brown stains on your ironing it automtically tells you when it needs descaling and it takes minutes
Ironing is a breeze even hard to iron items like jeans
The ownly downside is the size it is rather bulky to store but
the way it makes ironing a breeze more than makes up for it
definately recommend it

Rated 5 out of 5 by spikey737 Hate Ironing this is the product for you
Although the whole product is quite weighty once it is on the ironing board the iron itself is very light.
Easy to fill water tank and the anti calc really works.
Extra steam button a great add on speeds through ironing with ease
Nice toucd to be able to store it away immediately after use.
One complaint the power lead is really not long enough
Would definately reccomend this product

Dream to use - never been happier in front of the ironing board. Had three steam machines before this is the best of them all.
