Rated 2 out of 5 by FAB101 Expensive with flaws
The good points:
- it does iron the clothes well
- it's expensive
- mine lasted 2 years if that before it stopped producing steam
- it often leaks hot water
When it works, the clothes are ironed nicely. Sadly for an expensive iron to break so quickly and to often leak water is very disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ChrisB0 Easy to use but not much good at ironing shirts
This iron is based on the principle that with lots of steam you need less heat to remove creases. So it's set to iron at a low temperature, so low that it won't scorch even delicate fabrics. You have no control over that temperature. In my experience it works on thicker fabrics, such as denim, that absorb the steam and smooth easily as a result. But most of my ironing is of shirts for office work and on these the steam passes straight through. I need high temperatures and less steam. Since I can't control the temperature and since the steam is either on or off, the iron is pretty useless for me. Very disappointing, it's going back to Philips. Possibly a good buy if you iron lots of thick fabrics, a waste of money if your ironing is mainly office shirts.

I have always been put off buying a steam generated iron due the sheer size but i can honestly say that i wish i had years ago. The ironing of a shirt was effortless and i got through twice as much as i usually would, in the time it took. I love it. Recommended by me 100%

Perfect for those which lazy and really hate, hate and hate to take part in ironing session, who is want to cut off their ironing times and whose has a big pile of clothes need to take care of during weekend. It is really help and perfect. I will say it, you will fall in love with the art of ironing and thanks with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katerina Very very very much recommended
So far it's my best investment in 2013. Ironing is not torture anymore. This iron is very easy to use, it's not heavy as a normal iron and the most important - IT SAVES MY TIME!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tracey42 Wow!! Didn't believe until I tried it !!
This iron is fab!! Cuts through creases like a knife through butter , was a bit sceptical at reviews at first but I'm so glad I bought this so nice not having to worry about changing the temperature control and to go from ironing linen to delicates straight away is great.
I can even iron over my sons rubberised printed t shirts with no sticking or smudging!! .
I can't stop telling my friends and family how good this iron is you will not be disappointed if you buy this .
I will not go back to a normal steam iron again .
Thank you Phillips

Rated 5 out of 5 by Christine24 Effortless
Ironing is effortless and so much quicker than before. The lack of having to wait for temperature change between garments is brilliant and the soleplate is great too.Overall a five star product.
Only downside was having to replace the ironing board for a mesh type to enable the steam to penetrate.
