Philips Azur Steam iron GC4410/02 130 g steam boost 2400 W
Great Features, easy to use, Let down by design
The iron works well great steam function and smooth.
The only down side is the continuous steam button slider 0-6 when you slide it across to make your selection the writing rubs off because of the pressure of the slider and the slider breaks off after 2 weeks of use. I persevered with the iron as the iron was stuck on continuous steam function when the slider broke but quite happy to continue to use it as the shot of steam was still working, but eventually the shot of steam button will stick.
I would have bought the same iron again since it irons well but since the design has not changed I will purchase a different Philips.

Two or three annoying features
Having used the iron for some weeks now I would like to point out three aspects that I find annoying and that could be improved upon in a new version.
Most annoying is the fact that I find it impossible to see the water level in the iron - the plastic is too dark. Second, the temperature selector is too easy to catch with one's fingertips during use, which means it is too easy to unintentionally change the temp. Finally, the cord is one of those that tangles far, far, far too easily. I thought these had been eliminated.

A really good product
read some reviews and this iron was rated, It has a good wattage, and gets nice and hot- one of the features I was looking for, as i do a lot of sewing. The tip is excellent for steaming those not so easy places. Suprised about the plate; the first iron I have had with this type, and I'm impressed, as I had my doubts. Comfortable to use.
The cord is extra long compared to the majoirty of irons which is brilliant. Easy to use knobs and dails. But most of all I found it it half price absolute outstanding buy!

Effortless ironing at last
Bought to replace an old cordless iron that never seemed to have enough steam to do a good job - this is a revolution. Effortlessly powering through creases and making shirts and things a dream - it really is an excellent piece of kit, holding plenty of water, but having sufficient control to make it versatile. Hugely impressed and would heartily recommend to anyone.

Philips Azur reduces ironing time
This item is excellent at reducing your ironing time as the steam options and steam shots allow heavy duty items to be ironed with ease.

This iron has the best steam, longest cord,smooth glide and holds the most water
I am impressed with this iron. The steam ouput is fantastic either on low heat or high there are three settings. The sole plate glides through the ironing as always turn motif t shirst inside out to iron. It has a spray and a shot of steam but with the steam output you rarely need them. It holds a lot of water so on one hand it saves you going back and forwards to the tap (it uses ordinary tap water) and on the other it starts a bit heavy but not that much. It has a self cleaner to wash away the scale in the holes which is very good it needs no special water and you dont need to use iron water that you buy saving you money. It does not drip heats up quickley and if you forget to turn off the iron it has a built in feature that turns off the iron and blinks a red light
