Extremely disappointing ironI bought a Phillips steam generator iron in September 2018 rather than buying another iron from my previous manufacturer. The iron was well reviewed and smaller than my previous appliance but offered comparable power. However, the iron never got hot enough, and even when depressing the turbo button - which often wouldn't work and just turned the iron off rather than giving it more heat, it still didn't reach the temperature needed to iron cotton sheets satisfactorily. After six weeks of use, the steam began to drop and smear over the ironing. I used deionised water. The descaling light has never illuminated. I telephoned Philips as was told that a repair will take 10 working days but the appliance is not fit for purpose. I was advised to take the iron back to the retailer (Although it is hardly the retailer fault that the appliance is poor!). The lovely people at Curry's refunded my money and I have bought another iron from my previous manufacturer.

HONEST OPINION FOR REVIEWThe best two features of this steam generator in my opinion are the lightness of the iron and having no temperature control to reset when ironing different fabrics.
Would prefer if the water tank was removable as would be easier to handle when emptying out at end of ironing.
Vertical steaming is poor and had to resort to using ironing board.
Feel the product is way over priced.

This product is brilliant. Well worth the moneyFirst time bought a Philips Steam generator iron and I don't think I would want to try any other brand as this one is excellent. Its ready to use in 2mins, makes a sound when ready to use. Auto shut off if you forget to turn it off so no worries if u leave the house wondering whether u turned it off or not. I highly recommend Philips Perfectcare Viva

Great Steam Iron - Quick and EasyThe PerfectCare Viva Steam Iron greatly improved my ironing process. Previously using a similar steam generator iron, I had high expectations which were nearly all met. Guilty of allowing iron piles to build up, I particularly liked the 2L water container, meaning I could complete piles of ironing without having to re-fil and wait for the iron to heat up again. In saying so, I would acknowledge that the iron takes little to no time to become ready and beeps audibly to let you know when it's ready. The one temperature gauge was great - I ironed cotton, denim, silk, wool and linen and all garments ironed with ease, taking no time at all. I really liked the sturdiness of the casings and cable tidiness, when putting away I found it relatively easy to carry the iron and wasn't juggling cables as I often found myself previously.
If hesitations of the product were to be identified, I would suggest that the handle could require a bit more gripping material or texture, but this was only a concern after a few good hours of ironing. The iron is quite a bit noisier than my previous iron, but this was dampened by sitting the iron base on padded material.
I would thoroughly recommend this product.

Absolutely love this Iron!!Was sent to me as a promotional offer so wasn't sure what to expect.
I love the way this iron glides on the fabric. And so far its worked great on all fabrics such such as uniforms,shirts,jeans,trousers,and even very creased kids karate kit which is a thick cotton fabric.
We are a busy family of 6 so i don't tend to iron daily,clothe's just build up for me weekly. I can iron 4 hours straight.
This iron is now saving me time which im loving. No more wasting time sorting the clothes out.
The huge tank just lasts forever which is perfect for me but down fall is as there is no jug to fill up the tank you would have to carry the iron to the sink to fill up. Advance for that is the light weight design.
Another con Having iron face down on the stand does tend to leave drips of water on the floor which can be annoying at times.
Apart from that the design itself is less bulky and light weight and quite compared to the last iron i had.
Most unique thing about the system is the No temperature adjustment needed and the No burning guarantee just makes me soo happy!!
In all I'm super pleased with this awesome steam generator. The look, the feel is just super sleek!!

Excellent ironStraight out the box you can tell this is a quality product. Very well packaged and presented. Out the box, the iron is lightweight, and a decent size. It has a large tank to save you constantly filling the water up. Both the power cable and the cord for the steam are long, longer than any other steam iron like this that I have used, which is a definite plus as it doesn't constantly pull or get tangled up.
The water fill spout is large and angled correctly to fill from a jug, kettle or bottle without spilling any.
The iron itself if quite lightweight, and well designed to be able to hold with ease. When I first got it I spent over an hour using it and my hand and wrist didn't get tired or sore at all. Seems to be smooth when ironing. It gives decent steam generation, enough to get all but the worst creases out in one pass, and stubborn ones in 2 or 3, but at the same time managing not to use all the water in 5 minutes like some others do.
It has a few other little features, none which I would miss if I hadn't seen them, but now I have, I would. A locking clip on the top of the base unit allows you to clip the iron in place, so it won't fall off when you move it, and the steam cable clips round the bottom allow it to be stored without the cables filling the cupboard. It also comes with a descaling pack and a 2 year guarantee.
If I had to pick something wrong, it is the locking clip, I did keep catching it when I was putting the iron on the base, but I'm sure I will get used to it after a few more uses, and, even then, its not that bad.
All in all I would give this iron top marks

Irons out all the creases!I didn’t think I could ever enjoy ironing, but this iron has definitely made it much easier! As a steam generator iron, it is obviously bigger than a traditional iron, but I find it fairly compact for the features it offers. The only problem with the design I feel is that the cord is not retractable – so the it makes storing the cord look quite untidy.
When ironing, it has removed all of the creases. It generates lots of steam and is incredibly easy to move across the fabric. It finds the optimal auto temperature, so you don’t find yourself constantly having to change your iron setting – as you do with some others! As it moves so easily, it also means it doesn’t require much pressure when ironing – so is much more enjoyable to use. It has a very large tank, which has meant that I have been able to tackle my large pile of ironing without the need to go back and refill the tank.
All in all, this iron has a large capacity and is very easy to use. It heats quickly and works well – shortening the time it takes to make the way through the ironing pile. It is definitely a iron that I would recommend to anyone – even those who dread the task!
