Abnormal noise
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

 Had this product for a few days now. It is a good Iron however the abnormal noise it produces is enough to want to return it. I am in the process of speaking to Philips and am waiting for a reply in regards to the abnormal noise it produces. If they say this is normal I will replace the product immediately. No iron should make this noise with this price tag ! Shame as if it did not produce this noise then I would be happy with it and give it full marks. Something is not quite right with this product. Please watch my video until the end.

None sticking

You get what you pay for, and this steam generator is the best I have ever had. It replaced a cheaper working item. Best move I ever made, no more sticking on any fabric I have used it on. First Class.

Extremely disappointing - not worth the price
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Less than 8 months after purchasing this iron the steam is all but non existent. Phillips customer care process for repair (not replacement!) is convoluted, time consuming and places the burden firmly on the consumer. Refuse to provide like for like replacement during repair period. Sigh. Wish I’d known this before shelling out £££ for this product.

A superb iron which performs faultlessly
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I never thought I’d pay this much for an iron but I’m so glad that I did-I have to iron a lot of fabric for quilting apart from normal laundry. This iron is absolutely faultless. It irons every kind of fabric superbly. I notice that normal cotton sheets are so smooth that they seem almost polished-and I thought my previous iron had done a pretty good job anyway. It delivers really powerful steam consistently throughout, and the fact that the iron itself is so light means that anyone with mobility issues might find it less tiring. This really is a first rate product.

Best iron

This is the best iron I even owned. It's my second purchase, the first one I bought in 2017 and it stopped working.It makes a very easy task ironing.

Love this iron. Had a tefal before and this is so much better. Turbo steam is a big bonus too. Much cheaper than other supplies and delivery via Royal Mail was okay but still not Amazon Prime speed and reliability, so if you need this urgently you will need to shop elsewhere. Would definitely recommend.

If you are thinking is it worth it, in my opinion, yes
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Why have I never had one before. My ironing takes half the time. The only drawback is that occasionally if I am wearing my specs, and using a lot of steam my specs steam up but nothing to moan about

Great equipment for professional finish, excellent safety feature, but needs space for storage.
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Brilliant for all fabrics and easy to use, it glides over all garments and the tip is great for tricky details when dressmaking. Switches off after 10 minutes of inactivity so it is ideal if you are forgetful at unplugging the iron after use. I would recommend this if you are a dressmaker, or have seriously lots of ironing to do, as it is expensive. However, if you haven’t the space for storing when not in use, it is rather a large piece of equipment.

Best iron ever
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Best iron we’ve ever had. No temperature control as it works it out automatically depending on the material - I didn’t really believe it but it does work. It’s pure wizardry!!

Great product
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Great iron for when you have a lot of ironing to do.Takes two mins to warm up but once there ironing is quick and easy.Cotton sheets that can be a real pain when left dry and scrunched up done in no time.Has a 'turbo' boost for those few nasty jobs.Also eco mode great on synthetic/mixed fabrics.Base unit is heavy to carry but once in place the iron itself is light enough to use without being so light you have to push down to remove the creases.Overall excellent.Our last Phillips iron worked for +8 years and needed one small hose replaced.Cost me all of £5 in parts and 1hr of cursing taking it apart and screwing it back together.
