Love it, would not go back to a normal iron again
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Pricier than a normal iron but Really easy to use & ironing does not take as long because no need to wait for temperature change. So cost is saved on electricity.

Glides beautifully, very quiet
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Philips GC9600Positives - I paid £200 which is double the price of the 2 other steam generators I’ve owned, both of them were other brands. The first one I owned blew up spectacularly, the 2nd was noisy, it made a constant pumping sound which was annoying and not powerful enough so I thought I’d push the boat out and order a more expensive one to see if they are worth paying more for. I am not disappointed. It’s easy to use. The iron itself is less bulky than other brands I’ve used which is great because it’s easier to handle. The iron is quite pointed which is good for ironing around buttons etc. 1.8 litre removable tank which reduces the amount of times I need to refill. The iron glides over the clothes like a hovercraft! Really impressive. It has some wizardry technology which means you don’t have to alter the temperature of the iron, nothing burns, you can also leave the iron face down on the ironing board without fear of it burning - I was dubious so I put a white cloth on the board and rested it on that while repositioning clothes on the board, it never burnt the cloth, goodness knows how it works but it does! The iron can be locked into the base unit which is a nice safety feature. Steam boost gives continuous steam which is handy for vertical ironing and also a turbo steam button for stubborn creases, although the steam is powerful that you probably won’t need the turbo. It makes a pumping sound for a minute when it’s first switched on, and every 5 minutes or so during ironing it makes a pumping sound but that only lasts for a couple of seconds. Other than that it’s extremely quiet. The steam button is instant, no waiting for the steam to come out. Also, when you release the steam button the steam stops instantly which is much safer than the other 2 brands I’ve owned.Negatives - the cord storage isn’t brilliant but it’s adequate. The footprint of the iron is quite large and it doesn’t fit on my steam generator ironing board, but bigger steam generator ironing boards are available.I always tend to put my s

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.

Perfect iron
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

 This replaced a Bosch iron. That unfortunately went wrong after 6 months. I am over the moon with this iron. Very easy to use and much quieter than my last one.If you want constant steam a double tap on the steam button and it continues on it own. If you want a stronger steam press and hold the button on the base.Temperature has not been and issue and adjusts to all the clothes that I’ve ironed.Personally I highly recommend this iron.

Quality steam generating iron
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

This is a very good steam generating iron. First impressions were how nice it was in appearance. It is very elegant looking, much moreso than my old Tefal steam generator iron. The removable water tank makes filling it with water so easy (unlike my old Tefal). The iron is ready to use in 2 minutes. A beeping sound let's you know that it's ready to use. The iron works incredibly well with a good even distribution of steam that makes short work of ironing. With the iron being very light weight, it is easy to maneuver. The only negative about performance is that I find water leaks from the iron during the first minute of use. Recently I've tried using the iron on a board with no clothing due a short while to try and avoid getting water on clothing. The length of power lead and steam iron lead is good. There are handy storage compartments for both too, which again my Tefal did not have. Overall I'm very pleased with the iron and would recommend.

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.
