    Easy to use, no messing about with different temperature settings, large water tank so no having to refill. The only negative for me is the power cord is a little on the short side.

    Sails across the times seamlessly! Heats up in seconds, holds lots of water which is great. Makes ironing half the time. Win win.

    Having gone through quite a few “normal” irons. Bit the bullet and ordered this bad boy! It does not disappoint! Cord lengths are fantastic and takes the chore out of ironing! Massive water storage to save trips to the tap! Very impressed

    Bought this to replace a very similar one, also made by Phillips which finally gave up the ghost after 10 years of constant use. It was the steam function that became unreliable but it had been dropped a couple of times and the casing was cracked, so it went to the re-cycling centre.
    This one is the same colour as the old one but is quite a bit smaller overall, so it’s a neater unit. The downside of this is that it doesn’t now have space to have a retractable electric cord, within the body. But that is a minor issue. My wife is delighted with it. Happily, she doesn’t allow me near it, as she is a perfectionist when it comes to ironing and I’m not. One feature it has is automatic temperature control so there is no heating dial on it. Don’t ask me how that works but it seems to. I went for a Phillips again as the old one gave such reliable service, hopefully, this will prove similar. The price was also spot on at 100 a supposed reduction on list price of 50%. Other brands seemed to be much more expensive. Anyway, highly recommended.

    Lightweight, easy to use. No temperature to set. Only fault is iron can’t be set on its heel has to be placed back in the base unit when adjusting clothing on iron board

    Great iron, this is my second, got this as the previous broke down after 4 years, got that repaired via the Phillips repair service but also purchased this one in pink as it’s cheap/good value due to the colour . This iron is a pleasure to use.

    Purchased this after my other steam generator died. It is easy to use no faffing around with dials. Don’t keep finger on the steam trigger or you will get wet streaks, other than that it does what it’s supposed to no matter what fabric you are ironing.

    Exactly what I wanted, lightweight, easy to use, efficient and a quality product. Hoping it lasts as long as it’s predecessor which I had for many many years.

    I can’t believe how good this iron is. After using a traditional iron the change is amazing. Cuts hours of my ironing

    This is my first compact iron, and I have to say it’s just worth the xtra cost if you do a lot of ironing, no more need to fill with water and change settings this is a time saver, and no need for it to stand up as you can just leave it flat on the board while getting garments ready, it quickly cools when button isn’t pressed, it also fits snug into the ridge on the ironing board so this is another bonus, you don’t have to have the whole iron on a board, if your next to a unit or table it can just sit in there which frees up the whole space on the board, if I do put it in the board I use some anti rug slip material underneath it so it doesn’t budge that’s the only pros is that the bottom could have been a rubber base so it doesn’t move, I always keep a bottle handy for filling as I would want to visit the taps with it, I have ironed on full heat then instantly done a synthetic fabric and the quickness it cools is fab.

    Love the auto control facility. This is a great buy. So easy to use and with the added advantage of an ECO Button to save on steam usage. Thoroughly recommend this product.

    I got this to replace my old version of the same iron that I’d had for years & had stopped steaming. This one is lighter & more efficie

    A quality machine, easy to use. The big test was ironing our duvet covers and I was very pleased with the results
    I like the way the steam cord has a place within the base of the water tank to be stored when not in use, making the whole thing compact and easy to handle.

    Makes ironing so much easier. Steam really works well, easy to use. Self cleaning but most importantly the sensor works really well so no waiting for temperature changes.

    So this replaced a pretty heavy duty Tefal steam generator that just went pop one day after maybe 15 years.
    Steam power is about the same.
    The cord management is ok but basic. Being lightweight is good on the ironing hand but makes it more easy to pull off the board.
    On the whole better for what I now want.
    One thing I’ve still got to get used to is the overlap in steam generation after the button is let go.
    Only the one one heat setting but it seems to do everything OK.

    Was little worried as this iron was very expensive but I’m
    So pleased as it’s be the best 1 I bought…
    It doesn’t have a spray but the steam
    Is better it cuts out when not in use…
    It is big but it’s worth the price

    Glides easily through all ironing, no faffing with getting the right setting….like magic it never burns.

    I’ve had this model for a few years. When It was carelessly dropped on concrete, I immediately replaced it with exactly the same one.

    I do a lot of ironing for others so this is ideal with the good size water tank and easy descaling.
