PerfectCare Elite is Philips’ best and most efficient steam generator iron, with ultra-light iron for ultimate convenience. No temperature settings required with no burns – guaranteed.
No Burns – Guaranteed
Thanks to OptimalTEMP technology, we guarantee this iron will never cause burns to any ironable fabric. You can even leave it resting face down on your clothes or ironing board. No burns, no shine. Guaranteed.
No Temperature Setting Needed
Iron everything from jeans to silk without adjusting the temperature. Thanks to OptimalTEMP, no dial or settings are needed. So there’s no more pre-sorting the laundry, or waiting for the iron to heat up and cool down. You’re ready for any fabric, anytime.
Strong 135g/min steam tackles even the thickest fabrics with ease. This extra steam is perfect for vertical steaming to refresh clothes and curtains.
The iron is minimal weight, reducing wrist sprain. It also has our most advanced soleplate – T-ionicGlide – for fast and effortless gliding.
Easy Fill 1.8L Detachable Water Tank
A 1.8-litre transparent tank gives you up to 2 hours of continuous use. When the water tank is empty, you will be reminded by the indicator light and you can refill easily at any time under the tap, through the large filling door.
Ready in 2 Minutes
Press the ‘On’ button at the back of the steam generator base, steam will be ready to use in two minutes.
Easy De-Calc Plus for Lasting Performance
Regular descaling protects your iron, extends its lifetime, and ensures the best steam performance. Our exclusive Easy De-Calc Plus system collects limescale continuously with an indicator light and audio signal to tell you when it needs emptying. Simply remove the plug and let the water and scale particles flow out.
ECO mode allows you to save energy without compromising your ironing results. ECO mode uses a reduced amount of steam, but still irons all garments.

Very good iron.
Criticisms: cable is difficult to stow. Handle creaks a bit in use making it feel a little cheap. A tad on the expensive size for what it is.
The iron is perfect recommended by a friend but it really does iron well.
Pushed the boat out and spent more than I had intended but worth it. “It doesn’t take the chore out of ironing but makes it easier.” Quote from my wife. I’ve never used it myself as I’m hopeless and can’t be trusted running a bath so mixing water, electricity and heat in one vessel would Defford be a hospital job. I’m the type of bloke who would answer the iron if the phone rang.
I haven’t used this yet but my wife (no gender sensitive stereotyping intended) says it is the best Steam iron she has used and glides through the clothes. I will use the iron soon as my serviceman background dictates. It looks good, feels good, and very ligh
The easy with which you iron clothes. Not heavy and flattens the toughest of materials like jeans. Am loving ironing bedsheets again. Ironing is now a dodo
I had a Braun one before, to be fair it was 100 so couldn’t expect much of it
I would say this makes my ironing go faster with less effect
My only con is the water runs out too fast in the tank which didn’t with

Excellent, lightweight, effective steam iron. Water in tank lasts longer than I expected. Can power through ironing. Need a surface near ironing board to place the base. Need to rethink positioning items on board before you press steam jet, to avoid burning yourself.
So far super happy. Make ironing not a pain anymore
Let’s see how much will las
I’ve had a Philips Perfect Care before so I knew what to expect. The iron performs perfectly well but while heating water to make steam (about every 30 seconds), the unit rattles at an unacceptable level. This is usually an expected rumble sound but on this one, a rattle too!
We bought this to replace a Bosch one that stopped working properly less than a year on. Had a Morphy Richards version before then that lasted about 6 years. This is bar by the easiest iron to use. Blasts through the ironing really quickly. Steam boost works really well. The iron itself is really lightweight, By far the best iron I’ve ever had – worth the extra investment if you have a family and constantly have ironing to do.
Having received this iron decided to give it a real test over three hours
1: Easy to fill
2: noise whilst heating the water is expected
3: iron glides over shirts in a breeze whether thick cotton or lighter fabrics.
4: No more dropping work shirts off at the cleaners.
Great product and with the large discount was able to purchase at 199
I can’t do without this !! I had to buy another one to replace my ancient one. This really is perfect for everything. I whizz through the ironing with this, no need to organise the ironing. Start at the top and work through it can go from denim to silk next it really is a boon. I’m pedantic about everything and I iron everything except socks ha ha. It’s a must have from me.
Love this iron. No need to worry about turning to correct temperature it dies it for you. Easy to fill with water and 2 settings for steam
A brilliant Iron which conducts the calc cleans on its own and simply tells you when to empty the container. Provides plenty steam to get out creases. It does take a few minutes to heat up however once it’s going – No issues. Been using mine for a year now and still not a single issue!
All my friends think I’m mad spending so much on an iron but I love ironing so I must be mad! My last irons were tefal but after a while they just give up so thought I would change the make what can I say I absolutely love this iron it’s light weight it does the job in half the time. I got my partner to have a go then he wouldn’t give it back I didn’t tell him how much it was until he finished all the ironing
Love that the iron has no temperature control and I can move between delicates and cotton without adjusting. A very powerful iron that melts away creases.
Had my old Philips Steam Generator for 12 years. Bought another make 18 months ago. True it was cheaper.
But didn’t meet my expectations. I wished I had paid the extra money and bought the Philips. Struggled for 18 months until I could get a Philips in Sale. Happy Bunny love everything about it including area to to push cors out of the way when not in use.
my daughter in law uses an iron every day and wanted this was for easy use, so far she is very pleased with it, thought it was slightly over priced
So pleased with this iron, it’s a pleasure to use, and so lightweight. Gets the job done in half the time.
Used my daughter’s and liked it so much I bought one. It’s a big piece of kit, so you need a big cupboard space. Mine sits on the work surface in my utility area. The base unit is quite heavy. My daughter keeps hers on the tray at the end of her ironing board, but my tray isn’t big enough. I put the unit on the work surface in front of my ironing board and can also plug it in there. The cord from the base is long enough for the iron to be used all over the ironing board. The water chamber is filled with ordinary tap water. We live in a hard water area so I am interested to see how the descaling system works. I haven’t had the iron long enough to find out yet. The lead from the base to the iron carries both water and power so there is a constant supply of heat and steam if desired. I use the button under the handle to dispense steam if needed. The iron is really light to use, which I appreciate as my hand get weaker. The iron automatically adjusts the heat to the fabric, which is great and the generous water tank means few refills. The overall quality of the ironing finish is impressive. Overall, this is lightweight and easy in use, giving a good result. Just be aware you need storage space and it isn’t as straightforward to set up as a conventional iron. I am pleased to have mine
The product arrived well packaged.
The water tank is a little smaller than the previous Morphy Richard steam generator iron we had – but lasted through several garments. The iron has an automated temperature control meaning you can leave the iron on the board safely between items – a useful facility. The irons steam output is very good – handles thin and thick garments easily. There is a holding clip that can be applied when the iron is finished with allowing you to lift the whole unit with the handle of the attached iron. The overall weight is quite reasonable to lift.
Its too early to comment on the descaling process – but so far very pleased with the performance of the iron.
This item has malfunctioned again .Need to Return. Please send return paperwork
Was unsure if I should rate it a four or a five. In auto mode it does tend to generate a little too much steam on occasion, so your clothes look like you have sprayed water on them
