Rated 2 out of 5 by Ironingmum Fantastic when it works!
Bought this iron and it was fantastic at first. However now it produces no steam. You can hear water entering the boiler but nothing comes out of the iron and eventually the water leaks onto the floor. Very expensive for the use I have had out if it and therefore I am unable to recommend as it is not fit for purpose.
Yes I have regularly cleaned it as per the instructions!

Once you have used this iron there is no going back. It's like watching colour tv after a lifetime of black and white. With a family of 4 I had a lot of ironing to do but this has virtually halved with this iron. I now have it about 2 years and it is working perfectly. I will definitely buy another when this one decides to retire.

My wife & I have used 2 of the Philips GC8460/02 steam generator irons over the past 3 weeks. Initially when the iron was delivered we had it replaced after 3 days because we actually thought it must have been faulty but the replacement iron is just the same. We use the iron only once a week to iron 12 pillow cases, 5 flat sheets & 5 douvet covers from our holiday home. The iron has to be set to max temperature & steam before there is any quantity of steam then the steam only lasts for about 30/45 seconds at any decent level after which the steam pressure just drops. We are very disapointed in an appliance from a quality company. We rate the iron as average because it is better than our normal upright standing simple iron.
