Rated 5 out of 5 by CaptainRon So good I bought another
I had this iron for just over 5 years and it transformed the choir of ironing, but unfortunately after 5+ years of sterling work it started to smoke followed by a flash and so it was time for safety reasons to look for a replacement and I had no hesitation in going for the latest model of this iron from Phillips lets hope it is as good as the one it replaced.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ironman2865 Needs permanent de-calc. Spits debris all over the ironing.
Nice design, slightly heavier than conventional iron.
Initially did a great job of ironing, with plenty of steam.
The iron is approx 1 year old now, and needs de-calc almost every week.

sprays dirty water and breaks in warranty period. Philips don't support, very expensive iron and doesn't work as good as others.

I have had two. The first one stopped working after 14 months and the motor blew up on the second one after 23 months. Customer support have not been helpful at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gordon617 It has an ineffective start-up
I bought this product to replace an ageing Philips model from years ago.
It has an irritating start-up characteristic which continues to this day. Having been switched on for over 10 minutes the steam cycle refuses to start. Until now I simply had to wait while operating the trigger and I have often returned the old model to service. In the last few days I think I have discovered a workaround by, after 10 minutes, simply switching it off and then on again. The steam is then available. The claim of 2 minutes certainly does not apply to my product.
Once the steam arrives it does what the advertising blurb says.

I will never go back to the standard iron again. My 3 kids arrive home on a Friday night from weekly boarding school and hit me with their dirty washing, it used to take me all afternoon to do their ironing, now it is done in under 2 hours. I find I iron everything because its so fast and does a great job, no longer need to put the denim in the freezer to get the creases out. Its so good you almost always only have to iron one side of a garment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Valerie Finally my other half is the one doing the ironing - voluntarily :)
When I first tried this steam generator I got really excited by the fact that i did not have to adjust a dial as you normally would for other irons, to accomodate for different fabrics.
I gained trust in its optimal temeperature feature, when I left the iron on my silk scarf for five minutes and it did not burn.
Another great advantage is how fast I manage to iron my shirts with great results. Moreover, it is easy to use, the steam function is amazing as it makes it easy to glide through fabrics. The helpful lock on the iron allows you to carry the iron easily.
However, the main point is that my partner got so excited by this technology that he is not letting me iron his shirts and even doing mine, thats what I call success :)
