Philips GC2042/40 EasySpeed Steam Iron

Product information

The EasySpeed iron speeds up your ironing thanks to: triple precision tip, even heat distribution across the soleplate and continuous steam. A continuous steam output of up to 35g/min gives you the perfect amount of steam to efficiently remove all creases. Applying the steam boost will release a steam shot up to 100g to remove even the toughest creases.

The tip of this Philips iron is precise in 3 ways: it has a pointed tip, button groove and a sleek nose design. The triple precision tip enables you to reach even the most tricky areas, e.g. around buttons or between pleats.

What’s more, this Philips GC2042/40 has a vertical steam function, for crease removal in hanging fabrics and a ceramic soleplate provides better gliding performance and is easy to clean. A spray function produces a fine mist that evenly moistens the fabric, making it easier to iron out creases and a Drip-Stop system lets you iron delicate fabrics at low temperatures without having to worry about stains from water droplets. Thanks to a calc clean slider, you can remove scale easily from your iron.

Q & As

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by EXCELLENT IRON I HATE IRONING especially cotton shirts and duvet covers but this iron is great (fast and efficient). I was going to buy an expensive steam generator but thought I'd try this inexpensive one first. It heats up fast & irons the creases out in no time . Would definitely recommend it 01 December 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ironing - back to normal After a very brief dalliance with a non-stick sole plate, I went back to a brand I know and bought this steam iron. It's not heavy to use, has good steam output and useful pointed end to access the difficult places at collar and between buttons. And the smoothly gliding ceramic sole plate is a delight! The one quibble I have is the occasional leakage of water, but am still checking whether this is me or a design fault. 12 May 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by It drips Disappointed !! This iron drips, when first switched on. My clothes are soaked ! Will be returning. 10 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Philips Easy Speed Iron This iron is very light to hold and irons out deep creases easily without having to keep going over the same spots when ironing. The steam released is also plentiful and even. This is the best iron I have purchased over the past two decades. 25 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smashing iron Really good iron, but the cord is far too short, had to buy an extension lead. Other than that really good value! 18 February 2014
