Q & As

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Beware ... This is the second Philips steam generator iron I have owned and, sadly, this one displays all the same faults as its predecessor. Over the last 20 years, I've used several steam generators and there is a problem with all of them in that they all seem to have the tendency to spray or leak grey water on to your clothes. This is to do with the 'de calc' function, where scale builds up in the iron and has to be flushed out. Despite rigorously following instructions as to 'de calcing', the problem re-occurs. This iron is designed to tell you when you have to perform the de-calc function but, in between, during normal use (when it should be fine), it still spurts out the grey, dirty looking water. It doesn't permanently stain your ironing but they have to be rewashed. Another issue with this iron is one that has been raised in other reviews; you cannot control the temperature. I am not convinced, despite Philips protestations, that it gets as hot as you need for certain fabrics and, consequently, doesn't do such a great job. This is an expensive item and looks and feels good. But the de calc problem is still there. I wish someone would design a steam generator that actually worked as they should. 27 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy ironing Best steam iron I have used. Generates the steam immediately on request and the iron glides freely. 06 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic steam generator Have been reluctant to spend the money on one of these for some time, I am now wishing I had purchased one a long time ago. Basically it's brilliant. 23 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by FANTASTIC an amazing iron. I don't know how it works without you having to change the temperature but it does. It is brilliant! 11 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Philips GC8650/80 PerfectCare Aqua Pressurised Steam Generator Iron Pleased with this item: takes getting used to the one-stop control but efficient and easy to work. 05 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Iron! Fantastic product. My mother bought the same one last year on Black Friday and I picked one up on the JL sale after trying hers out. It really does make ironing practically effortless and greatly cuts down on the time it takes. Really good results on all fabrics but it struggles to take all the creases some of my cotton shirts- these were always a pain to iron anyway. It does still give items like trousers a bit of a 'shine' but i was used to turning these inside out anyway so no huge problem there. Easy to use and can leave the iron on the board without it burning anything. Not having to adjust temperatures is also a real bonus. Easy to fill and quick heat up time. Also great for vertical garment steaming. Only slight issue is it is quite noisy when drawing water into the steam generator tank and sounds akin to something out of War of the Worlds. It doesn't bother me though. I don't usually bother writing reviews but this product is fantastic and I wouldn't live without it now. Highly recommend 28 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Bought to replace my failed Bosch steam generating iron and after first use am very impressed. It's compact, with thought gone into design, with locking iron, cord tidies and a large integrated reservoir. very smooth easy iron. Hope it continues to perform so well. 26 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Almost enjoyable,,,, Very happy with my purchase. Ironing is still a chore but much quicker and easier. The iron itself is light and easy to handle whilst producing excellent results. Comes to temperature quickly and quiet in operation. Leaving the iron face down on the board takes a bit of getting used to and you need to mind your fingers don't get too close to the steam if, like me, you tend to pull bits of shirt tight to get in to corners etc but one soon learns! Well worth the money. 22 March 2015
