Q & As

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by So easy to use AS I said earlier, this is so simple to use my wife actually uses it! genuinely it works really well, the smart feature is fantastic. It never burns a thing and we can now iron everything in one go. 24 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far so good! This replaces a previous Philips model which has not been very satisfactory - but I am pleased to say that to date it is performing well and is living up to its 5* rating - long may it do so. 23 June 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Avoid Bought it as a WHICH? Best Buy and the first lasted 90 mins before spraying boiling water instead of steam and the replacement (God bless JohnLewis) lasted less than an hour - it goes back tomorrow and we'll go for an alternative. So many other people with similar reviews too - I wonder if Philips are just rotating these dodgy returned irons. Anyway, rather than buy this rubbish just pour boiling water directly from your kettle all over your washing and ironing board whilst hissing and spitting at the top of your voice and your clothes will look exactly the same but for a fraction of the cost. 05 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous love it!! Don't be put off by recent reviews. I love mine, makes ironing super quick and easy. Brought new steam generator ironing board too and I have no issues with too much steam or puddles on floor. It irons all fabrics really well, and make ironing my sons tops with pictuers and transfers on a doddle. 29 May 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good for Cottons...nothing more It has a very good and satisfying steam pressure. Smooth design and easy to use. doesn't iron well :( Could be useful for already ironed clothes, and just need some quick touches. Or you need quick ironing for T-shirt or polos, but DEFINITELY not for something else. does NOT's just make the clothes ready to be ironed with another conventional iron. 27 May 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not worth the money I bought this on the recommendation of The Philips sales person. It doesn't iron nearly as well as I expected. I thought bedding would be crease free but not so. I do like the fact that you don't have to change the setting for different materials. The water pipe from the tank to the iron gets so hot it burns my leg - I use it with the tank on the floor. I was assured by the rep that the water tank would last a good hour but I am having to fill it regularly. I'm afraid I'll be returning it and using my old iron. 11 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by In for a drenching Bought this based on the Which? reviews and the largely positive JL reviews. (Should have taken note of the more recent negative comments.) It's fine if you like ironing in a Turkish bath and having your floor transformed into a swimming pool. Despite using the Eco setting water was cascading through the mesh of the ironing board and puddling on the floor. This really restricts where the iron can be used - and the long term prospects for my ironing board cover and underlay is not good. The water tank also needs refilling very regularly - certainly not as long lasting as the Rowenta machine I had borrowed. And the laundry was sodden once ironed and required opening up and drying before being put away. The base is also too heavy to rest on the ironing board and despite having a good quality board it was listing to one side. If you do lots of fiddly ironing or make soft furnishings / dressmaking you may find yourself in A and E. It's just too dangerous to put your fingers anywhere near it. And there is no option to turn it into a 'regular' iron. Really not impressed. The ironing itself might be quicker but the collateral damage and clearing up makes this a very bad - and very expensive - buy. 08 May 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed This steam generator has some good features and comes with excellent reviews but it doesn't get hot enough for my liking and it dropped far too much water. I had to return it. 30 March 2015
