Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Think twice before purchase I bought this item 6 months ago & am now returning it. The 'fill water tank' indicator is stuck on & the item cannot be used. When the item was in use, it flooded items with hot water & although regularly 'de-calc'd' & cleaned it left brown marks. At 3 or 4 times the cost of a regular iron I am extremely disappointed! 27 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful piece of kit So glad I bought this steam generator. It greatly reduces the time spent ironing, especially the bed linen for our two B&B rooms. I thoroughly recommend it. 25 August 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by OK but nothing to get excited about I have used (Polti) steam generator irons for over a decade. Although unreliable (despite using recommended water softeners they struggled to cope with our hard water and tended to leak), when they were working, they were much more speedy and effective than this particular Philips model which I bought as a replacement. I've used the Philips four or five times and I think the ironing finish is inferior to my previous irons and anyway requires more time to achieve. My Philips model doesn't leak as other reviewers have mentioned but needs very frequent refilling which is irritating when you just want to finish one of life's more boring chores as quickly as possible. I don't know much about engineering steam generator irons so remain surprised that manufacturers don't produce a very basic and ubiquitous product to greater universal satisfaction and higher standards. 25 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous! I had been defending the old fashioned iron for years arguing that it does the job just fine but having finally invested in this steam iron I am now a complete convert and can't sing it's praises highly enough. It cuts down on ironing time, is light, efficient and with no temperature setting you can iron nylon and then immediately onto linen without changing a thing! Yes really, I didn't believe it either - wish I bought one years ago! 24 July 2015
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
