Q & As

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 53 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed The iron was good for ironing a large batch of clothes and not having to adjust the settings for different fabrics was useful . However, it started to leak "a lot" of water, instead of steam after about a year of use. Sent back for repair and after 4 weeks it's leaking again. Ironing board is soaked through! So it's going back again. Don't bother buying this iron! 11 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really easy to use I found this iron easy to use use it takes care of all fabrics without having to change the temperature. The iron has 6.5 bar pressure which means you can get through all your laundry pile in no time. It also has a detachable water tank for easy filling. I would highly recommend it for anyone who does a lot of ironing . 11 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy ironing If you want to speed through ironing in an easy fashion I would recommend this product. It is simple to use and makes ironing less of a chore. 27 January 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by I expected more ease of use and design no problems. the optimalTEMP technology is a great idea but I find when switching from a material that requires less heat to say cotton or linen it doesn't get hot enough and doesn't iron all the creases out.. overall not really happy with this iron. 08 December 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by There are better conventional irons I have to say that this iron does not iron creases out. It also acts as a re-washing device dispensing huge quantities of water onto the clean clothes. 04 December 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very disappointing I bought this iron with high expectations. The thing I liked most was that it went over any fabric without having to change temperature settings. At first it was very very good but then it started leaking, not a little, the floor was soaking. John Lewis, excellent as always, sent me a replacement iron but after four months the same thing happened. Again John Lewis are replacing the iron but I am not having another one of these. It's a shame because if it didn't leak it would be perfect. 13 November 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Expensive and useless On the second time of using this steam generator the steam was on permanently. I tried everything I could think of to turn it off but the machine had jammed on constant steam. I was sold this product by the Philips representative as the all singing all dancing reliable piece of kit so was willing to pay the price. Unfortunately it has not lived up to any promises or expectations. On a positive note the one time it did work properly it was very good. Thanks to John Lewis I will receive afull return to manufacturer to be fixed and no questions asked. tHank you J L . 05 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent!!! This iron is amazing and the best iron I have EVER used! Being a mum of 3 young children,my ironing pile is never ending, so I've always invested a lot of money in an iron. Having previously has 3 Laurastar irons (all of which broke) I'd had enough of the constant problems and faults of the Laurastar (including the plastic on the iron melting!!) and needed a reliable iron! I thought I'd give the Philips a go after reading its reviews,all I can say is amazing!! My ironing time has halved,the optimal temp means you don't have to wait for it to cool down or get hotter for different fabrics and I no longer have to spray very creased items with a water spray prior to ironing. I highly recommend this product!!! 01 November 2015
