Philips PerfectCare GC8620/02 Steam Generator Iron

Product information

Ironing is now truly simple with the Philips PerfectCare GC8620/02 steam generator.

Ironing your laundry will be a quicker job than ever: ready to use in just 2 minutes, the GC8620/02 has up to 5 bars of steam pressure for fast ironing. Revolutionary OptimalTemp technology always delivers the perfect combination of steam and temperature regardless of the garment material, so you can iron silk pyjamas after a cotton shirt without adjusting the settings.

A SteamGlide non-stick ceramic soleplate has a unique steam tip, so even the smallest or most difficult areas will soon look well pressed. You can use the GC8620/02 vertically as well, for ironing your curtains or even to iron clothes while they are still on the hanger.

Despite the incredible level of care offered by the Philips PerfectCare iron, it is still completely effective on even the toughest fabrics, thanks to a powerful continuous steam output of 120g/min, and a fantastic 180g/min boost. You can iron for up to 2 hours without the need to refill with the large 2.2 litre water tank.

Key benefits:


  • Optimal temperature technology ensures you can iron any garment without having to adjust the settings: iron silk, linen, cotton and cashmere in any order fuss- and worry-free
  • 180g/min steam boost and 120g/min steam output makes this iron effective on even the toughest fabrics
  • Hassle-free and effective scale removal to extend the life of your steam generator
  • 2.2 litre water tank for up to 2 hours of ironing without refilling
  • Ready to use in 2 minutes

Q & As


Philips PerfectCare GC8620/02 Steam Generator Iron 4.5 5 15 15
Every home should have one. Life is too short to waste time with ironing. However I also want my clothes to look good. This is the solution! Easy to use with good results every time. Gets the job done quickly and efficiently, what more do you need from an iron? 08 July 2014
Excellent steam generator I have had more steam generators than most but have to say this one is amazing it truly does make light work of a laborious task and I did flit from heavy denim to the silk with no problem. The water tank holds so much water it really does give uninterrupted ironing. It is not heavy and you can hear the TV - definitely a win win item. The price was excellent, I have paid more for a steam generator in the past but none have proved to be as good as this one 27 June 2014
Very efficient product Quick to use and halves the time of ironing, gets through creases almost instantly even on linen and cotton. Really impressed with it 16 June 2014
Steam iron After our iron packed up recently we decided to get a better one to make ironing more enjoyable ,I have to say that the Philips perfect care iron has indeed made ironing more enjoyable ,easy to use with no settings as it works the settings out for its self,with the large water tank it's so easy to get loads done in one go,highly recommend this iron. 06 May 2014
This iron will change your life I can't believe I've waited this long to buy one. This iron is amazing, worth every penny. Halves the ironing time as most things only need doing on one side. Lightweight to use, very effective, easy for teens to use as no temp settings or very hot soleplate, or risk of burning if left face down. Go and buy one now! 02 May 2014
Waiting to see! I received my iron and used it once very successfully. However, sadly the second time I used it, it leaked and despite examining it and resetting it, it still leaked. I sent it back and got another one very swiftly so shall persevere as I like the action and way it irons all manner of materials. However only time will tell whether it will continue to operate well, I'm inclined to think it will. 24 February 2014
Not for me This is my first steam generator purchase, moving from a normal steam iron. I think perhaps my expectations were too high as I was expecting perfect crease-free ironing and this certainly didn't achieve that. We ended up rejecting the product and returning to our old iron. Not worth the extra outlay in my opinion. 16 September 2013
leaking water tank I have just done my first large amount of ironing since receiving my new iron. Very impressed with the ability of the iron but I've noticed water dripping from the tank onto the floor. Is this normal? I hope not as I don't want to be mopping my floor everytime I iron. Any suggestions would be greatly received. 13 September 2013
