Q & As

Philips PerfectCare Silence GC9550/02 Steam Generator Iron 3.3 5 12 12
Outstanding results I just wanted to write a review on this steam generator, as I was put off by previous reviews. I loved my previous Phillips perfectcare aqua steam generator, but i had to return it, because it was leaking water. John Lewis didn't have the same model at the time, so I decided to pay the difference and up grade to this model ( despite some of the negative reviews). I am so glad I did! It is a dream to use. Lightweight, easy to refill with tap water, really good steam pressure and it looks beautiful too! I am constantly ironing shirts and cotton bedding and always put up with less than perfect results, but this is a real game changer! It is worth every penny, if like me, you have a lot of ironing to do for your family. 04 September 2014
iron the easy way I have always wanted this type of iron & now I have one I will not go back to a normal iron. My new iron saves me so much time. I wish I had one when my 4 children lived at home. Ironing now is simple. 02 September 2014
Doesn't live up to expectation Bought this iron as old generator had given up had tefal ones before , this is not a great product , it leaves limescale ( even after descaling ) on your clothes and also black gunk !, so leaving me to rewash clothing? Poor quality do not buy 04 August 2014
The joy of ironing I never thought I would say this but ironing has actually become (almost) enjoyable! This is my first steam generator iron and I only wish I'd changed to this type years ago. It has reduced ironing time by half and the quality of ironing is significantly better. Best of all is that the iron itself is lightweight and is really easy to manoeuvre. Very pleased and to top it all, the product was on an excellent offer at John Lewis. 28 May 2014
brilliant product I have had this iron now for 4 is amazing.unlike other reviewers I have ironed new egyptian cotton straight from the washing line with fantastic results.even my husband thinks its brilliant. (He is unaware of the cost though) it is the most expensive iron I have ever purchased and it did worry me somewhat but there is a 60 day money back guarantee which will not be needed, I love this product and it is a pleasure to use.I would recommend to anyone. 29 March 2014
Poor results Like other reviewers, I have found this iron very poor in removing creases from cotton bed linen as the sole plate does not get hot enough, and the temperature cannot be altered. It does produce a large amount of steam, but this does not adequately compensate for the low temperature, The cord storage space built into the iron is useless. I returned the iron to John Lewis, and exchanged it for a Tefal model with adjustable temperature, and find that far more efficient. 19 February 2014
Really Disappointed I bought this product perhaps stupidly, as the sales lady said it was the most popular. As we have mountains of ironing at home I was happy to pay a bit more for, what I believed to be a good product. While it does all the fancy stuff like iron silk, cotton etc without you turning a knob, it does not really iron that well. Egyptian cotton sheets and pillow cases, forget it. It just didn't get through the creases. All the bed linen still have a crumpled looked about them. It also spills out water. So I have crumpled wet sheets. I'm taking this product straight back, hopefully, for a refund. 04 February 2014
Philips Perfectcare Range I have just had to return a Perfectcare Silence as it was no good for pure cotton sheets. The OptimalTemperature system does not allow the iron to reach sufficient heat to iron out the creases. Also there is not a constant supply of hot steam. The pressure drops almost immediately and there is a delay until the reservoir empties, refills and then reheats before the max pressure is restored. The iron is fine for shirts etc where you stop and start but when doing pillowcases and sheets, this is not the iron for me. I have just bought a Philips Easycare steam generated iron with a temperature dial instead. 25 January 2014
