Q & As

Philips PerfectCare Silence GC9550/02 Steam Generator Iron 3.1 5 16 16
Easy to use Fast and efficient- easy to use. Sometimes a bit difficult to tidy the cable into its pockets 27 January 2015
Total waste of money Chosen this iron but it only lasted me for 9 months. Water pours out from the sole platte until the tank is empty. All my clothes get soaking wet. It also makes a lot of noise even though it is supposed to be the quietest iron generator. I have 2 years JL guarantee on this product but I have misplaced the receipt. John Lewis have records of every electrical goods I bought but no record of this iron. Please don't waste your money on this product. 25 January 2015
Broken after 1 year and 4 months I bought this iron a year and 4 months ago from John Lewis and was impressed until now. It doesn't work anymore. I turn it on and I cannot get steam out of the iron immediately and sometimes not at all. If I depress the steam button for a long period of time it may start up but water is flooding out of it as it spits out steam. It has been like this for weeks. Not good at all, especially when you consider the price. I bought off the website and noted it has a 2 year guarantee so will hopefully get it sorted out. 10 January 2015
Fantastic, almost enjoying ironing! This is a hugely expensive iron and I thought long and hard about getting it but I am so glad I did. It makes ironing so easy, it is really quiet so you can actually hear the television while you iron and I get through a basket of ironing without having to refill the water tank. Only had it a month but absolutely love it and recommend it unhesitatingly. Got from JL because of the two year guarantee so have that peace of mind just in case. 16 December 2014
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
