Q & As

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Steam Generator This is the best stream generating iron i have purchased. 28 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product overall This item is definitely worth it for regular ironing and most type of clothing materials. 09 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Soooo pleased with this iron. Not only is it stylish and easy to use, it does a great job too. Would recommend it to anyone. 05 April 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Avoid at all costs The iron only lasts around 1 year - and this is with pretty light use. A replacement was given 11 months in, and now (just out of the original warranty) the replacement breaks down. Alternates between: a) water pouring out of the sole plate, despite descaling and following all procedures. b) no steam coming out at all The iron does actual iron OK (when it works), but for a premium product, OK is just not good enough. Upon reading the reviews originally, I assumed maybe a few irons were faulty, the rest must be OK. However, given my experience and that of more reviewers, I am doubting my original assumption. So overall, it deserves zero stars. I can't see how this lives up to the quality that I expect from John Lewis - I am extremely disappointed with Philips and John Lewis, and out of pocket, with no iron. 06 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful steam iron Best steam iron I have used. Be aware that it says cN used tap water but if in a hard water area it needs to be filtered. 15 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Investment Well worth the investment, and I now love ironing. Quick, easy and simple to use, love it and recommend it. 20 October 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Almost perfect I bought this iron because I was looking for the ultimate silent steam generator and it was advertised as such. Also, other feedback comments indicated it was as such. The iron is truly brilliant with regards to its power and the amazing way that it does not have any heat control's and you really can go from ironing the strongest linen to the most delicate of materials. However, I honestly do believe that it is impossible to get a silent steam generator and have been proven right with this one. I replaced my previos steam generator with this one as my old one was exceptionally noisy. Although this one is not silent it is definitely an improvement, so, overall, I am quite happy with my purchase. 06 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So quick and easy to use Have had a steam generator before but this is superb so far! Quiet, so can iron while watching TV and still hear it. Don't need to fiddle with temperature control. Easy to use, and to decalc. Water reservoir is easy to empty completely and so far has not grown algae in the bottom ( my previous Phillips one did despite me being meticulous about emptying it) 29 September 2015
