philips perfectcare aqua pressurised steam generator iron is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong steamer! I bought this iron 2 weeks ago & so far so good. Strong steam generation & very safe to leave face down on the ironing board. It could perhaps use a temperature function for very difficult to iron fabrics but it still performs very well on most fabrics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Gift of Time Purchased one of these today and brought it home and gave it a go. Fantastic. Worked my way through a bucket of ironing that had been building up. The old iron was a non-steamer version, a Philips Azur, and this one easily out performs it. My wife and I reckon at least half the time of the old iron. I particularly like the fact that the iron can sit face down while you adjust the clothes. So simple to use- turn it one, no settings to muck around with, wait a minute and then get in to your chores. Owning an iron like this is like getting the gift of time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Was great I was surprised there was no detailed instruction book with the iron. I have no idea when I am supposed to use the de calc function. The very first time I used this I was in love.2 months later, it does not seem to steam up or perform as well as it did with the first 2 uses and I have only had it 2 months. Would be great if someone from Philips could tell me of this was normal and advise about the instruction book as this was not a cheap purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT I did a bit of research before purchasing the Philips steam generator and took the advice of other people who had purchased one. It was the best decision that I made. What a great product. I almost enjoy ironing now. It really makes a difference to the time to iron garments. Light and easy to use. Love the fact that you do not need to stand the iron up that you just leave it flat on the ironing board and it does not burn the cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes ironing a breeze! I really love my new steam iron. It works perfectly and makes ironing so much easier. I love that you don't have to adjust the settings to the fabric type, it just knows!! My only negative is the iron head doesn't have a flat base so you can't sit it on the board while you move the clothing item to iron another spot. I use the "hopper" on my board to house it so it's a small problem really. Overall the best iron ever!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed! This is a great iron, I'm so glad I purchased it even though I intended to buy another brand. I'm a very particular about ironing and this iron is amazing. Aside from being so light, so easy to use (just turn it on and wait 2 minutes) and it gives a beautiful finish to the clothing, from linen to silks - it makes ironing a breeze. Well done Philips I'll be recommending this iron to others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped working just out of warranty We chose this steam iron as it seemed to have the best features and it was not the cheapest but not the most expensive. Worked well for about 20 months then started to play up. We cleaned it de-calced it but eventually it just gave up, Phillips referred us to an independent repair service as it was just out of warranty. I would not recommend this iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This iron is a dream to use Have been using this iron for a few weeks now and love it. The huge water tank and steam pressure makes it so simple and efficient to use. I highly recommend this iron to everyone.
