philips perfectcare aqua pressurised steam generator iron is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 37.
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 5 out of 5 by from Best iron I've used I HATE ironing. I don't know why I just do so but my husband always wears shirts so when I next needed to buy an iron I read all the reviews on consumer and decided to buy this one. It's really good I still don't like ironing but it's fast and the results are good. Instead of just doing my husbands shirts I now do duvets the kids sheets aprons and other stuff. So if It makes me voluntarily add stuff to the ironing basket it shows that this is the best ironing system out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Philips Aquacare Steam Iron I am on to my second iron in this range. I just love the speed with which I can whizz through all the shirts, and the steam lock-on setting is great for de-wrinkling those 'hung in the wardrobe too long' clothes. I also like the 'no setting' feature, and have ironed from silk, synthetic through to wool with all good results, and no adverse effects on the fabric. Fantastic. it has only one minus, the stream cord is not as flexible as just a plain electric cord, but one gets used to it. Ruffles and hard to iron areas look so much better with just the steam setting and hovering over them, then a little shake and it's all done.

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 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Steam Generator I purchased this Steam Generator Iron as an upgrade from my previous Philips Steam Generator which was over 4 years old and died. This one is very flash, no need to change settings, provides a great amount of steam, much more than my previous model and it doesn't spit water like my previous one used too from time to time. Have used it on a number of different fabrics and has performed well on all. As I use this iron most days it lives permanently on my bench in the laundry, so the weight of the base is no issue for me. Only thing I find annoying is the length of the cord to the iron I need to be very close to the bench with the ironing board and at times this can be a bit awkward.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good alternative to large steam machines The product does the job quickly and hassle free. Can be used on any type of garment without worrying about changing temperature compared to traditional irons. There was a little water when I opened first time. The packing was not sealed and steam iron was wrapped in plastic bag with a knot on top. Upon returning back to the store, I was informed that this is due to Quality Check. Hard to convince myself but had to accept it as the store manager opened another box to show that all steam irons comes with little water and an unsealed plastic covering inside.

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 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.
