philips perfectcare elite silence steam iron is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This takes ironing to a whole new level! The steam is really high pressure, but it does not produce the moisture you might expect. The iron is also surprisingly quiet, just a little chug chug noise while getting ready to use. The “no burn” technology is a bonus, never having to change the temperature for different material types - this is such a time saver if you are working through a weekly pile of clothes. The biggest con for me is the size, this is a beast and is far too heavy to sit on my existing ironing board. Be warned, you’ll need to invest in a different ironing board that can hold the weight and they don’t come cheap. Overall though, this iron has made my life so much easier. Squeeze, steam, glide and it’s done!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of steam I'm loving the large water tank on this steam iron as I used to have to refill the tank of my previous steam iron quite often. Not having to adjust the temperature control to suit various fabrics also makes for mindless ironing in front of the tv.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The iron turns off too quickly. I purchased this product to replace a previous iron. As the previous iron was a Philips steam station I was happy to buy another after nearly 9 years I was very happy with my iron. When I purchased the new one I was a little disappointed as it is not as good as my previous one. As I have used it more I like it better as I get used to it. It cuts off to quickly when not in use, and as I use it a lot when I am sewing, to have it cut off so often is a pain as I have to wait for it to heat up again before I can use it. Though I agree it is a good safety feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant but not perfect I love this iron, it makes tackling the ironing pile so much quicker and easier plus the iron itself can be used vertically for steaming jackets etc. BUT it's currently back with Philips to be fixed, having developed a serious leak from the generator base and scale having built up in the soleplate, meaning that the iron squeals like a stuck pig when in use and leaks brown water. I'm hoping that this is just a rogue one and isn't the norm for this product as other than these issues which will hopefully be fixed or the iron replaced, it is so much better than a traditional iron. I'm still mystified as to how the temperature thing works as you really can switch from one fabric to another without any fear of scorching or melting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has excellent features. Ironing is a breeze with this iron. It quickly is available to use when switched on and a ready signal is helpful. It is safe to rest on the ironing board between ironing garments as it is only activated when button on handle is pressed when used. Garments are well pressed and all fabrics are safe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power cord too short I bought this iron a week ago and so far it's lived up to expectations. My only criticism is that tha power cord is too short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from removable water tank i got this a month ago and have been ironing everything not just the shirts that i used to .Its quick and with this model you dont have to hold down the steam button if you dont want to you can just click it twice for extra and continuous steam and the removable water tank just makes it so much more convenient and it seems to hold a lot of water i haven't used one full tank yet after a couple of hours of ironing

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Very Happy with This Iron Not very happy with this iron, it pumps more water out of the unit than steam, to a point that I have to put the item in the clothes dryer to dry before putting the item on. I did previously own a Philips Aqua Pro Steam Iron which I was extremely happy with until it was accidentally dropped and damaged, because I was so impressed I thought I would buy the newest and latest only to be very disappointed.
