'Hot bit of stuff ' The ' Perfect' Philips Iron!No one thinks ironing is fun ... but this new Philips PerfectCare Iron is putting the fun and excitement back into ironing!!
This state of the art iron reduces time spent ironing and has a number of amazing features. This iron does exactly what it says on the box and does it well.
The most exciting feature is this clever iron is it's 'OptimalTemp' where it has the ability to control the temperature and steam on any material without the user having to lift a finger! It cleverly recognises the fabric and without the use of any dial, automatically adjusts the temperature allowing the jump from linen to silk. Imagine no wasted time waiting for the iron to cool down or heat up and ' burnt plates' are a thing of the past!
Bonus features ...........
2 minute start up
1.5 litre water tank ( 2 hrs ironing time)
SteamGlide sole plate
Safety lock to hold iron to plate (no risk of damage during storage) and easy to carry
Cord storage compartments
Philips is a house hold name that every one trusts and after using this product it is clear to see wy they have gained the title of ' Worlds's No1 Ironing Brand'. I would definately recommend this iron and the name Philips to all.

Life changing!!Wow this iron is absolutely amazing, everything about it is just fabulous, ironing is no longer a chore with this beauty I am so in love with it! It is true to say it has changed my life!! No more nightmare ironing pile taking over my house , with this iron it is a pleasure!! This iron is like no other I have tried, and I have owned a few steam generators over the years as are a large family and the Philips PerfectCare GC9230 wins hands down, this glides through everything like a real trooper, no temperature dial so everything is ironed at the one temperature and it does not burn any fabrics even the delicatest of items inc silk (left on garment for 5 mins and didn't damage!!). The design is amazing, large water capacity which lasts agessss ,has an easy de calc function, also runs alot quieter than any other steam generator i have owned, and also generates the steam very quickly, if you have had to dry clothes indoors on radiators you will know what i'm talking about when i say the clothes feel like cardboard when dry? this iron makes them all lovely and soft again. Worth it's weight in gold! Don't be fooled by cheaper brands thinking it's just an iron so i'll go for this one, jump right in and get this , you will be amazed!! Team with the Philips PerfectCare Super 8 ironing board as that is soooo fabulous aswell and I will write a review for it also! Brilliant invention Philips !!

Hot bit of Stuff!! That knows when to cool down!!Nobody loves ironing but Philips have definately changed my views on ironing with this new state of the art iron. The Philips PerfectCare Optimal temp iron is the queen bee of irons and Philips have done exactly what they say on the box and done it well!
This Iron glides effortlessly from wools to jeans with out the user having to touch a fiddly dial to change the temperature. The iron magically recongnises the fabric using an Advanced Smart Control Procesor. No more burnt iron plates or ruined silk blouses. This saves time as you no longer have to wait for the iron to cool or heat up between garments.
I loved the huge 1.5 litre tank that gives up to 2 hours worth of ironing and the quick 2 minute start up and ready to go.
Its easy to see with this product why Philips have earned the title of 'World's No 1 Ironing Brand' its amazing and has saved me time and effort to the point where I quite enjoy ironing, compared to the previous chore it was and I would recommend to friends and family.
Having previously had a steam generator which got damaged in a cupboard due to the tip being hit, one of the huge advantages for me was the safety lock which holds the iron securely and enables you to carry it by the handle.
You will need more storage space than a normal iron but it is an average size compared to other steam generators.

Full steam ahead!!I’ll start by saying I wish I had bought one of these earlier as it has made my life so much easier, so simple and straightforward to use I wonder how I managed without it. When you first use it you will be surprised at just how quickly it heats up and how easily you can start using it, no dials, temperature controls or anything. You just fill the 1.5 litre detachable water tank (which allows for two hours of use), switch it on and off you go.
The sole plate is just hot enough to dry off the fabric after steaming. It’s this nifty design that allows you to iron silk and then linen without the need to change any settings. I was absolutely amazed with the PerfectCare iron. It does not scorch or burn any fabric type including silk. My silk dress now looks as if they had been professionally laundered. Also there is now no need to sort through the laundry before you start ironing or fiddling with varying thermostat settings. The secret is in the fact that it uses steam, which is highly effective at removing creases.
As the water is in the tank and not the iron, it’s lighter than normal irons and glides through the creases with ease, less effort and so much quicker than my old iron which can only be a good thing. It has a vertical steam capability too so you can freshen up your curtains whilst they are still hanging or quickly steam through a dress or suit that's been sitting in the wardrobe a little too long.
With an indicator light and the "easy de-calc feature" it makes descaling a very simple, straightforward job. There is also a water level indicator and a dry tank alert so you always know how much is left. Another feature that I found useful was the carry lock. When not in use you can lock the iron in place onto the base, then the handle of the iron itself becomes a handle to move the whole unit around for storage.
The Philips PerfectCare really is a fabulous Iron, l wish I'd bought one years ago!! I highly recommended this product, particularly for people who do a lot of ironing and want to get it done very quickly, efficiently and with minimal fuss. An Iron really doesn’t come any better than this one. Perfect!

Great Ironing ExperienceGreat on the most difficult to iron linens, no waiting for the iron to cool down before moving straight onto delicate manmade polyesters or silks without fear of damage. Cuts ironing time down dramatically with wonderful results.

Expensive with flawsThe good points:
- it does iron the clothes well
- it's expensive
- mine lasted 2 years if that before it stopped producing steam
- it often leaks hot water
When it works, the clothes are ironed nicely. Sadly for an expensive iron to break so quickly and to often leak water is very disappointing.

New man in my life - PhillipI received my new Phillips Perfectcare Iron last week with the amazing well thought out ironing board. On opening the box with the iron in, the first thing I noticed was the quality of the product which was visible through the flex and the wires (I know its sad) but these things really matter for health and safety - the flex reminded me of the quality goods used to be like years ago -well made and thought about. Next I quickly took the "Beast of an Iron" out of the box and quickly started to use it, it took a little time getting used to at first with no temperature control but my confidence quickly grew once I realised that the quality of this product ensured nothing got burnt or charred.
My next thoughts was where was I going to store this amazing machine and ironing board - Mmmm after some thought this was easy - my son had recently moved out (23 years old) and I had kept his room going just in case he decided to return - if things did not work out for him. Then I thought how long do I have to wait - no longer I suddenly decided now the perfectcare Iron and Ironing board have their own room ready for action at any time.. Every time I speak to my son now and he asks about his room I tell him its Phillips room now son you have moved on !!!
This is a considered purchase but it is worth every penny as it makes light work of the ironing and it is a joy to use - the ironing board has collapsable wings for perfectly ironed shirts in half the time it takes to use a conventional board

easier than it looksI was fortunate enough to be chosen for the come round ironing party and i recieved the above product. Initially we were all a little daunted as the packaging made the item look bigger than it was. Whilst everyone was enjoying their cocktails i set it up and hey presto within minutes we were up and running. We all, took it in turns to have a go . The great thing was i didnt have to keep changing the dials for different settings for each fabric. The iron can go for 2 hours without refilling so we had plenty of time. We even ran out of clothing!! The iron was much lighter than i thought it would be and so so easy to use. I initially though i would struggle with placing on a work surface but ive found the ideal spot. I will stick with my old ironing board as the larger one was too big for its usual place. My daughter has given that a new home
