Product Expert Irons

If you want more steam power than an iron but you find most steam generators too large, then the Philips PerfectCare Compact GC7831/20 is for you. The advantage of the Compact line of the PerfectCare series is that you can easily store the steam generator. The steam production of 120 grams and steam pressure of 5.8 bar are enough for most creases. Does a crease refuse to disappear? Then use the powerful burst of 330 grams per minute.

OptimalTemp technology
The PerfectCare steam generators have an automatic steam and temperature setting. That's useful, because this allows you to iron all fabrics together and it prevents burns.

Descaling and switching off
If the steam generator indicates that it's time to descale, you must run a cleaning program. The manual explains exactly how you do this. Did you leave in a hurry while leaving the iron on? The PerfectCare steam generators switch off automatically, so that's okay.
