Pros and cons

According to our iron expert
  • With 7.5 bars of steam pressure, you'll finish ironing your laundry in no time, and the high steam burst of 520 grams per minute takes care of the most persistent creases.
  • The temperature and steam settings are automatically adjusted, allowing you to consecutively iron different kinds of fabric.
  • Thanks to the Silent Steam technology, the steam generator doesn't make as much noise during ironing, and the light weight of the iron means you don't have to put in as much effort.
  • Note: a steam generator doesn't fit on a regular ironing board.
  • During use you can refill the water reservoir, but you have to wait a while until the water is heated up again.

Description

The Philips PerfectCare Expert Plus GC8962/40 is one of the most powerful and professional steam generators from Philips. Thanks to the high steam pressure of 7.5 bar and steam burst of 520 grams per minute, you can easily blitz through the laundry pile. The iron is lightweight, has the most advanced soleplate, and does its job more quietly than most other steam generators.

OptimalTemp technology
Sorting your laundry before you start ironing isn't necessary either. The OptimalTemp technology automatically sets the steam and temperature based on the fabric. This technology also prevents scorch marks on your favorite T-shirt.

Descaling and switching off
Is the descaling light on the steam generator lit? All you need to do is remove the lime collector from the generator and rinse it under the faucet. If you don't use the iron for a while, it switches off automatically. That way, the steam generator is both safe and energy-efficient.

      Large water reservoir can also use tap water

    • Pros:
      Excellent Christmas action
    • Con:
      A bit noisy, but you get used to it

    I have wanted a steam generator for years, but this great Christmas action made me buy one (at last). I have no regrets as the unit is a dream to use and gives great results. It is a little noisier than expected, but that is the only con for me. I will never go back to a traditional iron.
