Pros and cons

According to our iron expert
  • The steam burst of 220 grams per minute quickly eliminates stubborn creases.
  • Lime adheres to the lime collector, which you can easily rinse under the tap.
  • You simply top up the iron during use and the iron switches off automatically when you do not use it for a while.
  • This iron is relatively heavy with a weight of 1.57 kilos, but this means that you do not have to put as much force on it during ironing.

Handy if you regularly iron large quantities of laundry. Turn on your favorite series and you can iron away that mountain of clothing. If you ever forget to switch off the iron, there is no reason to panic. It automatically switches off if you don't use it for a while.

Effective and pleasant iron

  • Handy pointed shape
  • Lots of steam = smooth quickly
  • Water through pretty quickly

After I dropped the perfectcare from Philips (most expensive version) I bought it. At start-up there was some smoke in the room, but that seems to be heard (cough). After starting, I noticed that it is a pleasant device because of a pointed nose and, compared to my previous device, smoothes a lot faster, probably due to a combination of higher temperature and more steam. The disadvantage is that you have to top up a little earlier, but I had to do that 2x anyway. In short, an excellent purchase. I do miss a clip to lock the cord after rolling it up and I also miss a filling cup to fill the device if you don't want to use the tap.

fine

  • do not set
  • easy descaling
  • no

Precisely because you don't have to adjust anything and you can leave the iron on your clothes without causing shoe stains

I'm happy!

  • long cord
  • quickly up to temperature
  • cord loops along the shelf, no adapter included

I had a steam generator but had become an iron avoider because of the hassle: box had to sit on a shaky stool because steam cord was too short, needed an extension because power cord was too short, took a long time to get everything up to temperature, needed breaks in between to let off steam build it, and then you found something that had to be kept at a low temperature and you had to wait again for it to cool down. I hadn't ironed bedding in 15 years, but how nice is that, smooth sheets! With this steam iron you are ready in no time. Nice and fast and smooth, don't think about setting temperature, you can put it anywhere and it has a very long cord. Haven't done any maintenance yet. The only downside is the slinging of the cord along the shelf. All irons have that, of course, but why not include an adapter? Now I have to go back to that. You do get a refill cup, but you don't need it, because you have to cut it out to refill it, and then it can be run under the tap.

Great iron!

  • Warmed up quickly
  • Quick ironing clothes
  • Slightly heavier than expected

I've been using it for months and love it. Heats up very quickly... Indicates when to descale... You can clearly see when you need to refill and you have a cup with it. All clothes are nice and smooth without even 1 wrinkle in it!

Possibly the best price/quality in a long time!

  • Simple and effective
  • Easy to use
  • The heavy cable sometimes gets in the way

A fine device. Before this I had an iron with such an external water tank. They are nice, but I think they are mainly intended for larger families who have a lot of ironing. That is not the case for me.

A great iron for a nice price

  • gets hot quickly and has 2500 W
  • fits comfortably in the hand and irons very light despite the weight
  • the cover of the water filling opening is a bit fragile

I've been using the iron for 2 months now and I really like it. The ironing result is good. The best iron in 10 years.

This is how an 'annoying' job suddenly becomes fun

  • Nice design, nice color
  • Steaming and spraying
  • on the heavy side

For years I thought I hated ironing. Then my old iron broke and I was forced to buy a new one. It became this Philips bolt; I had it at home within 24 hours (brought on Sunday afternoon with the bicycle trailer by Coolblue - the broken device and a bag of empty batteries were taken/discarded right away - very nice). I like the new iron. Although ironing feels like a necessary 'evil' to me, I don't find it annoying anymore, maybe even a little fun. With this iron it is just super easy and the result is good. Most laundry is neatly smooth in one ironing stroke and the steam (or spray) facility offers a solution for some stubborn creases. The unit heats up quickly, automatically shuts off when stationary (so I don't have to worry about whether or not I left the plug plugged in). Temperature is well regulated. All this for a very reasonable price. I am satisfied! (some downsides: somewhat short cord (extension cord is a solution here) and a bit on the heavy side (but that might also give a better ironing result). I would buy it again in a heartbeat (but hope it lasts a long time of course). In short, need a new iron, look no further: this is it!
