I like this iron very much. The results are professional especially with the ionic steam which I thought would be a gimmick but does work. It glides easily. However I would be reluctant to recommend it to anyone with wrist problems as it is heavy...

Philips Azur Ionic GC4870/02 Steam Iron


reliable and ease of use, cant fault it at all. highly recommend this product.

Excellent Iron

Very Nice


I bought this to replace a similar older one I already had, the added ionic steam button makes ironing a lot easier, only takes one glide to iron thick denim jeans! brilliant...

Very good iron


This iron is really good and powerful. It is a bit heavy and u do need to fill it up often with water when ironing. Compared to other irons out there this one is worth the money.
