Very Happy

 

Having a family that seem to think I enjoy ironing I needed an iron that did the job quickly. This fits the bill completely. It saves me no end of time and its easy to use. Thank you Phillips !!

At Last

 

This is my third steam generator iron, but my first Philips and I am very, very pleased. I hope it lasts longer than the others, but already I am happier with the performance and the refil is safe and easy to do (unlike others I have used).

Philips Eco GC7430/02 Pressurised Steam Generator Iron

 

This iron replaces an older version of its kind which lasted 5 years so naturally I went for the same again except that it is updated and has a few features that the old one didn't have. I love it, ironing made easy!

Fantastic steam iron

 

After having a normal iron with just a small steam section, I am really impressed with this Philips iron. My ironing time has been significantly reduced. this is a brilliant iron with either constant steam or you can push a button to control the amount...

A good iron

 

this is the second one i have. The first one started leaking water out of the soul-plate of the iron and turned itself off after I had had it for about 7 months. The steam is great and makes ironing much easier, although it is a little noisy to use. i...
