Excellent product & Service

Very pleased with the iron,great compact and light weight! Service excellent as always from ao.com

Dissapointing, why change the way the steam works Phillips?

My treasured Philips PerfectCare steam generator iron gave up without notice, with the increasing pile of ironing and less than 48 hours to the school uniform job to be done getting it fixed was not an option, as I don’t like change and my old model being absolutely fantastic I went in search of the exact same iron but with no prevail. I did come across this model though (which is the same as my old one just a few models on) at a great price so did my research, everyone seemed happy who had purchased one and the power was more and an extra 0.5 bar of steam. Great I thought and purchased straight away for next day delivery and in plenty of time to do the uniform. Happy days!!!! Thankyou AO for your super service. So with excitement, when it arrived the ironing board was up in minutes and unpacked filled and heating. That’s when the excitement stopped, it is nothing like my old model even though it is the same brand just a few models on. There is a delay in the steam, and it continues for 2 seconds after you let go of the button, this means because of the routine I had got into from my old model I was getting a face steam but none on the clothes. The steam jet should be greater as it’s more powerful but that’s not the case, I have to work harder to get the creases out. Positives are it’s lighter, and quieter and the water tank although not as big as my old iron is bigger than most other brands. All in all I’m not impressed and if I though I could return it I would so I’m left trying to get my old model fixed.


Loved the compact size of this iron, and the easy way to fill, however it is very noisy and a lot of water comes out when ironing which just makes ironing difficult, very disappointed


Excellent product arrived next day wheñ it said it would. Just plug in and away you go the temperature sets itself and can deal with any type of fabric. So easy even my husband can use it and that's a triumph.

Great product, great price.

Bought this steam generator based on the selling price and previous purchase of a Philips steam generator which lasted many years. It's easy to use as there is no thermostat to set, ironed many different items without any problems. It was always hot enough to iron easily without damaging any fabrics. If you need more steam then double press the steam button on the handle for a burst of steam. If you need a lot of steam then press the boost button on the tank and if you don't need that much you can use the eco setting on the tank also. The water tank never gets hot and is compact enough to sit on a medium/large size board. The tank and the iron clip together for easy storage.

Compact and easy to use

With no temperature setting, this steam generator iron is perfect for those looking for a universal easy to use, small to store iron. Haven't use the calc clean as of yet but from the instructions this seems very simple. Not as loud as my previous tefal and steam is not as forceful but gets the job done. No complaints. 4 star as started to spit little bit of brown water on 4th use but rectified itself.
