The Philips PerfectCare Elite Steam generator Iron was sent to me for review purposes from Buzzador.
I am not paid for this review, but I did receive the product for free and the deal was for me to give a review on Philips Sweden’s web page that’s it.
I know this is not usually the type of product I do reviews on but since I got the opportunity to try the product I really wanted to tell you about it on my blog as well.
Max 6.5 bar pressure
Up to 450 g steam boost
1.8 L water tank capacity
Detachable water tank
My thoughts on Philips PerfectCare Elite Steam generator Iron
I am not a person that loves ironing at all. I look at it as a necessity instead of something that is nice and relaxing (yup, I do know people who loves to iron, believe it or not).
When I received this one I thought it was really huge and bulky and I did not really get why it had to be so huge. But since the only iron I had (before this one) was an iron that I bought about 20 years ago and it is still working. I hadn’t even heard of steaming your clothes (at home that is). So for my defense I really did not have so much to compare with.
This steam generator really made me look at ironing in a complete different way and ironing suddenly became easier, I am not saying I love ironing and it is super fun. No, those words will never ever come out of my mouth. But at least ironing is easier than before and if one gets bored one can always puff some steam, just for the fun of it.
The iron it self is really lightweight. I live with chronic pain and for me a heavy iron really is a big deal. So, because this is lightweight it is making my life a little easier.
The iron has a large detachable water tank so it is really easy to refill when needed. The tank has 1,8 l capacity so you can iron for about 2 hours before you need to refill. If you have that much ironing to do, I really feel sorry for you.
There is also an ECO mode which saves energy. The ECO mode reduces the amount of steam but still it disperses enough steam for a nice result.
There is no . or .. or … for you to worry about. There is no need to change anything no matter if you iron jeans, towels or blouses.
The first times I used it I really was nervous about burning my clothes, but no worries it works exactly as it is supposed to no matter what I am ironing.
I was really surprised that you can leave the iron down while sorting clothes or organizing. Normally you put the iron in an upward position but with this you simply don’t need to. I know this just feels wrong but it still doesn’t burn anything since it is steam that does the job.
There is also an automatic power off if the iron isn’t used within a few minutes. I love this feature since I sew a lot and need to iron between seems. Normally I would turn my iron on and off all the time, which if you sew a lot is simply annoying.
There is also an extra steam button under the handle, which is perfect for those stubborn creases. It is also possible to use it in an upright position, for example shirts or coats on hangers, or curtains.
It is also easy to de-calc, the steam station will tell you. And you simply remove the knob and collect the water. It is as simple as that.
I have been using this steam generator for a few months now and I really can say I love it. I know it is really expensive and I if you only iron know and then I don’t think it is worth it. But if you do iron a lot and want to make your life a little easier this is the one for you for sure.
I give this product 7/7
