A perfect Iron
Its a very good iron. No complaints so far. Temperature adjustment is so good.
Requires less steam and is really efficient. I would recommend using it. A perfect for a small family.
Takes 4 times longer and go through lots of water
My low cost Breville SS2010 manual iron died from 2010 on the weekend. Thought I will do the right thing and buy a good quality iron for my wife to shorten the time she needs to iron my shirt and pants.
This iron definitely produce more steam then the Breville. On max setting we nearly have to top the water up after every shirt as it takes 4 times longer to iron then our old iron. It doesn't glide as much as we would like and being heavier, it doesn't help. The creases takes multiple runs over and pressing down on the iron before it is removed. The wife said its not hot enough which I understand but I would of thought the steam would do a better job to remove the crease then the hot iron.
This iron does a good job but I am disturbed by he fact that mine noticeably
vibrates with a sort of ticking noise when I iron. Does this happen to other users?
Should I take it back to the dealer?
Purchased in January 2019.
So far, the iron works well. I have only had it for a few days. It has less buttons and dials compared to other irons. I guess it is more like an electronic iron... a smart iron. It is suppose to detect the different kinds of fabric and how much heat and steam it produces. When I use it, it makes a vibration and noise that reminds me of the pool creepy crawler.
It is a heavier iron than most. But you only really notice it when you pick it up. When it is down and gliding over your clothes, it's no problem. But I don't spend that much time picking it up in comparison. The only real gripe I have is the red button that is located under the handle. It sits where I need to put my fingers. It's hard not to press it if I have my finger over it. But I try and position my hand just behind it. Would be great if it could have moved to the top, and the menu button could be moved elsewhere, maybe slightly further back.
Price: I got a huge shock how much irons cost these days. Maybe I just bought a cheap iron years back, or maybe irons weren't that expensive. But now, most decent irons are over $100. You can still get irons under $30, but not sure how well they work and for how long.
I did my research mainly through product review site. And it was really between this one and the Braun Texstyle 7. But only for a few dollars difference, after bartering and the current $50 cashback from Phillips, I decided to go with the smart iron.
If anything changes in the future, I will write another review. But so far am happy.
Very happy, great iron
I initially felt that it was a bit heavy but since using it a few times, I don’t even notice it. Love that it senses how much heat is required for different fabrics and the shut off when left on is a bonus. One thing I’m not happy about though is that I keep getting wet spots on my clothing when using the IQ setting. Not sure if I should be using a different setting to alleviate this.
Just bought the Phillips PerfectCare Azur Elite iron and I love it. For an iron it is expensive but well worth the money. Lots of constant steam when ironing and you can go from ironing jeans straight to a silk blouse as the iron senses the material and reduces temperature automatically so no need to wait for iron to cool down. It also has a calcium indicator and a trap to remove and hard water deposits. Be aware though that the iron is heavy, I like the weight but many might find it too heavy.
ALMOST fun to iron!
The perfect weight - not too heavy yet heavy enough to iron out wrinkles without bearing down on it. Glides smoothly. I got some gunk on it from spray starch and it cleaned right up, using a sponge dipped in warm water with dishwashing liquid. Easy to fill and easy to check how much water is in the iron for steam/spray, too. Several settings. I use the highest - Linen - on my 100% cotton sheets. It's almost fun to iron with this baby.
Easy to use light iron.
Clothes iron easy no creases. Only feels like i run iron over clothes and done. Also did not need to iron both sides of clothes. Worth buying.You don,t need to change temp control as you iron different fabrics.My mum found easy to use as well and she is 83 years old.
Finally, a great gutsy iron that does not LEAK
Fantastic iron, I love it, everything about it is great, in particular it's ability to be able to iron the fabric 'linen'... no more spraying to damp down fabric, no leaking, quick to get to temp and no creases. Pricey but I would have taken it back in a heartbeat ... all in all, less inexpensive when you put together all the dollars I wasted on irons in the $30-$120 bracket that leak, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
This iron was good, to be honest I would have kept it, unfortunately it is heavier than their previous irons ( I like a heavy iron) unfortunately this was too heavy, which caused my arm to ache every time I used it. I don’t need an iron that’s going to give me pain as I suffer enough without that.
I wish it has a meter longer cord
Great iron in tearms how well it strams BUT why manufacturers decide to save on length if the cord?!
Also, I found its a bit difficult to attach iron on lables for my child clothes but issue solved.
It takes a bit longer to hear up compare to all my old irons but its not a problem in a long run.
I’d definitely recommend this iron as its still one of the best I’ve used so far.
Don’t let user ignorance deter you
I really believe after reading many reviews that are negative about products are in fact people who do not really understand how products are meant to work. Grant it yes you do sometimes get faults. But this iron is a dream. I make most of my clothes and I find this iron is great. The features are fantastic, Calc removal system yes yes yes. I would recommend it
The best iron
Can not burn any product able to be ironed,
No settings needed to be set, it works it out.
Nothing can burn & stick to the iron
Steam works well
Safety cut out if left on .Or left on ironing board
Gone through heaps of irons this is the best
So easy to use, no change of temperature and no need to keep finger on steam button
Heats up in about 2 minutes. I have ironed a pair of linen trousers immediately followed by ironing a silk blouse. No time waiting for temperatures to adjust and no dials to alter. I don't even have to keep my finger on the steam button when ironing- though did have to re -watch the instructional video to remember this. My husband has always done the ironing as he enjoys it and is so much better than me BUT this iron is so easy that I may start ironing again. No heavy steam generator to pick up. Our existing steam generator still works but having seen a demo of this, I had to have it and am so pleased I did. Steam function is A1 and clothes are dry not damp after ironing.
