3.7 from 60 reviews

Very pleased

Works perfectly. I mostly iron cotton, sometimes lighter fabrics. It slides over any fabric with ease and isn't heavy on the wrist. The iron is easy to use, heats up rapidly. It uses quite a lot of water because I have the steam button on high. I fill it up before every ironing session. Very easy to fill up and there's no leaks. I haven't cleaned it yet so I don't know how easy this iron is to look after.

Purchased in May 2019 at Target Australia.

It is ok

It does take a while to iron cotton clothes with it ans sometime it can not even remove the crinkles properly which is really disappointing from a brand like philips.

Thank you for your review, Rez. We're sorry to hear that the iron, whilst being good, hasn't quite exceeded your expectations. Your feedback is appreciated, and if you wish to discuss this further with us. Please know that you could give us a call on 1300 363 391. As we think the device should be able to remove crinkles, even from a bit thicker cotton. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Good and Light weight

This iron is light weight and performance is good. But I have observed that after some time it starts sticking on delicate cloth. Will recommend not to use steam option more often.

Hello Steward, Thank you for sharing your honest feedback here! We are happy to hear that you like the EasySpeed Steam iron. It is a pity that the sole sometimes get stuck on delicate fabrics. You can prevent this by lowering the temperature while ironing these types of clothing. It is also important to let your steam iron get cooled before using it on the fabric. If there are any questions or if you would like to speak to one of our colleagues, please do give us a call on 1300 363 391. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Good!

Have had this for 12 months now, works well. Have had no leaks or problems with it, despite dropping it once or twice. It gets all of our clothes flat.

That's great to hear, Laurie! We're glad that the device is still working properly. We wouldn't recommend dropping it, though. ;-) Many thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts and experiences. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

This is good

It works really well with different types of fabric, such as woollen, silk and cotton
Yes, it's very smooth and easy to use
I usually use that function to keep my clothes wet when I am flattening them.

Good Iron. Works without issue.

Good Iron. Works without issue. Heats quickly and well. Heat setting is graded and easy to use. spray and filling with water is easy. Haven't had any problems with wear or faults.

Purchased in March 2017.


Good until it stopped working properly

I bought this inexpensive iron in February this year because I had 2 frozen shoulders and it was the lightest iron I could find. It ironed well even without steam but now doesn't seem to be heating up properly. I will be taking it back to the store. Fortunately I no longer have frozen shoulders and can go back to my sunbeam iron

Hi there, Thanks for reviewing the EasySpeed Steam iron. We're glad to hear it was so helpful when you had frozen shoulders. What makes us even happier is that you're healed now. However, not heating up properly shouldn't be the case. If you still have the appliance, we advise you to reach out to us on 1300 363 391, and we'll look for a way to help. Hope to hear from you! Kind regards, The Philips Australia TeamHave now received a replacement from the Good Guys where I bought it. Hopefully this one will last longer. haven't used it yet but will comment again when I haveHi there, thanks for getting back to us. We're happy to hear that you've received a new EasySpeed iron from the retailer. We're not expecting you to run into issues with this iron as well, but in case that does happen, then we'll be here to assist. Enjoy the rest of your week! Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Good iron but short cord

This iron maintains its heat and has worked well on different settings. I’m keen to see how effective the calc clean function works.
My only complaint is that the cord is considerably shorter than our last Philips iron. We have had to add an extension cord just to have enough length to move comfortably along the ironing board.

Hi Michelle, Thanks for your feedback, we're glad to hear you're satisfied with this iron. We also appreciate you sharing your suggestion about the cord, we'll take in on board. We wish you all the best with your EasySpeed Steam Iron. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team.

You need this iron!

For some reason works much better than my old iron for getting those patches on tight. Works better than my old iron that I paid twice as much for. I miss the retractable cord of my old iron but I just roll the cord up and tuck it into the handle so it's not hanging down. The swivel cord makes it easy to keep the cord out of the way without repositioning the iron while in use. Would definitely recommend.

Hi there. Thank you for taking the time to write down your thoughts on the EasySpeed Steam. It's great to hear you would recommend it, as that means a lot to us, however we can imagine the cord situation isn't ideal. That's why we wanted to let you know we have a new accessory available called the cord holder: https://bit.ly/2zUvK1r. You can clip it onto your ironing board and let the cord glide through while ironing, making sure it stays out of the way. :-) As it is fairly new it's not available everywhere just yet, so if you need any assistance finding it please don't hesitate to get in contact with us: https://bit.ly/2wukcTf. Kind regards, the Philips Australia Team.

Dose ok job on cloths

Just moved out from parents and had to buy an iron for myself to do for job interviews. I almost burnt myself as it heats up soon as it's turned on so there needs to be a warrning on the box or iron. The steam is at best ok and dosent help that much

Hi there. Thank you for taking some time to write down your thoughts on your first iron. It's much appreciated! Please note the following Important Information Manual: https://philips.to/2JgQTqY. If there are parts on your iron that can get hot besides the soleplate, they have a symbol indicating this, it's the traingle shape with 3 swirls in there. If you have any questions or remarks, please feel free to get in contact with us. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Works perfectly.

It's easy to use, glides well, and steams adequately. I like the multi-dimensional cord attachment a lot. The only improvement I might suggest is a retractable cord, but only if the mechanism didn't add weight and size to the whole iron.That's exactly what I expected. Easily Useable and Flexible,Works perfectly.

WOW this Iron exceeded all my expectations . heats very fast does not stick, and very light to be used. not huge in size and can be stored easily anywhere. make sure you place some vinegar with the water and run it till empty from time to time to avoid blockage

Hi there, Thank you for sharing this review on the GC1021/40. We're glad to hear the Easyspeed steam iron is the perfect iron for you. :) Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team.

Decent

This worked great with almost everything, although sometimes i had to focus on certain areas for longer periods of time which is quite common! Have not tried extremely delicate clothing but on everyday cotton tee shirt there were no issues, overall you get what you pay for and definitely recommend :)

Hi there, thank you for the positive review. We are happy to know that you like your EasySpeed Steam iron. You can use the iron on delicate clothes, as long as the temperature is on a low setting. :) Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Perfect iron

I foolishly bought a cheaper brand than this and it was a waste of money. For one thing, it was too light weight so had to press down much harder. This iron has good weight in it, though that may be an issue for older people? It has had a lot of use with me and never let me down.

Makes ironing actually enjoyable

This iron is amazing, its made me actually enjoy ironing as its so easy to use. It is so good at getting wrinkles out and is such a 'smooth' glide. I don't find it to big or bulky.I have actually enjoyed ironing with this and am no longer leaving a huge ironing pile for weeks as its quick to heat up, and irons so quickly..... it's actually fun.

Love the Easy Steam, makes my ironing really easy

I love my new Easy Steam, the steam is very consistent, and made my iron glide over the wrinkles on my clothes and makes the iron very enjoyable to use. I love how it feels so light in my hands and very ergonomically made, it is gentle on clothes and I always make sure that I have the correct temperature suitable for the type of clothes that I iron.

Hi Ruby, Thank you for sharing your feedback on the Easyspeed Steam iron. We're very happy to hear you're enjoying it so much. Thanks again for sharing, we appreciate it. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team.

Works well for me

I am happy with the iron and I do most of the ironing at home, it glides on the fabrics and the steam makes everything wrinkle free fast. My husband, on the other hand, does not like the iron and says that it is not heavy enough for him, I like the iron it is light and easy to use.

Simple and Effective

Love the iron as it looks simple and the size is just fit to control. It’s easy to handle and use, the temperature is perfect as there’s a temperature control function, it can be able to iron different variety of clothes, it heats up quick and the price is resonable. (I bought it at half price)

Questions & Answers

Hi. I purchased a GC2145/29 iron 3 mths ago. This morning, whilst emptying the water from the tank, a small white nylon disc fell out. It is 16mm dia and has several small holes in it. Can you show (preferred) or explain where this small part belongs so I can put it back in the iron. Everything else about the iron is great. Thank you, Mick L

Where can I get a set of instructions that came with the iron? .
