Thank god ironing is now easier
Good buy. Ironing is now easier. Saves time. Can remove the water tank to refill. The water lasts for the amount of ironing i have. No need tom add water for the entire ironing lasting more than 2 hours. The only thing i don't like is at the end of the cord, where it connects to the iron there is a plastic cover which is difficult to insert the cord..
Thank You Phillips!
Phillips I just want to say THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! For finally making a steam station that doesn't "think" for itself... I sew couture garments and need a reliable iron that allows me to dictate what type of fabric I am using and how much steam it requires and when...I have owned and loved many many phillips models in the past and when I had to upgrade there wasn't an iron like this in sight and I couldn't get the same model I had before because it was discontinued...say what?. my motto "if it ain't broke don't fix it!!!" And I think it applies to this model GC7710/20... found only in myers...why I don't know, it should be everywhere... I thought was going to have to pay 500.00 and Bargain got it half price... much cheaper than the mistake I made below...
Please keep this in your available line or make a suitable semi pro iron steam station for us seamstresses.... when I couldn't find a model in the Phillips range to suit my needs I was forced to go to a brand I never used before as it had the features I needed and ended getting a braun carestyle which was rubbish... I took it back to point of purchase and got my money back after only 6 months as it started spitting all over my customers garments... again THANK YOU!!!
Myer was clearing this out and I managed to get it for $199. I see theyve put it back to $499 since. Bargain.
I was considering a Bosch but decided I didnt want to spend so much, its an iron after all.
I like that i can remove the water tank to refill. The water lasts for the amount of ironing i have.
The one thing i dont like is at the end of the cord where it connects to the iron there is a plastic cover which covers the end of the cord. I find this is rough and sometimes rubs on the under of wrist as I am holding the iron. But actually it isnt a big problem nor does it bother me every time. Its true, for some things you dont have to turn over to iron both sides, but i do for some.
Im pretty happy with it and hopefully that will continue. Im not sure I would spend $500, in fact, i know I wouldnt, but for around $200 when some irons can cost nearly that, its worth it.
