A true performer

I have been ironing a lot since I bought this iron, it makes the whole ironing process better and I love using it, the cord is long and the iron glides on the mp;clothes and it light and I am not tired even after an hour of ironing all the shirts in my household for 3 males, it is a true performer and a good buying decision.

It is a great performer

I am happy I made the decision to buy this iron, it glides n my clothes, everything is ready and ironed within minutes, the fold s and wrinkle disappear at a stroke of an iron. I would recommend this iron it is a real performer. the cord is super long and it is very comfortable to use.

Hi Sue, Thanks for sharing your positive experiences with the Performer Plus here. We're delighted the iron has been working so well for you. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team.

Very odd burn smell left on my cloths

Every time I use this iron my cloths stick of burnt smell. I've checked the unit over and can't see any issues but maybe deep inside. Took back to the store but as it worked for them they refused to refund but got it swapped. The new one doesn't smell but it's not as nearly as hot as the first one! Not happy

Like it a lot

Great iron. Doesn’t leak water on to clothes. Steam is powerful enough to remove wrinkles from cotton business shirts. Water capacity is good. Spray works well and iron glides over clothes easily of all material types. Large base won’t sit into the iron holder on the ironing board. Only criticism is the length of cord. Could be longer.

Hello Clint, thank you for sharing your experience with the Performer Plus here with us.

Thanks to your honest opinions we are able to get more insight on how we can improve our products and services. Thank you! Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Really terrific iron

Like another reviewer said, they ALL start to leak after a while! So, I looked at all the reviews and after seeing some great reviews, I decided to try it. WELL, It is a KILLER iron. If you can say that about an iron, that is. The steam is great and even though it is larger than I thought, it is very well balanced, the retractable cord is very easy to use, I like how you put in the water for the steam...I just like everything about this iron. The controls are very easy to use and I like how the fabric type is lit up on the handle so you know exactly what temperature you are using while ironing. Very happy with my choice

Crisp Clothes

Ironing my clothes is so much faster with this Phillips Asur Performer Plus. I love it! It's so easy to fill and refill the steam compartment. It heats up really quickly and has a great controlled temperature. Its not too heavy or light and really glides on the clothes for a fast ironing experience.

Best Iron

Best iron to use for my most hated household chore. Streams through a basket of ironing in no time. Heats up quickly, great temperature control.
Ease of use, not too heavy, easy to use, temperature gauge very accurate ample steam. The water spray feature is very good too.

Perfect helper

I love this new iron that I purchased for myself. I feel that it is such a great helper and I am ironing my clothes much faster. I like that is easy to use, it is easy to refill and steam compartment is easy to handle. The temperature is easy to regulate as well and It looks like it is almost impossible to burn anything as even on the highest setting it is still gentle on the clothes.

Hey there, Emma. Great to hear the iron has become your perfect helper! :) What a nice compliment. We really appreciate the fact you've taken the time to share this here. We wish you all the best, and take care for now. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Great iron, has been very reliable

Heats up very fast, temp control seems good, steam works well, sprayer works well. Some polyester (I think) melted to it and won't come off but I think that'd happen to any iron. Also find that the steam function doesn't run low even when being used a lot. Some irons the steam runs out while it heats up.

Phillips iron is pure junk

One of the worst irons ever used. It lasted barely 18 months as the heating element quit working. The power light would flicker but the iron refused to heat up. The iron also a tendency to cut off without heating to the maximum and also sprang a water leak.Never buy any Phillips product again. As is is out of warranty I could not get a refund or have it fixed.

Only one fault

Only one fault when you grab the handle your fingers touch the heat dial and move it. Other than that I like it.
I had a Phillip iron previously so went with slightly upmarket model. Today is the first time I have used it. Maybe this should be looked at.

It’s a Terrible iron. Hot water poured out of it and it scalded my foot. The fabric was saturated and I had to hang it back out on the line. It should be recalled. I took it back to the shop and bought a different brand. I am very disappointed with this product.

Leaks badly

Just purchased late Dec and turned on for 1st time today. Water leaks everywhere through sole plate regardless of settings. Not good at all. I've tried emptying it and starting again but doesn't seem to matter what I try water leaks out onto clothes. Using without water currently and it's taking forever to iron.

Hi Nate, Thanks for sharing your experiences here. We're sorry to hear that they weren't the best ones, though.

Awful, leaks badly

I bought this iron on 23rd December, used it first time on 26th December. Heated up OK then water pored out of the bottom of the sole plate. Took iron back to store they replaced it with an identical unit. This new one leaks water badly while ironing. Will never buy a Phillips Azur again.

A good iron at a reasonable price..

When I was looking for a new Iron, I found out that there were such a wide selection for choice. I decided on the Philips Azur because I had use Philips before and found them to be reliable. I like the design and it heats up rather quickly about 2 mins and the temperature has an automatic control which switches itself off when it gets too hot. The steam function works well and it has a de-calcium cleaning function which I didn’t find on my old Iron. Although it suppose to have a non stick plate, I found it to slightly stick to certain fabric. It also has a steam boost function for vertical steaming which I found help for suits or trousers. This Iron is also designed to use with tap water but faster scale build-up may occur. Overall, it’s a very good Iron and I would recommend it and it’s around $100 which is a reasonable price.

Auto shut down function

I bought this Philips GC4519 Iron few days ago and tested the auto-off function. My old iron is working perfecting but doesn't got the auto shut down function. My teen kids started using this but very frequently they forget to pull out the power plug. There were few near misses the house get fire as well. So, for that reason I went and bought this auto off iron. Bit disappointing, i am not very confident that this function really working. Few seconds after the iron left idle, the blue light (on the handle of the iron) lit up keep blinking for ever ( left it for 1/2hr didn't stop). And also the heat of the iron still high (after all 1/2hr) and the heat is easy to burn thin cloths and if it leave further could get fire as well. My confusion is blinking blue light for ever is normal and why the heat doesn't drops when the power shut down?. Wonder anyone experienced this? I haven't tested the steam function (any leaks etc.) I do not like the steam spray button on the bottom of the handle as it get pressed every time hold the handle.

Hi Magmagee, thanks for taking the time to review the GC4519/30 steam iron. We regret to hear that you don't have much confidence in the auto shut-off feature of the appliance. We're not sure how long it should take for the iron to cool down, so we'd like to ask our product specialists for more information about this. Our colleagues might prefer to contact you directly, so it would be very helpful if you could share your full name, email address, phone number and home address in a reply to our private message.

Worst. Iron. Ever.

Thought I'd get great performance from the most expensive iron in stock, I was completely mistaken. No steam, won't even iron a crease from a t-shirt on the highest temp setting! Purchased to replace an iron I had been using for years after the cord was damaged & did not do my research. I'm so disappointed that I've just written my first review ever!!!

Smooth ironing, very nice to handle

I have owned a couple of these and they are very reliable. The only reason I have purchase another is that they were on sale at a very good price and thought a spare would be handy rather than pay for one when required.Heats up very fast and steam is strong

How to clean water tank?
1 answer
Hi Scotty, Thanks for submitting your question here. :) Do you like you GC4517? To clean the water tank, you can try to: 1) Fill the water tank half way with hot water and shake it carefully. 2) Empty it and rinse well with fresh water (do not use detergent). This is the only way to clean the inside! Hope it helps. Kind regards, The Philips Australia team

I love my Phillips Azur steam iron but today it keeps turning off. It has a light under the steam control lever, the left side says heating and the right automatic. I have moved house & lost my instruction book, could you send me a copy, please. I would really like your help as soon as possible, thank you.
