After a major drama a few months ago and by that I mean my ironing board collapsed and threw my iron at the floor, burning my living room carpet and then breaking my much-loved Philips Speedcare Iron I was feeling slightly bereft … madness I know but with ironing being one of my least favourite tasks and finally discovering something that actually cut my ironing time down I was worried I would be tied to the new ironing board once again!
On hearing my plight the fantastic folks at Philips sent me out a PerfectCare Pure Steam Generator Iron to see if this one was as good or better than the last one and with about 5 weeks worth of ironing winking at me every time I passed by it certainly was going to take some doing to clear the ironing back log so could this iron be as good as my last?
Taking it out the box I loved the look of the iron and really liked the position of the handle and the fact this iron came with the ability to tidy the cables!
This particular iron comes with several unique features that I found really helpful such as the automated temperature control so no more changing dials to different fabrics … initially this had worried me, but actually after all this time there has been no burnt items so it’s obviously far more intelligent than I had been being in charge of the temperature control!
The anti scaling cartridge that fits into this iron is pure genius in my book, we live in a very hard water area and this often in the past has left us with a massive amount of scaling and so something that will tackle the hard water before it becomes an issue is a bonus in my book!
This Philips PerfectCare Pure Steam Generator Iron has a bigger water tank than my previous one and since the temperature is automatic it has by far made my ironing hatred less vicious as now its done even quicker than before…. Now that’s perfect in my book!
