Product Description

Product Description

Up to 5 Bars of Steam Pressure
Five bar steam pressure
Great results, minimum effort--endless, powerful steam with 1.4 litre water tank

Powerful yet surprisingly compact, this ironing system produces non-stop, high-pressure steam, making ironing fast and easy. Thanks to the 1.4 litre detachable water tank, you can iron for hours without interruption.

Up to five bars of steam pressure

Double your ironing speed with pressurised steam. Pressurised steam penetrates deep into fabrics, making your ironing easier and faster.

Continuous steam up to 120 g/m
120 g/minute continuous steam
Continuous steam up to 120 g/m

The Philips GC8323/02 has continuous steam output up to 120 g/min thanks to the small amounts of water that are pumped into the boiler each time, for perfect and fast crease removal. The optimal vent pattern gives the best steam distribution on the fabric for best results.

Steam boost up to 180 g/min

The steam boost function provides an extra-powerful shot of steam up to 180 g/min to easily remove even the most stubborn creases.

SteamGlide Soleplate

1.4 Litre Water Tank

1.4 litre water tank

To make ironing effortless, you need a lot of steam. High steam output means a lot of refilling. This iron's extra-large 1.4 litre water tank reduces the need for refilling. Steam is forced through the hose into the iron under high pressure. (This means the whole iron becomes hot, so be careful when you are handling the iron).

Lightweight

The Philips GC8323/02 iron is only 1.2 kg, making ironing easy, comfortable and effortless.

SteamGlide soleplate

The SteamGlide soleplate is Philips' premium soleplate. It has a ceramic-based coating which means it offers great scratch resistance, excellent gliding on all types of fabric, and is easy to clean.

SteamGlide Soleplate
Calc clean function
Anti-calc Tablets
Anti-calc tablets
Eco setting

Save 20% energy and 40% water consumption by selecting the eco setting. The eco setting offers the most energy efficient way to obtain perfect ironing results.

Calc clean function

The calc clean function removes scale build-up and impurities from the iron. Regular calc cleaning is important to keep your iron functioning optimally with good steam output, especially if you are using hard water from the tap to fill the iron. If you see scales or white particles coming out of the iron, scale may have accumulated inside the steam tank. To clean the steam tank, calc clean by following the process in the instruction manual. If this happens frequently, you may need to calc clean (by rinsing the steam tank) more often than once a month.

    Previously had a Morphy Richards Steam Generator which packed up after 2 years and just out of warrenty so not happy about having to replace. Went for the Philips following a family recommendation. First one was delivered timely but when I set it up to use, it spewed steam from the base unit and went red hot all over. I though it was going to set fire to my dressing table and it certainly took the varnish off. Called Philips and was advised to get a replacement as it had probably been dropped in the warehouse and the seals had been damaged.

    TIP- if you get one. Don't put it on a good table when you first try it in case you get the same problem. My table is ruined.

    Contacted Telephones Online on Amazon Marketplace and they were very good at arranging for a replacement to be shipped and the damaged one collected at the same time. No problems at all. Tried the second one, tentatively, but this time it worked. And, I am impressed with the results.

    The Philips is far better than the Morphy Richards was. Both are noisy as I think any Steam Generator is, but this is noisy in short bursts rather than every time you want steam. I don't find it too bad though and still iron while the kids are in bed on the same floor. It halves the time it takes to iron and the results are much straighter clothes than I could ever manage with a normal iron. I like the switch that enables you to keep steam on constantly as well as having a button underneath that you can keep pressed. I do knock the constant steam button while I'm ironing as it is very close to my fingers and it turns off and on in error but easily corrected.

    This Philips is a replacement for a 3 year old Tefal that went BANG.
    Philips GC8323/02 Steam Generator Ironing System
    This Philips iron has a detachable HUGE water tank - I think this is its main bonus point.
    (Tefal had a small integrated tank)

    The steam blast at 5bar and 2 selections is great.
    (Tefal was limited in burst pressure)

    I do feel - although have not tried - the 100% steam ON function would work
    (Tefal could do this but would get tired and give up)

    It doesn't iron any better than my old Tefal though... so is it overkill to have swanky high pressure boost? The theory is that the steam can penetrate better.

    That ends the good news I'm afraid. Considering there's at least 3 years worth of product improvement/development - that's not enough considering the downsides!

    First off, there's no way to strap down the iron - so it could be pulled/knocked off the cradle easily.
    (Tefal had a clip & you could carry the iron/base all in one)

    The cradle is not a perfect fit and the ergonomics means the iron sits on the base with room for lateral movement.
    (Tefal fitted easily and snugly)

    The pumping action to take water from the tank into the steam gen is so loud and noisy, my 2 yr old cried when he first heard it. It is so bad that the iron rattles to and fro on the base!!!!
    (Tefal had steam gen only 3bar but no noise whatsoever associated with any pumping at all)

    The steam trigger under the handle is not sensitive enough which means it needs a good squeeze (gets harder the hotter the iron gets).
    (Tefal iron was easy to use).

    Having been warned about the loud noises generated by this machine I was determined not to panic, but very nearly didn't make it! However, the results are dramatically better than the dead 35 year old model it replaces and I am delighted with it.

    Things have finally settled down in the sense that the Tefal Turbo Pro Express Plus GV8460G0 5.5 Bar Steam Generator, Anti-Calc, 1.8 Litre Water Tank that Amazemi sent in place of the Phillips I had ordered is very good and, at the moment, we are perfectly satisfied with it. So, thanks to Amazemi, we got a satisfactory iron quickly.Tefal Turbo Pro Express Plus GV8460G0 5.5 Bar Steam Generator, Anti-Calc, 1.8 Litre Water Tank

    Purchased this steam generator after looking around for a good deal. This has certainly proved to be an excellent buy, makes the ironing a doddle! and the price was exceptional, with lots of retailers wanting over £200.00.The tank is easy to remove and fill, and lasts for an exceptionally long time. Really glad you can wrap the cord around the base for storage. Excellent delivery from Amazon, and all round good service from start to finish.
