Philips GC4851/32 Azur Steam Iron - Purple by Philips

3.0 out of 5 stars Bad design., 2 Jun 2014
Totally impossible to see how much water it is holding. Guess work only.
Very flimsy water fill hatch, looks easy to break and had to re-insert it correctly from box.
Looks like this item has been designed for left-handed use.

On the plus side - quite heavy and does a great steam job. Just run a garden hose from the sink to the refill inlet?

4.0 out of 5 stars Just OK., 17 April 2014
Rather larger than I expected (I did measure compared to my usual bags) and require a large cup/mug. Best suited for my teapot.
Otherwise they are fine.
Why are these things so expensive? Too few makers/lack of competition?
I prefer the Simpli-Special (filters-4u).

3.0 out of 5 stars Repacked?, 17 April 2014
More expensive than buying individual 5x10x boxes, but no choice as all local stores are either out of stock or selling the "New improved version" (yep... less content - more watery...Yuck!).
These boxes were scuffed as if kicked around and appear to have been packed by hand as all the individual sachets looked as if they had been "clawed". Looks like "bankrupt/repackaged" stock to me. That's only MY impression.
I could smell the coffee from 20+ feet away before I even opened the Amazon box, suggesting the individual sachets had been crumpled/pummeled. Poor value.
Still, better than the "New" product.
