5.0 out of 5 stars Next generation ironing, 19 Sep 2013
This review is from: Philips PerfectCare Expert GC9231/02 Steam Generator Iron - One perfect temperature, 310g Pressurised Steam Boost (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An iron is an iron. You switch it on, set the temperature and get to work. BUT NO! Women, your days of ironing dozens of shirts while the owner of them watches football may be numbered. It's time for the men to take over. Irons are no longer irons. They are no longer home appliances. Irons are now gadgets! With triggers!

This offering from Philips is a total revelation to me after years of cheap models. Ironing times have been reduced beyond all calculations. The claim is that no other iron is faster. BELIEVE IT. The world will never be the same.

#You DON'T have to worry about setting the temperature.

#Your ironing board won't burn if you leave the iron face down on it for too long. (What kind of magic is this anyway?)

#There's a lock that allows you to fix the iron onto its tank to ensure it never falls off, increasing child safety in the home.

#Continuous steam ensures no crease is going to outstay its welcome on your clothes.

#The cord is thick, long, of excellent quality and can be stored away in the base unit.

#There's an eco setting that uses reduces energy consumption but also debilitates many of the iron's superhero powers, so you won't find me going near it.

Ironing has long been a chore, a pain, a nuisance. For the first few sessions with this wonder it will become your new favourite hobby. Friends with inferior models will be mega jealous. Of course there's the small issue of the large price. You could buy an iron that costs a tenth of this and still get the job done - but nowhere near as quickly or with as much satisfaction. This crease destroyer makes your clothes and life better. If you can find a place in your budget for it, DO NOT HESITATE.
