Simple, light and impressive results,
This review is from: Philips GC7521/02 Instant Care Steam Generator Iron, 2400 Watt - Blue (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This iron is certainly impressive. We have used steam generator irons before and they generally give good results but this iron is a dramatic improvement for us in a number of ways:
Speed is drastically increased over our previous iron - we reckon a 30% improvement (which is remarkable).
This is a lot lighter than our previous iron, so much easier to use (although as always quite difficult to lug about with water in it).
Filling up is simple - just lift the flap and you are off - no undoing cumbersome 'hot water bottle' type pressurized dongles.
There are a few minor things to point out:
The instructions are woefully inadequate - think of a comic book about an iron.
The steam generator was quite erratic to start with, but has settled down and is excellent now.
It is quite difficult to empty water out when you are done, and heavy to carry about with water in it.
However, the above are all very minor complaints and I must say that I have been very impressed overall with the quality of this iron.
