    Well, what can I say? If I tell you that I bought this item last week and as soon as I got it I steamed (literally!) through 4 weeks - YES! 4 WEEKS - worth of ironing - in just 2 hours and actually enjoyed it that should tell you how brilliant this machine is!

    I actually HATE ironing and am ashamed to say that I usually iron as little as possible if I can get away with it, pulling things out of the ironing basket on a "need to wear" basis! However, after seeing my daughter with her new budget steam iron I decided to do some research for myself. And this is the one I decided upon. I'm so glad I did!

    You can get budget priced steam generating irons at a about a third of the price of this one which, Im sure, work well. However, my research made me realise the points that I personally needed. These are:

    1. Detachable water tank so I dont have to carry the whole thing to the sink to empty or fill
    2. Variable steam pressure - there are 4 settings for steam so ironing more delicate or lighter fabrics is a breeze!
    3. Mega shot of steam at 4.5bar pressure - WOW! This really gets the creases out of hard to iron cotton duvets and jeans without a hitch.
    4. Option to dry iron - no problem
    5. Minimum noise - the pump comes on only when needed for just a few seconds and is quite quiet - I had no problems listening to the radio and telly whilst ironing
    6. The iron itself is a great shape and makes it easy to get between buttons or do shoulders of shirts etc.
    7. Extra steam at the tip of the soleplate for those hard to reach places
    8. Very very large water capacity - 1.4 litres. It ran for the full 2 hours without needing to be refilled - brilliant!

    I consider myself something of an expert on irons! I run a guest house and tea room and have worked my way through many different makes and models. The tank size of this model means I am not constantly having to refill it. When the machine pumps water from the tank it takes only a short time without any realy interruption to ironing (something of a bug bear with the Tefal model I had). It's lightweight which is easy on the wrists when you have to do as much ironing as I do and the extra long cord from the iron to the main tank is very useful indeed (something my Polti didn't have).

    The sole plate glides easily over the fabric and the steam pressure is great for getting out stubborn creases (even for sheets which have been dried in the tumble dryer).

    I really do think this machine is well worth the money and I can't speak highly enough about it.

    I ordered it on on Saturday evening via Amazon and received it Tuesday - Really pleased.

    Philips Shanghai GC8220 Steam Generator with 1.4ltr detachable water tank 4.5 bar pressure

    My first ever review, so here goes.....

    Although a little bit more expensive, worth every penny. The best bits for me were the variable steam (4 choices, including no steam), and the button to 'lock' the steam, this enables you to switch off the steam very quickly - necessary for when rearranging clothes, also has a removable water tank so it is very convenient to refill. It is also ready to use in just a couple of minutes.

    Probably the only (tiny) negative is that it is a little heavier than a normal steam iron, but everything else more than makes up for it. This is almost my best purchase ever!

    I have had my Phillips GC8220 Steam System Iron for almost a year now. It was brilliant for the first few months or so but I noticed that the water tank was leaking. It started as a trickle and evenually the leak soaked through a well folded towel in next to no time. In my despair I sealed all the joints with stong adhesive glue. It did the trick and I am back ironing as happily as ever. Apart from the leak it does the job of ironing really well.

    I order this item on Wednesday and it was delivered on Thursday.

    After returning from holiday, I could not face the mountain of ironing, and was advised by my sister to get buy this stem generator. I am very pleased with the results as it has made life so much easier. Great product.

    This iron is amazing! It cuts your ironing time in half, I really hate ironing so I bought this after reading the reviews and I'm glad I did.
    My partner has some shirts that are murder to get the creases out-not with this iron! The end results are great.

    It's worth every penny, I'd thoroughly recommend it.

    I am sure there are people who enjoy ironing, it's just that I have never met them, so the object of the exercise when designing and manufacturing an ironing system must be to make the whole process as easy, uncomplicated and pain free as possible whilst producing outstanding results. Philips seem to have touched all the bases here, the grip is comfortable the "iron" is lightweight and glides smoothly over materials, it is armed with more intuitive controls, heat steam etc., than you could shake a stick at or will probably ever need. The easy to remove fill and replace water reservoir has more than enough capacity for even Marathon ironing sessions. All in all the Philips goes a long way to relieving ironing day blues.
