What is OptimalTEMP technology?

Optimal moisture and a heat of 130 degrees is required to remove all creases and iron effectively. PerfectCare, with its OptimalTEMP technology, offers the combination of high steam pressure with one optimal temperature that is safe for use on all ironable fabrics.

OptimalTEMP has been made possible thanks to the cyclonic steam chamber and the control processor. The cyclonic steam chamber ensures that, at a gentle temperature, consistently high steam can be delivered at the push of a button, where other steam generators at the same temperature would leak or deliver little to no steam. The control processor keeps the soleplate at a consistent temperature at all times, which makes it safe to use on all ironable fabrics, never being too hot or too cold.

Earlier irons used a hot soleplate alone as a means of removing creases and pressing garments. Later, the addition of a steam feature allowed for ironing with greater ease and speed, but required different temperature settings for different fabrics. Different temperature settings also interfered with the iron's ability to deliver steam. The higher the temperature, the more steam was possible, but the lower the temperature, the poorer the steam output.

Because of this, all irons and steam generators work with a soleplate of up to 260 degrees to generate enough steam. Furthermore, the soleplate serves only to press fabric, not to remove creases, steam is most efficient for this job.

Features

Philips
OptimalTEMP Technology

1) Soleplate temperature is maintained at all times, so you can't burn your fabrics.
2) High temperature and high pressure steam reaches deep into the fabric layers to loosen and smooth out deep creases in thick materials such as linen and pure cotton.

Philips
Approved by independent experts

This technology has been tested and approved by independent textile experts on the most delicate fabrics like silk, cashmere, wool and polyester.

Philips
No more scorched clothes

This iron promises to never burn your garments again, safely rest this iron flat down on the ironing board or clothing, rather than the heel rest, to reduce any risk of repetitive strain on your wrist.

Philips
Powerful pressurised steam for 2x faster crease removal

Pressurised steam is technically measured in bars of pressure. The higher the bar pressure the more powerful the steam comes out of the soleplate to penetrate deeper into the fabric layers. This steam generator creates 5 bars of steam pressure, up to 120g per minute of continuous steam and a 220g steam boost ideal for getting through larger ironing loads in half the time.

Philips
Vertical Steam

The iron can be used vertically and the steam is powerful enough to be used to iron out creases from curtains or hanging clothes for example suit jackets or dresses that might need a refresh.

Philips
Maximum steam in two minutes

No more waiting for your iron to heat up, PerfectCare has a quick heat-up time and is ready to use in just 2 minutes, even the powerful steam. Turn it on, prepare your ironing area and get ready to go.

Philips
SteamGlide Soleplate

Philips SteamGlide soleplate is durable, scratch resistant and provides a superior glide on all fabrics for effortless ironing. The protective material on the plate makes it scratch-resistant so your iron can stay new for longer.

Philips
Refill any time

The 2.2 litre water tank gives over 3½ hours of ironing with fewer refills. The XXL water tank is fully visible so you can see the level of water easily.

Philips
Power

Power efficient at 2400 watts, this steam generator uses the optimal amount of energy for the desired task.

Philips
Safety Auto Off

This iron shuts off automatically when left unattended after 2 minutes, when left flat on its soleplate or after 3 minutes when stood up on its heel rest.

Philips
Convenient Carry Lock

Now it's easier to carry your iron with no risk of the iron slipping off the base. The iron locks securely to the steam generator, so you can carry your appliance easily around the house.

Philips
Cord storage

No more trailing cables, 2 cord storage compartments housed on the side of the base provide a safe place to tidy the steam hose and power cable away.

Philips
Easy de-calc process and calc clean reminder

Easy De-Calc, hassle-free and effective calc removal to extend the life of your steam generator. Open the Easy De-Calc outlet on the side of the steam generator base to remove any left over water. This process takes less than a minute of easy maintenance. The reminder light indicates when to carry out the de-calc process every 10 hours of use to extend the lifetime.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Although looks are not really that important in irons this iron is navy and white and looks sleek and elegant. It is true that the whole unit is larger than a normal iron but I don't think there is that much difference for storage purposes. There is an easy to operate button lock to hold iron firmly in the unit for carrying purposes. The large water reservoir can hold 2.2 litres more than enough for my ironing needs and I would think it would cope with much larger needs than mine. The unit itself has 3 buttons with lights.
1. On/Off
2.Eco which can save energy
3. Easy Decalc which indicates when descaling is required. There is an Easy Decalc knob which makes descaling easy.
The iron is very light and the soleplate glides easily and smoothly over the clothes. The button for steam is on the underside of the handle just where your hand rests when ironing, There is no temperature control on the iron because it uses Optimal Temp technology. The technical details escape me all I know is that I ironed wool blends, cotton and cotton blends, and polyester with no adjustments in temperature and great results. Another advantage of this technology is that the iron can be left to rest on the ironing board whilst getting other garments without burning the cover (a bad habit of mine). If the iron is left on for 10minutes without being used there is an automatic switch off.The steam supply hose can be wound round the unit when storing and electric cable is wrapped together and held with velcro.There is a comprehensive instruction manual. I should point out that I did not use the Eco mode as the manual advised that the Optimal Temp Mode gave best results. I have used steam generator irons before and loved them but for me this is the best one I have used. I would heartily recommend it.

I have to admit i was rather sceptical about this iron because of the price, but let me tell you it is worth every single penny.

It has a large 2.2 litre capacity tank which is easily filled, i was expecting a free measuring jug, but there isn't one included unfortunately.

Once filled up and the power button put on, it takes less than 60 seconds to heat up and you are ready to go.

I tried mine with a cotton tea towel, linen trousers, a cotton dress, a chiffon scarf and a silk skirt and against all of my doubts, it ironed them all with ease.

There was no creases left in any of the fabrics, no adjustments to be made, the iron glides over the clothes like butter, i was astounded if im completely honest with you.

Without a doubt the best iron i have ever had !!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've had the chance to try a few steam irons now through the Vine program, and this one comes out tops.

Firstly, appearance wise it's very nice. The colours are nice, and its not extremely heavy, huge or bulky, especially in comparison to my previous steam iron. It's easy to fill with water, it had a very handy pull out de scaler, and you can lock the iron in place. It also has a part to tuck the cord away into, genuis! I've never had a steam iron with this and it's extremely handy and tidy.

The last iron that Amazon Vine sent me was driving me crazy. It was just so loud. The first thing I noticed when using this iron is just how peaceful it is. I can steam away without sending my cat running fearing for her life, or having to turn the TV volume right up. I even once confused my previous iron with our flat buzzer, it was that loud.

One scary function of the iron is you don't, and can't, set the temperature. It does it by itself! Now I didn't quite trust this at first, but somehow, it really works. Because of this, you can even leave the iron flat down on the ironing board and it doesn't even burn it. It also has an automatic switch off which is brilliant. I'm the type who needs this function on my hair straighteners because I'll often forget about them so it's always a welcome feature.

This iron is really easy to use, there is not a multitude of buttons and settings that over complicate things, and the technology of self-adjusting itself is just amazing. I can't recommend this iron enough!

Verified Purchase
Having used regular irons for years and finding them heavy to use, easily becoming clogged up with scale which creates brown stains on the ironing board as well as your clothes or shiny patches, constantly needing top ups to be able to steam and generally being disappointed with their performance and results, I decided to take the plunge and get a Steam Generator Iron. WOW! why did I wait so long? this is an amazing machine, it took me less than half the time to whiz through the ironing pile, It's stylish in navy and white has a generous length of cable and hose, very easy to fill with a jug, no waiting for the temperature to cool/warm up for different items, steam enough to get out every crease in one hit, as it has 5 bar pressure etc, incredibly light weight and sleek as it has no extra water to worry about in the actual iron part and glides like a dream over all types of cloth. If your thinking of buying this then don't think anymore, just hit order, you won't be disappointed. The only drawback I can see is that it is obviously bulkier than a normal iron so may be tricky to store, but who cares it Fantastic! Philips Perfect Care Aqua Steam Generator Iron, 2400 Watt, Navy
