    Automatic shut off when iron is left unattended
    The automatic shut off function automatically switches off your steam generator iron if it has not been used for a few minutes. This saves energy and gives you peace of mind.

    Carry lock for safe and easy transport
    Lock your iron securely to the base station for easy carrying around the house and to reduce the risk of accidentally touching the hot soleplate.

    Easy and efficient descaling system for lasting performance
    Regular descaling protects your iron, extends its lifetime, and ensures the best steam performance. Our exclusive Easy De-Calc Plus system collects limescale continuously with an indicator light and audio signal to tell you when it needs emptying. Simply remove the plug and let the water and scale particles flow out.

    Intelligent automatic steam for faster, easier ironing
    DynamiQ smart sensor knows exactly when and how the iron is moving, delivering powerful steam where you need it most – for easier ironing and faster results.

    Large detachable water tank for easy refilling
    1.8-liter transparent tank gives you up to 2 hours of continuous use. When the water tank is empty, you will be reminded by the indicator light and you can refill easily at any time under the tap through the large filling door.

    Light weight and comfortable iron to handle
    The iron is amazingly light and comfortable to handle, gliding easily and reducing wrist strain. Its minimal weight also makes it easy and effective for vertical steaming of curtains and hanging clothes.

    OptimalTEMP technology, no temperature settings required
    Iron everything from jeans to silk without adjusting the temperature. Thanks to OptimalTEMP, no dial or settings are needed. So there’s no more pre-sorting the laundry, or waiting for the iron to heat up and cool down. You're ready for any fabric, anytime

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously I was skeptical but I am CONVERTED I honestly was so excited to be selected to try out this iron. I saw the RRP and thought gosh who would spend that on an iron. But can I say this to me is no iron. We have shirts we were going to toss as they never ironed and this breezes through them with no issues. It’s super light weight meaning you can iron for hours and still comfortable. The fact I am not checking settings and nervous if I’m going to destroy a expensive garment is amazing and I honestly can not recommend this iron enough it is worth every single cent it’s worth! I am truely converted and can not sing it’s praises enough [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This iron does not remove creases I recently purchased a GC9681/80 and it is vastly inferior to the iron it replaced (and 5 times the cost). I'm unsure if the unit I received is defective but it seems never to become hot enough to remove creases in cotton shirts and takes twice as long as my old iron to achieve a lesser result. The unit generates enormous amounts of steam but this seems to do little to remove creases from my shirts. There are so many potential positives to this iron; it has a very attractive design, has loads of clever features, and is so light and comfortable to use, but these positives all pale into insignificance as it is unable to achieve the one result an iron needs to achieve, crisp wrinkle free garments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, stylish, stress free! This steam iron is nothing short of amazing. It’s super easy to use, tackles tough creases with little effort and looks insanely sleek. The steam takes care of uniform pleats in seconds with little to no effort on my part. The intuitiveness means I can iron any ironable fabrics without burning them... and lord knows I get distracted easily and I don’t need to stress about burning my clothes or setting my ironing board on fire. It’s a must have for anyone who hates ironing because it makes it so easy and, dare I say it, fun. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Having used previous steam station irons,I find this iron exceptional.Its very light to hold,not having to change the temperature setting for different fabrics is easy and time saving,glides easily on all fabrics.The 1.8 litre detachable water tank is great.Overall I think Philips has excelled with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glides over clothes Having not been able to iron at all as I was just hopeless at setting temperatures right I've found using the Philips PerfectCare Elite Plus Steam super easy to use! I loved that I didn't have to control the temperature settings and could iron a whole basket with no need to refill! The super light weight handle made it a breeze to glide over clothes and the constant steam was great for my dresses! I couldn't recommend a better iron! Its a must have in every home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic !! At last there is an iron that does what it says, I am thrilled to bits Its light to use, a lot quicker as you are not going over the same area 3-4 times , heating time is quick and I love love that if you leave it on your clothes or ironing board it turns off and doesn't burn Yes its a lot of money for an iron, but how much do we spend on clothes They only thing that can top this is a maid that does the ironing for you It will be interesting to see how many years I get out of this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic features - love it! I've wanted a steam iron for ages but wasn't sure if the cost was worth it. I finally took the plunge and I'm so happy I did! The Elite Plus is easy to use, fast to warm up and makes all of my ironable clothes look amazing. From my husband's cotton shirts to my silk blouses, I've had no issues with water marks, risk of burns or running out of steam. I am totally converted!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such great technology I love how easy it is to use this iron and how versatile it is! Whether I want to flat iron or just steam my clothes to freshen them up it's just so easy I use to hate ironing and sometimes I would end up with tiny burnt spots but this has never happened with this iron. Also the water capacity is brilliant and let's me do a huge amount without refilling [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
