Good Morning Beauties! Today's blog post is about a product I am very excited to share with you and is a must have for all those domestic Gods and Goddesses out there.
The new *PerfectCare Elite Steam Generator Iron is said to be Philips best and most efficient steam generator iron yet and I must agree. The large solid base means it is stable and easy to set aside as a placeholder to hold the iron when you need a break from ironing. I find this particularly useful as the metal plate on our ironing board isn't particularly big and therefore more often or not an iron does not fit which makes things a bit tricky when you need to place it down. Alternatively, this iron has such advanced technology (mentioned below in more detail) you can actually comfortable leave the soleplate of this iron directly on your ironing board without causing burning which is brilliant.
When it comes to using this iron, it couldn't be more simple as not only does it come with easy instructions to follow but it is pretty intuitive though so it is quick to get started straight away. The iron itself is lightweight meaning it puts less strain on your wrist and arm and the size of the handle is perfect to grip it firmly but comfortably. Additionally, it has a safety auto off function which is a must have to me. I'm a worrier and always one of those people that will worry endlessly about leaving an appliance on whether it be the iron or my hair straigheners!
I have tried using this iron on a variety of different materials as seen in the pictures above (e.g denim, cotton, silk cashmere etc) and whatever it's up against this iron simply glides over the material removing creases effortlessly. I also love that you don't have to worry about temperature control as this iron does all that for you. The Advanced Smart Control Processor precisely controls the soleplate providing one perfect temperature setting for all frabrics, Phillips call this OptimalTEMP technology. This is amazing technology and completely removes any anxiety people have about what setting they should use to get perfect results and prevent burning fabrics. It is also easy to tell when the iron is ready for use as the light on top changes from flashing to solid light, it takes just two minutes so is perfect for those in a rush.
The PerfectCare Elite also allows for vertical steaming which is a great added bonus and would have been extremely useful for getting out those last minute creases from all our dresses on my wedding day... if only I had this then!
This Philips iron also comes with a variety of different settings which allows you to get the most out of your ironing whether it be 'Eco Friendly' if you are particularly conscious about our impact on the environment or 'Turbo' mode for fast ironing. It also holds a large amount of water, 1.8l to be precise so you don't have to spend too much time re-filing although this is very straightforward to do.
Don't forget to descale your iron regularly to prolong it's life, something which is super easy to do with this one thanks to the alert the iron gives you when it time for a good clean. You simply need to wait for your iron to cool and remove the water and limescale in a cup after removing the 'De-Calc' knob.
I really can't fault this product in any way and it is definitely the best iron I have ever used, even hubby is happy to get stuck in and do his share with this! It's easy to use, has great results, advanced technical and the design looks modern and sleek.
