Alison, Highland Retired

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Huge quantities of steam if required. Ironing seems faster..
Bad points:
Will probably have to replace trusty old ironing board due to weight and size of carrier. Also need to open window due to whole room steaming up.

Manufacturer's Description

Powerful yet surprisingly compact, this ironing system produces non-stop, high-pressure steam, making ironing fast and easy.

Fast and powerful ironing

The Philips GC8340/02 steam generator has 2400 watts of power and up to five bars of steam pressure for fast ironing, so you can double your ironing speed. Pressurised steam penetrates deep into fabrics, making your ironing fast and easy, even on difficult fabrics. The iron features continuous steam output of up to 120g/minute thanks to the small amounts of water that are pumped into the boiler at a time, for perfect and fast crease removal. It also features up to 210g/minute steam boost for tough wrinkle removal so you can tackle even the most stubborn creases, and vertical steam for crease removal in hanging fabrics. The iron has variable steam settings and only takes two minutes to heat up until it’s ready to use.

Steam tip for hard-to-reach areas

The Philips GC8340/02 steam generator’s steam tip with elongated steam slots ensures that steam easily reaches into all those tricky places such as pockets, button areas and small parts of children’s clothes.

Endless, powerful steam with 1.4 litre water tank

To make ironing effortless, you need a lot of steam. But high steam output usually means a lot of refilling. An extra-large water tank reduces the need for refilling. Thanks to this iron’s huge 1.4 litre water tank, you can iron for up to three hours without having to refill. The water tank is detachable so it’s easy to fill under the tap or empty into the sink. This iron is suitable for use with tap water.

Comfortable ironing

This lightweight ironing system is comfortable and easy to use. It features Philips’ premium soleplate SteamGlide, which is scratch-resistant, easy to clean and offers perfect gliding on all types of fabric. The iron has a 1.7m hose with 180 degree swivel cord freedom and a hose clip for neat and compact storage. It only weighs 1.2kg, making ironing easy and effortless for everyone.

Easy de-calc

Permanent anti-calc tablets inside the iron delay the formation of scale build-up, ensuring better protection for your Philips ironing system. The clever iron also reminds you when it’s time to perform a calc clean.

Reduce energy consumption

By selecting the GC8340/02’s eco setting, the most energy-efficient way to obtain perfect ironing results, you save 20% energy and 40% water consumption. So you can reduce your energy bills and do your bit to help protect the environment while you save time and effort with your ironing.
