Product information "Philips GC7808/40 'Perfect Care' Steam Generator Iron | Purple/White"

Iron faster with 2 x more steam! Compact and lightweight, providing powerful continuous steam, the PerfectCare Compact steam generator iron makes fast work of all your ironing.

Powerful steam for ultimate crease removal

An ultra-fast ironing experience can be yours with revolutionary technology. The powerful and continuous steam tackles even tough creases, and thicker fabrics are smoothed out with ease and speed. Plus there's an extra steam boost if needed, perfect for vertical steaming or stubborn creases.

Go from ironing jeans to silk; no need to change temperature setting

With OptimalTEMP technology you'll no longer have to waste time changing temperature settings, waiting for the temperature to adjust or pre-sorting clothes. Iron all fabrics, from jeans to silk, with no burning guaranteed thanks to the perfect combination of temperature and continuous powerful steam.

Safe to leave the hot soleplate on the ironing board

Innovative OptimalTEMP technology guarantees no burning on any ironable fabric. As well as the reassurance this provides whilst ironing, it also means you can leave the hot iron soleplate directly on your cotton ironing board without causing any damage. This helps to reduce any discomfort to your wrists, as you won't need to lift the iron to and from its base as often.

Large water tank for longer continuous use

The water tank has a 1.5-l capacity, so you get the convenience of up to 1.5 hours of continuous use with no need to top up the tank. It's also transparent, so you can get a 360° view of the tank to easily see how much water you have left to continue creating steam efficiently. When you do need to refill, your steam generator iron has a large filling hole that allows you to easily fill the water tank under the tap, or alternatively with a jug or bottle at any time during ironing

Integrated easy-clean system for long-lasting performance

Regular descaling protects your iron and maintains steam performance. The Smart Calc-Clean system is an integrated descaling and cleaning function to extend the lifespan of your steam generator iron. The iron will remind you with both light and sound that cleaning and descaling is needed. Simply place your iron onto the Smart Calc-Clean container and start the process. It takes approx. 2 minutes for the dirty water and scale to be collected; your steam generator will beep once it's finished and ready to use again.

Tested and approved by independent textile experts

This iron is tested and approved by independent textile expert institutes, such as DWI, IWTO and Woolmark, for its excellent ironing performance. The Woolmark Apparel Care programme helps consumers to identify quality laundry products that are approved by The Woolmark Company for use on wool products. Philips, with its exclusive OptimalTEMP technology, is so far the only ironing brand to be certified with the Gold standard from Woolmark. You can be confident that our Woolmark-approved apparel care products are ideal for any wool garments.

Lightweight and compact size for easy storage

Thanks to revolutionary ProVelocity technology, we've been able to make a steam generator more compact than ever before. The smaller size fits perfectly on your ironing board for convenience, and carrying it around is made far easier. Plus your steam generator iron will take up much less storage space.

Superior gliding soleplate and scratch resistance

The SteamGlide soleplate is durable and non-stick, with great scratch resistance and a smooth glide over fabrics. Plus it's easy to clean, especially compared to aluminium soleplates.

Safe and secure carry lock

Your steam generator iron includes a safe carry lock, which securely fastens your iron to its base without the risk of it slipping or someone touching the hot soleplate. It ensures safe and easy transportation around the house, to and from storage.
