Intelligent automatic steam
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
No burns – guaranteed
Thanks to OptimalTEMP technology, Philip's guarantee this iron will never cause burns to any ironable fabric. You can even leave it resting face down on your clothes or ironing board. No burns, no shine. Guaranteed.
Powerful steam for ultimate crease removal
Strong, continuous steam tackles even the thickest fabrics with ease. Watch stubborn creases melt away with an extra steam boost just where you need it. This extra steam is perfect for vertical steaming to refresh clothes and curtains, too.
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.
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.
T-ionicGlide soleplate, ultimate gliding & durability
T-ionicGlide is Philip's best soleplate for ultimate gliding performance and maximum scratch resistance. Its stainless steel base is twice as hard as a regular aluminum base, and Philip's patented 6-layer coating with advanced titanium layer glides effortlessly for the fastest results.
Easy and efficient descaling system for lasting performance
Regular descaling protects your iron, extends its lifetime, and ensures the best steam performance. Philip's 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.
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.
Save energy with ECO mode
Save energy and get the same great results. ECO mode reduces your energy consumption for garments that require less steam.
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.
Independently tested and approved
The Woolmark Gold seal of approval ensures a product is safe to use on any and every wool fabric. Philip's steam irons with OptimalTEMP technology are the first and only irons, from any brand, to earn this level of certification.
