Iron everything from jeans to silk with no temperature setting required

Safe to leave the hot soleplate on the ironing board

The innovative Philips OptimalTEMP technology guarantees no burns on all ironable fabrics. During ironing, there is no need to put your iron back on the base station; just leave the hot iron soleplate directly on the garments or cotton ironing board cover without an additional resting accessory. It will not damage any of your ironable garments, or the board. This makes your ironing easier, with less wrist effort.

1.8-l detachable water tank, up to 2 hours of ironing

Compact ProVelocity Steam Engine: continuous steam, all the time

Water is transferred from the water tank to the iron by a high-pressure pump. A lot of water travels inside the steam chamber at very high speed. This causes very powerful and constant steam to come out from the soleplate all the time, without water condensation.
Compact ProVelocity Steam Engine: continuous steam, all the time

Continuous steam up to 120 g/min

The more steam, the faster the ironing. The unique technology in a Philips steam generator iron generates powerful steam making ironing easier, better and faster.

Smart Calc cleaning system with a sound and light cleaning reminder

The Smart Calc cleaning system is an integrated descaling and cleaning function that protects your steam generator iron. After around 10 hours of ironing, your steam generator iron will remind you to perform the Calc cleaning process with a sound and light notification. The iron conveniently rests on the Calc container as it collects the dirty water, so you don't have to strain to hold the iron during the process. After all the water has been collected in the container, your steam generator iron is ready to use again.
