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

Philips' best gliding and most scratch-resistant soleplate

The T-ionic Glide is Philips' most premium soleplate, promising superior gliding for faster, effortless ironing. It has a stainless steel base which is harder and more durable than aluminium, with an integrated titanium oxide layer for advanced scratch resistance. Plus the carefully designed shape and vents provide even better steam distribution for faster crease removal.

Easy and efficient descaling system

Regular descaling protects your iron and ensures you'll continue to get the very best steam performance. The exclusively designed and ideally positioned Easy De-Calc Plus function provides the ideal way to get rid of limescale and extend the lifespan of your steam generator iron. The iron will remind you with both light and sound when it's time to clean and descale. Then when your appliance is cold, simply remove the Easy De-Calc knob, collect the dirty water and scale into a cup and discard.

Large detachable water tank for easy refilling

The detachable water tank allows you to easily refill anytime without stopping the appliance. It has a large filling hole so you can simply fill the water tank under the tap. It has a 1.8-l capacity, so you get the convenience of up to 2 hours of continuous use, with no need to top up the tank.

Safe and secure carry lock
