I have one of these, and it's just as good (if not better) as the Tefal one I've had for the last 8 years.
The Philips PerfectCare Compact Steam Generator Iron GC7808/40 uses powerful, continuous steam to smooth out the toughest creases. The iron comes with a light and compact design, allowing it to fit comfortably on your ironing board. The non-stick soleplates allow the iron to glide easily over all types of fabric.
The GC7808/40 automatically sets the ideal temperature, from jeans to silks, you won't need to fiddle with any dials.
Featuring a 1.5L water tank which allows you to iron for up to 2 hours without refilling. This comes with an anti-calc system which reduces limescale build-up so your iron stays cleaner for longer.
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.
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.
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.
ECO mode allows you to save energy without compromising your ironing results
