Philips 8500 series Dampbeholder med trykk GC8520 1,6 l is rated
Rated 4 out of
Better than expected.
This is my 3rd steam generator, previous ones being from a major competitor. They failed soon after the guarantee expired. The adverts for this one did not seem to generate as much steam and appeared smaller in size, but I have owned an ordinary Philips steam iron and been satisfied. This generator performs better than the ones previously owned, heats up quickly and best of all irons very well. One small adverse comment - the generator cannot sit on its heel. It comes with a flat stand that helps, but often I want to use almost the whole ironing board so the stand then gets in the way.
