  • It's easier than ever to remove creases and crinkles from your clothes with the feature packed Philips PerfectCare Aqua GC8616/30 Steam Generator Iron.

    Look after your laundry

    Utilising the power of steam to take care of your laundry, this steam generator iron provides up to 5 bars of pressure and produces a continuous steam-flow rate of 120 g/min. For particularly stubborn creases, a steam shot function allows you to briefly increase the rate up to 240 g/min - ensuring your clothes will soon be looking their best.

    Tested and approved by independent textile experts, the GC8616/30 is suitable for use on all types of garments and is incredibly easy to use. With no adjustments required, you can simply pick up the iron and power through your laundry pile with the minimum of fuss.

    Capable of vertical steaming, the GC8616/30 also makes it easy to quickly and easily neaten up items such as suit jackets that are already on hangers.

    Gets more done

    With a large 2400 ml water tank and a continuous fill system, you'll be able to deal with bundles of laundry in one go.

    To keep your iron in top condition, an easy de-calc system effectively deals with limescale build up.

    Fitted with a steam-glide ceramic soleplate, you'll find the iron coasting over all types of fabrics with ease. When you've finished ironing for the day, packing the GC8616/30 is simple thanks to built-in cable storage functionality.

    Make ironing easy with the Philips PerfectCare Aqua GC8616/30 Steam Generator Iron.
