Best Philips Steam Irons in India for 2019
1. Philips EasySpeed Plus GC2040
Kicking off our list, we have an amazing EasySpeed Plus GC2040 steam iron, which has over 400 positive reviews on Amazon. This iron comes with a power consumption of 2100 W, which isn’t the most energy-saving but it’s more than enough for constant steam output. Thanks to the non-stick coating of the soleplate, your clothes will not stick for your iron, which can cause it to burn due to the high temperature. One feature that many will find convenient is the vertical steam function. This allows you to remove creases in hanging clothes without having to put them to your ironing board.
If you need to iron out your sophisticated clothes at low temperatures, EasySpeed Plus GC2040 got your covered, thanks to its Drip Stop feature that stops dripping, thus preventing unwanted stains on your clothes. The fact that this iron is made for all types of clothes is backed up by a triple-precision tip that allows you to iron out even the most demanding and hard-to-reach areas. All of this makes GC2040 a perfect choice for those who are willing to pay a tad more.
2. Philips GC1920/28
Philips GC1920/28 is perhaps one of the most popular steam irons in India, judging by almost two thousand positive reviews. This pink beauty comes with a futuristic, yet elegant design that’s going to make your wipe off your saliva, as soon as you see it. For those who want to save some energy, the good news is that it consumes as much as 1440 W of power, for constant high-steam output. For added quality and detail, Philips included a high-quality golden non-stick soleplate, making it impossible for your clothes to stick and burn. With the continuous steam output rate of 17 g/min, it’s a bit slower than the GC2040 30 g/min, but that’s not a problem, given its lower price.
If you want to iron your sensitive clothes, the steam settings are variable, making it far more versatile. With the capacity of 180 ml and aforementioned variable steam settings, you can iron out tons of clothes with only one filling, removing the hassle of having to fill it every five minutes.
3. Philips GC1010
Philips GC1010 is a beautiful, blue steam iron with compact, yet modern design. Consuming 1200 W of power, this beauty isn’t going to increase your electricity bill by much, so it’s good for both financial and ecological reasons. Thanks to its Linished soleplate, GC1010 prevents sticking, making the ironing far more enjoyable and far less tedious. In terms of steam output rate, with its 15 g/min, it isn’t all that much behind its competition, given its affordable price. Of course, the variable steam settings are here, so you can now take advantage of its rather small capacity of 150 ml.
Important to mention is the self calc cleaning solution that comes with this iron, so you can clean the steam iron in less than a few minutes. We’re confident to say that this iron gives the best price-to-performance ratio on our list and we’re sure that this one will be the iron of your choice after reading this article.
4. Philips GC1905
Philips GC1905 is following the footsteps of GC1920/28, which is a model we’ve mentioned just a minute ago. With over 5000 ratings on Amazon, Philips GC1905 is one of the best steam irons in 2019, even though specs-wise, it’s nothing to brag about. Since there is less bad than good, let’s get the bad out of the way. The bad thing is that there’s not calc clean slider but a calc management known as Self Clean. The good thing is that we have a whopping 1440 W of power, which is great for the price, hence the word “whopping” in the sentence. Furthermore, we also have linished soleplate, which is known for its amazing non-stick capabilities.
Finally, the rest is fairly similar to GC1920/28, so we have a tank capacity of 180 ml, as well as a 17 g/min steam output rate.
5. Philips EasySpeed Plus GC2048
Philips EasySpeed Plus GC2048 is a strong little girl, packing 2300 W of power and ceramic soleplate, which is scratch-resistant and non-sticky. This powerhouse comes with a steam output rate of 35 g/min, which is the highest on our list. Despite its high consumption, this iron is also power-efficient, thanks to its auto-off function which turns off the iron after 8 minutes of pause. The downside to all of this is that it’s far more expensive than the other irons on our list, thus we gave it the last place. Don’t fool yourself, though – this is a beast of an iron!
We hope that this buyer’s guide cleared up some of the doubts in your head. With this list, you can make it into every price range, from budget to more expensive steam irons, so the decision is yours. Philips steam irons are among the best in the world, so we have no doubts you’ll enjoy them for years to come.
