Philips GC 1115
The two best things about this iron are that it is lightweight, corrosion resistant and has a continuous output of 15 Gms. It has the facility of spray while ironing.
The disadvantage of the iron is that the life is unpredictable and the after sales service of Philips is not up to the mark. Sometimes I have problem with the control panel and sometimes it takes more than the normal time to heat up.
I own a National clothes iron, but decided to buy a lighter iron as the former was very heavy. My Philips iron was purchased only over a year ago and it has since then started giving problems. Thought the iron is sleek and lightweight, it scores less in output and service.
The copper wire lost its lamination within a few months and started giving me electric shocks when I iron clothes that have zari embroidery. The temperature control panel gets stuck and I find it difficult to alter the settings at times. Sometimes the iron refuses to heat up and I end up spending more for repairs.
I even had to change the coil once. I wouldn’t recommend this iron as I feel there are much better irons, which give better service than this particular model. The only thing good about this iron is that the design is sleek, the iron is lightweight and easy to carry. Also the spray facility is particularly useful while ironing cotton clothes.Pros
