To what extent you investments really depend on your preference. And to ease your task of choosing the right products, we’ve done the leg-work – from a speaker that turns into a virtual home assistant to a self-sensing steam generator iron – these are worth every penny.
Philips PerfectCare 9000 Series Steam Generator Iron
Philips always scores the best for its revolutionary home appliances and the PerfectCare 9000 Series is no exception.

Fascinating but that is not all, wait until you hear about its unparalleled safety features. The latest PerfectCare 9000 is pre-installed with a fast-cooling system. This means, even when you unintendedly left the iron resting on your clothes or iron board the cooling system will automatically adjust the temperature, and – if left longer – it turns off on its own. The iron is equipped with SteamGlide Elite soleplate – the very best stainless steel base in a steam generator iron that is twice as hard as a regular aluminium base – along with a patented 6-layer titanium coating, delivering easy-peasy glides with excellent results. Although the entire machine looks a bit bulky the iron is amazingly light and comfortable to handle that you can make it into a vertical steaming for curtains and hanging clothes without even straining your wrist.
