Which? has been scouring the web this week for the best online deals on the Philips GC7230 steam generator iron.
The Philips steam generator model is priced at £129 in some stores, but we’ve found it for £75 (plus delivery from £6.30) from Pixmania – you’d better get in quick, though, as it’s a limited offer due to end on Friday.

Philips GC7230 steam generator iron
Steam generators can make ironing a quicker, less arduous task. They have a separate water tank that holds about three times as much water as normal irons, therefore producing much higher volumes of steam. This means they’re able to speedily zip through your laundry basket.
We also found a refurbished Philips GC7230 on eBay for £69.99 with free postage and packaging. Seller ‘eckstronics’ (who has a 98.9% positive feedback score) describes the irons on sale as ‘customer returns from a well known catalogue high street chain’ and offers a six-month warranty.
