Which? has been scouring the web this week for the best online deals on the Philips GC2810 SteamGlide iron – here’s where to get your hands on one for less than £20.
Doing the ironing is a chore most of us would rather avoid. But while we can’t make that pile of clothes in your laundry basket any smaller, we can help you bag a bargain on a Philips steam iron that’s designed to glide through your ironing easily.
Head to Currys to get hold of one for £19.99 – reserve it for free to pick up in store (home delivery wasn’t an option at the time of writing).
In contrast, if you bought the Philips SteamGlide GC2810 iron directly from Philips you’d need to pay £24.99 plus £3.99 delivery costs, while Argos, House of Fraser and John Lewis price the iron at around £30.

The iron comes with a ‘SteamGlide’ soleplate, which Philips claims is scratch resistant, easy-to-clean and able to glide comfortably over a range of different materials. The GC2810 also comes with a powerful steam shot for extra oomph while ironing stubborn creases.
