Philips EasySpeed Advanced GC2678/39 review

Key features
  • Steam iron
  • Corded
Reviewed

This pale lilac steam iron from Philips has an anti-drip ceramic soleplate, vertical steaming, auto-shut off and a self-clean function that should mean you can use tap water without having to worry about limescale making it less steamy over time. This iron certainly seems to have all bases covered, but will the EasySpeed Advanced GC2678/39 help you steam through that pile of ironing quickly and effortlessly? Our expert review reveals all.
