Philips had launched the world’s first no-burn iron, which is made in Singapore, in celebration of the nation’s birthday.
The rose gold Philips PerfectCare Expert Plus (GC8962/46) pressurised steam generator iron sports Philips’s patented OptimalTEMP technology to prevent burns, eliminating the need to adjust a temperature dial for different types of fabrics.
According to Philips, the OptimalTEMP technology “combines a constant low soleplate temperature with high-pressure steam, which provides a constant perfect iron temperature.”
It’s even safe to leave the hot iron soleplate on your garments or the ironing board cover, which some users tend to do so, without damaging the garments or the board.
Innovation Lead, Garment Care at Philips Singapore, Mr Ching Boon Khian said:
“Philips’s groundbreaking innovations in garment care are the results of cross-disciplinary collaboration and diversity of ideas in finding the best solutions for evolving consumer needs.”
The Philips PerfectCare Expert Plus offers a maximum of 7.5 bar pressure and up to 120g/min steam rate with a 520g steam boost. It also regularly feed pressurised steam onto the fabric during the ironing process, which makes it easier and faster to straighten things out.
Explaining how the pressurised steam generator works, Senior Marketing Manager, Personal Health at Philips Singapore, Ms Aw Ee Ling said:
“Pressurised steam generator irons have two main components, the iron and the base unit that houses the heating module and water tank, making these irons lighter to hold than standard steam irons. The base unit allows for the steam generator iron’s larger heating module to produce a much greater steam pressure which can tackle even the deepest creases with ease.”
The Philips PerfectCare Expert Plus is also ultra-lightweight, which is suitable for the wrist when ironing for an extended period.
Paired with the SteamGlide Advanced soleplate, the Philips PerfectCare Expert Plus can glide through any fabric like cotton, jeans, silk or linen with ease.
The rose gold Philips PerfectCare Expert Plus (GC8962/46) is on sale at the Philips e-store, leading electronics stores, major department stores and selected authorised deals for S$499 (UP S$599). Each purchase comes with a free laundry bag.
