Gift Idea for Mother’s Day: Philip PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron

Have you ever heard your mum complaining the clothes burned when she was ironing? For those who never do ironing, you might not know you would need to adjust the iron’s temperature depends on the different fabrics. Else, like your mum said, clothes burned. Philips has come out with an innovative technology to solve this mum-headached problem; and hence, this makes it be the perfect gift idea on Mother’s Day!
Philips PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron

During Philips No Burn Campaign, Philips introduced Philips PerfectsCare Azur Steam Iron. Philips claims that this Philips PerfectsCare Azur Steam Iron can maintain the perfect combination of temperature and steam to deliver an ironing performance. It utilises a Smart Control processor to set the right temperature combined with Heat Flow technology to enable an even stream of steam and temperature balance. 

In other words, Philips PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron is:-

  1. 100% safe on all garments, even the most delicate like silk, cashmere, wool and polyester.
  2. 100% easy to use, no adjustment required due to the perfect combination of Smart Control Processor and HeatFlow technology.
How to use:
Pour water into the iron until the max water level. Turn on the iron, wait less than one minute, you can start ironing your clothes. FYI, PerfectCare Azur steam iron is designed to be used with tap water. However, for better ironing results Philips recommends to use deminaralized water.
There is also a steam boost button on the holder, and hence, you can use Philips PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron for vertical steaming or tough creases. Additionally, they have a “water spray” button (labelled as A below), user can press the button to spray the water on the garments. For button labelled as B, user can adjust to shut down the steam, or can either choose to use Eco mode or Non-Eco mode for ironing.
Philips PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron is the first steam iron I have used. It is truly easy to use because I don’t need to adjust the temperature based on different fabrics. And surprisingly, I never think ironing can be so easy before this. Previously when using the traditional iron, I tended to spray more water and press the iron harder to remove the wrinkle, but with Philips PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron, I only put it on top of my shirt, and push in light force, the tricky wrinkle disappear!
Apart from that, Philips PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron will automatically shut down if you left it unattended. For example, if the iron was left on the soleplate, it will shut down after 2 minutes. It is a brilliant idea for every mum, especially who is taking care of baby. Imagine the baby cries when the new mummy is ironing, then she forgot to switch off the iron before leaving? 

Nonetheless, Philips PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron is a heavy iron. The first time when I brought it home, I seem like carrying a big stone. Therefore, if you would like to do vertical ironing, you may find yourself feeling tired after ironing. Except from its weight, I enjoyed ironing a lot with Philips PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron. Well, I am going to buy my mum a Philips PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron so that she can enjoy the “Burn Marks No More” journey like I did.  How about you?

FYI, The Philips PerfectCare Azur range is available at major electrical and departmental stores and at a recommended price range of RM459 to RM599 (before GST).

  1. I actually love to iron clothes, but my husband says I take too long in doing it. It’s like I’m playing around haha. I like the idea of gifting this steam iron to a mom on mother’s day. I love the safety feature as well, that it shuts down automatically when unattended. 🙂

    • This iron is a great item for moms. I have to say that ironing clothes is what i hate most and i dont wanna do now that im married for 6 yrs.

  2. wow, really looks like a good iron! but i have my qualms on gifting my mum home appliances on mother’s day. hahah! it’s like, “please carry on ironing all my clothes, mum!”

  3. Ooooh! This seems so cool! We never had a steam iron at home, so this will definitely be a nice gift to my mom. Will do the ironing too as a bonus! 😀

  4. How cool. Of all the household chores, ironing clothes is last on my list. But with this cool flat iron, maybe it will go up a few notches.

  5. I used to have a Phillips iron and it did a great job. I don’t iron much these days though but I would always recommend the brand.

  6. I have this Philips iron and I used it occasionally. But it’s very good for satin-like materials and soft material. For jeans, found it not suitable.

  7. I’m sure moms everywhere would appreciate receiving a nifty gadget like this! We should make life easier for those who work hard for us! 😀

  8. I have to admit that this is the first that I know this particular electric steam iron. I know this kind of appliance is so perfect for a mother as her perfect companion in ironing her family clothes.

  9. I am already using Philips azur range and it is so brilliant.. I never had any burnt cloth and it irons so perfectly and saves time.

  10. Ironing is certainly not one of my favourite pastimes, however this iron looks awesome! It would make a dull, boring task much easier I expect!

  11. I personally do not think a mom will appreciate a gift for a household chore. Hehe. Of all the chores, I do not like ironing at all.

  12. erhm. A very practical gift I suppose for really practical mums. Not something I’d like for a mothers’ day gift though. I’d rather a year-long laundry service voucher 🙂

  13. My Mom hires someone to iron our clothes & I would recommend this one. It seems like something that’s gentle on clothes. I like the automatic shut down feature of this Philip’s steam iron – it makes the product more safe & appealing.
