Best Steam Iron In India

The goodness of an iron is decided mainly by 2 factors – how HOT it gets and how much steam it produces. Most irons reach their maximum temperature in under a minute. The steam flowing out of the holes in the soleplate remove creases and wrinkles and make your garment smooth and crisp.

So, here are my favourites by considering HEAT, STEAM and a multitude of other factors that affect the goodness of a iron such as water tank capacity, steam burst feature, cord length and swivel degrees, weight, warranty and price. So, check out this comparision table to identify the best Philips steam iron in India.

The Philips GC 1010 is a “value for money” ironbox. No wonder it is in the bestseller list on Amazon. For approximately, 850 rupees, you can buy a full fledged steam iron. It is a 1200W iron which is enough for everyday use. The heat produced is good enough for almost all wrinkles. It can also produce steam which should tackle those few stubborn wrinkles and creases. So, if you are looking for something not very expensive, then this is the ideal iron. You can read a more detailed review here – Philips GC1010 Review

The Philips GC1905 is a level above the basic 1010 version. It is a 1440W iron with a 17g per minute continuous steam output. This means that it is a good enough iron for quickly ironing that T shirt or top just before running off to office. With a water tank of 180ml, it should definitely last for 10 minutes of ironing out stubborn wrinkles. This iron comes with a Black American heritage non stick coated soleplate. This iron is not bad at all, but it might strain you a bit if you have to iron clothes for everybody in a family of 4 or more. I would really go for the GC1980 or 2840.

If you do a lot of ironing, or if you regularly iron large pieces of garments such as Saris or if you iron Jeans, then the GC1980’s heat might not be sufficient for you. Thats why the GC2840 comes with a 2200W super awesome iron box which can produce 32g of steam per minute with a 300 ml water tank. Thats a lot of pressing power !! Only caveat is that this powerful iron requires the big AEH socket. The regular socket cannot provide the current it requires. It comes with a steamglide soleplate and can smoothen anything like butter. This iron is just awesome. Its steam burst produces 100g of steam. That much steam can remove creases just by hovering the iron!!

This is a powerful iron with 1750W of power. This heat is really required for producing that crisp looking white shirt that impresses your boss. The better you iron, the better the shirt will stay on you whole day. With 22g of steam output per minute with a 180ml tank capacity, ironing out stubborn wrinkles should be a breeze. Now, you can leave your clothes in the washing machine right until ironing because you know that this iron will flatten any crease. The soleplate is made of Golden American Heritage and is of high quality. All in all, this is a good buy.
