We're looking for 20 Mumsnetters to try Philips PerfectCare Xpress the World's first pressurised steam iron, with "revolutionary OptimalTEMP technology and compact steam generator, it's built for powerful crease removal and is faster than any other steam iron, as tested by independent institute, DWI, June 2011".

Here's what Philips say about the product: "PerfectCare Xpress has no settings, just one perfect temperature that's safe on all ironable fabrics, even delicates. Iron from jeans to silk, to linen, to cotton, to any order, without having to adjust the temperature, it's 100% scorch proof! Plus with an automatic motion steam sensor inside ironing has never been easier. Compact and convenient for storage it's perfect for ironing small loads, every day"

This product test is open to all UK Mumsnetters. Testers will be required to try the iron out over the course of a week and add feedback to a thread on Mumsnet. We'd also like you to add a review to MN reviews to let us know how you get on.

Thanks and good luck,

Done. My fingers are firmly crossed on this one. Currently averse to ironing as I never seem to get any results with my nan's old hand-me-down one! Think I have it more for sentimental value than any practical use!

Me please!!! I missed out on the Hoover test and would really really love a new iron as mine is about to give up the ghost. Thanks!!

I would really love the chance to try this one out, anything to make my ironning pile less of a boring mountain has got to be a good one to try out.

Done.It sounds brilliant! I love looking in my wardrobe when everything is ironed but at the moment it is a busting at the seams crumpled mess(how come unironed items take up twice the room?)

Hope I get chosen - never win anything be just my luck though that the only thing I win in my entire life is an iron. The family will start expecting crinkle free clothes

ooh done iron is a swear word in my house i dont iron blush

Ulysses Mon 05-Nov-12 19:05:20

I've got a steam generator but its so bulky that I can't be bothered to get it out. Also DH finds it complicated so end up having to set it up for him. There you go 2 testers for the price of 1!

Could you add something to my survey. I didn't click the option for sometimes burning delicates, the reason is because they are the one thing I don't iron! Too scared of ruining them, I have a beautifully creased Christmas table cloth just waiting for this iron!

JaxTellerIsMyFriend Mon 05-Nov-12 19:46:18

I will happily try a new iron - anything to make me do it would be helpful.

outtolunchagain Mon 05-Nov-12 19:46:26

Sounds ideal - I've lost count of the clothes I've ruined by forgetting to turn the iron down - you'd think I'd have learned by experience, but I think my brain switches off when I'm ironing.
