If you were hesitant to equip yourself with a steam generator, this may be the right opportunity to take the plunge since the Calor GV9563C0 is sold at 179 € at the moment on Amazon.
The manufacturer seems to have wanted to simplify the operations of filling the tank with a capacity of 1.9 l. Indeed, the latter is removable, which allows it to be placed directly under the faucet avoiding any risk of splashing. Above all, it is said to be “unlimited”: this means that it can be filled at any time without having to wait for the temperature of the liquid it contains to drop. As is often the case with Calor, the anti-scale system takes the form of a cartridge to unscrew, then to clean before being replaced in the tank.
Despite a total weight of 5.6 kg, the iron weighs only 1 kg, which should allow it not to strain the arm too much, even if the ironing session drags on. Good point, it is very stable in vertical position and, not to spoil anything, the system of blocking the iron on the central is particularly safe; no risk of the iron tipping over.
The Calor GV9563C0 has been shown to be formidably effective against creases thanks to a standard steam output of 140 g / min which can climb up to 500 g / min using the pressing function, ideal for stubborn creases. In addition, we noticed that the temperature at the tip of the iron reached 142 ° C, a real asset for smoothing textiles, even in the tightest corners.
Finally, Calor ensures the repairability of its device for 10 years, which is not negligible if you do not want to change your power plant from the first failure.

The Philips GC8950 / 30 comes out of the tests with an identical overall score. On the other hand, with a price displayed at 189.99 €, it is a little more expensive than the Calor Pro Express Ultimate GV9563C0. The ergonomics test revealed that it is slightly behind that of the Calor. However, it presents the same strong point if one refers to the note given to the convenience of use.
