Philips PerfectCare Steam Generator 9000 Series 

PerfectCare 9000 Series comes with the world's first fabric sensing technology in irons, called ActiveSense. Using a built-in camera and AI, the iron can detect what materials are being ironed and automatically adjusts the ideal temperature and steam amount, accordingly, providing effortless ironing with excellent results. 


Philips Essential Airfryers

Today, consumers have an increased desire for healthy cooking alternatives to support their family’s wellbeing. Following last year’s introduction of the Philips Airfryer XXL with Smart Sensing technology, the new Essential line delivers Philips’ patented rapid air technology to cook foods with 90% less fat – at a more accessible price point. The Essential range includes a Compact, XL and a Connected version – and all can be used with the NutriU app to access healthy recipes and helpful cooking tips. Launched in 2019, the Philips Airfyer XXL with Smart Sensing technology was the company’s first air fryer equipped with AI. The smart sensor monitors the inside temperature and amount of food and automatically adjusts cooking time and temperature while cooking for hands.

With consumers’ heighted awareness of hygiene at home – especially with more people in the house for longer periods of time – Philips all-in-one vacuum and mop now features new anti-bacterial microfiber cleaning pads with an Always Clean coating to protect the cloth from bacteria growth after use*. Consumers can also add detergent in the water chamber to remove up to 99 percent of bacteria when mopping – making it easy to sanitize, mop and vacuum all at the same time.

Without morning coffee meetings and breaks at work around the coffee machine, there has been an increasing desire for coffee machines as consumers build out their home office setup. The new Full Automatic Espresso Machine – Philips 5400 brings café-quality coffee to the home, offering up to 12 different coffee drinks with just the touch of a button via its new user interface.
