I purchased my McCulloch MC1235 1300-Watt Handheld Steam Cleaner last year from [...], and I have loved it ever since! I use this great tool to clean automotive door / wall panels, engines, carpet, upholstery, and also household items such as microwaves, toaster ovens, vacuums and such. I have owned other steam cleaners in the past and gotten mixed results (from exploding boilers to no steam out of the box), but I am finally satisfied with the reliable performance and great customer service of McCulloch and SteamFast (manufacturer). When un-boxed, the vibrant yellow steam cleaner has grey accents and a high grade feel to the plastics used in its manufacture. I really like the refillable water tank, and also the eight minutes of steam you get with that container. Other brands of steam cleaners hold enough water to make less than five minutes of steam, and call for you to allow the unit to cool before refilling. With the McCulloch steam cleaner, you don't need to let it cool; just pour 8 oz of tap water into the reservoir and go!

There are some pros and cons with the cleaner I should mention:

quick-refilling reservoir
high-powered steam
lots of useful tools
adjustable steam output
quick warm-up time
compact size

loud water pump (as indicated by other reviews)
poor quality switches / reservoir cap
unit gets hot after extended use

As you can see, the pros outnumber the cons. The water pump is loud, but that is the trade off for having the amazing variable steam output switch... Speaking of that switch, you have to play with it to get the steam to come out "full power" as the quality of that particular switch is sub-par.

The steamer made cleaning a joy. Well, as joyful as cleaning can be for someone who greatly dislikes cleaning. Even my husband appreciated how the steamer got the grease off various engine parts gently (it's a classic car). The problem happened as I was cleaning the kitchen. The oven sparkled, grease melted off the range and in the microwave, the counters and cabinets sparkled, and all was good with the world. I left the unit plugged in while I cleaned the floors, got side tracked (as often happens with me), and came back to finish the kitchen a few hours later. I unplugged the steamer to go to the bathroom, and noticed the casing was hot. Laptop running on battery power and scaling your lap hot. Then I looked at the unit and the case had "melted" in that the plastic was disfigured. Well that's not good...

Did the unit continue to work fine? Yes. Should I have left it plugged in? Well no, but should the unit have melted even though it was "off" just because it was plugged in? I think not. So, if you're going to use it, make sure you unplug it as soon as your done. Thankfully Amazon was gracious about the return (had only had it a few days).

I am a perfectionist and you know what that means. Having said that, I drive people nuts with my standards for measuring a clean home. I have used every cleaning agent available on earth. I've even considered acid and thank God my reason prevailed.

Now to the amazement of my family and friends, I use my steamer exclusively (and white vinegar)--no, you can't put white vinegar in the machine. You only need water, but I use bottled water because of the level of minerals in our water. I use my machine everywhere: bathrooms, kitchen, wood crevices, floors, vents, window blinds, mirrors, garbage cans, white residue on rocks (!), appliances, especially appliances. I also use it for my car, especially to clean the wheels. Most of the time, I take it to the car wash, but it is never quite right so I use my machine to finish the job. I call it completed staff work.

Everybody is so grateful because when they visit me they are not bombarded with the odors of cleaning chemicals. I was wondering what made me sneeze so much. And I don't have to wear those special gloves.

I hope this is helpful. I guess I have gone Green without knowing it. Cheers!

I had the big McCulloch MC-1275 Heavy-Duty Steam Cleaner in the past, which was really overkill for my needs, so I was interested to see how this one would fare. Here's how it did on common household tasks:

Grout around a fireplace -- didn't turn it white, but it did clean it up a bit. Soot that wasn't visible to the eye ended up on my cleaning cloth.

Tennis shoes -- Just meh. I don't think steam is enough to get out stains in this case. It needed some kind of cleaner to help it along.

Oven -- I don't have a self-cleaning oven. The gunk that was baked on and flush with the surface didn't come off as easily as I had hoped. Here's an occasion where you might need some cleaner in addition to the steam. I used the little round scrub brush tool as the nozzle, and that still didn't remedy some really baked on crud. That's going to require some chemicals and/or a putty knife at a low angle with lots of liquid. I kept cleaning one section that I thought was dirty, only to wipe and find sparkly flecks on the cloth. Apparently, the coating on the oven was peeling, and the steam and scrubbing made it worse. Not the fault of the steamer.

Fiberglass shower/tub -- This was admittedly way overdue for a cleaning. I tried steam alone at first and found that the soap scum melted a bit but I could still see and feel it. So then I sprayed some Seventh Generation tub cleaner and let things sit for about 10 minutes. I took a regular scrub brush in one hand, the steamer in the other, and got a little rhythm going of steaming and scrubbing along right after the steam. That was a lot of work, but it came clean easier than just scrubbing + cleaner.
