During the past two years, we have used the steamer 3 or 4 times and now it no longer functions.

This steamer comes with a collapsible terry cloth board to hang on the back of your door with clips to hold your clothes in place while you steam which work great.

I was nervous in the beginning to try it on more delicate fabrics, but it really worked great on my silk blouses for work.

I like to think of myself as a true ironer. I love the look of pressed clothes and when i saw the press and refresh i knew i had to try it out. Although i have tried other garment steamers in the past and have been disappointed, i went ahead and purchased this product. The vertical ironing pad is amazing! It's so much easier to maneuver clothing on the pad when its hanging instead of trying to fight it on the ironing board. I think the best part was i don't have to worry about taking it down off my door to store! The steamer itself works great! I must admit, it took a few times of using it to get the hang of it. It's one of those products that you have to really get the technique down to appreciate it, but the results were great! I'm not advocating it will completely eliminate your iron, but it sure does give a nice pressed look to clothes especially those you would never want to touch your iron with. I was nervous in the beginning to try it on more delicate fabrics, but it really worked great on my silk blouses for work. I absolutely see how this will help with my dry cleaning bills. I also think its wonderful that you can use it on upholstery. I live in NY and have an 8 month old baby girl (my first :) so I'm very protective). With the outbreak of bedbugs in NY and just everyday germs, i feel so much better knowing that the steamer eliminates germs and bedbugs around my house (I even used it on my car upholstery). For all of you skeptics, give it a try! Don't give up after the first use, you will be pleasantly surprised! I have never bought into infomercial products, but I'm starting to think I might have to start watching more of them!

I decided to write a review on this because I realized how much I depend upon these reviews to purchase items. I almost decided against buying this item because of some comments, but after reading others, it sounded like it "fit the bill" for me, and it has. First, this will not replace an iron. I have owned numerous steamers, including a heavy-duty retail model. You can't steam a man's cotton shirt and expect to get a crisp, starched look. Like some of the other reviewers, I was looking for a steamer to do a fast, touch up on suit wrinkles or blouses. For my lifestyle, ironing is not in the picture, so clothes are either sent to the cleaners or washed and quickly steamed. Someone had complained about the time it took to heat up. I timed it, and it was under 2 minutes. My biggest gripe about clothes steamers is the water dripping. I did not experience this with this steamer. It has a special head specifically to prevent it. I did notice that when I included the brush attachment, wrinkles came out easier. The steam and head get quite hot. Another plus is the size, which allows me to easily store it under the bathroom sink. Finally, someone mentioned about the weight. It doesn't seem any heavier than a regular iron and with the design of the handle, it was like lifting a 1 or 2 pound weight, so an added bonus is that you get a little workout. This item isn't meant for ironing a basket of clothing, you really need an iron. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating was because you had to dump the water out of it after using it, otherwise it would have been perfect.

I am a working professional and I was looking for an easier way to care for my "dry clean only" clothing. I wear a suit daily and usually wear a shirt that needs special care. I hate ironing and I avoid buying clothing that tends to get wrinkly or needs ironing. I have owned steamers before and I have not been very impressed. After buying this steamer I was extremely impressed!
Here are the pros:
-It comes with great extras; lint remover, extra steaming pads, water fill cup that makes refilling the machine easy.
-The over the door idea is wonderful if you hate having to drag out an ironing board or have limited space. Even the little clips that come with it stay in place and grab your garments very well.
-It is ready to use in a minute. Easy to use.
-Unlike other steamers I have used this one comes with an extra way to get rid of wrinkles besides the steam. It has a wrinkle eraser pressing bar that has been really useful for getting tough wrinkles out.

Here are the cons:
-I thought it was a bit heavy.
-It does not hold as much water as I would like. I usually have to refill it once during each use.
-It takes a bit of practice to make creases in clothing.

Overall I think this is a great investment and made its purchase price back in one month in dry cleaning bill savings.

I've been using this $70 fabric steamer for less than a year, and it was working very nicely. Recently the steam started lessening and then one day the base got really hot and POW! It gave a loud pop, and no more steam. I called the manufacturer and was told that there was nothing they could do. No repair. No replacement. No coupons for inconvenience. Nothing. This is my first, and will be my last Shark product.

I just bought this item in lieu of a new iron/board because with a 20% off coupon it was about the same price, and I liked the idea of being able to clean my furniture, curtains, comforters, etc. I already cleaned all of the above and ironed a few clothing items with amazing results. I really like having a clean house and looking nice with minimal effort so this is exactly what I needed. My couches looked brand new after steaming them, which is saying something since I bought them used and have 2 cats who love to sleep on them!

To address the other reviews about the weight, reservoir, and size of the ironing pad: it is a little heavy, but it is worth the convenience that with the long chord and quick heat up time you can be completely portable. In order to have the portability and the large amount of 130+ degree steam, there has to be some bulk. I don't know how long people are spending on '1 cardigan' but the reservoir let me steam: 1 couch, 1 chair, and 2 window curtains. As for the size of the pad, don't you have to reposition everything on the regular ironing board? How is this different? If it was larger then people would complain that it took up the entire door etc.

Overall this is a great product if you are looking for a steam cleaner/iron. The attachments are great (especially the lint one thanks to the above mentioned pets!) I can literally see all of the dirt on the upholstery cleaner attachment that was removed. Shocking!
