Most people will probably use the main nozzle (as pictured) and attack the usual areas -- bathroom, kitchen, and every other nook + cranny you can think of. It did a good job on all those areas.
It's light enough to carry around for a while, and the long power cord allowed for good flexibility. It removed most of the burnt-on grease inside the oven (though it took a few cycles).
As to be expected with a basic model, it doesn't take long to lose its' steam power, and it needs refilling rather quickly (so don't pump for steam if you don't need to). Also, depending on the angle being applied, it leaked more water than steam action to some surfaces. Additionally, I wish the main nozzle was longer, as I found myself unable to reach certain areas.
To sum up, it's fine for most basic household uses - but don't expect maximum power from a model like this. I found myself wanting to upgrade.
i say this because some people may think you steam it off,,and that when done the area is cleaned,,it isn't. it lessens the elbow-grease you have to put in.it IS worth the money, you don't have to work as hard, but you still have to wipe up the residue....so much for cleaning unreachable places,,,for that you need to use an attachment with a fabric cover, which they do give you, but it's teeny, tiny...you need about fifty to complete a dirty job... all in all, i recommend,,but prepare to get creative... it's a good and helpful little product!
I continue to use the steam cleaner and it still works well for me. It does clean grime but you need to use the brush along with it. This is still better than using chemicals.
This unit works well for small tight jobs, say behind a toilet or pipe that you can't get to well. But even a toilet can take 2 or three fillings. If you going to tackle a shower or a floor you'll want to go for something bigger or your going to be there for a very long time. This unit would work well on small parts or tools where you can elevate them so you don't have to tip it at all. 8 minutes would work for that.
I have some rather large water deposits in my shower and this unit was pretty useless on those. But after some research I discovered I could pour white vinegar on them and leave it sit for 30-60 minutes and then this unit was helpful in breaking them up. It did take many passes and the 8 minute limit was a killer. This unit was very good at taking off scum that collects around the drain in my shower, it was quick and easy. It also did well on hard to remove water stains in the toilet, another small job, much smaller with steam.
All in all, it was a cheap learning device, but I think I am going to give it to my kid and go for something bigger as I just hated the constant refilling of this 6 ounce unit. I am sure I spent half of my time refilling and half of my time using it.Read more ›
