The positive features is that it's easy to setup and use, and the compact shape makes it easy to find a place to store it when you're not using it. Setup is a snap - just attach the handle using one screw, and the manufacturer is thoughtful enough to provide an extra long, thin screwdriver since the handle screw is recessed. Nice touch. Also comes with a lot of attachments for pretty much anything you'd want to clean (grout lines, counter tops, floors, windows, BBQ grills, etc.).
The biggest plus is the price. I've looked at steam cleaners for years, but was always put off by the steep price tags. Some of the high end European models run $1,500 or more - for that kind of money, I'd rather pay someone to clean for me! So, a low price is a big plus.
BUT, this low of a price means you're not getting the functionality of a high end machine. For example, the steam is pretty wet, and you'll also get a big dribble of water when you start up after pausing for a few moments. The tank is rather small, and you can't add more water without letting it cool down first. The attachments are OK in terms of function, but wear at a fairly fast rate. Build quality is good for the price paid, but you'll need to take care that you don't damage the wands since they are all plastic.
All in all, however, I'm happy with this. It makes it much easier to clean grout lines on my kitchen counters and floors, which is the main reason I got it. Again, it's not magic - you still need to put some work into it, but it's much, much, MUCH easier than using a scrub brush.Read more ›
The unit did warm up fairly quickly and I was impressed with the quality of the accessories, using thick plastic, good quality rubber seals etc. This model I think would work well as doing primary duty as a clothes steamer but its lack of pressure make it not the best choice for blasting nooks and crannies, where a really good steamer excels as a cleaning maching no other device can touch.
Let me explain. I compared this steamer with the Saeco Piccolo steamer and with a high quality thermometer recorded the Saeco at about 190 degrees and the steamFast at about 170-180 degrees. Secondly I put a paper cup on the floor and with both machines heated up with a full tank of water, I pointed the nozzle at the opening of the cup to see which model would blow the cup the farthest. The SteamFast product blew the cup about five feet. The Piccolo blew the cup 15 feet and probably would have kept going if it was not for the wall stopping it. Not even remotely close.
Next I took both steamers out on my deck and pointed the nozzles at a hose that "overwintered" on my deck....complete with black moldy stains hiding the normally greeen hose.Read more ›
I use this for cleaning my shower room. It works! but don't expect magic. It takes time to clean old stains. Steamer is really good on narrow areas (between tiles). It is extremely difficult to clean between tiles with other cleaners but steamer is really good. I tried to clean deck chairs. The chairs have some mildew stains and I didn't expect the steamer can clean it but the stains were disappeared.
The build quality is good. I just wish they improve the switch for continuous steam. It is very small. I recommend to use the distilled water only.
I recommend this steamer to any one looking for high quality steamer.
Having never used a steamer before I didn't know what to expect. I can tell you now, though, I have not been disappointed! This little guy is great. I've cleaned tough mildewed shower grout, mild rust spots off the bathroom counter, got rid of a mildew odor from the bottom of my couch, steamed all bedroom pillows to get rid of dust mites and other allergins (it really works great), and finally got my 25+ year-old kitch floor looking like new! It really does do just about everything.
You do have to do quite a bit of scrubbing when you clean a dirty area for the first time and this is the ONLY reason why I give it four stars. I suppose that's to be expected, but after the initial elbow grease, keeping it maintained is as easy as "wanding" and wiping. No chemicals!!!
Here's a few tips/recommendations to help you when you use it:
* Buy a pair of heavy latex or rubber gloves. I bought a pair that are used for paint stripping. Be sure that they are comfortable enough to bend your fingers and wear for an extended period of time. This will help prevent accidental steam burns. DO NOT think that because you are wearing gloves that you can expose your gloved hand to the direct steam.
* I have allergies to mold and mildew. When you use steam to clean you are blasting it with hot water and killing it but the spores could become airborne or be released in the steam itself. I find it best to wear a mask that is made for mildew/mold.Read more ›
