If you don't have a dryer and a wet washcloth handy, you don't want to pull our the iron, and you've only got a few wrinkles to remove, this will do the job.
The first shirt I tried to steam was a button down cotton-poly blend. After hanging it from a metal hanger over a towel on a towel rack, I started steaming it carefully, pulling it taut as instructed, running the steamer over it slowly, and releasing steam in 2-second spurts.
It worked well enough; I might have gotten a better result by tossing it in the dryer (new shirt, never done much with it), or not. Traditional Ironing would have given me a crisper result. But if you can't iron and you don't have a dryer, this made it passable. Otherwise send for a valet or drycleaning, or learn how to iron.
The second shirt was a partially pre-crinkled shirt. I repeated the set up with a metal hanger and towel (so I didn't steam the wall, or in this case, the shower curtain). I pulled the fabric tight and started steaming. However, this stretched it out of shape; I had better success pulling it horizontally taut while steaming vertically.
It seemed not great on collars, over all, while the shirts were in a hanging position. If you need to work on a collar, you're better off doing it first (just as if you were ironing it) by balling a towel in its neck to help retain the shape before attacking the rest of the garment.
For denim pants, it worked well enough. Not quite well enough to completely remove the wrinkles from a day's wearining, but enough to freshen them a bit. I don't have any suits or jackets to test it on at this point, but I imagine it will do the job of getting travel wrinkles out of otherwise neat clothing.
If you're envisioning a quick solution to ironing problems, this isn't it. It's good for spot steaming and those times when you've no other alternatives.

This thing is a joke! I have given it multiple chances during my travels, but it just flat out doesn't work. It barely produces enough steam to put a good fog on the mirror, much less to penetrate your clothes. You are better off hanging your clothes in the hotel bathroom, turning the hot shower on, and closing the door. I found that it creates enough steam to really take out a lot of wrinkles, the downside is you end up wasting a lot of water!

I owned one of these for 4 years; it was awesome but I misplaced it during a move. I bought another one that I used regularly for 6 years (I HATE IRONING); a piece on it finally broke after years of use and so I'm about to get another one. I'm going with the same model-- the Sunbeam. And A'zon has the best price on it!

It takes seconds to fill-- just pull off the handle, pop the top, and fill with water until full. Then plug it in.

Within seriously about THIRTY SECONDS, it's ready to go. Push the "shot of steam" button, and the thing gives you just that... a shot of steam. A few of those, and your wrinkles are gone. Sure, things like heavy cottons may take a few passes, but this thing still does the trick.

Yes, an iron will always give a more "perfect" job, but this one will give you results that are just as good!

My iron decided to break just as I was about to iron a shirt that was to be worn to attend a wedding...what to do?! Grabbed this steamer that's been sitting in our laundry room just waiting to be used. The shirt would have looked better had it been ironed, but this steamer did get out the most obvious wrinkles and left the shirt presentable. Word of warning though, follow the instructions! If you keep pressing on the steam button to get more steam so that you can try and work faster, the steamer will spit on your garment.

An awesome steamer. I'm about to buy my second one after owning my original unit for several years. I'm glad they still make this unit. It gets wrinkles out of everything once you get the technique down. The attachments are crap, but you don't need them. Unless you require creases, there's no need to iron once you learn to use this steamer effectively. It's great for travel too - compact enough to fit well into luggage.

We had a Rowenta travel steamer for years that we loved, but it was in a bag that got lost by the airlines (thanks, Continental!). Unfortunately, Rowenta no longer made the same model, so with heavy hearts we went looking for alternative solutions.

When we saw this Sunbeam steamer, it looked to be exactly the same as the Rowenta, except for the logos. We took a chance, ordered it, and when we got it...tadaaa...there was our old travel steamer! This is exactly the same as our previous Rowenta, and works like a charm.

We've already traveled with the Sunbeam and it works great, just like our Rowenta did, and it should last for years and/or until United (bye, Continental!) loses our bags again.
