The heat up is fast, faster than my Jiffy J-2000, which is a much more expensive steamer. The unit, for the price, is built fine. The telescopic pole is a little flimsy and a little too short in my opinion, but the hook provided to hang your garment on is easy to use. I also like the hook to hang the hose on when not in use. I prefer these hooks over my Jiffy J-2000. The included attachments make steaming easier provided you're using them for their intended purpose. Most modern steamers include castors which is a convenient. This unit should include some locking castors for use on hard smooth flooring.
Onto maintenance issues...this unit WILL clog eventually if you use tap water. Do not use tap water, use de-mineralized water with any steamer. It is a pain to have to clean out a steamer when it could have been prevented. I did not listen to this advice in any manual I have read about steamers and today I cleaned out 3 years of mineral build up from my Steamfast. I will also be cleaning out my Jiffy J-2000. The Steamfast would produce steam steadily and then about 60 seconds in it would taper off to nothing. Figuring it was clogged I eventually just decided to take it apart today and see if I could clean it myself. No amount of vinegar steaming through this unit would do anything - HOURS of steaming with vinegar. From disassembly to cleaning to reassembly it took about 20 minutes. Easy peasy anyone can do it. Many pipe cleaners later it's working perfectly again. I included pictures of the before and after. It was disgusting. If you decide to take this unit apart yourself, be careful with the hose it, it could crack and they do not sell this part, they just want to sell you another unit!
For the price this unit is absolutely worth it if you intend to take care of it. Steaming is easier, safer, and more efficient than ironing.
I use the steamer with tap water and clean out the tank at least once a day to remove some mineral deposits. Every month or two, i use vinegar to more thoroughly clean out mineral deposits. I accept this as part of using the steamer and with using tap water. I have taken a couple of them apart and cleaned out deposits inside as well.
Having purchased a number of units over the years, I have seen differences as Steamfast made changes to the SF-407. And there are differences in quality of steam from unit to unit. Some units produce steam easily while others struggle more. Some units may overheat and the unit's internal shutoff mechanism will trigger frequently. I've noticed that some units' steam quality may actually get better with use. I've had only one unit that just did not produce good enough steam. Even with these inconsistencies, I rely on the SF-407 to produce decent steam with the hack listed below.
HACK FOR MORE CONTINUOUS STEAM: The steamer outputs steam but periodically needs to add more water to boil in the internal tank. It can be frustrating if the steamer does this while you want to steam something continuously. My solution: First, add plenty of water to the external tank. Turn on the machine. Then, lean the machine forward at 30 degrees -- lean the machine so the back 2 wheels are off the floor. Use the pole to apply leverage. This fills the internal tank more fully so it doesn't have to refill so often. You will see bubbles as water leaves the external tank and the internal tank fills with water. When you see no more bubbles, lean the steamer back so it rests on all 4 wheels again. The steamer will take a little more time to produce steam because it needs time to boil the extra amount of water in the internal tank. You will get decent continuous steam with less frequent refilling. After using it a while, the internal tank boils off most of the extra water and starts refilling like usual. You can refill the internal tank again by tipping the machine forward. This probably would not be recommended by the company, but I use this method to get better continuous steam for longer periods of time. Note: Be careful if you remove the external tank and replace it, this hack adds water to the area holding the external tank. Replace the external tank slowly. If you drop the external tank quickly, you will splash water out.
HACK FOR DRAINING OUT MINERAL DEPOSITS: The steamer will lose quality of steam easily as it ages with usage of tap water. Cleaning deposits out everyday becomes necessary. After using the steamer, you will drain the internal tank of water and deposits. The manual tells you to wait 15 minutes for the water to cool. But if you do, the mineral deposits harden to surfaces inside the machine. To remove these deposits, drain the water while it is still hot/warm. Just avoid touching the hot water as it drains out. First, add plenty of water to the external tank. Put a very large bowl/container to hold the drained out water or have the unit placed near some drain. Then, undo the unit's drain screw and remove it completely. (Use a tool like pliers to loosen the drain plug. Afterwards, you will want to screw it back on later tightly to avoid water leaking out.) Water will drain out. Periodically, tilt the unit forward and then backward so water is released from and then filled into the internal tank. This cleans out the internal tank more completely. If the unit's internal tubing becomes clogged, the water will only trickle out of the drain. Replace the drain plug and then pick up the unit a couple inches off the floor and tap it down against the floor a couple of times on its 4 wheels to dislodge mineral deposits. Open the drain plug and continue to drain water. You will notice cloudy water with small particles of mineral deposits in the drained out water.
Now, regarding durability I can't say anything yet, as I just got it. I do use distilled water because here we have hard water. I'll update if something goes wrong with this unit.
