Top Customer Reviews
1) pressure gone in 1 min
2) lots of water on my sink while heating up the water
3) lots of hot water spurting out with the steam while using it, getting all over my leather seats
Then it hit me. I'm stupid and totally forgot about laws of physics, thermodynamics, and engineering (basically should have read the manual but it's poorly written)
To get the best use out of this steamer, you need to do the following:
1) DON'T OVERFILL THE STEAMER!!! This causes problem #2 and #3 above. Basically you need to fill 1 1/3 of the measuring cup provided (175ml + 75ml). If you overfill the unit like I did, when the unit heats up, hot water will leak out from top from the pressure release valve. You'll also get spurting hot water with initial steam due to the built up pressure and the excess water wanting to spit out (visualize overfilling a water kettle and the water bubbling out when boiling). If you don't overfill, you won't see either of these 2 problems. If you overfilled the steamer, just release the pressure valve until the spurting water stops coming out and you only get steam. Wait and let the pressure build up again and you should only get steam from that point. That way, you won't get hot water all over the place that you did not intend. Basically you need to purge the excess hot water if overfilled.
2) ALWAYS LEAVE IT PLUGGED IN. This causes problem #1 above. When the water heats up, it creates pressure within the steamer. When you depress the button to use the steamer, pressurized steam will come out but the internal pressure will drop until the water heats up again to build up pressure again. When cleaning the car seats, if I had used an extension cord to leave the unit plugged in, it would constantly turn on and off to reheat more water to build up the pressure again. It works best to work in short bursts, wipe down the heated area with a towel and let the unit heat up again til next use. I thought I was running out of water but what I really was running out of was built up pressure. If you fill it as instructed, you can easily have a good amount of steam to finish a sizable job. However, you can use it unplugged like I did initially if there is no outlet nearby. Just realize you only have a short time to steam before pressure runs out and you need to reheat to rebuild pressure. Best use mantra: steam/wipe/reheat/repeat.
3) NO PRESSURE USING IT FOR FIRST TIME. As explained in previous section, you need to build up pressure within the steamer. The likely problem of having no steam after heating it up is that the cap is not tightly closed. If you noticed the cap, it has a rubber washer to provide a tight seal when you close it. You have to press down the cap while tightening the cap so that you can get a tight seal. Don't get gung ho and tighten it too much. All you need to do is get it tight enough to let the rubber washer get a nice seal. You won't build pressure if the cap is loose.
4) WON'T OPEN AFTER USING IT. The problem is that the unit is still pressurized and that makes it a bit harder to loosen the cap (also creates hazard of hot steam coming out!). To resolve this issue, unplug the unit, depress the button to release all the built up steam, and then press down on the cap while loosening the cap. Think of the cap working exactly like a medicine bottle where you have to press down on the cap to loosen it.
5) STEAM IS NOT HOT. Actually, it is hot, but only at the very point of where the steam exits. The steam will cool rapidly as it departs from the nozzle. The optimal working distance is less than 1/4" right where it leaves the steam nozzles. Basically, work as close to the steam nozzle as possible for the various attachments and you'll get good, hot steam.
6) DO I NEED TO USE DISTILLED WATER? Long term yes but I'm too lazy to go out and buy distilled water. Reasoning is same for cloth irons which also recommend distilled water. The problem is the hard minerals in the tap water. As the water steams, it leaves the hard minerals to build up inside the unit. Over time, it can also clog up the steamer nozzles. Using distilled water prevents this mineral build up. Why won't I use distilled water? The $29 I paid for the steamer, it will take a long time for the minerals to build up to where it degrades in performance and I would have paid a lot for distilled water. Basically, I'll buy a new cheap steamer and stick with tap water. If you have a water softener at home, you're all set and don't need distilled water. DO NOT FILL ANYTHING BUT WATER IN THE STEAMER! I would explain why but too lazy to write any more. I'm surprised you're still reading this
In short, don't be lazy and not read the manual. But if you read this, I've covered the key points that you need to know. The reason you have having issues with the steamer is likely due to one of the explanations above.
Congrats for reading this epic of a review and learning from my mistakes.
I like using steam cleaners because I can steam without having to use chemicals. When I worked in the bathroom, it was quick and I just went behind with a microfiber cloth to dry it off (there are raised areas that I need to wipe down after steaming). I’m don’t have an aversion to bathroom cleaners, but I’m trying to go as chem-free as I can because some of them can actually leave me rather breathless. Steam cleaning, of course, doesn’t create that sort of problem.
One of my favorites is working with my blinds. I simply attached the tip nozzle and went back and forth on the blind slats. It loosens all the grunge and once again, I take that microfiber cloth to wipe down. Mind you, this is a job that used to take me ages, but they come out super clean in just a few minutes. I only have one set of blinds, but I used to take Windex and a paper towel and do each slat one at a time. Very time consuming to say the least. It’s spring cleaning time and the Xtech is a help with getting some of the harder jobs done.
I have tried to do the oven, but that is much more labor intensive. You can do your microwave, tub, tile, stovetop pans, and on and on with a steam cleaner and I’ve done them all. When you set up the Xtech, make sure that when you put on an attachment you turn clockwise it so it will lock. They will pop off and startle you if you don’t. Been there, done that with another steam cleaner. I think that sometimes people think they have a defective product when in reality, they are setting the steamer up incorrectly.
My suggestion would to use distilled water in the steamer. I can buy a gallon for around a dollar in the grocery store. It makes it quite easy because you don’t have to do the clean the cleaner bit and in the long run the Xtech will perform better. There are a lot of cautionary notes, but I’d suggest reading them. Read them first because if you don’t, you may end up ruining the very item you wanted to clean.
I’ve used enough steam cleaners to know that you don’t use this steamer on something like a parquet floor or it will pop. It’s powerful enough to peel paint and does. It will peel paint (I’ve done it) so just make sure you think about the type of surface you’ll be working with. I haven’t done any windows with the squeegee because it has to be 40°+ and it’s not quite there yet. I’m using the Xtech inside only right now, but there are plenty of surfaces to clean. One thing that always amazes me is when I take this cleaner and work around my sink fixtures. It just pulls a lot of dirt away from the edges and I can actually see it.

Setting up the Xtech steam cleaner is very quick and easy. The bottom pops off so you can easily fill the reservoir which has a capacity of 0.25 liter (8.45 ounces). A little steam goes a long, long way. It takes less than a minute to heat up and you’re ready to go. Once again, make sure when you put on an attachment, make sure it is secure by turning it clockwise. I don’t recall hearing it snap, but when I wiggled it a bit I was assured it wasn’t going anywhere. The Xtech has bursts of steam initially (getting ready to roll), but when it gets going it’s steadier. It’s a really nice, powerful steamer that certainly does the job in the chem-free manner I prefer.
Sample provided for review.
The product took about 2-3 minutes to heat up enough to produce steam. There was a lot of excess water coming from the flathead attachment, which kind of made my clothes wet. It would dry in 10-15 minutes but driving to work in a wet 3-Peice suit is kind of uncomfortable.
As far as cleaning, the steamer is extremely powerful. It produces a lot of steam and with the narrow attachments, it makes cleaning a breeze. The steam comes out with a lot more force and doesn't require a lot of scrubbing.
Heats up in about a minute it two.
Comes with a lot of versatile attachments.
Huge water reservoir.
Easy to use (just plug it in).
Power cord isn't long enough.
It drips a lot of excess water from the nozzle.
