I have been a happy user of Karcher steam cleaners for over 7 years now, and can hopefully help a couple of the reviewers with points they have raised:

- The 'spinning cap' issue. The safety valve is designed so that it will not release until the pressure in the tank has dispersed. It is not a fault, there is no point getting your bodybuilder friends to try to force it. It is a deliberate design feature. I admit that it is very frustrating to have to wait for the tank to cool before you can top it up when you are half way through a job, but surely that's better than getting scalded by steam?
- Limescale. Try putting some vinegar or lemon juice on the limescale and letting it sit for a while before you attack it with steam. I successfully removed large amounts of built-up limescale from around the taps when I moved into a new house.
- Of course you still have to wipe - or in the case of built up, burned on or very old stains - go over them a few times. The steam will loosen/dislodge/melt dirt, but will not make it 'vapourise', if you'll pardon the pun. Steam makes cleaning easier, it does not make it completely effortless. I do think, though, that it gives a better result than chemical cleaning, and without harming the environment or leaving harsh smells behind.
- As for the reviewer who complained that the steam is very hot, well d'oh!

I bought my Karcher S1122 roughly a week ago (and fully intend to review again after a fuller period of time) having put much time into online research and with thanks to the previous reviewers here. Most people seemed to agree that steam cleaners are great, but I found it somewhat arbitrary in deciding which cleaner to go for.

Firstly, dealing with Mr Kershaw's pique about the cap. I assume he had the same problem my partner had early on; in that the filller cap just goes round and round without gripping the thread. My analysis at the time was fairly blunt; either it's cr*p and has broken or it's a safety feature based on the pressure of the tank whilst hot. Thankfully it was the latter - and we didn't have to draft in a multitude of body builder friends to work this one out. Either way, one sends it back as faulty or it's actually quite a good safety feature - no need to get too worked up about it.

Next. I've now spent nearly four days deep cleaning our home for the first time since we moved in - nearly 7 years ago. I have no doubt that the steam cleaner has made this quicker, easier, less back breaking and more satisfying by far.

It's equally horrifying and reassuring to see how much crud one can prise from the dark, damp corners....

I did take the advice of a previous reviewer, and we hired a carpet cleaner for deep clean of the carpets and I'm happy that I can now maintain the carpets-ish, but that in my usual weekly clean, I'm acheiving much more in a shorter space of time.

The kitchen and bathroom in particular are the areas which have benefitted - and the speed with which I can whizz round the surfaces and tiles is great.

Let's admit it, this gadget will not change your world. You will not be able to throw away all your chemicals (no, it does not remove limescale) and there are areas that will still need some scrubbing. However, it will save you time. It is particularly useful for cleaning tiles and floors. I like using it on floors because they get clean and instantly dry. I've cleaned my kitchen cupboards in half the time it would normally take me. I managed to finally de-grease my cooker hood by first wiping it with vinegar and then steaming off the grease. It is also very good for window cleaning.

All the attachments are useful and the steamer is small and light so that you can wander around the house holding it in your hand.

Have recently purchased the Karcher SC 1122 Domestic Steam cleaner which I find most useful for many tasks. It may not clean your dried in fat in the cooker oven or scum in bathroom surrounds the first time but with some elbow effort you will get them clean . It is then very easy to keep them clean with the steam cleaner. Excellent for tiles , floors and window cleaning. The instruction manual could be improved. To reduce the time for the steamer to reach operating temperature it is advisable to put warm water in the tank. Otherwise, you wait about ten minutes.

Verified Purchase
I really find this good for cleaning the windows. It takes a fraction of the time. The patio door gets lots of fingerprints/mud from the children and this needs additional scrubbing, but for general dust dirt it takes literally 1 minute per window. It is also wonderful for cleaning tiles in the kitchen and bathroom. It is a fantastic labour saving tool.

I was looking for a domestic steam cleaner to revive my carpets, so
went looking for something that had good reviews.

I came across the Karcher SC1122 Mobile Domestic Steam Cleaner.

This seemed to have the most positive reviews. Although priced at £144.95-more than I wanted to spend-refurbished models were available at £79.99 (plus £7 P & P) with 1 years warranty.

Ordered a refurbished one on a Tuesday, it arrived Friday. Gave it a go the same day.

It came with all the accessories & Vax cleaning fluid exactly as described for the new cleaners. Overall condition is excellent- in fact it looks "brand new".

I had it going in less than 15 minutes. That includes waiting the 8 minutes for the water to heat. Very simple to set up & use.

As mentioned in other reviews , the following points need to be mentioned:

1. You get a free facial when using this. The room quickly becomes very steamy. Well, it is a steam cleaner!

2. Initially there will be areas where you will have to do a bit of scrubbing with alternative methods & solutions. But once dealt with you shouldn't have to do that again. Unless you let it get in a similar state again before tackling it.

3. The reservoir cap can't be removed until the steamer has cooled down sufficiently. It's a safety feature. One I would recommend looking for if you are looking at other models.

4. Any areas of flaky paint etc-this will destroy them so be careful.

5. Remember it uses steam-& steam burns. It won't "dispense" the steam until you press a button so you do have control of it. The machine itself doesn't get hot. I would strongly recommend looking for these features if you are considering other models.
