Product Description

Product Description

Polti vaporetto
Vaporetto has removed the need to use chemical cleaning products to get rid of dirt, dust mites and allergies.

Hygiene born of steam

The power of steam de-greases and deep-cleans naturally. So it is only natural that a steam cleaner makes the job of cleaning much easier. This makes Polti your best friend in the home.

Vaporetto has eliminated the need to use chemical cleaning products to get rid of dirt, dust mites and allergies: you can now deep-clean the home without polluting, using the power of steam alone.

No-one but Polti can boast thirty years' experience and specific know-how in the production of home appliances using steam. Choose Polti to get the benefit of exclusive technologies which have been proven successful and guaranteed by Europe's leading brand of steam appliances.

Polti vaporetto
The Vaporetto steam cleaner can eliminate dust mites, which are so often responsible for allergic reactions.

Steam for deep cleaning

Vaporetto is a powerful steam appliance for deep cleaning any room of your house. Steam temperature and pressure are capable of detaching and dissolving dirt, eliminating bacteria and dust mites as well, which are so often responsible for allergic reactions.

Vaporetto makes chemical cleaning products unnecessary, saving money and helping to protect the environment and your health.

With steam you can save a lot of time on your weekly cleaning routine. Use it regularly and after a few weeks you'll find that your house is cleaner and healthier, even in the hardest to reach corners.

The tests carried out by Cambridge University and Lyon Dermatological Hospital has demonstrated the effectiveness of Polti steam against dust mites (eliminated 98%) and allergens (eliminated 86%). In addition, British Allergy Foundation awarded Vaporetto its "Seal of Approval" for its effectiveness in eliminating mites.

Polti vaporetto
Clean deeper, faster, and without the need for harsh chemicals.

Why clean with steam?

The power of steam at 120°C has a cleaning power unrivalled by even the latest new cleaning products. Steam is used every day in cleaning and maintenance in places that demand particularly strict hygiene. Steam is used to sterilise medical instruments in doctors' offices and hospitals. And the power of steam saves energy and helps clean better and faster.

Vaporetto's steam is ideal for "hygienic" cleaning. "Hygienic" means no contact with bacteria, germs, dust mites, funguses and pollens, giving pathogens and carriers of disease no opportunity to do their evil work. Not even the tiniest particle of dirt escapes the steam, making it effective against common dust allergies. High temperatures effectively eliminate funguses and bacterial cultures as well.

Polti steam is a dry steam which leaves the house perfectly clean and dry.

The Vaporetto Pocket comes with all the accessories you need to get the job done.

Comes with a wide range of accessories

Included with your Vaporetto steam cleaner is wide range of accessories and tools to make the job of cleaning that little bit easier. There are extension hoses, to help you get to those hard to reach places, and a range of different types of brush attachments. There is a large brush for your floor, and three smaller brushes for more tricky areas.

There is also a squeegee which is designed to wash glass windows without leaving marks or halos and produce a clean result which lasts longer. This accessory also removes the invisible film that detergents leave on windows that grease and dust stick to.

The 120° Concentrator can be used (with or without the round brush) to clean toilets and bathroom fixtures, cooking hobs and fridges but is also ideal for cleaning grout between tiles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent steam cleaner 17 Mar 2011
By Moglie
Just wanted to reiterate what the last reviewer wrote, this is an excellent machine. If you read the instructions and follow them, you will be very happy.

I took the day off work today to do a spring clean and my little Vaporetto has been on the go all day, it has done the fridge, the oven, the microwave oven, the dishwasher, kitchen floor, kitchen units, bathroom floor, hob.. need I go on, it is brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars IGNORE THE LOW RATING REVIEW... 19 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase
my sister recommended I get one of these from John Lewis who retail them around the £70 mark. I looked around and found the exact same model on Amazon. I was hesitant when I saw some of the really negative reviews about leaking water and it not working. I went ahead anyway because I trust my sisters opinion more and secondly my family use an industrial strength vaporetto to clean a top end B&B every day. So, since it seemed like good value I thought I'd have a go. Now let me paint a picture for you to give some idea of how good I think this thing is.

I recently bought a rather tired house, recently vacated by two elderly people who smoked alot. There is damp, there are nicotine stains on the ceilings. The carpets are at best in a revolting state. To top this off, I own a hyperactive dog that delights in spreading hair and mud and a cat that is I suspect just a mass of fur and a pair of eyeballs. I suffer from eczema and have an ongoing battle with allergies generally and allergic rhinitus. Its a pretty grim picture. I hoped rather than expected the vaperetto might help.

A quick word about the leaking water. Rubbish. When the steamer first starts water comes out which is normal and states as such in the manual. If you leave the handgun alone while I don't know, you say go to hold back a mental dog from eating the postman who wants you to sign for something, the steam will cool to water and you'll need to hold the gun over the sink for literally 2 or 3 seconds to loose the water and fill the hose with steam again, but that's it and what's more its completely normal, not a design flaw. It's basic physics and chemistry. When you start to use it, hold it over a sink for a second or two while the water turns to steam and you're ready to go. End of.

4.0 out of 5 stars Polti Steam Vaporetto Pocket Steam Cleaner 19 Mar 2012
By Alan G.
I found the Steam Cleaner to be more than adequate for general use around the home. It is expecially useful for cleaning ovens, hobs and floors, which dry in about 30 seconds. It is also good for cleaning the parts of the car, which normally do not get cleaned, such as around the engine compartment and the doors. For its size and price, a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant wee machine 10 Jun 2010
At last a steam cleaner that does it all as far as I'm concerned! Good price too. I leave the brush attachment in my cupboard, already "made up" ie extension poles in place, so easy to clip in to do floors and switch back to steam gun only for other jobs. Just what I wanted.

I purchased my Polti Vaparetto Steam cleaner just before Christmas, from John Lewis.

I have some health problems and I needed to do some high cleaning on tiles/paintwork as well as floors, and I felt this might provide an answer. Does it? Well, to some extent. 1) I found the instruction booklet useless. It needs clearer graphics, and a step by step guide to the various aspects of cleaning."2) I needed to 'experiment' before I got the hang of it. New users need to be aware that water, and not steam, comes out at first, so you need to be near a sink to get rid of this. 3) When the machine finally emits steam, this does not clean the surface, it LOOSENS the dirt!!! It is essential to use the cotton covers after the dirt is loosened(or in some instances on less heavily soiled areas, while the steam is coming out) The machine came with very few of these covers, it was necessary to purchase more before I really got the hang of things. The covers do NOT fit well. They fall off while in use. I find the body of the machine heavy to carry upstairs. So much for the negatives:

Good points. Floor stains of long-standing were removed when the steam nozzle was directed at close range. Dirt around plastic double glazing was forced out, under pressure. I liked the idea of hot steam being directed down the kitchen sink to melt grease, and down the loo pan to kill lingering bacteria. Although I think Polti need a kick up the backside for their poor instructions and lack of pads, my house has never been so clean.It STAYS!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent machine. 28 Aug 2011
By ACB (swansea) TOP 50 REVIEWER
Got this for its portability. (Actually for my wife). Light and versatile. Steam powered and powerful. Especially useful when things become more difficult by manual, hands and knees old-fashined methods. Useful attachments. Dirt and grease effective. Floors and walls. Have earned brownie points. I can manage it although am reluctant to admit it. No technical problems experienced. Much recommended.
