Product Description

Why Steam?

Steam cleaning is a highly effective way to clean your home, using high temperature steam to break down grime and eliminate harmful bacteria. As well as being hygienic, steam cleaning eliminates the need for additional chemical cleaners. The incredible cleaning power of steam can eliminate 99.9% of harmful bacteria around the home, leaving every surface spotless and hygienic for a healthier home environment.

Vax S4 Grime Master

The Vax S4 Grime Master gives you the tough cleaning, grime busting power of steam in a versatile, handheld design. It's great for hygienically cleaning a wide variety of surfaces all around your home--windows, upholstery, tiles, mirrors and much more.

Removes stubborn grease and grime
Removes stubborn grease and grime

The high temperature of the steam breaks down grease and grime, kills bacteria, dust mites and other allergens, helping to keep your home clean and hygienic. As it doesn't use any cleaning solution it's kind to the environment, and its compact design means it's easy to store.

Easy to use

Simply fill up the Grime Master with water, switch it on and wait just two minutes for it to heat up. Once the green light comes on, it’s ready to go. Press the trigger to release the steam. You can use the dial to vary the steam pressure from low to high, depending on the job in hand. A full tank of water provides around 10 minutes steaming time.

7-piece accessory kit

With a 7-piece accessory kit included, you've always got just the right tool for the job. To use one of the tools, first fit the concentration nozzle then attach the tool and twist to lock.

You can use the concentration nozzle on its own to remove soap scum from a bath or shower enclosure and to clean heavily soiled areas in your kitchen. The brush tool is ideal for cleaning a wide variety of surfaces from tiles, sinks, toilets and oven tops, while the squeegee tool leaves your windows, tiles and mirrors gleaming.

For cleaning upholstery or clothes, unclip the squeegee part and attach the upholstery cleaning cloth. This cloth can be washed by hand or in your washing machine, then allowed to dry before using again.

    The unit is ok to handle in operation but it isn't the most comfortable item to hold, esp for longer than a few minutes. The finish on the plastic seams is somewhat imperfect which means you have an uncomfortable line down the grip. Nor is the trigger easy to operate.

    On the plus side it builds steam very quickly and generates a lot of pressure. For general purpose cleaning it is great and did a wonderful job on bathroom tiles, general dirt/grime. However, for the other use, which is sterilisation, I would have to question it's ability. The steam that comes out is under so much pressure it comes out more as a blast of high pressure warm air. You can pass your hand in front of it and feel warm rather than anything that could be described as hot. (I am not responsible if you try this yourself btw for any injuries!)

    It's not really amazing on built up kitchen grime, carbon buildup etc on oven trays/racks. It comes with a brush attachment but this has plastic rather than metal bristles so I think you would be better using a metal brush separate to the cleaner rather than trying to use the attached tool.

    The angle the unit has to be used at (more or less upright) also makes cleaning awkward. If you tilt the unit too far forward (and for most kitchen uses you probably will be) the unit splutters out water.

    In conclusion. It has it's uses, it generates steam quickly and under high pressure but it's limited due to the steam not being particularly hot...it's more akin to a blast of high pressure air than the hot steam I was expecting. It's not the most comfortable item to use and for certain tasks can be downright awkward.

    I have borrowed steam cleaners from friends before but was delighted to get one of my own. I would say this is by far the most compact and easy to use steamer I have used. The steamer can be operated using one hand. (Some of them I have used required you to hold the steamer in one hand and a hose connected to it in the other which is very awkward). This allows you a free hand to steady yourself if you are reaching into corners or a free hand to clean with after using the steamer.

    It comes with a range of attachments - these include a simple 15cm long nozzle, a small circular brush that fits on the end of the long nozzle, a window-cleaning attachment and a couple of elasticated flannel covers that fit into the window cleaner for use on furniture. Of course, you can also use the thing with no attachments at all. There is also a plastic beaker for measuring the correct amount of water that you can pour in to the tank (260ml).

    For those of you who have not used steamers before it does not eliminate the need to use elbow grease but what it does do is make cleaning much easier and quicker. It is also great for crevices that are difficult to clean. The steam forces the dirt on allowing you to wipe it away.

    I have used the steamer on tiles and shower screen in the bathroom. It is great for cleaning the scum of the grout. There is a round brush attachment that comes with the steamer but I always use an old toothbrush with the steamer for this job. It is also great for mirrors, sinks and toilets. What is does is removes the germs that you cannot see as well as they dirt you can see.

    It great to cleaning the inside out outside of oven and grill doors but you cannot use it inside because of the danger with electrics and steam!

    I've seen steam cleaners advertised around the place and they seem like a good idea. So I was happy to get an opportunity to try one out. O.k. so - it is good, it is useful, but it's not going to suddenly turn your home into a gleaming germ-free palace. A little elbow grease is still going to be required and it's not going to take over every cleaning job in the house. But for some jobs, it has quickly made itself pretty well indispensable.

    What do you get for your money? A 3metre/10ft mains cable. That is a sensible length, I think. Long enough to give you flexibility to move around, not so long that you'll be tripping over it. A range of attachments - these include a simple 15cm long nozzle, a small, stiff brush that fits on the end of the long nozzle, a window-cleaning attachment and a couple of elasticated flannel covers that fit into the window cleaner for use on furniture. Of course, you can also use the thing with no attachments at all. And a plastic beaker for measuring the correct amount of water that you can pour in at one time (260ml).

    The instructions are all in pictures - no multiple languages. They are straight-forward. Unscrew the large grey nob and pour in 260ml of tap water. Screw down the nob, plug in, switch on - make sure the safety catch is set to ON while it is heating up. A red light shows that the power is on and a green light signifies when the machine has reached a working temperature. There is also a calibrated switch which allows you to select the power of the steam jet.

    Once the green light is on, flick the safety switch to OFF and press the trigger. That's it really. It takes about 2.5 to 3 minutes to heat up. 260ml of water doesn't seem a huge capacity but it lasts for long enough.
