I received this item today with some reservation having read negative reviews, I have just steamed two formal shirts , three polo shirts and two sports tops tops in about 15mins.
There are some problems , the formal shirts are not as good as when ironed but with practice I think could get close , steaming from the inside got rid of some difficult creases the polo shirts turned out great and as for the sports tops no shiny iron marks and easy peasy
No leaks I can see and my hose has a black tubing cover that stops one getting burnt, less room needed than an ironing board and easy to just switch on and go in 30 a minute.
The only thing that is annoying is the pole it's too short I'm 5'11 can only assume used small actors in the ads and the pole wobbles about a bit , easier to hang garments on a door and put unit on a chair which works fine.

I also bought the travel steamer, but on receiving a bit large, thought would be less bulky , handy if going for a long weekend in UK not sure would want to cart one in a suitcase abroad, but having said that steaming ones t-shirts probably would give a couple of wears so less clothes to pack.

From what I have seen so far think a good purchase

I bought this as I have a tiny flat and hate ironing boards - they either have to be left open all day or placed away. I rather do neither. Tobi is a good substitute although I think the manufacturers should perhaps include a mittin that is steam proof so you can wear it on one hand and steam the material using the mittined hand to support the steam hose all the way down. The bottom of the garments get left out and you are always tempted to use your hand to hold it - not a very pleasant experience. (have the phone handy for emergencies)- or a bulldog clip that is large enought to hold the end of the garment perhaps? The other thing that is annoying is you place the garment on the hanger and start steam and the garment is all over the place. The hand gadget mentioned above would help it a lot! I like the product and I have seen it used at fashion shows and cat walks but I can see myself burning my hand on every occasion - if the manufacturer is reading this and you invent said mitten - contact me please I will place my order.

I dithered about buying this product due to the mixed reviews. It is clearly a product that you love or hate - just like Marmite.
I looked at the professional steamers on the market which are about ten times as expensive as Tobi and decided to give the cheaper product a chance.
I really love my Tobi!
It steams shirts, T-shirts, polo shirts, rugby shirts, trousers, jeans, jersey dresses and suits very well.
I primarily wanted it to steam items that are difficult to iron successfully eg items with embellishments and that become shiny under the iron unless pressed with a cloth. Jersey dresses and tops which drape are difficult to iron but steam really well.
By leaning the ironing board against a wall and hanging trousers by the cuffs it is possible to press creases in the right places whilst steaming out the ones you don't want.
If you are happy with the results obtained using an iron, use the iron for that item and save Tobi for the fiddly things; I just find the Tobi quicker on most items than the iron.
I have steamed my hand a couple of times and taken the advice of a previous reviewer and now use an oven glove; I haven't found the steamer head handle to be too hot to handle though.
The telescopic pole is a tad flimsy and the hose could have been a bit longer, but it isn't an expensive product.
The more vertical you can keep the head at the extent of the hose the more successful the steaming (this prevents a build up of condensation and any spitting).
If you buy it as a supplement to your iron rather than a replacement you shouldn't be disappointed.

This is a brilliant purchase, bought it to speed up ironing, which it does once you get the hang of it, then I steamed the beds, curtains, went mad around the house with it and it did what it says, then we started decorating and had trouble getting the paper off the wall we used it for that, brilliant, what more can you ask for such a small price you have a very helpful gadget which is ready to use in 30 seconds. What are you waiting for give it a try you will not be dissapointed.

Verified Purchase
I bought the Tobi because I thought it would speed up the ironing chore (which I hate). I was very disappointed. DON'T buy this to do your every day ironing. It is good on T-shirts, sweat-shirts etc., curtains & upholstery, items that you would otherwise take to the dry-cleaner. As for the rest of the laundry, I prefer to stick to my steam iron. Conclusion: Buy as an addition to your iron not a replacement.

I love this thing! I just never got the hang of ironing and this is perfect! Bearing in mind the criticisms I read I used an oven mitt to hold garment, and I also chose to use my own wardrobe rail over the pole to steam the clothes, though the pole is still useful for holding the steamer. I find it very quick. Maybe it could have been designed a little better, but overall a great investment!
