Polti Vaporetto 950 steam cleaner
on 9 March 2009
I have recently purchased one of these and it is by far the best and easiest to use. It is not very big and therefore fairly easy to store. There is about 1 hour of steam time from a correctly filled boiler and all the utensils etc can be packed away along with the machine itself in a strong bag. Everything is provided, including a cloth sock for floor cleaning etc. The power of the steam is excellent and is perfectly controlled by the trigger mechanism which though initially stiff, loosened up a little with use, making it easy to use with one hand, leaving the other free to wipe up the grunge the steam blows away! It far outweighs the Morphy Richards one that has no trigger control, and the Shark, whose quality of material it is made from leaves a lot to be desired. The Polti is easy and immediate to change the fittings without having to wait ages for it to cool down, as the trigger cuts off the steam while you do this. All in, an excellent buy and well worth the money.
