Much improved and user friendly sc5.800 model
on 2 November 2013
Having previously owned this models predecessors and had many years of trouble free use, I have recently purchased this particular model. Why particularly I hear asked ? Well partly from product experience, the steam output for this domestic appliance I assert we'll exceeds any of its closest competitors which is essential when cleaning and also reassuring.
As well as providing copious amounts of steam there is an option for vapo rapid function which provides hot water for particularly stubborn floor stains (in my case)
The steam output is variable vis a control switch on the machine itself, also the water reservoir tank is removable for filling or if you prefer can be filled whilst attached to the machine, this is an improvement on the older models as when the tank was empty you had to wait for it to cool before refilling.
On to the steam iron function which I principally used this models predecessor for I cannot praise highly enough the power and ease with which the iron cuts through the toughest dried/creased laundry the nearest thing I can compare it to would be a commercial product. I would not recommend the young or frail using this as it really is powerful.
The other improvements made to this model are tool storage which allows all the sc5.800 tools to be stored on board which is handy.
In summation this is by no means the cheapest steamer out there but speaking with some experience the the steam output and iron capacity really do make jobs much easier. For a steam iron generator alone you can pay in excess of several hundred pounds with this machine you have multi options available open to you.
