4.0 out of 5 stars Efficient & easy to use. A good buy., 22 Aug 2013

This review is from: Polti Vaporetto Evolution Steam Cleaner (Kitchen & Home)
Bought this a couple of weeks ago.Very easy to set up and use. Made the rhino flooring in the kitchen and utility look a lot brighter.Grease/dirt round the built-in hob unit was blasted away. Prior to having the polti I'd frequently scrubbed the same area with a toothbrush, obviously not well enough judging by what came out!! Kitchen work surfaces and tiles also came up really well.Experimented cleaning a greasy oven door.It did the job but the area between the glass sheets in the oven door had condensation trapped there, so had to heat up the oven for five minutes to get rid of it.Gave the kitchen window a blast of steam.The squeegee didn't perform well--much too stiff--it could do with a more flexible blade.However, it dried quickly using a linen cloth---which rather defeats the object of the exercise, but was much faster than spraying/leathering/buffing up, or whatever people choose to do.
Cleaned the kitchen windowsill.Suspected the paint at one end of this needed renewing and blasting it with steam started to lift the paint off, so I was right--but it did clean it.
Whilst I'm not going to be cleaning through the house every week with this machine I can see that it's going to save me a lot of time/effort in keeping the place spick and span when I do want to give one area a good clean.
One downside--if, like me, you have hair that goes wavy/curly in a damp atmosphere be prepared for a whole new hairstyle!!
Oh yes, in the video why was the woman ( and why a woman??) spraying steam around the room prior to working on the fiddly bits?? Was this to dislodge cobwebs/dust, aerate the room, add humidity. Who knows!!

Vaporetto. Just used it for the first time and it took hours for the lights to go out to tell me it was ready to work. I gave up and switched off. Did I fill the tank too full with water? I will try again with less water but if the same thing happens I will return it to the shop
