Value for money
on 25 June 2014
Chose this model because it was relatively inexpensive & we just wanted to try out a steamer. (I'd previously had a floor steamer that broke, so I wasn't up for spending lots until I knew if it was going to be useful).
This model is good value for money at the basic end of the market. It's a bit plasticky, but sturdy enough & glides easily enough on its wheels. The water reservoir is easy to fill, but tends to drip a bit & there's always a bit of water left in the bottom of the machine. The flip-out hanger can collapse at inconvenient moments & the power lead is unnecessarily skimpy. There's nothing to say when it's ready - you just have to keep an eye on the head & watch for the steam. It does come with a bag of accessory heads for different tasks.
I've used it for clothes & to steam furniture (that's when the short cable becomes an irritation) & it does a perfectly good job. Not without minor gripes, but for the price, it's a worthwhile starter machine.
