    Summary: Scunci Steamer SS-1000 On my quest to find another cleaning steamer for my house and bird cages, my gadget man, found the Scunci Steamer SS-1000, bought it, and brought it home. “Here” he said, “I think you will like this ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use, has good attachments, powerful
    Cons: Has a smaller tank but gives me 20 minutes of steam

    Summary: This I got used on craigslist for $20. I figured even if it didnt work well, it wasnt like I spent the full $60 on it. So when I got it home I filled it with water and waited for it to get hot, worked excellent on our tub, baseboards, and tile. I really ... read more

    Pros: Cleans the impossible.  Unlimited uses. Cleans places never reached with standard cleaning methods.
    Cons: Must stop to wait while the steam pressure builds back up. 

    Summary: I bought this steamer (may not be the same model but looks exactly the same) about 5 years ago after watching an infomercial and it's still working.  I love the way it cleans.  It will find grime that you didn't even knew you had!  If I ... read more

    Pros: Practically none except for disinfecting
    Cons: useless for most household cleaning chores

    Summary: On the TV infomercial, they seemed to make it seem like this product were so great. They happen to have a retail store at a shopping mall near my home, so I just went and purchase one. On the very day of purchase, I decided to try it out on some grease ... read more

    Pros: Nice carrying bag for all the attachments. Works well on a lot of surfaces.
    Cons: Didn't last long. Uncomfortable to hold after a while.

    Summary: I purchased the steamer at a local drugstore chain. I think I paid around $50.00 for it. First, there were no instructions with it which was annoying but it isn't hard to figure out. You fill it with water using the supplied measuring cup, close the ... read more

    Pros: Heats fast @ 5 min., Cuts through just about anything with a little extra effort
    Cons: If anything, the 11 ounce fill, an option to add a cutter (degreaser)

    Summary: I put off buying one of these units after reading dismal reviews from other users on typical product review sites. I received one of these this past Christmas (2006) and was hopefully optimistic about it's performance. When a new kitten (not litter ... read more

    Pros: De-gunks wet soap scum and other wet messages in crooks and crannies
    Cons: SO LOUD, leaves a wet, dirty mess. It stopped working at 1 year.

    Summary: I bought this after seeing the infomercials on TV. I got it at a local Target store, we paid about $65.00 I think. And I really like it, for many things. It was easy to figure out how to use, came with a couple of different nozzles, including a ... read more

    Pros: Not a one that stands out...
    Cons: Doesn't remove much of anything. Awkward to hold while using.

    Summary: Boy! It makes a lot of noise! And boy! It can frizz your hair in under five minutes using it in a small bathroom! This is one of those products you really REALLY want to work. But in actual use it pales in comparision to what you see on the infomercial. ... read more

    Cons: It's a more work than on TV

    Summary: My 21 year old daughter has been doing the heavy cleaning as a way to pay rent while looking for a job. Now that she is working, I had to take that back on. I am highly sensitive to chemicals and even got sick if I went in the bathroom too soon after she ... read more
