  • Steam Wizard Really Steams

    Nov 8, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small, Light Weight, Great Steam Production
    Cons: Pricey from Sharper Image, vacuum action needs improvement

    Summary: I recently purchased the Steam WizardŽ by Sharper Image. It is really a very nice hand-held steam cleaner. It is the first small steam cleaner that I've found that actually produces real steam. This makes a real difference when cleaning your carpet or ... read more

    Pros: Gives off real steam...Is a small size easy to store...Has great vacuum power.
    Cons: Doesn't get out stains as promised... Steam actually sets some stains.

    Pros: Small, okay for cleaning up wet messes, comes with long cord.
    Cons: Too heavy, sucks at sucking, does not perform as advertised.

    Summary: The Good Can get "almost new" model via Sharper Image Auctions for way less than the price in the catalogue! Small enough to store underneath my bed. If one is starting with a brand new or recently cleaned carpet ... read more

    Pros: Strong Steam, Relatively Compact, Long Power Cord, Cheap on Ebay
    Cons: Heavy, Not Enough Suction Power, Hard to Clean.

    Summary: When I received the steam wizard, I expected 'magical' results. However, despite not living up to my expectations, it did still impress me enough to recommend the product. It was about a month ago I spilled some Tom Yum Soup (Thai Food) on my ... read more

  • A great vacuum and steamer

    Jun 19, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Really sucks! True steam
    Cons: Pricey if you didn't get it at auction

    Summary: I got this at an auction for $60. Honestly I wouldn't pay over $100 for this thing, but for $60 I think it's a great price. The vacuum really sucks!-- I mean that in a good way. The suction power is comparable to the Shark EuroPro vacuum (that small ... read more

    Pros: Compact. Lightweight.
    Cons: Read directions first. Time consuming.

    Summary: I first bought this unit at Sharper Image when we bought a Puppy. We have off-white carpet around the house so we need something that would clean our carpet istantly when our Puppy makes a mess. For this unit to work, you really have to read ... read more

    Pros: Great suction for its size. Great steam action.
    Cons: Steam doesn't take everything out. Also, the attachments are not the greatest.

    Summary: I purchased my unit through Sharper Image's auction site. Mine cost a mere $60.00. It was $60.00 well spent! Despite the last reviewers comments about water and other waste leaking through the unit, I have never had that problem. The vacuum has great ... read more

    Pros: Handy as a mini wet vacuum
    Cons: Failed to adequately clean even fresh spills

    Summary: I live in an apartment with low, tight pile carpeting. I have two small dogs who sometimes have accidents in the house. I wanted something quick and easy to clean up the occasional messes they make. I heard about the Sharper Image steamer from a friend ... read more

  • OK BUT....could use improvements

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great for small areas, gets stains out using steam
    Cons: rather heavy for some things like drapes, you have to spray the carpet if you want to use cleaning fluid: no reservoir for cleaners

    Summary: I got the Sharper Image Steam Wizard a few months ago, when I saw the ad on tv. I've since gotten all kinds of mailers in the mail regarding it, but at the time I just saw the info-mercial. I thought the thing was cordless. I guess I should have looked ... read more

    Pros: Good suction Heats/steams water pretty well.
    Cons: Loud. Hard to clean. No brush up front. Expensive for a not-so-good product.
