  • Okay if you have patience and small jobs

    Sep 26, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: squeege accessory for mirrors/windows, no expensive cloth refills (use old towels/rags), steam - no chemicals
    Cons: Not very portable, short steam cycle, gets very hot, wand is flimsy, heavy-non-detachable power cord

    Summary: I wanted to buy a steam mop to replace my broken Swiffer Wet Jet. I was tired of buying replacement consumables because they were costly. Furthermore, I didn't really like the idea that you were rubbing chemicals into the floor (who knows how many layers ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fairly reasonable cost, cleans in hard-to-reach areas, versatile
    Cons: Hard to (re)fill, time consuming cleaning, shoddy hose, cumbersome power cord

    Summary: I saw the infomercial for this product and saw it for sale at a department store. I took a chance and brought one home. The directions were straight-forward and it seemed like this was going to be a wise purchase. I was about to learn otherwise. First, ... read more

  • Good for 6 months

    Aug 27, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleans impressively and has very good pressure.
    Cons: Faulty engineering, extremely unreliable, poor customer service.

    Summary: The product is a little cumbersome to get started with and has many engineering shortcomings. Mine worked impressively well for 4 months, and then the trigger lock started to stick causing the steam to be continually released and would not stop. After ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Makes the air smell cleaner, Very powerful flow of steam
    Cons: Tedious to fill, Gets too hot, Too many safety concerns if you have kids.

    Summary: I bought this unit LAST NIGHT at Target for $99.99 and let me just say, it's being returned on Monday! I have a small child and previously worked with a company known for making non-toxic cleaning products, so I thought this would be great- no more ... read more

    Pros: It worked okay in the car
    Cons: Handle got so hot I needed a potholder to finish one tank of water.

    Summary: I purchased this product because I thought WOW cleaning is going to be so much easier and faster. Its not. It is great to have for occasional cleaning, but not for regular cleaning. In the bathroom - the steamer removed the hard water stains from ... read more

    Pros: Power, size.
    Cons: Very cheap. Broke on my first use.

    Summary: I bought this locally and was very excited to get that cleaning power that was advertised on T.V. I wish I could tell you that I came home and it did everything they said, but I can't. It broke on the very first try!!! Now, I was in the bathroom with it ... read more

    Summary: I bought this about ten ago and used only once, then kept in the closet for about ten years. The parts and attachements were still in original packaging. I was going to use it today but the safety cap won't open. Push down and twist won't open. I tried ... read more

    Pros: Very hot steam. Gets hot quickly. Cleans tile very well.
    Cons: Flimsy construction. Leaks. Need to wear heavy gloves, and tape leaking areas.

    Pros: strong steam jet which may be good for sanitizing, portable and has lots of attachments
    Cons: simply doesn't work. VERY loud, gets hot, takes time to reheat or cool before refilling.

    Summary: Wow what a disappointment!!! This is ALL I wanted for Christmas! I got the steam blaster jr. with all attachments and went to tackle the grout on my tile floor. Nothing happened except the brush attachment seemed to begin to melt. The noise (or maybe it ... read more

    Pros: Does a good job on hard to reach tight spaces
    Cons: Attachments are cumbersome, the smaller hand held version would have served fine

    Summary: I bought this unit to clean my kitchen and bathroom without harsh chemicals. My unit heats up and steams reliably and it does clean some tough areas. However I find the machine cumbersome and now only use it for specific jobs. It works well on grout and ... read more

    Cons: Don't know how to clean carpets Filtered water refills since tap water is hard.

    Pros: dirt
    Cons: any hard built up grime or grease
