H150811 - SteamFast Handheld Steam Cleaner
I never got ample use of this item....still in a box for trash!
Hand held steam cleaner
LOVE this thing! I can't believe I have never heard about this! Every house should come with one! It is so easy to use. It's like going around with a spray bottle, except it's plugged in and it removes EVERYTHING!!!! The reviews that say the water runs out too soon I understand, but I have learned the trick. When you think it's run out, it hasn't!! And when you unplug it to refill......you can still use the steam that is building up to clean some more! I am so thrilled with this!!!!
not up to par
I bought this steamfast to replace my old brand that finally gave out. I am frankly disappointed. It does heat up quickly but as others have stated it becomes empty way too quickly--I think because it spews hot water every time you hit the button, making a watery mess. I love the steam for cleaning toilets. Nothing else can get into all the nooks and crannies, but this does not compare in any way to my old one! I wish I had sent it back! Oh well, live and learn!
I found the product is poorly insulated in the handle as well as the activation button, which became too hot to continue to push. Had to place one heavy cotton glove inside another to hold on to the handle and continue with my cleaning project. The water reservoir capacity is inadequate...to small (6 oz).
I bought this several years ago and love it. It is quiet and puts out a lot of steam for about 15 minutes - plenty of time for me. I use it in my bathrooms and kitchens. It really "blasts" dirt and grime from cracks and crevices, and I like not having to use chemicals.
I purchased this product some time ago, used it in my bathroom and loved it. I am trying to use it today at my mom's and ABSOLUTELY cannot get the lid to come off. Searced the net and see that others have the same problem. Totally useless for me now!!! NOT happy
It does work, but.....
I received this about two weeks ago. I used it in my bathroom and it worked okay, but, it seemed like I just started and it was out of steam. I had to stop and refill it 4 times. It wouldn't be bad having to refill it several times, but you have to wait until it cools off before you can add more water. If you try to add water when it is still hot, it just spits it back out. Then you plug it back in, and have to wait again for it to heat up. I guess it's good if you have just a small area to do. Like maybe around the toilet or the faucets. My bathroom is very small, and like I said, I had to stop 4 times to refill.
I read the reviews on this before I bought it, and thought I would take a chance anyway...I kind of wish I hadn't.
This product is ok. It took out some stuff that I haven't been able to get out in my bathroom. But my toilet gets bad, and it didn't even really clean that. The machine is also a little loud - if my phone was ringing while I was using this, I definitely wouldn't be able to hear it. Also, as some of the other reviews stated, it gets kind of hard to hold after a while. My arm really started to hurt after just using it on my shower. It also does leave everything wet, and it run out of water VERY quickly. I have to keep refilling it constantly, but I have to let it cool down a little bit before I can even remove the cap.
I guess this product would be good for light clean-up jobs, or just to sanitize everything, but other than that, I don't really recommend it. I am going to keep it for my light jobs, but I also want to invest in the bigger steamer with the great reviews for my heavier work.
NOW THAT I AM IN MY GOLDEN YEARS I TRY TO FIND THINGS TO MAKE MY (CLEANING) LIFE EASIER. I WAS SO EXCITED WHEN I RECEIVED MY STEAMFAST HANDHELD STEAM CLEANER. I COULD NOT WAIT TO TRY IT OUT. BOY WAS I SURPRISED. IT IS A DUD. DOES NOT DO WHAT IT IS ADVERTISED TO DO. I WAISTED MY MONEY. NOW IT IS BACK TO THE OLD BACK BENDING HAND SCRUBBING METHOD I HAVE ALWAYS USED,
Used it 3 times , then it just stopped working. had to send it back
NO MORE SCRUBBING
The negative reviews on this product almost stopped me from purchasing it, but I really wanted to try a steam cleaner to make cleaning easier. This unit is small and not heavy, plus it has a very long cord. Yes, it only holds a small amount of water but it is effective. I was able to clean in places where otherwise I would have been using a toothbrush or a q-tip -- around handles in the bathroom sink, shower door, etc. I love it. It doesn't take up much room and gets the job done. It heats up in a couple of minutes and the steam is hot -- no more coughing due to harsh cleaners. It is the best household cleaner I have. I have steam cleaned my sponges I use in the kitchen, my cutting board -- with no chemicals. I love it.
Great idea, unit is very heavy after only a few minutes and does a so so job. nothing to brag about at all. I am returning mine today.
