Better than a steam Iron

onMay 23, 2013
This gadget takes a bit longer to warm up and get ready than a flat iron but it is easier to use. It does not permanently press wrinkles into a garment the way a flat iron can. Also no chance of burning the fabric due to improper use. On a cotton mens shirt once the machine is at useable temperature and produces steam consistently it gave very good results. Heavier wrinkles require more time and slower use of the steam head. For heavy permanent wrinkles a flat iron used first and then the steamer after would handle any possibility. I bought this gadget on sale and am really happy with the results I get. A flat iron requires some degree of skill but the steamer is fairly idiot proof. It just requires a bit of patience. On the cotton shirt there was no shrinkage due to heat and no damage to the garment. It does require a bit of time to dry and cool afterwards.

My new clothes Steamer

onApril 17, 2013
I have bought a couple clothe steamer from the local discount giant I had to return them as both were defective after a few times using them. I searched EBay and other sites looking for a replacement and found a little more expensive model at the Sears site. After reviewing the product on line I decided to order this steamer. I have been using it several times a week to clean my dressup clothes and find that it does a excellent job. I am glad I decided to check out the Sears on line catalogue. I have since ordered a few more things from the online site.

Does not do the job

onJanuary 15, 2012
It spits water!!!!! It takes forever before it gets hot again when steaming off wrinkles from a cotton shirt and does not do a good job. I rather pay more and purchase a professional one or go back to ironing.
Pros: looks good
Cons: Not well constructed, to long to get hot, does not steam the wrinkles away, spits water

Great for getting wrinkles out of t-shirts or light weight cotton. Could not handle dress shirts or heavier. It did heat up quickly. Spat water a bit, but not so much that it was a concern. Just did not perform well on anything heavier than 100% cotton fleece. I did research before I bought, but despite having good reviews from others, I was disappointed and returned it. Save your money!!!!
Pros: Compact

Compact Steamer

onJuly 10, 2009
This model is really compact and easy to use. If you like, you can just leave it set up for those last minutes touches. It puts out a lot of steam and is very easy to handle. I find it not as effective on cotton clothing...but excellent for removing the wrinkles from silk or polyester clothing.
It is self-cleaning and has an automatic shut-off. The attachments are handy in any laundry room.
