Advantages: great cleaning
Disadvantages: a tad heavy
I had previously owned a hand held steamer very similar to this one but after a few years of use I burnt the element out in it so as a Christmas gift my Nan brought me this steamer from b&Q for £70 which I do think was rather expensive.
It comes with 3 extension tubes that make the handle part longer which are really good for cleaning the tiles in my bathroom as it means I no longer need to climb up to reach the top of the tiles,
It comes with the large brush as pictured above which is good for doing large areas like tiled walls or floors, I never use this on my floor as it leaves lots of streaks behind but it is great for the walls and tiles in my kitchen and bathroom as the steam lifts and dirt and grime really easily without the need for and cleaning sprays and it doesn't get very wet like it would if I was using a cloth to clean.
It has a window cleaning tool which is absolutely fantastic and the main think I missed when my previous steamer broke, you can really easily steam your windows with this and it leaves them smear free as you are not using a cloth to dry them because the steam doesn't get them too wet and the rubber squeegee gets all the water off. This is also ideal for when I am cleaning the fish tanks and viv doors.
There is a funny bendy nozzle with this as well which my other steamer didn't have but this is great for steaming under things like the toilet rim to get the steam where you would normally be able to get it, I keep this purely for the toilet as I don't like the thought of using it in other places after it has been used on the toilet.
You get small brushes that are ideal for cleaning window frames, corners in the kitchen etc and are really good if you get a stubborn stain that needs a scrub. As well as this you get clothes too but you don't have to worry about buying replacements of these, as I haven't I attach a tea towel instead.
This is a really good steamer and it has a shoulder strap on it too so you can use it up a ladder if need be, I have used it to clean every room in my house and even give my carpets a quick blast with it once a month to kill the dust mites, it is great for cleaning my bathroom and kitchen really quickly and easily and saves me money on cleaning products.
One thing I also use this for but it isn't really designed for is defrosting my freezer box in my fridge.
My only complaint of this is that it is a little heavy
Summary: a great steamer
