A two-year warranty and adjustable settings set this steam cleaner apart from others. However, one of the best features of this steam cleaner is its versatility. Not only can it be used on floors, but also counters, carpet, glass and garments. We liked that it can stand up on its own and that you can attach the attachments directly to the water reservoir.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Like having 5 tools in one, as it is capable of steam cleaning, hard floors, upholstery, garments and windows thanks to its handy functions and attachments.
Durable, lightweight, and readily stored, this Steam Mop can work as 5 different tools: steam mop, counter cleaner, carpet cleaner, garment steamer, and glass cleaner.
The built-in handheld steam cleaner with flexible hose is highly convenient.
For lighter marks and messes that need steaming, this is a good option that provides good value for money for the price.
Thankfully, this mop features three adjustable settings that deliver the right among of steam to safely preserve hardwood.
- Bustle
With the free replacement policy and 2 year warranty, plus already cheap price, this one is easier than most to justify trying a brand you may not hear as much of (though it’s one of the older ones in the business).
The extra large water tank (340ml) gives a steaming time of 20-25 minutes – plenty of time to get around and clean those floors before it needs refilling.

What reviewers didn't like

Leaves streaks on some surface.
Many users also did not like that they had to wait for the unit to cool off before replenishing the reservoir, then wait once more for the unit to output a new load of steam.
Elbow in middle of handle breaks easily.
Not for heavier marks and messes – for heavier marks and messes on surfaces, you’ll need to get a proper floor cleaner with a scrubbing rotating brush that uses cleaning formula.
The cord length isn’t long enough for large rooms or long hallways.
