The handle rotates well, but the head of the unit does not turn as sharply as I would have liked to see.

This steam mop from Shark is advertised to “deep-clean and sanitize sealed hard floors,” which include wood, tile, linoleum and vinyl floors.
- Kleen Floor
It’s easy to refile, move and reach to different spots of the house, under the furniture.

Swivel this cleaning body and clean your household from its corners to the smallest spaces in-between-furniture without spending the same amount of time and energy you use when you mop the traditional way.
- Open Handy Stuff
What experts didn't like
A few reports of faulty units that fail to produce steam.
- BestReviews
It was the absolute worst on the spaghetti sauce, taking more than three times as many passes to clean compared to our top pick.
- Top Ten Reviews

It creates some clatter of clicking noise during the mopping.
- Clear to All

Unlike most steam mops we have tested, the Shark Pocket requires manual steam production.
- Modern Castle

Grout may be difficult to clean.
- Kleen Floor
It doesn’t come with an on-off switch so actually, you can’t control the start or finishing steaming by yourself as an individual.
- The Floor Care

The mop’s double-sided cleaning pad might require a little effort when attaching it to the head.
