Not what I expected but its serviceable
November 10, 2014
So I got this to step up my interior detailing skill as well as clean up some door jams on a recent older car purchase. It comes with clear instructions and almost enough accessories to accomplish what I set out to do. It works fine and will steam for about 45-50 minutes as indicated but its not a dry steam so with interior you need to make sure you don't overuse on seats/carpet. It doesn't do much on exterior jobs like wheels/ door jams so dont get your hopes up. I mean it will clean but no better than you could do with Iron X/ or DP Exterior cleaner and a detail brush. Other thing to not as when its peculating and building up steam when you release trigger it will shoot out hot water for a second before stem comes out so you have to mindful of that when doing interior of car. I also tried on bathroom tiles/grout and household cleaning and it did nothing on tile/grout but did ok on sinks and carpet spot treating in house. Overall it wasn't a total waste of money but was hoping it would be better than I could get at Harbor Freight and think I could have got the same quality for much less money. One of those times where made in USA didnt work out for me.....
ProsMade in USA Good for small carpet/upholstery spot cleaning and light household cleaning and disinfection Works good on light window cleaning.
ConsDoes nothing on door jams of note nor wheels and other light to medium exterior cleaning tasks.
Good Machine, but Not a Good Long Term Pro Solution
May 28, 2014
I've had this machine for just over year, and have probably 25-30 cars use on it. I've already spent $100+ on replacement parts on it. I can't recommend it for anyone doing Pro work, it just won't last long enough. The entire assembly for hoses, etc. are basically plastic, and the heat ruins them. Mine cracked at the main connection to the hose, and the hose connection broke ($40) too. I had to superglue the machine as it's not a replaceable part. This would be a good hobbyist item, but I'd suggest shelling out a bit more money if you're doing this for a living, get metal parts.
ProsLess expensive (still not cheap). Works well, and an invaluable tool for doing interior work. Good accessories.
ConsBuild quality is not good for lots of use, should be considered an occasional use only item. All plastic parts that wear and break quickly.

Great little machine. Sooo many uses for this in the house that I haven't even started on my truck! I have ornate furniture legs in living room and always put off cleaning them. With the steamer I can get through it easily. My blinds in kitchen and dining room are a breeze to clean. Steamer is easy to set up, takes only 10 minutes to heat up and has a nice, long cord. Cleans cabinets, bookcases, stoves, microwaves and referigerators. I do carry a bucket as I go as sometimes there is water that escapes at first. No big deal. This steamer is a jewel.

Such a great tool. As a new mobile detailer I was looking for the best bang for the buck steamer. I don't think there's another steamer out there that compares to this company's reputation, quality, or the specifications of this steamer. I am more than pleased with the performance of this product.
ProsThis bad boy blows out steam at over 300 degrees! Only takes 10 minutes or less to heat up. Good for around 50 minutes of use after that. Hose is long enough to reach more than one side of a vehicle. Super easy one button push operation.
ConsJust my lazyness I wish there was a place to put all of the extensions.

This steamer is amazing; it only takes 10 minutes to heat and provides 50 minutes of continuous steam! I was on the fence for a while about this then decided to bite the bullet and buy it, and boy am I glad I did!! It tackles the toughest jobs and is overall an incredible product for a mere $350 (compared to other steamers). All in all, BUY IT!

Best Steamer for the Value
April 16, 2013
Purchased this because many of my customers have been requesting steam as a service. Overall i'm 99% satisfied with this thing, it blasts away old muck, stains, and cleans are to reach areas with ease. This steamer is a great value vs spending another $400 for the VX5000. Only takes 10 mins to heat up and lasts through the whole car detail, and its compact so easy to move & store for the day.
