A unit that utilizes 1550 watts of power, it’s able to produce a large powerful jet of steam.
The foot operated power switch provides increased convenience and accessibility. The auto off safety feature shuts the machine off should the tank run dry. For more convenient steaming, the included garment clips hold clothing in place for a faster, easier process.
The large water tank is also transparent, giving the user a clear view of the water level, which will make it easy for you to notice when the tank is running low. The average sized water tank is around sixty ounces, so this impressive capacity is very appealing for individuals who enjoy using their steamer for bigger jobs around their home or in a professional capacity.
As with most models of steamers, the manufacturer recommends using distilled water only. This will help to reduce calcium build-up, which can negatively affect the steamer’s performance and cause clogs in the hose. That being said, many consumers still use hard water or even regular tap water and clean their steamer out using two tablespoons of baking soda and four cups of warm water after every two to three uses.

This machine is designed to remove deep creases from all types of materials, with the exception of dry clean only clothing. It can also handle lint, debris and pet hair like a pro.
To use, fill the tank to the recommended level, use the foot power switch to turn the machine on and wait for the power indicator light to turn on, which it tends to do in less than a minute.

It also eliminates the need to drag out a cumbersome ironing board.
If you have ever owned an upright steamer, then you know it can be difficult to steam clothes as they swing back and forth. But the unique roll and press feature makes it easier to quickly steam all your garments in just half the time. On top of that, it also frees up one of your hands and makes the overall process more efficient.
While this new feature can work to eliminate the need to use both of your hands while you’re steaming, in some cases where the wrinkles are extremely stubborn, you may still need to use both hands to pull the fabric out in order to get rid of the wrinkles completely.
The braided power cord measures in at nine feet, which is about the same as other steamers of this size. Unfortunately, the cord is not retractable, however, you can wrap it around one side of the steamer’s base for easier storage.
This steamer comes with three accessories: the fabric brush, delicate steam cap and lint pad. The fabric brush can be used to open the weaves of fabric, which in turn promotes better steam penetration. The steam cap is designed to provide even distribution of steam and helps to filter out impurities. The lint pad is very effective in removing lint, debris and pet hair from clothing.
