H2O Steam FX Handheld Steamer with Accessories - 802007
Like everyone else I wish I'd read the reviews first. On TV this is advertised as the PERFECT steam cleaner, easy to use and can handle tough jobs. Will give 20 minutes of steam. REALLY??
I have good manual dexterity and even I found holding the button in for steam difficult. My hand ached.
I didn't get 20 minutes of steam. I thought I'd clean my Windows and my glass panel in my oven door. Either I have a different type of cooked on food/grease that this steamer cannot handle or I'm using this steamer wrong. In 20 minutes I'd filled it twice.
Not only that but I near broke my sink as the nozzle flew off under the pressure as mine has the unlock and lock guides the wrong way round. So lock is unlock and unlock is lock. That'll also explain why it took so long to try and get the cap off to fill the tank.
I think that this is advertised incorrectly. It doesn't handle baked on grease/food/dirt anywhere near as efficiently as advertised
I am so disappointed. I have been looking at these in retail stores by different manufacturers but saw this on QVC and was taken in by the advertising spiel.
This is the first time I have ever returned anything as dissatisfied

I really should have read the reviews before ordering this machine. I found the steam jet fairly adequate for those jobs that weren't too " dirty" but not effective on more tricky cleaning.
The cap to the water chamber was fiddly and difficult to use, and actually came apart so I was unable to use it at all.
I will be returning this item.

Not even worth 1 star
I saw this item shown on tv and thought it would be a great hand held steamer. I was so disappointed and wished I had read the reviews first as I certainly wouldn't have been sending it back because I wouldn't have bought it. The on button is very difficult to use even for a person with good dexterity, the water chamber is fiddly and the steamer has to be totally upright to work! Sorry QVC this item is being returned.

I've been looking for ages for a hand-held steamer and this looked like just the job. It does have some good points: it's lightweight, the attachments and extension hose are useful and the steam flow was fairly steady. However, it was badly let down by a couple of basic flaws: the coral pads for the paddle attachment are a nightmare to put on (too small) and kept coming off during cleaning and the need to keep the button pressed continually during use is very hard on the fingers. For these reasons, it's of little use to anyone with dexterity problems or stiff/painful fingers and I'm reluctantly returning it. If these basic flaws were sorted out, it would be a good buy.
