I bought the one that Woot was selling last year. I love it, though I wish it had the clothes rack and bar attached as this one does.

Also thought I would share a secret: Downy makes a product called, Downy Wrinkle Releaser, it is a miracle product. Bought mine from Walmart for around $10 for a big bottle. I had my doubts but this stuff is the bomb. I now only steam the important clothes. The rest get the Downy treatment. I can leave clothes in the dryer for days and withing 3 minutes of the Downy being sprayed on it, on a hanger of course, all the wrinkles are gone. Simply sharing my bachelor tips!

Great for touching up dress shirts and pants if you want to get a little more use between washes. Little tip, go from the bottom up because steam rises.

Not a fan,used to take my shirts to dry cleaner then I thought I should try the garment steamer to save some cash. After washing my dress shirts it gets the worst wrinkles out but there are still lumps and bumps on the shirt. Now I'm ironing again!

yeah, it's tempting...i know. "you'll never use your iron again", they say. "it will take the wrinkles out in less than 10 seconds", you convince yourself.

in reality, this thing will sit and collect dust in the corner of the room next to the iron that gets used everyday. just like mine. don't make the same mistake i did.



Same here. I thought it would save a lot of time and money from not having to dry clean but it is a pain to use and does not do nearly as good of a job as an iron.

There are 1500 Watts. There are 12 Watts in each line, so you would have to have 125 lines. There is a pattern - a slightly narrower line each 25 lines which makes it easy to count in blocks of 25, and there are in fact 125 lines. Took me about a minute.

Woot, can you at least give me free shipping for that?

I was waiting for the dryer to end so I could hang up all my skirts while warm to avoid wrinkles. Needless to say the sunbeam offered a chance at extra moonbeams, as I could rectify wrinkles with one of these. So I purchased it.

Maybe I am doing it wrong but I can't get that crisp looking seam the way you do with an iron, but it does take out wrinkles no problem.



I get pretty good crisp creases in pant legs by lining up the crease the way I want it against a closet door (or wall, whatever), and pressing the steamer against the crease. Probably doesn't work as well as an iron but then I haven't used an iron in years and can't stand them

I bought this the last time it was on woot and have used it a few times. It works well.

I am a photographer and it works well on my fabric backdrops as well as my clothes.

The only real criticisms I have are you have to go over an area a few times to really get deep wrinkles out and the clothing clips to not hold pants very well.

Just ordered one! My wife's been wanting a good steamer because ironing dresses, especially those made of lighter materials, doesn't work well. I hope I don't have to iron anymore with this; the amazon reviews give some good tips on how to do creases for men's clothes (hold a cutting board behind, hang on a closet door).

Wooted the one last year. LOVE IT. Use it for my work suits, blouses, and was shocked at how beautifully it does cottons and cotton blends. No sharp creases of course, but does a bang up job on nearly everything I've used it on! Only thing that it didn't do was some 100% poly curtains that had major manufacture creases in them.

...and not so much a video as a slide show. I'd like to see it actually remove wrinkles in a pair of trousers and a sports coat or a suit. I hate having to take something to the dry cleaners merely because it's been crushed in my rediculously small closet. Anyone used something like this on a sports coat? (Just bought off the rack at Boscovs - came pre-crushed.)

I can't attest to this model specifically, but I got one last year and wasn't too impressed with it. The steam takes a while to build up and only last a very short amount of time unless you hold the hose a very certain way. If this one is an improvement from that, I would buy it for sure.

We have a wedding to attend in May. This might just be a nice item to give as a gift for such an occasion.

I wonder if this gives off enough steam power to clean the grout on my kitchen floor tiles.

I got one of these from Woot not too long ago. Here's the thing: it isn't an iron replacement. It's an iron supplement (and not the kind you swallow).

I ironed ALL my dress shirts once. Good. Nice and creased. Now when I get home from work, I hang them up immediately. None of that balled-up-on-the-bed crap.

Then, when I want to wear a shirt again, I use the steamer to get the little day-to-day wrinkles out. Much faster and easier than dealing with an iron. The iron is for big jobs. This thing is for little jobs or shirts that you'd NEVER think of ironing, like t-shirts or polos or a tie (if you're careful) or my wife's blouses.

What if I like my clothing wrinkled? I mean, it's got a ton of cat hair on it anyway, why bother ironing or steaming out the wrinkles?

I haven't used it yet but this one comes with a creased attachment. It's that hoop thing in the photo to the right of the base.

That's new to me.

My older steamer doesn't come with attachments.

I guess it could do creases, but I doubt they would be near as sharp as one from an iron.

No, these are not good for cleaning.

Steamers that are used for cleaning spray out the steam with a lot more force.
If you want a steamer for cleaning, you can find them for around $15-$20.
I got one for $15 at Big Lots.
This one is very similar to the one that I got from Big Lots:

I absolutely love this steamer. It is perfect for jeans and a shirt / sweater, etc., although I haven't had to do the crease thing. I use it almost every day and I really have not used my iron since I got it months ago.

I don't use the pants clips but rather drape pants on the end of my bed and it does a quick, bang up job on those wrinkles. This is not a dust collector in my house!

As a bonus, it works as a room humidifier.

Don't recommend unless you have no-iron clothes. The pole is flimsy and the clips are cheap. I ended up rigging my own contraption to hold the clothes in a proper manner. It saves me time/money on my no-iron clothes but for everything else it's faster/easier to just use an iron and/or dryer.

Pretty much the same here... It does do a good job with my shirts and pants out of the dryer, but I have to put one of my own pants hangers on the rack because the one on the unit sucks, and the steam comes out very strong for a while, then it just stops and you have to wait a minute or more for it to start again. The cycle keeps repeating, steam-stop-wait-steam again. I don't know if this model will be different, but this little glitch extends the time it takes to steam and can get frustrating.
