Polti Vaporetto Evolution Steam Cleaner, Green
Excellent product....after a false start!
Having always wanted a steam cleaner I was delighted that I chose the Polti Vaporetto Evolution. The first couple of times I used it it was fabulous, made everything sparkle and saved me time. I also loved the fact I no longer had to use harse cleaning products. However on the third occasion I used it, it overheated and within approx 2 minutes of use it became so hot I could no longer hold it, I called JL customer services and within a couple of days it had been collected and a new one delivered, great customer service. I have had no problems whatsoever with the second one and despite this little hitch I am more than delighted with my choice. Would definately recommend.

Only buy if you have strong hands and wrists
Fabulous piece of equipment when you can get it to work - you can whizz around the house making things cleaner than they've ever been. But the switch that releases the steam is stiff. I'm over 60 and although not decrepit or at least not all that decrepit I couldn't always get it to work. I had to return it, and now I know how good steam cleaners can be, I intend to buy one that's a different make.

have cleaned fabric blinds,stone floors, rugs, carpet stains, mattresses & windows,so far. I would recommend watching the DVD this clearly shows you what you can & how to clean & which tool to use for each job...house is sparkling clean.
Filling the reservoir is a little tricky & you have to wait for the machine to cool before you refill with water but that is to protect yourself from hot steam.
Very pleased & would recommend this product.

my little helper
I love my Polti. It has produced a sparklingly clean kitchen - tiled walls, cupboard doors, work surfaces, windows, wooden floor, all thoroughly cleaned without cleaning products and in a third of the time it would have taken me otherwise, and without having to climb on a step ladder.
One needs to have a little patience and keep on pressing the steam trigger for a while until Polti starts spouting steam, but once it starts it lasts for a suprisingly long time (on a full tank) before it needs to be refilled. Unlike the demo, mine does not buzz when empty. And once empty it needs to be allowed to cool down before the refill valve can be opened - again different from the demo, and somewhat frustrating.

Bought my polti but when I began to use it was faulty. John lewis were fantastic and arranged another to be delivered asap and collect other.Now I am well and truly hooked. This is the best piece of electrical equipment I have ever used. My house [which I thought was clean ] is now sparkling,especially the bathroom and kitchen. I agree with person from Chester that it would be useful to know water level and you have to be careful when refilling when hot as can splash up.But the overall benefits outweigh all.Would highly recommend.

great for freshening up
This is the first steam cleaner I have used. I bought it to freshen up curtains, carpets and rugs, and it has done that well and got rid of stale smells. It is great not to have to use any chemicals. I found it quite easy to use but filling it with water is a bit difficult; it spills over easily. Another minor problem is that there is no water measurement so you can't see how much water is left in the tank, but you just use it till it runs out then refill it.
