Polti Vaporetto Evolution Steam Cleaner Kit with Iron

Product information

Not only can you banish grease, dust and dirt, you can wipe out creases in your laundry too with this revolutionary steam cleaning kit!

Using the force of steam alone, the Polti PTGB0048 ecologically removes grease, cleans, sanitises and gets rid of dust mites and allergens - providing health benefits for asthma and allergy sufferers.

Meanwhile the iron accessory transforms the Vaporetto into a highly effective ironing system. Thanks to the power of steam, you can smooth fibres and the toughest wrinkles in no time - and it is ideal for the most delicate fabrics, too. It can also be used upright to refresh and iron curtains, coats and jackets.

The steam is generated inside a special high-pressure 1500W boiler and steam is emitted via a powerful 4 bar pressure, leaving your house perfectly clean. Four smooth castor wheels make transport easy.

Q & As

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by new Polti version I bought a Polti in 1990 and it is still working although it leaks. (Metal casing. I did use de-ionised water but all good things....). I have been babysitting the new Green Polti steam machine for my friend whist she moves house. It is brilliant and she received a free iron which is as good as my specialist steam iron with its litre reservoir. I am just waiting to buy my new one for the same price my friend paid on 20th August 2014! I love it! 12 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Experienced Polti user I bought this product to replace the Polti I have had for over 12 years, it had met all my expectations during that time without any problems. When it started to leak I immediately purchased this replacement' regretfully this had a faulty trigger and had to be returned. I am still a Polti fan and will be buying another. 20 January 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not powerful enough for ironing I've been using steam generators to iron for years now and wouldn't go back. My previous machine was a Polti, similar to the 3000, but when, after several years, the plastic housing started to come apart, I thought a more compact model would be easier to store so bought this one. Well, this is more compact, but it just isn't powerful enough. Most of my ironing time I'm getting big wet spots of water out of the iron. On full pressure it's a little better, but that's just way too much steam (and causes condensation in the room where I iron). First I thought it was just me, so experimented with different settings etc., and now I've had it a few months it's too late to send it back. I'm pretty fed up about it tbh. Haven't used it much as a steam cleaner, but the same seems to apply - anything less than maximum pressure and you get more water than steam. 07 September 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great when it works We're on our 3rd one of these now (in less than a year) and when they work, the product is great. The professional iron attachment in particular makes ironing a much less painful experience than with a regular iron. Our main gripe however, and it's a pretty serious one, is that the boiler seems to keep breaking down! Our first support enquiry was with Polti UK after the boiler exploded in the living room in a shower of steam and boiling water. Polti promised to repair and return the boiler but after taking 8 weeks (not the promised 2-3) they sent back a unit which leaked steam once switched on and had obviously been crowbarred and hammered open on a workbench to get at the innards. We took the unit back to John Lewis who were brilliant, replaced the unit immediately and said they would deal directly with Polti about the issues with the first unit. Unfortunately, our replacement unit also stopped working only 2 months after getting it. On this occasion the thermostat seemed to have broken because whilst the boiler would switch on and heat up it wouldn't dispense steam. Again, John Lewis customer service were brilliant and our current unit is still working one month on. Our only concern is how long this will last but we're enjoying the product whilst it does. 09 December 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Polti Vaporretto Steam cleaner Just returned this product to JL. Flimsy construction and poor performance .A Which Magazine Don't Buy. I totally agrea. 23 July 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by useful ,easy to use Just bought steamer 1 month ago and so far have found it very efficient.`My windows sparkle without too much elbow grease and all other jobs have been easier to negotiate.I did have a problem with the lack lustre manual "problem finding" Thanks to one of your customer reviews I was soon back and running smoothly. I Have not used iron attachment yet as i do have a separate iron generator (`i do plan to use soon). 24 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Addictive Local store didn't have any in stock but on-line delivery was very quick. Build quality is a bit plasticky, especially the body but nothings broken yet. As per other reviews, finding things to steam blitz can be rather addictive. A good portion of New Years Eve was spent attacking floor and wall tiles, windows, the kitchen bin, rugs and the fridge. It's also been used to defrost a seriously frozen up fridge freezer though that took quite a while. Run time with a full 1.3L tank has been good and it's worth mentioning the importance of being careful when refilling as it does spit. A large funnel helps when refilling. Oh and plenty of rags and cloths are also required to mop and dry up as you go. 02 February 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very useful and versatile I bought the steam cleaner for my daughter for Christmas. She found it easy to assemble and use and would certainly recommend it. She and her partner have five dogs so that's quite a recommendation. I'm waiting to borrow it ! 15 January 2013
