Q & As

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Polti products are made for the job! Does what it is supposed to do - steam cleans perfectly! 14 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased so far! Bought 2 weeks ago and aware of the negative comments but think some may be down to Polti's instructions not being clear, or maybe not read properly perhaps. This is a light and well designed model (cable tidy, cut off switch) though I have not had an aluminium one before, so time will tell. The castors do need pushing on until an audible click is heard, but the book does not say so, and strong hands are required! A switch underneath the 'gun' handle that stops accidental steam discharge could possibly be overlooked by a new user, and there is a clicking on and off, but this is quite normal and all steam cleaners do it. They need practice to get the best use of them - but I wouldn't want to be without one now. 06 December 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed I spent a lot of time reviewing different models and I was really excited to try this. Unfortunately it kept overheating and was constantly cutting out on me. John Lewis replaced this but unfortunately the second machine had the same problem. Thankfully John Lewis are arranging a collection and refunding me. 15 May 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not very happy! Overall I like the idea of using a steam cleaner. I can see that it cleans very well with no chemicals at all. The areas I have cleaned with this machine look much cleaner than before with much less effort. And they are sanitised too, which is great. However, my cleaner makes the surfaces wet and spits a lot of water. I will have to wipe them dry after cleaning them with the machine. Otherwise i will see water marks everywhere. It's not like what you see in the adverts that they clean the surfaces and achieve shiny streak free results. For this reason I'm not completely happy with my steamer. I recommend that you buy a steamer that doesn't spit water. 16 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life changing I bought this on Monday as part of my moth-purging campaign. Then went on to clean radiators, grouting, bathroom, hall curtains. I am very, very happy with my first ever steam cleaner. My house is going to be SO clean. Takes 10 minutes to heat up but lasts for so long and so far found all the attachments appropriate. Having researched steam cleaners on "Which?" where Polti did not rate highly, I have to put the record straight. This - so far - is a great product. 26 March 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed twice I tried two of these - John Lewis was most helpful. On each machine the wheels fell off constantly and the connection of the hose to the machine caused faulty operating. When it did work it was brilliant. Was I just unlucky?! 27 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased This is an excellent product and exceeded my expectations. Makes light work of cleaning which is what i wanted and is very versatile. Cleaning bathroom tiles is no longer a labour intensive chore. Moreover, all you need is a bit of water and no cleaning products. I was unsure if 3.5 bar of pressure would be powerful enough but its actually more that enough. Its also light and easy to carry if necessary. Even though I had to get a replacement as the castors kept falling off, I highly recommend this product. My only criticism is that its a shame that it does not have an attachment for steaming the creases out of clothes. 04 December 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Polti Vaporetto edition Steam Cleaner What a big disappointment. I read all the reviews and was delighted when it arrived. No, it did not clean the inside rim of the toilet bowl, but it did fill it with steam, so you couldn't see a thing. It did Not touch the grease on my cooker hood, or remove some black on my bathroom grouting, and the bathroom is regularly cleaned. Sorry but it will be going back.... 01 November 2013
