Great product Great product, floor drying really fast which is useful when you have to clean it 5 times a day. We have got small messy eater :) 18 November 2014
Avoid it - just a basic steam mop We had been considering the purchase of a steam cleaner for some time and decided on this model. When the price was suddenly halved we got one. The first thing I tried it on was the grout between the tiles in the kitchen. It did remove some stains, but only after many minutes of cleaning, after which the bristles in little brush attachment, specifically made for this task, collapsed. I phoned Vax who promptly replaced it. Dubious about the quality of quality of the attachments, I then set to work on a tiny stain on a carpet using it as a mop. This failed drastically and simply soaked the carpet, so I then tried to remove the stain using the wire brush attachment - it took ages but eventually looked better, but I could have achieved the same result using a spot cleaner in seconds. It also failed to do anything with my sofa arm caps, apart from again soaking them, even when adjusting the steam flow. I could not use it on my laminate flooring as the instructions state it's only OK for sealed floors, and laminate is not sealed unless a sealant is applied to each joint when fitted. I tried it a small lime-scale patch on a tap - this also failed. It did however make a nice job of my kitchen tiles, drying relatively quickly, but this is just a basic floor mop with attachments that are little more than gimmicks. I suggest you buy a basic floor steamer if you need to clean floor tiles, but if you want to clean anything else around the house, use a proprietary product in conjunction with some elbow grease - simples! I've returned it for a full refund - good old John Lewis - otherwise it would have been living in the cupboard forever. 11 October 2014
Excellent purchase Having reviewed these products on Which we decided to purchase this product. Very pleased we did and spent some time trying it on different areas at home. It certainly does everything it claims. The only drawback is that it produces a lot of water from the steam and so care is needed in certain areas. I used it on my electric hob with towels to stop the excess water getting into the edges. 25 September 2014
Amazing! Why oh Why have i not bought this sooner! Had the most wonderful weekend of cleaning with this amazing steam cleaner. The house glistens and the oven has never been as clean. The brush underneath is ideal for the quarry tiles where the dogs come in out of the garden. I would recommend this to anyone! 22 September 2014
Steam mad! Ordered online and picked this up yesterday from my local store. This has to be one of my most satisfying purchases ever! I have used it on my wooden floors, tiled Kitchen and Bathroom floor, steamed my rugs, wall tiles in the kitchen and refreshed my sofa! It cleans brilliantly and easily, I can see myself becoming obsessed by steaming!! I agree with a previous reviewer that the detergent holder is tricky to get off, but that's the only negative I can find. The accessory pack is good. I bought extra "mop" heads when I picked mine up and this has proved handy using different cloths for different areas. A very satisfying purchase. 14 September 2014
Brilliant product Very pleased with this cleaner. Have now used nearly all of the gadgets and the results are good. Cleaning tiled kitchen floor takes a few minutes. Light to carry around which is a bonus as I have a tiled wet room upstairs. One of my best buys ever. 28 August 2014
Ditch the mop and bucket forever! Where do I start?? Once again excellent service from JL product was delivered within 1 day. As for the cleaner it is superb a real all rounder, easy to use and light to manoeuvre and compact enough to store. It doesn't leave excess water like some other models. The cleaning power is excellent, in fact I'd almost forgotten the grout in my kitchen floor was grey! I also used is on my tired hall runner with superb results. I am actually looking forward to cleaning with this, something I never thought I'd ever say as I'm a total cleaning-phobe! My kids even joke if they hang around long enough I'll steam clean them! 27 August 2014
Fantastic - cleaning is almost a pleasure! This device actually delivers what it advertises. Cleaning is now so easy and efficient. I use it for all cleaning but especially like the attachment for cleaning glass. Even my husband uses it which can't be bad! 27 August 2014
