Rated 5 out of 5Â by MomtoAlex So far so good
I purchased this in the hopes of getting some dirt out if the grout in our bathroom tile. We purchased our home a year ago and the bathroom leaves much to be desired. I considered having a professional steamer come out but thought I would give this a try first. I used two of the cups full of water and got enough steam to clean our bathroom. It heated quickly, was really easy to use (and assemble), it got a lot of the dirt out to the point our tiles and grout look much better and best of all no chemicals. I used it to clean the toilet and the sink as well. I never leave reviews but this was worth my time to write.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Kimibean Disappointed
When I received this steam cleaner, I was thrilled. My floors are 90% tile and I find that steam is the best way to clean. I used it according to directions, ie using distilled water, etc. The first thing that occurred is the protective hose detached from the handle. Now, my unit has completely stopped working. Tried cleaning it with vinegar and water according to manufacturer's instructions, nothing. I am so disappointed, I loved this machine. It seems that this is a common problem with steam cleaners, that they just quit working after a short period of time. Nothing is made to last anymore. And KOHL"S, why do you request my body time, height and weight when publishing a review??? Totally irrelevant.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by JaneThePain Does the good, but
It works well enough, but not quite as powerful as I would like. Feels very "plasticy". No way to wrap the cord. But it does hold a lot of steam, best to use it in short bursts. Use distilled water, because like a coffee maker and iron it will build up hard water deposits and stop working. Best for occasional light to medium use. Don't expect magic using steam only, to get tough grease, mold, and dirt build up the steam is good at loosening up the dirt, but won't blast it away. For that you need a much more powerful steamer.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by knucktat Great for steaming tile flores
I was very impressed how well it steamed my kitchen floors. I own a bissell steam mop which I thought did a great job until I steam mopped my floors with the Mcculloch. They look fantastic.
I attempted to steam my shower walls but it is had to tell how good it worked. i have subway tiles so I couldn't pull the squeegee in one solid motion down the wall. Plus I didn't have any kind of soap build up to notice how well it would clean.
I haven't tried to clean anything else yet but will attempt my outdoor grill. If it can clean that, I will come back and change my rating to 5 stars.
The one con I will give it is after use, you can wait 2 hours and the water cap is still very hot. Be careful removing it. And it is a bit awkward to drain the left over water. Would be great if they had thought of putting a drain cap lower on the unit with a small hose so you could tilt it and drain it back into the cup provided.
