    Some background when choosing between steamers verses steam irons: Steamers and irons basically accomplish the same thing – removing wrinkles from clothing and fabric. However, they work very differently while both have the potential to emit steam. A steamer emits a jet of steam at the clothing with no need to touch the fabric, while an iron presses the material flat under its hot plate. A steam iron functions with both the hot plate and bursts of water or steam, which helps release wrinkles. A clothes steamer can be used on fabrics that are difficult to iron, such as a screen-printed shirt or a suit jacket. Large models feature a water reservoir attached to a hose with a steam wand at the end, while handheld versions sometimes look like an iron minus the metal plate. Steaming typically is done with the item hanging on a hanger. A steamer cannot press creases into fabric since it doesn't actually press the fabric at all. The reason I choose steamer is that I neither use irons nor steamers very often, and when I do use them, I use them on more expensive clothes, and especially I like to use them on wool sweaters. Irons won’t work on wool sweaters (to my understanding) and steamers tend to do minimal harms to sweaters. I have been using this steamer for exactly two weeks now. Most of the times, I used the steamer to steam wool sweaters I washed by hand. Here’s some Pros and Cons I found on this steamer. Pros: 1. Small size, very light and easy to handle. I got tendonitis on my wrist and I could not lift heavy stuff… 2. Easy to operate: basically, you just turn the power on, put it several inches away from your clothes, that’s it! 3. Reduce wrinkles fairly efficient. It looks like it’s got enough power to do the job. 4. It comes with a pair of gloves, which I don’t use as I like to hold the steamer with bare hands (for safety purpose, it’s recommended wearing by the manufacturer). Also there’s a fabric brush, which I do like to use. Right hand to hold the steamer, left hand to use the brush on clothes. Cons: 1. Heat up a bit slow. It took 60-90 seconds to heat up, which is somehow faster than manufacturer claims, but still just a bit slow. YES, as I am trying to be picky, I think this is the only one “Con”. They sent me this product for free in exchange for a review. I am under no obligation to provide a 1 or 5 star review, and this is purely my own honest review about this product. They had no attempt to reach out to me for a 5 star review either. [...] I receive no compensation but I just want more people to read if this is truly helpful! Thank you very much for reading my review and hope it helps!

    Wrinkles on clothing can be annoying, especially when traveling or in an important event. Luckily, this device exists. At first glance I wasn't sure how the device was going to remove any wrinkles from the clothing. Reading the instructions provided helped a lot. Make sure to read the instructions and any warnings they contain, they are definitely helpful. Now to the contents you get inside the box: The steamer- it's lightweight and heats up super fast. It's all white and on the sides it has a clear window where it shows the water level. A brush accessory - this brush is specifically designed for furniture. In my case I used it with my curtains which can't be ironed because of some details they have. Using the brush accessory I got rid of the wrinkles and my curtains look stunning. Heat resistant glove- it has the shape of a kitchen /oven mitt and does an excellent job at protecting my hand from the heat. This is really helpful when I have to stretch the fabric and get rid of some nasty wrinkle. I love that they include this handy mitt. I really love this steamer especially for traveling And/or when I need a last minute fixer for my clothes. Notes: The only downside is that the water evaporates really fast, so keep a liter of water nearby just in case. Please let the device cool off before removing the nozzle. I didn't and when I removed the nozzle for storage some drops of water landed on my leg and burned me. Nothing serious, just be careful. I was provided a sample of the product for the purpose of providing an honest review.
  • A Quality Portable Fabric Steamer With All The Right Features

    The TaoTronics TT-PI001 Portable Fabric Steamer is a product where almost all of the design features hit the mark. As an engineer, I always look at products to see where design improvements might have made a good product even better. The engineers were right on with this portable fabric steamer. I honestly cannot think of one thing that I would have changed. At first, I thought that a larger water tank would have been better, for a longer time between water refills when steaming clothes. However, after thinking about it, 120 ml of water is just about right. This allows the unit to begin producing steam in just under 90 seconds. A larger water tank would take longer to begin producing steam. This would also make the steamer larger and heavier to hold (after all, this is a portable steamer). This amount of water (a little over 4 ounces) lasts for almost 6 minutes. This is enough time to steam a shirt and a pair of pants (depending upon how wrinkled they are). I found that It will easily do one piece of clothing, no matter how wrinkled it is, as well as part of another item. I appreciate that steaming clothes is easier on the fabric than ironing. Ironing can fade fabric, or even damage the fibers. Even if a burn mark is not observed, the fabric can still be easily overheated with an iron, reducing clothing life. Iron temperature has to be matched to the type of fabric, and errors can be made. This steamer will never heat the fabric over 212 degrees F (boiling point of water), and I do not have to worry about possibly damaging clothing. Nearly any fabric can be steamed. I would probably not use it on wool, or fabrics that specifically state not to wash in hot water, or at least go easy at first. However, my wife has used steamers on almost all fabric types, and has never had a problem. In fact, clothing stores use portable steamers on almost all fabric types. Operation of the TaoTronics Portable Fabric Steamer couldn't be easier. Simply twist the nozzle and lift it off of the steamer. This exposes the water tank in the steamer. Fill the steamer to the MAX mark on the glass window on either side of the steamer. Replace the nozzle, and twist it in the opposite direction to lock it. Plug it in, and with your thumb, push the red switch to the ON position. Within 90 seconds, steam is flowing from the nozzle. Run the nozzle across the fabric, while on a clothes hanger, and watch wrinkles disappear almost instantly. A brush is included, which attaches to the nozzle, and can be used to whisk the fabric also. This might be useful for certain fabric types. A nice heat resistant glove is also included, to prevent burns from steam. The steamer also has a MIN mark on the glass window on either side of the steamer (as well as the MAX fill mark). This MIN mark means the steamer is nearly out of water, and should be refilled. The unit shuts off automatically if it completely runs out of water, as a safety feature to keep it from overheating. However, running the water down to the level where it automatically shuts off, will reduce the life of the heating element somewhat. I would run the water to the MIN mark and then refill to the MAX mark for maximum steamer lifetime. If your water is hard, you also might want to use distilled water to minimize scale buildup on the heating element inside the water tank. Otherwise, I would just use tap water, and clean with vinegar occasionally, when scale is observed. This TaoTronics Steamer appears to be well made, and quality materials seem to be used throughout. My wife and I both appreciate the long power cord, which is over 8 feet long (too many appliances seem to come with short cords these days). A nice carry bag is also included with the steamer, allowing the unit to be conveniently packed in a suitcase or travel bag. This steamer should last for a long time. Although I received this TaoTronics Portable Fabric Steamer in exchange for a fair and honest evaluation, I feel that I have done an honest evaluation of the product. I did not receive any money or anything else for this evaluation.

    When I opened this I was thrilled. It came with a heat mitt, brush attachment, and carry bag. Unfortunately the plastic on the main body of the steamer had a hairline crack in it. I returned it and have not reordered it. I have decided to do some more research before trying my luck on this one again. Besides the crack it looked to be a nice steamer, but I was worried that the plastic was cheap or brittle and that I would have the same issue on a different one. I gave it three stars because I really did like the looks of it other than the cracked body and in fairness I didn't get to use it so I have no idea if it worked. **ABOVE was my original 3 star review** After I returned the steamer TaoTronics customer service contacted me to apologize that I received a damaged product. They quickly issued me a refund and offered to send me a new steamer free of charge. I have to say this is a first for me. Talk about superior customer service. I got my new steamer and it arrived in perfect condition this time. Yay! I love this steamer. It is exactly what I was looking for. It is very compact, came with a travel case, heat mitt, and brush and it heats up super quick. I put distilled water in it and in about 1 minute in was just shooting out the steam. This thing was so efficient that when I had my shirt hung the steam was making the fabric move away. I am so impressed. I have a gigantic upright steamer and it doesn't have this kind of power. I highly recommend giving this steamer a try. This company really stands by its products and that is refreshing.

    I had a travel clothes/fabric steamer once a long time ago and, frankly, hated it. But time marches on, products improve, and it was time to either purchase a new steam iron or revisit the idea of a clothes steamer. I decided to try the steamer since it struck me as being more convenient - if it got the wrinkles out, that is. And it did. I tested it using a corduroy shirt and then a polyester blend casual top. It was easy to use. The wrinkles were gone. I didn't have to worry about changing the heat setting. I still had water/steam left over. And the heat resistant mitt included just seemed to be the proverbial icing on the cake.

1.Anyone recommend this steamer who wasn't given a freebie in exchange for an "unbiased" review? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: No freebies received here. My son bought it to steam the backdrop cloth for photography/video projects. He said and I saw that it works pretty good. Takes a bit of time on that huge backdrop cloth as it is not a large steamer.
2.Would this steamer work well on curtains? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: Yes
3.How long is the cord? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: ~8 ft long
4.What is the warranty on this? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: The enclosed booklet says, "This product is covered with TaoTronics product and labor warranty for 12 months from the date of its original purchase."
5.Does this steamer spit water? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: Yes! But it does work well.
6.How long does the steamer stay on? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: This is a handy little portable steamer that stays on as long as it is plugged in & the switch is on- and that is one of its flaws. It should have an auto shut off in the absence of water. If you don't shut it off or unplug it when the water is gone, it will burn out. It doesn't hold much water, so you have to be alert-can't get carried away chasing those wrinkles! I wish it held more water so I didn't have to stop, turn it off, add more water, turn it on, wait 90 seconds, steam for a few minutes, stop, repeat above...other than those two issues, it's worthy of 4.5 stars!
7.how many ounces of water does it hold? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: I believe it holds 4-6 oz. If you are doing several items, you will need to refill and continue.
8.what is the voltage it operates on? 110V/ 220V? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: 110v
9.How many ounces of water does it hold? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: Not enough. It goes through it quickly
10.Do you have to use distilled water? Is tap water ok. Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: Distilled water is better but tap water will work
