4 Stars By EeZeEpEe on 2016-02-10 Pretty Good As Long As You Don't Fill To The Max Line Initial Review: Very, very weak! Practically useless! Yes it's labeled as a portable steamer but it is so weak it takes forever to even do one shirt. Not only that but there's a built-in shut off timer so it's constantly losing steam while your working. I don't understand how this product can have 1000+ 5-star reviews.
UPDATE 3/3/2016: Pretty Good As Long As You Don't Fill To The Max Line I was contacted by Pure Enrichment support to give a replacement unit a try. No harm in giving it a second chance so I accepted the offer.
At first I was very disappointed with replacement unit. It seemed to have the same problem as my first one.
Here's what I did step by step: Filled the reservoir to max. Turned it on and it heated it up 1:15-1:30 which was faster than the 2 minutes advertised. I would then hear a "click" and the steam would start for about 20 seconds. Then there would be another "click" followed by a slightly stronger steam for 15-20 seconds. However, it would die down to nearly no steam and no bubbles for about 10 seconds until a "click" was heard again and would repeat the cycle.
This cycling on/off continued for nearly 9 minutes! Just as I was about to give up and turn it off, I noticed that it had a continuous steam going and kept going until the water ran out. It did a pretty good job on a pair of pants but it only lasted for about 4:30.
So after several tests I realized what the issue is. This steamer does not like it if you fill the reservoir right at the max line. Doing so gets the on/off cycle. Instead, it's best to fill it about 4/5 the way. Doing so gets a steady, continuous, decent strength steam that was able to last for 7:00 strong and eventually completely ran out of water at 7:30.
Pros: Compact and portable Quick and easy locking top Large opening for the reservoir to pour water into and clean when done Heats up quicker than advertised at around 1:15-1:30 and this is with cold Brita filtered water
Cons: Filling to the max line gets an on/off cycling Short of the advertised 10 minutes continuous steam. Getting 7 minutes but likely due to filling only 4/5 the way. Plastic has a light purple color to it. Easily noticeable compared to something actually white like the cord.
Conclusion: DON'T FILL WATER TO THE MAX LINE! It's a better steamer than I initially thought once I figured that out.
5 Stars By Amanda D. on 2015-02-06 First steamer defective, second steamer a winner! I'm past my return window or this would be going back. I liked it at first but now whenever I use it, the water gets so hot it boils out of the steam vents all over the clothes I'm steaming or onto the floor or wherever the nozzle is pointing. It was not over filled! In fact, I tried pouring most of the water out and it still happens. What a mess to clean up when I'm only steaming as a time saver over ironing anyway - and then I couldn't even wear the item I was steaming because it was soaked in the areas where the scalding water had shot onto it. I'm truly disappointed. Wish I could even exchange it - bummer.
2/12/15 - update: After leaving the review above, I was immediately contacted by the seller and offered a replacement unit. I accepted, received it within a week, used it this morning and am happy. It is first-rate customer service in this day and age to have any seller give a hoot about a bad review not to mention have their policy reflect courtesy and promptness. Most importantly, the replacement product works just fine. All things considered the best way to go is to not have defective products at all, but nothing is perfect, and the way they handled the situation was quite satisfactory. So I'm leaving my one-star rating, hoping any consumer in a similar situation will read and know they'll be taken care of. Also in hopes that a consumer even considering purchasing this product will see that even if the unit they order is a defective one, they'll be treated respectfully and fairly in the returns process. For the record, this steamer (the replacement unit that works properly) gets 5 stars. ;)
4 Stars By Alis N. on 2015-04-09 Does a good job but does not replace iron I like this steamer a lot. It's compact and it's easy to travel with. The problem with travel size stuff is that it is usually small. Specifically with this item, the water container is small. So do not expect hours of use out of it. I attached some pictures of a cotton t shirt that I threw into the wash and came out super wrinkly. The steamer did a good job taking out most of the wrinkles, but it does not replace an iron. The reason for that is because it's hard for the steamer to get the wrinkles out by the horizontal lines on the shirt. My guess is bc it is painted over or whatever material they use is hard to get wrinkles out (as you can see by the pics). It still did a really good job, but for items like these, you would likely need to run an iron over to make sure you get the wrinkles out of the horizontal lines.
I suspect that it will do a great day to day job of just getting out wrinkles from dress shirts and work attire. I filled the steamer to the "max" line and the steam was only sufficient for this one shirt (front and back). I had to refill after steaming this shirt. I see some other reviews where it states that you can use it on two to three things. I think it just depends on how much wrinkles you have on the shirt. If you have heavy wrinkles like this cotton tee, then it will likely only have enough steam for one shirt. either way, it's still more convenient for travel and using an iron!
Worth a try if you are looking into one! It took less than a minute to boil up. The price is also relatively cheap compare to other steamers. I would check this out if you are in the market for one.
5 Stars By pullthetab on 2016-06-03 Very Good the 2nd Time Around If you are looking for a small steamer to throw into your travel suitcase and use on the go, it's OK. It does get out most of the larger wrinkles, but still leaves smaller wrinkles. It does not well nearly as well as the full size steamers, which work GREAT for getting out all wrinkles. The other problem with this small guy, as well as several other smaller models I have used, is that it only steams about 50% of the time it is on. It will sit for 15 seconds building up the steam, then release it for about 15 seconds, then you have to wait again for 15 seconds for the next burst. Tends to be quite frustrating. For most people, I would definitely advise going for the full size items - if you have the space.
Update: I guess the company must watch their ratings. They contacted me after my 2* review (actually called me back 3 times because I was too busy to return their call - kudos!). They offered to refund or replace the product. Up to 3* already. In order to better evaluate it, I asked for a replacement. Arrived quickly and what do you know - it works perfectly. A steady blast of steam from the nozzle, no delays, minimal spitting (still some - nature of the beast). Small footprint, but that's the ideas for a small portable steamer. Definitely turned around my rating to 5*. So the lesson is, if you get one that hiccups while on, get a replacement. It should work quite well.
3 Stars By Everett V. Goings III on 2015-10-04 This is a travel/emergency steamer. Nothing more. When looking at the reviews I jumped the gun and bought it (with 2 & 3 star reviews far and between).
I opened the package and was immediately reluctant. This would be a perfect travel steamer.
The description says 10 minutes of non stop steam. Up to the marked fill line: I got about 2 minutes before having to refill. I did this for about 30 minutes trying to steam a tie! CAUTION: IF YOU REFILL IT TOO HIGH, IT WILL SHOOT HOT WATER OUT. It will take a extremely long time to get wrinkles of a shirt. But if you have an emergency and the time, I guess this will work.
There is NO OFF BUTTON. Once you turn it on, you better start steaming or else you will have to reheat it once you turn it off.
This steamer will get mild to light creases. But will absolutely not get out any hard crease. I went over a single crease 20 times, each at different passes. Frustrated, I got an old t-shirt and held it in one place on a wrinkle, until the tank was empty. Crease was still there.
If you need a steamer on the go, then this will work. Other than that, you probably should invest in a larger unit (like I am about to do).
1 Stars By Mike W on 2017-12-17 Dangerous! Iâ€™m not sure how this steamer hasnâ€™t generated multiple lawsuits for water or steam burns. Iâ€™ve included a video showing how it operates. If you donâ€™t want to watch the entire video, Iâ€™ll summarize. I do fill it to the â€œMAXâ€ line and plug it in and turn it on. 45 seconds into the video, its up to temperature and begins to boil emitting steam... and boiling hot water. This continues until around the 3:10 point of the video where it does emit only steam. Although I do cut the video shortly after this point, it does emit steam for about one more minute, basically until the last of the water has boiled off. The concerning parts of this is the fact that this unit was not even moving during the video. Imagine if a person were actually using this and it wasnâ€™t stationary. Take this video for what itâ€™s worth but Iâ€™d look elsewhere
1 Stars By Kori on 2016-12-14 This is terrible. Don't buy. This is the worst steamer I have ever used. First of all, after I turned it on for the first time to use, the steamer started spitting out hot water on my garment. I thought "Okay, maybe this just happens when you first turn it on but it'll stop after a couple of seconds.." NO. IT DIDN'T STOP. So, on top of this, I know this is a "travel sized" steamer, but it runs through water FAST. Also, it didn't even get the wrinkles out. I don't feel comfortable leaving the steamer faced towards just one spot at a time on my clothes because I'm paranoid and I think it'll ruin my shirt, but do it at your own risk. Overall, I would NOT recommend this product.
4 Stars By TravellingManNJ on 2016-05-14 If you travel a lot - this is an indispensable tool! This is my second steamer - not because I had a problem with the first, but because I left it on one of my weekly travels. The first one I bought was black - if you stay in overly lit/bright hotel rooms, then you're probably ok with black, if you don't stay in hospital grade accommodations get something brighter like white!
Now on to the review - I travel very regularly (usually weekly) and after ironing one time that resulted in the proverbial "iron mark", I realized that running the risk of using a iron whose previous life was to grill cheese, was just too much risk to run! I went back to ironing after having left the first steamer at some point. Boy, did I miss that steamer even more!
One fill usually covers a dress shirt,pair of pants, and a suit jacket. If you're unlucky and packed poorly and are trying to deal with overly wrinkled clothes your mileage on the "fill" may vary. Also, if you take your dandy 'ole time, you may not get through three items, but then you're going real slow! The reality though is that if you do run out of water, you're probably a few steps away from the sink to refill - it's not really a big deal.
My wife and I have a full size steamer at home that would not fit in a suit case - does it steam better than this? Yes. Should it work better? Yes. Do I have to be careful with the type of water I use? Yes (as we have very hard water and I have to use spring water). Could I steam a whole closet of clothes on one one gallon fill? Yes.
As I only have so much space in a carry-on to drag three "work" days of clothes, plus after work clothes, plus some gym clothes, this steamer is the best thing I have ever bought to make traveling a million times easier. I don't have to deal with dirty irons anymore (unless a pair of pants are really wrinkled and I have to end up ironing), the steamer heats up pretty quick (as in you can't get an in room coffee machine going without it already steaming away), doing a shirt and pair of pants takes only a little effort, and you get to the office looking like you do NOT live out of a suitcase!
My only "complaint" about the unit I received is that I ordered white... seems like someone in China mixing the color that day may have spilled a little red in there... how can I tell? Well, the cord is stark white and the steamer is an off white/pale pink. The upside, is it is easier to spot on cleanup day, it doesn't effect how it works and no one other than me really ever sees it. Maybe when I forget this one along the way, the next one will be "white". So, would I buy another one? Absolutely!
1 Stars By 2DayDeliver Customer on 2016-05-09 Disappointed over This Hazardous Product This is my first 2DayDeliver review and it is because I want people to beware of this product. I understand that products can have defects but when they are as dangerous as this one, there should be much greater measures in their Quality Control department to ensure less hazardous products wind up in the hands of consumers.
Let me start by saying I was SO excited to get this steamer. I had been suffering from a disheveled look for months after a roommate had moved out that owned an iron. As such, I was in the market for something that would get my wrinkles out fast and without any extra equipment (i.e. a bulky ironing board). After browsing 2DayDeliver for a while, and reading countless customer reviews, I picked the Pure Enrichment Fabric Steamer.
Just a couple of days later, my much-needed steamer arrived in the mail. Right when I saw it, I opened it up and used it on some of my unkempt clothes. I read the directions, filled up the reservoir, and plugged it in. Briefly, I left the room to put the clothes on hangers. When I came back, my floor was soaked with scalding hot water. Curious as to what was happening, I picked up the steamer from the handle. It was searing hot and water was dripping everywhere! Thinking I must have screwed something on wrong, I turned the appliance off, let it cool down, reread the directions, and tried again. This time I noticed before even plugging it in that water was dripping everywhere. Ugh! I was so disappointed. In a desperate attempt to make the product usable, I wrapped duct tape around the bottom, but that failed to leave the product with any marked improvement. The water found a way to drip-drip-drip out. I'm no engineer but I'm pretty sure it'd be difficult for the average person to make this work. The product has rendered itself completely unusable. :(
In summary, I suggest you do not buy this product. It is too much of a gamble. There are other steamers on 2DayDeliver in the same price range that won't be such a risk.
3 Stars By DivaSeattle on 2016-01-01 I'm confused by these stellar reviews. This is NOT a great steamer, at all. (AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE THOUGH..) There is a learning curve with this device. It definintely is not faster than ironing, so I don't use it daily. But it does come in handy for those items that you can't put an iron to. I work at a tech company and can wear what I want. I'm at a desk all day so I wear mostly tunic blouses from The Loft and The Limited with jeggings or leggings. My tunics are nice flowy blouses and I don't like ironing them. So I was very excited to get this steamer. The problem is... the steamer intermittently spits out water when you use it.. leaving big splotches of water. To eliminate this I always made sure I was holding the steamer upright.. tried tilting it slightly.. didn't work. Still big gobs of water sputtering onto my clothes intermittently. To alleviate this all I could think was to hold the steamer further away from the garment.. but the stream of steam is so weak that it takes several passes for even very minor wrinkles to come out of my blouse. What I end up with is a still midly wrinkled damp blouse that I have to leave hanging in my bathroom to dry. This wasn't a great purchase.. the only reason I'm giving it two stars is because it heats up very quickly, is small enough to travel well and shipping was great. Other than that.. I'd look elsewhere for a steamer.
UPDATE: 1/13/16 - While I struggled with my product. I must say - the customer service of Pure Enrichment is phenomenal. I was contacted directly by a representative of the company and offered the option of a refund or a replacement. I'm going to say that again - I didn't reach out to them - they reached out to me. (That Never happens!) I was surprised and 200% impressed. With that level of customer service, I can wholeheartedly say - I would purchase again from this company. Well done and thank you Pure Enrichment.
