Buyers Guide

Apart from the obvious considerations, around price and budget, there are a couple of things to think about before you buy a steam cleaner. These include

  • Length of Power Cable. If you intend to use your steam cleaner in every room in the house you will ned to consider the location of plug sockets and the length of the power cord as you will not wanting to be moving the plug around constantly. This will not only prove to be a problem as far as stress is concerned, but it will also make the job take longer as you wait for the water to reheat.
  • What does the Steam Cleaner do? This is something which can vary from one steam cleaner to the next so you will need to check that it has all of the attachments you need to clean your home in the way you want to.
  • Heat time. While this is not always a big concern for some people, having a steam cleaner which heats the water quickly means you can get the jobs done in less time without having to wait too long.

Top 5 Best Steam Cleaner Reviews

1. Steamfast SF-370WH

The Steamfast Multi-Purpose Steam Cleaner loves the jobs you really don’t like to do. Using the natural cleaning power of steam alone, it will cut through the dirtiest jobs in no time. The water tank holds 45 ounces and provides 45 minutes of steam cleaning power, enough to deep clean an entire room.

Despite the large capacity tank, the steam cleaner is heated and ready to go in just 8 minutes. With a 6.5 foot steam hose, 15 different attachments and a variable steam control trigger, this steam cleaner is extremely versatile. The attachments included will clean hard floors, windows, faucets, car wheels/hubcaps, BBQ grills and many more things.

Not only does the Multi-Purpose Steam Cleaner get all of these things clean, it also sanitizes due to the heat generated by the steam. This makes it an ideal cleaning solution for anyone with a baby or young child in the home. It can even be used to sanitize children’s toys, play equipment, highchair and almost anything else the child comes in to contact with.

The Steamfast Multi-Purpose Steam Cleaner provide an excellent all round solution for the home at a very reasonable price.

2. Steamfast SF-275 Canister

The Steamfast Canister Steam Cleaner is the baby brother of the Multi-Purpose Steam Cleaner, but does just as much! With a 48 ounce water tank and an 8 minute heat time, you do not need to be waiting for long to get stuck in to 45 minutes of cleaning.

The Canister Steam Cleaner has 17 accessories included to tackle every greasy, dirty job around the home from cleaning hard floors and greasy BBQ grills to sanitizing children’s toys and giving windows a streak free shine. The jet nozzle is perfect for getting soap scum and lime scale from around the faucet as well as bringing tile grout back to its original color.

One of the biggest benefits of a steam cleaning system is that you do not need anything other than water for your cleaning, so once you have bought the steam cleaner there is no other expense needed to get your house clean.

A great little cleaner for a reasonable price which get the job done perfectly.

3. McCulloch MC1385 Deluxe

The McCulloch Deluxe Canister System is third in our list and while it is a great steam cleaner, it is not quite as good as the previous two. The design of the Steam cleaner looks sophisticated and quite robust but there could be an issue with the movement of the unit. As the Canister system is designed somewhat like a gold trolley, you need to have one hand free in order to move it about. This may not be a big problem for some and it is compensated by a 10 foot steam hose, but it might depend on the job you are doing as to how inconvenient this is.

On a more positive note, the Deluxe Canister System has a massive 64 ounce water tank and a heat up time of 12 minutes. While this steam cleaner takes longer to get going, the larger tank means that you get 120 minutes of cleaning before it needs a refill. There is a variable steam control on the handle to give you versatile cleaning power and 23 accessories for a wide variety of tasks, including a floor mop for hard wood floors, window squeegee for smear free windows and mirrors, a jet nozzle for those hard to reach places and numerous others.

The McCulloch Deluxe Canister System is a little more expensive than other steam cleaners in our chart and unfortunately is not the very best but still does a good job.

4. McCulloch MC-1275 Heavy-Duty

McCulloch take the number 4 spot in our chart of the best steam cleaners. The heavy duty steam cleaner is smaller in design than the Deluxe Canister System but offers very similar cleaning power and versatility.

The 48 ounce water tank takes about 5 minutes to heat up and provides 2 hours of continuous steam, the variable steam control on the handle allows for intermittent steam and this can give a longer steam cleaning time. There are attachments included for steam cleaning hard wood floors, windows and mirrors as well as BBQ grills and ovens.

The steam cleaner can be used indoors and outside and is great for cleaning the car wheels and interior, patio furniture and children’s toys.

Overall this is a good steam cleaner but it is more expensive than our number one, is it really worth the extra cost? We are really not sure.

5. Kazoo 1300W/27 oz

The Kazoo Multi-Purpose Professional Steam Cleaner is among the cheapest option in our chart and while the price might be an advantage, there is the question of why this machine rates so low when you consider that it is a ‘professional’ cleaning system.

The Kazoo does everything that a steam cleaner should, within reason. The product is made in China and the instruction manual has been translated (badly) in to English, this is a bit of a problem when you consider the safety implications of working with hot steam.

The steam cleaner will clean hard wood floors, tiles, ovens, BBQ grills and windows/mirrors. There is an attachment for carpets but this is designed to ‘freshen’ only and will not get a good deep down clean.

The Kazoo will clean your home, which means it is not bad for the cost, but you will need to navigate the instruction manual first!
