ESTEAM® Handheld Travel Steamer
- Product Review (submitted on March 3, 2013):
- We have owned three of these gems over the past 10 years. We like to have an extra to take when I travel away from home and one for the family to keep. I am a public speaker and travel often. There are weeks when I need to steam five or more times to get ready for an engagement. Often my family is with me and the steamer gets well used. It has saved me hours of time not having to iron suits and it has saved me hundreds of dollars not having to take our things to cleaners as often. Works excellent on business suits and is great for a quick touch up on dress shirts that have been worn once or twice. The steam it creates comes out in good volume and lasts long enough to do several items of clothing. After hard use the "locking" notches on the plastic housing and lid begin to wear and the lid will not seat tightly. This will cause some leaking when the item ages. I think we had our first one for about four or five years before we decided to replace it. I would recommend buying the liquid cleaner to get the deposits off of the heating element every so often. The directions only say to leave the liquid in for 2 hours but we needed to leave it in over night. It works great. I have bought this as a gift for others and highly recommend it.
