This review is from: steamfast SF-320 Portable Steam Cleaner
Pros: easy to use, cleans well, all accessories included
Cons: steam varies over a cycle
Other Thoughts: I bought this unit strictly due to the price. Without any other reviews I was willing to take the chance, and decided I'd post after using it a few times.
I'll start by saying YES, it comes with all the attachments you would expect in a new unit.
Now on to how it works. I've now used it 3 times since purchase about 4 weeks ago. It is an in line heating unit (think tankless hot water heater) so it heats quickly. I found that the steam pressure cycles on the unit I have in a predictable manner over about 2.5 minutes. I don't know if this is how a std unit works, or if it part of the flaws making my unit a refurbished unit. Anyway, it starts out slow for about 30 seconds then I get 30 - 60 seconds of really high powered steam then it slowly tapers off to the same slow point for 30 seconds. Likely this is due to the electric heating elements warm up cool down cycle. At first this was annoying, but after using for a while I found it actually was useful. You can prep an area with a low pressure steam to get easy to remove items off then use the higher pressure steam to clean off particularly difficult items. I only used one or two of the attachments before deciding that it is easier for me to just use the wand with jet attachment in one hand and a (newly purchased) firm scrub brush in the other. Steam, brush, repeat. I just feel I get a better look at what I'm actually doing.
All in all the unit works great. I find that putting it down on the floor is easier than using it over my shoulder since by moving around you move the water and can starve the unit of steam depending on how you hold it. The wand is lightweight and I have repeatedly used the unit for more than 60 minutes without an issue.
