Steamer?

AdrianaM

Can anyone recommend a good clothing steamer? I'm looking for one as an alternative to an iron for my nicer garments and suit bottoms.


I'd really appreciate any suggestions!

Maybe a Jiffy?

I have heard good things about the Jiffy Steamer, but have never tried one myself. Maybe someone that has worked retail knows the type of steamer that their store uses...

I used to work retail but I don't remember what brand of steamers we used. The ones in most stores would be professional strength so likely more expensive and bigger than ones for personal use.

I was curious about pricing so I looked up Jiffy Steamer on Amazon.com and you are looking at about $150 for the Residential Model or $50 for the Travel Version. For a good quality one this price doesn't seem too bad.

Does anyone know if this is standard pricing for steamers?

Rowenta

I have a Rowenta steamer similar to this one (not sure the exact model) and I really like it! I'm not sure how it compares to other steamers as it's my first one, but it does make a difference on sheer clothing that is difficult/impossible to iron and it sure beats the 'ole turn on the shower and close the bathroom door trick.

Sunbeam??

I think I bought the Sunbeam steamer. It's hidden away in the closet because I rarely use it, simply because when the clothes are still hot in the dryer, we take them out and fold or hang them up right away. The reason I bought it is because our apartment is small and I didn't want to have to drag out an ironing board in here. With this, you can just hang it and steam it. My sheer type shirts and blouses are always hanging in the closet anyways, so I don't really even use it on those. I guess I might one day, so it's good to know I can just steam them if I need to :-)

It works fine, no problems, doesn't leak, is a hand held model, not too heavy, has a brush attachment like Ali's, and was relatively inexpensive. I think it was around $40 at Walmart. I don't get much use out of it, but I very well may one day :-)

how about....

I saw an ad in the paper today for T-Fal steamers for $139 at Home Outfitters. T-Fal has a good rep so I'd check it out

Rowenta!

Rowenta Garment Steamer all the way.
Works fast, heats up in about 30 seconds, doesnt leak, rolls!!!
It adjust for height and you can use it to steam your curtains, your couch, whatever you want. I stick to clothes and roller blinds, and curtains. Its great for doing bed skirts too because the hand held wand can be used in many directions. It does get hot so becareful! If you hate ironing, this is for you. It doesnt get it as crisp as an iron but it does the job for those on the go.
