Features of Quest Handheld Steam Cleaner
- Power is 1050 watt
- The Quest Handheld Steam Cleaner is no larger than a kettle
- The lead is not as long as a vacuum cleaner lead but longer than a kettle lead
- It comes with four adapters for curtains, furniture, grease and carpets.
- I must confess I did have a little battle with the screw top at first but easily figured it out.
- I had a larger steamer previously. But it was so bulky to get out and set up. It was just a chore and quite honestly the attachments to this are much better quality than my other one.. Also this is so handy to use
- Great for cleaning windows and pvc surrounds but you need to finish off with a microfibre cloth
- Good for cleaning grouting on tiles using the small brush attachment
- Good for cleaning doors. Although again best using a microfibre cloth for the beading around panels after steaming.
- Extension hose is really useful as is the small brush attachment
- Heats up very quickly.
- Not very good for removing grease build up on ovens but again the small brush attachment is useful
- Same for scum on your bath or sink (a bigger brush attachment would be more useful for this).
- Bought this steamer after studying the reviews. I would like to say that I am satisfied but trying to get the top off to fill it is a nightmare
- It should be a simple process but mine takes a lot of manipulation until it eventually opens
- You need to keep refilling if doing lengthy jobs but that is expected
- The electrical cord doesn’t stretch that far in case you need to steam clean a surface in the middle of the room and secondly
- The water capacity is limited as it would be far too heavy to hold in one hand if it held any more
- This steamer is a very bad design
- It is impossible to clean the purpose and pressing the button at the same time. The button is very hard to press for long time
- The cable is far too short
- The hose did not want to attach properly
- I feel with some small adjustments to how the nozzle is made and how the attachments are actually connected this could be a great machine – it would seem that it just needs an adjustment to make a stronger connection point.
- The Quest Handheld Steam Cleaner instruction book could have been a bit more detailed. I found it quite unprofessional as it was full of atrocious spelling mistakes.
- Easy to use although it would be nice to be able to see when filling it initially with water how much is in there
- the Quest Handheld Steam Cleaner is poor at removing stains on carpets
Performance of Quest Handheld Steam Cleaner
- The Quest Handheld Steam Cleaner is cheap. So you tend to get what you pay for. Some customers though it even then was not worth it’s money. Saying that they still had to use a lot of elbow grease
- The steam was not forceful enough to move the grease and that it kept running out of water
- Customers did not think the areas were any cleaner just by using the spray
- Though it may be of more use once you had done an initial deep clean of the house using elbow grease
- It’s light and easy to use once you get the hang of which attachments fit on where
- Did heat up quite quickly. But there is not much pressure behind the steam so doesn’t exactly clean as much as I would like
- Other users found it useful for cleaning small household ‘steaming’ jobs.
- This steamer is great for those little jobs you can’t get at or reach, however it doesn’t hold s great deal of water so it has to be refilled constantly
- It did get to those stains and marks that I just couldn’t get with other cleaners
- The Quest Handheld Steam Cleaner does clean windows well although. The angle of the swivelling window cleaning tool doesn’t quite make it for the lowest section of the French windows
- Leaves no streaks after cleaning the windows
- For the price the Quest Handheld Steam Cleaner this is great for small areas. Such as your cooker, fridge, and freezer
- Removed my carpet stains but no good for more ingrained stains>
- Great for getting grease marks of your oven. The steam helps to loosen the dirt which can be scraped or wiped off afterwards
- Best with the oven to steam it, wipe it, repeat two or three times. Though actually only took me about 1-2 mins in total to clean the oven door
- The Quest Handheld Steam Cleaner cleans grouting very well, but you need to hold the nozzle close to the area you are trying to clean
- Good for removing grime from bathroom tiles
