Works flawlessly and looks very durable.

Very disappointed with product. The actual machine disperses too much water onto the floor and makes it soaking wet. Be very careful if you have wooden floors as my floors cannot take that type of drenching. There is no way to lessen the water flow. Also, the lead is very short, the couple of times it was used I needed to use an extension lead throughout the house. Not worth the money, I have gone back to a simple microfibre mop. Overall very disappointing and a waste of money!!

Good just for refreshing
it is not for stuff that's dirty from a long time. It's more about killing bacteries.

Great floor cleaner
Great floor cleaner, the steam leaves the room smelling and looking really clean and fresh. Took stubborn stains off every surface in my house. Amazing customer service from Argos as always. Happy customer

Great quality steam mop
Steam mop is easy to use and cleans fantastic, takes stains off floor that normal mopping won't take off! No more on hands and knees scrubbing tiles! The only cons I have is that it would have been nice if it included the Flexi hose for when using with the powerjet nozzle. Also would be nice to have a high/medium/low setting so it could be used on laminate floor on low setting, I would not recommend using this on laminate as the steam power is all or nothing!

The steam cleaner easy to use and does a good job
Ones you get use to taking the tank top off and the length of the cable witch could bit longer it is very easy to use and does a great job it is also great for cleaning round the taps

Could be more powerful
Used it first time on a heavily marked wetfloor. I removed the stains easily. 2 drawbacks. Not very powerful and a small water tank it is easy to use .

Very disappointed with this product. It cleans the floor ok but not very powerful. The worse thing is that the button you need to press for steam is very stiff and it has really hurt my thumb. this cannot be normal and who is testing these things at JL. they just don't stock the top things any more. The wire is also short and doesn't reach the end of my kitchen

I wish I had bought a higher spec model
The steam mop and hand-held steam cleaner work fine - I can't compare with other brands, but I wish I had gone for the higher spec model with extension hose and window nozzle. I plan to buy these accessories separately as I don't think I shall get full use out of the machine without them. The tank is small, which means it is not too heavy, but it does run out quickly. That said, one tank was enough to do the kitchen floor. Not unhappy with purchase, but will be happier with more accessories.
