Karcher SC1 Steam cleaner

The Karcher SC1 steam cleaner is a fantastic steam cleaner. I really love how i can be converted from an upright steamer to a handheld with the hose and extra attachments provided. The tools consist of; A stiff nylon brush, a bent nozzle,a smaller T shaped nozzle with stiff bristles, a microfibre cloth for it, and a crevice tool. I can't fault it, it's really powerful and that's the main thing I wanted because I have severe OCD and need something to keep my anxiety of germs and bacteria at bay. This is perfect. There are a few things I don't like about it; 1) The power steam button has a lock which needs to be stronger. It tends to unlock especially if you have large hands, even a slight amount of pressure can unlock it but it's not major. Also scrubbing he floor vigorously can have an impact on this lock. 2) The heat up time is 3 mins and I am an impatient person. 3) The water reservoir could be bigger, because it uses up water too quickly. All in all, a fantastic steamer for the price and I would definitely recommend this to friends and family.

Pros: Powerful, Very multifunctional and comes with lots of tools Cons: 3 min heat up time., short cable, Water runs out quickly

I find it to be good value for money easy to use, it has various types of tools. Which means that I could clean in tight place's like my oven and taps.ive cleaned my kitchen, bathroom, oven, all my floors all looks really clean. I wish I distance have to carry the steamer around while I'm cleaning, but other than that it's a good product,

Great cleaner if you can overlook the flaws..

I wanted to love this steam cleaner. When it arrived and I saw just how small it is, how compact and easy to store, all of the additional parts, I was excited! Unfortunately as soon as I put it to use I was left frustrated. The tank only holds 0.25 litres of water and takes three minutes to heat up, to time this, you need to set a timer otherwise you won't know it's ready to use. There is no indicator to tell you so. It leaves the floor soaking when you first start using it, to the extent that the rest will dry before the area you started on. To activate the steam, you need to press your thumb on a very stiff button and hold it, this is painful! I didn't use the cleaner for the maximum 8 minutes, and even so I had to keep swapping thumbs to keep the pressure on as it began to hurt, I resorted to using two hands to operate it so I could push both thumbs down on the button. A simple locking function or swapping the button to underneath where your fingers naturally sit would make this so much easier to operate. As previously mentioned the maximum run time is 8 minutes. Ok for small jobs but if you plan on cleaning all of your floors, going on to bathroom tiles or other surfaces you will need to allow a lot of time. When you turn the cleaner off, you need to hold down the button yet again to release the left over steam and allow the tank to cool down before you can remove the lid to fill it back up. You then need to wait another three minutes for the water to heat up, for another 8 minutes of use, to repeat this time and time again. It get's tedious rather quickly. Previous steam cleaners I have owned have a light to show when the product is hot enough to use , which also turns off when the water level dips too low, this would be another handy function for the Karcher so you can see if you have enough left to start on the next job, even a clear window to show the water level would be a great addition. Don't get me wrong the results from this product are great, everything is gleaming, it's ok for a quick job, but any more than that expect achy thumbs and a lot of cooling the tank, reheating and cooling. A few simple changes would take this from an OK product to an incredible one.

Pros: compact, easy to manoeuvre , smear free cleaning Cons: having to hold power button on at all times to use, maximum 8 minutes of cleaning time, no indication of being ready to use, short cable, time consuming to refill and reuse
