Non-stop cleaning with fresh water? The FC 3 Cordless with innovative self-cleaning function makes it possible – say goodbye to the conventional mop. The rotating rollers are constantly wetted with fresh water while the collected dirt ends up in the dirty water tank. The device leaves floors up to 20 per cent* cleaner than conventional mops. Thanks to its slimline shape, the FC 3 Cordless not only reaches easily under furniture but it also saves storage space. It even features a swivel joint for effortless cleaning of corners and edges. The floor drying time is only around 2 minutes, making it perfectly suitable for use on all types of hard flooring (including parquet, for example). The powerful lithium-ion battery ensures maximum freedom of movement, as cleaning is no longer tied to a power outlet. And the intuitive LED display provides continuous feedback on the battery charge state.* The FC 3 Cordless achieves up to 20% better cleaning performance compared to a conventional mop with floor cloth cover in the "Wiping" test category. Refers to average test results for cleaning efficiency, dirt pick-up and edge cleaning.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My cleaner just isn’t working properly The first time I used it it left dirty marks on the floor and also left the floor wet and had to use a mop to dry the floor. The second time the rollers were popping of all the time even though I twisted them back on and followed the instructions no I’m no very impressed with this at all

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Used the floor cleaner yesterday for the first time, easy to set up and very easy to use. It glides over the floor better than I expected and did an excellent job. Really glad I bought this, makes cleaning the floor a pleasure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Bought two weeks ago. It’s everything I hoped it would be, light, easy to manoeuvre and does just as you would expect. Tiled floors in utility and kitchen, four rooms with Karndean. All washed and dried in no time at all. Haven’t found the problems some reviewers have, so far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and easy to use Bought this to replace an FC5 which was much heavier and more awkward because of the wires. Delivery was amazing - ordered in the afternoon, arrived following morning! This one is so much easier to use (half the weight) and plenty of battery time to do all our downstairs area (tiles and hardwood floors to kitchen/diner, living room, hall, office and cloakroom). Bit noisier than FC5, but more compact, so fits better in utility area. You do need to vacuum first (as it says in the blurb), but not an issue for us. Would like to see an integrated charge station rather than having to plug the appliance in each time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I’m not very impressed with the finished ‘clean’ floor. It’s probably brilliant on floors that are already pristine clean to start with and are completely level. My floors have lot of muddy dogs feet on them and I’m still having to scrub the floor before using the Karcher FC3. If the machine touches skirting boards or other pieces of furniture it leaves a muddy tide mark. I wish I’d not spent my money on the product and wouldn’t recommend it to my friends.
