Rated 4 out of 5 by from Steam Cleans with pressure After a bad experience with a cheaper steam cleaner it was great to have a steam cleaner that gives out steam. I was expecting maybe more steam by is adequate for what I want and obviously a lot cheaper than the models used by professionals. Easy to set, I should have ready the instructions first that explained that when you first use it you need to wait for a few minutes for the filer to fill with water! Other than that no problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Machine So I've had this a couple of weeks now and LOVE it. Money well spent as far as I'm concerned. Easy to set up and does exactly what it says it's going to. The ONLY downside of it for me is that the cable on it is quite short (in my opinion) and is a loose fitting. By that I mean when you're finished with it there's not a 'place' to put the cable. I think it would benefit from being an automatically retractable cable to an internal housing (may not be design possible I guess). But I wouldn't let that put you off as the actual purpose of the machine, steamer, is fantastic. I've been steaming EVERYTHING (even my wooden floors - must be on lowest setting though) and it's great. Only reason I didn't give it an overall 5 Star is because of the length and housing of the cable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love steam New to steam and I’m sad it took me so long. The SC3 is fabulous. It’s fast heating up and is easy to use and light and portable. I’ve taken mine to my mother in laws. Night and day difference of using a real cleaner on her floors vs the swifter mop her cleaning ladies use. The only learning curve tip is that after it has heated up bleed the hose of old water back into the machine otherwise you get a bunch of old water on your floor. Thanks Karcher!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use Love the steam clean which I think is very effective. Would have preferred if the electro cable retracted inside machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second time around This is my second purchase of this item. It was so good initially my son 'borrowed' it and it never came back. Good service and it does exactly what it says.
