Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prepare for a shock after using this... After buying this product and using it around the house, it quickly became clear how well this steam cleaner works, the heat up time is amazing, for only a 1900w heater its pretty fast, I would recommend holding the nozzle over a sink/bath after you first turn it on as it will flow water for a few seconds while it primes the pipe. Other than that it works fantastically at cleaning every where I tried it, which was the kitchen floor, bathroom sink, bath and tiles and all cleaned very nicely. A neat little trick I found to speed up the time to dry on the tiles/mirrors was to pair up my WV5 Premium window vac to soak up any excess vapour left on them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as hoped Bought the SC3 a few months ago to replace the SC2 which had died. The SC3 is not as good as the SC2. For example, the "few drops of water" that come out when you switch on to steam is more like a half pint all over your floor. The "ready to use warm up of 30secs" is pure fantasy. I allow 5 minutes. Also there is no visual sign that the water had heated like there was on the SC2 ie on the SC2 the "on" button stopped flashing. It doesn't on the SC3 so all in all very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just what i needed Needed a steam cleaner to clean the greats kitchen, the sc3 has enough power to do the though job and it allows you to fill in the water tank on the go without having to wait or turn off, the limescale filter is a good plus..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for cleaning I bought this a few months back so I could use it mainly for the floors as going around with a hand mop made things too wet and took too long to dry. But I found myself using this to clean the oven, the walls, the worktops, bathroom and even the chairs that the little one seems to like drawing on and take it right off. Even the wife tried it and said it is amazing so much quicker to get around for a quick clean than getting all the floor cleaning equipment out. A few bad things with this that are livable with is the lead is far too short I have to either have an extension lead attached or to keep switching plug sockets. Something that is a little annoying but avoidable, if you have let it sit for a while it seems condensation or water has entered the steam pipe and when you press to use a small puddle comes out. I am near to a sink most of the time so press it first with the pipe removed to remove the water then is fine again until it is left to sit for a few minutes then just repeat. The pads on the floor cleaning part once damp become sloppy and find the plastic touching the floor, simple solution was to sew on a some elastic and a clip to keep it held in the right place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Truly amazing, even my husband has fallen in love with it. So far cleaned some windows,the cooker, fridge, air vents, radiators, picture frames with glass, mirrors, shower cubicle, floors, paint behind the cooker and our painted table and cupboard. This is amazing considering we've only spent a couple of hours doing this. The only minus is the lack of more cloths, luckily I have plenty of old towels to cut up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I got this to replace my Vax steamer that I kept dropping and breaking, I love that it's like a pull along rather that a stick cleaner.. Shame that you can't add detergent to the water just for the smell. The cloth could be a bit better fitting as when wet it hangs off. I use floor cloths from £1 shop and double them up which works for me.
