I use a steamer a lot as I am in the garment business. Works great. Has a steady flow of steam. Heats up quickly. Pepto Pink Color does not bother me. This is a great deal for a trusted brand. Only complaints: -I thought the body of the machine would be metal- It is a heavy duty plastic. -I wish the garment pole went a bit higher. To steam the bottom of jeans or dresses you have to lower the steam wand which will produce water drips when turned on it's side. -I wish the garment pole was retractable for easy travel. You have to unscrew each section of the pole.

I used this product twice & it no longer works. Too much trouble to pack it up & send it back. Don't think that a hand held plastic steamer is going to do the job that you want.

This is a great valet for the price. That said, some of the construction is middling in quality. (In my case, half of the press-in plastic buttons that hide the screw assemblies didn't want to go in.) If this doesn't bother you, by all means this is a real bargain.

We have purchased several steamers over the years and find the Sunbeam S1500 to be the best. We do not have a lot space to keep a steamer and the Sunbeam is the perfect size. The only feature about the steamer I would like to see changed is the rack where you hang the clothes for steaming. It is light plastic and even one item bends the hanger. However, overall it is a great item and would buy again.

This is a great unit. I saw some reviews complaining about not being able to use your own hangers on it and that is just not true. The hanger provided folds down and on both sides are plastic studs that you can hang your own hangers on. It's really nice that the provided hanger folds down to make it easy for storage. This is a really good product.

The wood and chrome pieces are very nice. The caps that cover the screws are plastic - kind of cheesy but it blends in well. The tie rack is not symetrical - one side is 2 1/2 inches and the other is 3 inches. The only clothes valets I've seen better were much more expensive.

I purchased this valet as a Christmas gift for my husband. It arrived on time and was well -packaged. The valet requires full assembly; but, that is accomplished rather easily, with the help of good directions and an included Allen wrench. The components were alll included and in excellent condition. My only complaints: 1) the color of the wood is not anything near a mahogany shade; it is more of a clear cherry color. 2) The plugs which are included to cover the screw heads are plastic, not wood. That being said, this is still a good product for the money. It is an attractive and useful addition to our bedroom. My husband is very happy with it and uses it every day. I plan to stain the valet to match our furniture.

This steamer, like many products today is made mostly of plastic. Although it is a travel steamer, since I live in an apartment, I needed a steamer that wouldn't take up much space. Although the steamer is very compact, it does a great job of removing wrinkles. I primarily wanted to remove the wrinkles from my husband's wool work pants. My husband and I hate ironing and our dry cleaning bills were very high because my hubby would bring 5 pairs of slacks to the cleaners every week because they would get so wrinkled after a long work day. I read good reviews for this product and decided to purchase it. Glad I did. I use distilled water (although you don't have to) and I am able to steam about 3 or 4 pants before I have to refill the water container on the steamer. The unit heats up very qucikly. I like the fact that my bathroom does not get steamed up when the unit is on. I have a hook on the back of my bathroom door and I just hang up the pants and lightly go over them with the steamer. It takes almost no time for the wrinkles to disappear. I do, however, wish that the unit came with an on-off switch.
