Been using a steamer that I purchased from another company years ago.
I guess I was used to bad performance!!
This steamer is great. Strong, steady steam. The built in hanger is a real plus.
I would recommend this steamer. I use mine instead of ironing. Seldom do
I bring out the iron. I live a pretty casual life and if you are a neat freak, you many
not rely on a steamer as I do.....but it's pretty darn good.
I researched this steamer before I purchased it. It was not a let down. Ladies and gents, put away your iron! What took me 20 minutes now takes me about 35 seconds. The longest time is turning your clothing item around to steam the other side.
This steamer is fast, easy and affordable. Great features include gripping hangers, large water tank and a long hose. It heats up in seconds! Easy to use and makes your clothing look great.
If you are looking for that hard starched look, this isn't the item for you, but if you like a nice pressed look buy it!
This item has made my life much, much easier and my clothing look great!!
This Sunbeam Classic garment steamer takes the wrinkles away in a second. I can go through a whole load of laundry in about 15 or 20 minutes, and doing it is a breeze.
I would recommend this steamer to everyone who cannot afford to send every single piece of clothing to be ironed. It really does a great job removing wrinkles.
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.
I spent an enormous amount of time selecting the brand of steamer that I would purchase. That part was the most frustrating of all. Well, I can save YOU the trouble I went through. This is the one! I love the Sunbeam S1500 Classic Garment Steamer. It's very user friendly and sturdier than I thought it would be. I even steamed my jeans with it. I must say, though, that I am the type to take my clothes out of the dryer and hang them up immediately, so my jeans probably weren't as wrinkled as those that people leave in the dryer all tumbled and jumbled together with other clothes.
I was concerned that the height of the steamer's clothes' hanger wouldn't be sufficient for me (I'm 5'6") and that I would have to do a lot of bending, which would take a toll on my back and neck problems. But once again, I was pleasantly surprised at how high the pole actually reached once I had extended it fully. It required very little bending.
In no time at all, I had gotten the hang of it, and in fact, within an hour of setting it up, I had steamednearly all of the trousers(7 pair) that I had just taken out of the wash. I even learned to use the creaser within that time frame as well. It made awesome creases. I really didn't know that it would have a creaser when I first purchased it, so that was a relief that it did. Of course, I didn't get it perfect on the very first try, but the steamer made my errors easy to fix by simply resteaming the section of the crease that wasn't perfect and then using the creaser to fix it. It does take a little extra effort to hang the pants, but I was able hang them full length (from waist to hem), something I thought wasn't possible based on the online photos I'd seen of people using the steamer. However, I do think that I will probably purchase (or make) a steam board in the future, only because it will be so much faster. But the hanger will still be great for steaming blouses and just refreshing clothing in general.
By the way, there were no leaks from the machine nor the hose. The hose is very well insulated and never got too hot to touch. The steamer heats within seconds. I still wait at least a minute or two, though, just to make sure that it really is ready. The water tank is very ample. I was able to steam all of the trousers I mentioned, and there was still water left in the reservoir. The steamer takes regular water from the tap. Distilled water would probably be better for the machine in the long run though, for obvious reasons--less sediment deposit.
I haven't tried any of the other steamer brands out there, but I can assure you that this one will do the job and do it like a pro. I see no reason to pay more money than I have to, and I feel that the price I paid (around ($95 on sale) was well worth it for ease of use, quality and durability, and time-saving. It stores away nicely, too. You can lower the hanging rod or leave it up for convenience sake because it doesn't take up much room at all. I really think you will love it.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is really good. I was hoping that I hadn't purchased something that would be broken in a couple of months. I wasn't disappointed.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? exactly as described, and perhaps even a bit better
This little machine has saved me a lot of money and time. I bought it for my wedding and got rid of all the wrinkles on my wedding dress and all my brides maid's dresses. I have had it for over two years now and use it almost everyday! Great product!!!
The product seems too large to be practical for people living in homes with narrow rooms. It's too large & unsightly to fit into a small laundry room & requires as much storage space as a vacuum cleaner. I have to keep it in my guest bathroom which makes the bathroom look messy & crowded (who wants to look at hoses, hangers, or water tanks when you're using a bathroom?). It's too heavy to make the cost of return shipping practical, so I may try to sell it at a garage sale & buy a smaller "storage friendly" & compact product. I only need something to take the wrinkles out of things in my closet & don't need 45 minutes of steam. It's probably great for a large family with a large laundry room and/or walk in closets, where it might be hidden when not in use, but even after emptying & attempting to dry it you probably wouldn't trust that it's dry enough to store in a carpeted closet.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Accurate: black is black
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is fine but the humongous size makes it difficult to store or use
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The tank portion is quite large & can't fold up for easy storage
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.

Thank you for your interest in the Sunbeam S1500 Classic Garment Steamer. With a little research and according to the manufacturer the tank holds just under 2 quarts of water, should not have starch put in it but used along side of spray starch and the hose and attachments reach from 35 to 50 inches. Thank you for your business and shopping Overstock.com.

3) starch should not 'be poured' in the reservoir
Have a great day.
