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.
