Shark Portable Steam PocketÂ® Cleaner
My mom brought me this because i couldnt find any product or cleaning pad that would scrub my shower properly. i used and was amazed it took all the gunk right off and im no longer embsrassed for my friends to use my shower. So glad i found this. you do have to hold the button the whole time but it didnt bother me at all especially with the result i got! BUY ONE!

I found this cumbersome and unuseable.
Having to hold the trigger down while trying to use the machine was unbelieveable. Most jobs require the use of two hands to hold things like holding a burner bib in one hand while directing the steam nozzel with other...didn't lift the dirt off the bib at all--or the inside the oven.
The other parts for steaming the counters etc. weren't of any use at all. this allowed the steam to escape from the back side while nothing/ verylittle got directed towards what you are trying to clean, defeating the whole purpose.

Another great product from Shark.
I mainly use this for cleaning the bathroom (especially the toilet) and the kitchen. It does a great job on my greasy hand tools too.
If you use this item with common sense it works great and it makes your cleaning time easier and quicker.
I must say I wouldnt have bought it unless it was on sale.

Shark Portable Steam Cleaner
After recieving this as a gift, I would reccommend to anyone who wants "deep cleaning". The assorted nozzels and covers allow you to clean so many tough to do spots.... if you happen to have a flat paint on your walls and have a hard time cleaning them, try the wedge cleaning tool! It is amazing to clean your walls! The smaller steam nozzels will clean so many hard to reach places, such as vents and fans on appliances, to the hinges on your toilet, even the railings on your staircase...
Give it a try, but put it to the test!!

I dislike ironing, I thought this might make the job easier. It is not easy to use and control. It's does not work to release wrinkles. I could not tell the difference between my shirts steamed and ones that dried on their own. I ended up going back to ironing. Another gadget for the gadget grave yard. I would return it if I had not thrown away the packaging so soon.

Major design flaw
Unit has major design flaws that make it extremely uncomfortable and awkward to use and in my opinion, could have been easily avoided by the manufacturer. That is, the water canister is very heavy and because the steam wand has a limited reach, you must hold the canister up while continually pressing down the button that ejects the steam (button must be manually depressed at all times), while holding the cleaning wand with the other hand. The power cord is very long, but as the steam wand is so short and you have to be holding the canister constantly anyway, the long power cord is redundant and useless and just gets in the way. I find my arm and wrist get sore & tired very quickly and it`s awkward not having your other hand free to work while you`re cleaning. To clean my windows (which is mainly why I bought it), I have to have someone helping. As mentioned in another review somewhere, using a velcro strap helps by holding the steam button down for you, but because the steam cord has such a limited reach, you still have to hold the unit up while you work. An on & off button on the unit plus a longer steam cord would have avoided this issue. Another con is it`s incredibly loud when in operation. Pros include very effective high pressure hot steam, and the ability to avoid using chemical cleaners (my windows DO come clean). I think those who complained about defective units that only projected warm, weak steam flow did not connect the steam wand and accessory pieces. The unit will only blow warm weak steam if you try to use it by itself. Attach the steam wand and any cleaning accessory, and it works fine. However, the pros do not outweigh the cons for me.

Bad batch of products
I purchased this steamer, read all the information on how to use it and put it all together. I turned it on to use it and found it would only blow warm wet air. I returned it to the store foe an exchange and before leaving the store I try the new unit out to make sure it worked and found it did the some, only warm air. With the help of customer service we tried 5 more units and they all failed. Not a good day for Canadian Tire. I received a refund and went home with nothing.

Does a great job
I received the Steam cleaner as a gift 7 months ago and have been using it regularly.
It still pushes out the steam with the same intensity it did as the day I bought it. It comes with a long power cord so you are able to walk around in any room you are using it in. I used it on the weekend to clean my BBQ that has been sitting in storage all winter and it did an amazing job.
The downfall is that I do find it awkward to use as one hand cleans the other needs to keep constant pressure on the steam button and it is a little bulky with the adapter cord.
