Rated 3 out of 5 by iron110 may be better for delicate fabrics
I bought this to use on delicate fabrics, especially the thin polyester or rayon flimsy blouses that are still trending, and also some gauzy-type blouses and dresses as well. I admit I still prefer the crisp look a conventional iron gives, but another reason I bought this steamer is so that my 15-year-old special-needs daughter could use it on her own, as I feel an iron poses more of a burn risk. She did use it, and she feels she sees a difference in the before and after look of her blouse. I felt I didn't really get results unless I actually touched the steamer to the fabric, which the directions say you're really not supposed to do. I'm still glad I purchased it, but I don't find it as necessary as I once thought. I'm still happier with a "cool" iron, but I have peace of mind that I can use a steamer option if I ever wish, now that I own one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PopcornPerrier "Extreme" Effectiveness & Convenience!
This hand-held steamer is FANTASTICALLY effective. Clothing to which it's service has been applied looks as if it just arrived from the cleaners, or, as if it was fully ironed the "old fashioned" way on a cumbersome ironing board and with a traditional iron. It's handy in that the handle is easily gripped. The water reservoir is ample. The unit heats quickly and produces an astonishing amount of steam. The attachments help to add finishing detailed touches such as smoothing and creasing. At this price, and for this performance-level, this is a purchase that everyone should consider making for themselves. I'm buying several more for gifts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jcvawi very pleased with results
I read most of the reviews before I purchased this product. My old steamer was also a Conair, but was very hard to use, took a long time & did not do a good job. This one, heats up VERY quickly, there is a lot of steam, & it easily takes care of the wrinkles. Received t-shirts in the mail, so they were folded in a box. The Conair took care of the wrinkles very easily. In fact, I went ahead & steamed 3 more t-shirts for the people who were going to put them on at my house. They came out very neat. Now, I've just used it for those few items, but I hope it will continue to impress me. Taking it on a long weekend & am looking forward to de-wrinkling my clothes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by scuba4kitty First steamer, maybe my expectations were to high.
I got a great deal on the Conair- Extreme Steam garment steamer,and by the reviews I had high expectations. Not ever owning or using a steamer, I don't have anything to compare to, so maybe my expectations were too high.
It does work, but takes just as long as ironing. Jury is still out as I use it more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shein Great Product
This product appealed to me because it's all handheld. My last one was a water tank that sat on the ground with a long hose and took up a lot of space. I'm very happy with it's weight and size. It's steam flow is more percise, and I don't have to fill up the water after initial filling if I am only doing a couple of outfits. So practically never have to refill. I was worried since it is a small tank. I think it's very quick to heat...maybe a minute? It's everything I wanted in a steamer.

Bought this in replace of my upright steamer that quit working. I haven't tried it yet, but hope to be pleased with it. That is why I rated it average.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jayjay This product works amazing !
It is a bit bigger than the picture which is good and works very well! It is easy to use and does its job. I also like that it comes with a brush, another to creat crease and one for delicate clothing . I would recommend this item heats up quick and easy to use .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nikki1Angel2 It works great
I was hesitant on ordering a handheld steamer because some of them do not work properly. The Conair is easy to hold and not heavy once filled with water. The steam is strong, hot and it certainly did take the wrinkles out. I am very pleased with the Conair Extreme Steamer. I would recommend this product.
