Rated 4 out of 5 by Gabsnvegas Product is okay
I have owned a shark steam cleaner before, and was very fond of it. This is a very different machine than the one-padded one.
Received the box, and it was a little beat up. The manual was creased and folded, as if it were old. Also there was water in the tank, but if you read the manual it explains that they test them.
First use, right out of the box, there didnt seem to be any steam, but the pad was very hot to the touch. The pad also was turned a nasty color brown, so i figured it was working. Don't watch the infomercials though, as that steam has to be cgi.
Being able to use the front and back of the steamer is very nice. The two included covers arent enough, and I have to interrupt just to wash these pads. I will buy more.
There are none of the other bells and whistles. No corner head, no extra large head.. no magic purple duster. You will have to clean your corners the old way.
This is not a perfect product, but it'll do an okay job with little hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by azshopper80 Would Do An Infomercial!!!
I thought for a long time about getting one of these, but was resistant, having tried so many other "miracle" mops that didn't work. After reading reviews for this pocket steamer as well as the original, I chose this one because many reviews for the original said it stopped steaming after a few months. Whereas there were no such complaints about this pocket mop.
I have to say, i LOVE MY SHARK!!!! We have a baby and pets, so we are constantly cleaning. The shark gets used at least three times a week in my entire house, and the floor is actually clean. Plus no disgusting filthy mop water or sore back AND I can shark the whole house while holding a baby on one hip if I need to! Can't do that with a mop!! You just wash and reuse the cleaning pads (make sure never to bleach them!!) then get new cleaning pads every few months as they wear out.
I love it so much I really would do an infomercial for them, lol. At my recommendation, several friends and family members also have Pocket Mops of their own and they love them as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MPSAPBKM This product works well
I love the Shark mop. It makes my floors so clean and does not leave a sticky residue as my Swifter mop did. The only thing I find fault with is storing it. You can't stand it up, it has to hang and finding a heavy long hook to hang it is very hard. hardware stores do not sell these strong hooks anymore. Everything is plastic.. The handle is large so it needs a wide strong hook. But the mop itself is wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CleanKC Just what I was looking for.
I have a lot of laminate floors plus two dogs. I spend a lot of time cleaning the floors and wanted something to speed up the process. The Shark mop did the trick. Easy to use and has a long cord so I don't have to switch outlets very often. It uses distilled water so no special cleaning solutions are needed. It does leave a few streaks if I'm not careful but all in all, this was a good purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by busymom123 My favorite cleaning invention yet
I love my new Shark steam pocket mop!! I am a mom/wife that works full time and My house consists of laminate wood/tile and I don't always have time to give the floor a good scrub down. The steam pocket mop cleans better than I could ever clean on a tight schedule! It I love the fact that I don't use harsh chemicals that not only can be harmful to my daughter and pets, but leave streaks/residue, and leave that chemical smell. It took me a couple minutes to figure out how to get the mop to consistantly steam while I kept mopping but once I got the hang of it, it was SO easy to use! No streaks, dries SO quickly and leaves my floors shiny and clean!!! I would (and have!) reccommended this to all my friends/family.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Skeeter2 Greatest Purchase I Ever Made
It is easy to learn how to use it and quick. Takes very little time to get it ready to use.......put the cleaning head on.........fill the tank and in less than 30 seconds steam is coming out ready to use. Steam comes out on the top and bottom of the cleaning head which is reversable and you can use both sides. It uses tap water instead of distalled water. Gets along baseboards and corner with little or no effect. Floor dries in just a few minutes, there is no water spots left on the floor. Cleaning is quick and great, just take the cleaning pads and put into your washer and they come out looking like new. Takes very little space to store when not in us. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by smigin More than I could have hoped for.
I have purchased different types of floor cleaners i.e. mops, dusters, etc. This Steam Mop is awesome. I have a tile floor and it works perfect. It is ready to go in 30 seconds. I love, love this mop.
