  • Foot-operated on/off switch is very easy to use.

How we test

Overall score:

  • Performance - 70 percent
  • Ease of use - 30 percent

Performance indicates how well each model removed creases on synthetic organza, silk, wool, cotton, denim, linen, a polycotton shirt, 2 dresses (polyester/viscose and polyester) and 2 curtains (cotton and polycotton).

Ease of use covers filling the water tank, handle comfort, moving the garment steamer, steam and spray, adjusting the temperature, and cord convenience.
