Overall score includes:
Stain removal (50%)
We assessed stain removal using a large sheet of vinyl with everyday stains like coffee, mustard, red wine, shoe polish, and soy and tomato sauces. We left these stains to dry overnight and then attempted to clean them with the steam mops.
Ease of use (30%)
Includes ease of filling, mop head movement, control use and mop pad attachment.
Floor wetness (20%)
How good the mop is at drying the floor. A score of 5.0 or less means there was enough water left to cause a slipping hazard.
Hand-held mode does not contribute to overall score.
Carpet attachment was not tested.
Prices are from a October 2018 survey.

Worked well for just over a year.
The green light that shows when it's up to temperature and ready to use now only stays on for about a minute of steaming. When it goes off you have to stop steaming and wait 5 minutes for it to get back to temp - so it makes the job take a lot longer that it should. Also annoying that you can't tell how much water is in the tank and whether it needs refilling.
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
