Pros Very good cleaning performance, Hands-free cleaning pad changing, lots of attachments for various cleaning tasksPowerful, maneuverable, great scrubbing brush, reasonably pricedVery good cleaning performance, hands-free pad changingRelatively inexpensive, acceptable cleaning performanceDecent cleaning performance
Cons ExpensiveNo hands-free cleaning pad changing, few accesorriesSomewhat expensive, no scrubbing brushProne to falling over, not as robustly constructed as other modelsHard to fill water tank, poor steam distribution
Bottom Line The best option we've found for cleaning big messes over large areasThe best choice for all but those that want to steam clean more than just floors, and thus want lots of attachementsA decent deal for those that need hands-free pad changing, otherwise there are better options availableWhile the low price tag is appealing, spending just a little more brings much better performanceThe most reasonably-priced option we've found for disinfecting your floors with steam
