First steamer I’ve tried, and it definitely takes some getting used to, as far as switching from using an iron to steamer. Overall I would say it was definitely affordable and works really well, with certain fabrics, with others it is a little bit more difficult. My main issue with this particular design is where the cord retraction button is. A lot of times when I am using the steamer I will switch hands and I have noticed that when I use my right hand, it kind of floats down toward the end of the handle and without warning I have pushed the cord traction button multiple times which first off yanks the cord out of the plug on the wall and is just very startling. Not a very good regarding safety. Otherwise, I️ love this steamer.
