Best steam cleaners: Reviews, comparison and promo 2020
In order to make your cleaning more pleasant, know that technology is at your disposal. In fact, many household appliances intended for cleaning have been made available to customers, in particular by the leadership of brands such as Polti or Karcher. But it is not always easy to know which to choose – also we offer you our own 2020 comparison of the best steam cleaners of the moment!
It is undoubtedly on the high-end that Kärcher puts with this device … and it does it wonderfully! The machine has a phenomenal power of 2200W and a maximum pressure set at 4.2 bars, offering a maximum steam flow of 150g per minute. Note that the machine comes with the innovation VapoHydro, which combines water and steam to give a flow rate of 250g / min, ideal for the most dirty areas. We also appreciate its practical features, like a 0.5L tank lined with a removable 1.5L tank, as well as its shortest heating time, 3 minutes!
WHAT DO CONSUMERS SAY?
On the question of performance, consumers agree to recognize it with incredible virtues, the VapoHydro function forcing the respect of users due to its efficiency. They also appreciate that the machine can be used on all types of hard floors, from tiling to lino, to PVC, even passing – yes – through the floor! However, it is on the issue of price that consumers appear more divided. They say here that it would have been nice if at this price, Kärcher did not put as much on plastic and provided some accessories.
Its heating time of only 3 minutes
The VapoHydro function, a unique innovation
Its power of 2200W
High max steam flow
No cable reel: a subscriber absent from Kärcher?
Certainly the best at this level of range! The only downside: the price, well above what the competition in the lower ranges does (all things considered). It remains that this is the only shark rotator professional manual in our comparison to include the VapoHydro functionality, an innovation of the manufacturer on this model specifically. If you have the right budget, we can only recommend it!
THE KÄRCHER FC 5, FOR DRYING TIME, CONVENIENCE AND 2-IN-1
Let’s stay with the timeless manufacturer, but let’s now move on to a model whose practicality and versatility are unequaled in this comparison, simply because it cleans with steam … and sucks! So you’re wasting far less time cleaning, since you can use one machine. To do its job, it has 460W of power and a 400ml fresh water tank (in addition to a tank for dirty water, with a volume of 200ml). Thanks to this system, it systematically cleans with clean water and promises you a dry floor in about 2 minutes.
WHAT DO CONSUMERS SAY?
Consumers appear satisfied with the model’s competitive offer, with more than 70% of customers giving a score equivalent to or higher than 4/5 on the associated purchasing platform. They are therefore very enthusiastic, especially regarding the 2-in-1 and the reduced drying time, offering real practicality. At the same time, they indicate that the vacuum cleaner is not acting like a “real” vacuum cleaner, in the sense that it will not be suitable for stones and other important debris, but will be more suitable for dust.
Cleans and sucks: 2-in-1 at the top of practicality
For all types of hard floors, drying in about 2 minutes
Its intelligent cleaning with clean water with recovery of dirty water
Easy to use and ergonomic
Few accessories included (other than microfiber, detergent …)
The vacuum cleaner is more support, rather for dust
As long as the suction function is considered more as a backup, this model proves to be most attractive. It obviously wins in practicality, being as easy to use as it is versatile, but also in design. Its double tank allows it to systematically clean your floor with clean water – good news! Our only complaint: Kärcher again sets the prices relatively high, so it is a shame that the accessories are sold separately and not included.
