Conair Extreme Steam Reviews
#3 Conair Professional Upright Steamer
Not all full-size fabric steamers are the same. Some of them produce extremely hot steam, and others don’t get very hot at all. This particular steamer from Conair is definitely a model that belongs in the former category. Using what it calls Dual Heating Technology, this machine can produce extremely hot steam that does a better job at pulling wrinkles out of fabrics than many of the steamers manufactured by other companies. This 1,800-Watt unit not only heats up water in the base of the unit to make steam, but it then heats the steam up further in the handle, so the user gets the hottest steam they can possibly get. This means that it’s 40% hotter than comparable full-size models, and that results in it going through fabric three times faster than other garment steamers.
It not only has the ability to take wrinkles out of fabrics and to smooth out garments, but it’s also powerful enough to eliminate some of the more common household pests that people have to deal with—namely, bed bugs and dust mites. This product’s super hot steam will not only kill these critters dead but will also eliminate their eggs as well. And since it doesn’t use harsh chemicals to kill these pests, it means that it’s all natural and is a safer pest solution. Since this unit produces steam that’s extremely hot, Conair has also placed a few safety features into this unit to make it safer to use including a cool-touch T-nozzle with aluminum face-plate and a cool-touch insulated hose. It also has a large water tank and a telescoping garment pole for convenience.
#2 Conair GS23-C Hand Held Fabric Steamer
Although this product looks somewhat like a hair dryer, in reality, it’s a powerful and compact steamer that can be used for all kinds of different jobs. It has a 1,110-Watt Dual Heating System that can rise to steam temperature in under 2-minutes and can provide up to 15-minutes of steam. And users can select just how hot they want this steam to be because it has different heat settings. It has a low setting that can be used for delicate fabrics and it has a high-heat setting that can be used for tough wrinkles. Its high-heat feature is not only hot but it’s super hot. Which just means that it can not only relax wrinkles and smooth garments out but can be used to kill household pests such as dust mites and bed bugs. This super high steam also penetrates fabrics faster, so it can release the wrinkles a whole lot quicker than conventional steam models.
This unit isn’t just about power, however. It’s also about functionality and convenience. It comes with three great attachments which allow it to do a lot more than just kill bed bugs or pull out wrinkles. It has a fabric brush so that the unit can be used to refresh your sofa, couch or recliner. It also has a soft cushion brush for smoothing fabrics out and a creaser for putting a nice, sharp crease into dress shirts. It also has an extremely long 9-foot long cord that allows it to be used easily. And since this product is only about the size of a hairdryer, it can easily be packed into luggage.
#1 Conair Extreme Turbo Steam (GS76RGD)
This Conair steamer has many of the features that people look for in a steamer. It has a 7.3-ounce water tank that heats up in under 60-seconds and can provide up to 15-minutes of continuous steam. Since it’s a 1,550-Watt steamer, it can create steam that’s considerably hotter than some of the comparable portable models out there. In fact, it’s up to 50% hotter than most handheld steamers, and this results in better results when used to pull wrinkles out of fabrics or for fabric softening. It’s a well-designed product that’s easier to use than most other units as well. Simply fill it with distilled water, plug it in and let it heat up. You are then ready to use it’s incredibly hot steam spray for all kinds of different jobs including killing dust mites or pulling wrinkles out of your clothing.
This unit also has an aluminum plate that allows it to be used instead of an iron. Other accessories that come with this product include a built-in creaser for creating super sharp creases and a silicone band that pulls the fabric taut and makes it easier to steam it. It has a see-through water reservoir that lets you know how much water is left in the unit and it’s lighted switch and Turbo light make it easy to see when the steamer is one and when it has reached temperature. And since it also comes with a bristle brush, it can be used to loosen up fibers so that the steam can reach deeper.
One Last Word
The products in this Conair line of steamers are all pretty good garment and fabric steamers, as can be clearly seen from the above reviews. All that really separates them is that they are each built for a slightly different purpose or are built for handling fabrics in a slightly different way. Which leaves the user with the difficult choice of choosing just one of them.
