Best Garment Steamers

A garment steamer, also called a clothes or iron steamer, is designed to remove wrinkles from clothes without applying any pressure to the fabric.

Garment steamers work by heating up water in a small tank, which turns into hot steam that smoothes creases. You don’t even have to put the steamer directly on clothes - just hang the garment up and hold the steamer a short distance away. Continue Reading...

Hard to hang clothes on, leave wet spotsThis steamer is hard to hang clothes on for steaming and leaves wet spots on our clothing. Would not recommended, an iron and Ironing board takes half the time with much better results. Show details

I wouldn’t recommendGreat for delicate fabrics but not business shirts or pants. Takes some practise to master it. After 2-3 years began tripping the circuit breaker, which is very frustrating and now unusable. UPDATE: Issue was resolved swiftly and efficiently by Sunbeam. Cannot fault their customer service! Show details

Don’t waste your moneyHard to understand how to regulate the steam. Water dribbles out randomly.
Brown stains, coming out onto my white clean laundry. Only had this item for two months. Hardly use it and supplier suggests descaling. Most expensive steam iron I’ve bought and the worst. Show details

No worth the moneyI used mine for about 18 months before it started blowing the power. Took it in for repair told nothing wrong with it. So had an electrician look at it and it had been leaking water and was corroded inside. I ended up throwing it out. My sister also has one and it blows their power too. Waste of money Show details

Quick and easyThis little handheld steamer saves lots of time from ironing. Heats up quickly and comes with a fabric attachment if necessary. Love the fact I don’t have to use an ironing board and is great on school uniforms and work uniforms. Easy to store as it is foldable. Show details

I should have bought a long time agoI bought the Propress MINI steamer and it's brilliant. I want to see if it was better than our iron (as the website claims it is) and sure enough it is! It's much quicker to use and removes odours if clothes are only lightly used. Great!

Great product for the moneyThis steamer has me a little obsessed. So far I have ditched my iron, freshened fabric furniture and even my carpets.
Although a little plasticy, it's light, easy to use and so far proven great value for the money

It’s a safety hazard! Tripping the powerThis unit only lasted as long as the warranty (2 years), as it’s now tripping my power. But given it’s out the warranty, it is not economical to repair. It appears it’s a known issue to some of Philips garment steamers, now I know never buy again this brand steamers. Disappointed to see Philips product only last this long. Show details

Does not get wrinkles out of cottonI was so frustrated when I used this iron! Even on the highest setting, the iron simply didn't get hot enough to make a difference for my cotton pillow cases.
I'm back to my own brand, which has never let me down.

Benefits of garment steamers

  • Garment steamers are much gentler on delicate clothes than an iron, which can snag or burn items such as suits, dresses and silk blouses
  • They can save you time and space, as you don’t have to unpack or store a bulky ironing board
  • Portability is a plus, as handheld or portable steamers are lightweight and easy to pack into a suitcase if you travel frequently
  • A garment steamer can be used for a variety of purposes. You can also use it on linen, curtains and soft furnishings like tablecloths and bed sheets. Some people even attest to using them on sofa or car upholstery.

Does a garment steamer replace an iron?

Unfortunately, a garment steamer probably won’t be able to replace your iron completely.

  • While a garment steamer is more suited to smoothing out delicate fabrics, an iron is better than a garment steamer for natural or predominantly natural fabrics such as cotton, wool and denim.
  • Irons are also generally better for the task if you want to remove wrinkles from a large pile of clothes, as they often have a longer battery life.
  • If you want to wear an outfit straight after smoothing out creases, an iron is a better choice. Garment steamers can sometimes leave damp spots on clothes – not exactly the chic look you're going for with your silk shirt.

Investing in a garment steamer with variable steam control may help you avoid this moisture, as you can adjust the amount of steam. There are plenty of other handy features that garment steamers have. You can find out more about them by experimenting with the filters on the left-hand side of the page below.
