2 years, still going strong and very impressed
Great machine that does an excellent job on my porcelain floors, leaving them shiny and glossy. I use the monster every week and it sure beats using the variety of mops I've tried over the years. My floors dry within seconds in warm weather, maybe a bit longer in colder weather. It's easy to manoeuvre. I've got 2 pads but generally only have to use one. If there's dirt stuck to the floor I usually give this spot a spray of metho before I start cleaning and by the time I get to this spot it's soaked and ready to come clean. Very happy with the monster.
Hate it. Doesn’t lift anything off the floor unless you go over literally 50+ times.
Cost $229. We have had it in total about 5 years but only use it every 2nd week. Alternate with a mop and bucket which is so much more efficient. To clean any mark off the floor I have literally gone over it back and forth about 50 times and in the end scrubbed it off. It was a bit of carott peel less than the size of a currant.
The most annoying thing about this mop is the lock which holds the extended handle in place. It comes undone every 2 mins & you spend more time fixing this than actually mopping. My mop is 6 mnths old & already in for repair bc it is steaming on & off - I am now without a mop for 2 weeks while Harvey Norman get it repaired. Frustrating!

I am very much satisfied with it . It got strong cleaning power and light in weight so easy to maneuver. I got 32,square house and I don't refill again, I use it only once. I don't replace the pads as well it's enough to clean with replacing but I clean every week. It drys very quickly and doesn't leave any spots
Made mopping so much easier
Well after reading the reviews on here I decided to buy it and love it well... as much as anyone who really hates housework could love a mop. I love being able to put the pads in the wash. the floor dries alot quicker than having to use a traditional mop.
GREAT MOP - HIGHLY RECOMMEND
I brought this mop after reading some of the reviews, I have quite a few very large areas of black timber floorboards and dark charcoal super shiny porcelain tiles. I could not find anything to clean them with that did not mark or show smears or dried water marks after cleaning. I thought this is expensive but given the area I need to cover I am almost looking at commercial equipment.
The unit heats up well gets hot pretty fast - you can fill with hot/warm water but if you are still busy cleaning just put in on 5 minutes before you need it....
Great value! i love my steam mop
Love the quick heating up, long usage with little water for cleaning (40min?), quick and easy to use, quick drying on floors, happy with the cleaning!
Improvements: the cord could be longer, its hard to get into small spaces because of the size of the head,
on a side note: the mop pads stops sticking after a couple of usages and curls up when moping (although have found a substitute product on ebay which is way better than the actual monster brand quality!)
If I could insert a photo I would. I clean all the time my tiles are a cream colour. After mopping if I use a magic eraser on the tile it get black dirt off. You think your tiles look clean but they are not. I think there has to be a betters way to clean floors if anyone has the answers let me know. I feel like I'm wasting my time using steam mops.
Great so far, just used it for first time
Just did me tiles in three rooms and hall, I did it very slowly over my large areas, i noticed it dried quickly, and tiles have some cracks it made them look less getting the grime out of smaller cracks, took marks off the edge next to walls (remember i did this very slow and spend alot of time, each time now will be general mop). had to refill alot but that is probably because of how much time i spent slowly. will try the carpet thingo another day. don't like the the refill part the hole is tiny but always had a hand towel with me to wipe any ...drips pouring, heated up in about 3 mins each time. I reviewed heaps of these mops and they all have pro's and con's.... so i will review again after i do carpet and floor a few more times. wish they had longer cords but none of them do for the size of my place. Oh had marks on tiles from the chairs, I wen't over it several times very slow and wow all gone! thought the marks were permanent! so far so good. wish they all came with bigger water tanks but they all seem to be standard in size. February 20th 2017 Update: ok as per previous review i have now tried it on the carpet Barely has any effect on the spot carpet stains (one of the reasons i picked this one) may sanitize carpet but against directions i took of the plastic frame and then the pad to try on older rug i didn't care about with a new cat puke mark, barely does anything. I have a carpet shampoo thing so not too worried just thought i could do spot stains after mopping all the tiles once a week..... nope not gonna happen.....so forget it on carpet for anything else than sanitizing.
Fanatastic mop. So easy to use and maintain. Streak free clean, no chemicals needed just pure steam. Been using it for now nearly 2 years. couple of improvements needed. There should be a better way to gauge the water level especially when we are filling it up. Second, the replacement microfibre pads should be a bit cheaper.
Other than that - it is too good.
Convenient and easy to use
Recently bought this steam cleaner to clean polished concrete floors, we have pets and 2 kids so the floors can get messy! The unit heats up quickly and is convenient to use, however the water runs out pretty fast and you need to wait for it to cool down before refilling. The steam jet on the front is OK, but doesn't really add that much more cleaning power... It leaves a good finish on the floors, and they don't too get wet and dry quick. It hasn't replaced our normal mop and bucket, but is a great for doing a quick job and leaves a streak fre...e hygienic result. The pads wash easy in the washing machine, and are wearing well so far. The extra plastic attachment for adding to the pad when cleaning carpet works well and ensures it 'glides' reasonably well on the carpet surface. I have only used on carpets to freshen them up, or to steam a small area for spills that need to be sanitised.
Pretty good so far ................
We have just purchased this mop and used it about five times. We replaced our old mop from Aldi which sprayed water everywhere. This mop is very sturdy and well made. You can feel the quality when you use it. It is easy to move around our floors (tiled and timber) particularly when the pad is wet.
Pros - good quality, I believe the tank is stainless steel and the stopper to the tank looks like it is brass. You bend the handle towards you for steam and when the handle is brought upright again the steam stops. There is also a landing pad...for you to use when not mopping. Cons - smallish water tank 600ml. There is no water indicator so when the steam stops it is time to fill up the tank. You cannot do this straight away though you have to leave the water tank to cool a little. Water container is 200ml so you have to use three times, it would have been better for them to provide a 600 ml container. Apart from the above Cons, it cleans our floors very well indeed. There are two steam boosters on the side which you can aim towards stubborn marks. However for the Cons I have deducted one star, otherwise it would have been 5!
Not worth the money, after 6 months ready for the bin
I had the older model for many years, and had no problems with it,, so when it started to leak at the hose i replaced it with the newer model. Within days of getting it the catch to lock in the poles broke, then the wheel kept coming off. today it had a flare up and now completely ruined, within a year of purchasing it I now have no steam cleaner. Not worth the money.
Great mop but poorly made.
The mop cleans well but the catch to lock in the pole when extended keeps coming undone so the pole keeps shortening during use which is highly annoying. I would probably buy a better known brand next time around. The water reservoir always bubbles over when filling even when the tank is not full.
Terrible! Hard work
Doesn't produce enough steam which makes it a tough work out to push around. Takes multiple attempts to remove simple water and dog paw prints. It's like pushing a broom through mud trying to get it around a small kitchen and living area. Wish I hadn't brought it. Got it to replaced a a Shark which was far easier to move around tiled floors.
Do not waste money on this mop!
Does exactly what is says. Cleans hard floors. I use it on our living/dining/kitchen and it works just fine. Very easy to use. Leaves no residue or streaking. Floors are like new. Really cannot fault it. As a bonus it freshens up our rugs too. One tank does the whole floor and the cord is long enough to reach everywhere.
What a great run we had with this model.
Our great run of some five years of fairly constant use ended abruptly with an electrical short in the cord right near my hand!! Thank goodness for circuit breakers! I must say that the response I received from Denise at the 1800 number was professional and empathetic - as a result, we have now purchased a refurbished EZ1R. Thank you Denise you are a valuable point of contact for your company.
After doing my research I decided on this mop high certainly wasn't the cheapest. I am very happy with the results when using on both my high gloss tiles and polished wooded floor. No streaks or wet patches. I have used it on the carpet which certainly looks fresher. So far I have only used it about five times and have not run out of water yet. Pads are easy to take on and off, as yet I have not washed them. I only have one tiny complaint about the design in that the power cord exits the machine very low down and I constantly stand on it,...this has been solved by not fully unwinding the cord. Easy to move over the floor, it just flies over carpets!!! Stands by itself in the corner when not in use. A good purchase which I would recommenD.
Love this steam mop and thought i was going to need to replace it when the filler plug would no longer tighten. Decided to try the support line, no questions asked a new filler plug was mailed overnight and solved our problem. Wow what more could you ask for ?
Does its job.
It definitely does its job. I found it easy to move not heavy or bulky as some have said. It does not have the same scrub power as a mop so any dry bits of food (for me tonight it was tomato seeds juice) need to be removed by hand and if it does unstick it, it will just move ot around the floor. It is simply for going over your floors when they have minimal mess and cleaning as soon as mess is made (as a mother this isnt always possible). If I didn't have a toddler constantly running mess around the house it would be fine!

Questions & Answers
How does it do on carpets?
our floor steamer (steam mop) is designed to wash sealed hard floor surfaces. The EZ1R replaces the mop and bucket and floor detergents when cleaning the floor. Steam mops are not designed to clean carpets, despite the fact that for many years people have referred to carpet cleaning as "having their carpets steam cleaned". Carpet cleaning uses an extraction method, whereby shampoo and water is injected into the carpet and then the excess water and dirt is extracted by a vacuum pump. There are dedicated carpet shampooers/cleaners to wash your carpets at home (eg Bissell has a great range of carpet cleaners.)
If your looking to clean your tiles , wooden floors or floor boards without the chore that mops and buckets use then the EZ1 Vapour floor steamer by Euroflex is great for that purpose. Having said that the EZ1 does come with a bonus carpet glider that attaches to the base of the floor steamer, but only to refresh carpets/rugs and to help kill dust mites for those with Asthma or other respiratory issues.
I hope that helps.
I love my steam mop but have not tried it on carpet. Does it remove stains? Can I use carpet shampoo in it?
Hi Susie T. Our Floor Steam Cleaner (steam mop) replaces mops, buckets and floor detergents , therefore the steam mop is used to clean sealed hard surface floors only. It is not intended to be used as a carpet shampooer. This is the case for all steam mops , they are not carpet cleaners. There are other products in the market that are dedicated for carpet cleaning/shampooing, but the steam mop is generally only used for hard surface cleaning in place of mops and buckets. The dedicated carpet cleaners do use shampoo because a detergent is needed when cleaning fibres (such as carpets), without a detergent, carpets will generally not come clean. For your convenience , here is a link to a brand that makes great carpet shampooers (I'm told) and can be found in most electric appliance retailers.
There is a bonus carpet sledge that comes with our steam mop that you can clip on to the bottom of steam mop but it is more to refresh carpet fibres and to help kill dust mites for those with asthma issues.
Only tap water should be used in the boiler of our steam mop, anything else introduced in the boiler will damage the product and will void the warranty.
I hope this helps, for any further questions you can contact our Customer Service Line on 1800 663 866. For future reference this number is found on the silver sticker on top of our steam mop. Happy steaming!!
I purchased the Euroflex Monster EZ1 Floor steamer yesterday from the Good Guys but when i used it for the first time, the whole floor was wet. I thought it dries up quicker? Is there something i am doing wrong?
I put floor cleaner as well as water... is that the reason why? Please help
As per the instructions and the bright yellow warning label on the boiler cap, only water is meant to go into the boiler opening where the water is inserted. No detergents, chemicals, oils, vinegars etc are meant to go into the boiler...only tap water. Using steam is about chemical free cleaning to avoid chemical residues and streaking on your floors.
You may need to flush the boiler a few times to remove any traces of the floor cleaner left in the boiler. Put about 300-400ml of water in the boiler and then tip upside down to remove the water from the boiler. Repeat about 3 times. Also the blue microfibre pads will need to be washed before the next use to remove the floor cleaner detergent. This should remove the floor cleaner solution from the boiler and floor pads.
When filling use 600ml of water with each refill, never more and this will ensure only a light film of moisture is left on the floors for quick drying. The instruction manual will provide further information on filling and refilling (while not over-filling) for the best results.
