OK when new, but spits brown, rusty stains when old
Borrowed a friends SwiftSteam KSS20 and whilst it worked as expected when the steam was clean (as it always should be) sometimes it would spit out yucky brown water which I needed to be constantly on the look out for, as then I could rinse under warm water to get it out. Sort of defeats the purpose of a quick iron. I assume there must've been some internal aging just behind the stainless steel plate which would collect rusty steam on the way from the reservoir to the steam holes.
I’ve had this steamer for about 5 years and it works brilliantly, highly recommend. I use it daily for work tops in lightweight silky fabrics, and also for lightweight women’s viscose/elastane t-shirts. On these fabrics it works really well, quick to remove creases and no damage to the delicate fabrics. I have never attempted to use it on men’s dress shirts or cotton t-shirts, and I don’t think it would be very effective on these. It’s quick to heat up and the water tank is big enough to do quite a few tops before refillling. Great device, and I love that it was inexpensive and is compact, so much easier to store than the larger type of steamers.
Purchased in June 2014.

Compact and easy to use.
Picked this up to steam work blouses on occasion and it has been a real time saver in the mornings (I'm someone who haaaates ironing!) It won't help badly creased items and you'll need to pull out the iron, but for one or two items it's quick and easy to heat up, and I don't notice the water marks pooling on clothes like I have with previous steamers. Definitely a budget-friendly option, but for those of us who don't need to use it every day you can't go wrong.
Best Little Gadget
This is a great little gadget, so handy for last minute ironing jobs when you're in a hurry. Light & easy to use, I take it with me to hotels and special events. Not sure it could replace an iron entirely, but for the money, it's value personified. Pleasantly surprised by this purchase :)
Possibly the cheapest one of its type, it performs most adequately. For less than $40 (on special at Big W) you can't go wrong with this handy little gem. Lightweight, effective and does the job without fuss. Now use it more than a cumbersome iron and ironing board. Perfect when space is at a premium. Thinking of taking it travelling too.
Certainly did the job!
Did a better job than I expected. Washed my vertical blinds but they dried with lots of creases.
This machine did a great job of pressing them to a professional standard with minimal effort.
Have not tried clothing yet but confident the reslts will be very good.
Water lasted longer than I expected, easy of use and end result for the small price for this unit was very pleasing.
Nice and light, easy to use
Purchased this garment steamer as few weeks ago from Big W. It's light and easy to use. Great for silk and other delicate fabrics that you may be concerned with accidentally burning when using an iron (even on the coolest settings). I don't recommend this for heavier fabrics such as cotton as it's quicker to iron these. All in, a good purchase. Bonus is that it's small and easy to store.

Handy and simple garment steamer - value for money
My wife and I are very much satisfied with the performance of the Kambrook SwiftSteam KSS20. It's very easy to use and does the job. It's suitable for light- to medium-duty home use. Well priced and very affordable. Efficient at removing those unwanted garment creases and works well on delicate as well as thick fabrics.
Fantastic hand held garment steamer
I have been using Garmant steamers for years usually on the stand type and this is by far the best and does just as good a job if not better.
Easy to store as it doesn't take up much room. E as sy to take when traveling too. Very pleased with my purchase.
Handy Little Steamer
This is a handy little steamer, works well for what it costs. Dont expect super powerful steam unless you're looking to fork out hundreds for a professional steamer, but this packs just enough punch. A bit like the 'power steam' function on your iron, but consistent. Good size, a little annoying being plugged in with limited cable, but extension cord works fine.
Great for the price.
Thought I’d give this a go as if always wanted a garment steamer but never could bring myself to commit to investing in one.
So far I’ve tried this out on a few cotton shirts, dresses, and a couple of blazers. It worked better than expected!
It’s a bit awkward to try and pull the item straight/taut while steaming at the same time, however I’m really happy with this as it makes it easy to get creases out of items that would normally be difficult to iron (such as ruffled dresses with lots of panels, jackets, etc).
I don’t think it would replace my traditional iron but I think I’ll get plenty of use out of this steamer.
Very Efficient Steamer
I decided to buy the Kambrook SwiftSteam KSS20 to take on a cruise as the ship had EU 220-230v outlets in the cabin and I had the appropriate plug adaptor to use with it, but out of curiosity I did try it with a US adaptor in the 110v outlet to see what result I would get, but of course the voltage was too low to allow any steaming at all.
I was very happy with the Kambrook SwiftSteam KSS20. The design of the steamer and trigger made it very easy to hold and use. The water tank was easy to remove and replace and it didn’t make the steamer heav...
Good for smaller apartments/spaces since it takes up very little room. It's not however sure quite as strong as a full sized steamer. It works with most of my work tops as they tend to be quite thin however struggles with thicker fabrics. Overall it's a good buy for its price!
Handy device to keep in the bedroom or bathroom.
This is a great gadget for getting the creases out of your clothes. Wish I had known about these years ago. So much easier than going down to the laundry and getting out the ironing board. Easy to use & it really works. You can do about four garments before you need to refill the water so not really designed for doing loads of ironing. More for sprucing up items from your wardrobe before you wear them.
Works well for such a small device.
Steamed my work shirts a couple of times and so for so good. The tank capacity is sufficient for the amount of water used to steam garments. Still a bit of a hassle to set up but definitely does the job given its size & price difference to other steam stations.
Perfect little steamer
I sell clothes on line and this is the perfect item to get them ready for the photo session. Irons out all of the unsightly creases so the clothing item looks like it has been freshly ironed. Definitely recommend this great little appliance and doesn't take up a lot of storage.
This is brilliant - convenient and easy to use
This product is the best garment steamer. As it is hand held and there is no base unit, I am able to hang my clothing on the back of the door at a more convenient (higher) level to steam them. Much better when dealing with dresses and pants.
The water level is easy to see, and there are no delays or shots of steam as experienced when using the garment steamer stands.
Lightweight and powerful, definitely recommend this appliance.

Questions & Answers
I’ve only used my swiftsteam max 10 times and now it hardly gives off any steam and therefore no heat on clothes. Any suggestions to rectify this?
How well will this work with blockout curtains? They’re brand new and so mainly for folding creases...
Hi. I loved the idea of a handheld steamer so I purchased it straight away. It worked once after initially filling it and plugging it in but never worked again (followed all the right steps). I then took it back and exchanged it yesterday and again not working straight out of the box. Tried multiple power points I know work, followed the steps. It seems like this is one of those gimmicks where it works a couple of times and then yiu just give up and put it in the cupboard. Am I missing something?
