This is a perfect Product for Performing Steam Cleaning
I fill once but i am doing tiles and the floor is dry after cleaning. Since its a new one i dont have to replace the pad and the only negative is if the cord length is atleast 2 metres you know it gives the extra feasibility instead of connecting through extensions.

Leaks a lot of water from the cleaning head and leaves everything sopping wet
From the very first use the cleaner has dripped a lot of water from the cleaning head regardless of which attachment is being used. We've tried adjusting the steam output level. We have to go round with a towel to mop up the excess water, its very inconsistent.
We are careful not to overfill the unit and to leave to heat up properly. We used other steam mods and not had this issue. We purchased it from Bunnings warehouse less than 2 months ago.
Really not happy with the product at all.

Great for cleaning tile grout and bathroom windows
It takes some getting used to but worked well. A very flexible little machine. I used the three combinations nozzle and interchange them frequently to clean my bathrooms and kitchen. To avoid too much wetness I let the first spray without the fabric.
Happy that I decided to buy this machine and do the cleaning by myself. Got my end of lease clean for my apartment done in 6 hours.

SC3 Steam Cleaner
I wouldn't recommend this product It leaves the floors very wet so that water stains are left behind on the tiles. The cord is very short and the machine easily tips over spilling water onto the floor. Support is unavailable - seeking help directly from the Karcher store who didn't know how to help and the online support who replied to my request with "Please note we are currently experiencing high volumes of enquiries" and so I haven't heard back in over a week.

Cleans walls, skirtings, doors so well!
A great little unit. Compact, easy to use, cleans marks, mirrors, and difficult stains. I use it to clean glass, bathroom, kitchen, remove pet marks on walls and doors (blind dog) and it saves my arms from aching. Highly recommended.

Clean with mean steam!
Don't be intimidated by hot steam. This machine is a breeze to use. It's small compact, light and portable. You can not exceed 1 litre of water into the tank, that lasts for up to an hour of continuous usage. It has a descaling unit included that ensures the machine doesn't clog with calcium scales. Absolutely no exertion. Dust, grime and grease just melts off. No need for chemicals and everything smells fresh and sanitised afterwards. Long extension mop pole means no bending. Strong plastic lightweight construction that pulls apart easily for ...storage into slots included in the body of the machine making the unit easy to store. I probably would like a longer electrical cord however there is no provision for cord retraction into the body of the machine, so you need to fold it and tuck it under the handle. That's okay no problem. It comes with little thingy attachments to do detail bits and bobs and also a cover plate for the mop head if you need to do carpets. And the actual cleaning pads themselves are synthetic and hairy meaning it picks up dirt and they are easy to wash. The floor pad has this thing that sticks out for you to step on for removal without needing to bend down while the pad is hot. Safe efficient no fuss cleaning that makes you feel thoroughly clean. Tried a few different brands but it's best to pay more for a better product that's going to last longer. The descaling unit is an excellent inclusion that ensure a consistent flow of steam. I'm a happy fussy cleaner. No probs.

Nothing but troubles
Inconsistent steam, water leaking from main body and attachment head, and to top it all off, the cheap plastic head snapped clean off this morning. Cheap product, expensive brand name.

Better Than I Thought Exceeded Expectations
Bought from Bunnings.
Easy to use.
Cleaning has become almost fun.
Takes a bit of getting used to & beware of hot liquid!
Once you have mastered this machine, you will NOT look back.
Does the shower, sink, toilet seat, actually the entire bathroom, wall to wall, tile to tile, spotlessly clean.
A bit strange at first as it gets quite wet but you just follow with a wipe down with a clean microfiber cloth.
Even disgusting, never touched before insect screens are done beautifully.
BUT must vacuum & get as much dust off it as you can.
Does the kitchen floors, laminate cupboards, splash back even the dog's dirty toys........

powerful steam cleaner
I bought this in Oct 2019 from Bunnings, so only 2 months old. not sure why the karcher SC3 in product review is being shown as discontinued.
It has 3.5 bars of max steam pressure, its a 1900w machine.
I have used it only as a handheld steamer . I have had 2 combination floor/handheld steamers (very good brands) before but this is so much easier to use and much more powerful.
No more trying to get into corners with old tooth brushes and bamboo skewers. The hand held steamer using the small brush nozzle just shoots out the dirt . I used it on...

Questions & Answers
how come five stars when re iewswerenegative
Not sure why the karcher SC3 has got some poor reviews. However this is the Karcher SC3 Easy Fix premium. So far , after 5 months of use, maybe I use it fortnightly, I still find it fantastic.
My only criticism is that they don't get give you enough terry toweling covers for the wide brush nozzle and they only give you one floor cloth. However I bought more terry toweling covers from ebay. Once I start cleaning my stove top and back off the stove top,, it absorbs the dirt and makes the cloth very dirty and oily, it is just not worth starting any cleaning jobs without extra terry toweling covers.
As you start it off, it does hiss and just spurt a bit of water out for a couple of seconds before starting a pretty powerful steam. I just hold it over the sink and then when it starts steaming I use it to clean. This has happened with my two previous steamers as well, so I would say that this is pretty normal.
thanks. with my floor steamer i wash the floor first then pass the steamer...the towel turns black..must change it and finish... but floor shines later. but i neef one for all the house. thought this is perfect. thanks agsin
