Just a dangerous toy
Pretty useless bit of thing. Run out of steam quickly and not that hot. Takes longer to heat up. Not even enough to clean a cook top. It is not cordless so you have a long tail to look after. Silly.
September 6th 2019 Update:
A small but heavy little jug. I thought it was pretty well made. But then I found it not holding too much water. The steam was really not that hot and it ran out of steam rapidly. Having the power cable attached to it is cumbersome and not practical. Refilled it twice and I lost interest in it. Total waste of money
Steam not coming out, crap machine
Stopped working properly after 2 months use, cleaned all the tank with white vinegar, kept it always clean but now stops working after 30 secs. complete garbage, do not put your money on it, otherwise you gonna regret wasting your time and effort on this trash, plus no support from manufacturer
T.V.S.N. let down
No five star rating here . Bought from TVSN, After a couple of uses. steam oozes out of the machine but not the nozzle. completely useless. It's in the garbage Best place for it. Shame about the couple of hundred plus I spent to buy it. This steam cleaner appears to be the worst available. I would not recommend wasting your money buying this product
Bought this from Ideal world a couple of years back. I used it only once, it was perfect just what I wanted. I live alone so didn't need to use it so much. I tried to use again a couple of time everything was the same. I like to steam all my heavy curtains at least 4 time a year, except the steam was not hot just warm, enough for me to put my hand in. I couldn't have done that the first couple of times. I used it as it was really hot and cleaned great. Ideal world did not want to know about my problem as was passed the 14 day or return policy. They couldn't even give me ph number or e-mail address of someone who could so left with a £50 machine that does not work. Would not recommend this item.
It only worked 3 times and hasn't worked since cannot get on to anybody about this problem
I'm throwing mine out a waste of money customer service is a waste of time they don't help. I have since bought a handheld one a quarter of the price and it a least works. I would never recommend this product to anybody When it was demonstrated on tv it looked good but nothing is good if it only works 3 times

Little Yellow Door Stop!!!
Hello there, Sad to see all the bad reviews because mine was great it cleaned well, I thought this is a good product... Haha... I should have known that it was too good to be true....
IT stopped working after 30 minutes, first time, Didn't even get to finish cleaning the bathroom!!!
Absolute waste of money
Purchased 28/11/13 has never worked at all, heats up but no steam when trigger is operated, tried to send it back with no luck. Tried calling customer services but they were very unhelpful. So decided to put down to bad experience and save on frustration. Still got steamer husband decided to have another attempt today, but still no steam when trigger is pulled. Wish we had never heard of little yellow would not recommend.
Little yellow steam cleaner
Well after thinking the little yellow had given up and not will to just throw it out I manage to find out the problem was the hose ,it had a kink sometimes and it was that that stop stopped the steam from come out .I pulled the hose not to much cause it come out of the black tube and you find a white one that is the steam hose keep that kink free and you have a Little yellow that is working great again .Think it a manufacturer s fault as the older one was never like it .Hope that helps good luck steaming your way to happiness . Bill
I find it great to clean with when it was working.
I've use it three times and now no steam is coming through the hose, i can hear the water heating up but thats all. There dose not seem to be any customer service. Does any one else have this problem?
Don't bother. We used it twice and it died. Nothing worked so got a refund for the supplier...
From the hassle we went through to buy it and then send it back, then have to look around and purchase a different steam cleaner I would have scored this less than one star.
Only lasted 4 cleans
I had a steamer just like this one in blue and lasted 10 years + using tap water & cleaning it out the same way as the little yellow one. This one however only lasted 18 months & used 6 times. I have only just come across this site & would have informed people that this machine is great in the beginning but doesn't last I suppose you get what you pay for.
Little yellow steam cleaner
The cleaning power was great.
Only used it a few times in house and car, was great and fast.
For some reason it just stoped will not make steam had the older type for years before it stoped working newer one only since November not used that much. Not very good.
It was very good while it was working
The cleaning power was satisfying. It was light to carry and very easy to use. I loved it.
But one day within 15 times of using it, it died. :-/
Parts of it breake easily so you must be very gentle when you use it.
So I expected at least 3 years life but it only had one year life. My sister in law's lasted less than 3 months. It died too.
The manufacturers must work on the life expectancy of this machine
Similar issues to last reviewer. Stopped producing steam. Only used twice. No one seems to know how to fix it. No access to see if anything wrong inside. No one interested - after sales shocking!
Seems to overheat very easily and need to wait ages for the valve to cool down to refill or empty.
Good - But You Must Wear Gloves & Hearing Protection When Using in Confined Spaces
I have had my Little Yello Steamer for about 5 years & haven't had any major problems with it. Unlike some steam cleaners I've seen on the market, the feature I like most about the Little Yello Steamer is that it has a locking mechanism on the trigger handle. This is good because it prevents your fingers from getting sore after holding the trigger continuously after a prolonged period. Without it, after a while I am quite sure your hand would get very achy & sore. However, I highly recommend that you must wear rubber gloves or else you may get ...a steam burn (if not careful). Also, I highly recommend the use of hearing protection in confined spaces (e.g: shower recess) as the sound of the steam gushing from the unit can be quite deafening. Another feature that I also think is worth mentioning is the fact that a tank of water will last much longer than other steam cleaners (at least an hour) before having to refill it. The thing I dislike about it is that one has to stop & wait for the red light to go out before recommencing steam cleaning. This can be quite time consuming, especially if you are either in a hurry to get your cleaning done or have a lot of large dirty areas to do, such as tiled floors. I haven't used it for cleaning shower recess glass so I can't really comment on how good it works at removing soap scum or not. This is a great budget cleaner so I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good quality steam cleaning unit. Unlike some of the comments previously made about the unit not working properly, I haven't had an ounce of trouble with mine. Admittedly, I don't use mine very often, so I guess that's why I haven't encountered any issues.
Wish I had read these reviews before wasting my money on this rubbish!!
It is rubbish, it does not produce any steam, just boils like a kettle and that's it!! Waste of money, really don't bother buying one!!! It worked a few times then like everyone else just stopped producing steam, yes I did use distilled water, made no difference, how do these companies get away with conning people like this? Ok its not so much a con as they have provided an item for the money, but they really should say its going to break down after a few uses. My guarantee has run out as well as it is not a product you use every day, just once in a while!!! RUBBISH!!!
Best steam cleaner I have ever owned!
I bought the Little Yello about 3 years ago. I saw it demo'd on TVSN and immediately fell it love with it. After the big clunky steam cleaner that I previously owned, Little Yello was a dream come true! The onboard storage for accessories was one of the main reasons I bought it. The very reasonable price was also high on my checklist. After 3 years of regular use, the unit has finally started to wear out. Sadly, TVSN don't have any stock on their website but I hope they will in the near future because I want to buy another one. It remain...s the lightest and easiest steam cleaner I have ever owned and I certainly got my moneys worth out of it. After the other expensive useless steam cleaners, Little Yello has been a breath of fresh air.
this is a waste of time and money
Was working really well but now it has stopped after a month not happy at all for the amount that it cost a total waste of money and time. Put in an issue and no one has come back to help. Very dissappointed with the item and the customer service as there is none. dont waste money or time on the item
