Conair Turbo ExtremeSteam Watt 1875 Handheld Fabric

by Conair

Innovative Garment Care: From fabric shavers and traditional irons to garment steamers, both handheld and full size, we make high-quality garment care accessories

The Conair Turbo ExtremeSteam 1875 Watt Handheld Fabric, 2-in-1 Steam and Iron Garment Steamer, One Size, Black/Blue is a well-built, useful steamer. It's the most powerful steamer we tested (and its 1875 watts of steaming power were impressive), and it felt the fastest and most effective at ironing out wrinkles. The ease of using, portability, and long battery life also makes it a good choice for small apartments or dormitories. The included accessories are also useful for steam-cleaning a variety of fabrics, and the steamer has an intuitive design with easy-to-read indicator lights. However, it is a bit too loud to be ideal for ironing during a weekday, and it's a bit bulky for traveling.

by Conair

Innovative Garment Care: From fabric shavers and traditional irons to garment steamers, both handheld and full size/upright, we make high quality garment care tools for all users

The steamer's steam output, which can reach up to 1,050 watts, is also enough to steam fabric without soaking it, and it comes with three attachments, including a silicone band to pull fabric taut, a delicate fabric spacer to protect trims and fine fabrics, and a bristle brush to ensure steam penetrates fibers for a perfect press, even on heavy fabrics. The steamer also comes with a travel bag so it's more convenient to steam on the go, and it has a folding handle for easier storage. The steamer is lightweight, so it's easy to carry and store, and it's quiet enough to not disrupt others. The steamer is also much more powerful than our previous pick, the Breville BOV600XL, and it produces enough steam to steam thick fabrics without soaking them, such as curtains and upholstery.

BLACK+DECKER Advanced Handheld Garment / Fabric Steamer with 3 Attachments, Gray/Blue, HGS200

BLACK+DECKER Advanced Handheld Garment / Steamer Fabric with 3 Attachments

by Spectrum Brands

Burst of Steam: Hit the steam trigger to generate a powerful burst of steam that blasts away wrinkles

The Black & Decker HGS200 Garment Steamer is an affordable and powerful steamer, and it's the only garment steamer we tested with a continuous steam feature. The continuous steam feature is especially convenient, as it means you can steam clothes, upholstery, and curtains all at once. The steamer also produces a more powerful burst of steam than most models we tested, which is ideal for steaming larger items or stubborn creases. The steamer produces a lot of steam, but it runs out of steam quickly. The steamer is large and bulky, and it requires a lot of space. The handle is also long, making it a little difficult to maneuver. The steamer also turns off automatically after 15 minutes of inactivity, which is great for conserving energy. The steamer's attachments are also a bit flimsy, so don't expect to do any heavy-duty cleaning on them. Another drawback is that the steamer doesn't provide much heat, so it's difficult to dry delicate fabrics like silk. Overall, the Black & Decker HGS200 Garment Steamer is an efficient and powerful steamer, and it easily beats other steamers in our tests when it comes to continuous steam, but it has a few drawbacks.
