Handheld Steam Cleaner - Reviewed

Handheld Steam Cleaner Reviewed
My Handheld Steam Cleaner

This little handheld steam cleaner is a great way to clean around your house chemical-free. It's perfect for small jobs around the house, and you can rest assured you're cleaning and sanitizing at the same time.

I do a lot of grilling and smoking in my offset smoker during the grilling season. After a while, the inside of the smoker builds up with grease. This is the main reason that I bought this handheld steamer, but I found this little tool to have many other uses. By the way, you will find some great grilling and smoking ideas at Sam's Places my food blog.

Just like commercial steam cleaners, this handheld is perfect for removing dirt and grime while killing germs, but you are limited to smaller cleaning jobs.

How did it work on my grill? Well, it didn't completely wipe out the grease build-up, but it did loosen up the grease enough to make the job much easier. Bottom line I was happy with the results.

I also used this to clean the tire rims on my car, and it worked great. Below are the before and after photos of my car rims.

The top photo is before and the bottom is the after. I used no spray bottles of harsh chemicals or the garden hose. I just used the handheld steamer and then wiped the rims clean with a dry cloth.

I tried the steam cleaner on my glass shower doors and wasn't satisfied with the results. I think it's because the glass is beveled on my shower doors. This is not a big concern for me as it worked very well everywhere else that I used it.

  1. Wow, I didn't know they made such a thing. What a handy little cleaner. It would be VERY helpful in cleaning MY tire rims, as they have so many small places that are hard to reach by hand. Thanks so much for this helpful review, Sam. I can think of a dozen uses for this steam cleaner right off the top of my head.

  2. My goodness, Sam - the before and after shots of your tire rims sold me on the value of this little portable steam cleaner! Thanks for sharing your experiences with it.

  3. What a fabulous little appliance to have at home! As I was reading your post, I was busy sharing your information with my husband about how you steam your outdoor grill. Keeping an outdoor grill clean has always been a pet peeve of his since food is cooked on it. The tire rims look wonderful! Most impressive. I could easily imagine my husband running around the house with this little steam cleaner trying it out on various surfaces.

  4. These are great little tools. I hate the build up of gunge around my bathroom sink, and these little steamers just power that stuff right out of there. No Chemicals for me is HUGE! I am trying to make my carbon footprint as small as possible and this sure helps. Thanks Sam Monaco for a great review.

  5. Wow! to clean the tire rims on your car as well. I'm not telling my husband because this is a tool he would want, and that man has gadgets coming out of the woodwork - but now you got me thinking about this as a christmas gift :)

  6. What great ideas on different ways to use this handy gadget!
