Steamworks SW1 Upright Steam Cleaner. 2.7 5 145 149
Would not recommend The product was very easy to put together and that is the only thing it has going for it. Since first use I have plugged it in and the red light never changes to green meaning that the product never steams. Still it is a canny hard floor cleaner but not a steamer. 20 May 2014
I should have taken notice So disappointed this product just didn't work at all! Other reviews suggested it wouldn't heat up enough and was useless but I thought maybe they were just unlucky of using incorrectly but I was wrong. I left the machine for longer than specified to heat up but there was no steam at all and I had to return it for a refund. What a waste of time ordering, waiting in for delivery and indeed unpacking. 20 May 2014
This product is good Needed something quick and easy and cheap. This item is good 20 May 2014
This item is a waste of time keep your money and go and buy a mop and bucket i only gave it a 1 out of 5 cos i wasnt able to give 0 20 May 2014
useless item Bought it in the sale so thought it worth a try. First one broke within 2 weeks, so returned it for a replacement. The second one only lasted 3 days so returned for a refund. I should have read the reviews first. Cannot understand why this item is still on sale. Should have been withdrawn months ago. 20 May 2014
no green light ! I took the first one back as the green light didnt come on as the instructions said it would. The light on the second one doesnt go to green either but unit does steam so I have kept this one. 20 May 2014
You get what you pay for Handle is very flimsy, green light did not come on, floor was very wet for quite some time after using. On a positive note - it is quick to use, no chemicals required and does actually clean the floor better than a mop and bucket. Shame you can not get spare cloths for it. 15 May 2014
Returned Item would not steam and only got to a tepid temperature, tried switching off and back on but still would not heat up so returned for a refund. 15 May 2014
Steam mop Great little mop, saves having to use smelly old mops. Very easy to use and heats up in minutes, plus its design makes it easy to get into corners, and the floor dries in minutes. Great product. 15 May 2014
Unbelievably Bad Despite having seen adverse reviews for this I took a chance and bought one, hoping others had just been unlucky. Sadly the one I received was useless, unable to get hot enough to produce any steam, hence I returned it the next day. I'm really surprised at Argos selling and continuing to sell a product so unfit for purpose. 14 May 2014
Steamer It's ok for the price I paid. The green light never goes off, was going t take back but my daughter has it now. Would not recommend 13 May 2014
Good Value if it Worked! An exceptionally good price but on trying to use as per the instructions the red light failed to turn green after ten minutes, not the one minute stated, and we only got a wisp of steam and the cleaner would not function as it should. We had to return it and get a refund. Very disappointed. 13 May 2014
Fine for small areas I was a bit concerned when I read some of the other reviews but as I always like to make up my own mind I decided to give it a go. I love the fact that I can wash the floor quickly and with little effort. As pointed out in many other reviews the light does not go out or change to green when the mop is ready so you just have to watch the clock for the required time. I am happy with my purchase. 13 May 2014
Returned Overall seemed ok to put together .Unfortunately although it got hot the part which connects to the base was broken so would not load the water for steam.Returning to buy another type . 13 May 2014
Steam Cleaner that doesn't! Bought this cleaner as it was on offer and I wanted to see how good steam cleaners are before buying a decent one. Only problem (and it is a major one) it doesn't work. Filled up with water, plugged in and although red light came on nothing else happened. Should have taken more notice of the previous reviews! Returned for refund straight away. Don't bother buying one. 13 May 2014
Good Value Bought this to clean our laminate floor and kitchen floor. It does the job very well. Alright it isn't the same as a hundred quid one but what do you expect. Out performs the old mop and bucket and without the mess. Happy Days! 13 May 2014
This product was returned within 12 hours it did not do what it was supposed to do. I would not advise anyone to purchase this steam mop. 13 May 2014
item was returned:-( The steam mop didn't get hot enough to produce steam, so had no chance of using it. We returned it back to the store and got a refund. 13 May 2014
Very poor item!!! Would not recommend this like others have said the light does t come in no matter how long you leave it, the tiniest bit of steam come out stay away for. This product very misleading!!! 13 May 2014
Do not buy Rubbish cheap product. I had two (one was a replacement) neither of which got to temperature, the green light never came on. You get what you of for. 13 May 2014
