    jiffy j2000 gets good reviews on amazonhttp://www.amazon.com/Jiffy-Steamer-...9347655&sr=8-1

    Jiffy J-2000 and J-4000 both produce the same quality/amount of steam. where I worked previously, we had both. We preferred the J-2000 because it is very quick to heat up. The J-4000 which I have for my home business takes about 10 - 20 minutes to preheat. J-2000 takes about 2 - 3 minutes (plus it's cheaper model)

    Haha. His anti-steaming essay scared me away from steaming for the better part of six or seven months. But then I relented and went back to my steamy ways. I just avoid the seams when steaming.

    Jiffy ESteam gets a +1 rec from me, but I am a philistine.

    Steaming is really great for some things but it does not eliminate ironing completely like I thought it would when I bought my steamer...

    Maybe I was just being naive when I purchased it.

    Have been using a Jiffy J-2000 for several years and love it. You need to know that it works great some materials and not so well on other materials. For instance works perfect on my polo shirts. However, I find it lacking on some of my dress shirts. I have the jiffy right next to my ironing board and I use the Jiffy about 8/10 times.

    I'm sure they're very steamy ways, AB.

    Jeffery's post stopped me steaming my suits so I'm glad I read it. I had a little Jiffy steamer that worked great for knitwear. I can't remember the model though.

    Can I get some current recommendations for a quality clothes steamer? I am looking for something compact that can travel. Anything new out there for 2010-2011?

    Another vote for Jiffy, I've had mine for more than six years now, works wonderfully.
