I bought this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=4323036015 When my last one finally burned out and in the interim got one of those 29.99 Conair ones from Wal-Mart. Figured both were worth a review here since I am always yelling at folks to quit dry cleaning so much and get a steamer. The ConAir one is a light duty job - ALL the water has to boil to generate steam so it is a little slow to start but once cooking works pretty well. For the average guy who plans to use it once per week this would suffice. The Quicksteam Professional is awesome, my old one was a lighter duty one from the same manufacturer (SteamFast) but this one is a monster - steams up fast and releases a LOT of steam very quickly. Hang up 6 suits on the shower rod and this baby will have them completely unwrinkled in about 2-3 minutes. Dress shirt requires one pass. For $150 on ebay this will save you hours of ironing and thousands on dry cleaning while making your clothes last a LOT longer. ..also has accessories you can order to use it as a steam cleaner. For the 100th time - if you want your clothes to last, hang'm up, brush them off, remove any visible dirt, steam it, let it hang loose for a day and stick it in the closet. Your stuff will last a LOT longer.
