-Steam amount and duration is better than any Rowenta I have tried.
-The design makes it look like it was handed down to me by my great grand pappy. Not a big deal if you are going to keep it out of sight, unfortunately for me, being in an apartment means I have to leave it out in my bedroom and it’s pretty ugly.
-Tube leading up to the handle gets very hot. If you have kids or pets make sure you keep them away after you use it. For double the price of every other steamer, a protective covering would have been nice. Seems standard for every other model I looked at.
-The hook at the top of the pole leaves something to be desired. It doesn’t really seem like much thought was put into it. It doesn’t really hold the handle cleanly and if you’re tall like me your shirts will basically hang on the ground.
Overall, none of those cons have any affect on it’s actual steaming abilities so if that is your only concern, make the purchase. I felt that for double the cost of anything else they could have put some more thought into the overall design.

This steamer does take a minute to warm up, and you will want to wait a few extra minutes even after it is blowing out steam to use the device. It is very sturdy and commercial grade feeling. One full tank of water did over eight Brooks Brothers “non-iron” shirts and three dress pants/ chinos. In theory, I also believe the metal head works better because it retains more heat is hotter when steaming up close.

Anyways, I have smaller hands and the handle was much wider and very heavy which I was not expecting. I almost returned it however I then realized that the reason it is metal is because it gets so hot it is kind of link a hot iron (at least this is my philosophy) , so I kept it and I am used to using it now. It may be more of an issue if I have to do curtains or something for a long period of time (just an FYI, I frequently use power tools because I renovate and flip properties so I am used to using large tools).
With that said, Jiffy is by far the BEST product you’ll buy, I have purchased other brands for my vacation rental properties and they are useless and almost unusable.

A few words of warning, the pipe and base and of course the top becomes extremely hot. Like, burn you if you touch it hot! I wouldn’t use this around kids or pets. Additionally, make sure the water container locks in right (you should hear some gulping sounds as the water goes down into the base when you set it on). Also, the hose can become kinked fairly easily, and the boiling water will back up like a volcano and come out of the base, pretty dangerous, but just keep an eye on it.
