I love this steamer! It heats up quickly and the water reservior is a good size, even if you are steaming clothes for half an hour, you won't need to refill it. At the same time, it is still not too heavy when it is filled. The wheels make it easy to use. The cord does does get a little warm because of the steam traveling through it. The top which holds the steaming wand is a nice place to hang clothes while steaming. It would be nice in the cord for the steam wand was a bit longer. Steaming clothing is just soo much easier than ironing clothing. This steamer isn't cheap, but you are getting quality that is going to last, even if you use it often. I used it professionally in a small clothing boutique, steaming new shipments of clothing, which is using it for several hours at a time every few weeks.
