Brilliant - time saving item
Fantastic item - works very well - I can only imagine the bad reviews left are because they haven’t used item as per instructions. You have to press button continuous to get steam pumping. I am very fussy and worked just as well as board and iron a t shirt which was very creased. Fab for bedroom for sorting out creased clothes when you are in a rush. I had been using my iron as a steamer to iron my clothes downstairs and very rarely use the ironing board so really pleased with this item. It is slightly bigger then I thought it would’ve but much easier to use and lighter than trying to steam clothes with my iron.
Didn't like it at first...
The heated sole plate seemed to be as useful as an ashtray on a motorbike, and the steam slot looked like a design flaw as oppose to the evenly spaced holes on the Access Steam version. HOWEVER, having tried it with an ironing board and on the bed, my initial perception has greatly improved. Okay, it still does a decent job on most clothes i.e. blazers/jackets, t-shirts. chinos etc. whilst upright steaming (I do use the brush or delicate attachment to prevent that unsightly shine). But for more stubborn wrinkles and the shirts, it works best when used with the ironing board. I have not used my iron in over a month and cannot say I miss it. The heated sole plate coupled with steam works just as well if not better than a traditional iron (but then again, most of my shirts are non-iron cotton). Access+ is reasonably well made, produces very good amount of steam, cable is of ample length, and the turbo function isn't entirely useless. Pleat attachment is borderline functional, door hook could be of better design (rather sharp edges, the U bent could be a bit deeper) and the steamer could most definitely do with a larger reservoir (it never seem to last the said 8-9 minutes). Descaling is simple with 50/50 white vinegar/water solution, run it till dry, do it outdoors or risk smelling like cheap wine. 4 stars from me Edit 2 June 2021 - Unlike other makes, including Tefal's own Access (non-plus) steamer, this one doesn't leave a wet trail (or spray hot water) on the clothes because of the heated sole plate. Here comes another star. The turbo button, if used for extended period, stays on (i.e. You cannot switch to normal mode) until the steamer cools down. Not a deal breaker but annoying enough to cost 1 star. Tip - I started using de-ionized water (about pound fifty from "every little helps") with this steamer and even with daily use for the past 15 months, descaling hasn't been required. I steam my work suits daily to keep them fresh and an unintended fringe benefit has been a nil dry cleaning bill
It is not an iron replacement, but it is does the job for casual clothes
First of all, this product cannot replace the classic ironing for smart/elegant suits or for the bed sheets and linens. But I don't wear smart suits, nor ironing my bed sheets 🙂 , so for my casual clothes is good enough (I hate to use the ironing table). I prefer to use the steamer horizontally (like the classic iron machine), but directly on the bed (not on a table and not on the hanger, vertically) and the result is acceptable, I can get out of the house, the clothes are dewrinkled enough :). Travelling: I wouldn't take it: I travel with very small luggages (and this is not that small...is like you would take your huge hairdryer with you :))). Easy to use: definitely. Easy to hold: yes, sure.

Careful consideration required
Home garment steamers are a bit a of QVC staple, which might put you off, but it shouldn't. For a while I worked in an American women's clothing business, and all of the female shop staff either owned one or really wanted one - they used them at work all day and thus knew how fantastic they are at making clothes look great. Onto the specifics of this one - a bit fiddly to put together the first time, but fine once done. It does appear flimsy, but so do the professional ones - the vertical pole wobbles around in all garment steamers and that is just fine. Steaming is good but not exceptional and for home use is perfectly adequate - you aren't going to be steaming for three hours at a time. Not much else to be said about this specific steamer - it is good. Not amazing, but good. It could do with a longer hose. Now, do you need a garment steamer at all? Here are a few questions to help you answer that question: - vertical steaming is a gentle affair and nothing like ironing. Steam output is about a quarter of a 'steam generator' iron - a garment steamer will make a worn item look freshly ironed again in a few seconds - a garment steamer will not rescue a bone dry badly creased cotton t-shirt... you need an iron for that - by its very nature a steamer suits hanging clothes - do you have somewhere to keep it without having to dismantle it after every use - and you considering using a steamer to replace an iron... this is a realistic space saving option but very much depends on what you want to iron/steam I reckon that 80% of people considering buying a garment steamer either won't end up buying one, or will and won't end up using it. The other 20% will be very happy, so do give this some serious thought before committing. It is also worth considering the professional steamers - some of them don't cost much more. I hope this review and advice proves useful to you.
Steamer all the way!
Bought it on discount, using it to steam jilbabs and niqabs, does a quick job without burning the fabric like irons do. You have to leave the dress to dry for a while afterwards as a lot of steam goes through the fabric, it will make it damp. It's normal to me, would never put freshly steamed dresses back in the wardrobe anyways.
A steaming success
I hate ironing so Steaming is a quick and easy way for crease free clothes. It’s quick to use. Love the panel screen as really useful
