We like this garment steamer because it is efficient, durable and it comes with a lot of accessories which render the classic iron useless.
The Kazoo 1580W/54 Professional Dual Bar Garment Steamer is without a doubt one of the best garment steamers on the market. It is enough to look at its features in order to see that this steamer is both efficient and easy to use. If the features don’t convince you, perhaps you will be convinced by the numerous positive customer reviews that you can find online. It is those reviews that cough our eye and convinced us to give this steamer a closer look in order to see what it is capable of doing. The listing price for this steamer is $335.99, but on seasonal sales, you can buy it for only $99.99.
The appliance features a 1600ml/54 oz water tank which might not seem like much, but it is sufficient for providing 60 minutes of continuous steam. No matter how numerous your family is, one thing is for sure: no one wants to spend more than an hour steaming clothes, so we find this capacity to be very satisfactory. We like the fact that the water heats up reasonably fast, producing steam after 45 seconds from being turned on. This steamer is also very versatile as it has various features that allow you to adjust its performance such as a rotary button or a six-way precise adjustment. The food petal allows you to make the adjustments with minimum effort. Not only will this steamer eliminate wrinkles, but it will also sterilize garments and get rid your clothes of unpleasant odors. This unit is suitable for handling different types of textiles, from delicate garments, such as silk, to rough curtain fabrics. The unit is also equipped with some useful safety measures such as an integrated thermostat which cuts off the power supply when there is no more water left in the tank, and a thermal fuse which provides instant protection should the thermostat breakdown. The heat is effectively dissipated in order to prevent the user’s hands from scalding.
The design is basic yet practical. It features a standing floor element and a dual pole. The glossy white finish with gray linings looks very professional. Moreover, not only does it look good, but it is also very durable as it features a lot of stainless steel elements. The unit is easy to install and it occupies very little storage space when it is not being used. It comes with a triangular ironing brush, a line-type clothes hanger, a hook, a chassis, a solid move lock, two aluminum poles and a triangular collar press pad. Most clothes steamer come with very few accessories, but with this steamer, you can iron all types of clothes, even shirts, and you will never need to use your iron again. For easy transportation, the unit also comes with rolling wheels.
What we most like about this unit is the fact that it is very practical. It is one of the very few steamers that we know of which has a dual pole that allows you to iron several clothing pieces simultaneously. The foot pedal is also very useful as it allows you to operate the device without having to bend down and adjust the settings manually. The automatic wind up is also very useful. The hanger shoulder is adjustable and the 37mm handle is very comfortable. Another interesting feature is the retractable power cord which saves you the trouble of having to gather the cord yourself. In a nutshell, this clothes steamer is very easy to use and it will allow you to finish ironing your clothes a lot faster than you would with other steamers. As far as the maintenance goes, the device is not very pretentious. It automatically shuts off when it runs out of water. The bottom drain design allows for easy cleaning. The steamer is designed for use in the USA, so if you have anything other than 110V power outlets, you will need adapters.
The unit is made of high quality materials. The dual aluminum pole is very sturdy and it can handle a maxim load of 20 kg. The unit also features a 1.25m 8-layer thick high density yarn wrapped pipe that provides a high thermal insulation. This device is designed to last a long time, and if you have any doubts, you should know that it comes with a two year warranty.
