ConsumerSearch recommends the Jiffy Personal Series J-2000 as its first choice, followed by the Rowenta Compact Valet or the SteamFast SF-510. All three are suitable for clothing, drapes and linens.
The 1300-watt Jiffy J-2000 has a 96-ounce tank that heats up in minutes and provides 90 minutes of steaming time. Wheels make this 18-pound steamer easy to move around. Consumers reported some concern with an overheated handle, but otherwise, ConsumerSearch reports that the unit heats quickly and holds 81 ounces of water. The Steamfast SF-510 is full-sized, but budget-friendly. It heats up quickly and runs for 50 continuous minutes. This machine is especially suited to heavier fabrics due to its collapsible hanger.
