Let's start with what you get with this purchase: Of course you get the basic unit, with the rectangular head and mop cloth. You ALSO GET a "triangular head" with the accompanying mop pad. I mention this because the other model (S3501) says you get the extra head and cloth BUT YOU DON'T. The description and the questions in the "review" section says you get the extra items....YOU DON'T. So with that cleared up, lets get to the actual performance.
It's a very light 5 lbs, with a 25' cord. Filling it with water is a snap, and once turned on it only takes 45 seconds to get the steam. The steam is dispensed initially by pushing (pumping) down on the handle a few times, once that is done the steam comes out on the forward stroke, and it turns off when drawing it back towards you. It glides very smoothly across the floor, and is very maneuverable in getting around items. As a side of the pad gets dirty, simply turn the unit over to the opposite side and you have a fresh pad to complete the job. It holds enough water to do maneuverable 800-1000 maneuverable feet of floor...it will vary depending on how dirty you floors are. The best part is that it dries in a minute or so, and leaves the floors feeling exceptionally clean and fresh. You simply toss the dirty pads in the wash, I recommend using "oxi clean" to assist in getting the tough dirt instead of bleach, it will be easier on them and they will last much longer. Finally, always use distilled water, you will extended the life of it tremendously and save yourself from the bother of dealing with mineral deposits.
I love the thing, and highly recommend it.
