I received the Steamfast at my home 2 days after entering my order online, arrived in excellent packing and excellent condition. Having read reviews for many steamers on many websites for about 2 months, I did my homework and knew what to expect. This is NOT a steam vacuum. It seems lots who buy it miss that fact. It produces aimable steam and you will need to have lots of cloth/rags to wipe up the water (and dirt). I ordered a 36 pack of microfiber cloths from Amazon to use, wash, reuse. Working out well. The machine is as advertised. Make sure you buy distilled water. 48 oz of water provided me steam for about 2 hours of "stop and go" cleaning. I believe non-stop steam would last about 50 minutes, as advertised. Attachments serve the purpose, but are plastic and melt easily as others have mentioned. I used other brushes I had around and just used the angled head to apply steam and my own brushes to scrub lightly. Watch out when you are using this on painted or plastic like surfaces. I was using the supplied brush to scrub hard crud off fiberglass tubsurround and it got soft and scratchs melt in. Do use caution, and lay off the elbow grease until you see how surfaces react to this much heat. Also be careful using it on painted metal doors, it doesn't take much heat to bubble it up. Wish electric cord was more manageable (place to wrap it even would be nice) - but otherwise it is exactly what I thought I'd be receiving. Thanks to those that took the time to post thoughtful reviews here as they were very helpful in helping me make up my mind between this and another model. Other uses: santize bathroom surfaces, toilets, doorknobs, to help prevent spread of diseases this flu season.
