Beldray 10-in-1 Handheld Steam Cleaner - A Full Review
The Beldray 10-in-1 Handheld Steam Cleaner is a great choice as a first-time in-home steam cleaning device.We were shocked that we could get the power we did out of this small machine, and it regularly surprised us with the range we could get out of the power cord. It is incredibly compact and lightweight which makes cleaning a breeze. We found it to be a pleasure to use, but were a bit disappointed at the requirement for regular refills. That being said, we would highly recommend this option to anyone looking for a small-scale steam cleaning option without the cost of a typical steam cleaning device.
At first glance, the 10-in-1 Handheld looks so small that we doubted it would be powerful enough to accomplish much of anything. We could not have been more wrong. It easily powered through every test we gave it, making it a quick favourite. We found the 5 metre power cord particularly useful as it allowed us to get every corner of our test kitchen, which is sized to reflect the size of the kitchen in an average home.
We found the attachments particularly useful as they are specially made to be used for different surfaces. Each one performed well, and we were able to cover most areas in each room in about 10 minutes. The power of the 10-in-1 Handheld lends itself well to spot-cleaning carpeted areas or upholstery. It does not drown the area in water, which is ideal when cleaning fabrics. It does, however, power through these tasks fairly quickly.
Unfortunately, that was necessary since the water tank is only 220mL at full capacity. This meant that steam production was extremely limited - about 10 to 12 minutes - which meant regular refills. Although it heats up fairly quickly, this caused a 1 or 2 minute delay every time we ran out of water. It turned a 20 minute job into a 25 minute job - not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but it would have been a better experience if we had more water to work with. Apart from that, we cannot say enough about this steam cleaner. Based on the price,it is one of the best devices we tested, hands down.
What We Love:
- Very powerful handheld steam cleaner option
- Extremely portable and able to tackle most surfaces in your home
What Could Be Improved:
- Small water tank means short steam production times
- Not great for large-scale cleaning such as tiled floors
