Hoover SteamJet Express Handheld Steam Cleaner

The Hoover SteamJet Express tops the list of our best hand held. There is a lot to be said for this powerful little steam cleaner that sets it aside from its competition. At 4 bars of steam pressure, it is by far the most powerful hand held steam cleaner we tested. This allows you to use it for just about any task around the house from cleaning grout to emergency carpet spills and everything in between. It comes with accessories to help with cleaning those tough areas of your home and features a standard 400 mL water tank. This gives it about 12 minutes of continuous operating time, which is slightly lower than the industry stand of 15 minutes. That being said, the power you get means you won’t need that long for the work you need it to accomplish.

What We Love:

– 4 bar pressure gives you the power to get through tough dirt and grime
– Accessories give you options when it comes to cleaning around your home
– Very good price

What Could Be Improved:

– Lower runtime than average handhelds
– Not great for use on fabrics
– Not ideal for large areas
