Hoover SteamJet


The older brother of the Hoover SteamJet Express, the Hoover SteamJet provides powerful steam cleaning potential for a hand held steamer. It is one of the best handheld cleaners we reviewed due to its power and ease of use. It has a detachable water tank which can be refilled even while the device is in use, meaning you can reduce your cleaning times since you don’t have to constantly power up and power down your steam cleaner.


Additionally, it features a 20 second heat-up period, and 20 minutes of continuous use, making it one of the longest-lasting cleaners on the market. For the power, functionality and ease of use, you will not find a better handheld steam cleaner on the market. The price is the only downside we saw as it is more expensive than the majority of handhelds on the market. That being said, you will know where your money went.

What We Love:

– Longest run duration of any handheld steam cleaner we tested
– Quick heat-up time
– Can be filled while still functioning

What Could Be Improved:

– More expensive than most other handhelds
– Lower water capacity than most handhelds
– Some reviews have pointed towards faulty models
