Breaking it down


Good water capacity for extended use. Reviewers like the generous, 96-ounce water reservoir on the J-2000 Jiffy Garment Steamer. They say the no-drip check valve system works well to contain drips and messes. It has a 5.5-foot flexible hose with a plastic steam head and handle. The J-2000 is equipped with an on/off switch and has an automatic shut-off if the machine accidentally runs dry. Two steam head attachments are available, plastic and metal. The plastic steam head is the most affordable; the metal option will add about $50 to the price. It also comes in pink, which adds about $10 to the price of the plastic steam head model, about $40 to the price of the metal head version.

Ease of use

Simple procedure. Experts love the streamlined vibe of the J-2000 Jiffy Garment Steamer, saying that makes it super simple to use. Owners agree that it is incredibly easy and effective. Although it weighs 18 pounds, reviewers say the J-2000 moves easily because it rolls on casters. The lightweight hose needs to be kept in an upright position so collected condensation flows back into the steamer. We also saw some complaints that said the hose may get hot at times. Owners further caution that you need to be careful around the steam and the hot parts of the hose to avoid getting burned. The steamer is easy to fill, and reviewers love the see-through water tank, but the old water should be replaced periodically. Cleaning is recommended every three to six months to remove hard-water deposits and sediment build-up. The cord is not retractable.


Rave reviews. The 1,300-watt J-2000 Jiffy Garment Steamer gets much praise from reviewers for quickly and efficiently removing wrinkles from fabrics. A few complain that it does not produce the same "pressed" look that an iron does, but since it's not an iron, that's not a realistic expectation. The J-2000 takes one to two minutes to heat up, and then steams for 1.5 hours on a single fill. The J-2000 has a three-year warranty.
