The Jiffy Steamer J-2000 garment steamer is the best-reviewed full-size home garment steamer. For some people, this steamer replaces ironing, but most reviewers agree irons are still a necessity for crisp edges and detail work (like collars and cuffs). Reviewers say that this steamer removes wrinkles extremely well and can freshen clothing well enough to postpone a trip to the dry cleaner. They also praise features like the stay-cool handle and auto-off function, though some reviewers complain that the hose becomes very hot and the wheels on the tank don't lock.
The Jiffy Steamer J-2000 is named the best garment steamer by Bestcovery.com reviewer Jerry Arlen, who notes its effectiveness and durability. Owners on Amazon.com also comment on its exceptional quality. While it is expensive, most say it's worth the price. Several bloggers, who say they've used the product professionally in the fashion industry, say it stands up in extreme conditions. It heats up very quickly and can be used for hours on end (with tank refills every 90 minutes).
Jerry Arlen recommends five garment steamers, including the top-ranked Jiffy Steamer J-2000 Residential Series Garment Steamer. He praises the J-2000 as effective and durable, citing its auto-off function as a useful feature.
