Where to Buy
 

Most owners are pleased with this garment steamer's ability to remove wrinkles from lighter fabrics, including suit jackets, bed sheets and curtains, but we found disagreement when it comes to heavier items like cotton dress shirts. The water tank holds 40 ounces of water and provides 45 minutes of continuous steam. The hose on the Steamfast SF-407 does tend to get hot, owners say, so users should be careful when using this steamer. It comes with a press pad and fabric brush and offers a two-year limited warranty. A few owners say this lightweight unit seems like it might tip over during use; the sturdier Jiffy Steamer J-2000 (Est. $160) weighs about 10 pounds more and produces approximately 90 minutes of continuous steam. Still, one pro reviewer says the Steamfast SF-407 should suffice for most home uses.

We found more than 300 owner-written reviews of the Steamfast SF-407 on Amazon.com. Two owners also write detailed reviews on Washing-Machine-Wizard.com. The Steamfast SF-407 is also included in a roundup of the top garment steamers on Bestcovery.com.
