Owners posting to Amazon.com say the McCulloch MC1275 steam cleaner works great for cleaning bathrooms, kitchens and a variety of other surfaces, both indoors and out. Nearly 100 owners at Walmart.com say it's a good value, but some report the steam could be more powerful. For instance, some users say removing heavy soap scum and mildew requires a lot of scrubbing, which can wear down the steam cleaner's brushes. This appliance comes with nine tool attachments that neatly store in a compartment. The 48-ounce tank gives users up to 45 minutes of continuous steam time. Owners also praise the locking mechanism which keeps the steam button in the on position -- a plus for big jobs. This steam cleaner is backed by a one-year warranty. If you want a more portable steam cleaner, the Steamfast SF-226 (*Est. $40) costs less and is made by the same manufacturer, Top Innovations.

The McCulloch MC1275 Heavy-Duty Steam Cleaner is the top-rated product in this category at HomeDepot.com. Nearly 100 reviewers give it an average rating of 4.4 stars out of 5. They agree it's a good value but also say it doesn't produce miraculous results. It heats quickly and works well on soap scum and mildew in the bathroom. Cleaning floors takes a lot less elbow grease with the McCulloch than with chemical cleaners, but you must get down on your knees or use a mop to wipe up the residual moisture and grime.

At Epinions.com, owners can rate each product on ease of use, ease of cleaning, durability and style. The McCulloch MC1275 receives an average rating of 4 stars out of 5 in a dozen reviews, but some commentaries are several years old. One owner says it "produces a steady stream of steam" and works great for cleaning pet cages, but the brushes get worn down quickly. Another recent reviewer likes the long hose and says this cleaner transformed the grimy shower floor into a "like-new" appearance.
