Amazon.com lists steam cleaners in several categories, including appliances and household/kitchen. Most models receive just a few reviews; those that attract the most customer attention typically get an overall rating of 4 stars out of 5. Standout models rank at or above 4 stars after at least 45 user reviews. Sometimes reviewers come back after months or years to comment on durability or customer service issues.

Credibility:

Owners can rate handheld and canister steam cleaners sold at Walmart.com. Some steam cleaners get hundreds of reviews, others just a few. While many of the reviews are unique to Walmart.com, others are imported from the manufacturer's website.

Editors of AllergyBuyersClub.com, As of May 2017
Credibility:

AllergyBuyersClub.com sells products focused on helping allergy sufferers keep allergens under control. Products listed at this online retailer receive ratings from both consumers and experts. While users leave brief comments, the experts assign separate ratings for factors including steam quality and heat-up time, in addition to the overall ranking. Reviews by both experts and owners tend to be extremely thorough and detailed.

Credibility:

HomeDepot.com carries a good number of steam cleaners and many accumulate a decent number of reviews, while others get just a handful. Ratings tend to be higher here than at Amazon.com for comparable vapor cleaners.

Contributors to Target.com, As of May 2017
Credibility:

Target.com has a good assortment of canister-style and handheld steam cleaners, but they get fewer reviews overall than elsewhere, and some reviews were originally posted at the manufacturer's website. Each user review is divided into separate ratings issued for effectiveness, quality and value.

Credibility:

This online retailer specializing in products that improve air quality carries more expensive, higher-end steam cleaners. Because they tend to be pricier, there are fewer reviews here, but it's still a good source for getting owner feedback on those better vapor cleaners.

Contributors to BestBuy.com, As of May 2017
Credibility:

Shoppers at BestBuy.com can review the steam cleaners listed here. Most get just a few reviews, but reviewers can say if they would recommend the product to a friend. It's also noted when the product is a verified purchase.
