GLENDALE, ARIZONA -- I recently purchased a Conair Fabric Steamer, Model Number GS7, and I'm very happy with it! My partner works in higher level administration, and looking nice is always a priority. We thought we'd find a fabric steamer to save on drycleaning expenses ... sitting at a desk most of the day, or in meetings, her dress pants don't necessarily get all that dirty, just a lot of wrinkles/creases.
I went to Walmart where I found about 4-5 different types of fabric steamers. They ranged from hand-held models to mid-size to 'floor' models. At first I thought I'd just purchase a cheaper hand-held model. But as I spent time examining each type of model, how it worked and what could be reasonably expected, I decided the GS7 (a 'floor' model) would be a much better purchase. (I was specifically looking for something to use at home, not for travel.)
The thing with the smaller, hand-held steamers was, sure they're more compact but at the same time, it would take twice as long to steam a pair of pants. With the GS7, because it's got more power, you expend less effort while getting results faster.
I'm really glad I bought the GS7. I'm not kidding when I say this, but you can get rid of all the wrinkles in a pair of pants in about 5-10 minutes! I was amazed. For example yesterday I steamed a pair of Pendleton slacks (expensive!) and in a very short time they looked like they had been at the cleaners.
The only down side for me, personally, since I'm not the most mechanical person, was having to put the thing together. There were about 5-6 parts, and it was a little confusing at first, but the directions were pretty helpful.
When it's all put together, you can easily store it in your closet. Just wheel it out when you need it, plug it in, and poof! In 2 minutes it's ready. It's put together somewhat like a vacuum cleaner. You have a 5-foot hose which has a steamer nozzle on the end. You just run the nozzle back and forth over the fabric you want to smoothen.
It's very light-weight also, and has wheels so you can scoot it around. I paid about $70 for the Conair Fabric Steamer GS7. Well worth it because it's more powerful than smaller models and does the job quicker!
