PurSteam Elite Garment Steamer Review

To the eye, PurSTeamM Elite garment steamer looks awesome. To the touch, it feels like a solid, high-quality piece from top to bottom.

20 seconds is all it takes to warm up yet powerful, steady steam is obtainable to keep you at a steaming task for up to 60 minutes with little or no interruption.

Want something that can get the wrinkles out quickly while getting you out the door right away?

Handy to have around, It is perfect for those mornings when you are in a hurry but nothing seems to be done, or for those near embarrassing moments (like realizing a dress was wrinkled on the morning of an early afternoon wedding).

Assuming you are still interested, here is a detailed review of the PURSTEAM ELITE garment steamer.

Full Review Of The PurSTeam Elite Garment Steamer

Design And Construction

The PURSTEAM full-size garment steamer comes in colors of white elegantly styled with teal blue.

It is an upright garment steamer with a wheel attached to the reservoir.

The water tank is detachable, lightweight and transparent.

There is an outlet in the reservoir for draining water.

There are hooks on the Nozzle Cradle (that is assuming you would rather use your own hanger).

The plastic pocket gadget also helps to keep the pocket flat and straighten collars while preventing burns.

Design = appealing and compact. Construction = strong and sturdy.

Features And Functionalities

There you go, a job-specific attachment for more detailed steaming. Provided for free by PURSTEAM which goes to show the thought they put into their products.

Besides the job-specific attachment, there is also a telescopic aluminum pole, which is lightweight and sturdy, plus it is collapsible for ease of storage.

What is more?

A dual insulated steam hose for your protection and safety.

Also an On/Off Switch for greater control, in addition to a plastic steam nozzle to protect your delicate fabrics.

Other helpful features of this steamer are its handheld steam board and the adjustable hanger.

While the former feature lets you access those tough spots (collars, sleeves, pockets) the latter feature lets you easily eliminate wrinkles from fabrics of different length, size, and thickness.

Not only that, the clips help to hold your other garments in place.

Even so, the crease attachment lets you put finishing touches to your clothes for that perfect, crisp look.

The water tank holds about half a gallon. Not a ton but enough that constant refilling isn’t necessary.

Similarly the water tank, transparent and removable, lets you see when you are running low on water and doubles for a near effortless refilling.
Beneath the unit is a handy drain outlet to aid in the emptying, cleaning and flushing of the machine

Performance

The longest part is taking the machine out of the closet, extending the arms, plugging it in, flipping the switch, putting your item on the hanger. Depending on the user in question this shouldn’t take more than five minutes.

The next longest part is waiting for it to heat up (takes about 20 seconds).

The rest is kind of magical.

Once the steam starts nice and steady, start at the bottom of your garment first then work your way up. If the steam stops, hold up the hose till it pours back out and resume your steaming session.

PURSTEAM PS 910 model steam output is about a 7-8/10. For light to medium weight fabric, it will get the job done much easier. It may take longer to do heavy khakis.

Again depending on your experience with fabric steamers and thickness of the wrinkles, you could steam a half dozen men’s shirts with this steamer before refilling.

While the main purpose of this steamer is steaming clothes, it does a great job cleaning and disinfecting items of furniture & carpet.

Recommendations

  • Steam from inside of the shirt. Put the steamer inside the shirt that is hung on the hanger, and while holding the shirt at the bottom with one hand, pull the steamer against the garment and work your way up and down.
  • Steam is strong. Consider getting a glove.
