        Comments about Reliable Enviromate E5 Steam Cleaner:

        I had been researching steam cleaners for quite some time. The primary reason was to find a product that would make it easier to mop our 5400 sf home, rather than with a mop and a bucket that had to be emptied countless times. We have hardwood floors, tile and limestone spread over two floors, and I wanted something heavy duty that would last and make the job as easy as possible.

        Once I decided not to go the Ladybug route (too expensive), I focused on Reliable. But so many choices!! I quickly elimnated the Brio and was torn between E3, E5, and E20. The customer service rep of the steam cleaner's manufacturing company helped me eliminate the E20. He said it was exactly like the E5, except the hose is made of plastic 2mm thicker than E5. Since I have a large home and I often vacuum and mop as I move to different areas, I decided to get the E5 with the ability to refill while unit still on.

        It was love at first mop! I was impressed at how much steam is generated yet after a few swipes on an area of hardwood floors it dried very very quickly. By the time I would move to another 3'x3' area the previous one would be dry. I also appreciate that the cloth can be refolded and reattached when one part starts to get a little soiled. The first time I used it I also tried out the squeegee attachment to clean the glass panes on our front door (very convenient), steamed the dark ring around the base of a toilet off (wow!!), and cleaned the stucco hood above our stove that goes all the way to the ceiling and was previously impossible to dust (piece of cake with the 3 extension tubes that came with the E5 unit and the triangle brush).

        I found very inexpensive replacement Reliable floor cloths on one of the major online auction sites and bought several. However, I was able to do the entire house (floors only) with only one cloth, refolding it as I went until I had used 4 sides. I love that I can just throw it in the washer to reuse it.

        The only downsides I have found so far:

        * The power cord is laughingly short. But I had read countless reviews about this and purchased a heavy duty extension cord to use with the steam cleaner so not a problem now.

        * It takes a little longer than 5 minutes to heat up. No biggie since once it heats up it's good to go until you are done and turn it off. I also found that if I needed to move the unit upstairs, unplugging and replugging would not completely cool down the unit, so as soon as it was replugged it was ready to steam clean and I did not have to wait another 5+ minutes.

        * At first it was a little tiring holding the steam release button the entire time I was mopping. Although there is a lock button, which serves to child-proof the steam gun, it will also lock the steam release button in the "on" position but within a minute it will unlock itself. I am still trying to figure out a way to rig it so that I don't have to hold the steam release button myself the entire time (not that it's hard, but it gets tiring when you are mopping for over an hour).

        * I did not find the handle or any of the big attachments to get too hot to hold. However, when I used the attachment that holds the small nylon brush, the brush itself gets extremely hot so you have to be very careful when you are going to take it off.

        * The hose is very thin in diameter compared to the large base, which makes pulling the unit along feel like it's going to break off. I am sure I will get used to it soon enough.

        Overall I am ecstatic about this purchase and know that I will also be able to take advantage of all its capabilities beyond steam mopping.

        Once I started to use it, ended up cleaning my entire house! Even used it to clean my hot tub. Great value for the money. I did have to buy an extension cord though since cord on it is way too short. You do need to remedy that issue. Everyone says this.

        The only 2 negatives is the short power cord, but we just bought an extension cord, so, no big deal, really.
        However, the main handle is splitting already, and after only 2 uses. They have screws to keep the two halves together, but, it could have had a bit more thought to the design, and apparent flaw. I read the reviews, and knew this beforehand, but still a good machine overall.

        It really works!

        Comments about Reliable Enviromate E5 Steam Cleaner:

        My wife & I reviewed all of the steam cleaners we could find on the internet and chose the Reliable Enviromate E5 Steam Cleaner. While the cost was more than the basic model, we wanted to be able to add water without waiting for a cool-down period. The unit arrived in fine shape and was easy to start up with the good directions.

        We began using it on the upholstered furniture that we had stored in the garage while our floors were being tiled. The result was amazing. In a short time we had "new" looking chairs. We then tackles the carpeted cat toys and again saw dramatic results. The steam was very easy to control with the handle mounted adjustment and there are a number of various heads to choose from for any given job. Next we took the steamer to the kitchen to see what it could do on the tile grout of the countertop. To our pleasant surprise the steam melted the grease and cleaned the tile grout very well. The kitchen sink and drain were next and again the steam liquefied any scum and it was easily rinsed away, leaving a sparkling result.

        We have used it carefully on the painted walls where the house pets have rubbed off their dirt and again, the steam liquefies the dirt and it is easily wiped away, leaving a new appearance. The unit was easy to replenish the water when needed and it stores very easily along with the accessories. We would highly recommend this steam cleaner.
