The cons of the ESTEAM Personal Hand Held Steamer that customers have found:

  • It does not hold as much water as some of the other hand held steamers.
  • There is no on/off switch (you just have to plug it in and plug it out).
  • You have to wait for the appliance to cool down before adding more water.
  • Many customers found it doesn’t work well on cotton.
  • Customers find it hard to fill (filling it is accomplished by removing the hot steamer head).
  • It is found to be unstable on solid surfaces so customers need to be careful.
  • If it is not emptied after every use, it can become a breeding ground for bacteria.


Overall, this product seems to have both pros and cons and it is hard to decide upon whether it is worth the purchase or not, given the cons. However, we must keep in mind that this is a hand held steamer and not a professional grade steamer, so it carries more complications. For its price and given the fact that it is compact, we rate this steamer as 3/5.
