Hi! I want to ask,have you guys used the Philips Handheld steamer??

I really hate ironing,my clothes are mainly those don't require ironing.
But I still have formal clothes right,so I thought getting a steamer.

I saw these handheld steamer of Philips at the deparmental stores such as Tesco or Jusco etc. They are definitely lighter (I live in hostel) and just a fraction of the usual steamer.

But how good are they compared to the usual ones? I can understand if it is slightly not as good,but if it's unusable then no point getting it right?

Here's the link to the website

Review please!!

I'm curious as well. Are these steamers effective for formal shirts? Anyone?

Effective but don't expect to be as straight as the iron at the side and the end of the cloth.

Even ironing is not straight so don't expect much from steamer.

I bought a pro version years ago, same brand that boutiques uses. This was before steamers became popular in stores like now. In the end I returned it cause it wasn't working out for me. Too much trouble.

Better and much faster to use a steam iron. Good ironing board is also important

I'm using a Rowenta Steam Force Steam Iron DW9230 at the moment. Had it for over 2 years now and it still works wonderfully. Plenty of steam to take out those stubborn wrinkles.
Minimal leaks or if any. Only thing is I have to keep refilling when going through a pile of shirts.

Lol yea same here. I prefer conventional iron than a steamer.
Steamer is, well, a little overrated like you said.
