CHOICE Expert Rating View more details.

This overall score is made up of performance (70%) and ease of use (30%).

Performance score View more details.

We assess how effective the garment steamers are at removing creases. We use synthetic organza, silk, wool, a cotton shirt, denim jeans, a poly-cotton shirt, dresses and curtains for the test. The performance score accounts for 70% of the overall score. Linen doesn't typically work well with garment steamers, so although we test this, we don't factor the result into the performance score.

Ease of use score View more details.

We check how easy it is to fill the water tank, how comfortable the iron is to hold, the convenience of the hose, the functionality of the hanger and how easy the controls are to use. The ease of use score accounts for 30% of the overall score.

Denim score View more details.

How well the steamer works on denim. We don't incorporate this into the overall score.

Linen score View more details.

The linen score doesn't factor in to the performance score, because garment steamers don't typically work well with linen. This means results can't be directly compared with steam irons and steam stations.
