How to choose the right garment steamer

We want you to invest in a steamer that can become a lasting part of your everyday routine. With this article, we hope to help you find the right kind of steamer that best suits your lifestyle and clothing care needs.

Choosing the right steamer

Steamery offers a range of steamers that have been designed to serve different needs. When choosing what kind of steamer to invest in, consider your living situation, as well as your current and future clothing care needs. Do you value efficiency, portability, aesthetics, or versatility? Or perhaps a mixture of all these things? This article will provide an overview of the different kinds of steamers that we offer and what makes them all unique.

Cirrus 1 Handheld Steamer

Cirrus 1 Handheld Steamer is the first generation in our Cirrus family of steamers. Like our other handheld steamers, Cirrus 1 was created with mobility and travel in mind. With its small and lightweight design, it is easy to carry in your weekend bag or suitcase while traveling, so that your garments can stay fresh and wrinkle-free when you are on the go.

Cirrus 2 Handheld Steamer

Cirrus 2 Handheld Steamer is similar to its predecessor in terms of weight and size, but it has been upgraded with a Scandinavian minimalist design, matte finish, and muted color palette that naturally fits into the aesthetic of any modern home. Cirrus 2 is also equipped with a stainless-steel mouthpiece that enables better friction between the fabric and the steamer for a more efficient steaming result.

Cirrus 3 Iron Steamer

If you prefer the pressed, ironed look—or, if you simply want a handheld steamer that goes the extra mile—you may want to invest in Cirrus 3 Iron Steamer. This unique hybrid steamer is equipped with a hot ironing plate that heats up to the equivalent of level one on an iron, so you can achieve either a pressed look or a natural look. Like Cirrus 2, it is designed with a modern, geometric, and minimalist aesthetic in mind.

Cumulus Home Steamer

If you live in a larger household or regularly steam lots of items, a home steamer might be the best choice for you. Cumulus Home Steamer is a vertical steamer that is ideal for steaming large quantities of garments in one session. The biggest advantage of a home steamer is that you can avoid the hassle of having to refill the water tank after steaming a few items. This can be a deal-breaker if you like to steam lots of textiles.

Stratus Professional Steamer

Another vertical steamer, Stratus Professional Steamer is our sturdiest and most efficient steamer. It has the largest water tank of the bunch and it is the top choice for professionals in the fashion industry. The size of the water tank combined with its four steady wheels makes it the perfect steamer to use in a clothing store or backstage at a fashion show.

Handheld or vertical steamer

When choosing a steamer, you should assess your current and future needs and whether a handheld steamer, iron steamer, home steamer, or professional steamer is appropriate for you.

For instance, if you are looking for a lightweight and portable alternative that you can easily bring while traveling, a handheld steamer is probably the best choice. Or if you need a steamer with a larger water tank for professional use or for your walk-in closet, a vertical steamer (also called upright steamer) is ideal.
