    as good as the full-size steamer, March 20, 2004

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I compared this travel model with the full-size J-2000 steamer. They were both very good at removing wrinkles from business-type clothing. We steamed a full week’s wardrobe, and the clothing done with the travel steamer looked just as good as the others. The only drawback to the travel model is related to its small size – it needs to be refilled every 3-6 garments, and the smaller steam head means that it takes longer to steam an item. However, I actually found that the small steam head worked better on small areas like collars and cuffs, especially since it has squared corners. The corners mean that you do have to be a bit careful with delicate knits, though. Worth the price if you really need to look your best when you travel.

    I compared this and the Rowenta DR5015 Ultra Steambrush side by side…, May 7, 2011

    My father bought the Rowenta locally and I tried it out. I’d been wanting an easy-to-use steamer so I checked Amazon. The Jiffy has gotten excellent reviews whereas the Rowenta has gotten ok reviews (most negatives are about durability.) I ordered the Jiffy and borrowed my Dad’s so I could compare them.

    First let me say that I want a quick and easy steamer mostly to get wrinkles out of Tshirts, shorts, jeans,button-downs etc that I didn’t take out of the dryer quick enough. I usually will not be steaming full suits,etc.

    The Rowenta is incredibly quick to heat up and start steaming. It literally takes about 30 seconds.
    The Jiffy takes about 3 minutes. That’s still fast but if you’re in a really big rush…

    When the Rowenta is heated up it basically just sits idle. I don’t think it’s losing any water while idle because there’s no steam coming out. When the Jiffy is heated up the water is literally boiling inside. You can see and hear it boiling. It constantly releases steam. The bad part about this is if you need to pause for a bit (answer phone, do something else…) then the water continues to get used up. In my case it was pumping out hot steam heating up the bathroom and fogging up the mirror. This brings me to one of the bigger complaints about the Rowenta-the water capacity. The Rowenta definitely holds less water than the Jiffy but I found the Rowenta to be more real-world convenient. 1) because it only releases steam only when you need it (you push the button) and 2) because the Rowenta heats up so fast the capacity isn’t much of an issue.

    Also, the Jiffy gets hot on the exterior-real hot. So it’s not that easy to refill quickly because you have to be careful not to burn yourself. After you’re finished using the Jiffy it’s too hot to put away. You have to leave it and let it cool down. When you’re steaming with the Jiffy it’s also easy to burn your fingers with the steam. If you don’t keep it perfectly upright it leaks easily and the drops really burn you. If you get yourself with the steam you say, “OW!”. If you get yourself with the drops you say, “OW S%&*!!, son of a…!!”

    The Rowenta doesn’t get very hot on the exterior. If you steam your fingers it doesn’t really hurt. I also made a dumb mistake when first trying the Rowenta. I left it plugged in lying on top of some clothing for a couple hours. Of course I don’t recommend this but nonetheless it wasn’t that hot and the clothes it was lying on were in no apparent danger of burning. I believe you’re supposed to try and keep them both upright while steaming but sometimes you want to turn it to reach a spot. I don’t recall the Rowenta leaking when I did that. If it did, it wasn’t hot enough for me to remember.

    I’m sure many people consider the hotter steam of the Jiffy to be a plus over Rowenta but I didn’t find this to be the case. Yes the Jiffy is hotter but it just ‘boils’ steam out of the openings. The Rowenta is less hot but it ‘blasts’ the steam out when you push the button. The blasting effect seemed to almost, but not entirely, make up for the difference in heat. Also, the extra heat of the Jiffy made the clothing soggy so if you touched a part that you’d already steamed it would create new wrinkles. Touching the parts that you already steamed with the Rowenta didn’t really seem to create new wrinkles. I used both steamers on the same 3 pieces of clothing for about the same amount of time. I used the Rowenta on one side and the Jiffy on the other. I didn’t tell my wife which was which and asked her which looked better. They were all basically too close to compare.

    I have a toddler so there was definitely a safety issue for me. If she were to pull the cord and pull the Jiffy down on herself while on( or even 5-10 mins after you’ve unplugged it)she could be seriously injured and scarred. If she were to pull the Rowenta down it probably wouldn’t be a big issue.

    So I ordered a Rowenta for myself and am sending the Jiffy back. I’m not saying the Jiffy is a bad piece of equipment, it just isn’t quick and easy like the Rowenta. I feel as if I needed something that performs like the Jiffy I’d rather just get an upright steamer.

    In summary, the Rowenta is safer, quicker, and easier– for my purposes anyway. It’s also cheaper. Only time will tell about the durability.

    I just wanted to update you guys since it’s been awhile.

    My experience has been about the same as above. This steamer is awesome for T-shirts, cargo shorts, regular shorts, button down dress shirts, polo shirts,etc. It works on jeans but is not as efficient and when you have heavy creases in a pair of jeans it can take a refill for two.

    I have not had any trouble with my steamer. I don’t use it all the time but quite a bit. Sometimes I won’t use it for 3 weeks and sometimes I…

    Jiffy E Steam, May 12, 2009

    Mary (California) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    Sooo I bought a bunch of curtains for my new apartment that was sorely lacking window treatments. Boy was that expensive – and I bought the $25 type panels at Target. But $25 x 20 for all the windows in the living room and dining room added up to a lot of $.

    They looked great except they were horribly wrinkled from being wrapped up into cute little squares for shipment. And some of the curtains were so wrinkled that they weren’t long enough to touch the floor.

    I could have washed them, but washing curtains is the fastest way to damage them. So I figured it’d be worth it to buy a steamer.

    It was.

    This steamer heats up in about 2.5 – 3 minutes and it holds 8 oz of water. That might not sound like a lot but it was enough to steam 3 54″ wide and 84″ long panels at a time. Then I’d just refill and wait a few minutes and start up again. The wrinkles relaxed, and the curtains look like a million bucks and yeah, they touch the floor now.

    What else came in the package besides the steamer? Well since it’s a travel steamer it came with a converter and a ton of adapters for travel. I don’t know all the adapters but from my travel experience you can take this baby to the UK, anywhere in Europe that has the 2 prong round adapter, Japan, and India. Of course this will work all over North America so feel free to go adapter-less in Canada and Mexico. I haven’t been all over the world so I don’t know where the other adapters would work. They all came neatly packed with the converter in a little zipper pouch.

    As far as the ironing vs steaming debate, well they aren’t the same thing. One does not replace the other. I see a steamer as being good for removing wrinkles from unstructured or softly structured items. The sleeves of a jacket, a skirt or a dress. This isn’t what you’d use on knife pleats or a stiff collar. It’s perfect for relaxing wrinkles if you are on say, a cruise or maybe you took some things out of storage and need them to look less crushed.

    Overall I’m really happy with this. So why only 4 stars? Well the body of the steamer is a cylinder and the way they made it was via injection molding. So there is a seam that catches on loose knits and woven fabrics. On the satiny swags I bought? No catching. But on the nappy brocade curtains? They got snagged a few times. You can avoid snags by being sure to keep only the nozzle touching the fabric rather than the cylinder shaped body. But that’s pretty hard to avoid.
