If you regularly travel for business or pleasure, then one of the things that you are definitely going to need to take with you is an iron. Wrinkled clothes can be an absolute nightmare, especially if you are trying to look professional. However, often an iron simply won’t do the job.

If you have found that this is the case for you, then it might be time to invest in a garment steamer. These devices are specifically designed to allow you to press your clothes whenever you need to. They are especially beneficial for those who travel regularly.

Of course, choosing the best garment steamers isn’t exactly straightforward, especially if you don’t really know what it is that you should be looking for. In order to help you choose a garment steamer, we have tested and reviewed some of the best. Please read on below for more information.

3. Excelvon Garment Steamer

Features: 1800w – 3 Steam Levels – 1.5L Tank – 38 Minutes of Continuous Steam – Suitable for Any Garments – Telescopic Pole – 6.54kg

Pros:

  • 3 different steam levels so you control the power.
  • Very good amount of continuous steam.
  • Telescopic pole makes steaming easier.

Cons:

  • It isn’t great for pressing shirts.

The Review

The first model that we wanted to add to our list as a potential candidate for the best garment steamer is this one from Excelvon. This garment steamer is a little different to most of the others that we have tested, so we were quite intrigued by the design.

The first thing that we really liked about this one is that it has a telescopic pole. This made steaming clothes so much easier as we were able to hang them from the pole whilst steaming. We also really liked the fact that there are 3 different steam levels to choose from which was particularly beneficial when we steamed more stubborn fabrics.

We were also impressed by the amount of continuous steam that you get. We were able to get around 38 minutes of steam each time we filled the tank which is actually quite a lot compared to some of the other models that we tested. We tried steaming multiple types of fabrics and the one that we did have issues with was shirts.

We found that this garment steamer wasn’t really effective in this case. However, for a steamer that can be taken with you on your travels and the amount of steam that you get per tank, we would definitely recommend it.

2. Jiffy Travel Steamer

Pros:

  • Very easy to use thanks to the basic design.
  • Very lightweight.

Cons:

  • Quite expensive for such a basic design.
  • There is no adjustable steam level.

The Review

Given that garment steamers are mainly used by those who travel frequently, we wanted to see if we could find the best travel garment steamer and we settled on this model from Jiffy. What we really liked about this one is the basic design. There are no complicated menus to navigate and it is very easy to use.

Another plus point with this steamer is the weight of it. At only 998g, it is incredibly lightweight which meant no extra luggage weight and also meant that it was much easier to use for longer periods of time. Although you only get 15 minutes of continuous steam with this one, we still found that this was plenty enough time to steam an entire outfit.

There were a couple of drawbacks with this steamer that are worth mentioning. First of all, we felt that it was a little expensive considering it is such a basic design. As well as this, we felt that it was a shame that there is only one steam level to choose from. If it was adjustable it would be much better. However, it is ideal for those who need something lightweight that is good for traveling with.

The Review

This Fridja garment steamer takes the number one slot on our list of the best garment steamers today. There are so many positive points that we felt that it definitely earned its place. The first thing that we really liked was how quickly the steamer heats up to produce steam. It was much faster than any of the others that we tested.

As well as this, we were very impressed with the quality of the construction of this steamer. It feels very durable indeed. With 14 minutes of continuous steam, we were easily able to steam an entire outfit and this was only improved by the power of this steamer at 1500w.

At only 900g, this steamer was very lightweight and easy to use and we didn’t have to worry about any extra weight in our luggage. One of the features that we really liked with this garment steamer was the anti calc feature. This prevents any build-up of lime scale and makes keeping the steamer clean very easy indeed.

Although this garment steamer is a little more on the expensive side, we definitely felt that it was worth the extra money and we would highly recommend it to anyone who travels regularly and needs to keep their clothes pressed.
