PurSteam’s 10-in-1 steam mop has upwards of 26,000 five-star Amazon ratings, offering a simple, chemical-free cleaner at an attractive price point. It’s lightweight; safe for pets and children; and does well on carpet, glass, hardwood, and tile.

It’s got a smaller reservoir than more heavy-duty steam cleaners, however, so the main compromise is that it only runs for about 20 to 25 minutes at a time. Users love the grout tool, handheld mode, and overall ease of use.

Pros

  • Handles carpet, glass, hardwood, and tile

  • Ready to use in just 30 seconds

  • Weighs 2.2 pounds

Cons

  • Runs for about 25 minutes at a time

Bissell’s handheld SteamShot is enormously popular with shoppers, though it’s a smaller cleaner with a low-capacity tank. The tradeoff is that because it’s got a 6.6-ounce reservoir, you can heat it up and be cleaning in about 30 seconds after refilling.

It comes with scrubbing brushes, a grout tool, a scraper, and an angled attachment for reaching tricky areas. Users found the cleaning power impressive, though it may only last for 10 or 12 minutes at a time.

Pros

  • Includes a variety of handy accessories

  • Ready to use in just 30 seconds

  • Plenty of cleaning power

Cons

  • Runs for 10 to 12 minutes at a time

  • 6.6-ounce reservoir
