      yes yes! my mummy wants a steamer too!

      checked out tangs, but did not see the price though. probably in the hundreds, but rather convenient way to iron clothes?

      anybody using it? and how much did yours cost?

      i think osim mermaid is able to do that but rather expensive

              My bf's mom just got one (steamer) and 'ironing' has never been so fun. It's less time-consuming too.

              I'm not sure how much it costs but I can always get the details

                  Bf's mom bought from Tangs and it's the same brand Novita. Not too sure how much it costs but bf said it's $300 plus. Not sure if he's right with the figures though. Shall check with my bf's mom again.

                  There's nothing to complain about this steamer...yet (to be fair). Like I said, ironing has never been easier as you can do away with the ironing board. I hate to iron clothes as you have to 'arrange' the clothes nicely before u iron and those irritating wire that gets in the way. With this, just hang and 'steam' away.

                    Ya, i'm sure this is a better way to iron clothes. 300++ is too expensive for me, i will consider if is 100+, probably ask for wholesale price??

                      My friend is eyeing on the one from Philips I think in CK Tang but it costs around $600!!!!! She is also interested in the one near the escalator in CK tang, which is $1000+

                      I have been trying hard to discourage her. She only needs an iron! There is no need to spend that much $ on it.

                        I'm planning to buy a steamer too. My neighbour bought the cheaper version steamer at the price of about $200+, she told my mum she regrets spending the money, it's not as easy to iron as what we saw on tv ads.

                          Oh but why is it not as easy to iron? I thought that we just need to hang the piece of clothing and sweep the steamer across?

                            I don't really like steamers. If you get a cheap one, the plastic coil might melt due to the boiling temperature of the steam. If you let the steamer on for some time, steams may accumulate on the steamer head and when you handle it, might scald your hand. That happened when I used a cheapo one while having my attachment. I must agree that they are much much mroe convenient than using conventional irons. My advise is to take a look at various brand and then get the SA to let you try out a sample one to see if you are comfortable handling it. Some comes with very long coil and you will have difficulty in moving the whole steamer and having the coil caught in your arm when you are steaming. Some with wheels that doesn't really work on different kinds of floorings. Check also how the coil is attached to the steamer base, the worse thing that can happen is to steam your clothes halfway and the coil comes out. hth.

                              artichoke, thank you for your tips!

                              Looks like I'm not the only one that doesn't like ironing! I always thought that how well the steamers work depend on the steam temperature & pressure? The cheapest ones I've seen are $298 I think so I'm not sure if those do a good job. I know that the commercial steamers (sold to boutiques & dept stores) are well over $500
