The steam panel of the hand-held garment steamer is generally divided into three types: plastic panel, stainless steel panel, and ceramic panel. Compared with plastic panels, stainless steel panels are more resistant to high temperature and are not easily deformed, while ceramic panels are not only resistant to high temperature, but also smooth, non-stick, and scratch-resistant, but the cost is relatively high.
In terms of appearance design, there are various styles of garment steamers on the market, such as swan shape, hairdryer type, capsule type, and folding type. But the shape is not only beautiful, but also affects the actual use. The swan-shaped product has a larger water tank and can be used for a long time, but it is relatively heavy and belongs to the experts at home. On the other hand, garment steamers with a hairdryer or folding structure are generally light in weight and small in size, but their use time is relatively short, which is a must for travel.
In addition to considering the garment ironing machine itself, consumers should also consider the acceptance of clothes when purchasing. For example, cotton and linen clothes are suitable for high-temperature ironing (140-210°C); wool and silk need moderate temperature (100-160°C); chemical fiber and nylon do not need to be too high (70-120°C). Garment steamers with removable tanks are also easier to refill or clean.
