When we buy a garment steamer, we must first look at the liner of the garment steamer. Now there are more than 4 kinds of inner liner on the market, plastic inner liner, aluminum inner liner, copper inner liner, and stainless steel inner liner. At this stage, the more mainstream inner tank materials are the remaining three. The steam pressure in the aluminum inner tank and the copper inner tank is relatively small, and it is easy to hide dirt and dirt, so the stainless steel inner tank is the best choice. The steam pressure of the stainless steel liner is relatively high, and it is not easy to hide dirt in the liner, and the price is relatively cheap. Regarding panels, the market is generally divided into plastic panels, stainless steel panels, and ceramic panels. Plastic panels are not resistant to high temperature and are easily deformed. The advantages of stainless steel panels are that the panels are not easily deformed, sturdy and durable, and can achieve the best ironing effect, which is the most popular. The ceramic panel is resistant to high temperature, smooth and non-stick, and scratch-resistant, effectively blocking the corrosion of steam and acid and alkali, and is also easy to clean, but the process is complicated and the cost is high. We can choose according to our economic conditions.
In addition, there are different forms of garment steamers to choose from.
The advantage of the hand-held garment steamer is that it is small and flexible, does not take up space, and is even more portable. It can be carried when traveling or on a long-term business trip, and it will not take up too much luggage space, but the disadvantages are also obvious. That is, the effect of ironing is not very good, and the life of the machine is also short, but it is also very practical for people who travel a lot.
Ordinary garment ironing machines generally use the principle of steam heating to iron clothes. The steam pressure and flow rate are relatively small, but the steam temperature at the air outlet is relatively high. The effect is more obvious for silk and chemical fiber clothes, but the effect of ironing heavy clothes But it's not very good, and it takes repeated ironing to get the effect.
The pressure type garment steamer generally uses a water pump to pump water. At the same time, the closed design of the heater makes the steam pressure and flow rate larger. Even heavier clothes can be ironed flat.
