    Golden Review Award: 15 From Our UsersEasy to assemble.
    The diagram could have been a little more informative but none the less I figured it out easily enough.
    Comes with a limescale protector for the water bottle.
    Each piece clips into place securely. The plastic all seems strong and durable.
    There is a green light to let you know when it is ready to use. Which is nice, bright and obvious.
    The cord is long, a really great length. This has an allocated slot on the mop to keep it tangle free and neat and tidy.
    The on/off buttons are easily seen and recognisable.

    I didn’t quite understand the instructions at first but I figured it out.
    When you plug in, turn on and wait for the red light to turn green.
    When it does, hold the pincher under the handle in for 30 seconds and then it will start to work. Continue to hold to use.
    The top of the steam mop are up and down arrows to help you choose which steam level you would need or prefer. Low, medium and high.
    I used the highest amount for dirty corners like the picture and then I went over the whole floor with the least amount.
    When first removing the worst bits of grime it did initially leave two murky smears but then I went once over again and they disappeared.
    This didn’t take long to dry.
    This left my floor absolutely sparkling. You wouldn’t even consider it was only water that cleaned it.
    I love the fact that I no longer have to buy floor cleaners.
    There is some weight in the mop at the top. Yet it still glides easily without much effort needed.
    This does not stand freely. I honestly think if they added some sort of stand for perfect storage then this would make this product ideal for me.
    I do think this proves itself to why it is in the higher price range of steam mops. It’s easy to assemble, 30 seconds prep, only needs water, led light, multifunctional buttons and it has effortless glide.
    However, it does seem quite expensive for what it is but personally I think long term, with its durability and warranty, you will actually be saving money from buying floor cleaning products.
    I would definitely recommend, I do think it’s quite brilliant. Perfect quick and easy.

    Perfect, quick and easy solution to sparkling floors!

    Golden Review Award: 11 From Our UsersI have always really wanted a Karcher Steam Cleaner , when I saw this I HAD to get it .
    I Ordered On Sunday evening and it arrived Monday delivered by Hermes . It came in an amazon Branded Cardboard Box .
    Opening the box you find the Karcher Branded Box which shows the SC3 on the front and on the back Instructions for putting it together .
    I was impressed by how easy it was to fit everything together .
    In the Box you get :The Handle , the Steam Unit , a Bottle and water descaling filter which fits inside a fluffy mop head and the bottom of the mop .
    To set it up you slip the handle into the body of the SC unit until you hear a click , open the water bottle and add the descaling filter fill with water then attach to the back of the unit . Attach the bottom of the mop and you’re ready to go .
    Plug the Steamer in and press the button on the handle to the floor surface you want to clean , you can choose from 3 settings then wait for the LED light to tell you that it’s reached optimum temperature , Press and hold the button inside the handle and mop away .
    The water takes about 30 seconds to heat , it’s fast and leaves the floor very clean . It states that it cleans up to 99.9% of Bacteria . I am using this Karcher on my vinyl flooring in my hallway which my dogs get dirty with mud and fur and on my kitchen tiles . They have come up extremely clean, ( so much so it actually changed colour ) and it’s taken me far less time to complete the task that I would normally do with a spray mop .
    Karcher is a great name and well known for its steam cleaners , I think this is the best Steam Cleaning Mop and I highly recommend it . Yes it may be more expensive than some on the market but you have a warranty and Karcher aren’t going out of business anytime soon .

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersA review for Karcher SC 3 Upright EasyFix 15133010, Steam Mop, Yellow, 1600 W, 52 Decibeles.

    A very capable and powerful steam mop which is great to use. Assembly is easy easy and it should be ready to use in around 5 minutes, including filling and selecting the suitable settings. The upright design makes this effortless and quick to use to mop even large areas quicker. The powerful 1600W heater ensures quick heating up to operating temperature in around 30 seconds, the 3.5 bar pressure gives this a good level of pressure to make cleaning effortless. Comes with a 0.5 litre water tank capacity gives coverage of around 60 square metres. The 5m cable ensures a wide coverage area is possible from a single socket, since the whole unit weighs around 3kg means it isn’t overly heavy and cumbersome. Adjustable steam for different floor types of floor makes it a versatile steam mop. It is a little pricey for a steam mop however having used a variety of steam mops over the years, this beats every one of them hands down. Overall very powerful, practical and well built steam mop from Karcher, a premium price you get a great product.

    Golden Review Award: 5 From Our UsersThis gives impressive results on hard floors and really does clean using just water. The pros are that it’s quick and easy to assemble and heat up, and its cleaning power is outstanding; the cons are that the heaviness and the need to keep the switch pressed in may make it harder to use by older people. The lead is long but the very presence of a power lead is a bit of a nuisance if you’re used to a cordless vacuum cleaner.

    It’s also expensive: it feels sturdy and well-made and I like the results, but at a price.

    Golden Review Award: 4 From Our UsersI ordered the Karcher SC3 upright steam mop for cleaning a mixture of floors in my house. The unit has a mode selection switch for the following modes:
    Tiled Floor
    Wooden Floor
    Carpeted Floor
    Each setting adjusts the steam output of the mop to suit the cleaning of each surface.
    Putting the unit together was easy, very intuitive design, I didn’t really need the instructions — although I checked just in case!
    My previous steam mop packed in after a year or so but I notice this unit comes with a water filter so this will prevent limescale building up and give the unit a longer life.
    Once plugged in you push the power on button to start the unite. There is a light at the front which changes from red to green when steam is available, then you just push the trigger button and push the mop along the surface to be cleaned.
    The first surface I used it on was a tiled floor, the shine on the floor afterwards told the whole story, the mop cleaned the floor perfectly.
    The unit worked well on the wooden floor too which uses the least steam output.
    What I was most surprised about was how well the carpet came out after a once over from the mop, a really noticeable difference.
    See attached photos and videos of the mop in use and some before and after photos.
    Overall, I found the unit very easy to use and it cleaned surfaces brilliantly.

    Note: I accidentally left the carpet attachment on when using on hard floors once and it still cleaned them really well!

    Excellent steam mop

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersThis steam cleaner comes well packaged and needs to be put together, which is simple and the instructions are good. The tank only hold 500ml of water and the water softener cartridge, but this was enough to do my whole downstairs laminate flooring.

    The Karcher water softener can be set to four different levels, so should work with even very hard water. I have not had it long enough to know how long the cartridge lasts.

    It also has different levels of steam for laminate, carpet and tiles. The water unit attaches to the hand unit of the cleaner, but it is still quite light.

    I found that this worked really well on the laminate flooring and the carpet without leaving a them wet, or indeed much more than slightly damp.

    I found this to be the easiest steam cleaner I have used and I have tried quite a few over the years.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersTo be honest , at first it took me quite a while to figure out the instructions. It could have been a bit clearer. But once put together it is great. Very quick heat up time. Easy to fill. There is a anti limescale cartridge so that should prolong the life of the cleaner. It is very effective, cleaning as it says with only tap water and it is good to know that with the steam the germs are killed too and it really loosens the dirt and doesn’t take much effort.The handle is a good long length so it is easy on your back. It also reaches well under furniture. You will have to purchase more cloths (around 15 each) I think. It does come with one, but it would be good to have a replacement cloth for when one is in the washing machine. Also the replacement anti calc cartridge costs around 14 and I don’t know how long it will last with lots of use. That being said, for an environmentally friendly cleaning system for the house without the use of chemicals this is worth it when you consider how much you might have spent on spray floor cleaners etc.
    I haven’t yet tried it to refresh rugs with it as I am not sure that you should really steam wool rugs in case they get felted and the fibres shrink but I will investigate that one. But for hard floor cleaning – excellent.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersFor those that don’t have a steam floor cleaner, they are great pieces of kit, especially if you have pets or children. You always feel the floor is surgically clean and without the use of chemicals. This cleaner looks typically Karcher with its distinguishing yellow livery. The unit is lightweight as these things go, and very simple to use. It doesn’t use detergent like our old one, but I have always questioned the need. This works fine without. It has a removable and machine washable pad. When you look at the colour of it after use, you can see how much it picks up. You simply fill it with water, turn it on, and wait for it to heat up (less than a minute) and away you go. The head is fairly flexible, so it is easy to get under tables etc. It also comes with an attachment that allows it to be used on a carpet, but I haven’t needed to try that yet. With onboard cords storage, it doesn’t take up much space for storage either.
    Simple, and does the job without fuss.

    Golden Review Award: 7 From Our UsersNot the lightest of cleaners but I like something that feels a little more sturdy when cleaning floors especially when the kids bring in loads of mud. Is ready to use in seconds. I have used on smooth and textured tiles and works great. I have even checked out the carpet glider, doesn’t clean the carpet but does leave them feeling fresh. I do plan on using a little more often on carpet so I don’t have to get them cleaned as often.

    As with all things Kracher a well made solid bit of kit. Relatively easy to assemble, the manual is mainly pictures with few words. It only ships with one pad, so worth buying a further set of 2, relatively expensive in my opinion but necessary. Three settings – simple to use and it works superbly.

    Leaves floors super clean and shiny .
    My only issue is the microfibre cloth not as absorbent as I would like.
    As I use for my cleaning business as well as
    Home I can thoroughly recommend this steamer (I’ve had quite a few different makes) This one best by far .

    I am very impressed with my purchase of the SC3. Arrived today, and was assembled within 2 minutes.
    Solid sturdy machine which to me means good build quality.
    I like the fact that this has a water filter, I have/had a ‘Vax’ floor steamer ( which is soon going to the tip ) the Vax was always leaking water which I worried about it being electric, it also used to clog up with scale!
    The SC3 is great, I am 100% happy!
    I have three dogs and two cats, I have just steamed my tiled floor, it was dry within minutes, and no paw prints and streak free!
    Highly recommend.

    I thought it was fine and 80 cheaper than Argos!!!!!!
    Could have had a wall hook to hang it on and just one mop head is a bit stingy.
    Other than those minor issues just what I wanted

    Delivery was changed twice which was very annoying , but very study . Heavier than my h20 so if you want light this is not for you . Instructions not good . But if I can sort it anyone can. So first use very impressed . Prefer this steamer to the h20 . I think for price they should put at least 3 cloths ,1 is not good enough . Let’s hope last for very long time .

    excellent steamer but disappointing that the machine will not stand alone.

  20. Joe Russell says:

     United Kingdom

    Golden Review Award: 12 From Our UsersThe appliance is easy to assemble and use. It’s powerful and quick once you’ve set it up correctly. The instructions could be improved on having the images on an extra fold-out, but this is standard across all Karcher products launched.

    A word of advice would be on first use, put it on the highest setting (tiles) to commission the limescale filter rapidly. The instructions state it should take 30 seconds but it is longer. The appliance ‘clicks’ as you depress the trigger/handle while it commissions the filter and water in the tank (fill it up), but as soon as the water is heated and steam is produced, the clicking will stop and you can use the appliance as normal.

    Make sure you set the correct settings for the right floor. When you switch it on it’ll always default to the highest (tiles), so press the switch on the handle at the top to make sure it’s on the lowest (wood floor) for laminate and wooden flooring otherwise you’ll have very wet patches from the steam.

    In summary, worth the price as I’ve got other Karcher products, all well-built and designed, that have lasted over the years and are durable. I’d expect the steam mop to follow suit.

    I had tried various hand mops on my kitchen floor that never seemed to clean properly. The Karcher is a sturdy machine with a long cable and takes a decent tank of water and with steam starting pretty quickly makes a decent job of cleaning a dirty kitchen floor. So far – pleased.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersHad 2x Shark steam mops over the years and they have both broken down so decided to go for Karcher S3 – hoping for solid German engineering. Simple to use – fill up, plug in and set power setting. Was a bit heavy compared to Shark, but solid build. Only small irritation is there is no obvious fill level on the tank. Apart from that – recommend.

    I had a very cheap beldray and the steam hot never left the floor wet and light (in weight) discontinued
    The Karcher is very heavy I just about manage to clean my kitchen I didn’t realise I had to hold the trigger to produce steam maybe I need to read operating instructions I imagine this steam mop will last a few years will persevere
