Great steamer - inaccurate description. Again...
"This steamer is powerful and quick to reach pressure, makes short work of wallpaper, but be sure not to use on unsealed plaster, it will remove that too.
If you peel the outer vinyl layer leaving the backing paper on the wall, apply the bubbles from soapy water to the paper and then steam, it comes off it sheets that you could almost use again.
However. I ordered this as the description states that it came with a host of nozzles and brushes which would make this a VERY versatile piece of kit. It does not. The picture is correct the written description from another product.
It contains 2x steaming plates and a pointless plastic scraper. If you're considering a steamer look at the Performance power range. They look VERY similar indeed... Even the packed by names on the contents are the same...
Very disappointing, not the first time I've encountered inaccurate descriptions from B&Q.
By the time you read this they may have corrected the error, maybe not."

Decent product
"The steamer itself works very well,however, we found the scraper to be quite poor. I'd suggest using something with sharper edge or you'll be making a lot of work for yourself.
A good scraper would give it 5 stars"

Just a Big Kettle
"Once you develop a good technique with this, you can take one roll of wallpaper cleanly off every 2-3 minutes or so. Can't say it is worth much more than cheaper model in the range but there was only a two quid differential when I purchased it."

Excellent value for money
"Last year we hired a stripper for about £30 and it was an industrial type so very expensive and we bought this thinking it probably would not be very good but it was absolutely amazing and if not better than the £300 plus model. Definitely recommend to anyone."

Good value steamer
"Excellent on wallpaper . Takes a bit of time to penetrate artex but once top layer is clear works well. Good value for money if you look after it"

Earlex wallpaper Stripper SS77
"The unit operates ok but if it tips on its side when you are using it the element burns out. The element is not replaceable and you will have to buy another steamer as Earlex will not cover this under the so called guarentee. Avoid. I will replace mine with a different brand. Hope this helps."
