J-2000 Jiffy Garment Steamer with Plastic Steam Head, 120 Volt

Looks can be deceiving, which is true with the J-2000 Jiffy Garment Steamer with Plastic Steam Head. The steamer doesn’t create a very influential first impression as it’s not futuristic or modern looking. Though the steamer looks rather retro, it gives the same power and performance a top-model steamer does.

It offers 1300 W of steaming power and its water tank has a 3/4 gallon capacity for easy and continual steaming of garments for an hour and a half instead of spending time and effort ironing clothes. It also needs just two minutes to heat up which means you are provided with instant access to all its steaming capabilities.

Design

The J-2000 has a simple and straightforward design with its tank at the bottom of the unit. It’s connected to a flexible steam hose which may leak but performs well. This extra large tank proves helpful while steaming all your garments at a go.

Functionality

The highlight of this steamer is its 6” steam head as it makes steaming clothes both at home and in business establishments so effortless. It’s possible to steam and remove wrinkles from most fabrics and clothes ranging from shirts and pants to blazers, tablecloths, bedclothes and even delicate materials without any problems. It can also be used to remove wallpaper, if required. Unlike irons, there isn’t any need of setting temperatures while using the J-2000 to steam clothes.

Parts

The J-2000 Jiffy steam cleaner is easy to carry around because of its wheels. Moreover, it heats quickly within 2 minutes’ time and a full water tank gives 90 minutes of steaming power.

The tank also has a no-drip checking valve which helps restricts drips and thus prevents messes. The steamer comes with a 5.5 foot flexible hose with a plastic head and steam handle.

Power

As steamers need lots of power, the J-2000 garment cleaner offers 1300 watts of power through its solid brass heating elements. The machine needs only 2 minutes to start steaming so that you can start steaming in the shortest time possible with sufficient steam to quickly steam garments.

Body

The steamer has high impact plastic outer casings which prove essential at protecting its internal parts from possible destruction. Its automatic shut off feature and pronged safety grounded cords reduce the chances of fire through a convenient off/on switch. With its extended cord and 5.5 ft hose, there’s no need of staying in one place while steaming clothes.
