I’m always a fan of any steam machine that has the words heavy-duty right in its name, so it really shouldn’t be a surprise that I ended up becoming a fan of the McCulloch MC1275 Heavy-Duty Steam Cleaner. However, it’s not just the name of this McCulloch steam cleaner that impressed. No, I was also pretty smitten with its performance. Let me show you what I like about this machine.
When I first received it I realized that it wasn’t going to take a whole lot of time and effort to get this thing up and running. In just a few minutes, I had it all together and ready to go. I then proceeded to take a look at some of the accessories that came with it.
This machine comes with 18 accessories. This includes a mop head, a jet nozzle, a couple of brushes (brass and nylon), a triangular brush, a couple of mop pads and a fill cup. However, what it didn’t come with was a funnel – and that’s what I could’ve really used while I was adding water to this device. I managed to get the cleaner filled, although I was kind of sloppy about it. Yes, I definitely wish they would’ve included a funnel in their collection of accessories. Oh well, what can you do?
It took about ten minutes for this unit to bring the 48-ounces of water in its tank up to temperature. When it was completely hot and pressurized, I then took it for a little cleaning tour of my house to see just how well this unit cleans. And let me tell you, that’s where it really shined.
I took it into the bathroom and cleaned my shower door. I then turned it to the tiles and grout in my bathroom. Wow, did this machine really clean those areas up well. After I was done with those jobs, I then took it to the kitchen and cleaned my greasy oven racks. Right before my eyes, this machine powered though that grease.
I was so impressed with this unit that I decided to go ahead and take it outside. I cleaned my BBQ grill and then cleaned my husband’s truck. I steamed the engine block and even did the carpets inside the truck. This steam cleaner really does perform well.
Overall, I think I got about 45-minutes of steam cleaning out of this cleaner. I then had to let it cool down a bit before I could refill it. However, that’s not a problem because this machine really powered through the messes, so I got a whole lot done during those forty-five minutes of cleaning.
This steam cleaner is a great little canister that could handle a variety of different tasks. And while it isn’t the cheapest steamer I’ve bought, I also thought that it wasn’t too expensive either. To say that I think this is a great canister steam cleaner is an understatement. I would gladly recommend friends and family to buy it.
