What Are You Buying?

The Morphy Richards 720020 9-in-1 Steam Cleaner is a revolutionary, upright and handheld steam mop that has been gaining a ton of traction lately. Standing proud with its attractive light white colour scheme with green highlights, the cleaner quickly grabs your eye with its sleek appearance. But like I always say, good looks alone don’t get the job done.

The 720020 steamer does indeed come with all the elements required to give your entire home a thorough deep clean. Starting in the upright mode, users can clean sealed hard floors such as wood and vinyl and even refresh your carpets once in a while. And for things like upholstery, ovens, windows, kitchens, doors, bathrooms and other surfaces, it transforms into a handheld steamer with one simple push of a button.

I’m sure you can’t wait to hear about the functionality. At a power rating of 1500 W, you are guaranteed of a quicker heating time. All you have to do is wait for about half a minute and the steam will be ready to get to work.

Similarly, I enjoyed the convenience offered by the 400ml water tank capacity. I usually clean for about 10 minutes, so the 15 minutes of continuous steam is more than enough for me. But just how user-friendly is the 9 in 1 steam cleaner?

How Easy Is It To Use?

Don’t be fooled by all this talk of 9 in 1 functionality – the Morphy Richards 720020 Steam Cleaner is actually very user-friendly. I found it easy to grasp straight from the box. And the fact that it transforms from upright to a handheld with a single touch of a button makes operating it all the more easier.

However, I couldn’t help but frown on the weight. I’ve seen much lighter units before. So at a full 3 Kgs, the 720020 steam mop from Morphy Richards can get tiring if you clean for long periods. Fortunately, the cleaner’s floorhead is designed to manoeuvre easily around corners and tight spaces so that you can do some pretty quick cleaning.

Like many other steamers, the output is controlled by a nifty trigger smack dab on the handle that allows you to regulate the output of steam. This way, you can save on the water capacity without having to continuously steam everything and keep your floors and carpets from getting a thorough drenching.

However, this function only compounds to the arm fatigue. I also found the 400ml water tank easy to refill. All you have to do is detach it, refill it and replace it. And since it’s transparent, you can always monitor the level as you clean.

What Accessories Are Included?

Once you’re all decided on buying this mop, you can expect the following items in the box:

  • Morphy Richards 720020 9-in-1 Steam Cleaner
  • 2 microfibre floor cloths
  • Carpet glider
  • Upholstery attachment
  • Window cleaning attachment
  • Extension nozzle
  • Worktop surface attachment
  • Angled jet nozzle
  • Crevice brush
  • Plastic scraper
  • Round brush
  • Accessory bag
  • Instruction booklet

Pros

  • Nice design
  • Dual functionality at the push of a button
  • Extensive array of tools and attachments
  • Relatively fair price for the quality

Cons

  • Its performance on carpets is a bit dismal
  • Shorter power cord length might be a problem in large spaces

Anything Else You Should Know

I’m sure you’ve heard of those old-school steamers that you have wait until they cool before refilling (unless you want a face full of hot steam). Fortunately, the 9-in-1 Steam Cleaner from Morphy Richards comes with a separate holding for the cold water and steam. This allows you to refill the machine without waiting for even a second. Talk about continual, convenient and undisturbed steaming.

Conclusion

If you’re looking for a relatively affordable steam mop that offers the power of a standard upright mop and convenience of a handheld steamer, then the Morphy Richards 9 in 1 steam cleaner is more than an ideal partner. Sure, it may not be the best steam mop in the market, but it’s great for most cleaning tasks around the house. What more could you ask for in a mop?
