We have had the Polti for a little while because my husband had one in the past and loved it. I find that it takes long to heat and for a woman it is very tiring to use as you have to press on the button the whole time. I have small hands and they get so very tired..... We rent a house at the moment which has light gray tiles, I can say that although I thought they would look like new with this machine nothing is less true, the accummulated dirt doesn't disappear. Also the fact that you have to walk through the wet floor as you clean (you should be able to walk away from the wet surface) is not a good thing and you can't hold it upright like you would do with a vacuum cleaner. The iron is no better than a normal steam iron. Tried it on a carpet but it made no difference. A completely waste of money! I find that this is a machine that needs some more research.
