Cleaner did the job but was quite noisy and the side door compartments for tools kept falling open. The first problem was with the hose, it broke on the second use. The steamer was replaced, after approximately ten uses the body started to leak water. My money was refunded, will never buy this brand again. (read more)

I had a small steam cleaner that died after great use so I decided to get the Vax S5 Kithchen and Bathroom model. I have used it every day since. On my car the pressure of the steam blew out the gunk that gets into the tiny spaces around the door sills, cleared off the brake dust on the alloy wheels and the algae on the wipers. I park under a tree and sap can be a problem, but not any more. I then used it in the kitchen. White tiles and grout are now white again, the back door through... (read more)

My first VAX S5 lasted all of a 3 weeks before I sent it back! It leaked terribly from the bottom leaving puddles everywhere. It was replaced, I started using it again and the same thing started to happen again so I put it in a cat litter tray to drag it around without water all over the floor. When the VAX gets hot over long use the doors will not close, the hose gets itself in a horrid twist and the i found that the whole experience frustrating. Refilling once the chamber is empty can be... (read more)

Vax S5 Kitchen and Bathroom Master Steam Cleaner
I am really impressed with this. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a steam cleaner.
When I took it out of the box, I was surprised at how small it was - it measures approximately 26w x 26h x 21d(cm), but what surprised me even more was how much power such a small machine had!
It comes with lots of different good quality accessories including a detail nozzle, brushes, a window attachment and more that are all stored neatly within the... (read more)

I needed a more powerful (yet still fairly compact) steam cleaner after my handheld failed on a few jobs.
Thw Vax S5 ticked all the boxes and price wise appeared quite reasonable - so I got one.
Once you've finished unpacking the box (there are numerous accessories) the first thing that strikes you is the nice compact size of thw unit. It comes on wheels, which has proved invaluable for mobility with room size jobs.
Its certainly light enough to move from the floor to a worktop if thats... (read more)

I must say I was impressed with this little steam cleaner! Lightweight and compact the onboard tool storage makes it easy to store and keeps everything in one place. Very versatile with lots of different attachments to use all around the house, not just the kitchen and bathroom.
Fairly easy to set up, although the removal of the cap to the water tank takes a couple of attempts first time, but the water lasts for ages!
The Vax Kitchen & Bathroom Master worked brilliantly on the heated... (read more)

The lean green cleaning machine!
The S5 is a compact but powerful model with an accessory for every cleaning job around the house (see product details). This was my first steam cleaner so I had high expectations and a very dirty house. The instructions were fairly straightforward, although it is worth being patient when unpacking all the bits and working out how to operate. Everything excluding the carpet cleaner and extension tubes can be attached to the main unit for storage which is... (read more)

Vax S5 Steam Cleaner.
This little machine is marvellous. It comes with loads of accessories to enable you to clean the smallest area up to carpets and upholstery. The instructions are fairly basic but easy to follow. Maybe a little more information could be included to explain things like how close you hold the nozzle to the object to be cleaned and how long you hold it there for and what results you might be able to achieve etc. Probably just for first time users of a steam machine! The... (read more)

Attractive Design & Light to carry so easy to manouvre around my small kitchen & bathroom. With It's various tools & simple set up instructions it did not take me long to get started with the tasks in hand. I connected the appropriate tool. After several minutes waiting the Green light showed me the Steamer was ready to use. I started with the cooker, I found it to be most satisfactory in removing the grease & burnt on areas which I removed with the scaper tool. I used it on kitchen work... (read more)

I've been looking to buy a steam cleaner for some time - having been seduced by all the teleshopping adverts on late at night! The Vax S5 certainly seems to offer everything that anybody could want with a large capacity tank that steams for up to 30 minutes and all necessary tools included with the machine.
My first thoughts about the S5 were surprise that it was quite so large and more surprise that it was quite so heavy. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone who struggles with an... (read more)

I have seen demonstrations of steam cleaners previously and bought two in the past, but they were quickly banished to the back of the garage, but then I tried the VAX S5 kitchen and bathroom master and it has certainly changed my mind. There are several attachments and storage for the smaller ones is ideal as these normally just 'get lost'. The window cleaning attachment is certainly my favourite, a job I normally hate because once the sun shines there are all the streaks and missed bits,... (read more)
