I love my steam mop!
The only downside is that sometimes you cant get into all the small tight stops and corners.
I had a kenwood for about 9yrs and its just gone to heaven so I brough the Monster for $270. The monster is a bigger mop so covers the area quicker but I have noticed it is a little heavier to push than the kenwood but I am sure I only noticed it the first few times as I was used to the old one.
Never will I use a mop again..

I have the Kenwood 2000 (much better & bigger water tank than the 5000). Costs about $139 from Retravision but also on sale at Harvey Norman, etc.
I LOVE my steam mop. I use it every day on both polished boards & tiles. We have an inside dog, so he is part of the reason. Like someone else said, it won't clean in the grout, so I go around and scrub that once a week or so. I don't find it hard to push at all. I do use an extension cord as the cord is quite short. A full tank of water gives about 20 minutes of floor washing time, which is enough for three bedrooms, lounge/dining, kitchen, bathroom and laundry.
I hope this helps. I wouldnt use a traditional mop ever again. It is one of the best things I ever bought!

we have a kenwood multi steam cleaner which does a number of different surfaces (tiles, carpet, fabric etc).
I hate it. You have to hold a button down to get it to steam and it is so difficult to keep it held down that I end up with an aching hand just trying to keep it pushed in. Also, because you need to steam to actually clean and I cant keep the button pressed in to make it steam, I really am just running hot water over the tiles. I hardly ever use it.
On the odd occasion I do drag it out, its usually to run over a spot on the carpet or give the cushions/couch a bit of a clean....so it gets used about twice a year.
In theory it sounds good, however in practice it's a pain to use.

I have a question for you Steam-Mop-affectionadas:
I know that you not supposed to use soap, etc in the water, but is it possible to "live on the edge" and put a drop or two of lemon myrtle or eucalyptus oil in the water? Just for that fresh scent?

I have the $36 one from godfreys and I love it!!! It's steams when you push down on it and I would never use a normal mop again. I'm heartbroken that I won't be able to use it on our vinyl plank flooring in our new house so I'll be getting an enjo mop when we move in.

The best thing was when I moved into a rental property and mopped v-e-r-y slowly, with multiple passes under the stove/oven. The oil that had accumulated on the floor for probably years and years came off no worries, and there were no steaks as I continued to mop the kitchen. THIS is why it is sooooo good!
