We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Vacuuming, dusting, and so on are all fine for day-to-day cleaning, but when you've got a tough mess to deal with, you'll want something more heavy-duty — like one of these canister steam cleaners. They use heated water to quickly break down dirt, grease, and grime, saving your time and energy for more enjoyable activities. Just note that they can't be used on delicate items, like silk. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best canister steam cleaner on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 06, 2018: Selected two McCulloch models, the Heavy Duty and the Deluxe, with the former being better for day-to-day use and the latter for more intense jobs. Looked at Dupray models, adding the One despite its high price tag, as it provides a hotter steam than a lot of the competition.
