Is The Rapid Steam 2000 A Product Worth Owning? Here Is Everything You Need To Know.
In a world where we believe ‘first impressions are the last’, appearances mean everything. One thing most of us tend to overlook is the crease on our clothes. No matter how much we dress up, if our clothes are not neatly pressed, we tend to look shabby. But where is the time? Dropping off the clothes at the laundry is a time-consuming process, and since you are in a rush every morning, picking up the iron always seems like a huge task. Not to forget, adjusting the setting each time, and dealing with the fear of burning cloth! What if there was a magic wand that would remove the crease from our clothes in no time? What if we could carry it around everywhere without anyone noticing? Well, the good news is, there is one such ‘magic wand’ of sorts – the Rapid Steam 2000. But, like all things, is this just another product with empty promises? Well, let’s find out.
What It Promises
The Rapid Steam 2000 claims to be India’s best electronic garment steamer. It is fast, effective, and efficient and takes only 25 seconds to build the steam and less than two minutes to steam away the crease on your clothes. The best part – no water spills and no burnt clothes.
The Rapid Steam 2000 is beautiful to look at. Its German design gives it a sleek, classy look. The body is white, with a transparent turquoise catchment area for water. The device can hold up to 100 ml of water and even with the water, it is very light. The device itself is small and portable, and it gives you great ease of use. You can literally get rid of creases in every corner. It has just one simple switch that helps you turn it on or off. The steam area is in a lovely aqua blue color that is very soothing to the eye. As promised, the device heats up in about 20 seconds and gives 10 minutes of high steam pressure. There is a charging port below the handle that allows you to charge the device with ease as and when required.
What The Rapid Steam 2000 Does
To begin with, the built-in NANO Polymer Filter purifies the water and softens it. This prolongs the life of the device and reduces the calcium deposits.
The Heat Sync technology helps the device to heat up in a matter of 25 seconds. It also gives out dry steam – which means no damp clothes. It also means a stronger wave of heat to remove the more stubborn creases.
The Rapid Steam 2000 also comes with an inbuilt EPS (electronic pump system) that prevents water spills.
My Experience With The Rapid Steam 2000
As soon as I read about the device, I had to buy it. Since I have a bit of OCD, I am extremely particular about my clothes being neatly pressed. Priced at INR 4999, it definitely doesn’t come cheap, but having said that, its other features are impressive, and no other device can give you all of that.
It is light (about 600 grams) and portable and, more importantly, safe. I don’t hesitate to carry it along wherever I go, even if I have to take it to work or have a party to attend later. It is chargeable and gets fully charged within a few hours – I usually leave it to charge overnight. It has a voltage of 220-240V and a power of 850W. The charging cable is 6.5 feet long, which allows me to plug it in anywhere.
Coming to the ironing part, I actually crumpled a top of mine, such that it was extremely untidy, and it took me all of a minute and a half to get it back to normal. Although every part of the top was neatly ironed out, unlike the iron, which comes with a larger surface area, I had to go over every single bit of the top because the surface area of the steamer is much smaller. But considering how neat my top was, it was totally worth it. Just make sure you do not iron your clothes while they are on you as the steam gets quite hot.
Well, I am absolutely impressed! And considering how worried I was about shelling out 5000 bucks, I am ecstatic with my buy. This is a product that India totally needs, and I am so glad it is here. I am sure you are going to love the Rapid Steam 2000 too. It comes with a one-year warranty, and a 30-day money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with it. This is a win-win situation for anyone who wants to try it.
All in all, the device delivers what it promises, and it will not be long before every household owns one. I’d give it a 9/10.
