Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by boomermom A lifesaver for stubborn wallpaper past
I'm sorry that I've never considered this purchase before. In the spring, I took down wall paper on my own, following all of the hints on line - hot vinegar, scoring first, downy, patience patience patience. This time I'm battling a border installed over paint on drywall - all properly prepared in the first place (I put it up). However, border tends to curl, so on the advice of a friend, I also used wallpaper paste. After two days of scraping, I gave up and bought this steamer. It melts the glue. It also tends to melt the paint, and one must be careful to avoid keeping it in the same spot for longer than suggested. I can fix the paint - can't paint over the glue. I recommend this product completely. Oh, it's lightweight, has a long range as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by marysneedz Very good performance
It performed admirably. If I compare scoring the paper and using this product as I peel and scrape - to scoring the paper and misting with vinegar water and peeling and scraping -- the Wagner is the Winner!
I will say that if you keep the steam pad in one place too long (>15 seconds) the heat from the steamer seems to re-cook the paper on - in other words, the steamer initially gives water to the paste - but if allowed to stay there too long, the paste loses some of the water infused (evaporates due to heat). So you must develop a good technique for your wallpaper type.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bassman Easy and effective
Even though the product works great, don' t expect that the wallpaper and backing will come off in one easy step - even if you perforate the paper before steaming. You will have to do two passes in most spots to get everything down. What is great is that you can use a plastic spatula-type tool and get the paper, backing & eventually glue off the wall without damaging the underlying drywall. THAT means very little need to repair and/or skim coat the walls after getting the paper down. A huge savings in time & $$$. This steamer is the way to go to get wallpaper down!

I needed to strip wallpaper off three large bedroom. It was "paper" wallpaper, almost impossible to remove with just water. I didn't want to use any chemical products, so a friend of mine recommended this steamer. I was a little skeptic at first, but once I put it to work, I realized what godsend invention this was. Sure, stripping wallpaper is still a tedious messy job. But this little fella will make it much easier and less stressful. I also did a second pass to remove the extra glue that was still on the walls, and then washed them with water and fabric softener. Walls were squeaky clean and ready to paint in no time.

Comes out of the box easy to put together. Works like a charm on the wall. Super long hose and cord. Makes removing wallpaper much easier than anticipated. Be sure to get the 4 inch razor blade scraper.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bill Wallpaper Steamer okay
Takes a while to heat up but once it is ready to go it works pretty well. Surprised how long it lasts before having to refill the tank. If you are doing a big room, it may be better to rent a commercial grade unit.
