Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TB For grout .....
Purchased mainly to clean tile floor grout without scrubbing. Steamer did a fairly good job but this was in kitchen therefore some of the stains in the grout remained. Would I recommend? Yes. This can be used for a wide variety of cleanning jobs. Did a great job throughout rest of house floors.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Eddie Ewbank Steam Dynamo Cleaner SC1000 is a Dud.
This machine does not deliver steam. I used a cooking thermometer to measure the temperature of the vapor exiting the gun, several times, and it ranged from 114-119 degrees Fahrenheit. The pressure is exhausted after 1 minute - every time. Then it takes 1 minute to build up pressure again. Mostly, it just squirts warm water. I bought it to clean grout, and it won't. I am going to return it today.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RCSimGuy Steam Dynamo Cleaner - Impressive
I waited until I had used the Steam Dynamo Cleaner on a few different projects and surfaces before writing this. Projects so far;
Cleaning laptop components after liquid spill (disassemble, thorough steam cleaning, one week drying period, reassemble, success). It worked very well for this usage
Cleaning tiles, works great for grout and tile surfaces
Engine cleaning, this is a slow process but is possible (I'm used to high pressure steam cleaners for that)
Overall I'm very happy with this purchase.
If I must list cons to this it would be as follows
Short steam time, while the tank holds enough water for 45minutes of use, the heating element takes some time to get to temperature and then, after about 50-75 seconds of continual use, the heating element comes on again and for a short time you may end up with a water stream and not steam (I counter this by wiping and cleaning while the heating element is reheating - it works out)
I had read about the brushes being fragile so I use them sparingly and then I make sure not to apply too much pressure, none have come apart so far. I did discover that some scrubbing brushes (one a tire brush, the other a non-descript hand brush) cannot handle the heat of the steam cleaner (they melted) so that's something to be aware of
