We reviewed the Vapamore MR-75 Amico last month, but I didn’t have my good camera with me during the first hands-on. Now, we have a bit more time with the steamer, and I’ve managed to take a few decent pictures to go with the revisiting. Without further ado, here’s Round 2 with Vapamore’s $99 wonder, the Amico:
The Amico comes with seven brushes, a smooth surface squeegee, a detail scraper, three cotton covers, and a carrying case. Larger steamers often come with larger floor attachments, but that wouldn’t make sense on a unit this size.
As far as I could tell, all of the included attachments work with or without the hose extension.
It would’ve been nice if the oversized fill cap doubled as a steam adjustment knob, but that’s just for dreamers at this price point. If you want extra features like adjustable steam pressure, continuous fill, or a solenoid controller, you’ll need to upsize to something like the Vapamore Primo or EnviroMate Brio.
It’s worth noting that the Amico is not a dry steamer. While the pressure is high enough to ensure sufficient penetration into most soft upholstery, it isn’t high enough to prevent some excess water from being left behind on the steamed surface. You’ll want to have a towel handy for a quick cleanup after you’re done steaming.
All in all, we’re very happy with the Amico. While it doesn’t have as much muscle or as many features as larger or more expensive steamers, this more than fits the bill for those looking to steam on a budget (or desiring something in a smaller package). Look for the Vapamore MR-75 Amico to start shipping next week.
