    Promising Review: “I've owned a couple of Shark Steam mops over the years but this one is unbelievable. My two English springer spaniels have provided me with the opportunity to see if it can stand the test of time. I paid more to have the variable steam, and I can honestly say it is worth every penny. The machine is a true workhorse. What I like most is I don't need to spray anything on the toughest spots. The highest steam level breaks right through the grime.” —Elaine Hatch
