Reliable BRIO 250CC Steam Cleaner
Reliable has a tradition of producing quality steam cleaners in a range of styles and price points, and with the new Reliable Brio, they
once again provide a quality machine at a very affordable price. This introductory steam cleaner provides the sanitizing power of steam in a
compact, lightweight package. With our showroom model in hand, this is how the Brio fared in my home.
What I like about the Reliable BRIO 250CC Steam Cleaner
The Reliable Brio is one of the lightest canister-style steam cleaners you will find. At less than 12 lbs. it weighs almost half
as much as other canister style steamer models, and even full with water, it trails easily behind you as you steam. Unlike lightweight
steam mops, the Brio still affords you all the attachments and cleaning/sanitizing ability of a much more expensive steam cleaner.
After filling the model, I was surprised with the heat up time. While the Brio does use a boiler to generate the steam, the heating time was a few
minutes less than other boiler style steam cleaners that I've tested. For use on my floors it was cleaned as models that cost twice as much. The heat and pressure
loosened dirt and grime while unlocking pet odors that were trapped in my linoleum. The included accessories (21 pcs.) provide most of the major tools
needed to clean throughout the home. For tile, stovetops, my oven, and bathroom, I had everything I needed to properly sanitize my home.
Price is a big positive for this model. At $299, the Reliable Brio 250CC is priced comparably to some very popular steam cleaners. As a first steam
cleaner, the Brio provides all the basics to kill germs and remove allergens from your home without spending a small fortune to do so.
What I do not like about the Reliable BRIO 250CC Steam Cleaner
I have a couple drawbacks with this model, but as I like to say with less expensive products, if you know what you're getting ahead of time, you
won't be disappointed. The single tank system is fine for most people, but the dual tank system allows for no downtime when refilling and reheating. The other
side of this, though, is that the Brio heats up very quickly.
Unlike other Reliable's it lacks the triangular brush. For most people, this isn't a major concern. I just liked using that brush for certain tasks.
Lastly, this model, is made in China. If you were comparing this to other Reliable steam cleaners, you might notice
small differences in design and quality, but to me the biggest difference is the boiler. Instead of stainless, the Brio uses double walled aluminum.
It's cheaper and lighter, but not quite as durable as steel.
The Reliable BRIO is really simple to use, lightweight, economical and effective. I wouldn't purchase the BRIO expecting the same performance as if I had spent over
$1000 on the Reliable Tandem. However, it's a great intro model for those who want the healthy home and benefits of cleaning for your health, as opposed to
appearances, but do not want to cough up the equivalent of a house payment to do so!
