There are no “cons” or downsides to a continuous fill steamer. Some people claim they are “wetter” and spit water all over. This is simply not true with a good machine that has a high-quality boiler and heater. Our Chief Steamer refill steamer still has very dry steam vapor just like our single pro 75 version.

The Chief Steamer 100 PSI Refill Commercial Steam Cleaner

  1. Continuous fill- a huge plus which means no down time.
  2. ALL Italian made
  3.  heavy duty polished all stainless steel body.
  4. Stainless steel AISI 304 boiler which meets a very high industry standard. This is VERY important!
  5. LIFETIME boiler warranty
  6. External heating element- there are no coils that touch water. This heater will never corrode as it is on the “outside” of the boiler
  7. LIFETIME warranty on heating element
  8. 1750 (14.5 amps) watts of power to get to pressure quickly!
  9. 3 year warranty on other internal parts
  10. Easy servicing
  11. Fast heating 2.0 liter boiler in about 9-10 minutes
  12. Excellent recovery time. About a 1:1.25 ratio of ON and recovery
  13. 2.5 liter water tank (non-pressurized)
  14. Infinite steam volume control from zero to max pressure
  15. Now at 110 PSI. A modest 10 PSI increase which helps with “working” pressure. It’s still not a “pressure washer” but every little bit helps.
  16. About 335 degree boiler steam temperature in the boiler
  17. About 280-295 degrees at the wand tip (depending on output desired). We may be slightly less than other competitors due to a longer hose, but our higher pressure should compensate for hose length
  18. 12 foot hose- ( as of 12/27/2017) we found this hose length to be the perfect size. A 3 foot extender hose is available
  19. 13 foot electrical cord
  20. Full accessory package- see the list here
  21. Lightweight and portable- about 23 pounds
  22. Engineered specifically for USA use
  23. Please see the gallery picture for all the included attachments
  24. Attention Detailers- We want to let you know that we can pack a machine used for detailing with what we call the “detailers kit”. This means that we are subtracting a few items that detailers do not use on a car. In all our years in detailing cars and using steam cleaners, we have found these attachments to not be needed.
    What will be deleted is the following
    2- extension tubes
    Squeegee
    2- brass bristle brushes
    Long rectangle floor brush
  25. So, what we are doing is offering a $35 credit if you choose to leave these out. Please look at our video explaining this here.

Why continuous fill?
There are no “cons” or downsides to a continuous fill steamer. Some people claim they are “wetter” and spit water all over. This is simply not true with a good machine that has a high-quality boiler and heater. Our Chief Steamer refill steamer still has very dry steam vapor just like our single pro 75 version. CLICK HERE to see why continuous fill is important and useful

The “pros” and all the upside to a continuous fill model are many
more convenient- simply add water to a non-pressurized tank and let the machine do the rest. It fills the boiler automatically and starts the heating process on its own. When the boiler requests water, it will fill it as needed
much safer– there is no pressurized cap that may need to be removed when the boiler runs out of water. The tank you are adding water to is under zero pressure.
no down time- on a single or boiler cap steam cleaner, when the boiler is empty, steam can no longer be made. Therefore, you need to stop working. This is where the danger comes in. At this point, if you want to continue to work, the steam needs to be bled out of the boiler…..very carefully. Then, you would have to remove the boiler cap. This is NEVER recommended when the machine is hot. Although there may not show any more pressure, there is always residual pressure in a steam boiler and a boiler cap being removed at this time will need be done with EXTREME care. Even when done correctly, there is always a chance of being scalded and there is still the down time in doing all this, then refilling the boiler and waiting for it to heat again
smaller boilers and bigger heaters can be used- In a very well engineered machine such as the Chief Steamer refill, we use a smaller boiler than pressure cap machines. This is actually a “advantage”, not a “disadvantage”. A smaller boiler will still produce a great volume of steam and still hold pressure well if the boiler and the heater are well engineered such as it is in our machine. As well, a smaller boiler will heat faster and recover faster. We use a high wattage heater which will heat faster and make steam quicker. There is a balance of the size of the boiler, the room inside available for steam, and the heater wattage. We think we have struck a perfect balance.
24/7- you may have seen some companies advertise their steamers a 24/7 machines. That is not claiming how heavy duty or commercial they necessarily may be. They are just saying that with a continuous fill machine you can work it all day long as there is no down time as we have explained. HOWEVER, keep this really important point in mind. Just because they claim it a 24/7 machine, it may not be commercial grade. Our Chief Steamer Refill is full commercial grade……and of course can operate 24/7
It is true that a continuous fill machine needs to be more expensive than a single boiler or a pressure cap machine. There are more electronics in these machines and they should be built to much higher standards. We do not believe in making “CHEAPO” continuous fill machines for the reasons we just pointed out. because there needs to be more electronics, these electronics such as the circuit board, pump, sensors, and wiring need to be heavy duty. We expect our customers will be using these machines for long periods of time during the day. The components need to be commercial grade. We cannot make a continuous refill unit that is only slightly more expensive than the single or boiler cap version. Please understand this. The “CHEAPO” continuous fill units are just that. We have tried to sell them and have had nothing but issues with these cheaper versions. They are OK if used lightly and NOT advertised as commercial. But when used all day long we found the cheaper ones fail frequently and are actually more difficult to repair as their components are stuffed into very small bodies.
That does not mean we are hugely expensive. We may be slightly more expensive than some other popular “CHEAPO” units you have seen out there. But now look at our price, look at what we know, look at how we make our machine, and decide if we really are that much more expensive. We KNOW how to make a steam cleaner and we specialize in our continuous fill model

The Chief Steamer name has been synonymous with quality over the years. It has to be a heavy duty commercial steamer that can stand up to every day and all day use. And of course, it needs to be powerful.

Just in case you think a heavy duty commercial machine such as the Chief Steamer is “expensive”, we want to show you the “competition” and list some companies who list their commercial steam cleaner prices. These steam cleaners, in our opinion are very good units, but in most of them have lower specs but higher prices.

(Prices as of 11/2016)
Lady Bug Tekno 2350 $2155
Lady Bug XL2300 $1706
Reliable Brio Pro 1000- $1698
Vapor Jet PC 2400- $2330
US Steam- Eagle- $1899
Amerivap Vapor Blitz II- $2099.00
DuPray Hill Injection- $1997
Vapamore MR-1000 Forza- $1499

We also know there are other steam cleaners whose prices are not listed, which means they are FAR more expensive than the Chief Steamer, and still will have LESS pressure, LESS heat, LESS features, or at most be equal to the Chief Steamer, but still more money.

And last, there are countless steam cleaners that are just a little less expensive than the Chief Steamer, but when you look at the specs and features, these steam cleaners do not even come close to the quality and performance of the Chief Steamer. We invite you to look at the competition. We know after you do your research, you will see that the Chief Steamer is the one to choose and the best deal.

Read more about the features and engineering of the Chief Steamer

A Chief Steamer cleaner is engineered to protect itself. It knows that its owner may not take as great of care of it as they may have promised when it was new. So there are built in safety items that automatically “protect and save” the steamer from a harsh user. For instance

  • Chief Steamer cleaner uses an “external” heating element. This ensures that coils never are immersed in water and cannot corrode. In addition, our heater fully surrounds the bottom of the boiler and heats the water evenly, radiates heat through and around and gets it up to pressure quickly. Because of this design, we can offer a lifetime warranty on the heater.
  • A Chief Steamer cleaner cannot run its pump more than 45 seconds without shutting down and “resting”. If it senses the pump has been run too long, such as in a low water or NO water situation where it has no water to pump, it shuts off. If there is a leak and it has no water to pump, it shuts off. It will NOT burn itself out. A high-quality pump is standard on all Chief Steamer commercial steam cleaners.
  • A Chief Steamer cleaner has an “external” heat sensor that is mounted on the bottom of the boiler to sense excessive temperature and turn the heater off if the temperature gets too hot. This saves the heater, the boiler, all components, and is an added safety feature.
  • Chief Steamer cleaners all have 12 Gage wiring. These thicker, stronger wires are easily able to transmit the 1750 watts to the heater and all other heavy duty electrical components
  • The Chief Steamer will now have a “sleep” feature to turn off the heater if the machine has not been used for 10 continuous minutes. If it’s not used for 1 hour, it will automatically shut off to save electricity and be safer. We program this into our circuit boards

  1. Rated 3 out of 5

    I like the long hose and the 100 PSI. Not really enough steam however to wash a car or use it for more than 2 minutes at a time. It does get pretty hot and all the attachments work well and are useful. Its works exactly how they say it will but i just thought i could wash a car with it. Fantastic on the inside, but still not enough to clean a filthy carpet. Doesn’t work like an extractor so i still need one of those for horrible carpets. But they also said that as well. Maybe should have gotten the 125 model.

      Use a wet/dry Bostitch vac at the same time. Works excellent. Better than a all in one unit.

    I am in charge of housekeeping at a mid size brand hotel. We made a decision to start cleaning with steam and began the search. There are so many out there but i wanted a full commercial machine. Price is always an issue as we needed multiple units and we have a budget. But we also look down the road and what it will cost to keep something up and running. This was more money but we needed performance and service. We have received both. A few minor issues since we have had them but Kevin diagnosed each one correctly over the phone and they were easily repaired. In the long run we will save money with these machines based on quality and the warranty. And it cleans everything we need to clean in record time. Housekeepers are spending an average of 6 minutes less per room which is HUGE in a large hotel.

    I work at a car dealer and we already had one that i use every day. The dealer machine is over 2 years old and used all day long. So i wanted one for my side business. I called Kevin direct and he made me a good deal. The newer one seems even better than the older one. I think the hose is longer and it heats a little faster. The dealer machine has only needed a few orings, a new clamp that came off the hose, and one sensor to regulate the pressure which was easy to replace. And we don’t even wear out the brushes too quickly. That one still works great and i am expecting long life from this one.

    I actually wanted the more powerful and industrial car wash steam cleaner. After Kevin asked me a bunch of questions on how i would be using it, he informed me that i only needed the 100 PSI model. I saved a bunch of money and its more than powerful enough. He knows more about steam cleaners than any of the other companies i spoke with. They were salesman. He is a technician. There was no question that he did not have a lengthy answer for. i am sure the other models are as good as the one i purchased.

    I use this for auto detailing and mainly for the interior. The brushes are really good. I thought they should have more as other companies will give you a few more but these seem to hold up well. Horsehair really helps on vinyl and leather. i have cleaned some very grimy areas that i never would have thought would come clean and they did. Even on door jambs with a little cleaner sprayed on, it works well. Not great on engines and wheels. And it is very hot that i almost ruined a leather seat. Be careful and do a test area first. But now i know and i can adjust it lower and watch for color coming off.

    I do not give anything a 5 star rating. That would mean perfection. This machine is excellent and is so much better than my previous steamer in all areas. if only they could make a steamer that was $1000 and would also have the injection feature and not drop pressure, then its a 5 star. But this is a really good one.

    We are a bigger detail shop on a large metropolitan area with many car dealers. We detail many of their used cars. I have had a few steamers before this. Most were the boiler cap types which were pretty good but lower pressure, only 2 or 3 steam settings, short hose, etc. The old style steamer. They are still out there in droves which surprised me. But i wanted the auto refill model. I paid more for this model based on the guy specializes in detailing and training. Seemed easy. Was easy! Got it fast. Set up is filling it, pressing the power button, plugging in the hose and seeing it reach pressure really fast. Then blow steam and it blew me away. Sure, the pressure drops but it stays good enough to do tough carpets and seats without stopping to let it charge again. Horse hair brushes are great. The 3 hole tip is great. Longer hose is certainly helpful and doesn’t seem to hurt pressure. We were using steam before this one, but we are now a little faster and a little more effective and so far no issues.

    I am a mobile detailer. This machine helps me with interiors and does it fast and removes many stains and leave hardly any moisture behind. The 3 hole nozzle with a horsehair brush works great on doors and seats like leather. Have done many cars with cigarette smoke and coffee and soda stains and even some juice and it gets it out. Bonnet that covers triangle brush gets too dirty and too wet very fast so i not use it much and they should have more. But very nice machine.

    Looked at all the continuous refill machines out there. Strange that many of the plastic ones that looked cheaper but were more expensive. Then i saw some stainless models that were a little cheaper and looked OK, but i kept looking and stumbled on this one. I do not clean cars. I clean restaurants so i did not know if it would correlate. But i called to get more information and some clarification. What i got was an education! Kevin really knows steamers and explains the differences in an easy to understand way. I am happy i bought it as it does what i need it to do and my customers are very happy and i am cleaning better and faster than before. It works as advertised.

    Our car dealership details 10-12 used cars per day. We have had other so-called commercial steam cleaners that either could not do the job or broke all the time. Kevin builds a machine that has held up, performs exceedingly well, and cars get done faster. He is always there to answer a question and get us the correct part to fix it. We run our steamers 9 hours per day always plugged in and they hold up well.

    Didn’t know if it would work on my mixers in my bakery but gave it a shot based on pressure and heat ratings. Great volume of steam and seems to hold pressure well. I can clean a mixer with dried batter in no time. before it was cleaners and hot water and way too much of a mess. Have moved on to cleaning the trays, stove tops, stainless counters, blowing crumbs out of the display windows, even the registers which always have a dusty mess of powdered sugar and stains all over. The steam can be adjusted to very low and dry to full blast and wetter which helps. We are finding new ways to use it every day and it stays plugged in and ready in the back.

    I own a car wash. We do express interiors that need to be done in 15-20 minutes. Obviously steam was the way to go and the refill model is what we needed as it has to be ready at all times. The things we clean in 20 minutes should take double that time. We now advertise express steam cleaning and we are busy all day. We should be charging more for what we do with the steamer. Easy to operate for anyone who needs to use it and very safe to use and fill up.

    I would love to give this little work horse more than 3, but it arrived a little dinged up. Maybe the fault of fed ex or the fault of the person packing it. But Kevin did give me a slight credit for the damage as it worked fine. Then the gun leaked a little on its second day and hot water was running down to my hand. Called Kevin again, and again he was happy to help me replace the oring that made its way off the nipple. Since then its been super and works like a champ. Heats fast and recovers fast. The nozzle that holds the round brushes does get very hot after using it for a while. They maybe could have insulated that a little better. 5 star for performance but only 3 for the slight hiccups in the beginning and the hot nozzle which makes me wear a glove.

    Never had a steamer before so i did tons of research and made countless calls before buying one. Kevin was a straight shooter and told me what to expect with any machine. He seems to know the competition but does not say bad things and only points out differences and if they matter or not. I do like the idea of the external heater and the lifetime boiler and heater warranty makes me think these will not be an issue. When i got it, it heated faster than i thought and blew steam like i did not expect. You feel the pressure coming through the hose and rushing out the front. Cleaning a car is much easier and customers love the idea of steam cleaning. Will pay for itself very fast.

    I never used steam before but i needed to clean pet cages and grooming tables in my dog grooming shop. Steam seemed to be the way to go. I wanted the continuous refill model and the extra pressure and longer hose. It works really well in getting the corners clean of hair and some other doggie stuff that i will not mention here. I can have it ready to go in less than 10 minutes. It will drop pressure if you look at the Gage but you really do not notice it or see it until a could of minutes have gone by. Never gets to the point where i cant work anymore.

    Terrific product & EXCELLENT help from Kevin I had researched Vapor Steam Cleaners for over one year before pulling the trigger on the Vapor Chief 100 The Vapor Chief design and ease of use is top notch The external heating element is genius After receiving my steamer, I put it to the test and it performed flawlessly I am using the steamer to clean and sanitize my home It works great for cleaning the tile in the bathroom, the tub, sink, and toilet all sparkle like new with no need for chemicals As a steam mop on the hardwood floors there is nothing better To clean the kitchen including the built up grime on the stove top that would not come up in the past….. there is no comparison My home is clean, fresh, and I no longer need to purchase chemical cleaners! I am so pleased that I just ordered a second Vapor Chief for my second home If you are on the fence, call Kevin, he will answer your questions and then give the Vapor Chief a try You will not be disappointed

    This is the machine to have, I am so glad I stepped up to the 100. I use this for detailing as well as around the house and like any tool that makes the job easier this puppy works well. I will say if you are thinking about the 75 spend the extra it will put a smile on your face. This machine is well made easy to use has a very nice hose and attachments as well. Shipping was fast and Kevin answered all my emails quickly. I am very pleased with my purchase and let’s face it it’s not a cheap machine but for the money I feel it’s worth it. Thanks Kevin
