    While I have only had the Chief 75 for a short period of time, this machine has completely exceeded my expectations so far. While I have never owned a steamer before, I have been researching them for the past couple of years and finally decided to pull the trigger. I was looking for the best value within my budget since this is a “hobby” for me and I won’t be using it every day. Other machines in the same price range would have been a compromise on features and quality. Before finding out about the Chief 75, there were a couple of machines that I really liked, but they were almost twice the price. This machine met both my budget and my desired specs.

    The key things to note: It hits the 85 PSI as advertised. The water heats up quickly and a full tank will last longer than any job I have tackled so far. While this unit is a little more industrial looking, the stainless is nice quality and the build of the machine is great. The switches, fittings, cap, etc. are all very high quality. I’m really glad I didn’t go with a plastic machine. Lastly, the handle on top of the steamer makes it very easy to carry around using the handle, even when filled with water.

    While my primary use of the steamer was going to be auto detailing, I was curious, so I decided to try it out around the house – the first job I used it for was to see how it would do against 20-year-old baked/burnt on carbon build-up around the burners on an old stove. This buildup has been scrubbed using many times using many products and it wouldn’t budge. 20 minutes with the Chief 75 and all four burners are spotless. I was amazed.

    My only regret is not buying it sooner. This thing will be put to good use. The list of jobs is growing rapidly, but that’s ok because the Chief 75 makes jobs much easier, and seeing the end results is very satisfying.

    What an impressive tool! I just got it last night, and I’m already in love with it. The pressure is amazing and the build quality seems second to none! I have no doubt that this steamer will last for years.

    All of the nozzles and heads fit great and don’t seem to get loose.

    Thanks again!

    I have only used this model for two days now cleaning mainly my bathrooms and I am very impressed with it. I bought my unit on a Monday and it arrived at my door on a Wednesday. Great shipping time. It was very well packaged. I did research on other brands similar to this model and I eventually thought they were charging too much. The instructions were easy to follow on the do’s and don’ts of the unit. Sure it takes 10-12 minutes to get up to pressure, but it is worth the wait when you see what it clean.

    I did make the mistake of using the nylon brush on grout which made me do more passes back and forth and wore down the brush a bit. When I switched to the copper brush it work much better and faster.

    Tried the squeege to clean the windows and mirrors. No streaking which was nice.

    I also used the tip just to let hot steam out and I sanitized the whole toilet.

    The horse hair brushes were nice and soft and cleaned out the calcium around my faucets without scratching them.

    The rest of the components look well built and I have yet to use them all so far.III know I will be using this machine to clean other items and I am sure it is up to the task. I would recommend Vapor Chief steamers to anyone.

    The Vapor Chief “Single” Commercial 75 is our very first steamer. We bought one mainly to help clean walls and ceilings with 16 years of Cigarette smoke and whatever else was mixed with it so we could repaint (The whole house). The flat ceiling paint looked like satin with all of the nicotine. I bought some rectangle tool bonnets from a competitor.

    My hopes were really high. The steamer came well packed and in perfect shape. I could not get 2 Liters of water in.
    It was closer to 1.5. It filled up to then top and I had to dump some per the instructions.. I used distilled even though Kevin’s video says tap water is fine. For .75 a gallon I figured why not.

    It did take about 12 minutes to build to 75 PSI. At about 1/2 pressure with one extension and the rectangle tool with a bonnet on it, with my bad shoulder and my wife watching thinking about the cost, I made my first pass after running some steam through the bonnet. From the top to middle of the wall with the steam on, Instant gratification! Both of us at the same time…Wow! I had done a 21 foot wall and part of the ceiling in about an hour. Not perfect, but WOW!

    The bonnets did load up quickly due to all of the nicotine on the walls and the ceiling. I used 4 out of 5 for that first wall and part of the ceiling. I ended up using TSP-PF and clean water with a sponge with a microfiber cloth on one side for the ceiling for finishing. It looked so good I did the walls also. This steamer truly made it easier by removing the bulk the of gunk with little effort. The manual cleaning after the steaming was low effort. More like a quick wipe down.

    I’m not going to say it was fun, (Walls and Ceiling), but if we weren’t painting new colors, I would just leave it. Not much more I can say. I used it for about 2 hours with short breaks (many) and the water level light never can on. Day 2, I was able to get 1.5 liters in without it over filling making me think there was water in it out of the box? There was a bit of pressure in it out of the box. I think that will be my normal fill amount from now on. 1.5 liters.

    The recovery time on this machine is crazy. After pushing it with full pressure to see how far I could get, the thunk sound came on when pushing the button. I put down the tool, walked into the kitchen, grabbed some water from the fridge, walked back into the living room 5 feet away, looked down and about 10 seconds later I was pointing at the GREEN light and the pressure which was at 75. That impressed me more than my wife, but over and over recovery was impressive.

    We tried the single hole tool with a horse hair brush on my wife’s dusty nick backs and porcelain roses with a lot of creases with very low pressure (About a quarter turn from zero.) 15 seconds later they looked new.

    Our fridge (White) with the dirty handles. I gave up on trying to clean them a long time ago. Same tool and brush with my wife watching. 10-15 seconds and they looked like new. My wife FINALLY said, “You did good”!

    I tried the squeegee tool on a big dust and nicotine covered mirror. NO GO. It just streaked into a giant mess. I had to break out the glass cleaner to clean it up. Maybe if I spent more time on it, but the glass cleaner worked instantly.

    I will finish with this. I did a TON of research. I wanted Great at a Great price. I actually came across this steamer by chance. I am lucky that I did. I think I did Great.

    My one suggestion to Kevin is to get together with more vendors and offer rectangular bonnets and a Steam Mop attachment. Other than that, I am sure that I made the right decision for our needs. I will be steaming EVERYTHING. Ladies, it’s a guy thing. I did the living room clock and my wife looked at me and just smiled!
    I am a Vapor Chief fan!

    The Vapor Chief Commercial 75 psi steamer is of the highest quality and highest value for your money. The machine does everything it says it will do. We have used it on patio furniture, showers with glass blocks, car interiors, lawn tractor, wood floors, grout, tile, outside metal doors, deck, carpet, the uses of this machine are unending. This is an outstanding product which I would recommend to anyone. A rugged Commercial machine with true valve. The service you receive is also second to none. You actually can speak with a real person when you call. Again OUTSTANDING!

    I bought it to clean my house and my car which my husband does. It is amazing on my oven and refrigerator. It cleans grout and tile with ease. Sinks and faucets are no problem. I cleaned the range hood easily. It just hangs in there. I hesitated to pay this much money for a commercial machine when I really did not need a commercial rating. But many residential models are about this price. Handle does get a little hot after using for a while.

    Purchased this for car interiors to aid in my mobile detailing side job. It works wonderfully! You cant beat the price for the specs of this machine. If you’re a busy car detailer or plan to do entire house carpets, consider the 100 model for its continuous fill feature and of course the extra PSI cleaning power!

  8. Seth P (verified owner)

    It’s a good machine, but wished it had a little water injection. The steam is only very hot directly on the surface. On carpets and seats you do need to spray a little cleaner on the areas to help clean it. Its still better than the way I used to clean. Steam adjuster could be on the handle as I have to go over to the front of the machine to adjust it

    This thing really cleans. I use it for car detailing and some of the cars interiors are beyond dirt. Only on ground in mud carpets, it will not work good. Even when it drops psi’s, its still hot and there is enough steam to clean. It was a good price and very well made. Possible 5 stars if it had even higher pressure and a few more brushes? Wear black small ones too fast

    I own a large detail shop with 6 bays. I wanted 3 steamers. I looked all over and saw all the rest. Some were continuous, some were not. Most of the continuous models were either almost $2K or the less expensive ones looked a little cheap. The Refill 100 machine was what I really wanted but didn’t want 3 of them and not know how good they really were. So I purchased 2 of the 75 PSI machines. I knew going in that they would need to be refilled during the day, but I wanted to save a little money. What a steal this is! This machine cleans 2 rather dirty interiors before the need to refill it and what a job it does. It is a workhorse and a time saver. So I bought a third one. I do not think any of the others can be better than this one

    Its a cleaning animal. Heats pretty fast and the water inside has lasted longer than I thought. I was cleaning my house and commercial building with this. I took it to my office to clean the bathrooms and after cleaning inside the house I forgot to fill it back up. I heated it and then remembered that it was not full. It was too late to get the cap off and fill it as it rose to pressure quickly. I began cleaning the office kitchen and bathroom and just made it before the red light came on and it was out of water. Performance is super and its was a great deal compared to others I had looked at

    Love this steamer. I was going to buy the 100 pressure model but in speaking with Kevin about what I do and the amount of time I would be using it, he suggested the 75 model. His suggestion not only saved me money but I have not once run it out of water in the middle of a job. It seems like the pressure is even higher than 75. It heats fast and recovers fast.

  13. Randy S (verified owner)

    My budget was slightly higher than the actual price of this machine. I was going to buy one of the more well know competitors that had a few more brushes. But this machine had better specs on paper and seems to prove it in use. The steam is hot and the pressure is good. Wish they did include a few more brushes or had a better price or a “ten deal” on brushes as i clean grout and tile in restaurants and i wear them quickly. Other than that, a great machine.

    I use this for auto detailing. It cuts interior time almost in half and everything is dry and clean. The pressure is more than enough. The horsehair brushes and the 3 hole nozzle work great on leather and vinyl. Finding all kinds of uses for it both inside and out. Very informative website that helped me choose this over the others. And the price was better.
