Overview

The Jiffy J-2000 garment steamer comes equipped with a 96oz tank; this is larger than the average 60oz tanks that are available in the market. This feature greatly reduces refilling frequency. The clear and sturdy water plastic water galleon that makes-up about ¾ of this device is put on wheels that each includes a stopper.

It features a valve that prevents water from spilling onto your garments and damaging it. With its large tank as its reservoir, you can use the steamer for about an hour and a half without any interruptions. Also, the tank can be quickly fixed on the base of the machine.

Enhanced Durability

If you have pets and children in your home, you know how they can wreak havoc and easily damage your belongings. Unfortunately for you, most electronic devices aren’t long-lasting. Fortunately, this isn’t the case with this Jiffy steamer J 2000; the robust plastic and high-quality wooden handles are very durable.

The premium rubber hose, rubber plates, and leak-proof plates also greatly enhance the machine’s lifespan. Upon purchase, you can choose between a plastic head or a metal head, both are good options and will endure the test of time.

Engine Performance

The J2000 Jiffy garment steamer has a 1300 watt engine that takes only 2 minutes to heat up before it can eliminate wrinkles. The device is power efficient, as it automatically shuts down once the steaming temperature has been reached. This helps save on electricity and prevents potential damage.

Not only is it quick and effective at smoothening out creases, but it also saves you a lot of effort and time. Just make sure that you’re using the device properly as you could get injured by the steam if used improperly. We suggest that you wear protective gloves to reduce the risk of an accident.

Functionality

The Jiffy J 2000 steamer can be used on all types of garments, regardless of their fabric, size, and length. You can use them on your shirts, pants, tablecloths, bedsheets, curtains, or any other type of apparel. The 5.5-foot hose and handles are really easy to handle and flexible.

You’ll even get a variety of attachments to choose from. This makes your job simple and comfortable. The rubber hose is tall enough to reach curtains and is perfect for any user. With its 8-foot long power cord, you’ll have enough room to manoeuvre the device around your home.

The J 2000 Jiffy garment steamer stays in power for a whopping 100 minutes. This means that you can use it while watching your favourite Netflix series, and the runtime will still be the same. While we hope you don’t have to do that much work in one setting, the Jiffy’s got you covered.

How Does the Jiffy Steamer J-2000 work on Shirts

Dress shirts take about 4 minutes to be properly steamed. Silk dresses only require one press to remove all of the wrinkles. The device has a wide steam dispenser with six holes, which provides the correct amount of steaming power. It worked on a wool sweater with no problem and took on every garment with no issue, taking out the wrinkles with little effort.

The handle remains cool while heating, which is a bonus for comfort level on an already well-designed machine. When you have to move around with the machine, the four wheels roll easily. You don’t have to move it much while it’s in use, but once it was time to wheel it all away, it was a simple process.

The Jiffy 2000 has a clear water chamber that lets you know how much water is left in its steam cycle. With its carrying handle, you can transport the machine to and from the sink effortlessly.

Safety Concerns

The product is very safe and reliable if you use it correctly. The automatic shutdown feature turns off the electric flow if the steamer becomes too hot. Also, it has wooden handles (which are bad conductors of electricity) to reduce the risk of shocks from the machine.

The insulator attached to the device helps regulate the temperature. While the hose heats up quickly, with a few safety precautions, you can avoid a few accidents.

Pros

  • Quiet Operation: Despite its great power, the J2000 Jiffy garment steamer can be used anytime and runs quietly.
  • Metal Head: Users can choose from the plastic or the metal head. With the metal head, users experienced greater durability. It can also act as an iron when its placed against the fabric.
  • Protected Hose:  It allows you to clean outfits easier and cleans larger materials effortlessly.

Cons

  • Weight: The weight of this model has become a noticeable issue for some users. Moving around rough terrains, like stairs is difficult.
  • Steamer Pole: To some, the steamer pole is a great feature to the device. However, some users have reported it's hard for it to reach tight spaces.
  • Heat: Some users state that after using the machine for an hour, it can become extremely hot and create minor burns. As we stated earlier, you want to use anti-steam gloves if you plan on using it for more than 30 minutes.

Conclusion

We believe that the Jiffy J-2000 is the best steamer for people who have multiple clothes and a limited amount of time. While it heats up quickly, it has enough power to remove wrinkles without the added grunt work. So consider getting it if you want to keep your clothes clean and pressed correctly.
