Steamshine™ Costs You Less, Much Less!

Ethical manufacturers and dealers will notify customers of important safety, maintenance, and installation requirements on products they sell, prior to any sale, and will present their products on merit. Unethical and shady dealers will try to slander and smear: this, for you, must be a red flag! Other red flags: frequent redesign of product, frequent changing of product lines, frequently discontinuing products, unloading of obsolete technology on open credit, and the one-size-fits-all approach.

All models in the comparison chart have the same approximate usable capacity, and heat up to operating pressure in about the same time.

Energy Usage

Energy usage is higher on models with external sight glass, external drain and any other external components, and is not shown.

Electrical costs were calculated at $0.08/kWh at 8-hour working days.

Construction Materials

Steam cleaners with iron tanks rust. No estimate has been made for possible damage to jewelry due to rust particles, which can crack, chip or fracture diamonds or colored stones and in time will change the color of jewelry.

No estimate has been made for repairs or replacement parts: steam cleaners with a sight glass require considerably more maintenance, parts, and labor.

No estimate has been made for packing and shipping costs for rusting removing chemicals, which may be substantial.


Time required for maintenance may vary with chemicals used for rust removal, with level of skill of personnel, and with proximity to the source of water.

Costs for labor may vary, as well as costs for plumbing rust blow-down valve and safety relief valve: this MUST be done on all ASME Code steam cleaners. For safety reasons, the pipes should also be insulated as required by most local codes.

Shipping, handling, and insurance costs have been added but are not shown.

Usable Capacity & Heating Element Location

Steamshine ™ steam cleaners have more usable capacity, and a better design utilizing a dry heating element.
