The terry cloth wont stay on the mop once it gets wet
This item is a real loser. Once the terry cloth gets wet, it falls off. The design is poor, triangle shaped making it difficult for the wet terry cloth to hold on. There is no elastic on the terry cloth, only a little pull cord. I called Oreck and complained and was basically told "tough luck, you bought it." They could offer no way to fix the problem. I notice that the new steam mops have been redesigned. Oreck has tried to sell me the new mop when I have my vacuum in for servicing and I remind them that they didn't stand behind the steam mop. Don't buy this version of the steam mop!

Got as a birthday gift and i love it!!Great steam mop!!
Easy to put together and very easy to use! The only time the pads come off is when they get heavy with water then you have to change them. I did my carpet and another room before pad fell off and switched it out.I have no problem with this machine--it does what its supposed to do!

Nothing Good about this product
Horrible! It leaves streaks of water in some places and doesn't clean others, The washable mop heads do not stay on, I am very disappointed in this product

I absolutely hate this steamer. Unless you are a strong man or an amazon you can not get the pad to stay on. Two swipes of the floor and the pad comes off. Put it back on and two swipes more and the pad flies off. The pad should be bigger so it comes up around the head more. The steam is good and it cleans all right if you can get he pad to stay on. It's probably all right for soneone young and strong but old ladies should not buy this product.

The best purchase in a long time!
I had no idea that my floors were "that dirty" until I used this steam mop. OMG, I love this thing. It was easy to assemble and it is a joy to use. I love to see the results when I'm done steaming my floors. I have two dogs so I use the steam mop twice per week. It really is amazing!

I wanted to love this, but...
I bought one of these a few years ago, probably the first generation. I really like using it, primarily because it was so much lighter in weight than Oreck's other steam mop. And at that time it was under $70. However, the water tank holds a tiny amount of water and the quality of the build was substandard. Despite taking very good care of it and getting minimal usage (small house, once a week,) it developed an issue that "Oreck no longer made parts for to fix" and had to be thrown out. If this were under $60, I might consider another one, but given the track record of the first one and the price, no thanks. My local store hasn't had these for several years, so I'm curious as to why they brought them back and if they actually addressed any of the problems...

Don't Purchase This Mop
I have owned an Oreck vacuum for 5 years - that said, I thought I would try their steam mop. BIG MISTAKE! This mop is cheap and very poorly designed. The steam mop cloth cover does not stay on and the triangle cloth holder is extremely cheap and does not stay on.......Oreck makes great vacuums but steam mops are not their expertise --- don't waste your time or money!

Not reliable or durable. Great, when it works.
My Steam-Glide has always been glitchy, even when it was brand new. I went through a period of time when it would only "steam" if you held the trigger in a specific way. Now, it won't steam at all. I've always used distilled water. I called Oreck she said I could try vinegar water. That was it. For the money, I would not recommend this product. My whole family is Oreck loyal but I am really disappointed with this.

A great buy and gets the job done with ease
Had the steam and grab and didn't like it so we got this and love it. By far the best unit to clean ceramic tiles. Quick and easy to us without having to have a lot of chemicals. Sometime we say, wow that was a great buy and this was one of those great buys.

It's only okay
I bought this because I was tired of spending a ton of money on my Swiffer Wet Jet liquid and pads. For the money, this steam mop isn't bad, but I think my kitchen/dining room are too big. I would recommend it for someone in a small home. I'm disappointed that it doesn't clean corners and edges of the floor, but I guess that is common for any floor cleaning machine.
I'll spend more on my next steam mop and get more cord and water capacity.

Oreck Steam glider
I seem to have an older model of the Steam Glide from the pictures I see...had it sitting in a closet, brand-new, and decided to try it. It is very flimsy, the water reservoir kept separating from the machine even though secured on the handle. The pad does not easliy glide on the floor or tile. I did use distilled water also in the reservoir. I own Oreck vacuum cleaners and air cleaners,but this was a true disappointment to me.
