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!

Excellent Steam, light weight, but bonnet will NOT stay on for use!
The bonnet, or attachable cloth, will absolutely not stay on the unit. I was unable to use this, although after trying very hard to tighten the string I did get one swipe across a surface and the amount of steam was truly amazing compared to my prior "Shark" unit. I also liked that I could pull the trigger & have continuous steam. I have returned for the better unit that includes clips for the bonnets.

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 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.

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.
