THE MOST POWERFUL HANDHELD TRAVEL CLOTHES STEAMER AVAILABLE
As a stylist, steamers are our go-to kit of choice. Yes we use irons, but mostly we use steamers to press the clothes we borrow from PRs. Our job is fast-paced and working with an iron can be a slow task. We can steam a rail of clothing in less than half the time it would take to iron a full rail, and with less chance of ruining garments.
The Fridja steamers are the best on the market.
The first up was the Fridja F10 portable handheld.
This is an impressive piece of kit, with as much steam power as a stand up steamer. It is small and compact and ideal for a stylist's kit bag.
It comes in three colours:
Pink - Gigi
Black - Raf
White - Erin
The F10 handheld warms up in 45 secs.
Has a standby button for when you need the steamer left on.
Control button for constant flow of steam or the option of controlled bursts.
Steams nonstop for 14 minutes.
Light & portable at 900 grams.
My favourite part of the handheld is that if I travel I can leave the water tank at home, leaving more space in my luggage and I can use a bottle of water with the water adapter provided.
I have bought and used different brands of handheld steamers in the past. Although they did the job-ish.. I wouldn’t recommend other brands that are cheaper models, purely because I have been electrocuted on occasion, you are better off buying a kettle to do the job.
THE STAND UPS
Again a fantastic piece of kit, I love how lightweight and compact it is and how fast it is ready to go. If I owned a studio or location house, I would make sure this was the piece of kit I had available for the stylists to use.
Ready to steam in 45 seconds.
3.2 litre water tank.

Priced the same as the handheld F10, these are very savvy buys. I would personally opt for the handheld for work, as most studios have steamers. But at home, I would certainly have one of the uprights.
Ready to steam in 35 seconds.
2.2 litre water tank.
65 minutes continuous steaming.
Perfect for delicate clothing including silk, lace and cashmere..
