Review of the HAAN SI-40: What Consumers Say About Their Unit?
We went through the feedback posted by consumers on a popular online retailer. Here are the pros and cons of the SI-40.
First, let’s talk about the life span of the SI-40. In the feedback section, what crops up often as far as longevity of the product is “4 years.” Several consumers say that they bought another unit of the Haan SI-40 because their previous one lasted for about 4 years, which is quite long for a cleaning machine.
However, not everyone agrees. There are a significant number of buyers who claim that their Haan Agile SI-40 lasted only less than 2 years. Some even said that their unit broke and stopped working only after a few months.
There are generally positive responses on the heatup time of this steam mop. Overall the Agile SI-40 “warms up quickly.”
Is it easy to use? The general consensus is that, yes, this product is easy to use, easy to assemble, and its water tank is easy to fill with water.
There are buyers who say they wished the cord was longer. If you have a large area to clean, you might find this a problem as well.
Other comments include the following:
– no streaking
– dries fast
Here’s Our Final Word
The Haan Agile SI-40 works when it works. It cleans well, there’s no streaking to worry about, and the steam dries up fast.
However, we cannot ignore the opposing consumer feedback on this product’s life span. While it’s possible that a unit of the SI-40 can last for at least 4 years, it’s also possible that you might be given a product that will stop working after only a few months of usage.
