THE H. KOENIG NV6200, FOR ITS ULTRA ACCESSIBLE PRICE (THE CHEAPEST SELECTION!)
- Koenig also invites himself into the field of value for money, and with this shark rotator professional manual model, we believe we are simply dreaming. For less than 70 euros, the machine promises an incredible power of 2000W for a pressure of 4 bars. It is also a practical device, embedding a large volume 1.5L tank with a preheating time of only 8 minutes for continuous use for 45 minutes (non-wired model). And as a bonus to all of this, the steam cleaner has the luxury of including 10 accessories, such as brushes, a bench rest or extension or flexible tubes.
WHAT DO CONSUMERS SAY?
If the technical sheet comes with fantastic promises, consumers are on the other hand more mixed. In view of the price, they indicate that the machine is more entry-level: it will therefore offer great efficiency for everyday cleaning, but will clearly not be sufficient for deep cleaning. It is therefore due to this lack of communication that the model is penalized. Also, although the performance – for appropriate use – is good, users would have preferred a more ergonomic model, allowing for example easier filling of the tank or a simplified installation system for accessories.
Very good value for money
The 9 accessories included
Its reduced heating time
Steam is not suitable for heavy cleaning
Lack of ergonomics
It is a pity that the technical characteristics strangely do not reveal the same performance as models of higher ranges, displaying much higher prices, but being especially suitable for heavy cleaning. This is certainly not the case with this device, but at this price, it is very effective in cleaning everyday life. Once again, H. Koenig stands out as a brand of talent for achieving affordable prices.
THE KÄRCHER SC2 EASY FIX, FOR A BALANCED MODEL
Let’s finish on a good note by returning to our “love of youth” with Kärcher, this time in its SC2 version. Although relatively old and outmoded by the manufacturer’s most recent releases, the device remains popular with consumers – and for proof, its solid performance combined with its attractive price make it the ideal alternative. It thus comes with a power of 1500W as well as a pressure of 3.2 bars maximum. Its power allows it to release a maximum of 100g of steam per minute, or 40g / min in continuous use. Its heating time is clearly a trademark of the manufacturer, being only 6 minutes and 30 seconds.
WHAT DO CONSUMERS SAY?
It is a great success for the manufacturer, this model winning the maximum score for one in 2 consumers, with more than 80% of users giving a score greater than or equal to 4/5. His popularity speaks for him! At the same time, users value efficiency, ease of use and even lightness. The performances are also acclaimed, allowing a deep cleaning of the joints for example. Customers would however have appreciated more practicality with regard to the electric cable, a little too short and coming without reel.
Its power and pressure
Steam flow as well as the possibility of continuous steam use
Light and easy to move
Its 4m electric cable is a little short and without reel
Tank capacity: 1L
Without a doubt, an excellent success on the part of the manufacturer! It is a balanced model in all respects, deploying not only technical characteristics, but also displaying an ultra attractive price, less than 100 euros. If certainly we could call a greater practicality for the electric cable and the tank, with the somewhat limited volume, these are slight disadvantages in comparison with the advantages of the machine.
