After years of development, we are super proud to launch our f10 Handheld / Travel Clothes Steamer! YES BOSS!
Maximum power, crease busting, long lasting water tank, gorgeous aesthetics and reasonably priced. We are SO EXCITED to tell you all about it! However we’d like to start by telling you about how we got here. There are so many clothes steamers on the market, so how is ours different? Well we knew exactly what our competition was, and how we were going to be better than every single one of them.
Getting our handheld travel clothes steamer wasn’t easy to be honest. It took much longer than we’d like. There are so many variables and none that you want to compromise on. There are loads on the market, but none can compete with ours. Let us show you why!
There are basically three different clothes steamers that are on the market, none of which we wanted to replicate. You might have seen them online, or even seen used them. The first looks a bit like this:
This is essentially a kettle with a handle on. Cheap, but not worth spending money on. They take a while to heat up, and once they do they splurge out a mixture of steam and spits of water. This uncontrollable flow of water and steam semi gets the job done, but also soaks your clothes at the same time. The result is a half steamed, water drench garment – not ideal. They last for around 8 minutes (because the water is heated so quickly) and just are a bit rubbish (sorry competitors, it’s true).
The second type look a bit like this:
Now these are a little bit better. They have a pump inside mostly, so the water/steam is much more controlled. However, they just aren’t powerful enough. Check the wattage! 900w, 1100w, some are even 500w! This means that the water isn’t heated up enough to provide a proper plume of steam.
The final type, which is better, but still not great are the premium offerings from the kingpins of the home appliance world:
Now some of these aren’t too bad with the steam, but this design isn’t good for two reasons. Firstly and most importantly, they are HEAVY. Using this for more than 5 minutes leaves your arm tired and shoulder aching. It’s not a good solution for getting some serious steaming done. Secondly, the tanks they use don’t hold enough water, so you are replacing the water all too often (under ten minutes use mostly).
When shopping around for something to keep your clothes, suits, dresses, wedding dresses and soft furniture looking awesome, you don’t want to turn it on and it’s not good enough, it’s just a waste of time. That’s exactly what we thought about other handheld/travel clothes steamers. We tested and used all of these products to understand their limitations, and to make sure our f10 handheld travel clothes steamer outperformed each one.
FRIDJA f10 HANDHELD TRAVEL CLOTHES STEAMER
The Fridja 10 Handheld Travel Clothes Steamer has THE SAME POWER AS A FULL SIZE CLOTHES STEAMER.
Strong Stubborn Creases, Careful On Delicate Materials
We managed to cram all the power of a full sized steamer into a handheld unit, 1500w. We’ve also coupled it with a heated metal plate, combining the power of steam and a hot ironing plate. This hot plate ensures that stubborn creases from materials like linen, cotton and denim stand no chance. NONE!
When using on delicate materials, just use the net guard. This ensures the metal plate doesn’t damage any silk, chiffon, satin, cashmere, beads, sequins or anything else you’d find on delicate garments (including wedding dresses and Asian clothing such as saris). Check out our video on how to steam a wedding dress!
Here at Fridja, we’re very shallow and we’re not afraid to admit it. We NEED our appliances to look the part. So many steamers are just FUGLY. We refused to bring out a travel clothes steamer that looked anything other than gorgeous! Sporting three colours, Raf (Black), Erin (White) and Gigi (Pink) are the best looking clothes steamers on the planet. We hope you agree!
TIME AND WEIGHT
Our clothes steamer lasts for a whopping 14 minutes MINIMUM. There’s a continuous steam button, so there’s no holding down the button either. You won’t be filling up the tank over and over again when steaming, leaving you time to get refresh fabrics and zap all the creases away!
Our f10 handheld travel steamer weighs under 900g, which is super light. That means you can steam away without any strain to your arms and shoulders!
Our f10 Handheld Travel Clothes Steamer comes with a host of accessories that are actually really useful (gasp!) Here’s a breakdown.
Water Bottle Adaptor
When travelling, you want to be as light as possible. Especially when you’re only travelling with hand luggage. We’ve all been there, you think the hotel will have an iron (which still isn’t as good as a steamer), and you get there and it’s not available. Or an Airbnb just doesn’t have an iron. So you get out your shirt or dress and it’s a crumpled mess. Nightmare. No longer we say! Instead of carrying the water bottle, just bring the water bottle adaptor! Just slot it in and use the local water!
Because it’s much easier to steam when garments are hung up, just use this!
In order to get the most sharp collar, we’ve developed the collar press adaptor, particularly awesome for shirts. Just slip this under the collar and get PERFECT collars every time.
Luxury Carry Case
We couldn’t complete our new handheld travel clothes steamer without an awesome carry case, so we didn’t! Put all your accessories and steamer in it’s home!
