The Kärcher SC5 is what I would describe as the Rolls Royce of steam cleaners. This is the complete product which will tackle any problem you send it’s way and will do almost everything better than any of the other products discussed on this website. The high performance comes at a much higher price tag, though.


  • The unit features a ‘twin tank’ which, like other models, allows the steam cleaner to be refilled while in use, allowing for continuous steam cleaning
  • The unit has a VapoHydro function which releases blasts of hot water if the steam output is not enough to remove dirt or stains
  • Comes with an array of attachments making it versatile and able to tackle any job
  • It also comes with the optional function to attach it to a Kärcher steam iron


  • The main benefit with this steam cleaner is that is, to put it lightly, a complete beast in comparison to most other steam cleaners on the market. 2300 watts of power make this a really incredible piece of machinery
  • The water tank has a huge capacity which means it will last much longer than other models, but if that isn’t enough, you can refill during your cleaning session and still experience continuous steam production
  • The fact that the steam pressure output is higher means that you will save time, as tougher stains and adhesives are much easier to tackle with higher steam output
  • The attachments that come with this product make it really versatile and means that you can use it on pretty much any surface you’d like


Ultimately there is not much I can say about this product, other than it is the best of the best. The price tag is large, and if you’re considering this product I can only imagine you are either fanatical about cleaning, or have a large house with a large array of surfaces that need to be cleaned on a regular basis. This product is going to perform second to none in comparison to its competitors, so if you feel that the price is worth the benefits and use you are going to get out of it, I would encourage you to go for it!
