When working in customer's fridge, not only do I sanitize my hands and wear latex gloves, but once finished, I use the steamer to quickly "decontaminate" the areas of fridge/freezer I touched. This is true, particularly after having to almost fit my entire body in the freezer to do something on an evap. Customers like that touch. Not really sure how much "decontamination" it does but it's the sizzle that sells.
Speaking of sizzle, one time the hose slipped out of my hand and the nozzle "decontaminated" some skin on my stomach. Although many extremely vulgar four lettered exclamatory words were rapidly building to a massive eruption, due to the nearness of a customer, the only word that came out was a soft spoken "ouch." Trust me when I say, a subdued "ouch" will do nothing, whatsoever, to abate the pain. So be careful.

I use this one:
The HAAN HS-20
It is FANTASTIC. Multiple attachments, produces steam fast, long lasting, and very powerful.

$19.99 at XS cargo . I use this almost every day.
To melt ice , clear drain tubs , check air passages and it will not melt plastic or Styrofoam.
Huge time saver .
We have all seen the Kitchen aide Bottom freezer with a sheet of ice on the bottom.
Do not remove all the food , do not remove any shelfing , after removing the sheet of ice , stick the 90 on the end of the long hose bend the back panel slightly and blast out the drain tube . Remove compressor cover and replace or modify grommet .
Total job time 20 min. You will never go back to a heat gun or hair dryer .

Switched to the steamer a while ago. Best decision I have made. Works great!
Yep, me too. I knew there had to be a better way to defrost evaporators and clear drain lines. Works great!
I went with the "Samurai Ninja Star 5000" model - aka McCulloch MC1235 1300-Watt Handheld Steam Cleaner

I always assumed the steamer wouldn't melt plastic....ooops. In trying to free an ice clog in a GE door dispenser, wound up melting and paddle and the holder. dohhh.

Mine holds about a gallon or more and it takes a while to warm up. I figure I use about a quart to 1/2 gallon to defrost a refrigerator. I like that SteamFast's McCulloch MC-1235 Handheld Steamer. Is anybody using it? Is it really ready to go that fast?
