I love this steamer. It's my first steamer ever so I don't have much to compare it to. But it comes with a lint plate that you can place on plate of steamer which I love. It also came with a cup to fill the steamer with water. PLEASE read instructions before use. It will save you from a garment scare. I tested it on a old piece of clothing first and it sent out fumes that smelt burnt and is on my old clothing piece which is fine, but I think smell came from it being off an assembly line then boxed. But below is a picture of my dress that I started steaming. It's very easy to use and small enough to be considered compact.
