Conair GS60 Review
This is a detailed Conair GS60 Review for consumers who are interested in purchasing a fabric steamer. The GS60 is a steamer for under $50; can it perform?
It’s a full-size garment steamer that is functional and compact, doesn’t take up a lot of space in a room and it rolls anywhere in a snap.
This is a unique product, because it actually has a green light indicator signaling when the steam is ready to use.

Conair GS60 Performance
Overall we were disappointed with the Conair GS60. From the moment we turned it on, it leaked all over the floor. While we have tested many compact steamers that leaked, having a full-size steamer do it is very disappointing. Possibly there are some other redeeming qualities. Well actually, no. For starters this steamer took 7 minutes and 18 seconds to heat up, which was more than the advertised 5 minutes. While this isn’t a huge amount of time, even 5 minutes is a bit long for steamers in general. Maybe it’s good at steaming when it is ready to use. Guess again. In one of our uses, water would not reach the steam head from the water reservoir as it just remained in the base, despite the green indicator light being on, signaling that it was ready to steam. Once we poured out water to half way it for some unexplained reason started to work. So when the GS60 started steaming we were ready to get some wrinkles out of clothes. With anticipation building and excitement in the air that wrinkles were going to quickly vanish we were again disappointed. Dewrinkling our first garment which was a dress shirt took a long time. We had to pull the shirt tight while steaming and after several passes it had wet streaks from spitting from the steamer. We usually test more garments but at this point we had enough.
After reading this Conair GS60 Review and you are thinking “let’s get it”, we would like to recommend that you get a crisp $50 bill and set it on fire, since the end result is going to be the same. You could probably pick blindly from all the other clothing steamer choices available and get a better steamer.
