Steam Pocket


Lift Away Steam Pocket Pro


Shark Steam Mops – Which To Get?

The Lift Off and Genius are the more advanced models.

You’d get them if you want more features, and specific features like no touch pad changing, the steam blaster, and more.

The Steam Pocket is the next step down from these two. It has swivel steering, and 2 sided cleaning pad cleaning.

The S1000 is the most affordable and most basic model. It lacks any standout features other than it is affordable, lightweight and compact. It’s just a ‘no frills’ steam mop cleaner.


Shark Steam Mops – Differences

The Lift Off is the only model with the ability to clean above floor level.

The Genius doesn’t have the lift off ability, but shares several similarities to the Lift Off.

The regular Steam Pocket lacks features like the Steam Blaster, hands free pad changing, and has slightly less Amps than the Lift Off and Genius models.

The S1000 is the most basic model of the 4, and has the least features. It doesn’t have features like 2 sided cleaning pad cleaning that the regular Steam Pocket has.


*Note that the limited warranties offered on each steam mop may also be different. Make sure you check and confirm what the number of years offered on the warranty is before purchasing.


Shark Steam Mops – Similarities

The Lift Off and Genius share many similarities like 3 level steam control, smart pad/no touch pad changing, same cord length, a steam blaster, and other features.

The S1000 and regular Steam Pocket are similar in that they are basic models, and are made to be cheaper and more affordable.
