I got the Shark GS500 Press & Refresh Garment Steamer after my upright steamer stopped working (conveniently shortly after warranty expired…). So this was an impulse purchase, I had to have something, since I steam my dress shirt and pants every morning before work.

So lets start with the Good:
It works. It provides extremely hot steam at a good rate. The “ironing plate” at the top actually helps. I guess one could say this product actually delivers.

The bad, and the reason i returned it:
1) Very heavy, which makes it clumsy, it’s very hard to use at an angle etc.
2) Very little water reserve.
3) For my needs I needed something that I could hang the garment, and i have the space.
4) The little pad where the steam comes out kept popping out. (not a biggie if you ask me)

So to sum it up, if you live in a place that will not accommodate a standing steamer, this is an excellent choice. Though it will take counter space ūüôā (Something must give)

If you have the space I highly recommend the Jiffy Steamer J-2000 Residential Series 1300-Watt Garment Steamer. ¬†The one thing about the Jiffy Steamer is that at the first few uses it won’t produce as much steam as it should. ¬†So give it a few uses break in period. This is the one I ended up getting and I use it now daily.


1 head cauliflower,
cut into florets
1 onion, cut into chunks
3-4 cloves garlic,
4-5 cups vegetable stock, depending on how thick you like your soup  (You can use 1 qt of water and 4 table spoons of Osem Vegetable Consomme).
1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
1 tablespoon curry paste



Cut the cauliflower to florets (remove stems), Also cut the onions into chunks as well as half the garlic.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Place the cauliflower, onion, and garlic on a baking sheet (make your life easier put it over an aluminum foil). Bake until crispy, 30 minutes or so.



Combine vegetable stock, coconut milk, and curry paste into a pan and get to a boil. Add the roasted vegetables and reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.



In 2 or 3 batches use a Blender/mixer and mix it until nice creamy. (About 1 minute on medium then high)



Sprinkle some fresh ground black pepper and Viola ! Enjoy the most delicious soup!
