Great for grout
I purchased this steamer after a fair amount of research into steam cleaners. I like that the steam has some power behind it to blow away dirt. So far I've used it on the grout on a tile floor and in the bathroom.
For the grout, it has been amazing. Nothing seemed to get our grout clean, and with very little effort this blows away the dirt that I thought was there forever. We finally see white grout again. It's fantastic and made the cleaner worth every penny we paid for it. I've gotten a system going where I keep a towel on the floor as I steam the grout, then use my foot to run the towel over the clean part to pick up the water and dirt. It has worked out really well.
I am disappointed with the ability to tackle soap scum in the shower. I've tried the small, focused scrubber piece which does work after a while, but for a large job like a shower will take forever. I also tried the squeegee tool which is described as being for glass and tile. Unfortunately, this piece left a black mark on the tile that I am still trying to get off. I find that using a razor blade on soap scum is more effective. Maybe once I get the soap scum off this will help to maintain it, but I'm leery of using the tile attachment because of the mark it left. The squeegee did work well on the mirrors. The steam does shoot out the side so it resteams a portion of the mirror, but I just go over that with the squeegee with no steam coming out to clear it off.
Also in the bathroom, I broke off a hinge cover on the toilet. The hinge cover is plastic, so I believe it got too hot and melted enough to break. Disappointing, but more my fault than the steamer's.
It seems to keep steam alright. When I use the larger attachments the red light some on more frequently, which is to be expected since I'm using more steam.
Overall, I'm happy with my purchase simply because of the grout, and anything else it does is more of a bonus. I do wish it came with an attachment between the size of the floor scrubber and the focused scrubber - something 3 or 4 inches wide would be a good size to do the bathtub and counters.

Made the work much quicker.
I started to remove wallpaper "by hand" using vinegar, water and a scraper. While this worked well, it was tedious and time consuming. I got the steamer about a month ago. It only took me 1 afternoon to remove the rest of the wallpaper in 1 room. It works great!
Now I have moved on to steam cleaning the grout on my kitchen tile floor. I am amazed (and disgusted) by how much dirt is coming up. I wash my floor weekly, but apparently I have not been getting the grout clean enough! It is very time consuming, but I have a large kitchen. You can really see a difference between where I have cleaned, and where I have yet to clean. The quality of the steamer is averaged\. The little scrub brushes are wearing out already. The extension wands on the handle feel like they might break if you pushed too hard, but for the money, the product is acceptable. I recommend if you have wallpaper to remove.

Wagner Power Steamer 915
While the power steam does function well as a steamer, the quality is aweful.
I have had the machine for just over two years. It was used just for general floor clean and counter tops. Certainly nothing heavy duty.
Just after the first year one of the extension rods broke and I had to order a new one. Of course I had to puchase it and pay for shipping.
Two months later the trigger broke. I guess if you press down on the floor, the quality is just no good enough to handle the pressure.
The product needs to be made with studier parts.

I enjoy cleaning with this machine but the instruction manual is poor.
I'm happy I purchased it; however, the manual does not explain how the two jet nozzles are to be used. What is the purpose of the brass nozzle? Under what circumstances should it be used? Also, where does the cleaning towel go? Not a word is said about where and how the cleaning towel is to be used....it doesn't fit the steam plate, squeegee or large cleaning brush. Explanation please! Also, what is the purpose of the two spring plates on top of the large cleaning brush? Are they supposed to do something because they do not. HELP!!

Amber light comes on after 1 minute of use
I have the same problem as another reviewer here. I have used my steamer twice and the second time I put the water in and waited for the green light. after about a minute of use, the amber light comes back on and the steam does not seem to come out with much force. Also, if you walk away from it to let it reheat, when you first go to use it, it shoots hot water out over everything before it turns to steam. I am hoping either Wagner or QVC will will take care of this problem.

The product has great features and attachments
I have used the machine twice and have been pleased with the results. Got the grout in my floor bath tiles clean again. Also worked well on the shower doors. Since I have vinyl in my kitchen, dining area and hallway, the one cleaning rag provided was not enough to do the job all at once without rewashing several times.
Other than the above issue, so far I'm pleased with the product.
