Yes, the hose is a little heavy, but I think you would probably be fine. It's a different motion than an iron. I wouldn't buy a cheap one as I think you would be wasting your money. If you find a cheap one on sale for really cheap, you could give it a go, but if this is something you're looking to invest in- I would research it and think about putting down at least $100-$150.
And it really is next to impossible to clean the calcium and lime from it once it's clogged. It is just better to use distilled water and not throw your money down the drain. We have about 3 or 4 steamers that are just obsolete because they had tap water in them- they lasted maybe a couple months.
