Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I needed a stick Vacuum and looking all over I decided to buy the Bissell Vacuum Stick. kmart had a great price. I assembled it with the help of my Husband and started vacuuming. To my great delight it made the job quick and easy. It cleaned as if it were better than a regular high priced stick. This is an amazing Vacuum. My neighbor even borrowed it and raved how she swept through her whole house with ease. December 5, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Does Not Suck, Literally We purchased this 3-in-1 vac for our RV, thinking you can't go wrong with a Bissell product and it would be easy and compact to store. The suction power leaves something to be desired, the handle is uncomfortable, the attachment for vacuuming does not have a brush with bristles. I tried it on both no nap carpet and on linoleum. The only way to get anything up is to make sure the 2 inch opening on the attachment is directly over whatever you are vacuuming. I used it once, it would barely pick up lint. I gave up and got out the Dirt Devil hand vac that this was suppose to replace. I cleaned it up, put it back in the box and will be donating it to the local Hospice thrift store. I would not recommend this product. November 10, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Scratches my hard wood floors Loved the idea of a lightweight cleaner.Unfortunately, it scratches my hard wood floors and laminate floor! Very disappointing.... I' ve had other Bissell products that have performed better... November 8, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by it is decent I got this because I needed something for my hardwood floors because my dog and cat shed realllllly bad. I hate sweeping all the time. I have used this multiple times.. I feel like it over heats, you have to go super slow over the floor if not you will have to go over it a few times. The dustbuster part blows air out so you are constantly having to go over the floor to make sure you got everything. I mean yes it works for what I needed but I think it could have some more work to improve it. Not sure if I recommend it to others. October 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by convenient for laminate, wood and carpet to upholstery vacuum. This vacuum.works great especially for price, very convenient for laminate floors without scratching, works great on carpets and easy to convert to hand vac for furniture, I love it, just wish the cord was a few feet longer. Great value for such a great price, I am very pleased!! September 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features I really love my bissell broom. I like that i can take it off the handle & change from the foot motor to the crevice cleaher & completely take it off the hadle. September 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by WHAT A GREAT LITTLE VACUUM & BARGAIN …Bachelor Review Here Most reviews tell how great it is. They were 100% correct too. It's cheap, yet it is EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE to vacuum up any and all I have used it for. It's also very easy to clean the ez off plastic dirt collector and easy to clean a small, cone shaped filter that sits inside the pop of dirt collection receptacle. After I bought one, I bought one for the x wife and one for my daughter too … upon their request, after seeing how good mine was. They love theirs too (one was pink, one was red, mind is grey). Only cautions to note …. (1) made of light weight plastic (as you can only expect at this low price) so if you bang it around or drop it, I am sure it will break the plastic (not happened to mine and I did drop it a couple times; lucky me). (2) It does not stand up on its own very well (just a thin stick) so be careful about how you lean it or position it, so don't drop it and (3) from the reviews, I gathered that if you want it to keep its GREAT SUCTION POWER when it is new, it is extremely important to clean the dirt receptacle and the filter after every use … and that is very easy to do. Directions tell how to clean it properly, including the filter and tell you DO NOT RUN IT WHEN the cleaned parts are still wet! THANK YOU BISSELL for giving us such an effective, light way STICK VACcUM at such a great price. Even a no-longer-married bachelor can easily enjoy this cleaning tool. I was very surprised and impressed at the QUALITY/EFFECTIVENESS for the low price!! September 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great little vac! I was looking for a small vac that I could use on my tile floors and I was hesitant at first because of the low price, I wondered how something so cheap would work but I gave it a try and I love it! It's perfect for my floors. It comes apart easily to break down to a hand held. I only wish it had a swivel head, this is why I gave only 4 stars. This is a a great value! September 5, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for hard wood I have this product, in fact I have two. I've been to 3 Walmart in the Memphis Tn area and can't find the filters for them. Mine are at least 6 yrs. old so my husband just bought a new one. It's really going to hack me off when I can't find filters. Sandra July 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by versatile and gift worthy I happened upon this product while looking for something small and lightweight for my daughter to use in her dorm room. I was very pleasantly surprised at the cleaning job that it does and I love the versatility of it. I have since purchased many more of these. As a realtor, I think this product makes a great little listing or closing gift for my clients, for quick and easy clean ups! In fact, I am on my way to purchase another to give to my elderly former neighbor who has just moved into a retirement village. He is 98 and will need something for light cleaning in his new home. I think this will be perfect thing! July 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little vac I had my carpet ripped out and tile floor installed. I have a very messy house mate and needed something for quick clean-up. I ended up buying 2 Bissell 3 in 1s, one for each end of my house. These are the best little sweepers! They have made my life so much easier. I highly recommend them for solid surface floors and they don't do a bad job of surface cleaning tightly woven rugs. I rarely ever drag my big vacuum out anymore. These little Bissells are great! June 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little Vac I bought this to keep on my boat. Don't let the lightweight of it fool you. It has great suction. Stores easily too, Just wish there was a brush attachment. Definitely would recommended to others! Love it! May 5, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by No I purchased this vacuum because I have no carpet in my home and I dislike sweeping. It worked great for the two 5 minute times I used it and then it would no longer turn back on. I tried different outlets and it still didn't work. I was very disappointed that I wasted money on this. April 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this light weight Vac! I started out reading reviews about the Dyson slim and was googling vacs for tile and hardwood floors. This Vacuum had great reviews all around. Not the mixed reviews that the rest got. I like that it's corded. You just get more power than cordless. I love this vacuum. If your looking for something to vacuum carpet this isn't it! It did a great job on my tile and wood but the carpet needed more suction. This is exactly what I was looking for! Thanks Bissell for savings me lots of money!!! April 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful vacuum This is my second 3-in-1 vac from Bissell. Absolutely love it. Our new home has all tile floors and we have two cats who shed. This little vac picks everything up quietly and efficiently. Only gripe is no one seems to carry the little filters so I ordered a bunch from Bissell on line to keep on hand. Will see how quickly I receive. Shipping was free with $20 order so that is a plus. I hope Bissell keeps making all these wonderful lightweight vacuums. They are great!!!!!!!! March 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Great for Cheerios! This thing works better than my $300 shark vacuum. I have all hardwood floors tho, it doesn't work as well on rugs. But if you need a quick and cheap way to pick up food thrown by a toddler, get this. I have had it for 7 months and still works great. March 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by good, but.... I use a large dust mop to sweep my hardwood and tile floors. the vac is great for picking up the grit left behind when I lift the dust mop to shake it out outside. However the tile grout lines were a little rough when using the floor attachment. The little plastic nub on the bottom that holds the dirt container on broke off and now the container won't stay on. It needs to be beefier. February 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by lite weight I like it cause it so easy too useI can use it even with my bad back] ....... does the job for me on hard wood floors an the rugs i have in my rooms January 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pet Hair Gone Have very dark wood floors & a pure white dog that sheds everyday., my expensive other vac would not pick up hair on wood floors, furniture, bedding, etc This little gem is a maricle worke .r. . I use it on my bedding, saves me from washing daily, as dog prefers to take naps under covers, For an old lady on a fixed income the price was great. I got a whole lot more than I expected. Thanks Bissell January 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great!!! I love the Vac...so easy to handle and lightweight. It works great on my carpet and hardwood floors and I love how easy it is to switch over to do the furniture. It was a nice Christmas gift for myself and inexpensive. December 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Versatile This vacuum works very well and because it detaches it works in smaller and harder to reach spaces. I love it! December 14, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love IT Love it..i have hardwood floors and kitty little. great to clean up both. December 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Didn't Know What To Expect This wonderfully light weight power house is just what this retired female needed for light, touch-up cleaning. I have to sweep almost every day because I'm a feline fanatic sharing my home with several cats. This little dynamo takes in the hair like my heavier vacuum, even better on bare floors. Since I have arthritis affecting my hands I highly recommend it especially if you have physical limitations, to anyone for it's lightweight versatility. December 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I needed Was looking for a light vacuum. Had researched but was overwhelmed by the choices. I had just recently purchased a Bissell "steam boost" and was very happy with it. Saw this one and decided to take a chance. I love it. LIght, cleans well, stands up, pushes easily. The price was so reasonable that the next day I went out and bought another one and gave it to my sister as a gift. October 30, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by MASSIVE FAIL This product is junk. Do not waste your money on it. Not enough suction, have to go over same spot multiple times. Small dirt container. Handle does not stay locked on after only 2 months; falls out while vacuuming. Vents for motor blow dirt, dust and hair around. This is a Dustbuster with a handle and cord. Bissell engineer's should be ashamed of themselves as well as the people that made the decision to but this useless waste of money in the store for sale. October 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect little vacuum I love this vacuum as I was using it last night I said outloud to my husband "How have I never owned one of these before?" It's quick and easy to use.. Even my 10 year old was begging to clean! October 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Stick Vac I'm glad I brought this. It is handy to have for small jobs around the house. And, it is affordable. Thank you.. October 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love, love love this vac This is probably one of the best purchases I've made. I've owned mine a little over 2yrs now & I'm about to buy one for my daughter. Great suction, lightweight, easily maneuvered. I do empty it & clean the filter often. Unfortunately, I have to drag out my large, cumbersome vacuum once in a while for my rugs and carpeted areas but this little gem is awesome for quick cleanup & I love it for my hardwood & tile floors. In my opinion, the only thing that would make this better is a longer cord but I just use an extension cord. October 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 3-in1 Vac I love this vacuum! We have wood floors throughout the house. I have been using the Swiffer Vac and it's started not keeping it charge after 8 months. I will never purchase a rechargable vacuum ever again. I purchased the Bissell 3-in-1 Vac and have never looked back. I love it. It actually picks up the dust and pet hair. October 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love It!!! I love my 3 in 1. I have 3 dogs and it is so light weight and picks up all the dog hair. Does a great job on my furniture too. I vacuum everyday when I get home now. Only have 1 suggestion, a cordless version. October 4, 2013
