Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this little vac! I love this machine. It's perfect for tile and wood floors and picks up surface debris on carpet. I use this all the time plus it's very easy to take apart for the hand held. I've definitely gotten my money's worth out of this vac! May 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Big things come in small packages Ive had this little guy around for awhile but hadn't used it that often until today! I am doing (currently taking a break) some heavy cleaning around the house and a series of events led me to have to use the Bissel 3-in-1 and to my surprise it outperforms my main vacuum which I paid alot of money for. Funny thing is though I lost the extension pole so it can only be used as a hand vacuum but it worked so well I walked around my whole house hunched over! I was so shocked I had to voice my new found respect for this powerhouse mini vac April 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Great product I had glass broken in car from kids throwing rocks and my 3 in 1 Vac done a great job. Plus! I'm disabled but my 3 in 1 Vac is light weight so I don't have to stop before I'm done. March 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Makes life easier! This is a great product. When I bought it I really didn't think it would have a lot of suction but I needed something that would go under my sofa. I was wrong! It has great suction and I use it all over the house daily and I just pull out the monster machine every couple of weeks to deep clean the large area rug in my living room. PS. Glad I found this site for ordering extra filters. Thanks Bissell! March 25, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by convenient for laminate, wood and carpet to upholstery vacuum. My first review on this was a five star review, however, the hole where the floor attachment sticks into is weak and cracked apart, however I like the vacuum so much I used gorilla glue to put it back together, unfortunately it didnt hold for too long, I will still purchase another one or look for a different one with a longer cord, but this was an excellent product except for that issue, and cord could be a couple feet.longer, so.my first 5 stars changed to 3 February 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Little Go-To You'll Go-To Bought this little stem-vac over 3+ yrs ago & its the BEST 3 in 1 Ive ever had & used. From spills, mud & grass to dogs hair. I highly recommend this vac. Easy to clean,empty & use. It picks up well on the floor & most upholstery. February 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it !! Even though I didn't think it would work as well as a bigger vacuum, I was so glad I got it. It gets the job done fast and is very easy to handle plus it's super easy to store away. I Definitely recommend it !! January 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome little vac This little vac has sooo much power! It is super lightweight and easy to use it makes you want to vacuum just to get it out, I love it! The only thing is that the plastic part where the nozzle connects seems a little too fragile in the latest models, I've had about 3 and 2 of them i had to stop using because of this problem but being so cheap I just got another one with out thinking about it twice. Overall it is an awesome little vac! January 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awsome Works very well!!I use this every day.This works much better than other products like this that I have used in the past. December 24, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't Waste Your Money I am shocked to see good reviews on this vacuum. This vacuum has extremely light suction and does not pick up the majority. I have tried it on carpet and hardwood floors. I get better results with a lint brush or by using a piece of tape. Very disappointed and would never recommend this product to anyone. December 23, 2014
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 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
