Rated 5 out of 5 by Barron's Mom WONDERFUL MACHINE
WOW what a machine this is. I just love it. This is a Birthday present for myself I order this yesterday 1/23/2014 from Bed Bath & Beyond and It arrived today 1/24/14 I also got 20% off with their coupon and free shipping Can't beat this deal. As soon as the machine was unpacked I was cleaning my carpets I cannot believe how great they look. I have 130lb Rottie that brings in a lot of dirt on his feet even after I try to wipe them off. This machine is by far the best I have ever used. It will give you a work out but it was well worth it .Im telling you they look brand new I have never written a review before, but couldn't wait to give this 5 stars. Usually I have buyers remorse after spending this much money on something (398.95)but not this time I'm just so happy with it. Easy to use love the forward and back motion for cleaning and sucking up the dirty water..
Water stayed hot the whole time Hope this helps if you are on the fence about purchasing this great carpet cleaner

Rated 5 out of 5 by dirtydog One Word - WOW !
My dog is having issues with food and vomiting/bile. He had another bad day on Monday of this week and he jumped off my bed and proceeded to vomit red all over my light colored carpet. argh! I used the oxy clean spray but this was a very red stain and the area after many many times turned out pink.
My parents have a hoover and while ok, it left the carpets really wet. After reading all the reviews on the Bissell line it seems this top of the line model was the one that recieved all the good reviews. I ended up renting it at Lowes for $25 before spending this much money.
The stain I did not think was going to come out as the first few passes did not do much. No worries, just pulled the trigger and went back and forth a few more times and could not believe that the stain was coming out! I did this about 15-20 times and my carpet now looks new!!! I did use Arm and Hammer with oxy clean soap.
Just blew me away of how it got the stain out, I am sold!

I purchased the Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine about three weeks ago because my Pro Heat 2x Deep Cleaner decided enough was enough. After using the Big Green, I found it easier to clean carpets. It has a bigger tank than the Pro Heat and seems to clean better too. For those who can afford to purchase it, I would recommend it, if not you can also rent it from Lowe's. You will notice a big difference in how much better your carpet will look with the Big Green Machine. Also, be sure to use the cleaner that is included with the machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rocketman Fantastic and I'll tell you why...
I used to rent the Rug Doctor from the local supermarket once/year. It became a hassle trying to do 2 living rooms and 3 bedrooms in one 24 hour period before the rental expired.
I got old. Now I just want to do my rugs and carpets when IWANT to at MY schedule.
This is better than rug doctor. It is equally as well built (sturdy, no toy), but it cleans and sucks out the water better than RDoctor.
I wanted to use it quickly to make sure it operated correctly but I didn't yet have any shampoo. So all I used was hot tap water for one bedroom, just to make sure the darn thing worked.
It sure did. It took out entire stains with just hot water and the dirty water from that one bedroom (cleaned WITHOUT the benefit of a shampoo ingredient-Just hot water) was black. After I got shampoo I did it again, of course, and got even more dirt out. Love this thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Over 40 Just WOW!
I shampooed my home with my 12 year old Hoover brush cleaner a week ago. Not fully satisfied I decided to bite the bullet and spend the money on this one. Cream carpet etc upstairs first. Sure it was good it seemed but I still wasn't sure. Then....the stairs with cream carpet. I upgraded the attachment that hasn't come in yet so used the one that came with it. Mind you, I'm NEVER impressed with stair attachments. WOW The 10 year old carpet looks almost new. The suction? WOW So then came the real test. My family room. 3 large dogs and newer chocolate carpet that I can see the walking dirt path. Will it pick up anymore dirt? I mean it has only been a week right? Like sludge. EWWW It really should have been done again but will wait until the weekend. Sometimes we just feel like a purchase was really worth it. Doesn't happen often but this really was one of them. I won't lie though, I am a very fit 40 something female and it is a bit of a workout. Its a heavier unit and if it were a lawnmower I'd say make it self propelled. It's love...I wish Bissell made tile cleaners and vacuums this awesome. Oh, I did vacuum with my Dyson dog cleaner. Totally missed a ton of hair. The smell of the shampoo got lots of bad reviews. I am scent sensitive and while too strong from the bottle, it isn't bad and goes away once dry. Thumbs up on this cleaner!

Worked wonders on my carpet that truly needs to be replaced. The burbur carpet is over 15yrs old and has endured many pets and their issues. This machine has done just as well as the professionals. The stains came back after drying of course so it's not a miracle worker and nor is it to be expected for such old stains. It's very user friendly, the hot tap water stays hot so I didnt notice nor miss the heater that my old machine had. This one is well worth the extra money compared to all the others. I would definitively recommend it, especially if it has the longevity of my old one that died after 17yrs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marie57 Worked Better Than I Imagined
First: The Bad News -- I never realized just how filthy my carpets were.
Now: The Good News -- When the massive box this came in arrived through UPS, I DREADED opening it and the prospect of beginning the laborious process of assembling the cleaner and reading the directions. I needn't have worried. Well-packaged, the cleaner was out of the box and ready to go in less than 5 minutes. NO assembly to speak of and easy to understand directions - there is nothing complicated here folks. But the real test was cleaning the carpet After the first swipe, I had to run and get a camera to show the noticeable difference. Our dining room carpet is OLD and while we have a GREAT vacuum cleaner & had used our old carpet steam cleaner, I couldn't have been more surprised at the results of the Bissell. I like the scent of the cleaner and the two separate tanks means you're not washing your carpet with dirty water. The tanks snap on easily and take the guesswork out of "Is it sealed?". (Unlike my old machine that I would have to fire up to see if it was sucking up the cleaner.) The next test was drying time and would the carpet look better when it was dry. The carpet was dry in just a few hours and looked amazingly good. We have several cats and I immediately noticed a difference in the way the carpet felt on my bare feet as well as the air quality in the room. I am so glad that I purchased this machine and have been telling everyone in my family about how pleased I am. This is the real deal and if you want your own professional style cleaner to have at your disposal, I highly recommend this one. THANK YOU for a GREAT product!
