Rated 5 out of 5 by R2Dtoo An Outstanding Vacuum!
I am the Maintenance Director of an Assisted Living facility here in Utah and purchased the 22C1 Bissell to replace a Dyson model 25 that has given us problems from the day we bought it. This Bissell is AWESOME!!!! Very easy to use, quiet, convenient tool storage, powerful, and it really sucks (a very good thing!) There is no loss of suction as it fills, and it is super-simple to maintain! We use the vacuum four times a day, 7 days a week, and it has ran perfectly since the day we bought it! Plus, the price was about one-forth of what we paid for the Dyson. I highly recommend the Bissell 22C1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kayAnn Great vacuum for the price!
I've waited a couple of weeks since receiving this to post a review...and I sweep at least every other day, so have used it enough now. We have two cats and I probably should get an actual "pet vacuum" but this one was so much cheaper. Plus I researched online and compared this one to the last two vacuums I've had - which were Bissell CleanView II Plus. I loved them, and they both still run and pick up, but just wanted a new one.
This Helix was the closest I could find - wide path, headlight, dual edge cleaning, on-board tools, same type of hose and length of cord, etc. And I love this Helix as much as I did the two CleanViews (which are like 7 and 9 years old, I believe). It picks up great, and I'm already used to the size of it and how it maneuvers. The only thing I miss is that this one doesn't have the stair-handle on the front, but I'm getting used to using the actual carry-handle on the back. My favorite part is the Turbo brush!
Thank you, Bissell, for making such great vacuums at affordable prices!!

Just put it together and used it for the first time. I just love the features of this light weight Sweeper. Attachments are easy to use, and I love the Febreeze Vacuum Filter. Pleased so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by bissellstinks. the Worst!
This is the first and last Bissell I will purchase. The dust and dirt comes flying out all over every time I vacuum even if it is not full. The worst money I ever spent. I will go back to using my old hoover!

Rated 4 out of 5 by linzibinz It's (was) a great vacuum!!
I have been very happy with my Bissell. I use it to clean up all of the hair my dog leaves behind in the carpet. Every time I use it, it looks like I had the carpet shampooed. Then the suction stopped. I took it apart, cleared all the tubes and brushes, but still the suction is minimal. This is annoying and I wish there was an easy was to fix it. Given that I've had it for 2 years already and that it was a relatively inexpensive vacuum I will probably just end up buying a new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NaNa I was happily surprised!
I ordered mine on-line, and was surprised that it came in only 2 days! It picks up more carpet dirt than any other new vac I have ever owned. It is lighter weight, and the cord is longer. The surfaces requiring a wipe-down were also a surprise. Instead of having to work around posts and inside multiple wells, the surfaces are smooth and much easier on the fingers to clean. I am very happy with the Bissell brand. Thank you, sincerely, GA Klemme

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sittoo Good suction
I bought this vacuum to replace my older Bissell model and to move up a level although I was very happy with the previous model as well as the 2nd Bissell steam cleaner I own and have purchased for a daughter. I have a few complaints about this model. 1) It gives off quite a bit of heat, 2) the placement of the power cord makes it seem more for a left-handed person, 3) the hose and single wand are too short compared to my older version (I will probably use a wand from the old one to extend the new), 4) the dirt holder seems loose-fitting, and 5) if the TurboBrush gets pushed in too far it is very hard to get out without a tool to pop it forward. Despite my criticisms I am happy with this model and especially like the powerful suction, the area of suction and the Turbo Brush.
