Rated 5 out of 5 by Cassie O.M.G. TOTALLY EPIC!!!!!!
Let me start by saying I was skeptical at first even though I read the great reviews. Well skepticism has left the building!!! I have a 17 year old carpet that is so beastly you would have to pay me a million dollars to walk barefoot on it. Well today is payday; my carpet looks so good I just can't believe my eyes. My whole town house is carpet except for the kitchen, wash room and bathrooms. It was so bad I never turned on the lights at night because I was afraid to look at my carpet. It really is a ecru color and not brown! The amount of dirt and black particles it pulled from the carpet was incredible. It even left the carpet fluffy, smelling great and looking brand spanking new. Old pepsi cola stains gone! Make-up stains gone! Urine stains from the dog gone! Weird smell gone! Old food spills gone! Unappealing appearance gone! Bissell let me tell ya, you had me the moment I turned the machine on. Easy assembly, easy use and worth money hard earned money. The only thing I would recommend is adding a side rotating bristle(s). This will allow you to get in between the crevices where the carpet meets the wall so the dirt that gets pushed to the wall can also be cleaned up. A+++

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jen AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!
My husband and I finally broke down and bought a carpet cleaning machine after researching for a few months and I have to say that this cleaner has far surpassed my expectations with how quickly and effectively it has cleaned my carpet. My carpet is 7-8 years old and I had never deep-cleaned it (I know, really gross) and I just can't get over how much better it looks. It practically looks and feels like new again. I love that the unit keeps the clean solution hot while you work and that the dirty water tank is twice the size as the clean tank so you only have to dump it every other fill-up. The clean tank is small, but not any smaller than I had expected and I was still able to get a good deal cleaned before I had to refill. I have frieze carpeting, so I did a couple extra sweeps to make sure I had all the water pulled up and found that it wasn't really necessary to do that after some experimenting. Also, I am recovering from 2 back surgeries (7 months ago) and have not had any trouble maneuvering the machine around, cleaning, or emptying/filling the tanks. That alone has made this purchase worth every penny we paid for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marymisk Great product!
Only regret I have about this product is that I wish I had bought it sooner! I used to own another brand deep cleaner and it worked well on regular pile carpets but was horrible on low pile or berber style carpets. Well this one works great on both styles. I had been getting my great room professionally "dry" cleaned for about 4 years and although it would come out clean initially, many of the stains would reappear about 2 weeks later. After some research, I found that this problem is called "wicking" where deep set stains weep back up to the surface. Well after getting my carpet "dry" cleaned for the third time in a year, I decided that it was time to try the Bissell because of the ability to deep clean and get the dirt out deeper than the dry cleaner. I used a vinegar and water solution to neutralize the stains and not only was my carpet clean, the stains did not reappear. I have now used it several times since I am housebreaking a dog. I recently used the lift off feature and was pleasantly surprised by how well it worked too. I loved this machine so much that I bought a steam floor cleaner from Bissell as well and am equally satisfied with it. Great Product!
Cons - cord could be longer

Rated 1 out of 5 by unhappy w purchase Handle doesn't securely fit!!!!!
The 4 screws DO NOT secure the handle tight. What is the solution? Return it? This is POOR DESIGN. My Dyson everything snaps into place . This design is flawed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pet Lover New Carpet!
This was a 'last ditch" effort to save my carpet. My Shitz Su thought the whole house would be her potty spot when she was a puppy, very hard to get trained. I just used the Bissell Deep Cleaqn Lift-Off Pet and am
amazed at how beautiful my carpets look. Even professional cleaning did not do as well.
the Bissell is so easy to use. The spot lifter 2x did the job better than expected, and friends asked what I did to make my carpet look like a new carpet. You will not be disappointed with your purchase. I had an older, 15 yr. old, Bissell and needed the "heated" pet cleaner. I am so happy with this that I am going to do all my rooms

Rated 3 out of 5 by Angie Good but not good enough!
I just bought this carpet cleaner and at first I was happy with how light it is, the cord is NOT that long at all, but most of all, it spits out dirt balls as you pulling back, I used it for the first time today, and when I was done, I had about 10-12 dirt balls on the floor, your hoping that the carpet is clean, but when you see that it's not very promising, so over all I am not happy with this product, going back to the store!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynn So happy with this product
I just got my carpet cleaner in the mail two days ago. I was happy with how fast I received it and even happier about how well it worked. I have owned and borrowed a few different Bissell carpet cleaners and this one is by far my favorite. I decided to go all out and buy the one I wanted instead of as my husbands says"being cheap." I was a little worried about the lift off feature but it worked great. I cleaned 3 rooms in my house just today and I have 1 more to go. After my last bissell carpet cleaner went out (after 5 years of owning it) I haven't been able to clean my carpets in 6 months and today they came out like I haven't missed anytime.

Rated 3 out of 5 by s_simon sort of satisfied
This is my first 'new' carpet shampooer. I was reading reviews and was initially going to purchase the Bissell ProHeat 2x but the store was out of stock. Upon recommendation from the sales person.
I love the lift off feature of this product. it works well and suctions great. So far my problem is with the upright cleaner. It does not have the suction power of the lift off. it will not pull the water from the carpet as well. My carpet is soaked. However, when I pulled the lift off portion and used the hose it pulled the water far better than any other upright I have used.
This is a very pricey model. Fot this price I expect better suction from the upright. This machine is really leading the way for future generation cleaners and believe it will get better with time.
I have not decided weather or not to keep this product for fear that another machine will not clean as I expect. This is a huge investment to only half way work.
This is almost a great machine.
