Rated 5 out of 5 by CS I love the Bissell 5200 Flip-It
I Love the Bissell 5200 Flip-It. Okay --- so it doesn't work great on the carpets. But I don't use it on the carpets. I use the hard floor cleaner side only. I have one for home and another for our store. Please let me know when you have the Bissell 5200 Flip-It available again, since it is out of stock currently. I need a new one.

I am very disappointed in this product. Hard to push and does not clean floors well especially as vacuum. I only wish I could return but have thrown box away. Money wasted for sure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BB206 Bad Purchase
I purchased this as a gift for my Mom thinking it would make things easier for her. 1 month later she finally told me she hated it. I thought it was typical "Mom" complaints. The joke is on me as I'm now cleaning her house. This thing doesn't suction at all. I've checked #and rechecked# everything it said to check and the collection cup gets a teaspoon of dirty solution water in it. And you can only guess, the rest of the dirty water is on the floor. What a piece of junk and a total waste of money. I'm disappointed as I'm a dedicated Bissell user. Guess I'll go back to the cheapy Swiffer mop. It works must better than this thing!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pinky1 WOW! VERY DISAPPOINTING!
I received my flip it hard floor cleaner last week, I have tried it twice now in that time. I am SO VERY UNHAPPY & DISAPPOINTED with this mop! I read the instructions about the mopping pad needing to be wet, so I made sure I was very careful to follow the instructions! It left dirt and streaks all over my floors and the brush pad was NO better!
I can't remember the last time I was so unhappy with a product!
Definitely will be returning this and NOT RECOMMENDING this to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gulf Floridian Great product!
I have bought this product for family weddings and bridal showers. It has always been a great gift with continual compliments as the couples use the flipper. I finally bought another for myself after my original purchase quit from 5 years of daily service on all-floors ceramic tile in a 3 bedroom house with multiple pets and family members. The secret to the machine's long life is to clean and dry the machine parts after use including the rubber components and internal channel section that goes to the dirty water container.

Ive had the Flip it for many years and it has always done a great job. I'm almost 80 now and it's easy for me to use and cleans up any mess or dirty floor as needed. I love it. We have had 3 dogs and several cats over the years, as well as 2 grand children that live here, since Ive had this Bissell and it has made my life easier then it would be trying to clean up with a mop and a bucket of water. Never had any problem. You do need to clean it after use; I get a lot of animal hair in mine when I am finished because I may not have vacuumed first, but it is such a pleasure to be able to walk across the floor barefoot and feel how clean it is when I am done. Kudos to Bissell for the Flip It

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emmiedam This machine does a beautiful job!
Your flip-it has transformed my floors! I have hard tile floors that were stained with old floor polishes from previous tenants. Everytime I use this, more of the build up is coming off! I agree with some other comments about reading the guide for all details. I also agree with other comments that some of the parts are frail for wear and tear. Yes, cleaning it every time reduces the breakdown of materials, as well Bissell's cleaning solution is not harsh. I do tell other people about this product. So, my future hope is that Bissell will have parts available for when I need them. I plan on purchasing one of the steam mops in the future in order to restore and polish my floors myself. ;-) Thanks, Bissell!

Looks interesting. Bought it for quick clean ups. Still waiting for the missing parts. Will update then.
