Rated 5 out of 5 by Worrywart2 REALLY well-designed product!
First review I ever wrote, but this product -- and this company -- demand it. :-) Superb product for seniors, because it is lightweight, takes up little space, is easy to empty -- and with removeable hand vac., it's really an overall GREAT design! Had a small problem with the handle, and Bissell immediately replaced it free of charge -- no hassles whatever. I would love to see a larger model just like this, maybe stronger suction; I would certainly buy it. I think Bissell has the best products and best service in the marketplace!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 little dogs!!! Love Bissell
I purchased my Lift off about 6 months ago and have used it almost every day since purchase. It works great in my 1500sqft home. It moves from floors to carpet and the handle makes it so I can get underneath things with ease. I don't normally write about products but I love my Lift off!!!! OH I have 3 little dogs so it is getting a lot of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ldianes4321 Great little cordless vac!
More than 3/4 of my home is tiled, and I have a large furry dog, so after reading the ratings, thought this would be just what I needed. I wasn't disappointed - I love this vac! This is very lightweight & extremely maneuverable, and holds a charge long enough to do quick cleanup, or I can run through almost the entire house before running down. Also great for thoroughly getting crumbs/fur off throw rugs without sucking up the rug! Being able to quick snap off the hand-vac is really a plus. Super easy to dump out the filter.

I have central vacuum and I needed a small, lightweight vacuum for quick cleaning. This one is perfect. It really gets pet hair from carpet and hardwood floors. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chinyla sold on BISSELL
My last electric broom was a Bissell -- bought in 1984! This is light-weight enough for a senior to use, and I expect it to last until I'm old enough to need a cleaning girl -- no make that a cleaning BOY! It works equally well on hardwood, tile, slate, my one little carpet and the hand-held feature is great for upholstery and curtains.

I love this product it does a great job on my hardwood floors and on my rugs on the floors too. The best part is the cleaning it comes apart so easy to dump in the trash or use the pet cleanup on my furniture, I actually got this on a sale and I could not have made a better purchase that day. I just love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daisy90 Great for daily use
I just picked this Lift-Off Floors & More PET last week, I got tired of using my heavy vacuum. Very happy with this product, I have 2 dogs and 2 cats, it's so lightweight I can use it several times daily, I can't believe all it picks up.

Wow, this little vacuum sucks up more pet hair than I thought was there. Just got the machine so battery life isn't yet clear but its so so convenient. Does a great job on scattered cat litter as well. So far we love it.

This is a great little machine! I have a similar item in a different brand but this Bissell is far better. It's light weight but REALLY powerful. With 4 kids, 3 cats & a dog we HAVE A LOT of PET Hair and messes! It's Especially useful on the stairs, which is ALWAYS a hassle for me. I am very pleased with it & recommend it highly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doe wonderful product
the lift-off does what it claims. I have a long hair cat, and my other sweepers would get clogged up. with this
sweeper you can see when it is full. it picks up great on hard wood and carpets. Just love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mousemom Perfect for quick clean ups
I love this little stick vac! We have wood and ceramic floors only and several hairy critters. This is perfect for cleaning up quickly, much faster than a broom and dustpan and the hairballs aren't floating everywhere. You do need to dump out the dust cup after each use. And watch the roller for wound up hair and fibers, but it is super easy to clean out. The kids will even use it, because it is fun, not so much like chores.

This is a terrific vac. Had a Crofton vac and ran it back to the store. But this does everything, except do windows.
My floors & rugs are a snap to keep cleaned.
Thank you, thank you, my love

Rated 5 out of 5 by NancyT The best small cordless I have ever owned.
I have a large heavy duty upright that I use for deep cleaning, but living in a small condo, I also like to have a smaller carpet sweeper or electric broom for every day and in between full cleaning jobs. In the past I have owned a couple of electric brooms but they do nothing at all for cleaning the rugs - even the area rugs or front door mats. I started buying another brand of cordless carpet sweeper type devices, and since they have rotating brushes they would do a somewhat better job but did not last long. Over time they would seem to lose power and I would have to replace them every year or so when they stopped taking a charge.
It has only been 3 months so I wont know what will happen in a year, but I am already convinced this Bissell is the BEST. Easy to charge and lasts long enough to go over the entire condo. Two days later and there is still enough charge to touch up the hall and kitchen. Very powerful for its size and the rotating brush is super fast so it can even pick up from my thick carpet. The brush head is easy to get to and clean. The swivel head has a tapered shape that makes it easy to get into corners and the light weight is perfect for my aching knees. I use this on my hall rug, area rugs, carpet, tile floor and kitchen. I don't have pets, but maybe that feature is what is am king this device so efficient. LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by alice kay 76 year-old woman loves the Bissell Lift-Off
Fell and broke a hand and foot and found the vacuum that I owned much too heavy for me now. Bought the Lift-Off and finished charging it today and when I tried it I was so happy. Oh, it won't deep clean the carpets, but I don't expect that, either. Will hire someone to do rug cleaning. If I use the Lift-off each day, I know I can stay on top of the surface dirt and be okay with that. Even my dogs enjoy chasing the little vacuum because it is not noisy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ladydog COULDN'T BE HAPPIER WITH MY VACUUM CLEANER
I LOVE this vacuum cleaner and it is perfect for what I wanted it to do. I have a large tile kitchen, laudry room and dining room area that I couldn't keep clean between cleaning once a week. It is perfect to pick it up and no cord and whisk around the floor. I have never run out of time and couldn't be happier. Then I put it back and it is ready for the next day. If you are looking for a quick way to clean up (quiet and fast) this is the one for you. The filter is easy to clean and I don't have to clean it each time I use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mav Excellent for small apartment
This is a lightweight and versatile vacuum, perfect for cleaning a 1 bedroom apartment. Picks up most of the dirt and dust from the carpet and tiled floor. Suction is adequate though it will not pick up hair effectively due to the brush roll as it will mostly get stuck there. Not a problem to remove it manually, though. Highly recommend this for low to medium vacuuming job.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Cleaning Lady Bissell Lift Off Floor & More
It's my first electric sweeper and I was expecting more. And I can't compare it to anything else on the market that's similar. But I'm not impressed. Doesn't hold a charge for long. It is lightweight and it is better than pulling out the regular vacuum cleaner, but the vacuum cleaner is more efficient. I'll stick with the vacuum cleaner. For people who aren't as particular as me, this sweeper would be fine for light messes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Margaret134 I especially recommend this product for senior citizens
I'm a "senior" and this little vac could not be easier to use. It is light weight, easy to maneuver and has settings for bare floor and carpet. Best of all, there is no cord or hose to trip over!! I am very pleased with the performance, and hope Bissell will continue to consider the special needs of seniors in future designs. My only complaint is the 12 minute battery charge. If Bissell can find a way to produce a unit "just like this" but with longer battery life and the same features, I would purchase it in a heart beat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sandra P I am so glad I purchased this vacuum!
We have 2 dogs and their white fur shows up quite well on our hardwood floors. I only vacuumed twice a week because of the time it took with the large vacuum's hose attachment, plugging/unplugging & cord that got in the way. My husband went to the store to purchase a robot for me, but when he saw the prices, he opted to try this one out first. The BIG pluses are the ease of use with it being lightweight, cordless, small & swivels well, not to mention the inexpensive price. I plug in the narrow cord and have run it into the closet to charge. I can quickly vacuum every day for a few minutes and the floors look great! I keep the rotating brush off, so there is less friction on the wood, but turn it on when I'm vacuuming the tiled floors & the low pile throw rugs.
There are some minuses to the product. The battery does not last a long time, so vacuum accordingly (or buy more than one#. The suction is OK - you have to actually run the vacuum over the spot because it will not pick up anything outside of the unit. I do not like the way I have to empty the dirt bin because it is cumbersome and I have to use a brush to clean the filter. I tried it once on my bedroom carpet and it wasn't worth the effort #very thick, plush carpeting), although I may use it for under the bed.
I would definitely recommend this vacuum to people with hard surface flooring!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ali I want to love it!
So I bought mine on 4/7/12.. literally out of the box the handle joint didn't lock. Back to Kohls, exchanged it, today is 4/19..the handle is 2 seconds from snapping at the joint. I Google.. & it seems this a well known problem. I called cust service.. Although I felt like she was a robot with zero emotion, she told me there is a new metal handle she is sending me. I told her mine is metal, she just repeated her statements & ignored me. I will give kudos.. The suction is awesome, and battery great.. I'm almost in love. However, I paid $100,& this Site has it for $60..but no one can tell me if it already has the NEW handle. Ugh mixed emotions!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Brian Worst. Vacuum. Ever.
Doesn't have any suction power, gets clogged constantly, and only picks stuff up in the brush compartment, so when you turn it off, it all spills out. DO NOT BUY

Rated 5 out of 5 by IRB33785 Great product
We bought this for little touchups so we didn't have to bring out the big vacuum. We only have two rooms with carpet and the rest are tile so this is perfect for going from one to the other. We like that it is lightweight and very simple to use. The little handheld is convenient to use. We don't recharge after each use or empty the cup unless we have used it throughout our condo.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JLChi Starts out good, then breaks...
I was very happy with how the vacuum was working and the convenience of being battery operated, but then the handle began folding on its own, making it difficult to vacuum anywhere, and the handle then began to come out of the vacuum, exposing wires. Contacting customer service has also unproductive as they tried telling me it was my fault.

This amazing machine has been a dream! After purchasing mine, I’ve given two (2) more as gifts. It’s lightweight, very easy to handle, folds away to discreetly store, and most important, it does a tremendous job! I have three dogs and a cat with tile floors in my home and have had numerous friends comment about the ABSENCE of dust bunnies that are typically created by animal hair. You will LOVE this vacuum!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bennycat Very good concept
The swivel head with the rotating brushes, the removable hand held vac, and being cordless are very good features. The ease of using it because it is so light makes cleaning easier. My husband even likes using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Honeycleo Perfect for a small apartment
This little machine is great. It is light and easy to handle, the ability to get under furniture with little bending is a blessing. It gets into corners and tight spaces with no effort and does a great job. My old robot died and I decided to try this instead, I could not believe how much cat hair it got up. I thought my rugs needed to be cleaned but it was just a layer of fur that the robot didn't get. The added conversion to a hand held feature is an unbelievable bonus. I did my whole apartment in five minutes and the carpet looks brand new.

I no longer have to bend over with a broom and dust pan to pick up the litter that my three cats scratch onto the floor. This product is so easy to use and to empty. In fact, I purchased three and placed one near each litter station.
