Rated 5 out of 5 by LJ Best cleaner next to hiring a cleaning maid
I purchased this for my wife, but had to give it a test run to insure it would do the great job as stated. I was not disappointed and it is even better than advertised. I cleaned the bathroom glass doors and could not believe the outstanding results. Then I swept and cleaned the bathroom tile floors and tile sink areas. This is by all standards, the best steam cleaning tool I have ever used. I am trying to think of a way to use it in my shop. I am 75 years old.

I had an old steam buggy but the handle broke and the company is no longer around for parts. I decided to try the lift off steam mop since I was familiar with using steam to clean and had an especially difficult problem with the grout lines in my shower. I've tried everything including straight bleach to no avail, it resisted everything I could throw at it. The day I received my unit it was put to the test straight foward. Within minutes the problem was solved. The next test was on my dark clay tile floors. Again the steam mop came through with flying colors. My only complaint as others have mentioned is the need for a trigger on the handle rather on the pod itself. This way you can steam and them wipe with an old towel to pick up the loosened grim when cleaning grout.
I own several Bissell products and they have never let me down. Best of all, they listen to their customers concerns and incorporate them when making improvement to their products. Keep up the good work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by acm Love this steamer!
This is my fourth steamer and by far the most superior that I have used. I have owned a Black and Decker, Shark Vac then Steam, and Shark Superior (can't remember the exact name) and none of them cleaned as well as this product. I have a very messy husband with constant indoor and outdoor renovations, a baby who is always throwing her food on the floor and, 2 very large dogs. I recently paid a professional $500 to clean the grout on my kitchen floor. The Bissell did a FAR better job and took less time and money! It does fantastic on my tile and hardwood surfaces. I have NO complaints at all compared to the other cleaners I have used.

The Lift-Off® Steam Mop™ Hard Surface Cleaner does an amazing job. The lift off feature is great for cleaning those hard to reach areas. Our daughter just moved and the cleaner was a life saver. The steam made the job easier. Great product!

Heavy to push around. A mop and vinegar water cover more area with less effort on my hardwood and tile floors. Also I question the long-term safety of steam on wood floors.
I bought it because the reviews said how well it cleans grout. It takes the same amount of effort as a cleaner with bleach and stiff brush. You still have to get down and scrub with the special little brush, pressing the steam button at the same time, then mop up the dirty water.
On counters and glass a cleaner and rag are easier to use.
I have had mine for one week. Next week I will donate it to Goodwill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anavah Many Thanks Bissell
I love my Bissell Lift Off Steam Mop!! I couldn't believe it at first, but it cuts my cleaning time in half! I am so thrilled and impressed with this product. I have trusted Bissell since they first introduced the "Little Green Cleaning Machine" and my trust has only grown with the purchase of the Lift Off Steam Mop. Truly, the first time I used it and saw the results was a Kodak moment when I saw the pads! YUK!! And I thought my house was clean before!
I must have looked at the reviews and listened to every commercial made on Steam Mops, but Bissell was the ONLY product where people were truly and sincerely happy. I am honored to add to those testimonials. IT'S GREAT, especially the lift off.
The only draw back (and the reason I didn't give five stars) is if you have padded linoleum you need a strong arm! For some reason the scrubber pad doesn't like this type of floor! It does the job, but you have to REALLY push & pull. All other flooring, especially ceramic tile, it's a dream! Aside from this, you will never go wrong in owning this steam mop!! In my book, it's the ONLY CHOICE!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jackie 16 Heavy, Hard To Manuver Floor Cleaner
After replacing 2 Shark floor cleaners in a year, I paid more and bought this Bissell floor cleaner. I used it for the first time yesterday on my kitchen's engineered wood floors. Based on that one time, the positive features of this machine are; a sturdy body, nice accessories including 2 micro cleaning cloths, easy, complete instructions, and a manual re-wind electric cord that is adequate in length. The negative features of this machine are; required constant compression of the steam trigger for steady steam to clean floors, and the effort required to lift and push it across floors. Once filled with water it likely weighs more than 15 pounds, making it hard for me to lift and use the portable "lift off" component on other higher surfaces. This time, I am likely to wear out before the machine does.
