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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DIYHomecare Try this!
I love my steamer! It works great and heats up quickly. I found another useful chore for the steamer this summer. I needed to remove wallpaper from my lavatory as part of a remodeling. I just removed the little hand held steamer unit and held the steamer pad up to the wall for about 20 seconds and the paper peeled off easily! This really made my work go smoothly and I didn't have to rent a large heavy steamer! Fabulous!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lori Dee Easy to Use, Works Great
This is my 1st. steam mop & I'm glad I chose it. Very Easy to use, the lift off feature is a great idea & so easy to use.
Have 2 Labradors who are in & out of the white tiled kitchen all day & nite, in all types of weather. This steam mop cleans so well just once a week, all I have to do is damp mop when they track in mud between "steamings" Wish I'd gotten one long ago.
The mop pads & attachments work very well & make grubby
grout look new.
The floor dries very quickly, so the dogs & my husband can walk on it again right away!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BoB Handiest cleaning tool since the vacuum
We've had Lift-off vacs for years, we wore out the first Bissell, then bought another. When our last steam cleaner, (for floors only, not a Bissell), quit working after about 14 months, we talked that maybe we wouldn't get another. Then we saw the Lift-off. It's first job was cleaning up the grout in the bath of the old house we bought. It was great! It cleaned the grout back to white and with a coat of sealer it looks like new. Of course while in the room, the floor, fixtures, countertop, even the mirror got cleaned. Before putting it away, I just had to try it on our marble floor in the front hall and foyer. Great again. Put all the pads in the washing machine, wiped off the steamer and it's ready to go again. Also, very handy that it stands up by itself in the closet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dawn1000 Disappointed
I had high hopes for the Steamer, but was very disappointed when I used it. I started out by using it on my tile floor. It soaked the floor with water. I placed my hand on the floor as I went over it with the unit and the floor was cold. So no way is this steamer killing any bacteria.
I then tried the unit on my counter top. The steam was fine with the small hand held unit, but still soaked by counter tops with water. I sent the unit back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by foxtrottinlady Hard to manuever
I thought I would like the convenience of having the lift off steamer to use for other cleaning projects. But, trying to use it on the tile and hardwood floors, that made it too big and bulky in my house and the steam head would not go easily under/around my furniture. By the time I did the hard floors downstairs, both my shoulders were aching. Returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stpeteroy Improvement on old bissel
I bought your steam cleaning Bissel 3 years ago and I was very happy with the job it did. I have 3 dogs and porcelain tile floors throughout the house. I wore out 4 micro cleaning pads . Saw the new design of your machine and thought I would try it I am very pleased with the results and the resigned micro pads. Easier to put on, larger, and tools that make cleaning easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Julie33 Hard working partner
Spring cleaning was how I kick started my Lift Off Steam Mop. I used it first on tile grout with a great little brush attachment that came with the machine; this worked well for the tiled shower and countertops with the lift off steamer. I moved to the toilet and used the steam head to loosen all dirt around the seat Screws and hard-to-reach areas. This feature also is great for the shower door tract. I used the flat microfiber pad for the shower door and it removed the scale.
The upright floor cleaning with the large pad worked well for both linoleum and hardwood floors. I purchased extra pads which I recommend if you are going to tackle whole-house cleaning at one time. I like the fact that no harsh cleaners are necessary. I cleaned my oven door, my refrigerator handles and water dispenser, faucets. So impressed with this unit, I would recommend it highly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jerjuice Lift-Off Steam Mop fails to deliver
I just bought this product and I was psyched about the detachable cleaner but was disappointed since it doesn't seem very powerful and tended to drip so I used my Shark model that I had. I guess I will have to keep both and should have bought the cheaper steam cleaner. I love the bigger head on this model though and the fact that it stands itself up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Franimal Works great even on really dirty floors
I have a large kitchen linoleum floor and it gets really dirty. I usually scrub it on my hands andd knees. With all the snow we've had my floor was a mess and would have taken me two hours to clean it. The lift off cleaner worked great and in half the time. Glad it had two microfiber pads ! It worked well and will help me keep my floors clean

Rated 5 out of 5 by JKT32 Nice multi-use tool
I chose this steam mop because of all the multi-use options and the fact I have other Bissell products that have held up well. This mop cleaned my tile floors really well. The mop used enough steam to clean the floors but didn't soak them like standard mopping. VERY FAST dry time. The cord is very long which I find nice and the 20 oz water tank held plenty of water for cleaning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hank2014 Good Machine
I purchased this for my wife, so of course I was the one to use it. I read all the reviews prior to purchasing and some people had some harsh things to say. It was my opinion that the machine worked as advertised. When I had hard grime on my laminate I turned the dial to tough and it came up. When I was just cleaning the floors it also worked very nicely.
Some people stated they had streaks after using the steam mop, well I did also, if you looked at the right angle and the light caught it just right. No matter how many streaks I saw it stilled looked better than before I used the steam mop. Also there were comments about too much water coming out of the machine, not sure how this is happening but I have not experienced this yet, just lots of steam.
All in all I was very pleased with the product and I was especially pleased with the price. Bissell, with their coupon on here sold the product significantly below the retail or even off retail price.
Please note I have only used the machine twice but I was very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Too old to crawl Great lightweight machine
Use the lift off steam cleaner on kitchen tile and laminate flooring in the dining room and it does a fantastic job. I have three dogs that track in several times a day after running around in the mud and dirt. Pull out the steam cleaner and go over the floor and we can wear our socks without being embarrassed when you look at the bottom of them. Love it. I am sixty years old and needed to give up my lifetime habit of mopping on my hands and knees.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lori Not happywith this sweamer
I don't like that you have to continually hold the steamer button when its off the stick. But that's the least of my problems the floor part is so hard to move around the floor and it doesn't shoot out with steam like I thought it would, it kind of just wets the floor.
I'm very unhappy with this because I owned a Bissell hand held steamer for many years a I love it but they don't sell that one any more. So I asked my daughter to buy me this one for Christmas thinking it would be just as good as my old one. But I was sadly disappointed. And I bought this for my sister in Florida as a gift thinking it was going to be as great as the old one. Maybe there is something I'm doing wrong with this I wish I had a video to watch about this.

Had trouble getting it to steam. Found it cumbersome and hard to control due to the swivel feature. Spent and hour on my hands and knees removing the ugly streaks it left on my sealed hardwood floors. Will be returning.

The quality of this Bissel Steam Mop is substantially higher and works so much better than our previously owned Shark. The Bissell is easy to use and the floors come out cleaner than they ever did before. I will never buy another brand again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Akacha Amazing Steam Cleaning, Little Effort...
I used my new Lift-Off Steam Mop for the first time and was amazed at the how much dirt and grime it removed from my ceramic tiles. Ten years of "traditional" moping and machine "scrubbing" was no match. The Steam Mop removed so much ground in dirt that I'm embarrassed to say, the pads looked filthy black. I'm glad I bought two extra pads when I first ordered my Steam Mop. I can now see the original color of my tiles! The grout between the tiles are also clean and bright. I don't know why I waited so long to go steam cleaning...

I really like my Bissell steam cleaner! This product replaced my well known brand steam n vac, my 2nd one in one year. The Bissell cleans better and I am very hopeful it will last more than 6 months. I have always been satisfied with Bissells products and will never buy a Shark again! I use it on my wood floors as well as travertine tile with great results

The lift-off steamer makes cleaning my tiled kitchen floor a pleasure! It's clean & sanitized in no time! ( and w/2 dogs I appreciate that) it also cleans my hardwood floors using the lighter setting. I would highly recommend this steamer!

I have told all my friends about my new "toy"! I have the smaller steamer at my Northern house and I do love that it is more Lightweight. However in Florida I have all tile and lots of white surfaces. The removable steamer keeps everything looking bright and clean. I can even clean the grout. I'm not crazy about having to keep pressing the steam button though. This is a very good product for tiles and corian counters.

So far so good. It works like a chAmp for cleaning grout and tile floor. It was not useable around the toilet area ( mop head to large)but luckily there is the bathroom brush to use for that area, although not ideal. But still like the product and how it cleans.
