Rated 1 out of 5 by Chris73 Was great while it lasted
Stopped steaming after 7 months, did all the trouble shooting, only used distilled water and was told because I didn't buy their cleaner they would not cover the warranty. No where in the manual does it state to use only Bissell cleaner, it recommends using distilled water which is what I did! Worked great while it lasted. Will never purchase a Bissell product again!

Mama sez she likes it! We have tile floors in 4 rooms and it cleans better than Swiffer wet. Can't beat that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snelly VERY PLEASED
I have had other brands of steam mops in past years but I find the Bissell to have a stronger steam action, larger head to clean a wider area faster and light weight. Though the water container seems small in size compared to the others I have owned, the steam set on high lasted throughout my entire house on tile floors. I do like the idea of the scented discs as well that leaves a refreshing fragrance. Now I just hope it lasts longer than my others have, generally less than a year.

We have been using this product on our wood floors and tile. It is easy to use and works wonderfully. I like that it is lightweight, and the cord is a decent length for our long hallway! I would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Puppy mom Steam machine!!!
Love this little steam machine - makes quick work out of messy clean ups!!! We have enamel painted wood floors in the kitchen, dining, and family room and this mop does an excellent job at cleaning up muddy paw prints and toddler spills!!! My one and only complaint is the mop head cover tends to pull away and wrinkle under the front of the mop as you push and pull the mop ):

I own several Bissell products and this one continues to impress me. It cleans very well and so light & easy to use. Love the way it swivels into every corner and under kitchen cabinets. A++++

Rated 5 out of 5 by TeaherJen Just what I needed!
I already like Bissell, so when I wanted to get a steam mop, it was my go to place. I checked prices at the regular locations for similar mops, but Bissell was the best with pricing and what I was looking for. After using the steam mop, I'm an even bigger fan! It's easy to use and my house feels even cleaner to me. I used it on the ceramic tile (medium setting) and on my hardwood floor (light setting) and was impressed by the results. Thank you, Bissell!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by TobysMum Worked wonderful....until it didn't.
This steam mop worked amazing on my cherry wood floors, and tile. It takes less than half the time, for a better clean, than a mop and bucket! I love the three different steam settings. I had previously owned a shark, and it did NOT emitt enough steam, and I could not adjust it to produce more. This Bissell produces ample steam, yet my floor still dries quickly.
The downside? It quit working, after 7 months. I
cleaned/descaled my steam mop, thinking that may be the problem, but it was not. The problem was electrical. My Sister's identical steam mop died after 8 months....also an electrical issue. Disappointed that this great mop had such a short life! Wish I had kept the receipt :(

I never new I could be in love with a steam mop!
This makes cleaning floors a whole new experience, it was super quick and easy, and very effective. I will be telling all my friends and family about this excellent product, it's a must-have for floors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by leaht Really works!
I purchased this to replace my older Bissell Steam Mop when it finally died after 6 years. Glad I did. This one works even better than the older version. It gets the grout clean of dirt and grime that my cats and dogs leave behind. The amount of steam is really nice, now that you can control it. The scent pads do leave a nice odor behind. I do wish the water canister was larger, like the old one. I did about half of my house (all tile) and had to replace the canister once...no biggie, but still kind of a pain. The old model had a much larger canister. It's also a lot lighter than the previous version. Much easier to replace the mop cover on this one too!
I'm very excited about this new mop. Thanks for another great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Huntly Best around
I purchased this and donated it to a local no-kill animal shelter for their Kitten Kabin. Everyone at the shelter has used it and they are in awe at how well it really cleans. The three steam settings are great and the mop head is perfect. The only thing I would change is adding an on/off switch to the mop. This steam mop is the best thing going for cleaning and sanitizing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by FLALADY Where's the steam????
First 10 minutes started out great, then just wet floors, very wet floors with dirt puddle. Lots of gurgling but no steam. What is going on? Tried it again later with new pad, first 10 minutes great then the same thing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JP Performs Exactly As Advertised
I have Pergo.com style floors and I was thinking about getting a Swiffer Wet Jet. Swiffer customer service didn't really help me out, so I found Bissell. Thankfully, I'm happy with my Steam Mop. I think I'm using it correctly and I would recommend this to everyone else. It's easy to set up and very easy to use.
There are two things I would wish it would do. One, I wish the Steam function could be combined with a light bleach and or light detergent to just have that additional cleaning power. Two, I wish the water reservoir would be bigger. I find myself going through the demineralized water very quick on the high setting. But, that's about it as of now.
I just bought this mop and have used it once. I will edit this review as time goes by if my review changed.
Thanks BIssell :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bartman Outstanding !
I researched this product type for a while and hands down I made the right choice. The water tank lasted a long time and the mop covers are very durable. Don't let them dry out...put in washer when you're done and DON'T dry in dryer. Absolutely works great on my hardwood and tile floors. Great product! Thanks Bissell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cleanincanada CLEAN Floors Finally!
At first I was a bit disapointed... this doesn't really replace a mop. If your floors are really DIRTY you'll need to clean them - otherwise the steam mop will pick up the dirt on the pad and spread it around. But if they are respectable they just need a vacuum over then the steam mop really does do an amazing job! Works great to keep up with our puppy who leaves paw prints across the floor - very convenient.
I noticed streaks as well like the other reviewers - but I'm discovering that it was just that my floors had cleaner left behind on them - after a few goes my floors are now VERY clean and streak free. Wish it came with more pads - I find I am rinsing them out a lot.
One thing I have been scratchy my head over though.... I read that I can use it to freshen my carpet - the manual says the same. But where is the carpet glider? Was it suppose to be included - or is this an extra purchase? I cannot find an answer to this anywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MopperShopper Purged the other steammop--this one rocks!
The PowerFresh Steam Mop is the best thing to happen to me in this kitchen. The steam is far more effective than my previous one--so much that "the clean look" lasts much longer, because it's a deeper clean, even significantly more between the tiles. The mop pads are much more absorbent than the others, too, enough that it soaks up the soiled material and liquid (kitchen and bathrooms) and prevents a leftover sticky film. I like that the (distilled) water lasts a while in the tank. Another good feature is that the edges of the mop pad come up over the edge of the machine head so that it can be used to scrub around the very bottom base of a toilet and against the foot area of the fridge and oven. It's plenty light enough for my kids to use and is very easy on my back--no problem. Having the adjustable steam setting is important for preventing damage to the other types of flooring in our house. I was pleased enough with the steam mop that my mother-in-law plans to borrow it, so I was glad I purchased extra pads. The cleaning job is faster than before, without all the tough scrubbing, and I know that it's a deeper, truer clean. All of the features make this a bargain performer that will actually last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JSH Works like magic.
Many times, I've mopped the floor tiles by my front door, with tiles heading left to the master bedroom and to the right toward the dining room. I came to realize that I was never really cleaning the tiles or grout. I was just making them temporarily shiny on top of a layer of dirt that got down into the tiles' and grout's pores, nooks, and crannies (the tiles are not a flat surface). The PowerFresh Steam Mop lives up to its name. It was steaming as much as I was sweating, but the difference after just one mopping is noticeable (and a bit embarrassing, due to how dirty my floor actually was). Another round with the mop brought up even more dirt and grime, and I need to mop once more to remove the shadows that linger on some tiles. This is not to say the steam mop doesn't do a good job -- it does. But after a decade of never truly cleaning (besides tidying or making shiny) the tiles and grout, I had my work cut out for me.
Word to the wise: Don't add any formula or detergent to the mop's fluid holder. Just water, preferably filtered to prevent mineral build-up. I've used both of the scented demineralized waters Bissell sells for the mop. Both smelled good in the bottle. The orange scent didn't linger. The eucalyptus did, but the scent was faint and I don't think anyone visiting would notice. But they are still a good source of water for the mop if you have tap water that's hard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clean machine obessive compulsive cleaner's dream mop
This steam mop is a dream come true. I really, really love a clean house, as the old saying goes, a place for everything and everything in its place! I had another brand of steam mop that gave up on me, it was one of those trigger mops. I did some research and found the Bissell Power Fresh Steam Mop. It soon became my new best friend. We will be BFF. The ability to choose the amount of steam you need is a real winner, Not having to constantly squeeze the trigger is certainly a plus. The brush attachment to remove stubborn spots only adds icing to the cake. The water container is easy to remove and fill. The pads are big enough to speed up the job and some genius put scrubby wavelike things on one of the pads to make it simple to clean up a dirtiest floor. The water heats up very fast and the job is completed in no time.
The long cord lets you do a large room without having to stop and move the plug. I am extremely happy with my decision.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JimK Great Product so far
Great steam mop so far. Works really well, especially along baseboards because the pad covers the crevice and lower part of the baseboards as well.
Easy to operate.
I have had two Shark steam mops before that were a lot harder to push around and both of them didn't last very long. Loving the Bissell, let's hope this one lasts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tina76 Great Steam Mop!!!
When I bought this, I was a little skeptical about it, but it far exceeded my expectations! It is very fast and very easy to use. The floors shine after using, and if you use the "smelly" stuff your house smells great! I really like using the fragrance discs. And it can also convert to a carpet cleaner too, so that's a plus in my eyes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Grandma of 5 This product doesn't work well with arthritis
The designers at Bissell Corp. must not have arthritis and have never had to remove the water container with arthritic fingers. It's very painful;
it has also removed the shine on my vinyl floor in areas, if you let it sit in one spot too long.
therefore, I have only used my PowerFresh about 4 times since I received it as a Christmas gift from my grandchildren last year. I use a sponge mop.
It would have been nice to have a handle on it, so it could be easily pulled straight up. Of course if it were made of plastic, the handle would eventually break off, I'm sure.
I have a Bissell Featherweight sweeper, and I love it.

I rated this steam mop a 5 star because it out works the steam mop I had. It worked great I thought until I used the Bissell machine. I like the 3 kinds of steam you can choose, unlike the other that had only 1 setting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rob 10 months then trash.
Worked great then it just stopped after 10 months. Really sad I bought one over 3 years ago not a Bissell but one that swims in the ocean gave it to my mother and she is still using it.
This is ridiculous.

Over the years, I've tried every kind of mop and floor cleaning product that has come along. Hated most...tolerated others. It was such a messy, unsatisfactory chore that I didn't mop for weeks. I would just spot clean. I've only had my steam mop for a few weeks, but now mopping is actually fun. It's so easy and the results are so satisfying. Plus, I don't need those special cleaning solutions just a little vinegar if I want to add some extra punch. Thanks for a great product!
