Rated 5 out of 5 by karsonclaire Great for pets!
I have two male puppies who had a hard time understanding house-training and being boys, occasionally mark their territories in my home. I previously had a Hoover upright steam cleaner but it started leaking, so I got the SpotBot, which I thought would be easier to carry up and down the stairs. With the right cleaner, this little thing is awesome! it's so convenient and adorable. It's easy to store and carry around. You can get to all the hard to reach places with the hose and the scrub brush is great for stubborn stains you don't want to spend 6 minutes scrubbing yourself. I used it to clean my car upholstery and it worked great for that, too! Will definitely always have one of these now!

Tried my new Spot Bot for the first time on a pretty well hidden ralph spot that had not been noticed for quite a while. GONE! Because it was well set, I used the deep clean cycle with the booster. I am amazed, and it was so easy.

I have a small dog and got this for clean ups, It started leaking after 5 months, They told me to replace the Hose (That was expensive and a real night mare and a half) stopped leaking for 8 months now here we go again leaking, also is very difficult to clean the hose out. think I will just get rid of this spot bot

Rated 5 out of 5 by MsKeyofC Gotta Love It!
What's not to love? SpotBot Pet saves SO much time and energy, keeping up with the messes left by my sweet senior kitty. Set-up is easy, clean-up's a breeze, and carpet stains are banished in a hurry! In addition, it's lightweight, easy to carry up and down stairs, and small enough to store away neatly. I highly recommend SpotBot--an absolute MUST for pet owners!

Rated 1 out of 5 by TVrana Broken Casing/Carry Handle
After a handful of times of using this, the entire upper casing broke off now exposing all of the electronics and internal components. This seems to be the same problem that "suz4234" described below. The four plastic posts used to secure the top half with screws can be seen where they broke. This is not a wear and tear issue, rather an issue of cheap plastic and a design that should not have been used. This unit is out of warranty so there's nothing left to do with it. It's junk. We paid top dollar for bottom quality equipment. I really thought Bissell made better products that this. If this is a case of an isolated bad design issue by Bissell, then they should be offering full refunds or replacements with upgraded or retrofitted models for this unit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by atarione works pretty good.. not durable
we have owned this cleaner for about 2~years
for the first year (till warranty expired...go figure?) i would have easily given it 4 or 5 stars.
however at about 14~ish months the fact bissell uses about the cheapest plastic know to man on these things became glaringly obvious. Since this time the attachment has cracked the end of the hose cracked by trigger. and now the unit leaked all over the rug when i went to pick it up and all four screws holding the top half of the cover on..(weak design to start with) cracked and broke off.
if you buy this I would figure on buying another pretty much right after the warranty runs out / or get yourself a bulk pack of super glue and duct tape in order to piece this thing back together as it steadily falls apart on you.
btw.. unit was stored inside out of direct sunlight in climate controlled environment... the plastic is just thin, brittle and cheap...imho.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stephaniej2888 So far it works great!
I cant comment on the longevity of this item as i just got it, but as far as cleaning it works great! I have 4 dogs, 2 cats, a 2 year old and a boyfriend so my house gets spots that just *magically* appear quite often! I used it on one fresh stain and one set it stain that my big carpet cleaner hasnt been able to get out and you cant even tell anything was ever there!
One tip if you are using the spot cleaner is to go over it with the hose once after the cycle is complete because there is some excess cleaning solution that the spot cleaner doesnt get all the way up (that would be my only complaint about this machine).
Easy to store
Easy to carry
Easy to use
Easy to clean

Rated 5 out of 5 by BobG Not for large areas, but great for spots.
With a new puppy, we are testing this cleaner's capabilities. Fill it, set it down, and start it. The biggest problem were the clean circles on the dirty carpet. But I just got the hose out and cleaned the rest of the area.

Rated 1 out of 5 by houndmom Would Not Recommend
I bought this product because I have 4 dogs and that that it would be a quick way to clean up accidents. It worked fine in the beginning. A little after a year of sporadic use it started leaking when not in use. Also, when I used the wand, the full tank of soapy water would empty out onto my rug. No clogs in the hose but I could no longer use the wand.

User friendly, works great. The only thing I don't like is having to buy the fluid for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bee A Good Dog Dog Trainer and Foster Mom
As a dog trainer and Puppy Foster Mom this little machine cannot be beat.
Puppies have accidents and this does a wonderful job of getting the spots out.
I also have kitties and one is almost 17 and vomits from time to time and after cleaning up the 'pieces' I put this little machine on the spot and wala! All gone :)
And I must add that there was a home birth (human) in my home recently and it got the little bit of blood stains that escaped the birthing area out even after two days!
I certainly beats having to drag out the rug doctor which causes my OCD to clean the whole room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Candycards This product is so easy to use
Purchased a new puppy and this product worked great when trying to house break her. It also works great on spots that had been on the carpet. So easy to use just start and walk away. Very light weight, easy to move around.

I told my daughter all I wanted for Christmas was a portable spot cleaner. She is big on reviews. So she did her homework and ordered the SpotBot for me as it truly has the best reviews out there. It is amazing. We have pets and it takes the mess right out of the carpet. I am a little concerned as it doesn't suction very well and I will be calling Bissell to trouble shoot. Other than that it is a very good product. I have the Bissell Pet carpet shampooer that is the best I have ever used. Love my Bissell products they keep us clean

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kim M. works great!
We bought a new house that has very light color carpet. We have a young son, livestock, and 2 dogs that come indoors. Lots of messes, so far this has taken every stain up, but I have kept up with cleaning them right away so I'm not sure how it will do with set in stains. The only down side is that the machine dribbles water when not in use, so I set it on a plastic tray to catch the mess.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jeanne65 Saves me lots of time and no more smelly carpet.
This spot bot pet has been a real blessing after my pet has had an "accident" on the carpet. Sure beats getting on your hands and knees blotting. I just set it into place and let it do it's job. The only thing I wish that it would take up more of the water as it takes too long to dry. I'm giving it 4 stars for that reason.

Rated 4 out of 5 by scootermouse Good Product
Having fostered many dogs and puppies over the year, I find the Spotbot to be great for cleaning up messes and will continue to use it. I don't, however, like the fact that it leaves so much water in the carpet. A friend had an older model and it would leave the carpet nice and dry when it was done. I wish they could figure out an easier way to empty the dirty water. When you tip it to empty the water from the top it starts dripping out the bottom. There's also no real good way to clean out the dirty water container. I think Bissel needs to get their engineers working on these few things in order to create a FANTASTIC machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dolphin Works great
I have used the SpotBot for cleaning a love seat that had turned into the dog bed. I vacuumed it forever, then used the handheld device and it worked beautifully. I thought the love seat was history, but it looks great. It is now a human love seat and when we are not home I cover it with a sheet. I have yet to try it on carpet, but with three dogs I am sure it won't be too long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WCG Performance good but durability off
I absolutely love this product, but the first one I got broke down the first day I used it and the replacement broke down the second day. When it is working it is very effective at getting spots out.
It doesn't take too long to work, and I like that it is automatic after you push the buttons.

After my Hoover steam vac broke and I could not find replacement parts for it I was looking to buy another one when I came across the Spotbot at Walmart.
I needed something immediately because my new puppy that wasn't house broken yet made a runny deposit on my white carpets. Needless to say I thought that section of my carpet was ruined forever.
So I head home with the new Spotbot and the necessary cleaning solutions to clean deep down pet mess. I could not believe how well this machine performed and removed every bit of that stain off the carpets.
The best part was that I didn't have to spend and hour on my hands and knees with a scrub brush and steam vac hose going over the spot until it was cleaned. Sure it took 6 cycles of the set-in stain mode to remove the spot, but the spot is totally gone, no one can tell where it was. I was able to sit at my desk and do some work on my computer while this machine did its job.
I was so sold on Bissell after that, never had one of their products before, that I ended up purchasing their Big Green Machine to replace my broken Hoover and that machine far exceeded any carpet cleaning machine I have used in the past, including professional cleaning services like Stanley Steamer.

We came home one day to our dog having had diarrhea on our cream-colored carpet. We went out and bought the SpotBot Pet and it worked wonders! It is great that I have the option to either set it to do the work, or use the hose and brush myself. I would recommend it to anyone!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Chris5151 Didn't live up to it's claims. At least, not for me.
My son bought the SpotBot for me so I wouldn't have to get the "big" carpet cleaner out.
Unfortunately, the SpotBot left my spots bigger and darker than they originally were. It evidently didn't pull much water out, because we set barstools over the wet places and used fans for several hours, thinking that when it was dry the carpet would return to its normal shade of beige, but it didn't.
Needless to say, I was disappointed with my "machine". Maybe I just got a bad one, and I wouldn't be able to recommend this to anyone. My carpet actually looks worse than it did before I cleaned them. :-[

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adleigh8276 Great at getting tough stains out and convenient
I love the spotbot! I was hesitant at first to buy this product based on some reviews but this has been a lifesaver for my carpet. My puppy had diarrhea on my carpet and I had used many different products to get the stains out but it wasn't working, this machine took them out the very first try. I also like how you just press the button and let it do it's thing while you clean somewhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Parachic2010 One of my favorite appliances
This little thing packs some serious stain removal power. The simplicity of putting it over the spot, pushing a button and letting it work by itself is well worth the price! It even beeps to let you know when it is finished with the cycle. The included hand tool also works amazingly on furniture, I was embarrased at what I was able to get out of my husband's recliner, although I definitely feel better about it now!. This is definitely a good investment, it can also be used in your vehicle as well.

I purchased the SpotBot® Pet Deep Cleaner 33N8-A after my fastidious daughter recommended it. She's been using hers for years with great success in cleaning up pet stains and tracked-in footsteps from her children and husband. I add the Oxy-clean to the cleaners Bissell includes with the machine and, so far, the dog and people stains have disappeared like magic. Great bargain for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Linda S Somewhat disappointed...
Had the little green machine for years. Thought this would be easier and do better job. Cleans carpet but uses too much liquid and then leaves carpet very wet. Have used bother settings and had same result. Usually have to go over with hose just to get liquid out. Not what I expected.
