Bissell Has Good Reviews for Its Vacuum Cleaners

We checked 404 expert and owner reviews for Bissell vacuum cleaners and found that on average Bissell has good ratings. However we also found that Bissell has unexceptional ratings specifically for its vacuums.


Easy to Use

One customer who purchased the product thought it had a good experience. In January last year Tony Napier wrote “So far my experience has been good - it vacuums up the dirt very effectively” in his Bissell PowerForce review.

Good Filter

One person who purchased it said that it had a good filter. Crazyaboutmoo mentioned in their review of the Bissell PowerForce two years ago “Im sure its not far off! The problem is it blocks very easily around the internal filter which I think is what causes the breaks”.

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum is Dry, which is typical of many vacuum cleaners that came out more than two years ago.

We compared this vacuum cleaner to all the other Dry vacuums and we think the VAX Performance 12 C86-PB-Be which has better reviews is also worth considering.

One customer considered that the product was easy to damage or scratch. Daniel Pride mentioned two years ago “Now most of the stick or rather handle is broken”. One Bissell PowerForce reviewer reckoned that the Bissell PowerForce was well made. Two years ago Sudsandsoda mentioned in their review “Ultimately, I think it's too powerful for the physical build of the unit”.

3 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

Expert review site scored this vacuum 60 out of 100. This means that experts really don't rate this vacuum cleaner very highly.

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Most comparable spec vacuums that were released around the same time as the PowerForce do not have a brush tool. The Bissell PowerForce is no exception to this as it too does not have a brush tool.

Chart Edit

Not Cordless

The PowerForce is not cordless, although keep in mind that most of the other vacuums of a comparable type and age to the PowerForce are also not cordless.

If you would prefer a vacuum that is cordless then you might want to consider the Bosch GAS 10,8 V-LI which also has a higher rating.
