Easy to use: You may not like the design of the Bissell crossover, but it is easy to carry around. A large handle on its top gives you a good grip while cleaning. Due to a thin central unit, it also takes less storage space.

Convenient control: Its intuitive and descriptive button gives you complete control and convenient cleaning.

Strong cleaning: The vacuum performs well while cleaning the floor and works quickly for large areas. Sometimes, the extreme left and right corners are unable to pick the dust. While working in small spaces, the suction is not optimum as well, which is not a big problem. You have to go over certain areas a couple of times.

Pivot head: Crosswave has a pivoting head that allows you to easily access and clean areas around and under furniture.

Dual-action brush ball: Its cleaning ball effectively picks up dirt, and debris and gives it a spotless floor.

Separate tanks: There are two tanks to keep the dust and clean water separate.

The Bissell crossover may not be on the top of this list, but considering its low price and two-in-one feature, it may be an appropriate cleaner for your house.

2. BISSELL Vac and Steam 2-in-1 Vacuum Cleaner


  • Dirt capacity. 0.4 liter
  • 4.4 kg
  • Available colors. Red and Grey

Everybody loves a multitasking machine, and that is why we give you another vacuum from Bissell, which is also a steam mop. Carpets or hard floors, the Bissell 2-in-1 cleaner can handle all kinds of surfaces. After trying this multi-purpose cleaning machine, we are very impressed with the results. Let us see what the features of the hoover that can be beneficial are.

Versatility: Either you can use the vac and mop at the same time or separately.

Top-notch mop: Its steam mop performs well and never leaves the floor wet. But, the water tank is small and cannot be detached. So, if you have to empty the tank, you have to upturn the whole unit into the sink.

Excellent vacuum: We tried to clean hard floors, and the outcome was satisfactory. However, the vacuum was not up to the mark while cleaning the carpets and the bristles were unable to pick up any pet hair.

Dry tank technology: It has a mechanism that keeps all the collected dust and dirt dry so that you can quickly empty the canister.

Easy to use: With its retractable handle, you can choose a comfortable length depending on your height. Collapse the handle for easy storage. Also, the vacuum also has an easy-to-fill water tank that makes it even more convenient to operate.

Steam control: There are buttons to control the steam that you can use depending on the surface. It also has overheating protection to save delicate surfaces.

We tried the cleaner on different surfaces, and it gave us positive results. So, if you are looking to replace your old vacuum with something that can vacuum and wash at the same time, this vac from Bissell is another excellent option.


  • One of the best mop

3. BISSELL Pet Hair Eraser, Cordless Handheld Hoover


  • Dirt capacity. 1.5 litres
  • 1.29 kg
  • Available colors. Black and citrus lime
  • Included accessories. motorized brush, upholstery tool and crevice tool

Specially designed for pet owners, the pet hair eraser from Bissell comes with several attachments to catch all kinds of dust, debris and pet hair. Let’s take a quick look at Bissell pet vacuum cleaner features.

Motorized brush roll: Bissell has tried to include all the advanced attachments with the pet hair eraser. It all starts with a brush roll with its motor. Due to the dedicated motor, it cleans beds and other furniture in a better way.

Dual-layered filtration system: The new vacuum variant from Bissell uses a fine mesh filter that stops all the junk, debris and pet hair to clog into the paper element filter. Both the filters do that job pretty well to keep the cleaning session trouble-free.

Attachments: You get three tools to clean all kinds of materials and surfaces. Apart from the motorized brush tool, you get the crevice and upholstery tool, which you can use to clean car seats or carpets.

Run time: Its battery backup is 15 minutes. To work for those fifteen minutes, it needs a charging time of five hours.

Washable filters: Both filters are washable, so you will be spending less to replace the filters. It also has a warranty of 1 year.

We advise selecting this handheld vacuum only if you are looking for a hoover for spot cleaning. This cleaner does not have any tool or extension for hard floors. Looking at its run time, we can say that the vacuum is ideal for quick clean-ups. We also think that it is not able to penetrate medium or thick pile carpet even with the motorised brush tool. However, it works great on the carpeted stair and all other upholstery furniture.

  • No attachments for hard floors
  • Limited runtime
