The Bissell OptiClean vacuum is a bagless canister model with cyclonic technology. The exterior of this model is pretty nice looking, but in this review of the Bissell OptiClean vacuum cleaner, I’ll dig a little deeper to see if it’s actually worth the $100 price tag. Here’s a rundown of features you’ll find on this unit: telescoping wand, crevice tool, dusting brush, upholstery tool, HEPA filter, an easy empty dirt container, variable suction control, retractable power cord, washable pre-motor filter, and this vacuum only weighs 16 lbs. The number of on-board attachments is pretty impressive for a mid range model.
OK, onto the negative side of the Bissell OptiClean vacuum. First off, it doesn’t do that great of a job on thicker carpets. However, if you have mostly bare floors you should be fine. Another thing I don’t like is that the hose is pretty short, which can make it tough to reach certain areas of the house. Also, I can tell the build quality isn’t that great on this model. I suppose it’s to be expected from a cheaper unit, but it’s still disappointing. I also wish it had a rotating brush in the head, which would help clean carpets a lot better. Overall, I think the Bissell OptiClean vacuum cleaner is fine. I think the main group of people who would consider it, should have mostly bare floors. Overall, I’m giving this model a 3.5 / 5 star rating.
