BISSELL are amongst the top manufacturers of vacuum cleaners, producing a range of upright, cordless and even steam cleaning models. But which are the best BISSELL vacuum cleaners? And which provide the greatest value for money? Keep reading to find out!

Before we get to our list of the top four BISSELL vacuums, it’s worth pointing out that the best model for you depends on your personal requirements. Are you looking for a new primary vacuum with strong suction and ability to deal with pet hair? Then the 48751 is probably the best choice. Or are you searching for a lightweight, easy-to-manoeuvre cordless? If so, the 13114 is an excellent option.

You also might be wondering: “are BISSELL vacuums any good?” The answer, of course, depends on the model. The company produces some excellent models, but each should be judged on its own merits – not just the brand. With that said, BISSELL, in general, are known to manufacture high-quality and reliable vacuums. We’ve written a number of BISSELL vacuum reviews, with more being added all the time.

With that out of the way, we’ve compiled a list of our top four BISSELL vacuum cleaners. The list includes one upright, two cordless and one vacuum/steam model. Each model on the list has been highly rated by buyers in terms of performance and value for money. So let’s get started!

The BISSELL 48751 Powerglide Lift-Off Pet is a vacuum cleaner designed to provide a healthy dose of suction power. It’s built with multi cyclonic technology, which prevents loss of suction as the canister fills with dust and dirt. It also comes with a multiple levels of filtration to prevent bacteria, dust and other allergens being released into the air.

One of the stand-out features of the 48751 is that it’s multi-functional. It can be used as a regular upright vacuum, or the removable pod can be used for cleaning difficult areas such as stairs. It also comes with a TurboBrush tool for removing pet hair from carpets – making this probably the best Bissell vacuum for pet hair.

When writing our Bissell reviews, the 48751 stands out as having powerful suction. In fact, it’s so powerful that it can sometimes require more effort than we would like to push along carpets. The pet tool is effective for removing hair when on full power, while the upright mode is great for cleaning large areas of floor at once. Additionally, the lift-off part of the vacuum is useful for areas such as stairs.

If you’re looking for a Bissell pet vacuum, the BISSELL PowerGlide could be an excellent option. It’s certainly one of the best BISSELL upright vacuum cleaners, and is great for pet hair and for getting up dirt or dust other vacuums would pass right over.

BISSELL Vac and Steam 2-in-1 Vacuum CleanerBISSELL 11327 Vac and Steam 2-in-1

The BISSELL 11327 Vac and Steam, as the name suggests, is a versatile model that can handle steam cleaning as well as regular vacuuming. It achieves this with a “dry tank” design, which helps to keep everything in the dust canister dry.

The steam feature only requires a 30 second heat up time, making it as close to “on demand” as you can get with a multi-functional appliance. Other features include a control for steam output, manoeuvrable design for cleaning under furniture and a retractable handle.

Considering the relatively low price, the 11327 provides impressive performance. It’s not the best steamer on the market, but it does a great job – especially as it’s also a vacuum cleaner. It’s quick and easy to use the steam function, as it only takes 30 seconds to warm up.

In terms of cleaning performance, the 11327 goes a good job on hard floors. It makes quick work of dirt and dust, although we wish it came with some smaller tools for awkward areas. It also won’t leave noticeable streaks when in steam cleaning mode.

If you need a vacuum and steam combination without spending a huge amount of money, the BISSELL 11327 Vac and Steam is an option to consider. It provides excellent value for money, and using the steam function is convenient – especially if your home has lots of hard floors.

Overview:

  • Price Range: £
  • Power: 1500W
  • Weight: 4.4kg
  • Dust Capacity: 3.8 litres
  • Filter Type: Standard

The BISSELL 13114 MultiReach 2-in-1 is a convenient, lightweight cordless vacuum that’s received excellent reviews from buyers. It features a 40 minute run time off a single charge, which is considerably more than many other cordless vacuums, and an extension wand for reaching high places.

Other features include a removable tool for changing between upright and handheld modes, a “boosted” suction mode (at the cost of decreased battery life) and edge bristles for a more thorough clean. You can also switch the brush on or off depending on the cleaning task.

In terms of cleaning performance, the 13114 is versatile and great for cleaning almost anywhere in the home. The accessories are also useful and it’s easy to empty the vacuum.

The 13114 MultiReach cordless vacuum is an excellent model with a range of useful features. It’s probably the best cordless BISSELL vacuum cleaner on the market at the moment, although if your budget doesn’t stretch to it the cheaper 13127 is also a good option (see below).

Overview:

  • Price Range: £££
  • Power: 115W
  • Weight: 5kg
  • Dust Capacity: 1 litre
  • Filter Type: Standard

BISSELL 13127 MultiReachBISSELL 13127 MultiReach 2-in-1

The BISSELL 13127 MultiReach is the less expensive cousin of the 13114 listed above, but still comes with many of the same features and accessories. The vacuum is a cordless model with a folding handle, 30 minute run time and edge bristles. It also has 180 degree steering for more manoeuvrable cleaning.

Other features include an 18V Lithium-Ion battery, for powerful suction, and a hand vacuum for cleaning difficult areas. The BISSELL 13127 is built with cyclonic technology, along with “Edgereach” cleaning for getting rid of dust and dirt along the base of walls.

While the 13127 isn’t the best vacuum in the world, it does a good job on most tasks. It’s almost powerful enough to be considered a “main” vacuum and not just for small jobs, and it’s also highly manoeuvrable. This makes it easy to get into awkward areas. Additionally, the relatively long run-time and cordless design mean it’s a convenient tool to have in the home.

If you’re looking for a cordless BISSELL vacuum, but don’t want to spend the money to get the 13114, then the BISSELL 13127 is an excellent alternative. It’s powerful for a cordless, and comes with a number of useful features.
