    Highest Rated Consumer Review by the Community

  • Lean, Mean, Green Turbo Machine

    Mar 28, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight, portable, convenient.
    Cons: Only for small areas and furniture...but this is why I bought it.

    Summary: Lately, I have been reading a few epinions on various deep cleaning machines. Mostly, these were larger machines to clean entire rooms. For me, I will leave total carpet cleaning to the professionals. However, I thought I would like something small and ... read more

  • Pass on this cleaner

    Dec 9, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: small, easy to carry around
    Cons: doesn't work worth beans

    Summary: I purchased this product 6 months ago when I got a puppy. I read reviews and researched this before I bought it. This cleaner is terrible. I use 1 bucket of water & cleaner and get back approx. 1/4 of a tank. Therefore my carpet stays soaked. I am not ... read more

  • Gonna Get Ya Sucka!

    Nov 20, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: compact and powerful for it's size
    Cons: hose drips when done

    Summary: This little machine is pretty handy. It's essentially a wet vacuum, with very limited capacity. It may also be used for scrubbing a spot, but with limited results. Bissell lists this as the Little Green Multi Purpose. It will either have a ... read more

  • A Miracle for Pet Stains!

    Jun 30, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good for quick pick ups, removes even difficult stains.
    Cons: Turbobrush shield broke off, occasionally sprays.

    Summary: We purchased this model when we were trying to housebreak our Schipperke puppy, and it's gotten LOTS of use! We also have a larger Bissell, but this model outperforms for small, serious stains. The small size makes it easy to carry and attack stains in ... read more

  • Works OK But Don't Expect Miracles

    Feb 24, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Works quite well on small stains
    Cons: Not so easy to use as expected

    Summary: I bought the Bissell LItle Green Turbobrush Cleaner because I got a puppy and needed something fast. It seemed portable enough and I figured it would work better than just the small hand held machines you can find on the market. It does clean up pet ... read more

  • Unimpressive

    Nov 12, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Attractive Package
    Cons: Mediocre Performance

    Summary: I tried (and returned) the unit with "ProHeat." Many of the other reviews here are much on target. What you are basically buying is a sprayer and a not very powerful wet-vac in one package. A few observations: 1. The TurboBrush is ... read more

  • A real hassle

    May 15, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: does clean the carpet
    Cons: loud, messy, hard to remove tanks, hard work!

    Summary: I purchased the Bissell Little Green TurboBrush Portable Small Area Deep Cleaner in an effort to keep up with my very spitty daughter. I'd feed her, she'd spit all over the carpet. I thought I was getting everything with just water, but one day ... read more

  • Looking to save your carpeting???

    May 11, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight, built-in heater, works great
    Cons: none

    Summary: I just moved into a new house with WHITE carpeting. Why would the old homeowners use WHITE carpeting on the stairs, hallway, living room and DINNING ROOM??? Yes, it looks beautiful but how long can this last. The carpet is pretty new so getting rid of ... read more

  • Going downhill fast

    Mar 8, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: small, easy to use, light weight, built in heater
    Cons: can't clean the entire floor, hard to clean the unit, doesn't clean tough spots.

    Summary: Update December 2002 My opinion has changed. I have owned the carpet cleaner for over a year and have grown to hate it. It seemed to work great at first, but as time has gone by I am not as impressed. It doesn't clean tough spots, and the most ... read more

  • I wish it was better...

    Nov 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: portability, brush attachment
    Cons: leaking water tank, doesn't vacuum up enough dirty water

    Summary: With 3 children and a dog, I needed a portable cleaner that would pick up spills fast so I purchased the Bissel Little Green Steam Machine with turbo brush. I also purchased it to clean the upholstery and carpet in the cars and planned on using this ... read more

  • Bissell Botched It

    Nov 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Small, compact
    Cons: Didn't perform well

    Summary: A year ago my husband and I moved into a new home. We had been apartment dwellers for a long time and had a 1 year old Chihuahua. We had trained her to papers in the apartment and knew it was going to take some time for her to get used to going ... read more

  • Perfect cleaner for spots and cars

    Sep 21, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, small-compact, powerful
    Cons: Can't clean the whole floor with it.

    Summary: Living in the midwest pretty much requires having your own carpet cleaner. Be it the snow or the rain you are going to track mud or snow in sooner or later. I purchased the Bissel about a year ago and use it whenever I can. It is just way too ... read more

  • You Get What You Pay For

    Jul 10, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive
    Cons: Cheap construction...lots of plastic

    Summary: We purchased this machine to use on our upholstered furniture. We have hard wood floors throughout the house, so we didn't need one of the big machines. This machine works o.k. for small stuff, but I wouldn't want to use it on anything very big. The ... read more

  • Suprisingly effective

    Jun 28, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Light, effective
    Cons: Chinsey

    Summary: I had some ground in dirt in high traffic areas on a new area rug in my baby's room. I wanted to use a carpet cleaner and vacuum it, but my wife was reluctant to use a harsh chemical on the rug because of the bambino. So, I bought this machine on sale ... read more

  • Don't waste your money here, folks

    Feb 22, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleans up OK, if the spill is gotten to IMMEDIATELY
    Cons: Turbo brush not worth the extra money.

    Summary: Just before the holidays, I took a good look at my carpets. After the horror subsided, I decided I must get a shampooer. We had one about 3 or 4 years ago, but unfortunately we loaned it out and it came back broke. I remembered that I got it ... read more

  • Little Green cleans in a BIG way....

    Jan 29, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easily cleans up wet or dry spills and stains.
    Cons: This is a spot cleaner...not intended for whole rooms.

    Summary: This is the second Bissell Little Green Clean Machine that I have owned. I first purchased the Bissell when they were brand new on the market, and loved the portability and ease of use. However, there were a few things I didn't like. The cleaning ... read more
