Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Lift Off Bagless Upright Vacuum Review

Manufactured by Bissell, this pet hair eraser is perfect for the fur-parents of those that shed like crazy. With a sleek and modern design that’s infused with traditional properties, you’ll be able to feel good while you’re cleaning the house, not have to worry about pet hair afterward. Let’s take a look at some of the features.

The Breakdown of the Features

There Bissell has quite a few attractive features, including the 2-in-1 vacuum lift-off technology, which allows the user to transition from a traditional upright vacuum to an easy-to-maneuver, detachable canister that’s super portable. Beyond this, there’s a brush roll that’s tangle-free, and ensures the user doesn’t have to worry about hair wrapping around! We’ve all been there, right? Whether we had a girlfriend or sister that shed more than your dog, or you’re someone like me and lose hair all the time.

If you’re curious about how the emptying of this vacuum works, you’ll want to check out the hands-free emptying mechanism, which makes sure you won’t have to touch anything yucky. Furthermore, take advantage of the cyclonic pet hair spooling system, and extended reach that ensures convenience and portability as you clean your house. There’s even a telescoping wand for extra pet tools for specializing in pet hair removal.

Thankfully, there is a smart seal feature within this vacuum that ensures the allergens, dander, and hair won’t be everywhere, and that’s fantastic for someone who has allergies. Beyond this, you’ll be able to reap the benefits of the Febreze filter that encourages odor eliminating properties.

There is a swivel feature with this unit, along with an easy to use canister removal feature, to ensure optimal portability. If you’ve had trouble in the past with over vacuums and their swivel, you’ll most definitely want to check out this Bissell’s pet hair eraser “lift off” vacuum. With fantastic suction, lights, a decent cord, and great tools and convenient features, this is a great addition to add to any home that has a nice pet population.

The First Impression of the Product

As someone who is severely allergic to dogs, and loving dogs, it’s heartbreaking that sometimes I can’t be near them. Of course, I still try to give as much love as I can. When using this vacuum, I also get to use the smart seal allergen system that makes sure I won’t breathe it in constantly as I’m using the vacuum. Beyond this, there’s a “Febreze” aspect with a filter that traps dust and makes the air smell good, while removing odors!

You can clean as much as you want, but that odor will always be there until you remove it. If your pets are continuously having accidents in the house – especially those adorable puppies, it’s essential that you invest in a tool that has multiple features as such to remove said allergens and odors. I suggest investing in an enzyme removing spray, too, to ensure that the animal isn’t going to smell their enzymes and re-mark their territory (aka peeing in the same spot).

One of my dogs has extremely long hair, and it’s a lighter color, so there are usually pieces of his hair everywhere. As someone who always loves wearing the shade black, (black leggings to be exact), this spells out disaster. Thanks to the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser, along with the detachable components, I can wear leggings without so much hair gathering around them. I love coming home, jumping on the couch and relaxing while watching some Arrested Development. I don’t have to worry about what my leggings look like afterward now that I’ve invested in this.

If you want to get really nifty with the included tools, you’ll be happy to know there’s a turbo eraser, which cleans furniture fabric with ease, and even rugs! How many times has your cat rubbed itself all over your rug, leaving bunches of hair or dander? While it would be more convenient if this were stored in the actual vacuum, it still works really well for what it’s worth.

Sometimes you have to play a bit with the telescopic wand (depending on the batch, I assume), to get it just right, but I assume this isn’t an issue everyone has. There is also a light up crevice tool to help you get into those nooks and crannies with ease. While this is typically wider than your average crevice tool, it actually works great –, especially for edges!

At the end of the day, my household is pretty happy with this product. If you’re looking to splurge on a product that’s worthwhile, I would suggest this Bissell, especially if you’re having trouble with your pet’s shedding.


  • Had smart seal for allergens
  • Odor eliminating properties

  • Hose and cord may be shorter than you’re used to

  • Telescopic, extendable wand is a hit or miss, as well because of the locking features being frustrating

The Final Verdict

Overall, I would highly recommend this product. As someone who can’t push around a ton of weight because of my height (or lack thereof), it’s not too heavy for me to maneuver, and it’s not too difficult at all. I’ll admit, I was skeptical because of the price, but I’m glad I took the plunge instead of purchasing crappy vacuums over and over again. There’s no way you can resist the “lift-off” technology that allows it to become a detachable canister, making it more convenient than ever. Eliminate allergens, pet dander, hair, and odor with ease as you take full control with the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Vacuum.
