Bissell 28B7E

The Bissell 28B7E is a small vacuum cleaner, but as it’s an upright machine, it’s much easier for tall people to use than the really tiny cylinder or sledge models. Being small, the 28B7E is probably not the best option for people with very large homes to clean, but if you’re looking for something to clean a flat or a two-up-two-down then this is probably just the ticket — although considering its size it is surprisingly heavy.

With a dust capacity of two litres, which isn’t bad considering its size, the Bissell will have you nipping out to the bin to empty it out every five minutes. Thankfully though you won’t have to spend much time messing around emptying it as the 28B7E is a bagless model that proves impressively easy to empty.

Thanks to its bagless nature, you also don’t have to mess around with changing bags or worry about getting dust all over yourself — you just take the Bissell 28B7E to the bin and tip the dust and dirt straight in. Very quick, very easy, very hygienic, perfect for people with dust allergies or asthma as you don’t have to worry about breathing any of the muck back in.

The HEPA filter also helps with this. HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air, and it basically stops the tiny particles of dust, pollen and pet hair from escaping the cleaner once they’re in. If they can’t escape they can’t get into your body and make you feel bad, so if your allergies are a consideration then you really should check the Bissell 28B7E out.

With a special pet hair brush, the Bissell 28B7E is excellent for those people with animals in the house as it really does get up pet hair well whilst remaining good on hard surfaces like wooden floors. You can adjust the height and the cable is extra long so you don’t have to keep unpluging it to clean somewhere else.
