Bissell Zing Bagless Canister Vacuum Review

Bissell floor sweepers (established more than 100 years ago in Grand Rapids, Michigan) have always been incredibly popular options on the market today when it comes to cleaning and maintaining your home or office – and this Bissell canister vacuum definitely will not disappoint.

Small enough to easily store in a utility closet or the corner of a cupboard, but powerful enough to take care of just about any medium-size mess you have on your floors, the Bissell Zing Bagless canister vacuum is a high quality piece of equipment that you’ll be able to use for years and years to come.

While not exactly the most advanced piece of equipment in the canister vacuum world, and certainly not the best looking of all the different canister vacuums out there, this Bissell model has a serious focus on function over form – which isn’t exactly a bad thing.

Easily one of the best performers in this vacuum segment, you’ll appreciate how much of the “heavy lifting” this canister vacuum does for you when it comes time to clean and maintain your floors.

Positive Features

The first time that you power on your Bissell Zing Bagless canister vacuum you are going to notice – immediately – just how powerful the cyclonic vacuum action inside this canister vacuum really is.

This amazing little machine is going to start to pull up dirt and debris even just a few inches away from your floor, so make sure that you don’t have the hose anywhere near your hands (or anywhere else on your body, for that matter) unless you want a welt!

Secondly, you’ll be able to use this canister vacuum cleaner on just about any of the floor surfaces you have in your home or office. Able to flip from carpets to rugs to hardwood floor to tile (and then back again) without ever missing a beat, this is an incredibly versatile vacuum that definitely gets the job done.

Finally, thanks to the third stage filtration unit that is built right into this canister vacuum, you’ll be able to use some pretty high impact filters (including HEPA filters – sold separately) so that you trap all of the fine dirt and debris in your home – really giving yourself an incredibly deep clean in the process.

Combine all of that with a very easy to empty and maintain form factor, and you’re looking at a real winner here.

Negative Features

Most of the people that own one of these canister vacuums are glowingly positive in their reviews, but there are a handful of drawbacks that people will want to be aware of.

For one, this vacuum is in no way, shape, or form designed to be your main vacuum. It’s built and engineered specifically for smaller jobs, smaller messes, and “lightweight to medium duty” – so don’t expect it to replace your full-size vacuum cleaner any time soon.

Secondly, there are only a handful of attachments out there that extend the functionality of this canister vacuum. You can (and probably should) pick up a handful of Bissell accessories for other vacuums and try and fit them onto your Bissell Zing Bagless (or go after a couple of third-party options) if you’re really looking for a bit of specialization.

Otherwise, you’ll just have to try and make do.

Here’s What People are Saying About This Vacuum

People that have written a review for this vacuum cleaner online usually bring up the powerful suction the cyclonic vacuum technology in this unit is capable of. A number of reviewers talk about how it stacks up favorably against vacuum cleaners from Dirt Devil as well as from Eureka, at about one third or one half of the price!

Final Verdict

Choosing a canister vacuum can be a bit of an uphill battle. Thankfully, if you decide to go with the Bissell Zing Bagless canister vacuum, you won’t have to worry about it letting you down anytime soon – or breaking your bank account in the process!
