 Bissell Crosswave Review


 Getting Started and performance

The Bissell Crosswave is quite easy to setup and this was made even easier as it comes with a manual to help the user assemble the many accessories. Getting started is pretty easy and requires very little technical know-how. The Bissell Crosswave has amazing suction power coupled with its innovative brush roll accessories to ensure great results when cleaning.

Size and Portability

The Bissell Crosswave is not that manoeuvrable. With a swivel head that only turns to 25 degrees, it may not be able to easily reach some tight spaces for that deep clean. This could be a deal breaker for some people and some home layouts. It is therefore ideal for open spaces.


This heavily accessorised wet and dry vacuum cleaners is rather noisy, which is expected given the many extra additions found on its body.
