What our reviewer thought of the Bissell Crosswave…

We love the idea of a machine that will vacuum and clean floors at the same time so we were keen to test the new BISSELL CrossWave™. It promises to rid hard floors and rugs of unwanted dirt and dust, while simultaneously washing floors using the unique multi-surface brush roll.
Assembly was really simple and the only fiddly bit was mixing the cleaning fluid (included) with water in the tank and reinserting it into the machine.
We tested it first on a lino floor in the kitchen then on a large, deep-pile rug. The difference was most noticeable on the lino – within seconds it was doing its job, both vacuuming and cleaning and it easily picked up paw prints from my dog! It also did a great job on the rug - my only criticism is that it says it’s suitable ‘whatever flooring you have’ but it’s not deisgned for use on carpets. My large rug sits on a carpet so it is a bit inconvenient to need another machine to wash the carpet. However, it did clean the kitchen floor and the rug very satisfactorily.
After use all you have to do is fill the cleaning tray with clean water, fit the whole appliance into it, press the Hard Floor button and recline. Then you simply allow it to run for 15 seconds until all water is picked up, and your brush roller is clean. Easy.
While it has its drawbacks, if you have a large amount of hard flooring and pets who you are always cleaning up after, this is the appliance for you!
