The BISSELL Pet Hair Eraser Turbo Plus is an upright vacuum meant for cleaning up pet hair. If your pet sheds a lot, this vacuum can easily tackle hair on low and high-pile carpet. It's able to pick up most small and large debris on these surfaces too, and it comes with a crevice tool with an LED light to help you clean dark and difficult-to-reach places more efficiently. However, it struggles a bit more to clean hair as well as debris on bare floors, and it doesn't have a long range either, which can make it a little bit more difficult to clean stairs. It's also somewhat difficult to maintain and there are frequent recurring costs, depending on how often you use your vacuum. That being said, it's still very good for tackling pet hair, and you can even use a unique Febreze-scented pre-motor vacuum filter in it, which is advertised to help eliminate odors as you clean, although we don't currently test for this.
The BISSELL Pet Hair Eraser Turbo Plus is just acceptable for bare floors. While it has good maneuverability, it struggles a bit to pick up pet hair.

It's able to pick up all small debris like rice, though. That being said, this vacuum can be difficult to maintain and there are frequent recurring costs for replacing its filters.

The head of the vacuum has a headlight while the crevice tool has a LED light near the brush so you can illuminate hard-to-reach, possibly dark areas.
Unfortunately, while the brush rolls are removable, ten screws need to be taken out to get them out. The dirt compartment and turbo brush both feel like they could crack if dropped, which is a little disappointing. However, while there are a lot of pieces to assemble, everything fits well together, although the dirt compartment can be a little tricky to put back in place.
