Bissell Perfect Sweep Turbo® Cordless Power Sweeper Review

I love to cook.  I love to cook a lot!  I love a clean kitchen (and by that I mean spotless).  I have a full time job and several full time hobbies (besides cooking).  There is not enough time to do all of the things I love and keep my kitchen clean. 

I am constantly on the lookout for things to help me achieve my goals and since my husband and I own a vacuum cleaner store, I have the luxury of trying out lots of cleaning gadgets and machines and writing these reviews.  One of the latest tools I have tried is the Bissell Perfect Sweep Turbo® Cordless Power Sweeper.  I am in love!  I keep it in my laundry room, which is just a few steps from my kitchen and use almost daily.  It is perfect for cleaning up whatever I just cooked (and spilled part of on the floor).  Did I mention that I am a messy cook, too? 

This sweeper picks up well, is easy to use and to dump and the charge lasts for several weeks because I only use it for quick pick-ups.  It is lightweight, easy to store and inexpensive!  What more could you ask for?
