Despite being a rather vivid shade of purple, the Bissell Zing 4122 initially looks like a rather average canister vacuum at first, with its small, round body, long hose and standard head. The specification promises two very important processes with this product: multi-surface cleaning, thanks to the use of the variable suction switch and telescoping wand, and a compact enough design for “cleaning on the go. This BISSELL Zing bagged vacuum 4122 Review will look at user pros and cons to see if such a basic-looking canister can really do all of this.
Bissell Zing Canister Vacuum for Hardwoord Floors
This Bissell Zing hardwood floor vacuum is a product that looks familiar but offers some interesting surprises alongside its basic benefits.
A compact, versatile design is what is advertised here and that is exactly what buyers have received. It is rare that vacuums work equally well on all surfaces but this Bissell Zing seems to be able to handle hardwood floors, rugs, carpets and furniture with ease. The compact size is a bonus for many apartment owners with limited space – a factor enhanced by the automatic cord rewind – but this size and the light weight also make it much easier to carry around the house. The promise was for cleaning on the go and it seems that apart from the odd report of the body rolling over, it follows users around the house pretty well.
While this compact nature and versatility is expected, there are some aspects that come as a surprise. The long length of the power cord may just be a small bonus for some buyers but many will appreciate the fact that the maximum suction setting is more powerful than expected as it really help to turn this standard machine into a helpful aid.
It seems that the designers of this BISSELL Zing vacuum have really considered the bonus features on the canister but the accessories less so.
There are some interesting features on this canister that help to make it more appealing than some of the other bagged canister vacuums around, notably the carry handle and full bag indicator; however, the additional attachments – the crevice tool, drapery brush and upholstery nozzle – are less impressive. Each piece has its purpose but they are quite small and simple in their performance and it is quite hard to take them off again. Elsewhere, some buyers have criticized the quality of the hose and wand, saying that they crack and leak air too easily.
The final verdict of this BISSELL Zing bagged canister 4122 review: is this basic-looking canister vacuum impressive enough to be recommended.
The lack of functionality on the attachments shows that there are some areas where this model could be improved a little but this is still a cheap-and-cheerful model at its heart – as is seen in the quality of the materials – and this actually makes the benefits that have been seen even more appealing. This Bissell Zing vacuum is still a highly recommendable model because of the way that the compact shape really benefits the user, the surprising amount of power that can be generated and the little touches that make it a user-friendly yet well-considered device.
