It isn’t just powerful suction that makes the Bissell Canister Vacuum the best vacuum for laminate floors, but several design choices that were picked to prevent damage to delicate surfaces. This is in addition to convenient features, like automatic cord rewind and a quick way of altering settings on the handle.

Why We Like It – Bissell Canister Vacuum

Lightweight and powerful, the Bissell Canister Vacuum doesn’t lose its suction power when switching from carpeting to hard flooring, even at a moment’s notice.

  • Alter settings quickly via the handle
  • Ideal choice for cleaning delicate surfaces
  • Automatic cord rewind
  • 1 liter dirt cup capacity


The power is coming from an electric outlet, so you’ll always get the full brunt of its suction power, whether it’s picking up dust or pet hair. The best feature here, however, is its ability to alter suction power on the handle itself, affecting its pre and post motor. Floor cleaning, after all, requires varying degrees of suction based on flooring.

Speed & Efficiency

Having good suction power is ideal for speed and efficiency; the more you have, less time it takes. The Bissell Canister Vacuums do a great job, and with features like an automatic cord rewind only lessens the time spent cleaning. Its multi surface cleaning is what’s key here that offers great efficiency.

Bin Capacity & Maintenance

Bin capacity takes a dive here, because 1 liters is not that much, half of the Shark Navigator Lift Away. But to be fair, it’s bagless—so no vacuum bags required. And if you clean your house regularly, the small capacity won’t be noticed often. Since this is not a wet dry upright vacuums canister, maintenance is kept to a minimum.


Made of mostly plastic and metal, the Bissell Canister Vacuum isn’t stronger or weaker than most vacuums of this make, and shares a similar design philosophy to the Bissell Zing Bagless Canister Vacuum Cleaners, unlike the centuries-past design of the Kenmore Elite Vacuum. The plastic does give it a sheen of cheapness, like it did with Zing Bagged Canister Vacuums, but otherwise extends its longevity if taken care of.


The Bissell Canister Vacuum is going to be your best friend if you have delicate flooring, like laminate. Its rubber legs prevent scratching, and the roller head that comes bundled inside is specifically designed to clean flooring like laminate and wood. On occasion, it’s advantageous to replace Bissell hard floor expert canisters cleaning products, but that’s rare. It’s still cheaper than a Dyson V8 Animal Cordless Vacuum Cleaner.

Bissell Canister Vacuum Wrap Up

Despite a small dust cup, the Bissell Canister Vacuum is a champion against cleaning delicate surfaces. There’s a quick swapping of heads and it’s ready to take on lamite and hardwood. On top of that, the ability to alter suction settings and automatic cord rewind is just icing on the cake.
